Muladhara or The Root Chakra is your primary point of balance located at the base of the spine. When your root chakra is active, clear and functioning properly you feel safe and supported. When unbalanced it can affect every aspect of your life.
Your root chakra is your center, your stability. Think of the roots of a tree. No matter what goes on above ground, the roots hold the tree in place and draw from the earth the nutrients the tree needs.
Crystals like Smokey Quartz, Citrine, Black Tourmaline, Jet, Onyx, Carnelian or any brown crystal (think - earth, brown - grounding) can be used to help ground and bring strength, healing and protection. Hold the crystals in your hand and set your intention. Place them around the home or office, in your car or keep in your pocket. Root down and lift up!
Don't forget to thank your crystals and cleanse them by placing them on a windowsill to charge by the sun and moon. You can also cleanse them by smudging them with sage, palo santo or incense or lay them on top of a piece of selenite.
