Red Root - Strength



I consider the chakra system the Energy Bodies battery source. A chakra is a center of activity that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy. The word chakra literally translates as wheel or disk and refers to a spinning sphere of bioenergetics activity emanating from the major nerve ganglia branching forward from the spinal column. Chakra energy is within every living being. While we often concentrate on the ‘major eight’ there are also minor chakras in the hands, feet, fingertips, and shoulders. Raw energy is drawn up from the planet, through a being’s aura by the minor chakras in the legs and feet and fed into the main chakra system. This living energy field can be tapped into more deeply, by the application of focused, creative will.

Stitched with the healthy energy of this chakra into every stitch it is sure to bring the Strength, Safety, and Security you need into your world.
