The first chakra is located at the base of the spine.
This chakra rules the lowest vibration of our body and has
the slowest wavelength. There are four spokes, or petals.
Four is the number of the square and foundations. The square
is related to being honest, or giving a "square deal, the
four energies of earth--earth, air, fire, and water, and the
four directions. Four walls, four legs, or four wheels
represent a strong foundation.
NOTE & MANTRA: The note
for this chakra is C and the mantra is "lam" or "e" as in
red. Chanting these mantras in the key of D while focusing
our attention on this area of our body can enable us to more
consciously access the first chakra.
COLOR: The color for this
chakra is red, which is the lowest frequency of human's
visible light spectrum. Red is the color of anger and/or
RULES: The first chakra
rules our PHYSICAL energies. Also known as the root chakra,
it governs our vigor, heredity, survival, security, passion,
money, job, and home. This chakra aids us in our everyday
SENSE: The sense of smell
is related to this chakra. Our sense of smell is our most
primitive sense, and is the first sense that awakens upon
our physical birth. The receptors for smell are located at
the base of our brain and feeds directly into our limbic
system, which is the area of memory and emotion. Therefore,
aromas can immediately access emotional memories stored in
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN: The
astrological sign associated with the root chakra is Taurus.
The symbol for Taurus is the bull. Like our root chakra, the
bull is a symbol of masculine power and fertility. The bull
roots in the earth with his front hooves and lowers his
nostrils toward the ground to warn any who would threaten
his "herd". There are many cows in the herd, but only the
strongest bull will be able to preserve the genetic
integrity of the group.
The first chakra is actually the basis of both our
masculine and feminine energy. It represents our masculine
will and male sexual organs as well as the feminine energy
of the Goddess Kundalini. Therefore, a man can learn to
integrate his feminine power and a woman can learn to
integrate her masculine power through the clearing and
opening of this chakra.
ELEMENT: Earth is the
element associated with the first chakra and the mineral
kingdom is the top of that hierarchy. Crystals have been
prized by humankind for eons and have also been used in
esoteric healing. Since it rules our first dimensional self
that is unable to reflect upon itself, perceptions from our
root chakra are usually unconscious. This first dimensional
portion of us can only be aware of a "hive or species
Even though, the first chakra has many masculine qualities
it is also the "seat of the Goddess Kundalini" and is
therefore often associated with our relationship with our
mothers and with Mother Earth. Our relationships with our
mother set up our attitude toward home, security, and money.
If we are cut off from our roots, we feel cut off from the
earth as well.
CONSCIOUSNESS: The first
chakra rules our survival consciousness and
our deepest unconscious and most primitive self. This chakra
represents the reptilian portion of our brain, which is our
brainstem, our center for life support. The brainstem and
the area immediately above it are called the reptilian brain
because it is possessed by all creatures from reptiles to
humans. For reptiles, this area is their entire brain, but
for humans it is the base, or stem, of their brain. In fact,
part of this area is known as the brainstem.
PERSONAL TIMELINE: The
first chakra represents birth to two years of age. This is
the time before we have completed our process of
individuation and still perceive ourselves as a part of our
parents. This chakra represents our struggle to come to
terms with our physical life and physical body. Our
Multidimensional Spirits are new to the limitations and
separation of our new 3D reality, and we struggling to learn
how to control our physical earth vessel. Fortunately, we
naturally travel into the higher dimensions at this age and
can return Home whenever we are desperately in need of
comfort and understanding.
Anthropologically, the first chakra represents the time when
humankind was cave dwellers. At that time in our
"civilization", we lived from day to day. To assist in our
struggle for survival, we worshiped animals and other
aspects of our physical environment.
GLAND: Each chakra feeds
prana into a different endocrine gland. Just as there are
seven chakras, there are seven endocrine glands. Both the
chakras and the endocrine glands are located along the
spinal cord. The endocrine glands manufacture hormones and
supply them to the bloodstream. These glands are called
"ductless" because there is not a duct to any specific part
of the body. Instead, hormones are released into the
bloodstream where they are carried by the blood to every
organ and tissue to exert their influence on all functions
of the physical body.
Each gland is internally related to the other glands and
also works closely with the nervous and circulatory system.
In order for the organs of the body to work efficiently, the
blood must contain certain chemicals. Many of these
chemicals are secreted by the endocrine glands, and this
secretion is vital for the health of the entire system. Our
bodies can become diseased if there are too many or too few
The endocrine gland for the first chakra is the adrenal
glands. There are actually two adrenal glands located with
one on top of each of the two kidneys. The adrenal glands
are the body's call to battle. When adrenaline is released
into the system our perceptions become clearer, we have
added vigor and feel more courageous.
The release of adrenaline activates the fight/flight
syndrome, which prepares us for “fight or flight.” Release
of adrenaline and activation of fight/flight is brought on
by real or imagined danger. Therefore, our emotions can
activate a release of adrenaline when we feel extreme fear
or even chronic anxiety. The first chakra is the "survival
chakra," and the fight/flight syndrome is vital for the
survival of every species.
PLEXUS: The first chakra
is located near the sacral plexus. The sacral plexus is the
nerve center, which rules the skeleton, legs, feet,
eliminatory system, male reproductive organs, and the
prostate. If there is a problem with the leg or foot on the
right, masculine, side of the body it can indicate issues of
trust in one's will. If there is a problem with the leg or
foot on the left, feminine, side then it can indicate issues
with trust of one's emotional life.
When the first chakra is clear we feel secure, grounded, and
stable. We can use good "common sense" to balance our
finances as well as our everyday responsibilities and still
initiate new activities and interest. Our eliminatory system
functions well, neural activity in our legs and feet is
healthy, and our ability to initiate sexual encounters is
comfortable and natural. Our root chakra is the home of the
Sleeping Serpent, our Kundalini. When this chakra is clear
and balanced the Goddess Kundalini Shakti can awaken and
begin her gradual rise towards reunion with Lord Shiva.
When the first chakra is unclear we feel insecure and
fearful. We can also become absent-minded because we are
ungrounded. We may also have a difficult time with our
finances and day to day necessities. Whatever security we
derive from material things can become threatened. There can
also be problems with our home, which is our base of
operations in physical life. We can become self-indulgent
and self-centered and suffer from depression and grief. We
may suffer from hemorrhoids, constipation, sciatica, or
All of the above emotional, behavioral, and physical health
issues have to do with the ability to let go. We cannot let
go of our sadness, let go of material sources of comfort
when finances require, or even let go of the waste material
of our bodies. If we cannot release what is holding us back,
we cannot move forward. Difficulties with our sciatic nerve
and problems with our legs and feet display this dynamic.
Prostate problems can arise from frustrated sexual or
EARTH'S CHAKRAS: Just as
the first chakra represents our physical body, the Earth's
first chakra represents Her physical body. The planetary
first chakra is located at Mt. Sinai in the Middle East.
Lady Gaia is allowing Her Kundalini to rise to meet her
Divine Mate. It is TIME now that we hear Her call. Hence,
this area of the planet is the center of great unrest.
DIMENSIONS: The first
chakra rules our first and second dimensional selves. Our
first dimensional self represents the genetic coding, cells,
and minerals of our bodies. It also represents our most
primitive "animal self", which is represented by the
fight/flight response that serves to assure the survival of
the species. The root chakra also rules the male sex glands
and the testosterone that they secrete. This testosterone
drives the males in our society, and the male polarity of
our psyche, to perpetuate and protect humanity.
SUMMARY: The body of
Mother Earth and Her consciousness, Lady Gaia, is the third
dimensional planet that supports our physical body. Just as
our physical body communicates with our consciousness by its
state of health, disease, comfort, and discomfort, Lady Gaia
communicates with us via the health of Her planet.
A VISIT TO THE
Our Western society has traveled so far into our third
dimensional individuality that we have lost sight of the
fact that we are members of a greater whole. We have
forgotten that we are members of a planet that we must all
share. This forgetfulness has allowed us to overlook the
fact that our individual destinies are intrinsically tied to
the destiny of Mother Earth who houses and feeds our
Our physical bodies and the body of Earth send messages to
us via the first and second dimension. If there are
disruptions and diseases on a genetic and cellular level, if
the elements of earth that are around and within our bodies
are disrupted, if plants and animals are becoming extinct on
a daily rate, there is a message that is being sent. We can
say that we have heard these messages, but if our behavior
has not been altered, then we have not LISTENED.
We can deny or ignore our bodies and the body of Earth upon
which we live, but it is difficult to deny or ignore our
behavior. Our actions interact with our environment and with
others to create a mirror that forces us to look at
ourselves. We can hold on to a victim mentality, which
allows us to stay in denial and lie to ourselves, but our
actions do not lie. In today's world, a lot of our needs for
survival are "getting what we want". We must learn to
recognize that our actions dictate to us what we truly want,
for that is what we find time to "do". Only when we can
recognize the messages from our unconscious as they are
displayed in our behavior, can we take full responsibility
for our actions.
However, how much time do we have to learn to listen to the
needs of our planet and Her future generations? Has our
individuality, which we so dearly prize in the West, cost us
our ability to see the bigger picture? When our first chakra
is closed, it is difficult for prana to infuse our physical
body. We are then out of touch with our own power to listen
to and respond to the needs of our body and the home of our
Our actions then become reactions, and our ability to take
responsibility for our personal power is diluted into a
dismal struggle for survival. However, when the first chakra
is awakened, spirit lives in matter and all of our behavior
is directed by spirit, the spirit within our physical bodies
and the spirit within our Earth.
The third and the fourth
dimension influence and react to each other. Events in the
third dimension affect the fourth dimension and, in turn,
events in the fourth dimension affect the third dimension.
There is a relationship between the two, which is usually
unconscious to our physical reality. Everything that has
ever happened in the third dimension remains in the fourth
like an echo.
This echo reverberates between the two dimensions creating
a perpetual motion machine that creates the same patterns of
reality over and over. If the pattern is filled with love,
it assists us in accepting our Soul into our physical form.
However, if the pattern is filled with fear, it holds us in
negative cycles that we repeat over and over. In order to
stop these cycles, the fear must be healed with love.
The Lower Astral Plane is the lowest vibration of the
fourth dimension, which holds the invisible emanations of
all the fear, and negativity that is projected into it from
the physical plane. The lower astral plane has been known as
Hell, but it is a Hell of our own creation for it is merely
the completion of actions that were initiated on the
The Lower Astral Plane is where all the fear, anger,
sorrows, and pain that we created and/or did not heal in our
physical life awaits us to be cleared on the next dimension.
The lower astral plan is like the cosmic dump. All the fear
that people have when they "die" to their third dimensional
world settles in the lowest vibration of the fourth
dimension. This fear then influences the third dimension.
For us to bring our Soul down into our physical body so
that it can transform our earth vessel into a Lightbody, we
must face the darkness that we have left in the Lower Astral
Plane and clear it with our LOVE. When we have done that, we
create a tunnel of light through the density of this Plane,
which allows us greater access to our Higher Selves.
Clearing our Lower Astral Body also assists us to release
our greatest enemy—SHAME.
