Muladhara Chakra is the base or foundation of all other Chakras. ‘Mula’ means ‘root’ and ‘adhara’ means ‘support’ or ‘base’. This chakra stands for the root of your existence in this world. It is the primary energy foundation of your body. In this chakra, you relate to your physical wellbeing and it is the centre of energy grows your roots into the physical world to get nourished with support and stability. It stresses the significance of standing on your own feet to accept and survive the challenges of life.

Muladhara Chakra is like a teacher who takes care of a pupil, looking after his or her needs until the pupil is ready to stand on its feet and be responsible for his or her own life. Just like that teacher, the Muladhara Chakra constitutes the basis and starting point for your growth or development. It links you up with the nurturing energy of Mother Earth who represents grounding, stability and support that you need throughout your life. Located at the base of the spinal column, it is associated with your skeletal system, pelvis, hip, legs and the excretory system. It is this Chakra that sustains the entire body consciousness. Of all the elements of material nature, it is the seat of Earth element which represents the qualities of strength (physical body), structure (skeleton) and support (limbs).

Hence, this chakra plays a very essential and crucial role in developing your roots upon which your entire life grows. Another aspect of this chakra is that it is associated with the ‘purpose’ of your life. It defines why were you born? A stronger Muladhara Chakra helps you realize your purpose in life and you go ahead accordingly.

When you feel unsupported, spaced-out, and weak or wavering in your determination, know that your Root Chakra is out of harmony or balance. As a result, your skeletal system, feet, legs, knees, hips and pelvis get affected.

Root (Muladhara) Chakra indicates our survival, support and safety. The lesson of this Chakra is that you must support yourself at personal or professional level. This will automatically attract support from the Universe. If your Root Chakra is optimally balanced, you would tend to have a strong sense of security and practicality. And if blocked, it makes you lose a sense of belonging and have weak physical structure. You may have problems with bones, weight and having enough money for survival.
