ROOT CHAKRA LECTURE

In this lecture we’ll be talking about the root chakra, Muladhara chakra. 

This chakra is all about physical security. If you’ve ever looked at Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, physiological needs are at the base of the pyramid. Having our physical needs met is always going to be the number one priority. We need to feel safe physically before we can think about branching out and pursuing other aspects of life. So the root chakra is really about creating this stable foundation in the physical. When this chakra is balanced, we feel safe and secure in our physical environment and in our physical bodies. We feel connected to the earth and connected to our bodies. And from that feeling of being rooted and connected, we can then feel powerful and confident enough to rise up.
