How Do Our Chakras Get Blocked

7 chakra meditation

What are Chakras and how can they be blocked?:

Chakras are psycho-spiritual energy centers that govern our thinking, feelings, sensations, emotions, perception, and intuition. 

They are not part of the physical body but part of the biological process within the body.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word for wheel.

These are spiraling wheels that allow the flow of energy in and out of the chakras when spinning properly. 

The energy flowing within the chakras influence our thoughts, actions, and behavior.

An unobstructed flow of this energy indicates good psychosomatic health, confidence, high self-esteem, and overall well-being.

When working properly we feel alert and alive with energy.

What causes chakras to be blocked?:

Our chakras get blocked in two ways.

  •  When the energy flow is deficient, this is referred to as the flow of energy is underactive. 
  • When the energy flow is in excess, this is referred to as the energy flow as being overactive.

If the chakras are spinning too slow we feel tired, ungrounded, and lacking energy.

Or if one or more chakras spin too quickly we feel hyper, tense, or overly nervous, causing us to feel burned out. 

Both of these scenarios are threatening to us.

Most of us have energetic blockage and imbalances that prevent us from accessing our full vitality.

Which leads us to feel exhausted, scattered, dull, and anxious. 

The chakras are all Interconnected.

Chakras are all interconnected spinning wheels of energy. 

That connect the physical body to the energetic field.

Imbalance in one chakra, may affect the other chakras.

This is why it is hard to troubleshoot which chakra needs support, because they are all interconnected. 

Once the blocked chakra is pinpoint.

Then we need to activate the energy to open or unblock it.

Because balanced chakras are a higher state of consciousness.

The main principle at work when opening your chakras are the ideas of balance and unblocking the chakra system.

Some of these methods are simple, traditional, or more modern means.  

We will show some simple methods of opening your chakras system once they show blockage in another article.

Blocked Chakras:

Blocked chakras occur when the energy is deficient or when the energy is in excess.

It’s important to have your chakras facilitate the flow of energy when in the open state.

Having a chakra blockage means that something is preventing the chakra from taking in energy.

This hindered energy flow will affect the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a person.

And cause symptoms to arise.

Why do chakras get blocked?:

Chakras get blocked because we forget our true nature of who we are.

The block can be physical with fatty deposits in the arteries like tumors, cysts, or excess waste.

Or the block could be emotional, psychological, or spiritual in nature.

There are telltale signs your chakras may be blocked.

Therefore, you should be in-tuned to your body and notice these signs.

This enables you to get on the road to recovery and healing faster.

How stress and anxiety affect our body

Some of the main causes of a blocked chakra are related to stress or anxiety.

Both of which have a direct influence on our bodies.

By creating a tightness within the body’s tissue restricting our breath causing a blockage.

This could be due to ongoing stress, anxiety, or negative emotions.

Our chakras cannot function at this loss, when there is a blockage in the energy pathway.

This blockage restricts a smooth energy flow through our chakras system.  

 Which reduces our mind’s ability to focus peacefully on the movement of energy through the body.

Resulting in a physical blockage, an emotional blockage, a psychological blockage, or a spiritual blockage.

How do our chakras get blocked?  

Our chakras get blocked because we forget our true nature and who we are to fit in.

Being what others desire is more important than being ourselves.

If your chakras become imbalanced you may experience unexplained anxiety or nightmares.

And you may get a feeling that other people are not listening to you or not hearing what you are saying.

You may experience health problems connected to elimination.

Problems with the colon, bladder, lower back, feet, or the legs. 

Problems like high blood pressure, symptoms of allergies, or asthma-related breathing problems, and tension headaches.

Or jealousy, anger,  or resentment towards others or yourself.

Lose your confidence and self-esteem and develop an unhealthy ego.

Over time you may create a subconscious belief that you are not good enough.

You may try to fill this feeling of emptiness by engaging in material pleasures.

Like smoking, drinking, unhealthy eating, shopping, drugs, social media, or television.

Making poor lifestyle choices.  All of which create energy blocks within the chakras.
