Are your chakras out of balance? There are actually signs to alert you they are. First of all, chakras are energy centers of the body. Picture a beautiful, colorful orb of energy that rotates in these centers. There are over 100 chakras throughout the body, but people are most familiar with the 7 main ones: root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown.
Ideally, healthy chakras translate to positive, desirable experiences throughout your life. But it is not uncommon for chakras to become unhealthy.
Sometimes these energy orbs spin too fast or too slow or even in a non-beneficial direction. Sometimes, other energy affects them (think energetic debris) and can even block them. When any of these things happen, issues potentially arise for the mind, body, and/or spirit. When I attend wellness expos, I frequently offer chakra balancing to people who visit my booth. I'm able to identify which of their chakras needs attention and then go over with the individual what kinds of things can happen when that particular chakra is unbalanced. The individual always relates to one or more of the issues we go over. Always. Understanding the correlation between chakras and what we are experiencing can help us tremendously moving forward.
Let's look at possible signs of balanced and unbalanced chakras for each of the main ones. Remember, this does not mean you would experience all of these signs, the following information is simply describing what is possible.

Balancing Your Chakras
Energy healing can be used to help balance your chakras. How your healer approaches this will vary depending on who you are working with. I usually use pendulum dowsing for a quick and gentle shift, and will incorporate aromatherapy if necessary.
Working with an energy healer will take the guesswork out of what you need to work on, but if you are hesitant to consult professional assistance, you can look into guided meditations (check out YouTube), books about chakras, crystals, or aromatherapy to help you. The explanations above can give you an idea of which of your chakras need your attention.
Caring for your chakras is not the only piece of the complex energy puzzle, but anything you do to support your energetic needs is definitely worthwhile.
