Our chakras are wheels of energy in specific parts of our bodies. They are ideally opening and closing, breathing if you will, taking energy in and releasing energy out all the time.
The most common chakras are the 7 going up the center of our bodies, starting with our Root and ending above our heads in the Crown. I like to add the Thymus chakra to the “regular” list, as well as the liver and spleen because with my clients, those are so often blocked.
Blocked or closed chakras can lead to illness. The chakra vortexes correspond to nerve centers in our physical body. The organs and areas of the body that correspond to a specific chakra can experience a build up of old and dank energy, creating a type of energetic cesspool that can collect emotions, experiences, and feelings. Because our emotions can effect our physical selves, it’s important to have an awareness of what are feelings are and where we’re feeling them to avoid illness. Recognizing our feelings and helping them move through us is really important to wellness.
You can use mindfulness to help yourself try to release energy blocks when you feel them, but I find I need someone to help me remove large blocks and process the emotions that go with them. Reach out to a holistic energy healer for assistance if you’re like me and need someone else’s energy to help move your own.
I like the simple descriptions on Chopra.com if you want to learn more.
