Why is your Chakra Health important?
Your Chakras affect your overall health – energetically, emotionally, mentally and physically.
We have over 100 chakras in our bodies but there are 7 major ones that govern crucial areas of your life. These 7 govern: your sense of safety and security; your sexual well-being; your career; creativity; love; your ability to express yourself; your intuition; and your connection to higher consciousness. They are also tied to physical parts of your body – limbs, torso, organs, vascular system, and the central nervous system.
We are energetic beings and we create energy within our bodies as well as take on energy from other people, events and places.
Have you ever had someone ask you why you were angry or sad when you thought you were hiding it well? Or have you ever walked into a room and felt something was off? Or felt the energy rolling off a child when s/he is frustrated? Strong emotions, adverse experiences and even past life events create energy that is stored in our Chakras. Not only are we affected by what happens to us, but our Chakras can absorb energy from other people, events and even places that have strong energy stored there.
Neglect your Chakra health and physical pain and illness can result.
If these types of energy are held in our Chakras, the Chakras become unbalanced and energy doesn’t flow through the system as it should. It can then affect our energetic, mental and emotional well-being, leaving us feeling depleted, tired, anxious, fractious, disconnected, or off-kilter. If the energy isn’t cleared out and the Chakras balanced, it builds up and can start to affect our physical health. Pain in your lower back? You could be holding grief in your Root Chakra. Or worry for your financial situation is stuck there. The longer it is held, the more chance it has to turn into a serious illness like cancer.
Care for the energetic health of your Chakras and feel better.
Releasing energy and keeping your Chakras balanced will not only leave you feeling more balanced, energetic and comfortable but it will aid your emotional, mental and physical health. It can restore calm, peace and release pain. Any of these methods will help. Breath deeply into the Chakra that governs the area of your life that you feel needs it. Image a white light entering the affected Chakra and clearing it out. Meditate on the affected Chakra will help. Shower and imagine the energy being washed away.
