So that we have positive energy again and force attracted to life, it is necessary to unblock the root chakra and absorb new energy from the environment. So how do we unblock the Muladhara, which is the first of 7 chakras?

Why is the first Chakra referred to by both the words "Root" and "Muladhara"?

The first energy point, according to yogic and Hindu traditions, is the foundational and essential energy center of every human being. So, first chakra could be referred to by both terms. Each carrying its own symbolism and meaning for us.

In Sanskrit, the word "Muladhara" combines significant attributes. "Mula" in this word represents the root, and "Adhara" signifies the base or support. The literal Sanskrit translation of the word "Muladhara" is, therefore, the root foundation. This word reflects the Chakra's significance as the fundamental energy flow system within a person.

In English, the first energetic center is called the Root Chakra. This name describes its location at the base, the root, of the Chakra system, as it is the 1st of the seven Chakras. "Root Chakra" is a simpler term for those who may not be familiar with Sanskrit, allowing for a more straightforward understanding of the first Chakra's meaning, location, and function.

As we mentioned before, if your Muladhara is blocked, you can become depressed and your thoughts are no longer cheerful and positive.
