The Root Chakra


The focus today seems to be on the Heart Center or Chakra of our body.  Everyone, including me, has been offering courses and meditations on how to live from your Heart.

The other day, I was having a conversation with my I Am Presence, and I was given some vitally important information that, at the time, seemed so obvious that I wondered how I could have overlooked it.  Of course, anything is obvious, once you know it.  Before you know it, it’s a complete mystery.  So the joke is truly on me!!

This is the first in a series of blogs to explain how to link your Heart Center with the lower 3 chakras and why this is important.

The ROOT Chakra

Root ChakraHave you ever wondered why the Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine, is actually called the “Root” Chakra?

When I first heard this name, I just assumed it was called this because it was the lowest of the primary (the biggest) chakras in the human body.  This is not incorrect, but nearly so.

Humans actually have a channel that runs from the Crown Chakra on the top of the head to the Root Chakra at the base of the spine.  This channel should be (when clear and clean and open) as wide as your head.  There is also a channel that runs from the Crown Chakra all the way to Godhead.

And . . . there is a channel that runs from your Root Chakra down to the Earth Star chakra at the bottom of your auric field.  The Earth Star is located 6-8 inches below your feet, so if you are standing up, it is inside the Earth.

Usuualy, when you are told to ground yourself, you are told to open the secondary chakras in the arches of your feet and ground through them.  Ah, Ha!!  Here’s the key.  To be FULLY GROUNDED you, Divine One in Human Form, are meant to ground your energy like a TRIPOD – down through your legs, yes — but also down through the Root Channel from the Root Chakra to your Earth Star.

Look how stable a kangaroo is standing on 2 feet and 1 tail.  Think how much more stable you would be if you were standing on 2 feet and an additional column of energy.

The Root Chakra is the start of your energy root that is meant to ground you more fully.  When you ground as a tripod, you can be more fully connected to the Earth.

Why is this important?  Because the Earth is our Spiritual and Physical Mother.  All the “substances” in our physical body come from the Earth.   Without the assistance and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE of our EARTH MOTHER, we can not be here on the Earth Plane.

If you are intent on creating your reality in a new way, you need the assistance of Mother Earth and of the elemental beings whose job it is to transform your thoughtform (idea) into a physical state.

The Matrix of Reality is Divine Love

The underlying energy matrix of all reality is constructed from Divine Love or Love Without Conditions.  Therefore, if you intend to CONSCIOUSLY CREATE, the first step is grounding into the Earth. 

When you bring your I Am Presence fully down into your Root Chakra and then down the Root Channel and your legs into the Earth Star Chakra and then, with her permission, into the Heart of Mother Earth, you are consciously creating the linkage necessary to empower all of your Divine Creations.

Earth Mother then sends her Divine Love expression (energy) up through your feet and root channel to support your process.  You are fully connected and grounded and receiving Divine Love fully from your Mother.

Talk about being (and feeling) fully supported!!!

Overcoming Fear

Since the Root Chakra is associated with survival and trust issues, please consider that when you are fully Rooted, fully Grounded, and fully open to receive the Divine Love of your Earth Mother, then you are in a stronger, more powerful place from which to eliminate fear.


So step #1 to eliminating fear is GROUNDING the Divine Love that you have in your Heart Center and the Divine Consciousness of your I AM Presence through your ROOT CHANNEL and both your feet.

Then to begin to eliminate fear from your life, wrap your fear in Unconditional Love, limitless Love, Infinite Love, and watch your fear dissolve.

Invite your “ego” or your inner child (the little boy or girl inside you who is afraid of taking risks, having adventures, and expanding into higher consciousenss) to come into your arms.  Wrap that child up in Divine Love.  Observe what happens.

    This makes so much sense! This reminds me how important it is to ground myself every day and describes a very effective way to do it! Thank you, Nedda!

    I was wondering if you would say a little more about the “Earth Star” as I am unfamiliar with it. You say that it is located at the bottom of our auric field and that if one is standing up, it is in the earth because it is 6-8″ below the feet. So, if one is on the 3rd floor of a building, does the Earth Star adjust to be more than 6 – 8″ below one’s feet to be in the earth or does it remain in a constant relational position of 6-8″ below our feet, where ever they are? What is it’s function?

    I also have a question about the tripod analogy of grounding. Although I do a form of this, I’m not quite visualizing your description. Are you describing energy channels that form a tripod whose “legs” meet at the Energy Star and then descend into/connect with the earth, or are you saying the channels descend independently of the Earth Star?

    Thank you. Jane

      Hi, Jane,

      If you think of the auric field as an oval shape, which is how people who see these things actually see it, then the earth star would not become 3 stories tall because you’re on the 3rd floor of a building. What I believe happens is that, when we are up in the air, so to speak in a building, airplane, etc., we can, with intention, ground ourselves energetically by opening our Earth Star and sending our energy down through that chakra as a beam of energy into the Earth.

      The atmosphere is a part of the Earth’s body, too, you know. So we would send our energy down through the air.

      When we are lying down, our Earth Star is not touching the floor/dirt, but we still connect with the Earth through it.

      The function of the Earth Star is to enable humanity to ground and be connected with the Earth, our Mother. It is the main energy point where the Earth’s energies enter our aura and all of our energy bodies. Even our physical body is composed of energy, so it is included in the phrase “energy bodies.” The energy bodies consist of the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.

      Our bodies (all of them) are flexible. Our legs bend. Our channels are not straight lines. Our aura is curved. So yes, from our abdominal area to the Earth, we become like a tripod – three “legs of light” going down, and then meeting in the Earth Star to create a focused beam of light from our entire 4-body system.

    Hi Nedda-

    I love the tripod and the kangaroo images/suggestions you have given on how to ground yourself. Thank you so much for sharing that! I love your blogs – keep up the good work.
