The word “chakra” is Sanskrit for “wheel.” Chakras are energy centers within our bodies. There are many, but we often speak of the seven chakras that are aligned along the spine, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.
The root chakra is the first chakra, or base chakra, located at the base of the spine.
The root chakra is responsible for our connection to Earth. Our sense of security is related to the root chakra. People who feel insecure, especially financially, often have root chakra problems.
People who struggle with body weight often have root chakra issues, as well.
When we garden, bake bread, walk barefoot and spend time in nature, we are nurturing our connection to Earth, and healing the root chakra.
Through the root chakra, and our connection to Earth, we are able to create abundance and wellness in our lives.
On Augusts 3rd we enjoyed a brand new episode featuring Jean Redman and the upcoming Bali Tarot. We had a great conversation about Jean’s lengthy tarot career, her years in Bali and her development of the Bali Tarot.
Particularly interesting to me is the story of how Jean found the tarot archetypes within the spiritual culture of Bali. I also enjoyed Jean’s spiritual message and philosophies; I think you will, too!
Coming up on August 10th, we will enjoy an encore presentation of a show featuring twelve interesting people with unique spiritual paths, all answering one single question.
Enjoy the show at 9 pm Sunday evening on PEN, or find it on my YouTube channel.
Christiana’s Psychic Café is my weekly webcast. It airs on the Para Encounters Network, each Sunday at 9 pm Eastern.
Traditionally, the Nine of Cups is known as the “wish” card, or the “card of wishes fulfilled.” I sometimes call this the “fat and happy card.” The Nine of Cups has also been called “the Happy Merchant.”
In tarot, the number nine can express fullness. In the Nine of Cups, what we are full of is satisfaction.
Key words for the Nine of Cups include satisfaction, happiness, and fulfillment.
Although the Nine of Cups belongs to the element of Water, which is related to emotion and feelings rather than commerce or resources, it is interesting to note that many people associate the satisfaction of business ownership with the Nine of Cups.
In some situations, therefore, the Nine of Cups could reflect a successful business venture, or the desire to start a business.
The Nine of Cups can also appear in a reading to ask you to be clear about what you want to manifest in your life. What is it you wish for? What do you need to do to make sure your wishes are fulfilled?
Generally, the Nine of Cups is seen as an extremely positive card, reflecting a sense of happiness and accomplishment.
Next week we will finish our journey through the Cups pip cards with the Ten of Cups.
