Many of the chakra teachers I’ve encountered spend a lot of time on diagnosing and “fixing” blocked chakras. I maintain there is no such thing. If a chakra were entirely blocked, your energy system would shut down completely. Energy doesn’t work that way.
One of the most important things about the chakras, if not the most important, is that they are meant to work together, all together. All the time.
Here is where chakras come from: When a being incarnates, there is a burst of brilliant light. I’d call that The Divine Spark. It animates all your systems. If you’ll view that burst of light, that Divine Spark, through a prism, you will see the eight major chakras.
Instead of beginning with an impossibility — a completed blocked chakra — let’s consider them as under-active, namely, working too hard (and probably compensating for another chakra that’s over-active).
These are broad-brush descriptions of manifestations that ought to make a person or a healing practitioner look at a particular chakra. They are ways to be, do, & have.
The first Red Root Chakra’s Grace is Life. Here are the under-active possibilities:
Accident-prone, Anxiety, Body alienation, Constant moving house, Disconnection, Disorganization, Family issues, Fearful, Feelings that one doesn’t belong [here] or to anything or anyone, Feeling that one doesn’t fit in, Lack of focus, Lack of follow-through,May feel not in control of one’s life, Nervous state, Passivity, Poor boundaries, Self-destructive, Scattered, Sense of unloveableness, Spaciness.
Here’s why knowing these under-active patterns are so valuable: if you see any of these patterns of behavior (not rare instances) in your own life, you can figure out which chakra needs attention for healing, growth, and peace.
Next time you’re struggling in a situation, note your behaviors, and see if that doesn’t help you toward inner peace.
Tomorrow, we’ll continue through the Rainbow with what under-functioning looks like in the second Orange Sacral Chakra.
