The 7 Chakras of the Human Body
Want to know a little more about your 7 chakras? Check out the infographic below!
Imagine seven “wheels” of energy spinning in your body along its center line, from the base of your spine to the top of your head. These subtle energy channels each correspond to different areas of the body as well as to specific life situations.
They channel energy to where it’s needed, for optimal health and well-being.
In many ways, the chakras are like intersections in a busy city.
Chakras channel traffic, and the traffic grid is designed to keep traffic flowing freely.
But as we have all experienced, city traffic can easily become snarled. All it takes is one angry or insensitive driver blocking an intersection, and everything comes to a stop.
Traffic “upstream” from the blockage becomes an impassable domino effect of cars clogging the streets and blocking other intersections. And “downstream,” the streets are empty.
This infographic depicts each of the 7 Chakras: their position, their purpose, and how to tell if they are blocked or off balance:
How Blocked Chakras Affect Your Energy Flow
If one or more of your chakras are blocked, they cause disturbances and imbalances on both sides of the flow.
The result is stagnating energy that causes poor health, undesirable life conditions, unhappiness and a sense that nothing is going right.
You may have blockages or imbalances in several chakras, but it is often due to one major blockage in one chakra that then affects the others.
Here’s how to tell if any of your 12 chakras are blocked:
1. You Experience Constant Insecurity
Your root chakra is responsible for your survival. When the energy center is healthy, it enables you to have an abundance mindset, provide for yourself, and feel like you belong to the community. But when it’s blocked, you might fall into a scarcity mindset, be unable to provide for yourself, and feel like you don’t belong. Root chakra problems can put you into a state of constant insecurity.
2. You Don’t Feel Passionate Or Inspired
Your sacral chakra is responsible for your creative and sexual energies. A healthy sacral chakra keeps us feeling inspired so we can channel these energies in a healthy and productive way. But when there’s a blockage, you might experience a lack of sexual desire and creative motivations.
3. You Feel Like A Victim
Your solar plexus chakra is all about power. When this energy center is healthy, you know how to wield your innermost power to apply discipline, create confidence, and manifest what you want. A blocked solar plexus chakra can keep you in perpetual victim mode, unable to take control of your life.
4. You Sabotage Your Relationships
Your heart chakra empowers you to accept and give love. And when it’s healthy, you know how to open yourself up to loving relationships. Your positive vibes attract people to you. But if your desire to guard yourself against other people keeps you feeling angry, sad, or otherwise hurt, it’s possible that you have a blocked heart chakra.
5. You Have Difficulty Communicating
Your throat chakra is responsible for self-expression. When you have a flowing throat chakra, you’re able to express yourself easily, either verbally or through your art. But when there’s a blockage, you’re more likely to be the “quiet one” in your professional circles and feel fear around voicing your opinions.
6. You Feel Lost
Your third eye chakra connects to your intuition. If your third eye chakra is open, then you’re more able to “see” the truth. Your intuition can become so strong that you feel almost clairvoyant. But when it is blocked, everything might seem grey in front of you. You might be unable to detect the truth or sense your direction in life.
7. You Feel Disconnected
The crown chakra connects you to the divine. When this energy center is healthy, you feel a sense of “oneness,” a deep unity that connects you to everything in the Universe. If the energy center is unhealthy, then you likely feel disconnected from a higher power, from the source.
