The following text provides a brief insight into healthy Chakra's and possible effects of imbalances.
Chakra blockages are a common energetic problem. The free flow of energy in and out, plus the flow of energy to other chakras, is impeded. Chakra blockages can have significant impact on your entire energy system. By learning more about this phenomenon, you can achieve a deeper health.
How chakra blockages may manifest in a person's life or physical body.
Someone with a healthy root chakra will usually have a basic sense of security and safety in the world. They will be well- grounded, with "common sense." The practical side of their life will usually function fairly smoothly. They will have a sense of having (or being able to get) enough material resources to meet their needs. They will likely be fairly at ease with their own body, as well as their life. Often, though not always, they will have a relatively healthy physical body, with healthy bones, feet, legs, colon and adrenal glands. Their bowels will function well, and their weight will be in a healthy range.
• If your first chakra is blocked you may experience one or more of the following.
Overly fearful about security and survival, ungrounded, flighty, fearful, feeling of not belonging anywhere, weak constitution; or overly practical, lacking dreams and imagination, plodding, habitual, tied down, difficulty letting go; fear; problems with bones, feet, legs, colon, elimination, weight.
Someone with a healthy sacral chakra will usually be energetic and eager for life; enjoy their sexuality without having it rule them; have a form of creative expression; enjoy art, beauty, and sensory experience; be able to experience joy; experience their emotions without (generally) being overwhelmed by them; be able to be spontaneous and play; be open to change; and have a healthy lower back, reproductive system, and urinary system.
• If your second chakra is blocked you may experience one or more of the following.
Emotionally cold, low-energy, low libido, difficulty changing, difficulty experiencing joy, holds back; or hyper-emotional, overly sexual, overly focused on physical pleasure; guilt; problems with reproductive and urinary systems.
Someone with a healthy solar plexus chakra will usually have a clear sense of who they are and where they're going. They have a strong sense of self-worth and self-trust. Because of this, they are decisive and effective at getting what they want and reaching goals. They have a healthy relationship to power--neither dominating others nor letting themselves be dominated--and use it well, often rising to leadership positions. All of this tends to contribute to an even, sustainable level of physical energy. People with a healthy navel chakra will usually have sound digestive, immune, and muscular systems. They tend to be free of major allergies, hypertension, diabetes, or adrenal gland disorders.
• If your third chakra is blocked you may experience one or more of the following.
Lack of confidence, difficulty manifesting desires, lack of self-esteem; or misuse of power, dominance, over-reliance on will (potentially leading to physical exhaustion); shame; problems with digestion, hypertension, fatigue, adrenals; diabetes, allergies.
Someone with a healthy heart chakra is usually compassionate, able to love deeply, and has a sense of emotional fulfilment. In relationships, they are usually capable of deep intimacy while maintaining healthy personal boundaries. They are kind, forgiving, trusting, and non-judgmental. They may radiate peace. Often they have a strong connection to nature. Whatever their profession, they act as a healing presence. They may have healthy lungs, heart, respiratory & cardiac systems, thymus gland, arms, and hands.
• If your fourth chakra is blocked you may experience one or more of the following.
4th chakra blockage is especially significant because it is in the middle, uniting the upper and lower chakras. Among other things, blockage can manifest as loneliness, lack of emotional fulfilment and difficulty accepting or giving love, lack of compassion; or as unhealthy relationships, "loving too much," love manifesting at a low vibration, or a lack of sense of connection to the divine or to nature; unresolved sorrow; problems with heart or lungs; asthma.
Someone with an ideally healthy throat chakra is usually able to create a distinctive and fulfilling life for themselves. They are very in touch with themselves and what is true for them. They are good listeners as well as effective speakers and/or writers. They are known for honesty and have a knack for getting to the underlying truth of matters. They are often influential or inspirational to others. They usually have rich creative lives, and often pleasing speaking and/or singing voices. They may be musical or poetic. They will usually have healthy necks, shoulders, mouths, ears, noses, sinuses, and thyroid glands.
• If your fifth chakra is blocked you may experience one or more of the following.
Inability to communicate ideas, problems with self-expression (expression of own truth), problems with creativity; or uncontrolled, low-value, inconsistent communication, manipulative, deceptive of self or others; problems with neck, shoulders, thyroid.
Someone with a clear, balanced, and developed third eye/brow chakra usually has a keen intellect balanced with strong intuitive abilities. This might be summed up as "wisdom." They often have a good imagination and can visualize things easily. A strong sixth chakra often confers the ability to "grasp the big picture," as well as that prized but elusive thing called "vision." When the sixth chakra is highly developed, a person will have expanded spiritual awareness and insight, and may be able to perceive and influence non-ordinary planes. Words that might be used to describe a person with a strong, healthy, balanced, clear third eye chakra would include intelligent, intuitive, clear, wise, insightful, and spiritually aware.
• If your sixth chakra is blocked you may experience one or more of the following.
Lack of imagination, lack of vision, lack of concentration, blocked or clouded intuition, can't see "big picture"; or distorted vision, delusional, distorted imagination, misuse of intuition; or overly reliant on logic and intellect; problems with vision, headaches, nightmares.
Someone with a relatively clear, balanced, and developed crown chakra usually considers themselves to be a spiritual (though not necessarily religious) person. They usually spend regular time in prayer, meditation, or other devotions, and enjoy peaceful activities. They have a sense of meaning in life, and feel connected to a higher power or larger purpose, and to the rest of being in general. They may have glimpses of unity-consciousness and spiritual bliss. They radiate good-will and compassionate amusement. They are mentally stable and fairly well grounded, and although they may be indifferent to many social conventions, they still maintain their bodies and at least a few relationships. A person with a highly developed seventh chakra is usually widely recognized as an advanced or enlightened spiritual master or teacher.
• If your seventh chakra is blocked you may experience one or more of the following.
Spacy, ungrounded, impractical, indecisive, difficulty with finishing things, no common sense, depressed, alienated, confused; or cut off from spirituality, plagued by sense of meaninglessness; or grandiose; problems with brain, cognition.
I do not claim this text to be exhaustive. I am quite sure there are many more signs of healthy chakra's and many more symptoms of imbalances than I have shared here.
