Root Chakra Healing / Reading with the Tarot

The uses of the Tarot are pretty much limitless. Granted, you shouldn't eat your cards and smoking them is probably not advisable either but really, the only limits on how you can use the tarot for divination, healing and personal development are those your mind imposes.

Today we are going to look at how you can use tarot cards and a pendulum to divine the state of your root chakra. I plan on making similar videos for each of the chakras so do stay tuned if you enjoy this sort of thing. Enjoy!

While the video was uploading, I lay down and meditated with the red jasper over my third eye. I took a few deep breaths to re-energise and vitalise my root chakra. I feel a lot better now. I will continue to meditate with The Devil. I feel that I have many layers of meaning to uncover there and creating a tarot healing essence can only help the process.

Affirmation: "All my needs are met and I stand up for myself."

Great video and exercise Lisa! I did this too-meditated with the Red Jasper. My card was the Fool so my Root Chakra is doing somewhat better than it has been lately. Thank you for this!

Celeste :)

Thank you, Celeste! I'm glad you enjoyed the video and that your Root Chakra is doing better. I do believe mine is too after this :)

Hi Lisa,

I discovered your blog a few days ago and your work is really inspiring. Thank you for sharing it !

I have a question about the root chakra tarot card. Your video shows The Devil : Did you choose this one or did you spread it after having shuffled the 3 cards associated with the root chakra ?

I'm french and sometimes I am not sure of what I understand. Thank you for your enlightenment.

Hi Lisa :) !

I discovered your blog a few days ago and wanted to thank you for sharing your so inspiring work with the tarot. You helped me to put a name on the path I want to follow with the cards : Tarot healer, not only tarot reader ! I am french and I can tell you that here in France, we are really late with this kind of use of the tarot. We essentially use it for divination and that is a pity regarding all the other possibilities.

I have a question about the root chakra card. Your video shows The Devil : Did you choose this particular one or did you draw it after having shuffled the 3 cards associated with this chakra ? Sometimes I doubt about what I think I understand, so I am sorry if I missed the explanation somewhere in the video.

I enjoyed the video Lisa. Visuals are always good. Great exercise. Will you be doing the other chakras by the time? Thank you for all your work on your pages. I am following all of it and am learning so much from your perspective. Many blessings, Cat.

Hi Seasaidh, thank you for your kind words about my blog. Good question - I don't believe I was clear enough about it in the video. I randomly picked a card from a full deck, so it was quite a nice surprise that one of the main root chakra cards showed up. I will make sure to be clearer on this in the next video! Cheers, Lisa

Thank you, Cat! So sorry for the late reply. I'm not receiving the comments in my inbox like I used to for some reason. Glad you enjoyed the Root chakra vlog. I'm up to the Heart Chakra now and will complete the remaining three ASAP.

Thank you for this article.

I agree that the main aspects of the root chakra accompany a sense of belonging.

It seems to me that all our attempts to "reject life" or to change what we are feeling come from a fundamental failure to accept life - that is to accept where we are.

We are spiritual beings having the occasional experience after all - not the other way around. To be open at the root is to be here and truly embrace every experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. One person once called this the way of the peaceful warrior!

True spirituality is the courage to stay - not a means to escape.

We have a root meditation process that is offered as a gift to anyone who registers with our website. I hope that you enjoy and that this brings wellness into your life!
