first chakra  : Mûlâdhâra (Root Chakra, Base Chakra)

Its Sanskrit name means "  root place  “, it is positioned at the bottom of the spine. The color of this Chakra is red, the color of Shakti. "Shakti" means energy, movement, awakening and development.

As for red, it symbolizes the awakening of the sleeping consciousness towards the active and alert consciousness. The animal that represents him is an elephant with seven trunks. The elephant is the symbol of wisdom. Its element is the Earth, our base and our “mother”, which provides us with energy and nourishment.

The mantra to awaken it is the monosyllable LAM .

This Chakra represents the boundary between animal consciousness and human consciousness. It is linked to the unconscious, the receptacle in which the actions and experiences of our past lives are stored. Thus, according to Karmic Law, the Mûlâdhâra Chakra contains the course of our future destiny. It is the basis of the development of our personality.

Its function is to manage our individual survivability. Its positive attributes are vitality, vigor and growth.

Its negative points are laziness, inertia, egocentrism and domination by our physical desires.

This Chakra is involved in everything related to home, money, security and trust. Linked to the secondary Chakras of the feet, it provides most of the energy we use. Closely linked to what we consider to be our foundations, it governs the notions of family, work and security. It is also this Chakra that allows us to feel what is outside us and therefore to experience the physical world around us.
