All About the Root Chakra

We recently completed Root Chakra Week on our Facebook page, and we thought we'd compile all that information into a blog post! Please use this post to refer back to as needed for information about the Root Chakra.

The Root Chakra or Muladhara Chakra is located at the base of the spine and is associated with security, family, and feeling grounded. Primal instincts and our more earthly thoughts and actions are all root chakra. Stresses related to survival, including financial, professional and housing indicate that you need to realign your root chakra.


The colour associated with the root chakra is red. Red is a very physical colour. It promotes a feeling of being grounded and connected to the earth. This colour brings to mind thoughts and feelings of survival and instinct. Red can make you feel alert, vigilant and primal.


Any high vibrational foods with red pigment or grounding properties can help recharge the root chakra:

  • Tomatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Beets
  • Pomegranates
  • Raspberries
  • Protein
