Muladhara Chakra (Mula = root, adhara = support)
The root chakra is the lowest chakra and is located at the level of the coccyx. It is open at the bottom and connects us energetically to the earth. It is our root, accordingly called root chakra.

If the root chakra is blocked, it lacks drive power. In the morning you can hardly get out of bed, during the day everything is tiring and in the evening it goes back to bed early. Since the energy does not flow, the entire body is energetically underserved. On the psychic level, this leads to an undifferentiated, contourless personality that is quick to impress and has little to offer. These symptoms disappear when the root chakra is (re) vitalized and the raw earth energy can flow unimpeded into the entire energy balance.
