I think the movie JAWS is good for the root chakra. It gets us to realize there are threats out there (grounding), to approach those fears and conquer them. It is interesting to note that both Roy Scheider (deceased) and Richard Dreyfus are both Scorpios. Scorpio is related to the root chakra.
To achieve purification, we must vanquish corruption in ourselves, which was displayed by the town mayor and to a lesser extent, the town council when they tried to low-ball Capt. Quint.
The efforts of those in the boat were for the good of all, which is the best way to dissolve fear.

Dead Can Dance

by Penny

Music by Dead Can Dance and or Lisa Gerrard. Especially their last album: Anastasis. I've never known how to talk about the energy I feel, I just know it's there, but this music has always moved me in ways that I'm sure has to do with our chakras.

Here we go

I really wanted to send a small word to say thanks to you for the fantastic points you are writing on this site.

I agree, Penny. Dead Can Dance is energetically very powerful. I have not heard their latest, nor the solo work of Lisa Gerrard. I'm inspired to seek it out now.

the fountain

by Kristen
(Dallas Tx)

My first thought was the movie the fountain with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weis. Im not sure if it can be limited to one chakra though. Im reminded of a tree growing as a theme for the whole movie. When I meditate I picture myself as a tree through majority of my meditation. I encourage you to see this beautiful movie if you already haven't.

Trees and Fountains and Central Channels
by: Nancy Hausauer


I do love the image of the tree/fountain. (And Ted Andrews, too.) I think that tapping into our "treeness" can lift our energy amazingly high -- I've often thought of trees as Bodhisattvas. --Nancy

Kristen, The Fountain sounds wonderful. I will try to wrap my branches around a copy soon.
Nancy, the Central Column is a pertanent theme, from what I can tell about The Fountain and Kristen's meditations. Ted Andrews has a great tree meditation called Clearing the Central Column in his book How To Uncover Your Past Lives.
Actually, I am much like a fountain when I breathe cool, dark, nutrient-rich energy out of the top of my head, into my leaves above me and then into the air.

I'll have to see the Fountain
by: Nancy Hausauer

Perhaps the tree is a metaphor for the central channel? I'm looking forward to seeing it. Thanks!

The Winged Nike of Samothrace Took My Breath Away

by Nancy Hausauer
(Tacoma Washington)

To start the ball rolling, I thought I'd share a profound energetic experience that I had with a work of art.

When I was in my early 20s (this was a REALLY long time ago!) I was traveling around Europe. Of course I visited France, and of course I visited the Louvre.

I was ascending a regal staircase, heading toward the 2nd century BC Greek sculpture, the Winged Nike of Samothrace, which has been called one of the most celebrated sculptures of all time.

I knew nothing about its fame at that time, though, and in fact was having kind of a ho-hum moment about seeing it, being a little overwhelmed at that point by all that amazing art.

And then I saw it. And it was like the wind was knocked out of me. I literally could not breathe for a few moments.

Why did this ancient, wingless, headless statue have such a forceful physical impact on me? It could only have been the powerful energy of the work, which I know now but did not know then.

It still thrills me to think about this experience. The Rilke poem "Archaic Torso of Apollo" describes it with amazing precision. (You can Google it to read it.)

I'm not sure if I can pinpoint which chakra my Winged Nike experience most impacted, but I do know that it elevated my energy, increased my personal vitality, and gave me a preview into the subtle world of energy that has since become such an important part of my life. I'd love to go back and see it again and I wonder if it would have the same impact.

Thanks for sharing your energizing experience! Since you experienced a physical re-juvenation by viewing this work of art, it may be that all your chakras received a simultaneous influx of energy.
Have you had any relative impressions, visualizations, since?
Is it unusual for you to experience such a profound interfacing with art works of that period/place?
