Emotional Issues:  Survival Issues such as financial independence, money and food.

It represents our foundation and feeling of being grounded. The root chakra is the first chakra in the body’s chakra system. This chakra has an earth energy, and it’s associated with the feeling of grounding and safety.  It can be found at the base of the chakra system, and it lays the foundation for expansion in your life.  The root chakra is sometimes known as Muladhara chakra because of its feminine energy. Muladhara chakra is the first of the seven chakras.  It governs the functioning of the lower part of the body, including the lower back, lower spine, kidneys, and bladder.

Psychologically, it rules your survival instincts and your sense of confidence. It helps you choose whether to fight or step back.  The root chakra is associated with the physical body and its connection to the Earth.  Just like a foundation, it gives much importance to the basics of survival, such as food, shelter, safety, and a sense of comfort and belonging.

On a spiritual level, red colour chakra inspires energy and passion, movement, and change.


Red is an action colour. It moves, rouses, and guides you towards change. It’s the colour of progress, movement, and revolution. It fills you with daring and courage, but also with love.
Its energy inspires you to strengthen your commitments, as well as to trust in people and what the universe has in store for you.  But there are also challenges when it comes to red colour chakra energy. It makes you stubborn and unwilling to change or expand your point of view.


This color commands attention, and people are drawn to it because it’s ambitious and practical.


Red root chakra color energy gives you concentration and clear thinking. It helps you set goals and prioritize them, and it gives support so that you can overcome your challenges.
When there’s too little red chakra energy in your life, it causes poor focus. It also causes you to become disorganized. It often results in pessimism and narrow thinking.

No discussion of red color chakra would be complete without talking about its energy to attract abundance, prosperity, and financial health. It’s the main color for prosperity and manifestation, after all.
If you feel like you need a salary raise, or if you want to be more financially independent, bring more red in your life to increase your prosperity!
