The four-petaled white chakra, or spiritual center, located at the base of the spinal column. It is associated with the fourth ray and the expression of purity, hope, joy, self-discipline, integration, perfection, wholeness and nurturing. Its Sanskrit name is Mūlādhāra, meaning “root” and “base,” or “foundation.”
The base-of-the-spine chakra is the cradle of the Mother. Its four petals set the pattern for the flowering of the Mother flame in each of the four lower bodies. Our entire physical universe is a manifestation of Mother because it is Spirit’s point of focalization in Matter. From that point, the soul (the feminine potential of man and woman) rises for the reunion of Mother with Father in the crown, which brings forth the Son, the Christ, in the center of the heart.
When you have the mastery of the base chakra, you attain the omnipresent consciousness of Mother Mary. And it is the white fire of the Mother that gives you the power to be everywhere on earth simultaneously. Self-mastery of the base-of-the-spine chakra is the secret of the bilocation and levitation of the saints. In the East, its fire is known as the Kundalini.
Djwal Kul says of this chakra:
In the four petals of the base-of-the-spine chakra is the opportunity for the mastery of self in Matter, for taking dominion over earth, air, fire, and water. The base of the spine is the very foundation of life in form. It is the square of the base of the pyramid that is built line upon line by the wise master builders who have learned to focus the threefold flame not only in the center of the pyramid, but also in the center of every stone that is laid according to the chief cornerstone, the Christ consciousness without which no other stone is laid that is laid.
The four petals of the Mother are for the anchoring in Matter-form of the action of the squaring of the fires of the heart chakra whereby the circle of infinity becomes the cube of God Self-awareness in time and space. The four petals form the base of the figure-eight pattern—even the flow of the caduceus—that crosses in the heart chakra and reaches its culmination in the crown of life.
These four petals symbolize twin flames mastering the energies of life “as above, so below”—plus and minus in Alpha, plus and minus in Omega. Whether in Spirit or in Mater, in the flame of the Divine Mother twin flames converge for the union of the energies of life that are for the emancipation of the Christ consciousness in all. White light bursts forth as a thousand suns signal across the skies the fohatic emanations of the eternal Logos.
