Have you ever had a time where you seem to be out of control emotionally? You don’t even know why you feel the way you do, but you know you don’t like it. You wish to have your emotional balance back.
Well, you can look at your chakras to help you with that. Our energy centers, or chakras, can be blocked with limiting beliefs or negative emotions like unforgiveness or fear and cause an emotional upheaval in our lives. Some ways you know you are emotionally unbalanced are when you feel things like anger, paranoia, loneliness, depression, fear, anxiety, guilt, or experience unhealthy habits such as overeating, consuming too much alcohol, or foraying into risky sexual situations.
The Three Chakras
Three primary chakras are important to our emotions. They regulate what we are feeling and help us balance our emotions.
This chakra, located at the spine’s base, provides a sense of grounding. It is our foundation and is in charge of basic survival needs. This charka binds emotions in place. When it is out of balance, we can’t seem to have our needs met and that creates anxiety. You may also feel unworthy or in danger.
Solar Plexus Chakra
This chakra is how our emotions are used in earthly actions and spirituality. It is where our personality is created and is our “gut instinct.” A balanced solar plexus Chakra produces positivity, self-respect, compassion, personal power, hope, confidence, and a feeling of wholeness. When it is out of balance, it produces feelings like self-criticism, shame, fear, rejections, and powerlessness. You will feel like you need to fix things out of fear and won’t trust the natural flow of life.
This is the center of love, humanity, healing, and spirituality. The heart chakra is the balancing center of emotions. When it is balanced, all is right with the world. You feel love, unity, gratitude, joy, trust, faith, forgiveness, and empathy. An unbalanced heart chakra produces anger, bitterness, envy, conditional love, and jealousy.
Cleansing Your Chakras
There are several ways to cleanse and balance your chakras. You can do things like meditation and yoga, spend some time in nature, or learn something new spiritually. Sometimes, actively doing something in these areas will also help balance chakras. You can try things like planting some flowers or plants, helping a neighbor in some way, or fasting. Doing an activity will often unblock a chakra related to it because you are exercising it. Keep your chakras clear so you are ready to make important decisions and meet all the challenges of life
