5 Kundalini Mantras to Ground your Root Chakra

Yoga’s popularity has risen over recent years as people become more aware of how everything is universally connected. The most basic, yet complex system of our yogic bodies involves our chakra system. “Chakras” have become the latest buzzword as more and more people are waking up to the spiritual revolution. With the literal Sanskrit translation being “energry centers,” we can discover years of trauma and dis-ease stored along our spine as we connect to our spiritual and physical selves. These blocks prevent us from allowing our creative force, known as our Kundalini Energy to rise up the spine. When we encounter these blocks, we find triggers that result in pent up feelings, limiting beliefs, and physical problems that we may have been ignoring for years.

Coming across these blocks gives us the opportunity to find the root of our pain and to release and transmute that energy once and for all. This gifts us with the lessons we came to learn which results in newer levels of enlightenment, intuition, and drive unlike ever before. We find ourselves more alive, more real, and more authentic than when we were stuck. While the road is never easy, <wo>man is it worth it!

I’m here to tell you that you no longer need to be stuck in the chains. You have permission to live your best life forward. In order to do that, you must be willing to release what no longer serves once and for all. As you embark on this journey, I want you to know that I am here for you and I am here to serve you and support you. There may be many things coming up for you, but I want you to know… all of it is perfect. What you are experiencing is exactly where you are supposed to be on your journey.


The Root Chakra helps relates to security and safety. Translated in Sanskrit as Muladara, this chakra develops around ages 0-7 years. Associated with the Earth, the name of this chakra coincides with its literal purpose as it brings us to our foundation and back to basics. Here, we find our habits and our self-acceptance. We consistently hear talk in the modern spiritual world to “raise the vibration. raise the vibration!” Raising the vibration is great, but if we aren’t grounded, there is no way we can withstand the storm that may be coming through. As part of the lower triangle we see in the seven chakras, we must allow ourselves to be grounded in our physical body before we even tackle our spiritual body.

In my own journey, I discovered trauma that needed to be resolved from my early childhood. When I was at my rock bottom, I had no idea or relationship with my foundation in any facet of my life. More than anything, I was praying for a miracle. I wanted to have a spiritual relationship with my soul. I lost track of that after years of struggling with prolonged depression. I walked around numb. It was time for me to root myself in my truth and to be able to stand strong with conviction.

The Power of the Root Chakra

The power of the Root Chakra grounds us into our being. As we go forth in the world, we must find ourselves grounded during all the shifts and changes we face. This is our space where we find ourselves connected to all that surrounds us. When we find ourselves with a solid and strong foundation, we are able to confidently move forward in the direction of our dreams. We are here to find stability and safety in our being so that we can show the world just what we’re made of.

The root represents the masculine energy’s exit point, whereas the throat represents the feminine aspect. As you embark, you must be willing to feel whatever is coming up. Those who come from an abusive past do everything in their power to run away from facing the truth. I’m here to tell you, that the only way you will heal fully is if you dive in fully. Not being fully committed to the process may lead to you dealing with this issue down the line. You have the strength to go through it once and for all. As you heal your wounds, you help heal the world you see around you.

THIS is what it takes to make the world a better place.

You allowing yourself to be vulnerable during this time gives permission for others to not only go in and heal, but it also reminds others that they aren’t alone in this journey. We are all in this together. Working with these mantras will help you thrive and conquer as you go out into the world to be of service as the best version of you. Everything you want is within you. Allow the power of the mantra to guide you as you go forth from this moment on.

    Love this post <3 Just what I needed to read today as I’m working on my Root this week 🙂
    Thank you!

  2. […] The Kundalini Yoga tradition also recommends specific mantras for strengthening different aspects of our lives, which are associated with the root chakra. One that’s recommended by Yogi Bhajan (who popularized Kundalini Yoga) is a traditional Sikh prayer called the Mul Mantra. You may have gathered that this translates to “root mantra.” According to Yogi Bhajan, “The Mul Mantra is a fate killer. It removes the fate and changes the destiny to complete prosperity.” […]

    Thank you for all the helpful information. I’m sure I’m not the first to ask so I apologize if I have overlooked a FAQ section and this is a question that has grown tedious or yawn inducing for yourself to a
    respond to but where did you find these symbols for the chakras? I love the the style and the added background cour combos. I get the relation and or use of the alchemic symbol for earth being used in the root or the merkaba in Crown but are these symbols that I have just overlooked all these years or are these.your own designs? I have my grandfather’s old “chart of the mysterious Kundalini Location of the Glands” mounted poster and actually searching for an online source of those those symbols is how I came across this site, browsing google images. I take it as ones own attempt to create a design for a western kundalini relation, possibly because the traditional ones may be difficult for a western audience to relate to, understand, or maybe someone might have felt like an appropriation? Regardless, like I mentioned above- totally dig them and am definitely re-inspired to get back to working on some of my designs. I’ve been working on sacred geometry and other spiritual symbols designs for my friends and others that are becoming more spiritual and or experiencing awakenings that come from the Punk rock community. Something a little more like cheetah print yoga mats or Buddha in the pit lol
    Anyway have a great day,

    ⛦☤🖤 ✡🍄

      All these symbols my graphic designer and I came up with, so they are trademarked, but I love them! I’m curious to see how these have inspired your upgraded designs! 🙃

  4. Mbulelo More says:

    How many times should a mantra be chanted?

    • Sabrina Riccio says:

      It all depends on the meditation you’re doing that shares to use this mantra! If you’re not doing it with a specific meditation, I always suggest either 3 or 11 minutes since those are the average times I find myself chanting them. 🙂
