In this dreamlike Southwestern scene, a prayer flag or flying carpet floats in the unbounded blue sky, accompanied by the sun, crescent moon, and a flying green ladder with silver flames. The symbol on the flying carpet represents the root or first chakra, Muladhara, origin of the Kundalini energy. The root chakra is like the root of a tree; it helps nourish and ground us in existence in this beautiful physical world. The root chakra image is based on one found in a 17th century Nepalese scroll.
