Are you feeling stuck or lifeless? The 7 chakras are centers of energy that move through the subtle body, starting from the crown of the head and traveling down to the base of the spine.  Each chakra allows energy to flow through the human body. But, if one of these is blocked, your well-being might suffer. 

This comprehensive blog will help you to understand Root Chakra in-depth, such as what it is, where is root chakra located, and the best ways to heal while using meditation, Root Chakra affirmations, and yoga. 

What is Root Chakra (Muladhara)?

What is Root Chakra (Muladhara)?

The word Muladhara is composed of 2 Sanskrit words: “mula” which means “root” and “adhara” meaning “support”, and it is the first chakra in the body. It is a chakra from which true health, empowerment, and well-being grow. 

It is found between the perineum and the lower spine. Sometimes it is linked to adrenal glands and the anus, due to its location. Whenever this energy center is balanced, one feels confident, strong, and grounded. On the other hand, a blocked Root Chakra can lead to feelings of insecurity, stress, loss of personal bearing, and anxiety. 

Some of its characteristics include-

  • It is located at the base of the spine.
  • Root Chakra is associated with the Earth element.
  • This Chakra is represented by the red color.
  • It is associated with the feelings of survival, security, and safety. 

What are the Characteristics of the Root Chakra?

1. Symbol

The Root Chakra symbol consists of an inverted triangle, a square with a four-petalled lotus flower, and the seed mantra LAM symbol in the center. The four-petalled lotus represents 4 elements which are earth, air, fire, and water, which unite to form prakriti or the physical world. 

2. Element

The energies of Root Chakra help in acknowledging our strong connection to the earth. Keeping us rooted in our inner self helps in spreading happiness, and positivity in life. It also relates to and represents basic, primary needs, support, survival, and stability. Thus, proper regulation of the earth’s elements is essential for our good health.

3. Mental Health, Emotions, and the Root Chakra

A Root Chakra balancing provides emotional strength which helps us in feeling secure and grounded. Conversely, imbalanced chakra can lead to more stress, and mental illnesses which might affect our physical wellness. Some other emotions that are linked to this energy center are-

  • Grounded feeling
  • Secured feeling
  • Feeling safe
  • Self-preservation
  • Survival mindset

4. Color

All the chakras are made up of energy, they don’t have any color. But each of the 7 chakras reflects the colors or their surroundings as well as elements. Root Chakra is surrounded by the element earth which reflects a deep red color. The red color is associated with emotional as well as physical needs of self-preservation and survival.

5. Mantra

Each chakra in our body has sounds that arise from its movements. The combined sound of all these is known as the seed mantra. Langm is the seed mantra of Muladhara. During Root Chakra meditation, chanting this mantra can help activate energy centers and bring balance to the chakra system.

What Does Root Chakra Imbalance Look Like?

Benefits of Root Chakra

The root chakra is incredibly important in many wellness practices such as-

  • The root chakra is like the foundation of the energy system and it is located at the base of the spine providing a sense of security and stability. 
  • This chakra connects us to the physical world and grounds us, helping us feel present in the moment and more in touch with nature.
  • It influences our physical vitality and endurance. When balanced, it helps keep our body strong and supported.
  • The root chakra impacts our feelings of safety and security. A balanced root chakra healing helps reduce anxiety and fear.

Hi, Avisha : You are an incredibly gifted tarot card reader and the reading with you recently was truly an enlightening experience. Your readings are both insightful and accurate, providing valuable guidance and direction for those seeking answers. Your intuition and ability to connect with the cards is truly remarkable. You have a deep understanding of the tarot and how to interpret the meanings of the cards. The reading was delivered with compassion and understanding, and I left feeling reassured and positive. Your ability to help people gain clarity and direction in their lives is admirable. Your readings are not only precise but also very helpful in providing deeper understanding. You possess a unique talent in deciphering and interpreting the messages of the cards. I appreciate the time and energy you put into every reading. Most importantly you said exactly same as what my horoscope guru has told before. I thank you for sharing your gifts with me.

"One of the best experiences of my life! I have worked with many healers, but the experience with Avisha was unique. Above all, we covered and healed as many areas in 11 days as we would “normally” in 4 months. With her range of knowledge, she is a real gift to anyone who will work with her."

Often heard that " life is a roller coaster", experienced this recently.

Life is unpredictable, what is happening next is next to impossible to explain, a time came in my life where there was darkness everywhere, my sister was inch by inch by my side. Lots of talks, discussions, and solutions were done but all in vain. Then my sister introduced me to Avisha Mathur.

Words fail to describe her. If you are stuck in life and have lost your direction of life Avisha is the google.

Right from the first meeting my problems became smaller and smaller and I became clearer and clearer. She is a perfect blend of not less and not too much. Her tough and appropriate counselling gave me an awakening and nudge to move away from the inflicted dilemmas, she helped me to come out of my mental loop of problem and solution. She made me realize that the remote control of my life is in my hands.Avisha guided me like a small child lost in woods .My life is still under construction but now I know which step to take next.

A big difference, a huge change and I regained my lost smile which was very dear to me. Thank you Avisha. Buzz her if vou are stuck in life. # rise above the problems with AVISHA.

I connected with Dr Avisha at the lowest point in my life (both personally and professionally). I had lost my confidence and doubted myself even for simple tasks.

Routine jobs would overwhelm me.

I couldn't talk to my dear ones and gradually felt disconnected from everyone. A painful miscarriage made me realize that i needed help.

Trealised how paralysed i was with all the negative thoughts and energy inside me. That's when i took 11 day session with Dr. Avisha, who was referred by a common friend. In the first session itself i could feel a connect with her and conversing with her (online) came very easy to me. What amazed me the most was how Dr. Avisha could perceive my feelings even when we were not talking. So after 3-4 sessions, one day i was troubled by something and i had a restless night going through the issue. In the next session Dr. Avisha told me how she could feel me having a debate last night (which i was doing mentally with my self).

Other sessions revealed how i was affected by my childhood events and how i can let go of my thoughts and inhibition to be myself again. Her non-judgmental and kind conversations helped me to be true to myself. After the 11 day session, i really did feel as if the mist of negative energy was lifting away from me. Gradually i took hold of my life and started bringing in positive changes in my routine which boosted my mental and physical health. Her sessions helped me find myself again and de-clutter my negative thoughts.

Since her sessions, i feel more confident in taking charge of my life. earlier i used to find various reasons for how i will fail a task and now even when i find myself in a challenging situation, i find a solution. Her continued support for the last one year has kept me being mentally stronger and more active.
Much gratitude

v\Living away from parents, siblings itself takes a toll on your health mind and soul, that too during the covid times, when you had no idea whether you will meet your dear ones again...

During these dreadful times, I came across Dr Avisha's energy healing sessions.

It was the bestest thing that happened to me during those tiring times.

It brought a ray of sunshine in my gloomy mind.

It made me relaxed not only physically but also mentally.

The energy healing sessions with her were the best part of the day and slowly the therapy lead me into positivity. It gave me hopes and made me a happy healthy soul.

I would totally recommend these beautiful healing session to everyone who is having a hard time in their lives.
