Great info on the root chakra, which has been bothering me lately.

The Seven Minds

Yoga tradition teaches that we have two bodies. We have a physical and tangible body, and an energetic and subtle body. Along the midline of the subtle body – within the spine – lie seven subtle energy centres, the chakras. There are seven main chakras. The first chakra is the root chakra.

1. Root chakra (Muladhara)
Muladhara is symbolized by a lotus with four petals and the color red.

The memory center, muladhara, located at the base of the spine, creates a consciousness of time through the powers of memory. Whenever we go back in our memory patterns, we are using the forces of the muladhara. It has four petals or aspects, one of which governs memories of past lives. The other three contain the compiled memory patterns and interrelated karmas of this life.
