Healing Your Chakra System: A Complete Guide to the Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual Aspects of The Chakras
December 12, 2013 Leave a Comment
HJ: The development of your Chakra System directly relates to your level of consciousness and is not necessarily linear, meaning you can have partially developed/opened/blocked chakras. If, for example, you are generally operating at a high level of consciousness but have self expression issues, your throat chakra can be partially blocked while the third eye and crown may be much more fully open/active. The chakras are also dynamic, meaning that they can change over time moving from blocked to open and blocked again as one has various experiences that effect the self emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.
A common mistake people make is focusing only on the physical aspects of healing the chakras. While this is certainly important, it is really only one layer of 4 main layers (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) that affect each chakra. Always remember that energy moves downward from the spiritual realms into the mental, emotional, and ultimately physical experience, so dealing with spiritual issues has powerful effects that echo throughout the other aspects of the self. From this context one can see the fallacy of focusing solely on the physical aspects of the self and chakra system. However, as we primarily identify with the physical, this is usually seen to be the cause of and solution to many problems that are actually spiritual, mental or emotional in nature. So it is with the chakras. They are the interface between the higher etheric, spiritual realms and the physical body.
As always, do the internal spiritual, mental and emotional work and everything will naturally sort itself out. In this sense, working with the chakras offers an amazing innate bio-feedback mechanism to help one identify what areas of their own consciousness need the most attention and work. Understanding the chakra system will give you a roadmap for how various mental, emotional, physical and spiritual issues and imbalances (as well as those things that are in balance) manifest in the body, allowing you to better understand how to approach the healing of your mind body spirit triad.
