Energies going in or out of the chakras influence the muscles, the nervous system and the glands. In short, it affects the whole system and so a blocked chakra can create troubles in all environing areas. With open and flowing chakras, a person will feel vibrant and radiant, ready to love life fully. But with partly or entirely blocked chakras, a person does not have full access to his or her energy, which leads to perplexity, gloominess, an off-centred feeling, or just general miasma. Energies can become blocked by tightening muscles, poor posture, or holding back energy in chakras.
Vivacious colours in a chakra suggest concord and progress. Dreary or grayed and dark areas across part of the chakras designate troubles, whether non-developments, negativity, fear of relating to the world, or physical, emotional or mental blocks. One may observe that some chakras are much more active than ones which surround them; people may over-emphasise a specific chakra and feed it by pulling energy from neighbouring chakras.
This leads to sickness. On the other hand, blocking one chakra creates clogging in the whole area; blocking the sexual chakras, for instance, out of panic of the sexual energy, may block the whole lower belly area, slowing all its functions.
People with low self images incline to pull energy in, particularly negative energy, since low self-image is negative. One might even take on others' maladies.
Too much unassimilated (hence, unusable) energy may bring a strong sense of inertia, limpness, or gloominess or a congested, 'no-energy-to-cope' feeling. Restlessness, irritability and sickness or ineffectiveness makes up the basic pattern of this condition. Ingenious projects, physical exercise and meditation help to incorporate and use blocked energy.
Chakras may 'blow open' in times of tension, up to a foot in breadth, much for good energy use. Blow-outs happen with unmanageable energy and commonly affect the heart, solar plexus and navel. Drugs may also blow the chakras open, most often the head chakras. The result of blow-out is ineffectiveness from the affected area and incredible energy ejection that exhausts the rest of the body.
One can first try thinking the chakra back into an improved position; if that does not help, one might need professional assistance. One could also take one's hand and gently go over the chakra three to four inches above the body, directing surplus energy back into the body. One can move the hand clockwise or anticlockwise, whichever feels good.
Pain in a specific chakra points that the chakra is trying to open. One can try to gently massaging the area to help its release. If the pain persists, it is advised to cease instantly. One can put their awareness into that chakra, admitting thoughts and feelings to come to one's awareness and opening one to determine what has been blocked. When consciousness comes, pain or the block will normally vanish, but if it remains, it would be a better idea to get medical assistance.
Illness and Visiting the Sick
During sickness, it can be very helpful to receive energy from a visitor, particularly when it is peaceful. Both the sick person and the sender are aroused in the process. It is fantastic partnership. A thoughtless, oblivious visitor, however, sometimes in fact debilitates energy from the sick, worsening their condition.
A miserable person may profit from receiving another's inspiring energy, but could also be obstructed from going into and working on the dispiriting energies. A general awareness of energies and their flows helps one comprehend how to use one's own energies more efficiently with others.
When visiting the sick it is best to be as mended and whole in one's own body as feasible. The flow between oneself and the reluctant must be natural. It is best to always allow energy to flow as it will; pushing or directing it too much turns it into little needles, a force of destruction rather than remedial.
Exercise is truly very helpful in toning up one's body against illness. It is better to keep in mind, however, that taxing, rough exercise (which builds up the larger muscles), inclines to create blocks, while dancing, swimming, yoga, or tai chi- all lean towards poise and releases the chakra flow.
Lemurian Chakra Healing
In Lemuria, a therapist draws energy from the patient's chakra relating to the sickness, brings it into his or her body, turns it into positive energy and sends it back into the patient through an elevated chakra. If, for instance, the navel chakra demonstrates a problem, the therapist would soak up energy from that point, cure it, then send it out the heart chakra to the patient's heart chakra and down to the navel area, substituting the energy. The basic thing is to put energy back into the cured chakra, which otherwise could draw more sickness; this also safeguards the therapist against the sickness.
Massage and Body Work
Massage and other body work are brilliant for equilibrising energies throughout the body and permitting an apt chakra flow. It is tricky to relax and do a systematic job- massaging one's own body.
Samadhi is a Sanskrit word meaning 'evenness' and delineating a poise between inner body forces and forces from around the body. One must search for Samadhi for a chakra that does not flow appropriately. At times breathing a flat breath - a breath that feels flat up and down the front of the chest - helps one to bring in the sense of constancy. Filling the chakra with a lavender colour may help, or one can simply ask to feel Samadhi. Working to experience Samadhi brings inner peace and tranquility, alleviating growth and mending. When looking for Samadhi it is best to start with one of the heart chakras, moving on from there in whatever form one desires.
Rocks, Minerals, and Healing
Energies from rocks and minerals has an explicit outcome on chakras, bringing curing or arousing. One can experiment with diverse rocks and minerals to see which appeals them. It can be placed on various chakras and one can scrutinise one's own energy responses.
It is hard to uphold a healthy level. The body inclines either to go into sickness or weakness or into vivacity; there has to be movement one way or the other. Glow, meaning liveliness and openness, is definitely preferable to sickness, but to achieve it one must have good energy flow all through the body. One can contemplate of the things that help one to keep the body more vividly alive. The list might include exercise, diet, delight, smelling flowers, love - an assortment all kinds of things. It is best to maintain a running list and add to it from time to time and try to do something from the list on a daily basis. In due course, one will naturally do what keeps themselves radiant.
