CHAKRA ONE (BASE OR ROOT)
Your first chakra is located at the base of your spine. It corresponds to your coccyx bone and your coccygeal plexus, the lowest nerve bundle in your body. Each chakra has an elemental correspondence and this one is Earth because it represents form, stability and your most concentrated state of matter so it is at the lowest end of your chakra spectrum. Visualize this chakra in a deep vibrant red. Red is the color of beginning, the color of life. It is also the color with the longest wave length in the human spectrum of sight.
The Sanskrit name for this Chakra means 'root' or support. This is it's job, it is your first line of support in your energy system. Your sciatic nerve runs from this chakra area to the ground. This nerve keeps you connected to the sustaining Earth.
Here is where your survival impulses are. Things like food, shelter, clothing and the health of your physical body. Your energies must be balanced, just like everywhere else. If you are too worried about these things they dominate your life and you can't live well. You need these things to love but you can't be overly concerned about them.
When you are properly connected to Nature (the Earth, sky, seasonal changes and animals) you will be more balanced in all of your life. You still have these issues, enough money to buy what you need, a job to make the money you require, and a way to get to the places you need to get to. All of these issues are here in your first chakra.
If you are out of balance here you can get sick, feel spacey, depressed, or too attached to 'things' of the physical world, (being a hoarder, or shop too much)
You know you are balanced here when all of your basic needs are comfortably met and you aren't worried about your survival and you feel that all is right in your world.
The goal of chakra one is to make you consciously aware of what is going on in your body so you know when something is "off" and when it is right. It is also to make you aware that the physical world is not your goal, it is a tool for you to use to learn what you were put here to learn.
