As mentioned above, each of your seven chakras is distinct in the ways it affects your body and mind. Below, I briefly discuss each chakra one-by-one so that you can get a sense of how chakra balancing can help improve all areas of your life. Get in touch with me today to request a chakra balancing session.
The Root Chakra (Muladhara)
Located at the very “root” of your bottom, the bottom of the spin, the root chakra is foundational. An unblocked root chakra gives you feelings of security and peace, and is essential for pursuing major life goals. Your Root Chakra may become blocked if something threatens your basic survival (food, shelter, or money).
Physical Location: Tailbone
Emotional Dangers of a Blocked Root Chakra: Panic, paranoia, anxiety
Physical Dangers of a Blocked Root Chakra: Sore lower back, fatigue, cold extremities
The Sacral Chakra (Svadhishthana)
The Sacral Chakra affects your creativity, sexuality, and pleasure in all its forms. This chakra may become misaligned or blocked if you are in an unsatisfying relationship or struggling to have confidence in your artistic abilities.
Physical Location: In the middle of the abdomen, about two inches below the belly button
Emotional Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Boredom, fear of change, addictive thoughts
Physical Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Low sex drive, urinary discomfort, increased allergy issues
The Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
An unblocked Solar Plexus Chakra is essential for maintaining a healthy sense of self-esteem, autonomy, and determination. It helps you understand what you need for success and take the steps necessary to achieve. Your Solar Plexus Chakra may become blocked by perceived failures.
Physical Location: Top of the abdomen
Emotional Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Insecurity, a sense of being “stuck”
Physical Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Digestive problems, memory troubles
The Heart Chakra (Anahata)
This chakra is connected with your capacity for love and compassion. It allows you to offer and receive empathy and unconditional love. Breakups, grief, and instances of cruelty can all cause a blockage in your Heart Chakra.
Physical Location: Directly above the heart
Emotional Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Difficulty relating to other people, irritability
Physical Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: High blood pressure, lowered immune system function
The Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
The Throat Chakra relates to your directness, authenticity, and ownership of your needs. An unblocked throat chakra is essential for being able to say what you mean. Difficult experiences with communication can block this chakra, such as a misunderstanding with a friend, or a bad job interview.
Physical Location: The middle of the throat
Emotional Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Difficulty communicating, difficulty expressing yourself creativity, sense of failure
Physical Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Neck pain, hormone fluctuations, throat discomfort
The Third Eye (Ajna)
As a powerful energy center, the Third Eye Chakra determines your intuition and allows you to see the overall “bigger picture.” This chakra can become misaligned if you are doubting your wider purpose.
Physical Location: The center of the brow
Emotional Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Low self-esteem, apathy, difficulty making decisions
Physical Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Insomnia, memory troubles
The Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
The highest chakra on the body, the Crown Chakra affects your sense of spirituality. It allows you to be in tune with the world and experience feelings of profound joy. Experiencing trauma of any kind can block this chakra.
Physical Location: The top of the head
Emotional Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Depression, apathy, decreased motivation
Physical Dangers of a Blocked Sacral Chakra: Problems with coordination, chronic headaches
