The Root Chakra, which is also known as the Base Chakra, is the first chakra in the subtle energy system. This chakra is located at the base of the spine or the tailbone. It's the chakra which we ground to the Earth through, and so it's the chakra of security and stability. It's also the chakra connecting us to the material world. When you're working with this chakra, it's a lot about your survival instincts and basic human needs for shelter, food, water and clothing. It's also about the connection with other people and fostering loving and nurturing relationships. Through the Root Chakra, we are able to ground into the Earth and find our stability in life and be nurtured with Earth energy. When working on balancing this chakra, it's helpful to spend time in nature or with plants. That is something we need to make a point of doing in our technological world.
This is also the chakra you'll work with if you need to ground yourself so you can be aware of your surroundings and present in your body. So many times, we detach and go into a state that is separated from what is happening around us. To be fully present, we must ground ourselves and also accept the emotions we are feeling and process them in a way that allows us to work through them and not against them. In turn, having this groundedness and awareness of your emotions will help you take on any challenges that come your way in life. Many of the crystals used to help this chakra are red or black since these are very grounding colours. You can work with these crystals by meditating with them or by holding them when you need to remind yourself to ground and be present.
