About Muladhara, the Root Chakra
Basic needs such as food, water, shelter, and security are governed by the root chakra as well as your emotional needs regarding safety. Associated emotions include fear and anxiety.
Energetically, this chakra marks the beginning of our journey from physical awareness towards spiritual enlightenment, and because of this, it is most closely connected to the earth, home and family as well as the physical body including the bones, the teeth, the muscles and the sinews.
Muladhara develops between the 2nd trimester (pre-birth) and 12 months of age so events occurring during this time can have a great effect on the development of this chakra including events that may have occurred for the mother whilst the fetus was in utero.

Balancing the Root Chakra.
We can maintain a balanced Root chakra by managing issues associated with feelings of security. Firstly by establishing a healthy diet and exercise routine, we can ground ourselves in our physical body.
Secondly, it is important for us to establish a secure home environment or experience of home, this may mean working through any issues around housing security from our childhoods.
Thirdly, by working with on our financial stability through attracting a secure income, budgeting and creating a nest egg, we round out our security needs in the material environment.
Kinesiology can help us to identify chakra imbalances by accessing the many and varied subconscious connections that lead to the imbalance. By working with muscle testing, kinesiology allows us to unlock and integrate past experiences and events that have caused chakra blocks.
