Root Chakra Symbol Painting 12 x 12 Canvas
The root chakra is commonly recognized for the serpent . As a symbol meaning wisdom and power, the serpent rests within this energy center coiled upon itself three and a half times. The three coils may represent the three states of consciousness as well as the past, present, and future.
Historically revered as a symbol meaning wisdom and strength, the elephant represents the root, or Muladhara, chakra. In various spiritual traditions, from Hinduism to Shamanism, the elephant is symbolic of compassion, intelligence, confidence, and ancient wisdom. All of which are representative of the base chakra and the Kundalini energy it houses.
The root chakra image is surrounded by four red lotus petals — each representing a different element of the human psyche, mind, ego, intellect and consciousness .
Muladhara is related to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality. Physically, Muladhara governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security. Muladhara has a relation to the sense of smell.
