"Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.
                                                                                            - Theodore Roosevelt

Survival. Safety. Grounding. This is what the root chakra is all about - helping us create a solid foundation we can build our lives upon and a home base we can come back to when we feel we have lost our way or fell out of connection with ourselves. Let's begin our journey of the chakra system and explore the root chakra. 

What is the root chakra?

The root chakra, or Muladhara in Sanskrit, acts as our primal center governing our basic survival instincts, security, safety, grounding in the physical plane and physical needs and energy. This chakra forms our foundation upon which all the other chakras in the body securely rest upon and connects us to Mother Earth. Within the root chakra is where the sleeping kundalini energy resides before it is awakened.

The Muladhara represents your place in the world - it is where you make things happen, you discover who you truly are and where you take responsibility for yourself. It supports courage, strength, determination, will, sexual energy, vitality and prosperity. The primary belief of the root chakra is the belief that you are worthy of existing.

Big News! 

I am excited to announce I am starting a blog called "Returning to Wholeness" where I will be sharing my healing journey in hopes that my experiences will resonate with others and help them to feel validated and that they aren’t alone because I am right here finding my way with all of you. 

I chose this title for my blog because I believe through all of our experiences and personal growth we are coming home to ourselves and returning to wholeness where we reclaim the parts of us we have lost, forgotten or repressed for far too long. Like a puzzle, we are rediscovering the missing puzzle pieces of our soul to bring back into the whole picture of our being. 

You will receive e-mail updates when I add new blog posts so you don't miss out!
I hope you enjoyed learning about the root chakra and how vital of a part it plays in our health and wellbeing.

I will soon be sharing a 7 chakra balancing experience ~ stay tuned for more information in future issues!

It is truly an honor to be a part of your healing journey and support you in any way I can. Come home to yourself and ignite your inner light and joy ~ your
soul is rooting for you and so am I. 
Keep shining your light! 

With love and gratitude,
