REVEALED: Myths of the Root Chakra - Vinaya

July 04, 2019 4 min read


The first of the chakras of matter. 

Our sense of being grounded, primal instincts, and survival.  

But what is it really? What does it do? 


Root Chakra Meaning

The Root Chakra is named Mūlādhāra in Sanskrit, the first chakra in the body’s chakra system.

It rules over survival, security, and our most basic needs such as food, sleep, shelter, and self-preservation. 

The center of our safety and security. 

Muladhara is responsible for strengthening ties with the material world. 

Through it, the energy of the Universe enters the terrestrial layers.

Chakras are the energy centers within the human body that help to regulate everything from organ function to our immune system and emotions.  

Through the root chakra, all living things are connected to the earth, from which, in fact, the birth and development of all of us depend.  

It makes us feel stable and abundant or it leaves us anxious and in-state or scarcity and lack.

Depending on it being blocked or flowing effortlessly. 

A balanced root chakra creates a solid foundation for the remaining six chakras. 

Location in the Body

 Found at the base of the spine, somewhere around the perineum and it corresponds to the section of the spine called the coccyx.

Earth Element

Relates to the earth element and therefore to all solid earthly things as for example our bodies, our health, our survival, our material, and monetary existence as well as our ability to manifest our needs. 

Root Chakra Color

Visualized as a deep vibrant red which is the color of the beginning, the color with the longest wavelength and the lowest vibration in the visible spectrum.

Root Chakra Symbol

The root chakra symbol is composed of a lotus flower with four petals.
It’s often stylized as a circle with four petals and a downward-pointing triangle.
It comes from the words Mula, which means root and Dhara, which means support.

Physical Manifestation

Low physical energy
The feeling of exhaust all the time
Lower back pain
Sciatica Hypertension

Healing Affirmations

I am here and I am safe

I am nourished and supported by Mother Earth

I am safe, protected and guided in this world

I release any doubts and fears

With every breath, I release the anxiety and fear within me

The Earth supports me and meets my needs

I am financially free

I love my body and trust its wisdom


When the Root Chakra is balanced, you feel safe, stable, strong and grounded.

You're ready to take on change and growth. 

So what is a balanced and unbalance root chakra supposed to be like?


Balanced Chakra

Good Health
Physically Fit
General Positivity
Strong Immune System
Feelings of Being Safe and Secure 

 Unbalanced Chakra

Fear and Insecurity
Weak Immune System
Susceptible to Craving and Addiction


If you believe that you may have a blocked or unbalanced Root Chakra, do not despair.

These blockages and imbalances may be corrected with affirmation, changes in your diet, Reiki, yoga, visualization and meditation with HEALING CRYSTALS. 



Root Chakra healing is the practice of opening, clearing, cleansing, supporting and strengthening the root chakra within our bodies.

Here are some of the healing crystals to balance your root chakra:


Use Red Jasper to enhance vitality, strength, and sexual passion. 

Red Jasper is a remarkable crystal for awakening the energetic kundalini “serpent” dwelling at the base of the spine.

The spiraling of this energy up through the body provides a powerful spiritual experience as it activates, clears and strengthens each of the chakras, infusing them with vital Life Force energies.


Use Black Tourmaline to stay grounded and protected from negative energies. 

Black Tourmaline may be used to activate grounding between the Root Chakra and the center of the Earth, providing further enhancement of one’s well-being on the physical plane


Grounding and protective. Help those feeling spaced. 

Tiger’s Eye grounds the energy of the Solar Ray into the Earth, stimulating the First through the Third Chakras.

It supports physical vitality, practicality, and maintaining a balance between extremes


Use Black Obsidian to cleanse negative energy and protection against psychic attack.

Their resonance within the base or root chakra is very strong, and they have a powerful vibration that aids you to ground yourself.


Use Red Carnelian to keep the healing vibrations near your base chakra during the day to keep it clear and active. 

Carnelian, in shades of red, is also a powerful ally in healing Root Chakra blockages and traumas, aiding one in recovering vital information about oneself and one's purpose on Earth. 

It's always best to HEAL and REALIGN your CHAKRAS.
