The root chakra
Also called Muladhara, the root chakra is the first chakra. He is usually represented by an elephant with seven trunks and a red lotus with four petals. Its color is red and it is linked to the sense of smell and the Earth element. It is located between the anus and the genitals.
The root chakra is related to security, stability and basic needs. Linked to family and ancestors, it provides strength and stability.
Well balanced, it makes you feel confident and safe. When it is weakened, fear takes over and is accompanied by instability, anxiety or the feeling of not being in its place. When, conversely, it contains too much energy, manifest anger, greed and exacerbated materialism.
