Chakras are our body’s energy centers that influence our emotional and spiritual well-being along with affecting the physical regions of the body.
Hence it is important to know what might block these energy centers, what is the importance of chakra cleansing, the benefits of chakra cleansing, and what one can do to keep them open and balanced.
What blocks your Chakras?
Blocked chakras can occur due to many factors. Some of these factors are similar to those linked to physical diseases and illnesses like eating processed foods, not exercising, holding on to old beliefs and painful emotions, etc. Such thoughts and habits can block your chakras and create stagnant energy. With the body’s energetic system getting compromised, you get a feeling of being stuck and unable to move forward.
Following is a brief understanding of the seven main chakras and emotions connected to them:
Root chakra – Eating disorders, Trauma, Fear.
Sacral chakra – Fear of change, Addiction behaviors, Emotional instability.
Solar plexus chakra – Mental, Emotional, Sexual, or Physical abuse, Bullying, Lack of self-worth.
Heart chakra – Overthinking, Unhealed emotional wounds, Emotional pain, Grief, Stress.
Throat chakra – Fear of speaking your truth, Self-expression issues, Low self-esteem.
Third eye chakra – Not questioning your reality, Blind obedience, A closed mind.
Crown chakra – Lack of meaningful relationships, Deeply rooted negative beliefs, Overactive ego.
Importance of Chakra Cleansing
Over time, it is completely natural for your chakras to become blocked.
Unaligned, blocked or closed chakras stops the flow of energy and can severely affect you physically, emotionally and even spiritually. In order to experience high energy levels, a healthy zest for life, and to experience general vitality, it is important to keep your energy flowing through unobstructed, clear paths.
Identifying and recognizing your energy and emotional patterns and behaviors can help in focussing on which energy centers need cleansing.
These issues could develop into physical symptoms or even more serious health issues, if they are left unattended and unresolved.
Benefits of Chakra Cleansing
Incorporating chakra cleansing into your daily or weekly routine helps in addressing a specific issue faced or assists in general well-being. Chakra cleansing also keeps your spiritual energy clear of negativity.
You can either chakra cleanse only when symptoms strike, or regularly whether your chakra are blocked or not. As you become more consistent in your chakra cleansing schedules, you will soon notice positive physical and energetic changes. Some benefits of chakra cleansing are:
Increased intuitive ability
Increased sense of lightness and harmony
Elimination of headaches
Strengthening of your aura
Chakra Cleansing Techniques
Your energy system needs to be nourished and nurtured as it is a vital part of your multidimensional existence. Cleansing and unblocking your chakras is an ideal way to get your energy free flowing again.
Chakra cleansing and achieving a balance to your energy centers can be done by using various chakra healing techniques like meditation, yoga, reiki, mindfulness, healthy eating, and healing crystal stones.
To help the general flow of energy, you can perform a chakra cleansing meditation for all your chakras at once. Alternatively, you can also do an individual chakra cleansing meditation on whichever chakra is blocked. Chakra healing crystals can also be used to assist in cleansing chakras.
Along with chakra cleansing, however, eating nutrient-rich foods, having some daily body movement & exercise, as well as getting quality sleep, are all important to keep your mind, body, and spirit well and thriving.
