You may be experiencing symptoms of blockages in your energy centers or chakras. Energy centers make up the spirit that is the physical body. If you shine white light through a prism the colors separate into 7 basic colors, same as a rainbow. The spirit is made up of white light and separated out are 7 chakras, represented by 7 colors, and these run down the center of the body.
The red-rey (of light) or red (root) chakra at the base of the spine represents the basic chemical elemental body and comes from the planet we inhabit. A blockage in the red-rey can manifest as ill-health given that there may be a chemical imbalance in the physical body. Lower back pain can be a symptom. Physical healing and earthly grounding in nature are required. A blockage can manifest as difficulty in controlling emotions – feelings of anger, abandonment and despair. These are the most basic of human emotions and once the blockage is removed, emotions of a higher vibrational nature are more able to flow.
You don't always need a spiritual healer or trained Reiki master to unblock your chakras for you. Although these wise healers are undoubtedly invaluable, you can also perform your own healing in terms of the free flowing of energy through your energy centers yourself.
Your chakras and symptoms of blockages are explained in the article 'Blocked Chakras'. The red through violet chakras require free flowing of vital cosmic energy in order to fully balance you as an entity. You are a mind/body/spirit complex. Your spirit resides within and is attached to your earthly body at all times, until it is released up death.
The heart chakra is the chakra of love and understanding. Green ray energy is complete universal love. The Earth itself is moving into the green ray, its own green ray chakra is opening and activating. This is a most important transition for us.
How To Open The Heart Chakra
1. Work on opening the sacral (orange) and solar plexus (yellow) chakras.
The heart chakra is greatly dependent on the state of the yellow and orange chakras.
If we have blockages in the orange chakra, we may encounter problems with the self. For example, if I struggle with my own self-confidence and require healing in that area, I may find it difficult to show love and understanding to others. Therefore, love cannot freely flow with blockages in the orange chakra, potentially suppressing energy flow within the heart chakra. Healing the orange ray is very important for healing the green ray.
