The Root Chakra
The root chakra is located at the very base of our spine. In Sanskrit this is known at the Muladhara chakra and its colour is red.
If we feel that we belong within a community we will have a strong sense of connection and our chakra is nice and balanced. We will feel safe and most likely have a strong connection with others in our family or local community.
AFFIRMATION FOR THIS CHAKRA:
"I am connected to all of life."
"I choose to see how I am connected with all of life."
