How The Chakra System Can Influence Our Wellbeing


Whether you believe in it or not, the ancient chakra system can helps us a great deal by directing our focus of attention to different different aspects of our human life. Chakras are perceived as centres of consciousness, located throughout the human spine, and they are thought to have a circular shape. Each one of them is associated with a different spiritual concept or quality, which can in turn be blocked through negative thoughts, emotions, and actions.

Ideally, energy should flow freely through the seven chakras, but if a chakra is blocked for any reason, the flow of energy and the functioning of all remaining chakras are also affected. Each chakra is also associated with a specific set of organs. Therefore, if a chakra is blocked, this is believed to have an impact on the organs regulated by the affected chakra.

Chakras are also linked to different layers of our human energy field, which in turn affects different aspects of our wellbeing. For more information on that, I recommend you to read my post on “The 7 Pillars of Wellbeing“. In this blog post, I will be sharing with you, however, a little bit more of information about each chakra and how you can improve your wellbeing by working through natural healing techniques.


Root Chakra – Order

Did you know that stress, anxiety, and worry block our energy flow, leading to imbalance of mind, body, and spirit? This happens because our root chakra gets clogged. The root chakra is represented by the colour RED and it regulates the following aspects: sexuality, lust, obsession, stability, security, and sensuality. Here are a few natural suggestions to heal your root chakra:

  • To promote healing and awareness, try to: 😄laugh, 🎉 have fun, 🎥 watch a comedy movie or tv show, and 🤓 read a humour book or magazine.

  • You can also work on accepting that we all face difficulties and setbacks. The way we respond to problems determines how we lead our life. Choose to see setbacks as learning opportunities.
  • You can also apply energy healing to yourself by placing one hand on your root chakra and the other on your heart chakra. Keep this position for as long as you intuitively feel necessary.

Sacral Chakra – Will

Thank you – such a lovely post with lots of information I can come back and refer to 💖 Only thing for me is I find it hard to choose which chakra to work on first! xx

    1. I’m happy you liked it, thank you! ♥️ I’ve read that one way to go around that is to pay attention to where it hurts if anything does in the body. Some people can intuitively visualize or feel them in meditation and know their ‘current state’. I think it’s helpful, but to be 100% honest I haven’t disciplined myself enough to see the benefit of healing through the chakras. I believe it helps like yoga, but being on/off doesn’t help the case 😀 xx
