Root Chakra is located for an individual at the base of the spine and
is represented by a downward pointing Vortex that connects to the Earth Star
Chakra through the secondary Chakras in the soles of the feet. The Root Chakra
roots our energies into physical existence and is the primary source of usable
physical energy. It represents birthplace, cultural, and past life influences.
It provides the foundation of all aspects of being and is the seat of self-mastery.
The issues of this Chakra are of safety, security, and abundance. It is responsible
for our physical senses of touch and smell and the psychic ability of clairsentience.
It resonates to the Coherent Light Ray of the color red. It is ruled by the
element of Earth. The Old Age Archetype of this Chakra highlighted the victimization
of physical incarnation. The Kundalini energy or vital life force energy was
seen to lie dormant at the base of the spine in most humans and consequently
the lower Chakras were viewed as stagnant and upper Chakras closed to the Life
Force and expanded awareness. Earth incarnation was an existence of isolation
from the Divine and was an experience of suffering, loss, decay, and death.
The vital force of the Feminine energy and all She represents including the
Earth was greeted with mistrust and fear. These energies were used and exploited.
The New Light and New Time Archetype of this Chakra highlights Feminine energy
and the expanded awareness of the intuitive and regards the Earth as the Great
Mother, a place of abundance and transforming Light. The New Light and the New
Time Archetype recognizes that the Life Force is active in all Chakras and is
no longer stagnant. Abundance, vitality, and connection to all Consciousness
replace the Old Age energies. Both the Ecological Movement and the concept of
the Earth as a Global Village reflect the New Archetype. The field of influence
that is assisting in the transmutation of the Root Chakra for Earth and Her
Life forms from 1999 to 2011 is the Planetary surface, the Earths Crust.
