When the energy flow of your mind and body is disrupted, the body produces psychological and physiological symptoms. What may surprise you is that stressful situations, life problems, trauma, and emotional losses can create these types of energetic blocks. By learning how to balance chakras for anxiety, you can restore energy flow in your body to reduce anxiety symptoms.
What Are Chakras?
Before we dive into how to balance chakras for anxiety, you first need to know a little bit about what chakras are. For thousands of years, it’s believed that your body has wheels of energy centers (chakras). These chakras connect to nerve points in the body and affect the endocrine glands and nervous system. Each chakra has its own center that controls different emotions, actions, thoughts, etc. However, it only takes one chakra to be out of balance to throw off the entire energy flow in your system.
The Sanskrit word chakra means disk or wheel, and it’s believed that your body has seven main energy meridians (wheels). Many energy healers have found that when even one chakra is blocked, your body’s energy is unable to flow freely, which causes physical, emotional, and mental symptoms. It’s similar to the feeling of a heartbreak -your heart area feels broken and you can physically feel the symptoms, but your heart is still in one-piece. It’s the energy blockage that’s creating this feeling. This energy block can then lead to other common heartbreak symptoms, such as a lack of appetite, difficulties sleeping, impulsiveness, anxiety, depression, etc. because that one block interrupted the energy flow of your body causing your other chakras to become unbalanced. ,
