You are here: > > Base Chakra

The base chakra or root chakra is located at the base of the spine. It is also known as the first chakra, as it is the first of the seven major chakras.

This chakra is associated with feeling comfortable sexually as well as with your ability to feel grounded.

This is the area of the body where your ambitions, interest in life and sex drive originates.

This chakras meaning is strongly associated with the concept of 'I am'. This chakra is all about the physical aspects of life and physicality. It has strong links with your feelings, and with pleasure and pain.

Where Is The Base Chakra? Chakra Meanings

The base chakras meanings relate to the sex drive, procreation, circulation, support structure, survival, base instincts and protection.

It is strongly associated with the colors red or black as both resonate strongly here, but there are some stones of other colors that aid this area.

If this chakra is healthy you have a strong desire to live, and you feel the drive to survive and to create change when and where needed.

The red root chakra stones, like Red Jasper or Ruby are especially useful to assist you to increase your sex drive, aid relationships and improve your interest in life generally.

Which Chakra Stones To Use

Before you use any specific crystal with this chakra I advise the use of Kyanite. Kyanite comes in many colors and all of them are effective healers.

Use any color of Kyanite before you use other stones. Kyanite's action on the body is to bring all of the chakras into alignment.

If you can, get some Black Kyanite as it is an excellent base chakra stone. Not only will it clear energy in all chakras, but it can also replenish the meridian system.

Some people may have had surgery in the lower back or in the lower stomach area.

If you have suffered from any accidents where there may have been damage done there, Kyanite will help to heal the area by bridging the energy gaps.

Blue Kyanite is the most common variety of Kyanite, and works well on all chakras.

After you have used Kyanite it would be best to follow by using the individual chakra stones for the first chakra. The stones for this chakra are powerful to ensure a robust sex drive, good circulation in the reproductive areas, and a strong interest in living life to the full.

Some of these are easier to find than others and of course the cost varies as well, but those mentioned are a good selection of stones in the chakra colors.

Root Chakra Colors

The base or root chakra resonates to the color of red. It is possible to buy quite a few varieties of red crystals.

Using any of the red crystals is extremely helpful, as they will bring through vitality and may aid your personal relationships.

Almandine GarnetRed Almandine Garnet

Some of my favorites are Rhodolite Garnet, the dark red Almandine Garnet, Eudialyte, Red Jasper, Red Coral and of course the beautiful Red Rubies.

The red root chakra stones are particularly powerful to aid you to increase your sex drive and interest in life.

To heal this chakra many of the black stones are also very powerful. This is also because of the grounding aspect of them.  Stones such as Black Andradite Garnet, Black Tourmaline, Black Kyanite, Black Onyx, Black Spinel and Black Obsidian Stone, are extremely useful in this area, as are Smokey Quartz Crystals.

The stones for the root chakra are made up of both the red and black stones and as well there are also a number of other colored stones, so the list is quite long.

There may be even more than are on the list, which is located at the end of this article, and I am adding to them as I find new stones and add them to the site. 

How Will It Help You?

This chakra is the lowest of the above ground chakras.

If you need to ground your energy by making a connection to Mother Gaia, you can unite with the Earth and to the earth star chakra through this chakra.

As the dark base chakra crystals have a strong grounding vibration keeping them within your aura is highly beneficial. 

Black Tourmaline is one of the more well liked of the dark stones for this chakra.

They are popular crystals as they have some powerful attributes, including creating an excellent grounding action. There are a good number of other stones that assist this area, and it is easy to buy many of the stones shown on this page.

To use them, one solution is to wear them as jewelry, as it is a simple way to keep them close to you. Using the dark stones can be an easy and powerful method to achieve spiritual grounding.

To use them to benefit you, you can wear them on your body as jewelry, or simply put a combination of any of these natural crystals in a pouch in your pocket.

Reason To Use Root Chakra Stones

The root chakra is the area that governs the sexuality, so if you have been feeling any lack of sexual interest, the energy of the red stones may assist you.

The chakra color for the first chakra is primarily the color red.

Red is a stimulating color and lovely jewelry pieces are made using red stones, including Ruby. It is a bright stone that makes beautiful jewelry.

Rubies are very popular, and you will find them made into gemstone or crystal jewelry, either alone or in combination with other red stones.

You can mix various stones that suit this chakra, and you may notice that there are stones of other colors that help this chakra.

Any stone shown on this page will help to bring though the strong fire energy needed by the base chakra. If you feel the energy of this chakra area is not in balance, take action to change it.

Each chakra has specific areas of the body it governs and this chakra ensures the function and healing of the organs in its area. These organs are the genitals and the colon, as well as the legs, joints and feet.

How To Use Root Chakra Stones

Although the chakra color for this chakra is said to be red, this chakra resonates to both the red and black crystals. There are even stones of other colors that work well within this chakra.

Natural crystals in either the red color, or those stones that are the darker brown or black colors will be beneficial to aid this chakra.

Lovely Smokey Quartz pendants are available and as this is a variety of quartz it has the added natural advantage of amplifying the energy of both itself and other stones that are used with it.

Attractive Smokey Quartz jewelry is easy to buy, and it makes lovely pendants, and there are many beautiful pieces made from the dark stones.

These include pendants that combine a few crystals together, like the one shown here that contains Smoky Quartz Crystal, Purple Amethyst and Black Tourmaline, mixed together in one pendant.

Keeping these healing stones on you will bring through the grounding needed. This is especially important if you have also been working with any of the higher vibration crystals.

If you are wondering how to heal the root chakra, make sure to use these crystals as often as possible.

Balance the First Chakra

Often people ignore the needs of the base chakra, preferring to work on the more spiritual areas like the crown chakra.

But you will find that if your first chakra is balanced, you may more easily ground any excess energy, created by your work on the higher chakras.

It is important to do spiritual grounding practices regularly, and it is good to do a grounding meditation. There are a number of health issues you can get from being ungrounded.

This is especially important if you have been working with the more 'spiritual' high vibration stones, to prevent you from developing health problems. Grounding yourself and clearing the base chakra will allow you to bring through greater contentment and happiness.
