The root chakra grounds the soul to the earth through the bones of the body. This mandala contains a four-sided square representing the four directions of East, South, West and North. Within the square is a downward V holding an awakening spiral. The V symbolizes the archetypal feminine energy of the womb of Mother Earth. The awakening spiral represents the Serpent of Light or Kundalini energy that rests at the base of the root chakra. Spending time in nature, among trees, walking along a beach or sitting on a large stone helps to release the heavy burdens of everyday life.

If you liked what you read and want more... you may be interested in having the actual guidebook and card deck. The 134 page full-color book is sold separately from the cards. My goal is to find a publisher who can offer this as a set. In the meantime, you can purchase either the book or cards via these links. Thank you for your support. Laural
