The First Chakra: Root Chakra

Root Chakra
Muladhara, or Root Chakra, is located at the base of the spine. It is symbolized by the color red and a lotus with four petals. Muladhara represents the center of instincts, stability of mind and body, survival and self-sufficiency. A positive balance in the Muladhara Chakra would be mental and physical health and prosperity. It is related to the adrenal glands and gonads.

May I be able to nourish and nurture myself, be grounded, stable, and feel connected to the oneness of life/universe.
