Chakras are centers of energy, located on the midline of the body. There are seven of them, and they govern our psychological properties.
Muladhara (literally, “root support”) is located at the base of the spine. It is often depicted as a red four-petaled lotus, and it’s connected to the earth element.
Muladhara governs what are considered the four primal urges: food, sleep, sex, and self-preservation. Its energetic function is to help us maintain a sense of groundedness and inner stability.
Root chakra affirmation: “I am connected to the earth. I am strong and I am stable.”
