by KG Stiles, LMT, RBT, CBP, CAT
“Cultivate the Root and the Leaves & Branches Will Take Care of Themselves.”
Confucius 551 – 479 BC Chinese philosopher
1st Chakra (Muladhara or Base) ~ EARTH ~ RUBY RED ~ STABILITY & SECURITY
Balancing Your First Chakra: The Muladhara (Base or Root) Chakra is situated at the perineum, between the genitals and the anus, the power of earth. From Sanskrit Muladhara can be translated as, “That which Holds the Base or Root.” Its element is Earth and its color is Ruby Red. Here lies the call “to be” our destiny and realization of our potential. Your Kundalini Seed potential rests, slumbers, here awaiting activation.
The flowering of this chakra is the mature person who walks steadily towards their destiny. It is here you are awakened to your deepest and most profound potential in which all aspects of your body, mind and spirit are integrated and expressed.
CHAKRA BALANCING Keywords: Stability, cohesion, self-reliance, personal boundaries, synthesis
This is the Root of your Kundalini energy, your Pranic or Life Force Energy. Your connection to nature, universal laws, and your physical body is located here.

Emotional stagnation or blockage at your 1st Chakra emits an energy frequency that resonates with feelings of being disconnected from one’s tribe, community or family, or even from one’s self. The sense of not belonging gives rise to feelings of frustration, rage and blocked passion, emotional instability, self indulgence, self-centeredness, insecurity, grief, loss, depression. There is conflict between attachment and letting go.
