As a tarot reader and self-discovery coach, my main use of tarot is as a means of exploring my – or my client’s – inner self more deeply. As we go through life, we pick up different conditionings – from society and from our closest interactions with family, teachers, and friends – and once we reach independent adulthood, we may start to see how these beliefs and conditionings no longer align with our soul’s true thoughts and feelings. Though we may start to form our own belief and moral system, the things that we picked up throughout our life are still in our subconscious; traumas and emotional events can actually lodge into our very being – and cause our chakra system and physical body to begin showing symptoms of this misalignment.

As I venture deeper into the inner workings of the chakra energy system of the body, I can see much more clearly how very important and necessary it is to have a balanced, open, and aligned root – or Base – Chakra. The Root Chakra, located at the base of our spine, is our safety & security center. If we feel any type of danger or distress in our life, it affects the root chakra. The root chakra is essentially the foundation on which we’ve built our lives. Our fears, insecurities, the things that make us feel unsafe, those we mistrust become “cracks”. These “cracks” then begin to crumble our foundation and this is when we start to feel the chaos and loss of control seeping in leaving us feeling dizzy, anxious, and depressed.

I’ve created this tarot spread to help explore our Root Chakra, and to shine light on where we can begin healing this foundational energy center. By working to align and open your root chakra, you will begin to see your world transform – from your ability to manifest all that you want in the world, to the improvement in your sense of belonging and worth in yourself.
