Advancing Our Chakras, Strengthening our Foundation

A few weeks ago I posted the basics of each Chakra, which you can link to from yesterday’s blog about the Ninth Chakra.

This week I will be talking about some of the correspondences that go with each Chakra, allowing us to work with and understand them a little deeper. Friday will be a meditation that builds off the previous Chakra exercise, allowing you to open and strengthen them even further!

Correspondences to the Lower Chakras

Today will be about the Lower Chakras, tomorrow about the Upper Chakras


As I stated in the last post about the Root Chakra it is our source of grounding, and very important for anyone who does Healing or Psychic work. Yesterday you learned that the Earth Star Chakra can help you take that even deeper!

The Root Chakra is also about Manifestation, our relationship with our Physical Realm, as opposed to Vasundahara giving us a relationship to the Realm below us.


This Chakra is watched over by the Goddesses Pele and Kali.

Pele and Kali are the two primary Goddesses of Muladhara. They are both Fire Goddess and the rule over Manifestation, Transformation and the power to Create.

Pele hails from the Hawaiian Pantheon and is the keeper of the Cauldron of Lava, from which the Hawaiian Islands were born.
Kali is the Hindu Goddess of Death and Transformation.

Since both Goddess rule over the Earth it makes sense that they rule over the Root Chakra, and both push you to treat yourself (and others) with the deepest level of Respect.

They both teach us the lesson of learning what we need to let go of in order to grow and transform!


Gemstones connected to Muladhara are Black Tourmaline, Jet, Onyx, Red Adventurine and Red Jasper.

Herbs connected to Muladhara areAllspice, Angelica, Burdock, Cayenne, Cedarwood, Clove, Dandelion, Nutmeg, Paprika and Rosemary.

The Major Arcana Card in the Tarot that goes with the Root Chakra is The World and it’s Rune is Algiz.

Muladhara, The Four Leaf Lotus Flower


The Sacral Chakra is the domain of procreation and artistic expression, it houses all the potential we have for what will be!


Bastet, Ishtar and Rati are the Goddesses who Rule over the Sacral Chakra

Bastet, Ishtar and Rati are the Primary Goddess of the Sacral Chakral they are Teachers on the Sensual power of Passion and Desire.

Rati is the Hindu Goddess of Love, Lust and Physical Desire, as well as Sexual Intercourse & the Union of Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine.
Ishtar was a famed Mesopotamian Goddess of Desire, and Connecting you with your Innermost Self.
Bastet is the daughter of the Sun God, Ra in the Egyptian Pantheon, and Supreme Goddess of Pleasure.

Since they rule over the Chakra of Expression all you have to do work with them is simply set an Intention to do so. They are subtle, gentle, & seductive and urge to keep in touch with your truest self!

They teach us the lesson of not being ashamed of ourselves, and knowing how to express ourselves completely and in a healthy manner!

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the House of our Energy Field. It enables us to be Empowered, Confident and Capable!


Ma’at and Sekhmet are the Goddesses who rule over the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Ma’at and Sekhmet are two Primary Goddesses of Empowerment, hence they rule over the Solar Plexus Chakra. They give us the Focus, Will and Strength we need!

Sekhmet is the Egyptian Goddess of who rises in the East, the direction of Dawn and the Solar Plexus Chakra.
Ma’at is her counterpart, Patroness of Justice and Fair Outcomes; similar in many fashions to the Greek Diana, Goddess of the Hunt and Athena, Goddess of Wisdom.

With theses Goddesses come Change, Movement, Strength and Inspiration. They help us anytime we feel overwhelmed or incapable of completing the task at hand. With their assistance we are filled with Love, Power and Purpose – Limitless to do the very best we can!

These Goddesses teach us to Breath Deeply, and find our Center and Calm, no matter what the situation!

Sorry that the posts this week will all be a little on the longer side, it’s a lot of information all at once, so feel free to break it up and re-read them as many times as you want!

In weeks ahead I will talk more about the Tarot, the Runes and various Deities, so stay tuned. In the meantime, if you want more information about any of the correspondences from these blogs I will be happy to supply that or write more about them sooner.
