The 1st chakra is the most important one, as it is the entry point into the body and provides access to all the other chakras. Ironically, most people have blockages in the 1st chakra and can’t manifest or channel the information, while thinking they are bad manifestors. Usually, the problem lies in the interrupted flow between the chakras.

Root chakra lies at the bottom of the spine. It is a lotus flower with four petals and it shines in a red color, representing the earth element. In the center of a lotus is a seed mantra syllable लं Lam with a triangle pointing down. Each petal has its own sanskrit syllable, meaning:

  • greatest joy
  • natural pleasure
  • delight in controlling passion
  • blissfulness in concentration
