The color of the Root Chakra is red and is one for stability; to provide for our basic needs (survival instincts) and is the foundation for the expansion of our life. This chakra is located at the perineum and influences the prostate, penis, uterus, vagina, bladder, lower bowel and anus. Therefore, it influences sexual things and elimination. Hormones of testosterone in men, and progesterone and estrogen in women are influenced by this energy center. When this chakra is balanced, or “open,” we feel safe, secure, creative and fearless.
If your root chakra is out of balance, you may feel that making decisions could be difficult, you may feel unsafe, anxiety and negativity towards yourself and others. If imbalanced, it can also be linked towards eating disorders and greed.
