As a kickoff to Through The Chakras // A Seven Week Journey, I thought it would be incredibly fun to send out a chakra check. What is a chakra? Chakras are located in our astral bodies and can't be seen with the naked eye. However, they can definitely be felt - especially if one or more is out of balance, constricted or closed. Chakras are the subtle energy bodies connected with the spinal column, various organ systems, and channel systems (meridians and nadis).
These energy channels transmit and exchange the energy flow between you and your environment. Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency, have their own unique associated sound, element, vibration, and color. The lower the chakra, the slower the vibration. The higher the chakra, the faster the vibration. All seven chakras need to be balanced to achieve overall health and healing.
The lower three chakras represent the physical body: safety, survival, sex, and action. The fourth chakra acts as the bridge to the upper three chakras, which connect us to our higher self, the universe, and spirit. All of the chakras must be balanced for physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Mind, Body, Spirit - or as I like to refer to it, The Holy Trinity. Imbalances can cause physical, mental, and emotional symptoms.
Healthy chakras that are in expansion are when life is in balance. When functioning as they should, we feel safe and stable and usually just feel great - both emotionally and physically. We can easily express how we're feeling, our emotions, and are in touch with the overall sensuality of being human. We feel inspired, fueled, and passionate; self-empowered and confident. We feel open to expression and highly creative. We trust our choices, our intuition and have the ability to stand in our purpose knowing we are each uniquely divine.
Throughout the course of Through The Chakras // A Seven Week Journey, you will learn how to open and work with your chakras. But the first step is identifying which of your chakras may be in need of additional time, love, and attention. If you're wanting to make significant changes in any part of your life, the best way is to go within as what is done to heal the inside - reflects back to us on the outside. As we balance our chakras, we are working with our energy fields to bring them to full health. The result is wholeness and wellness - attracting new opportunities, people, situations, and improving the overall quality of our lives.
As you go through this questionnaire, it's important to remember there's no right or wrong - no good or bad. Take extra care to not judge yourself or overthink it. It's simply about awareness and information. The more we know and learn about our energy, protecting our energy, and how we expend our energy, the more we can balance these things accordingly.
The results from this quiz will show you if you have any imbalances (excessive or deficient energy) in your chakras. You may also find you are excessive in one chakra while being deficient in another. I have found that sometimes when we experience an imbalance, another chakra will try and pick up the slack. It's like when you have a physical injury and the body finds other ways to overcompensate.
I wish you many blessings on this journey and if you find that you want to learn more or learn how to balance your chakras, this seven week online workshop may be just the answer you've been looking for.
