The base chakra is connected to passion, life energy, sexuality, and the power to create. Motivation and survival. It provides all raw energy to all other systems of the body. Due to it being part of the ground it helps us to keep realistic and have a practical approach to life.

Red stimulates the activities of the root chakra. The red chakra is the most concentrated of the seven chakras.

As it is dense, it is the slowest of all the wavelengths within the visible spectrum, yet, it is the most stimulating colour.

Notice how the red colour draws your eyes so all of our energy and attention is focused towards it, it drags you in.

That’s why we use red colour for the stop lights and stop signs. The root chakra colour commands attention. It signals danger to us.

Try to focus on the red light that radiates from your base Chakra.

Remind yourself that you are in good health and in good sound mind.

Stand in your strength and in your truth.

Then, try to forgive yourself for neglecting your body in the past.

Then, start to love every part of your body, to love and feel the love that fills every cell which is filled with energy and power.

You can now stop to judge yourself negatively, only think yourself as beautiful.

Now, accept your greatness with all that you are.

Now, choose to have thoughts that add to your life, thoughts of love, compassion, harmony and peace.

Request to sleep in peace, to awaken in bliss and to enjoy living!

Take a deep breath in and acknowledge love.

Finally, accept and appreciate.
