From our very early years, we’ve been taught about the five senses that help with functionality – the sense of touch, smell, sight, hearing, and taste. But modern science has never bothered to throw light on the energy centers which enable us to go about our everyday lives – the energy centers known as chakras. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of attending a yoga class, chances are that you have already heard about these “points” from where energy originates. The concept was first introduced in an ancient Indian text called “Vedas.” Historical knowledge indicates that there are 7 basic chakras, but the complete system actually consists of 12.
Although chakras are purely spiritual, if they are found to be unbalanced, they could negatively affect your physical state, which is part of the reason why having a stable flow of energy is so crucial. In this blog post, I’m going to share with you the symptoms that you need to look out for, which are all signs of unbalanced chakras, as well as what you can do to regain control.
Warning Signs of Unbalanced Chakras
Initially, you are better off focusing on the seven basic ones, which are the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and the crown chakras. If you want to go one step further and learn about the soul star chakra, spirit chakra, universal chakra, galactic chakra, and the divine gateway chakra (the five which complete the 12-chakra system), I invite you to attend my 12 Chakra Activation and Alignment event on September 14th. You can get your tickets here.
For now, let’s discuss the 7 basic chakras.
As the name suggests, this chakra is located at the very end of your spine, which is the root or base of your physical body. The root chakra is the foundation of your energy system, which is why it’s necessary to keep it balanced. Physical signs of an unbalanced root chakra range from feeling discomfort and a lack of functionality in the feet and knees to facing rectal and reproductive problems. Moreover, this chakra directly affects your perception about the basic necessities of life like money, shelter, and food.
- Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra exists about 2 inches below your navel. It is said to be directly linked to a person’s sexual performance and control over their desires. If the balance of the sacral chakra is lost, a person could experience reproductive, urinary, and pelvic issues. A lack of creativity, pleasure, charisma, and self-control also indicate an imbalance.
- Solar Plexus Chakra
The solar plexus chakra can be pinpointed in the gut area (in between the rib cage and the navel), which is why having digestive and gastrointestinal problems (such as stomach ulcers) could be signs of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra. Other physical symptoms include chronic fatigue, abnormal blood pressure, and diabetes. From the point of view of a person’s emotional state, having an unbalanced solar plexus chakra directly affects self-esteem.
- Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is linked directly to the performance of all body parts located within or outside the chest and the emotions originating from love and hate. A heart chakra that is not balanced poses dangerous threats such as cardiovascular and lung diseases. Women can also face medical problems originating in their breasts. Negative emotions such as jealousy, anger, and even abnormally excessive love can also arise.
- Throat Chakra
Thyroid issues such as a chronic sore throat, infections, and ulcers indicate that you need to work on balancing your throat chakra. This chakra is associated with verbally expressing how you feel inside which is why, if it isn’t balanced, failing to express yourself and having little or no control over your words should not come as a surprise.
- Third Eye Chakra
In the Hindu scripture, the “third eye” is linked with divinity and establishing a bridge between all beings. Your third eye chakra serves a similar purpose. Located in the center of your forehead, the third eye chakra is linked with the sinus and vision and an unbalance in this chakra results in issues related to these parts of your body. The physical symptoms are usually also accompanied by moodiness.
- Crown Chakra
The crown chakra is located at the top of the head (where a person would usually wear a crown). Increased sensitivity to sound and light, along with depression and anxiety can result from an unbalanced crown chakra. The crown chakra affects consciousness and awareness.
Tips to Regain Balance of Your Chakras
Meditation is said to be the best remedy for unbalanced chakras. Sitting alone and removing the noise of this world from your mind and soul can do wonders for you in terms of regaining control over your energy centers.
- Use Affirmations
Another effective cure for balancing chakras is using affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that you can recite on a daily basis to give yourself a boost of motivation and internal happiness. You can use a different affirmation for every chakra.
Massaging different parts of your body with essential oils can also help. Choosing the muscles that fall into the domains of the unbalanced chakras can yield instant results. For example, if you want to work on your root chakra, massage your legs and gluteal muscles.
- Use Chakra Stones
Did you know that there is a special stone for every chakra? Chakra stones feature special healing energies and vibrations which can help tap into your dormant energy centers and regain balance.
I hope that you are now equipped with the knowledge and awareness to work on your chakras. If you feel any of the physical or emotional symptoms discussed above, you should consider the possibility that they could be resulting from an unbalanced chakra.
