Crystals for the Root Chakra

By LiveWell Community

The Root Chakra or the Muladhara Chakra is the first of the seven chakras.  It is located at the base of the spine and holds our feelings of safety, security, sense of grounding and connectivity to the world around us.  This chakra is represented by the colour red.  Choosing crystals of this colour, or that match this chakras frequency, can help bring this energy centre back into balance.

When the chakras are in balance, it allows energy to flow freely throughout the body.  Helping us to feel balanced and in harmony.  How do you know when your root chakra is out of balance?  Look out for the following signs;

When this chakra is in balance you will feel stable and secure in yourself and your surroundings.  Promoting feelings of courage to face the world around you.  You are grounded and centred.
