Root Chakra : Muladhara
Color : Red

Muladhara, rightfully dissected into the meaning of “root” and “support”, is located at the Base of your spine, and thus being closest to the Earth. This Chakra connects you most to your mortal needs and human instincts, of survival. For the majority of us in current times, survival means financial security and emotional stability. We often seek these two things for our entire lives. “Ground your Energy” – a saying you often hear in Yoga and Meditation; The Root Chakra essentially regulates Fear – our body’s natural instinct to keep us alive. In an Overactive Root Chakra, You will feel the physical symptoms start to manifest in the lower half of your body, resulting in abnormal bowel movements and back pain. Pay attention and do not ignore! Practice GRATITUDE in conjunction with Gemstones like Red Jasper and Garnet, to combat your body’s anxiousness. Being thankful will give you a sense of accomplishment, no matter how small, and see that all accomplishments matters. Practicing Gratitude is a tool you can use to recognize the positives in areas that you perceive as inadequacies. See the glass more than a half full, and you will soon realize that have all you need to survive. Ground yourself, and the human experience becomes more and more beautiful. An underactive Root Chakra might result in a lack of focus. You may stimulate this by connecting with nature in some way, even a 10 minute walk in the Sun will help tremendously.

Wrist / Ankle Measurement
- It is important for us to make your bracelet or anklet to fit exactly where you want it.-
(*For anklet buyers, you may measure your ankle just the same way as you measure your wrists.) 
Measuring around your wrist or ankle is different than measuring a bracelet or anklet from end to end lengthwise.
Please note: Different bead sizes affect the the measurement of your bracelet lengthwise. Regardless of bead size, the inside circumference of your bracelet is all the same. 

Here's how to measure your wrist: Wrap around your wrist using a thin flexible measuring tape, and measure where you would like to wear your bracelet
*No need to add extra length. We add close to a 1/4 inch to each bracelet for your comfort.

No problem!

If you don't have a flexible measuring tape handy, you may use a strip of thin paper or a thin string (be sure they are thin). Wrap and mark where it overlaps on your wrist, and then lay the strip or string flat to measure up to the mark using a standard ruler.
