The 7 Chakra get imbalanced due to factors like
1: Childhood traumas
2: Physical & emotional injuries
3: Limited belief process
4: Cultural conditioning
5: Restrictive or exhaustive habits
6: Lack of attention
Due to all or several of these factors, we establish chronic ‘repeat’ patterns in our every day living.
These chronic ‘repeat’ patterns can trigger a tension in a specific part of our consciousness and therefore in the Chakra associated with that part of consciousness. The resultant strain is easily detected by the nerves of the associated chakra plexus and communicated to the parts of the body controlled by that chakra plexus.
When the strain continues over a timeframe, or reaches a specific degree of intensity, they generate a symptom on the physical level.
The Seven Chakra imbalance and their related Ailments
Intuitively in harmony, these 7 consciousness centers, due to life factors, can get imbalanced from time to time. It is believed that the imbalances in the seven chakra begin in childhood and the varied social experiences. More often than not, we tend to erroneously attempt to defend ourselves by closing down the relevant consciousness, so that we don’t feel those uncomfortable emotions. The process keeps repeating all our lives and we keep disconnecting from our true self.
Imbalance occurs when there is imbalanced energy flowing through the chakra and by understanding how every chakra influences and affects a body part, function and life issue, it is possible to identify where a chakra is imbalanced and what ailment or illness it is triggering.
