What are blocked chakras and how can you remove them?
We asked Psychic Medium David Oliver to explain.
Chakras are points in the body that are known to tangibly interact with energy known as Ki, which translates as “universal life energy.” Ki energy flows through all living things. When Ki flows through chakras it maintains their health and in turn supports the proper function of the areas in which the chakras are positioned.
Blockages can occur in the chakras if external or internal influences create a lack or over abundance of stimulation and experiences.
Blocked Crown Chakra
The crown chakra is violet coloured and is located at the top of the head.
The function of the crown chakra is to enable a connection to spiritual energy and divine universal knowledge.
Blockages can occur in the crown chakra if a person chooses to engage in relationships with others that are not beneficial or fulfilling. They may choose to do this as an attempt to increase their self esteem by believing that they are in a better situation by having this relationship.
A blockage caused by a situation such as this can be removed by only engaging in beneficial and fulfilling relationships and learning to increase self esteem by engaging in constructive experiences. This could include taking classes to further your education or to learn a new skill such as meditation.
Blocked Third Eye Chakra
The third eye chakra is indigo coloured and is in the middle of the forehead just above the eyebrows. It is linked to clear thoughts and seeing beyond the physical world to enable understanding of experiences.
Blockages can occur in the third eye if a person lets their ego dominate their thoughts and actions. This can lead to a lack of true understanding of energy, people, and situations because of an exaggerated belief that there is nothing to be learnt from external sources.
A blockage such as this can be removed by learning to live with compassion and understanding towards external sources and actively paying attention to what information is being conveyed, so that learning can occur, and insight can be gained.
Blocked Throat Chakra
The throat chakra is blue coloured and is located in the throat. It is linked to communication and expression of ideas.
Blockages can occur in the throat chakra if a person chooses not to convey their thoughts, emotions, or opinions verbally. This can lead to a person not believing that they are worthwhile of being heard or payed attention to and choosing to be shy and quiet.
Blockages such as these can be removed by trying to speak and engage with others regularly in an open and honest way with clarity.
Blocked Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is green coloured and is located in the centre of the chest. It is linked to love, compassion, and affection.
Blockages can occur in the heart chakra if a person experiences negativity relating to relationships with others. This can lead to choosing not to engage in further relationships as to be protected from potential negative experiences in the future.
Blockages such as these can be removed by choosing to engage in situations that provide interaction with others that does not require intense personal interactions but demonstrates an element of trust and honesty. This can lead to understanding that a person can be comfortable in these situations and may lead to a desire to create more personal connections with others.
Blocked Solar Plexus Chakra
The solar plexus chakra is yellow coloured and is located in the centre of the body between the chest and abdomen. It is linked to confidence, will power and self-belief.
Blockages can occur in the solar plexus chakra if a person experiences situations that undermine their confidence or negatively affect their self belief. This can lead to a person refusing to engage in situations that require them to demonstrate their skills and abilities because they do not believe in their own capabilities.
Blockages such as these can be removed by having others offer encouragement and support that will help someone to want to engage in activities that enhance their self belief, leading them to be confident enough to demonstrate their skills and abilities to themselves and to others.
Blocked Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is orange coloured and is situated in the lower stomach. It is linked to emotions and related concepts including sensuality and creativity.
Blockages can occur in the sacral chakra if a person does not engage in activities that allow them to openly express their emotions in a sensual way or engage in creative activities that display their thoughts or feelings. This can lead to a person denying themselves of positive emotional experiences or neglecting their emotional needs due to lack of self confidence or emotional maturity due to insufficient experiences to support emotional development.
Blockages such as these can be removed by gaining experiences and support that encourage and nurture emotional development through personal coaching, therapeutic treatments or engaging in activities that allow emotional self expression such as writing, painting or performing arts that may include singing, dancing or playing a musical instrument.
Blocked Root Chakra
The root chakra is red coloured and is situated between the perineum and coccyx. The “root” is believed to be what connects a person to the Earth and helps them to feel grounded. It is linked to trust, fear, and emotional security.
Blockages can occur in the root chakra if a person does not have experiences that allow them to connect with natural environments such as fields or wooded areas where they can come into direct contact with the natural ground.
Blockages such as these can be removed if a person goes to a natural environment and creates connections with the natural elements that surround them. Physically touching and engaging with the ground, plants and trees as well as observing animals and birds helps to focus the attention on the natural creations of the Earth. This experience can also remind the person of their natural self and their personal connections to the Earth that they live on.
Many people suffer from blocked Chakras without even knowing it. Take time to know your own energy, time is a great healer and should be a gift that you give to yourself every day.
