We all have them, but do you know what they are and how they affect you when they are blocked? We are talking about Chakras which are the spiritual energy centres that reside in your body.
Have you tapped into yours? Many have little knowledge or understanding of them. Learn about yours, and what happens to you when they are blocked.
This infographic from Chakra Healing is an excellent place to start. There are 7 Chakras that reside in your body. If you start at your base and work up, they are in the following order.
Your Root Chakra is your foundation, just like your house. It is what stabilizes you and gives you a sense of belonging. It is what keeps you grounded.
When it’s blocked: This is where anxiety disorders can originate from. Colon, bladder, lower back, leg and feet issues are also known to be associated.
This Chakra is located above the pubic bone and below our naval. It is our sexual and creative centre
When it’s blocked: If you are feeling uninspired and lacking creativity or you are feeling emotionally unstable this chakra may be out of whack. It is also known to be associated with physical sexual disfunction. If you fear change, suffer depression or addictions, you can start investigating here.
Solar Plexus Chakra
Your Solar Plexus Chakra is located in the ribcage area and is apparently responsible for the metabolic side of your body. When it comes to digestion and stomach related issues, this is where to look.
When it’s blocked: YouDo you find it hard to make decisions? Maybe you suffer from low self esteem? Do you feel a need to be in control and are you ruled by fear and anger? If you find yourself suffering procrastination and even apathy, this chakra should be on your hit list.
As expected, the heart Chakra is all about love. It is also directly related to forgiveness, something that is vital when it comes to our spiritual growth. When it is aligned, you will ooze good vibrations and the love will literally pour out of you.
When it’s blocked: A closed heart chakra can result in holding grudges, anger, fear of betrayal, jealousy and hate of self and others. This is where all those nasty, negative emotions hide out. They are the very things that stunt our growth and life progress and stifly opportunity and good health and fortune.
Our fifth chakra is all about speaking up and our inner truth. It’s who we truly are and how we feel. This Chakra is all about communication and is associated with the thyroid, parathyroid, jaw, neck, mouth, tongue, and larynx. When this Chakra is properly balanced you will find yourself to be a good listener and a clear communicator.
When it’s blocked: If you find it hard to stay focussed or speak your truth due to worrying what others may think about you, this is the Chakra to focus on. Physically, you may experience a sore throat, thyroid issues or even tension headaches.
Third Eye Chakra
The third-eye chakra
The third-eye chakra is your sixth chakra, and is smack in the middle of your eyebrows. It is associated with your pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain. These areas are said to be ruled by your Third Eye. It is also linked to our intuition.
Our intuition is the most valuable gift we have been given. Sadly, many would rather follow others, than trust themselves. Our inner voice is completely reliable and is a game changer once we tap into it. If your lower chakras are unbalanced or blocked, your third eye will likely be as well. This can result in poor decisions and lack of judgement. A third-eye blockage can result in depression, anxiety, headaches, dizziness, and other brain related issues.
Our Crown Chakra is known to be our center of enlightenment and our spiritual connection to our higher selves. The seventh chakra is located on the crown of our head. When in alignment we have the realization that we are part of something bigger than ourselves and we have a self awareness second to none.
When it’s blocked: If your crown chakra is blocked you may be suffering emotional distress or even a feeling of isolation. You may feel disconnected from family and friends and need to up your meditation and nature walks to realign yourself.
