What Are Chakras?

What Are Chakras?

The chakras are the energy centers that regulate the flow of life force energy in our bodies. Just like Feng Shui adjusts the flow of energy in a space, chakra alignment practices manage the flow of energy in the body.   

Why Do Chakras Become Blocked? 

Our chakras open and close naturally many times throughout the day. Problems don't always arise from a blocked chakra. Sometimes, it is due to an overactive chakra. When the energy isn't flowing through a chakra in a balanced way, we start to have symptoms related to the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects that are managed by that chakra.An unbalanced chakra can be caused by many reasons, but some of the most common include:

  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Unhealthy lifestyle habits
  • Lack of self care
  • Ignoring changes you know you should make

 Why Is Chakra Alignment Important? 

When you experience complete chakra alignment, everything in your life will improve. Generally speaking, however, we go through periods of our lives when we are working to balance certain chakras.
We may have a couple months where we feel on top of the world. During those times, it is clear that our chakras are functioning optimally.At other times, however, we feel off kilter in certain areas of our lives or we may even feel like we hit rock bottom altogether. 
Life is a constant ebb and flow. We have cycles and we have ups and downs. But, when we better understand our body's chakra system, we can understand why things go awry and how to get back on track.

By working to align the chakras on a consistent basis, we can have less ebbs and more flows. 

Just as the body needs consistent exercise, our energy system need consistent chakra alignment to help us feel our best.
