First Chakra Energy Center – The Root Chakra

Root Chakra Energy SystemThe root chakra, or base chakra sits at the bottom of the spine and is known for grounding and physicality. Learn how to balance and connect with your first chakra. It is the first of the main seven chakras in order from the spinal base to top of the head and shown by the color red in the photo to the left.

I have also written about the 2nd chakra, 3rd chakra, 4th chakra, 5th chakra, and 6th chakra.

Chakras are energy centers within our bodies. Each of the main seven chakras focuses on different areas of our body. The Muladhara root chakra, or first chakra, governs our physical world, grounding and connections with ourselves and others. It governs feelings of connecting yourself to the earth and being one with your physical surroundings.

Red and the First Chakra

Red represents the first chakra and fiery hot emotions, thoughts, and feelings. The types of negative emotions ruled by the root chakra include humiliation, embarrassment, belonging, crimes against our body, fear and grounding. It relates to the Earth element. These emotions can lead to this chakra being underdeveloped, almost as though it is in hiding. In order to balance this chakra, you first need to learn how to connect with it.

Connecting with your First Chakra

First imagine long roots extending from bottom of your spine and going deep into the ground. Imagine these roots traveling deep into the center of the earth, connecting with your core energy. Meditation is quite useful for learning to connect. Here are a few recommendations for meditation CD’s.

Learning to find love within yourself and accepting yourself as you are now can help to balance and align the energies in this chakra. By balancing the root chakra, you will begin to feel more in touch with who you really are as a human being and how you fit into this life. Approval of self has a lot to do with an unbalanced base chakra.

Chakra Balancing for the Root Chakra

The use of affirmations is a technique you can do almost anywhere, such as “I approve of myself”. Repeat this at least 50 times daily or as needed. It goes to your core being. I have used this particular affirmation and had great success with it as it helps you regain your center.

A barefoot walk in the grass in warmer weather is a wonderful way to balance the root chakra, as the earth under your feet helps to deepen your connection with source.

Essential Oils for the Root Chakra


Another way to balance the first chakra is burning a woodsy incense made up of sandalwood and cinnamon. These earthy scents balance the energies of our bodies to bring the chakra back into alignment. Here are two of my favorites: Golden Pavilion (Kin-kaku) and Abundance (Full Moon) both by Shoyeido Corporation.

Chakra Balancing Crystals

Try wearing a necklace or bracelet made with crystal stones like blood stone, hematite, and red jasper to stimulate the root chakra. Garnet, agate, onyx, ruby, black tourmaline, smoky quartz, and red corral are nice choices as well. is a wonderful place to shop for handmade jewelry using beautiful crystals like the ones mentioned.

Can your body, even your blood, vibrate with love?

Love or AboveLove is the secret to healing and it has a higher vibration. As you know, human beings are a spiritual entity that is having a physical experience. That means, you have an inner energy (spiritual) and your body (physical) is a reflection of your inner energy.

When we are having a disconnect with our inner energy or if our inner energy is disturbed, the physical part of it, the body, starts reflecting what’s underneath it. That’s where illnesses start. So by connecting with and raising your inner energy to the level of love, you can heal yourself effortlessly. You just need to know how to connect with your energy and turn it around and that’s what Christie Marie Sheldon is teaching in her Energetic Breakthrough Kit.

Yaay, I think I’m doing a lot of these things now, so hopefully my root chakra will not be so puny in future!

Also I’ve been taking cayenne pepper on a regular basis lately, which is giving me a lot more energy. Fiery stuff, but it works! 🙂

Oh, and I love woodsy scents, and I love Golden Pavilion incense too! I think that one is my favorite, in fact!

    Hi Jennifer!

    Yes, Golden Pavillion is one of my favorites. Come to think of it I haven’t purchased that one in a while. Hmm…a good reason to go visit my favorite metaphysical store this weekend.
