Our focus this week is on the Root Chakra (Muladhara Chakra), which is about building a strong and stable foundation for our lives, and for our other chakras to be built upon.
Optional Activity: Make Your Own Chakra Flags
Each week, we are going to be making one of the seven chakra flags. The very act of slowing down and concentrating on each chakra helps to bring that chakra into alignment. This is not compulsory but highly recommended.
Click on the link below (Chakra Printable) and print out the symbol for the chakra.
Place the printed paper and the corresponding coloured rectangle over a window and use the light behind it to trace the shape onto your flag
Add the affirmations that resonate with you.
After the seven flags are finished, sew them onto your string or cord.
Hang them in your sacred space.
If you'd like to skip the preparations and purchase a set of flags already set up and ready to decorate, you can get them HERE.

What areas need the most attention/healing?
