Roots chakra’s energy connect right to the earth’s energy. This chakra’s role is to connect all of your physical, bodily energy with the Earth itself. In other words, this chakra ‘grounds’ you.

Your Root Chakra is also linked to everything you need to survive. This includes the act of breathing, eating, sleeping, and experiencing physical security. When your 1st chakra is balanced, you’ll feel a deep sense of peace. You’ll feel safe in the knowledge that all of your core needs are met. Because of this, all total body healing starts here.

“It is said that the life-force energy of kundalini lies coiled as a serpent goddess. At the base of spine, wrapped 3 & a half times around the root chakra”. As you awaken the root chakra the kundalini energy rises up to unite with shiva energy 7 transfers energy to each chakra on its way up to crown chakra.
