This bracelet helps to balance the Root Chakra, Muladhara, corresponding with our survival instincts: the need for shelter, food, water, and financial security. When these needs are not met, the adrenal glands become stimulated, causing the release of adrenaline and cortisol. This causes stress and anxiety. Under-stimulation causes depression. Balance Muladhara Chakra in order to achieve a sense of security and contentment in order to rise through the chakras to a state of higher consciousness.
