Without strong roots we cannot ascend to the heavens.
"All foundations rest upon the earth - the universal ground for all that we do. To connect with the body is to connect with the earth, to be grounded in the biological reality of existence. Our bodies are the home of our spirit. Situated at the base of our spine, the first chakra is the foundation for the body - the anchor for the rainbow bridge. Without a strong, rooted foundation, little else can be accomplished. We must have soil firm enough to provide stability, yet yielding enough to be penetrated by the roots. The anchoring of this temple digs deep into the earth, for its Sanskrit name, muladhara, means "root support."
"This chakra roots us into our bodies, the physical world, and the earth. A plant cannot survive without roots, and neither can the psyche of a human being. Our roots represent where we come from: the earth, womb, our ancestors and family, and our personal history. We cannot simultaneously deny our past and maintain our roots."
