Each chakra controls a different energy pattern within the body and soul. Wicca can be understood in relation to the chakras. Indeed, one of the reasons why I find Wicca to be such a powerful spiritual path is because it equally honors and nurtures the energies of all seven chakras. The first, or root chakra, governs our most basic connection to the earthly plane, to having a physical body with material needs. Like the first chakra, Wicca honors the basic goodness of Nature, the earth, and the physical world.
