Through the first chakra, the energy of the Earth enters the human body and moves upward, passing through the other six chakras. This chakra is basic.

Muladhara, is associated with the main instincts and needs of a person: self-preservation, health, food, housing, physical existence, safety and reproduction of offspring. 

The main function of the Muladhara chakra is considered to be the preservation of life and the ability to survive in any conditions.

It preserves life and maintains the ability to survive in all circumstances and contains a self-defense mechanism.

Since the chakra is located below the rest, the condition of the legs, lower back (spine) and genitals, as well as the reproductive system, kidneys and adrenal glands, depends on its normal functioning.

Spiritual development of a person is an important aspect of the work of this chakra. The energy flowing through Muladhara moves upward. And accordingly, the more spiritually developed a person is, the more energy he needs.

If a person is at a low level of spiritual development, then a small amount of energy that he receives from the chakra is spent only on self-preservation and survival.
