The Root Chakra, also called the Base Chakra, is located at the bottom of the spine. Its color is red. It relates to vitality, strength and security and is associated with survival, physical needs and tribal association. Having a balanced Root Chakra assists you in being grounded and living in a state of harmony with the people closest to you.
One way to balance the Root Chakra is through color therapy. You can apply the red color of the Root Chakra directly to your body through items like scarves or printed clothing. Another way is to gaze upon the color of the chakra like an open eyed meditation. Prints and wall hangings can be very useful for this. Simply sit with a relaxed stare and focus on the design.
