Physical identity, oriented to self-preservation, (being grounded) represents the element of earth, and is therefore related to our survival instincts and to our sense of centered connection to our bodies and the physical plane. You are grounded in every energetic frequency you choose to be aligned with.
Balancing the Root Chakra
Muladhara: 1st Chakra (Base or Root Chakra): Earth, Physical identity, oriented to self-preservation Located at the base of the spine, this chakra forms our foundation. It represents the element earth, and is therefore related to our survival instincts, and to our sense of grounding and connection to our bodies and the physical plane. Ideally this chakra brings us health, prosperity, security, and dynamic presence.
The color for the root chakra is red or black and it is grounded with your power. When this chakra is open, you feel in good health and connected with your physical body. It is used to ground your essence into your physical body. This chakra gives you determination, grounds you and aids in survival in the physical realms.
When this chakra is balanced, the masculine and feminine energy work together to make you strong and vital, when it is not balanced, the feminine aspects disappear and you can become overbearing and have difficulty with the ego. Physically, it governs the kidneys and the spinal column. To help activate this chakra, use red candles, clothes or lights. Use red sparingly as it can also strengthen anger if it is present. The symbol of this chakra is the Square.
Named as one of the rulers of the Virtues, a sphere or level of angelic influence, Uriel is named as one of the seven archangels in the Book of Enoch, who stand before God. His name represents the “fire or light of God”. He is the transmitter of God’s light and therefore, considered the illuminator. Uriel helps those who have lost their way or feel abandon, fearful or suicidal.
Maintaining a healthy foundation is one of the most powerful ways to strengthen and build your light body. In this meditation, Archangel Uriel guides you through a cleansing, healing and strengthening process to help you remain grounded and energized.

Grounding Meditation with Archangel Uriel
Take some peaceful breaths of cleansing, renewing air. Feel the breath as it enters the body. Each breath should be deeper than the next, as you inhale you bring the breath all the way down into the Root Chakra. Breathe deeper and feel the breath draw not just from the air around you but also from the earth below. Let the earth energy surround you and flow into you. Feel it surrounding you altogether as you slowly begin to relax and let go.
As you sink deeper into this relaxation, feel yourself moving gently deeper into your body. Allow your body to melt into the floor beneath you. Know that the floor is supported by the secure structure of the building, the building by the secure foundation and the foundation is supported by secure mother Earth and the security of Archangel Uriel.
The sense of security you allow is compared to that of being rocked back and forth…. back and forth by your Archangel, Uriel. Sense the flutter of the wings gently beneath you. The heaviness of your body supported by the angelic embrace. Let go of the tension in your neck and shoulders. Let your arms release and your rib cage expand and open with each breath. Your hips are supported and your legs are shaken free of the binds that keep you from moving forward.
As your feet, ankles and toes tingle and wiggle, you feel the energy flow through the base of each foot.
When you choose to come back… sense the support from you crystals and slowly raise the energy back up to behind your eyes. When you are ready, slowly open your eyes and bring yourself back.
Hang on to the wonderful support you have just created until you are ready to revisit your angel.
