As you know, I’m a big proponent of using a spiritual healer or trained Reiki master. It’s something I do for others, and I feel very passionate about the practice. However, there are times when you can perform your own healing without the assistance of these wise healers. Knowing how to unblock chakras is invaluable for anyone along this journey.
Today, I’d like to share some tips on how you can accomplish this on your own.
How to Unblock Chakras
Your spirit complex consists of seven chakras. These flow up the centre of your body from the base of your spine to the top of your head, red through violet. In order to remain fully balanced, you must have free-flowing vital cosmic energy throughout each chakra.
Learning how to unblock chakras will open the pathway of energy flow, resulting in balance, peace and inner harmony. Would you love to approach life in a calm, balanced way?
Opening up your chakras makes this possible. Each one is different and requires its own method of release. And you won’t find complete freedom in just one or two sessions. We all face blockages from time to time, and most people spend their entire lives on a journey of complete balance and harmony.
Red is the physical body and does not include the soul. It’s also known as the root chakra and resides in the pelvis area, in front of the base of the spine. When you face a blockage here, it will manifest as ill health or emotional issues. Commonly, a personal will suffer with a sickness or inability to control basic emotions.
You’ll find that simply caring for yourself can clear your blockage. The things that we’ve heard all our lives will provide freedom in this chakra:
- Regular exercise
- Healthy diet
- Quit smoking
- Living an active life
- Stop excessive drinking
- Get enough sleep
Science teaches that emotional and mental health problems can often be controlled by a healthy lifestyle. From a chakra perspective, this rings true because the red chakra becomes unblocked through these new habits. Therefore, energy flows and causes a dissipation of negative energy.
Orange is your personal energy complex called your sacral chakra and is found in the lower abdomen area just below your navel. When facing a blockage here, you’ll struggle with misunderstanding, negative self-talk, and a lack of self-acceptance or self-worth.
Clearing this area can be very uncomfortable because it requires a practice of self-examination and contemplation. Sitting in silent meditation opens the mind and leads you down a path of self-discovery. And, most importantly, you’ll find acceptance of yourself. Once you find love and acceptance for every part of yourself, blockages will fall away.
Yellow is all about ego. You can find it in the upper abdomen area and is also known as the solar plexus. It’s your building block to power and self-development. When blocked, it results in an inflated ego focused too much on gaining power, manipulating others and serving yourself. It could also manifest as the reverse, leaving your unable to interact socially or becoming controlled by others.
Clearing the blockage lies in an understanding of unity and equality. Become mindful of the truth that we are all from one source, equal and one with each other. Practice giving love, receiving love, serving others. These thing will set you on a path to balance and freedom in this chakra.
Green is your compassion and universal love. Its located in your chest, just above your heart and therefore is also known as your heart chakra. It’s blockages in this area that manifest as hatred or loathing for a person or group of people. Hate is a dangerous feeling and has been the source of death throughout history. It’s vital that we don’t have blockages here.
To remain clear and allow energy to flow, you must practice love in every aspect of your life. Keep in mind, this isn’t just limited to people. But you should also show love to animals, nature, the planet and the universe. Complete openness here will manifest as a person full of light who can look at someone who hates them and respond with true love and compassion.
This chakra is located in the throat area and is focused on our communication. People who are blocked have trouble expressing their thoughts and feelings. They may also find it difficult to understand and accept important life lessons.
Having a clear yellow energy center is beneficial because you’ll have balance in your mindset of others. And a clear orange-rey will also help because communication is easier when we have confidence and self-acceptance. With those areas clear, you can start by working on your communication skills. Practice makes perfect. Start a journal, attend a communication course, strike up conversations with strangers. Also, work on your listening skills. Remember, communication isn’t just about conveying your thoughts, but also accepting other’s contributions to the conversation.
This chakras holds your third eye and is found behind the centre of your forehead. This chakras holds your third eye. Blockages will manifest as feeling as if your efforts or endeavors are are futile cause. You’ll feel unworthy and incapable.
Balance comes from meditation. Take an active approach to meditating and sitting in silence. As you open yourself up, the gateway to intelligent infinity can be opened in your life. This will result in an increase of self-worth and understanding. You’ll feel the healing powers of life force energy working in your body.
Your crown chakra is your connection to spirit and therefore is found at the top of your head. A balance here is dependent of free flowing energy in your other chakras. There’s nothing you can do to autonomously balance this area. Instead, focus on clearing your other energy centers and the balance will happen on its own.
Knowing how to unblock chakras will lead to a life full of peace, balance and harmony. It’s a goal we should all strive for along our journey. And while it may not happen overnight, the investment in unblocking yourself will be worth it.
While you can (and should) work on this yourself, an energy healing session can help you get started. Give Healing a try!
