1º Chakra: Muladhara

1º Chakra: Muladhara

Located on Mount Shasta in California, it is considered the root chakra of the planet. It is here that the universal life force is generated to create life.

The root chakra represents our foundation. On the human body, it sits at the base of the spine and gives us the feeling of being grounded. When the root chakra is open, we feel confident in our ability to withstand challenges and stand on our own two feet. When it's blocked, we feel threatened, as if we're standing on unstable ground.

Body Location: Base of spine, in tailbone area

What it controls: Survival issues such as financial independence, money, and food

Mantra: "I can't grow from an unsteady foundation."

Colour: Red

Element: Earth

Stone: Hematite

When it develops: 1-7 years old

You can view all the Chakras on the Woody Map Namaste World and customise your map with the accompanying stickers.
