8 easy techniques you can do at home to unblock your chakras
Your chakras are your body's main energy points so if any of them get blocked up, everything becomes unbalanced which leaves you susceptable to illness, negative feelings and tiredness. On the other hand, if your chakras are clear and energy can flow easily, you'll be able to fight off illnesses, your thinking will be clear, and you can concentrate on being happy and content - yay!
How do chakras get blocked?
There are many reasons energy may get sluggish at certain points of the body. Sometimes it's due to an accident like a fall or a strain; it could be because of an illness or something has happened which has upset you. It could simply be that you are overworked, tired or stressed. Fortunately, there are some really easy ways to help keep that energy flowing and they can be done almost anytime and anywhere!
1. Listen to music
There's a good reason why different music makes us feel different feels; and one of those reasons is that the vibrations of music gets not only our feet tapping, but every cell in our bodies zapping around! So - in the shower, on the way to work, while you're mopping the floor - turn up your favourite happy tunes and get a good dose of happy hormones!
Yup - there's no getting round it - exercise is vital to our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. The main thing is to get the heartrate up for at least 20 -30 minutes. And yes - great sex counts!
3. Drink water
Over the years there's been controversy over how much water we're supposed to drink but whatever the magic figure is, it's a given that pure O2 rehydrates us in every way, and increases our mental performance, as well as our physical condition. Basically - drink water before bed, first thing in the morning, and carry a bottle around with you during the day. If you're feeling a bit shabby, try to avoid alcohol for a while and increase the pure fluids.
4. Go barefoot
Here I go again with the hippie advice - but seriously - pressure points in our feet are linked to every part of our bodies and we spend most of our lives restricting them with socks and shoes... worse... work shoes and high heels. By simply walking around the house barefoot - or even better, doing a Pretty Woman and getting the wet grass between your toes - you'll be giving your trotters (and the rest of your body) a sensory bathing.
5. Twist and Shout!
This kinda links to No. 1 as we're back to vibrations but this time you're the instrument! How any times do you feel like having a good old scream or shout but you hold it in for fear of looking like a total lunatic? Fair enough - unless you're under the age of about three it's just not socially acceptable. However, when you get a moment to yourself, what's to stop you? Let out all that pent up tension and have a good shout - Sing at the top of your voice - do some chanting. If you still feel a bit silly, put on a football game and shout at the referee. Even better - get your groove on while singing - dancing gets the body moving in different ways from normal and helps to get all that energy flowing around.
6. Keep a Diary
Okay so this one can take a bit of practise but writing down your thoughts and reflections can really help open up your insight, perception and communication. If you've time to spend thinking about something that's upset you, you've time to write it down. Often by putting our thoughts down in black and white can help our minds settle down and allow us to move on. Likewise, recording our achievements and goals can help cement that little bit of feel good to carry around with us.
7. Make a mood board
I LOVE mood boards - and what a fabulous way to procrastinate! Basically, compile images (or words) of what you want your future to look like and stick them on a board. That way, you can gaze at your dreams as long as you want and allow those goals to manifest as you go about your day. You can make it as basic or as fancy as you like - and you can keep adding to it whenever you want.
8. Do a good deed
There's nothing like helping someone out to give you the warm fuzzy feels. Just a small act of kindness like letting someone ahead of you in the queue, opening a door for someone, or offering to help someone with their bags can have a big affect on you and the person you're helping. If you want to take it to the next level you could do some regular volunteer work.
Holistic therapies such as Reiki and Sound Healing are great for claring and balancing your chakras, but there are small things you can do each day to help keep them that way.
