represents security, survival, trust, the relationship with
money, home, job. The ability to be grounded, to be present in
the here and now. The ability to allow one's self to be

The Root Chakra channels the earth's
energy up to our higher chakra centers and helps to ground us on
the physical plane. The more we ground ourselves the greater
chance we have of making our dreams real and developing into the
people we would like to become. When we lose our connection to
the earth, we cut ourselves off from the healing source of

personality so that we can develop our capacity to love - love
ourselves, love all people, love life. As we develop the Mother
within ourselves, we stop projecting our needs onto the world
around us so that we are able to look after ourselves.
