According to medical intuitive and author Caroline Myss: “Every thought and experience you’ve ever had in your life gets filtered through these chakra databases. Each event is recorded into your cells. In other words, ‘your biography becomes your biology.’ When chakra energy is blocked or misdirected, emotional and physical illness can arise.”
Chakras transmit and receive information in the form of energy. A balance is ideal, with each chakra interacting with each other as well as within its own “realm” which includes nerve ganglia, organs, body systems, emotions, glands and their hormones. However, they can become out of balance through trauma, negative experiences or attitudes, or limited belief systems. An imbalance can cause some chakras to become over or under active. But how does that affect your life?
Too much or too little energy can affect the way you think, act and feel. Energy medicine practitioners believe that a prolonged energy imbalance can lead to physical illness and disease, so chakra balancing is promoted for its preventative measures.
Chakra balance can affect your life in numerous ways, here are just a few examples:
|First or Root||Money Issues||Feeling Safe||Clumsy|
|Second or Sacral||Non-Creative||Friendly||Chauvinistic|
|Third or Solar Plexus||Timid||Confident||Egotistical|
|Fourth or Heart||Selfish||Empathic||Overly Sensitive|
|Fifth or Throat||Withdrawn||Communicative||Critical|
|Sixth or Third Eye||Difficulty Focusing||Intuitive||Judgemental|
|Seventh or Crown||Lacking Purpose||Trusting in the Divine||Feeling Superior|
Clearing chakras makes a better flow of energy available for life’s work. When chakras are balanced they work together to distribute energy effectively. Energy flows between them, resulting in a natural state of spirituality, prosperity and abundance, joy and emotional security. When your chakras are balanced you feel whole, complete and open.
One way to determine if you have an energy imbalance is to examine your thoughts. Judgmental or negative thoughts may lead to physical or mental ailment or dysfunction. We often hear “You are what you eat”, but even before that “You are what you think”.
A life that demonstrates physical emotional, mental and spiritual balance is surely one which includes a healthy chakra system.
