Uncovering Maslow’s Pyramid and seeing what basic needs of mine are still not filled.

By Åsa Nilsson | Nov 24, 2023

Ahhh, family time! Thanksgiving week in the USA! 

This week I am looking in the proverbial mirror (yet again) to see what it is that is “triggering” me into childhood responses. 

When put to the “test”, will I DO better? 

After my sister introduced me to Abraham Maslow’s Pyramid of the 5 Core Needs which form the basis for human behavioural motivation, I see I am missing a few of the ‘core’ pieces. 

Not for nothing, right? This is divine timing to be presented with Maslow, especially when I am witnessing the recurrence of mistrust and not feeling safe. 

How can I see myself with an honest and gentle eye AND be thankful for everything I have that fills me? 

What we look for we find. 

I want to continue uncovering my old patterning so I can remember what is mine to work on and what is to be left behind. For good.
