The root chakra is the red energy center located at the base of the spine. It’s referred to as Muladhara in Sanskrit and is the first chakra. Muladhara is our root chakra, and affects our right to be here, our security, and our connection with our physical body. The root chakra is associated with the earth and fall is a great time to work on balancing and healing this energy center. The changing weather and colors, in conjunction with the fall harvest provide an example of the importance of grounding, creating deep roots, and our connection to mother earth as a source of strength.

To cleanse it run it under cold water, place it in the sun for an hour, or leave it out under the full moon. Once it’s clean you’ll want to charge it with your intention. One way to do this is to hold it in your hand, picture light around it, and say, “I dedicate this crystal to the highest good of all, may it be used in light and love. I program this crystal for ____.” Then place it in your sacred space, carry it with you, or keep it near your computer or other electronics where it will absorb electromagnetic energy. Clean it again when it begins to look dull.
