Mulādhāra (Root)

Mulādhāra (Root Chakra

At the base of the spine, lies the root chakra. This chakra is where we find the deepest connection to the Earth, the very basic insticts of survival and self-preservation.

A healthy root chakra connects you with vitality to your family of origin, your immediate society and to the global community. If your 0-7 years were challenging and without love, then this damaged root chakra will function much differently. Issues of survival such as emotional dysfunction, stress, anxiousness, and restlessness will plague you.

You’ll have fears of letting go, scarcity, poor boundaries, and more. It’s during the 0-7 years that we learn about where we fall in our relationships with siblings, parents, our community, and how we relate to them.

Health issues: Joint pain, lower backache, elimination problems, obesity, constipation, anorexia, and poor immune system function.
