The Muladhara is usually the most constricted and blocked energy field within our bodies. It can easily come out of balance if you have experienced some sort of trauma that relates to your lack of safety and stability growing up. These life lessons can manifest as an imbalance in the root chakra throughout life if we do not transform and heal the experience that caused the trauma in the first place. Growing up in poverty, living in a dangerous place, imbalanced relationship with parental figures, especially the father figure or a lack of father figure altogether, parents that struggle with insecure financial situations, and any type of violence or abuse could all cause an unbalanced root chakra.
To feel connected to and part of the living earth is a crucial part of the overall health and balance of each individual. When we take into consideration that most people alive today are living in big cities with little or no contact with the natural world, it is no wonder that the root chakra is the most constricted and unbalanced chakra within the human race. To heal the root chakra we must as an individual, but also as a species, re-establish our connection with the earth.
The root chakra is the base and foundation for creating an opening of the chakras above. When you work on balancing your ground foundation, it will help to create an energy flow throughout your body, and again affect your overall health immensely.
