The root chakra emanates from the perineum. As with all chakras, it takes the shape of a funnel with the small end closest to the body.

The root chakra grounds us and also lays the foundation for our spiritual journey. It connects us to the physical world and all that it contains - nature, energy, gravity. It is the entry point for certain vibrations of bioavailable or Earth energy. Similar to a seedling which draws energy from the soil, our root chakra is the place where we may draw energy from the core of source energy and make use of it for our own growth. A strong connection to the physical world enables us to accept it for what it is, neither worrying about nor struggling with it.

When the root chakra is balanced, we can live comfortably in the world and allow our spiritual nature to flow freely. We welcome money and things into and out of life, in appropriate amounts. A strong root chakra empowers us to merge the material and spiritual world. It enables us expand our vibration in order to lovingly embrace the world. When we understand the true meaning of our root chakra, we understand that material "things" are an extension and expression of our spirituality. They are how we communicate with others who are on a different frequency.

Similarly, our ability to accept and utilize vibration of a particular frequency depends on a strong body and root chakra. Just as a 120 volt appliance will burn out when plugged into a 220 outlet, we cannot accept a higher vibration than that for which our body is prepared.

Your root chakra may be out of balance if you often think or worry about:

* whether you have enough to meet your (families') needs
* detaching from the material world
* acquiring a particular item or having the latest/greatest _____________
* too busy during the day to have a private moment or to breathe real air
* remembering the past or reliving past experiences
* dreaming about the future and how much better life will be

Balancing the root chakra is a fairly simple process. All energy work is about re-patterning the energy. It make take a few sessions for the body to hold the new pattern.

At the end of each session I provide guidance for how to work with your own energy in order to strengthen and promote the work we've done together.
