Muladhara — general information and ways to improve the work of the chakra
Muladhara Chakra acts as the initial chakra of the human body (or in other sources known as the “root”). The name of the chakra from Sanskrit is translated as «base» or «root».

Muladhara Chakra is responsible for what

In girls, the development of the energy of the root chakra is much weaker, so she is looking for such a man with a well-developed muladhara who can provide her stability, confidence, and help balance the overflowing feelings and emotions.

- in men, it can be found at the beginning of the perineum (anatomically, the chakra is tied to the prostate gland);
- in women, in the area of the ovaries (anatomically not attached to any organ).

Chakra work too active, past reincarnations

For women, it is more passive, as the young ladies should be engaged in creating comfort, maintaining a family hearth. A woman should rely on a strong man.

Such a state should not be allowed, since it is fraught with very unforeseen consequences.
Muladhara is a source of Kundalini energy that has been gathered over many past lives. For the harmonious distribution of this energy across all the chakras, it is important to be cleansed of the negative coming from past incarnations and to harmonize one chakra.
