The Seven Chakras
If you’re not familiar with chakras, they are the seven main energy sources that run down the center of your body:
- Third Eye
- Solar Plexus
Feel free to read through the infographic above to learn more, or check out this helpful article for beginners. When your chakras are open, positive energy is able to run through your body freely. Open chakras create harmony between your body, mind, & spirit. When your chakras are blocked, closed, or out of balance, you can expect to feel out of balance both physically & mentally.
Opening My Chakras
Growing up, I was raised Catholic. I was baptized, & I attended a private Catholic school from Kindergarten through 8th grade. I was also Confirmed when I was a Sophomore in High School. (Confirmation is the Catholic sacramental practice of reconfirming your baptism. You accept the beliefs you were taught during childhood as a young adult.) Though I wouldn’t call myself religious, nor am I a practicing Catholic, I do pray daily & believe in God.
When I’m struggling, I always rely on my faith to help guide me. Related to my last blog post, when I walked away from the situation in November, my energy & emotions were a mess. To help, I started praying more followed by learning Tarot, doing Yoga, & meditating. I also clearly defined what I wanted to manifest in my life. Every night before bed, I write a list of everything in my life that I’m grateful for. Then, I light a candle, say my manifestations out loud, & pray. I truly believe that God, angels, & my spirit guides gave me the strength to persevere through my circumstances.
As I began to heal, there were times when my chakras would ache & pulse out of nowhere. I felt my Third Eye, Heart, & Solar Plexus chakras the most. Your Third Eye Chakra allows you to see the bigger picture & connects you to intuition. Your Heart Chakra controls your ability to give & receive love. The Solar Plexus Chakra controls your ability to be confident & control your life.
What I Learned
Slowly but surely, I got back on my feet again. People with ill intentions & temptations were thrown my way by the universe, but I have faith that I’m divinely protected. I hope to continue to become a better version of myself because I want to be less triggered, more intuitive, open to love, confident, & in control of my life.
I am no longer repeating my behavioral patterns, & I pay no attention to anyone who isn’t looking for a serious relationship. I’m no longer disappointed or upset by men who cannot live up to my standards. I walk away from men who offer me nothing but false hopes & empty promises. Going forward, I always choose to love myself first & trust in divine timing, knowing that the right person will come into my life to stay.
If you’re feeling out of balance, I thoroughly recommend learning more about the chakras & identifying where energy might be blocked. Meditate, listen to your body, & take the steps you need to open your chakras. Once energy flows freely through you again, the vibes radiating from your Soul will bring you back into harmony: mind, body, & spirit.
