Knowing if Your Chakras are Blocked

Eastern traditions show that the seven chakras have roots and the roots allow the chakras to be opened and to flow the energy through the body.  You can balance your chakras by meditation or by practicing reiki and this will enhance your energies.

Root Chakra

If your root chakra is blocked you can experience things such as fear, nightmares or anxiety.  You might have back pain and pain in your legs and feet.

Sacral Chakra

When the sacral chakra is blocked it can make you feel unstable and highly emotional.  You may feel depressed and have no desire for sex.

Solar Plexus

When the solar plexus is blocked, chances are you will not make good choices.  You might think badly of who you are and will not feel happy with yourself.  You may experience stomach pain and gas.

Heart Chakra

The heart chakra, when blocked, will cause you to be jealous and have grudges against people.  You might not be able to have peace or to love other people.

Throat Chakra

When the throat chakra is blocked you will have trouble talking to others and will be afraid that other people are judging you.  You may have problems with your thyroid or stiffness in your back and neck.

Third Eye

When your third eye chakra is blocked, chances are you will not hear your intuition or be able to trust your gut.  You might feel that you are not able to dismiss people and their faults, and you might be stressed, anxious and feel depressed.

Crown Chakra

When the crown chakra is blocked, you will feel isolated and depressed.  You will not be able to connect with people and you will have time with spiritual connections.  There are times that you will not be happy, and you will need to meditate to reverse this.


In order to unblock your chakra, you need to meditate each and every day.  Not only can this unblock your chakra, it can also help to keep negative energies away from you which block your chakras.  A mala will help you to focus on meditation and you can use mala beads to keep on you when you are going through life so that you can be safe from all harm.

Remember, having blocked chakras can give you a large range of personal and physical problems.  You need to know and understand each of your chakras so that you can realize which one is blocked and what is causing the blockage.
