How Energy Flow and the Chakras Affect Your Life and Body

Did you know that the energy flowing throughout your body plays a vital part in your physical and emotional health and well being, and all areas and facets of your life in general?

Most physical symptoms, aches, pain and illnesses are often caused by emotional and mental trauma and self-limiting belief systems that have been suppressed and held in the body and in the subconscious mind over some time, sometimes even decades. The physical and emotional symptoms experienced are also a result of an accumulation of energetic imbalances and disturbances in the flow of energy throughout the energetic centres and pathways, just as the original trauma can cause imbalances and disturbances in the flow of energy pathways themselves.

Due to symptoms being a result of energetic blocks and imbalances, physical symptoms and ailments can be eased or healed by correcting these energetic imbalances. By correcting these energy imbalances and blocks, it can also begin correcting and releasing hidden blocks and limiting beliefs that have been caused by the trauma and negative experiences, and in return, help improve your life and outlook, not just the physical symptom or illness.

Energies that flow throughout our body, flow through energy centres known as chakras, and pathways known as meridians, as well as within and around the human body known as the human energy field (HEF) or aura. The most common corrections begin with the chakras that are the spinning vortices that distribute certain frequencies of energy within and around the body and the aura. The seven major chakras are linked with physical organs and body functions, as well as different emotional and mental states. Each individual chakra vibrates at different speeds and frequencies and resonates to different colour and sound frequencies. This is why I also include sound and colour therapies within performing Reiki and energy corrections in my treatments. When a chakra accumulates stress, it becomes less able to assimilate and direct appropriate energy into the associated parts of the body. Depending on the stress and trauma, and how long the stress is held or experienced, the imbalance that results in the energy pathways can be an under-active, stagnant, closed, or a blocked chakra, which I correct within each treatment, as changes in the body, thoughts, emotions and life improve.

Even though each chakra has a particular focus of action, they are all interrelated, and so when one chakra becomes disturbed or out of balance, it can upset the functioning of all other chakras, and over time, this may contribute and result to a variety of aches and pains, or illness and disease, or emotional upset. When performing a chakra assessment, to find the state of my patient's chakras, I often initially find more than one chakra that is affected by any given emotional and mental causes and the resulting physical symptom. Whatever imbalances are found, it indicates what is going on either physically, emotionally, mentally, and often externally in their lives and how their lives are affecting the flow of energies. At subsequent treatments, these chakra assessments indicate the amount of improvement that has occurred since the previous treatment and energy corrections, and how these energy corrections have positively affected their body, thoughts and life in general.

With the following descriptions of the chakras and their physical and emotional connections, you will get an idea of what and where you may have imbalances in your 7 chakra system, depending on your current symptoms and circumstances.

The red Base or Root chakra is situated at the base of the spine and is closely related to the 'physical' as it is related to our sense of foundation, safety and security, survival, finance, money, material possessions, work, career, and all our physical needs, such as food, water and clothing etc. It is connected to the feet, ankles, legs, knees, bottom, hips, pelvis, lower back, and sciatic nerve.

The orange Sacral chakra is located just below the navel and spins faster than the base chakra. and is the centre of sexual health, sensuality, feeling desirable and sensual, vitality, energy levels, creativity, desires and appetites, and enjoyment of life. It governs the reproductive system and all the reproductive organs – womb, ovaries and genitals, testes as well as the bladder.

The yellow Solar plexus chakra is situated just below the ribcage and is the centre of our inner power and strength, confidence, self-esteem and self-worth, courage, emotional stability, healthy boundaries, motivation and our ability to achieve our desired goals. It is connected to and governs the stomach, liver, spleen, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, abdomen, digestive system and food assimilation.

The green Heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest and is related to giving and receiving love, unconditional love, all forms of relationships, compassion and forgiveness, and is connected to the heart, ribs, chest, upper back, lungs, bronchial, the immune system, circulatory system and the respiratory system and thymus and thyroid. It helps integrate and blend the lower energies and physical aspects of life, and the higher energies and spiritual aspects of life. This is also where negative emotions such as emotional hurts, resentment, hatred, revenge, guilt, blame, are held, and these negative emotions can cause many different physical symptoms, not just in the chest area, but also elsewhere in the body.

The blue Throat chakra, is obviously situated in the throat, right in the dip of the sternum and relates to all forms of communication, honesty, speaking and living your truth, and living or moving towards your life purpose. It is also the chakra connected to clairaudience and channelling. It is connected to the mouth, teeth, throat, larynx, oesophagus, jaw, and ears, and even the neck and shoulders.

Located in the middle of the forehead between your two eyes is the indigo Brow chakra, and your Third Eye, which is connected to our intuitive and psychic abilities, psychic perception, clairvoyance, seeing and knowing the truth, as well as seeing the past, present and future, self-reflection and self-knowledge. It is connected to your physical eyes, sinus, and your entire face as well as the pineal and pituitary glands.

The violet crown chakra is located just above the top of the head and is also connected to the pineal and pituitary glands. as well as to the brain, skull and cerebellum. It is the centre of spirituality, connection to the higher self, spiritual wisdom, knowledge and the connection to divine guidance as well as being the centre for claircognizance.

You can begin correcting the energy flow of your 7 major chakra systems by simply breathing deeply the associated colour into the chakra itself. In addition to the intention of breathing the colour going into the chakra that begins to heal and energise the chakra, the deeper breathing helps your body and mental thoughts to relax and release tension, which subsequently allows your body to begin healing. As the body cannot heal while in a stressed state, breathing and relaxation techniques will also help your body to heal, and your thoughts and outlook to improve.

FAQs About How Chakras Affect Your Life

What do the 7 chakras mean?

There are various energy centres in your body that correspond to nerve bundles and internal organs. From the top of your head to the base of your spine, there are seven major channels. The different chakra systems in the energy center include the root chakra, sacral chakra, solar plexus chakra, heart chakra, throat chakra, third eye chakra and crown chakra. These represent the intersection between the physical body and the spiritual mind.

How do chakras affect your life?

The life force energy or vital energy is influenced by the chakras. Mental and spiritual health problems can be traced to a blocked and disrupted chakra. In order to establish a harmonious influence of the energy centres, you can balance and cleanse the blocked chakras.

How do I know if my chakras are activated?

In order to activate or energise one or more of the 7 chakras, you will need to choose the most appropriate meditation or breathing exercises. Once it opens up, you will most likely feel a physical sensation, which will vary from person to person and indicates that the energy has become balanced.
