Do You Have A Blocked Chakra

Explains how the chakra system helps regulate our well being and how to know if a chakra is blocked
Do you have a Blocked ChakraWhat is a ChakraAccording to Anodea Judith in her groundbreaking book, Wheels of Life; a chakra is a swirling intersection of vital life force that reflects an aspect of consciousness essential to everyone’s life. Every person has seven of these chakras which, together make up an individual formula that integrates mind, body, and spirit. Our chakra system is responsible for the makeup of our physical, psychological, and emotional actions. This complicated network of vortexes of energy provides the information that instructs our body and determines the reactions we all have to the way we perceive and react to the world. Each of the seven chakras is responsible for its own part of the body that makes up the whole complicated human system and within these parts of the body lies a particular physical, psychological and emotional component. To clarify, these spinning wheels, or disks denote a point of intersection where body and mind meet. Also called lotuses which symbolize the unfolding of flower petals and is a metaphorical description of a chakra. Lotus lowers are sacred in India and symbolize a path of development from a primitive being to a fully blossoming consciousness. Just like these flowers chakras can be open or closed; dying or blooming depending on a person’s inner state. The seven chakras line up in a vertical column along our spine and this connects the various dimensions of our energies, so when one dimension isn’t functioning properly; i., e., is undeveloped or open or closed, it affects the other chakras accordingly. In general the chakras expand from our feeling of security right up to our spirituality, located in our top, or “crown” chakra , and control our thoughts and behaviors involving every other aspect of ourselves which lie within those realms. Many experts in the science believe that the first or “root” chakra to be the most important one since if we don’t start with a firm foundation based in safety and security this can affect every other aspect of our personality and emotions. Furthermore each chakra is believed to relate to particular organs of the body, ailments, colors, elements, and emotions. Each chakra is supposed to develop at a certain stage of life or a specific age. Our root chakra develops within our mother’s womb up until about one to two years of age while our crown chakra develops throughout our lifetime. The ages of development may vary slightly and can overlap one another. For instance our knowledge and insight which comes from the sixth chakra also develops over a lifetime. Chakras are part of the ancient belief system associated with yoga. These traditions were handed down orally for thousands of years before being codified by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, several centuries before Christ. The ancient healing science of ayurveda is based on a collection of scriptures known as vedas (a Sanskrit word meaning knowledge or wisdom). Ayurveda literally means "life knowledge." It remained the predominant form of health care in India until the British colonial government tried to suppress it during the nineteenth century. Over the last half-century, however, a modernized form of ayurveda has gained considerable popularity in India. More recently, traditional ayurveda has been popularized in the West by such high-profile advocates as Deepak Chopra.
