Deities Linked With The Base Chakra


Statue of Brahma

Brahma is the lord of creation & is shown as having four heads, this symbolises that he is all knowing & can see in four directions at the same time.; his heads also show the four forms of human consciousness; the emotional self, the physical self, the rational self & the intuitive self. He is also shown having four arms; in his upper left hand he holds a lotus flower, a Hindu symbol of purity, lower left hand, the sacred Hindu scriptures, lower right hand, a vase with the nectar of life – amrita in it, upper right hand is raised in the hand gesture – mudra of granting fearlessness.

Brahma is shown as a child, this reflects the relative immaturity of the consciousness at this level.

Mediating on Brahma helps develop peacefulness & stillness.


Statue Of Dakini

Dakini is Brahma’s wife & combines the forces of the Creator, the Destroyer & the Preserver, she represents the revelation of Divine knowledge & amrita.

She is sometimes shown riding a fierce lion, this shows the lower human nature, she also holds several symbolic items.

In her lower left hand she holds a trident, this shows her destructive energies, upper left hand, a skull, which shows detachment from the fear of death, which is said to be a common psychological block in the base chakra, upper right hand she holds a sword which represents the power to overcome difficulties & fear, lower left hand she holds a shield for protection against that could take you away from your spiritual path.

Crystals To Calm The Base Chakra

Small uncut pieces of raw emerald or blue sapphire are recommended to calm your base chakra.

To get clarity about spiritual matters use a blue sapphire to create a connection between your ancestral roots & cosmic & spiritual origins.


Raw Emerald

Emerald can be used to calm your base chakra & can give you a deeper connection to Mother Earth, it helps to ground you so you feel more at peace with your life on Earth.

It is important to be grounded through your base chakra, otherwise your other chakras won’t be fully aligned with you soul purpose.

Your base chakra is where kundalini energy ‘sleeps’ curled up,n if your base chakra & kundalini are out of balance, you are more likely to give in to your most basic sexual actions.

People who show great anger, whether it’s sexual, or not will have an unbalanced base chakra & no amount of treatment will cure it until it has been balanced.

When anger is stuck at your base chakra it blocks the energetic Earth connection completely & you won’t be able to experience the beauty of kundalini rising through your chakra system.

A piece of emerald or blue sapphire jewellery will work just as well as a raw piece.

Crystals To Balance The Base Chakra

You can get a set of chakra crystals – they are seven tumbles the same colours as your chakras: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo & violet

Tumbles are just as effective as raw pieces & they are sometimes cheaper too.

It is better to balance your chakras one at a time, rather than all at the same time, so you can balance each chakra properly.


Red Carnelian Crystal

A small carnelian tumbles perfect for balancing your base chakra; you can tape a flat tumble to a painful area to ease the pain, make sure to cleanse & charge the tumble after you have used it.

Black tourmaline can be used as well.

Raw Black Tourmaline

Base Chakra Imbalances

Disorders that can affect your bottom, sexual organs & spine are all connected to any imbalances of your base chakra.

To treat this in a holistic way, you would need to look for the underlying cause, rather than just treating the symptoms.

Holistic therapies – such as crystal healing, make a body/mind connection with the subtle energy of the chakras.

Chronic constipation can be referred to as abase/root dysfunction, that could be caused by unnecessarily holding on to old resentments & thoughts.

Diarrhea could also be a base/root dysfunction, but it could reflect a habit of getting rid of things too quickly, rejecting new idea because of fear of failure.

Kundalini energy is curled up at the base of the chakra, like a sleeping snake.

The serpent is another way of describing the strong, pranic type life force that represents the surge of sexual energy that can rise unchecked trough your spine & chakras.

Spontaneous & sudden awakening of Kundalini can cause pain, heat & other unpleasant feelings, so esoteric practices like yoga will encourage slow movement of this powerful energy up through your chakras.

Your body needs Kundaliniconstantly, to restore the natural cycles of growth & decay; if it is limited,every part of your body will be compromised & you will sense a loss of life force.

Balancing your chakras can help this process.

When people are unable to accept their own sexuality, base chakra flow is held back & it can end up by showing as diseases of the sexual organs.

If your base chakra is disconnected from the earth, you can’t get rid of the waste emotions.

Base Chakra Continued

Security & Stability

Confidence in who you are & who you trust are functions of your base chakra.

If your early life felt protected & safe, then trust is normally well established; but if there were any negative influences during your childhood, then the stresses can show in your base chakra, creating a negative feeling towards other people & the world.

When the energy from the base chakra is flowing freely, it can be described as a red lotus flower with an intense golden centre.

Golden Centred Lotus Flower

The lotus flower starts life in muddy water at the bottom of a lake or river, & grows upwards to flower in the light.

It symbolises human growth & potential from the start, to mastering the emotions, to blossoming in the light of the spirit.

Kundalini Energy

Blood red, gold & yellow are the colours traditionally linked to the base chakra when Tantric yoga is taught.

Despite being the first & lowest of the seven major chakras, it’s the bliss centre of your physical body; you experience blissfulness, joy, passion & pleasure in large amounts, this centre will lead you to the bliss of realising the Divine in your physical body through sexuality.

The highest form of spirituality in the majority of cultures don’t reject the body, they see it as a medium to join body & spirit.

Body Electrics

Your body is ‘wired’ for bliss & there is a subtle energy grid of channels & meridians of energy called nadis already in place.

The grid sometimes gets blocked & the energy flow is reduced, meditation & yoga purify the grids energy lines so the radiant light flows as it should.

Kundalini is the feminine power of the eternal Goddess Shakti, who wants to join with her Lord Shiva at your crown chakra.

Kundalini Energy & The Nadis

Kundalini energy can be aroused by using a combination of Hatha yoga postures, body locks – bandhas, correct breathingpranayama, hand gestures – mudras, chanting mantras, meditation & visualisation techniques.

Hatha Yoga Poses

Your dormant kundalini works with your nervous system to gain a completely new level of consciousness.

There are said to be fourteen major nadis, & the three most important are the ida, pingala & sushumna; all three meet at your base chakra.

From the base chakra, the subtle energy rises from ida & pingala, alternating at each chakra; if kundalini flows through sushumna to its destination, soul realisation is consciously achieved.

The Granthis

It is said the knots – granthis are energy blocks or psychic hurdles that must be crossed to raise more energy in the sushumna nadi.

They can block the path of kundalini as it rises to the higher centres.

It is thought the Western culture suffers from kundalini dysfunction that keeps you at first or second chakra level, this blockage can stop you from feeling in touch with your entire body, or sensing your spiritual potential.

Everyone needs kundalini in order to survive in their physical body, when you have an ecstatic raising of kundalini, the increased energy & higher vibrational quality will allow you to actually feel its power.

Brahma Granthi

This is called the perineal knot & is the first knot that needs to be untied & is in your base chakra.

It is called the knot of forms & names, the world of ambitions & desires & is known as Brahma’s knot, this is because the God Brahma is the creator of the sensory world.

By being stuck in the world of physicality, senses & sexuality & a restless focus on earthly attachments, you become unable to consciously raise your kundalini past this point.

Vishnu Granthi

The Vishnu granthi is named after the God Vishnu, the lord of preservation & is in your heart chakra; it gives you the desire to preserve ancient knowledge, spiritual orders, institutions & traditions, the attachment is made stronger by the compassion that characterises the heart chakra.

Rudra Granthi

This knot is in your brow chakra & when awakened kundalini reaches this point & the power to see past, present & future as the all knowing nature of consciousness can be achieved.



The First Chakra – Base/Root

Base/Root Chakra

Muladhara is the Sanskrit word for the base/root chakra.

Your base/root chakra is the foundation of life.

It is located at the very bottom of your spine.

It’s the chakra that initiates life through procreation & represents the will to live.

Your base chakra draws earth energy upwards trough your feet to process & stabilise it.

It channels the energy up your spine in a form your body can handle: as endocrine signals that balance the release of hormones.

We, as humans often fail to get the full flow of the earths energy, we become out of touch with nature, because we live in big cities, always walking on the pavement with our feet wrapped in socks & shoes that are made from artificial materials; instead of growing our own food, we go to the supermarket, this way of living could result in your feeling tired all the time.

Despite the built up areas & pollution a few large trees always seem to survive, how?

Because they have developed a strong root structure to feed them, the root system is as big as the branches are wide above ground.

Tree root system

Your roots are energy connections, & they need to be strong.

Awareness of your base chakra will improve your creativity & vitality.

Because red light is the lowest frequency energy of visible light, it stimulates your base/root chakra.

Your base chakra is responsible for keeping you grounded/rooted.

When you’re grounded, you are at one with life & your base chakra works as it’s supposed to.

Your base chakra is closely linked to returning karma – karma is the Sanskrit word for action; what goes around, comes around.

It is said there is good & bad karma, but all karma is there to learn from.

Your base & sacral chakras act as the energetic recycling bin of your auric field.

They change negative emotional energy into light & power & return any toxic waste your other chakras can’t deal with – keeping the rainbow purity of your aura.

The Base Chakra & Emotional, Mental & Spiritual Issues

Because the base chakra is between your legs, the actual point of body contact is the sacral-coccyx joint, which is linked with the position of your body in time & space, how you move & the sense of touch.

A spin off of fulfilling sex is the flow of beneficial hormones that you need to strengthen you & keep you young.

Changing Your Emotions

During puberty & menopause your emotions can go from one extreme to another, the good news is, you can change these emotions by moving the energy upwards through your chakras, concentrating on a vibrant & wholesome body & a fulfilling spiritual life

It’s important for women who are gong through the menopause to complete the upward movement of energy, otherwise it could show as problems with the breasts & womb.



The Chakra Rainbow

I will go into detail of each chakra, giving you a practical basis for you to continue your research into your chakras.

Despite the fact you can’t see your chakras, their effects are very deep.

If you see things when you meditate you will become more aware of your chakra energy.

You will be able sense which chakra needs to be worked on, you will also be able to sense why you feel the way you do.

Chakra Growth & Nourishment

Your body needs four basic sources of nourishmentair to breathe, electrical/fire energy, including energy that passes along the nerves of your physical body, food for growth, prana & water for metabolism; prana flows through your chakras & aura.

The colours in your aura reflect the spiritual life changes, as you grow from a child to an adult.

In the first seven years of your life, auric colours are developing in intensity.

As a child grows, the colours of light passing through their chakras should stay balanced.

Chakra energy can be blocked or depleted by a lack of nourishment or other problems.

When the seventh seven year cycle is completed, about age forty nine a transition starts from the need to have a strongly active sex life.

You may find that you need materialistic possessions less, as an incoming of cosmic energy starts a life changing process through the higher chakras above the heart.

As this happens, a lightening & refinement of colours can be seen in your aura, showing that faster vibrations of light are passing through your chakras.

This feeds your chakras, helping your full potential shows itself.

The Lotus Blossom

The chakras are traditionally shown as lotus blossoms
There are a few similarities between a human & a lotus flower: It has roots that are in muddy water – human failings, it sends a long shoot through the water as it grows – your emotions, until the bud reaches the surface & opens to the sun, showing a beautiful golden heart – your potential.

Chakras can be described as open or closed flowers positioned along your spine – Sushumna nadi.

From base to crown each chakra is related to a number of petals on the lotus blossom.

Each set of petals are the colour of that particular chakra & represents the flow of prana through the nadis & the degree of spiritual practice needed to balance the chakra.



Chakras in other cultures

Chakra teaching were developed within the Indian yogic system, making it easier to be able to understand the idea of subtle energy in every day life.

Many other countries around the world that refer to the chakras.


Zarathushtrianism is one of the world’s oldest continuously practised religions, which is still used in India.

It was called Zoroastrianism when it was the national religion of Iran.

Zarathustrian priest doctors say there are sixteen main chakras within your aura, which are connected to your bran & organs.

The chakras are fed with cosmic energy from the twenty seven visible constellations of stars.

Light force – Athre comes from the stars & goes through the forcefield of the solar system, past the outer planets to Jupiter, where it’s sent to the inner forcefield of the sun, Mars, Venus & Mercury, then to earth & your chakras.

The Maya of Central America

The Maya call the chakras the great powers, a chakra is often seen on their human shaped carvings, shown as an ‘O’ with another circle inside, this is called ol; it means knowledge & consciousness.

The heart chakra is often marked with a ‘G’, or spiral, which represents the Milky Way, or ‘egg essence’, where we originate & where we return after death.

It is thought that the Naga Maya brought their culture to India in 2700 BCE, from there Mayan teachings spread to other parts of Asia & Africa.

The Maya say that our bodies are sacred temples that combine the seven great powers of light through the chakras in the form of a winding serpent.

Some Indian & Mayan words are similar: chakra – Indian, chacla – Mayan, kundalini – Indian & kultanlilni – Mayan.

The Tibetans

Tibetan mystical Buddhists call the aura ‘the rainbow of liberated energy’ & give five colours to the chakra elements of earth, air, fire, water & spirit – although they use the Eastern idea of the elements in their acupuncture systems & calendars.

Western Myth & Legend

Medieval paintings & writing show the dragon as a metaphor for sexual energy that needed to be controlled – i.e. the story of St. George, who pinned a dragon to the ground with his sword.

The fearsome dragon described the powerful sexual drive of the first chakra & the sword was a sword of light, the channel of energy that sexuality could be converted.

It is said that in Arthurian myths, stories about the Knights of the Round Table & their quest for the Holy Grail include deeply hidden esoteric teachings about the chakras.

The knights go on many adventures that stimulate the lower chakras, as the story moves towards the Grail cup/chalice. The Grail cup/chalice was a symbol of the heart chakra.

The story is based on asking a question in order to be shown the purity of the Grail mass.

When a knight asked the right question, the flow of energy at his throat chakra is unlocked.

An inner vision is activated in the brow/third eye chakra, as a result, that gives every person who sees the Grail mass, a different insight, providing him with the spiritual food that he needs.

The food comes from above, through the crown chakra & fills the chalice of his heart.

The story shows the search for a mystical union with God.



Chakra Protection Exercise

Whenever you do energy work you can finish by doing the following suggestion’

If you have been meditating on your own, imagine your chakra energy as the petals of a flower.

When you have finished meditating, visualise the petals of each chakra closing one by one, until the flower is completely closed & at rest.

If you are doing healing work with a friend, prepare each chakra for normal energy flows by visualising yourself drawing a circle of light around it, then seal it with a cross, pentagram or another positive symbol of your own spiritual practice.

The influence of life cycles

The Influence Of Life Cycles

The Sacred Seven

Seven year life cycles are described in various schools of spiritual development.

An Austrian artist, mystic & seer, Rudolf Steiner, who founded Anthroposophy – inspired study of spiritual essence of human & the cosmos, believed that understanding the seven year cycles of human growth was fundamental to our development.

Yogic teaching links the seven sacred chakras to seven year periods, starting at birth in the base/root chakra & working upwards through each of your chakras.

You will begin another seven year cycle on your fiftieth birthday, starting at your base/root chakra at a higher vibration of energy & a higher learning experience.

Each year within the seven year period is affected by the next chakra.

For example: as you reach your fourth birthday the overall influence comes from your base chakra, with annual influence from the colour green.

This is a time in a child’s development when loving security is vital in order to be able to begin loving relationships.

By the time a child is in their fifth year, loving security enables greater expression & vocalisation of loving care to others.

A person coming up to their fortieth birthday will be under the influence of the sixth chakra – brow & the colour turquoise.

The fortieth year should be a time of inner personal tuition, moving energy from concerns of the physical body to the development of higher chakra energy of the fifth – throat, through intuitive communication with others.

Below are a couple of lists you can use to work out what chakra & colour will influence your spiritual development.

Dowsing Rods

A way of finding water using a hazel twig is called dowsing.

Subtle energies can be sensed by using two L shaped metal rods.

You can do this by bending a couple of pieces of wire that are eighteen inches long, a metal coathanger is perfect.

If you hold a rod in each hand, pointing forward you can find the energy fields of animal, humans & plants.

Ask a specific question i.e. show me the edge of the cat/dogs aura & the rods will immediately move outward as the edge of the cat/dogs aura is reached, you can ask where your chakras are.

A lot of people make rods from a bent piece of meta about eighteen inches long – an old metal coathanger would be ideal.

You can find the energy fields of animals, humans & plants, by holding a rod in each hand.

Make sure you ask a specific question such as: “show me the edge of the dogs aura” – the rods will spontaneously move outward as the edge of the dogs aura is reached.

As you ask the rods a question, hold them pointing forward.

Protecting Your Chakras

Some people can take energy from you, they are sometimes called energy vampires.

They crave more energy for themselves & the only way they know how to get it is to ‘steal it’.

If you’re going into a difficult situation with another person or group, you can quickly protect your chakras by mentally wrapping a cloak of light around you.

Start above your head & draw it around you in an egg shape & finish at your feet.

Nobody will know what you are doing, but you will feel a lot better.

Energy Exercise

Ask a friend to help you with this.

Sit opposite them, hold the palms of your hands up to theirs without touching.

You may feel tingling or a warm sensation..

Next, both of you shut your eyes, one of you becomes the giver & one the receiver of energy.

What do you feel? Does it feel different if you’re giving or receiving energy?

You might sense the energy from your partner’s hands pushing or pulling you.

You may be really sensitive & you can pick up the emotional state of your friend, or you might not feel anything the first time you try.

Practise with other friends so you experience different kinds of energy.

Always wash your hands in cold water when you’ve finished, so you don’t hold on to somebody elses energy.



How To Sense Your Subtle Energies

To be able to see your subtle energies, you need to be relaxed, below are a few ideas you can try to prepare yourself, use them as often as you want to.


Switch off your mobile phone & anything else that could distract you.

Have a bath/shower – this will clean & tighten your auric field.

Sit quietly & practice pranic breathing.

Your goal is to slow down your brain function to a state of quiet calm – the state you can achieve is similar to deep relaxation & prepares you for mediation.


Say you want to see your aura for positive reasons, if you treat this as a party game, it won’t work.

If you are mediating, using yoga, or other spiritual traditions, your ability to see energy will improve, the more you practice.

Seeing Your Aura

Stand in front of a dark background in a candlelit room, with a mirror in front of you.

Look past your image with a soft gaze & you may start to see your energy field.

You may want to ask a friend to stand in front of the dark background & look past them with a soft gaze.

Don’t panic if you don’t succeed straight away, it won’t happen instantly, if you panic, your brainwaves will go back to normal activity levels & you will have to start again.

Once you have learned to see an aura like this, you might start seeing colours moving around or the spiral flow of your chakras.

Sensing Your Chakras

Ask a friend to help you to learn to sense their chakras & over time you will be able to sense your own chakras in the same way.

Ask your friend to lay down & use the palms of your hands to scan your friends body without touching it.

Keep your hands about five inches away from your friends body.

You may start to feel, not see different types of energies – they might be active, inactive or hot & cold.

Don’t talk while doing this as you won’t be able to sense any energy flow.

Shake you hands when you have finished to get rid of any unwanted energy, then swap places with your friend & ask them to sense your chakras.



Types Of Yoga

Usually, the following types of yoga are used to bring each chakra into alignment.

Hatha & Kundalini yoga for your first chakra (Muladhara)

Bhakti for your second chakra (Svadisthana)

Tantra yoga for your third chakra (Manipura)

Karma yoga for your fourth chakra (Anahata)

Mantra yoga for your fifth chakra (Vishudda)

Jnana & Yantra yoga for your sixth chakra (Ajna)

The practice of all the different types of yoga just mentioned stimulate your seventh chakra (Sahasrara) & transcendental consciousness happens immediately.

Whichever type of yoga you practice, your chakras must be activated upwards, from your feet to your head.

This guarantees that your personal growth is grounded (with the element of earth) & balanced first at your base chakra.

Kundalini – The Serpent Of Fire

At your base chakra is the coiled serpent of Kundalini – the sexual urge & your primary means of sensing life.

In the East, Tantric practices have been developed to move sexual energy from your base to your higher chakras.

Yoga moves the Serpent Fire slowly through your chakras.

It increases your connection to nature & improves your sex drive in your first chakra.

It improves your understanding of others in your second chakra.

It improves your digestion in your third chakra.

It improves your heart function & the ability to feel love in your fourth chakra.

It helps you to express yourself in your fifth chakra.

It improves creativity in your sixth chakra.

It improves your ability to sleep & experience altered states of consciousness in your seventh chakra.

The final stage is a blissful spiritual experience.

Keeping Your Chakras Healthy

Your chakras & aura carry a blueprint of information from the cosmos.

They are like a mould or pattern that life pours itself into.

If you are exposed to pollution or infections, your chakras struggle to remain healthy.

You can help yourself a lot by doing chakra visualisation exercises & thinking positively.

If you waste your energy worrying about things you can’t control your stress levels will rise & your body will complain by giving you signs of illness, such as, lack of energy, tiredness, not being able to eat certain foods & mood swings, bags under your eyes, depression or irritability.

These can be early signs that subtle pranic energies entering through your chakras can’t keep up with the speed of your lifestyle.

As a result, you may experience cravings for alcohol, chocolate, cigarettes, processed foods, sweets, fingernails that break easily, food allergies, hair in poor condition, muscle cramps & yeast infection (candida).

The more you worry about things, it is possible you may become ill on a regular basis; it is at this point you need to supplement traditional medicine with energy medicine.

Energy Medicine

Energy medicine is an all inclusive term used to describe the complementary practice & therapies that move & increase energy to improve the health of your body.

Complementary therapies are usually holistic – they treat the whole person & have a positive effect on your aura & chakras.

Programming Crystals

When you programme a crystal, whether it’s a tumblestone (tumbles/shinies), a raw piece, a piece of jewellery, or any other crystal item you are using, you are telling it what to do.

Before you programme anything, I suggest you find somewhere quiet, like your bedroom, shut the door & turn off your mobile, so you won’t be disturbed.

Sit quietly, relax & clear you mind for a few minutes before you begin, this will help you focus when you start programming your crystals.

If you choose a blue crystal to programme for healing, but it doesn’t ‘feel’ right, go with your intuition, there is no right or wrong crystal to use.

I was making a healing grid & all the crystals except one were green & when I tried to change a few of them for blue crystals, they kept rolling off the grid, so I left the green crystals where they were.

I have two sets of six tumbles I use to relieve the symptoms of MS & epilepsy; I have one set on me, while the other one is cleansing & charging, the sets are made up of one of each the following crystals, a kambaba jasper, a blue chalcedony, a red tigers eye, a citrine, a malachite & a clear quartz.

MS/epilepsy relief tumbles

When I need a fresh set of tumbles I use the set that has been cleansed & charged & are ready to programme while the other set is cleansing.

I sit in my spiritual room, shut the door, light some incense – usually sage & relax for a few minutes before I start, when I feel ready, I hold each one in turn & programme it to protect me from the effects of a fit, when I feel I have programmed enough energy into it, I put it to one side & when all the others are done, I put them in a medium velvet pouch, so I can carry them with me throughout the day.

I also put them under my pillow at night to protect me while I’m asleep.

The tumbles are able to protect me for about a month before I need to use fresh ones.

The crystals you have programmed can be used for as long as you want to.

When you have been using crystals for a while, you will notice when they start to lose their power; when this happens, just cleanse & charge them for a few hours, then they are ready to be programmed again.
