Chakra means wheel. A chakra looks like a glass ball or sphere spinning. Our body has many types of chakras: large, minute and minuscule. The chakras are doors that connect to the other bodies. When working properly they receive good energies and exhaust unbalanced energies.
The Root Chakra
The root chakra is also known as the muladhara.
Muladhara means “the root place.”
This chakra is considered the first of the major chakras. The root chakra, basic chakra, or the muladhara is located between the tail bone and the anus. This chakra is the harmonizer of the wants and the needs that we perceive in our lives. The muladhara is the resting place of “kundalini.” It is the beginning point of cosmic power in our bodies.
This is a typical rendering of the root chakra:
The root chakra has four petals that represent wants in our life. These wants, needs or longings are balanced and vibrated here. Each chakra is attached to an energy field. These energy fields have been described as “the Esoteric Fields.” When a clairvoyant or a person with clear sight sees a field, it is described as an aura. There are many auras, as each chakra is attached to one.The root chakra petals are often described as the color red. This, however, is not what I see when I look at the root chakra. The chakra spins with a slight elongation and wobble. There is a rainbow of colors in all of the chakras. The root chakra’s petals appear a brilliant copper color different than what I have read by others concerning this chakra. I have been sketching the chakras as I see them to help describe them to people so that they may have a better understanding of energy fields. Understanding this door to the body will make you a better healer. Knowing what you are looking for will allow your clear senses to grow.
