The root chakra, or Muladhara, is a great starting point in learning about the chakras as it relates to our physical well-being, safety, and security. It’s often compared to the foundation of a house and what better place to focus on healing your mind, body, and emotions than your “roots” or foundation.
What is Root Chakra Healing?
Chakras are energy centers within the body that regulate, store, and distribute energy. There are seven main chakras that run along the spine. Each chakra relates to specific areas of the body and impacts the mind, emotions, and spirit. Chakra healing is the practice of opening, clearing, cleansing, supporting, and strengthening these energy centers within the body. Certain foods, sounds, smells, colors, crystals, yoga practices, affirmations, and other holistic remedies are some of the many ways to heal a chakra.
