Chakras are a significant sign of your health and well being. They can show you where you are storing painful experiences from your life. Sluggish or completely blocked chakras can cause pain and eventually disease in the areas of the body where they occur. Balancing and releasing stagnant energy is a very healthy thing to do.
Letting go of past hurts and painful situations is not always an easy, stuffing them into your subconscious and storing them in your body is much easier than addressing them as they arise.
Very few people will ever activate their chakras. In order to be successful at opening your chakras you have to be diligent and committed. Jesus was known to be one of those who did. If you do activate your energy centers, either fully or partially, many things can happen. There will be an increase of compassion, more empathy, a knowing or understanding of things without people telling you, psychic abilities in some cases, an overall healthier body and mind.
The best way to get your chakra open and functioning is through your intention. By focusing your attention on each one of your chakras and doing a daily meditation practice your can begin to sense and feel where you may have blockages. As you do this things that have been held there may start to come up. Don’t concern yourself with what is coming up, just let it come and go. You don’t need to remember all of the details of your painful experiences, you just need to release them. Little by little your body will begin to give up what it has been holding onto for what could be many years or even lifetimes. As this process gradually unfolds you will come closer and closer to opening your chakras.
When there is chakra that has been closed for a long time it can have a negative impact on the energy center above and below it. A sort of chain reaction starts to occur and other energy centers can become over or under active. For example, if your heart has been broken and your heart center is closed then your solar plexus chakra could become over active to protect you by being in control, since it is related to your will and your power. If we go down one further to your sacral chakra, which is your fun center responsible for creativity, sex, dance, and anything artsy, it could become affected by your solar plexus being over dominating which in turn causes your sacral chakra to shut down. In other words you can’t be having fun while you are trying to control everything so you don’t get hurt. This is how the chakra system works, it works together.
