THE ROOT CHAKRA

ITS PLACE AND MEANING

From the Sanskrit, MŪLĀDHĀRA, the root chakra is associated with the area at the base of the spine. Originally those who practiced tantric yoga and worked with the root chakra would have visualized a subtle, spinning, metaphysical red, four leafed lotus flower

When working with the root chakra, you should remember that the practice is primarily one of visualization and the purpose is to bring you closer to the divine: for the kundalini, the energy of creation, to rise up through all of the chakras until it meets the divine

To facilitate visualization and activation of the root chakra, it has been associated with colors, elements, organs, crystals, archangels, positive human values and foods. These connections should be recognized as channels that we can use to help us release the energy and to bring us closer to our connection with the divine

It is common to associate the color red and the element of earth with the root chakra

The mantra, LAM being the seed-mantra of the earth element is usually used when invoking the root chakra. However, there is no reason to only use the energies of LAM. Should you feel too earthy or fail to visualize the kundalini rising-up through the root chakra, there is every reason to work with the seed-mantra for the other elements, water (VAM), fire (RAM), wind (YAM) and space (HAM)
