Root Chakra Doll

The next of my spirit dolls I had a need I think my own root chakra needs some working on I had a wonderful time working with the strong reds and pinks

The Root Chakra governs issues around physical self-preservation. These issues include survival, security and safety, as well as primal erotic and procreational urges.

I used red coral to string from her hair and ended it with a cowrie shell a symbol of a fertile womb I also used a small red jelly plastic snake as a representative of the Goddess Kundalini. The doll shape is rounded and womanly full of fertile feminine promise. I used the symbol in the area of the womb to further accent this promise

The first chakra is actually the basis of both our masculine and feminine energy. It represents our masculine will and male sexual organs as well as the feminine energy of the Goddess Kundalini. Therefore, a man can learn to integrate his feminine power and a woman can learn to integrate her masculine power through the clearing and opening of this chakra.

The Root Chakra is about
  • Earth
  • survival
  • energy
  • being physically there and
  • feeling at home in situations.
The primary "right" is The Right To Be Here

When it is open, you feel
  1. grounded
  2. stable
  3. secure
  4. (mostly) trust toward people
  5. present in the here and now
  6. connected to your physical body
  7. you have sufficient territory.
When it is under-active (blocked chakras), you feel
  1. fearful
  2. nervous
  3. unwelcome
When it is over-active, you feel
  1. materialistic
  2. greedy
  3. obsessed with security
  4. resistant to change
The main emotion that blocks this is fear

I loved making this doll she is tactile and reassuring Next I think I will tackle the heart I need to do this one for a friend.
