Assessing Your Chakras

The beginning of your chakra journey…

The chakras can help us gain incredible insight into both our conscious and unconscious patterns and behaviours. By listening to our body and mind and paying attention to our interactions with the outside world, we can see where we are being held back or self-sabotaging, where we experience blockages and stagnation and where we flourish. Learning about the chakras can make us aware of current or long-held tendencies and then provide us with formulas to help heal and overcome any areas of concern.

To begin, it’s important to understand that each chakra governs particular themes and areas of life as well as emotions and even organs within our body. Our chakras can be blocked/deficient or open/excessive. When a chakra is blocked it is in a closed-off state, meaning it is unable to receive or generate energy concerning the themes and issues associated with it. This could manifest as chronic avoidance of the issues of that chakra in question.

When a chakra is open/excessive, all available energy we have is channeled through, generated from, and geared towards that particular chakra and its related themes. An open/excessive chakra might manifest as obsession and fixation with those issues/energies.

So with that in mind, lets first assess our chakras to gain a better understanding of the chakras which are out of balance, and what we can do to bring it into alignment and balance.
