I used to think of chakras and energy work stuff as woo woo.
Till I became and acupuncturist and realized that energy is just circulation of ions in the body.
And that humans are all electrical beings that respond to stimulation of various kinds to move ions.
Ions are your electrolytes and minerals that float around in your blood stream and pass back and forth between your cells.
They control muscle contractions, energy making by your cells and pretty much every process that you body engages in.
If your ions aka energy circulation is off then you’ll have symptoms that reflect where circulation is compromised.
Chakras are concentrated areas of ion movement aka energy flow or circulation.
They are associated with different organs in the body and certain symptoms.
Certain areas of the body have high ion concentration because of the high level of nerve activity needed in those particular areas.
If circulation of ions isn’t happening optimally in high ion traffic areas you will have energy blockages.
Think of these blockages as nerves not being able to fire correctly as you use sodium and potassium for nerve communication.
Or perhaps another example is muscles may twitch, spasm or be tight if magnesium or potassium ion levels are off.
How do Chakras end up out of balance in the first place?
Imbalances show up as patterns that occur in a response to a mental conflict that you’re trying to resolve.
Perhaps you’ve heard of the book “The Body Keeps The Score” or maybe you’ve explored Louise Hay’s work on what different symptoms mean emotionally in the body.
Either way, you as a human have an interesting way of taking what you process emotionally and stuffing it down into your nervous system aka the Vagus nerve for safe keeping.
Unfortunately, all this emotion stuffing ends up blocking chakras.
Chakra blocking also occurs with repetitive motions, postures, habits, behaviors or routines.
Either way the emotion is the driver of the ion blocking that’s messing with your energetic vibe.
There are 7 Chakras….
- Reproductive/Pelvic plexus – low self esteem, lack of concentration, helplessness, extreme self control
- Adrenal/Lumbar plexus – nervousness, anxiousness, deficiency
- Pancreas – feeling isolated, repressed emotions, unfulfilled desires, frustration
- Heart/Thymus – mental overstrain, deeply hurt, lack of hope, broken-hearted, panic
- Throat/Thyroid – frozen feelings, shock, victimized
- 3rd eye/Hypothalamus/Pituitary – lack of courage, false pride, physical overexertion, restlessness, tension
- Crown (top of the head)/Cerebrum/Pineal Gland – mistrust, materialistic, unable to face reality, judgmental
Each Chakra has emotions associated with it that can clue you into what might be blocking your ions in those regions.
I invite you to take a moment and look at those 7 chakras and the emotions or feelings I outlined that go with them.
Do any resonate with you?
Sometimes you intuitively know what’s blocked while other times it’s subconscious block that is hidden deeper and it’s not yet come to your awareness.
I’ve been geeking out on the subconscious mind for the last few years.
And I noticed that every chakra has the potential to mess with hormones or create symptoms of hormone imbalance.
Whether it’s direct on the reproductive organs, the messaging centers in the brain or impact on the heart and mind, there’s something in each chakra that can be related to what I see in women and men with hormone imbalances.
I’m fascinated by emotions and behavior patterns…
…and why humans have certain hang ups, areas of pain and certain chronic symptoms that don’t respond to treatment or respond for a little bit then don’t.
The deeper layers of helping the body achieve and maintain hormone balance intrigue me.
I suspect there’s a huge energetic connection and that the chakras are part of it.
A few months ago I interviewed Nick Frandsen from Privia Naturals, a homeopathic company from Switzerland.
Intrigued by how he described his homeopathic as “therapy in a bottle”, I thought, what if I paired homeopathic remedies with patient protocols, would I get better results?
As with anything I present to you, I have been testing them out on myself.
It’s been 3 months now and I’ve noticed enough change within me to continue my learning about homeopathy for the subconscious mind.
I’ve been practicing how to muscle test in person and over telehealth to determine an individual’s chakra blockages and mental conflicts.
And I’ve seen some really cool test results come up in my clients.
Enough now that I’m comfortable sharing this new tool I’m adding to my practice with all of you.
I invite you to listen in to my podcast with Nick from Privia Naturals (click HERE) and send a message if you have questions and want to learn more about chakras and energy.
More to come in the future on the intersection of energetics and health!
Here’s to your health,
