Are you feeling stuck in the fertility journey equivalent to groundhog day?
Do you feel drained of energy or just “what’s the point”?
Do you want to get your mojo back?!
There may be blockages in your energy centres (chakras) which might be shutting down the flow of energy and making you feel unable to move forward and/or disconnected from yourself and others.
The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit cakra meaning “wheel” or “circle” and they are understood as spinning wheels of energy that keep the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health of the body in balance.
There are seven basic chakras which are aligned from the base of the spine to the top of the head:
- Muladhara or Root Chakra
This centre is located at the base of the spine and is related to survival and security.
- Swadhisthana or Sacral Chakra
This is located in the belly and is related to emotion, creativity, sexuality and reproduction.
- Manipura or Solar Plexus Chakra
This is located at the base of the ribs and is associated with courage, freedom and personal power.
- Anahata or Heart Chakra
This is located to the right of the physical heart and is related to love, compassion and well-being.
- Vishuddha or Throat Chakra
This is located in the throat and is related to speech and self-expression.
- Ajna or the Third Eye Chakra
This is located in the centre of the forehead and is related to intuition and perception.
- Sahasrara or Crown Chakra
This is located at the top of the head and is linked to consciousness and a connection with the divine or ‘other’.
When we are in a healthy state the chakras spin freely and they draw in energy that feeds and sustains us. When something is out of alignment we may experience blocks. So, for example, when you are feeling anxious about something you may feel tightness in your solar plexus as the energy in that chakra contracts or you may feel it in your throat when you have something that you know you want to say but don’t feel able to express it.
The good news is that it is totally possible to rebalance your chakras. You might want to work with a professional who can help you cleanse and restore your system or you might feel able to do this for yourself.
