This question often gets asked automatically as part of a greeting when meeting with a friend, loved one or colleagues.
Your response may vary to person to person – yet often you will answer with something that is quite general like “I am fine”; “I am bearing up”; “so-so”; “good thanks”; “overall I am okay” etc.
You can often convince yourself that things are fine when actually they are not!
When you find yourself out of sorts – do you just continue to push or muddle through?
Maybe, telling yourself that those aches and pains, the busy head thoughts will go away if you just ignore them.
I would like to ask you: How are you really feeling today?
Each day in your daily life every interaction and reaction you have impacts on your energy level and your state of being. When your energy is drained or you are in a low vibrational state then your energy field and chakras become stagnated and blocked. This leads to having negative thoughts and emotions, tiredness, depression and ill health.
Your energy is constantly changing its frequency of vibration sometimes being higher and sometimes lower and this is okay as it helps you navigate through life itself. Yet, when your energy remains low over a period of time, you will find that you become overwhelmed easily and have difficulty making small decisions and larger choices become impossible.
You become uninterested in having a good time, mixing with your friends or doing anything creative. Anxiety and stress levels increase and tiredness becomes exhaustion.
Your energy is not limited to your physical body it emanates energy within and outside of your body and is known as an Aura. You are made up of this energy with your physical body being the densest part and, as it expands out wards, it becomes finer and lighter which is not seen by many with the human eye.
Your aura is egg shaped and flows through and around your body. The average healthy balanced aura is equal on each side and, if you were to stretch your arms out either side of your body, it would extend at least 3 to 6 inches beyond the tips of your fingers and at least 3 feet above and below you, with you being within the centre.
Your aura is constantly receiving information from all that is going on around you and only some of this information is filtered through to you. It is like a sieve, sorting through what is important for you as an individual and what is not.
This is then delivered to you through your energy vortexes which are called chakras – could you imagine if you received every piece of information that was around you? It would be complete overload to your physical, mental and emotional systems.
You have seven main chakras and over 200 smaller chakras throughout your body and each main chakra is connected to a layer of energy which surrounds your body.
Your aura, more than any other single human trait, manifests the sum and substance of your existence as an endless life force in the universe. Its vibration is the energy that you emanate throughout space. It is the life force that flows through your entire body and dictates the flow of your life. It determines the events and people that you attract in your life.
When you suffer from stress, have emotional issues or experience trauma, it affects your aura in many different ways. It can become depleted, congested, distorted, and fragile – creating tears in it. Your auric colours which, when you are healthy look clean and bright now become heavy, dirty and murky and all of these changes within your aura over a period of time then manifest into dis-ease or illness within your physical body.
Everything is energy, including your thoughts – positive or negative will affect your energy field either lifting or lowering your vibrational energy.
Have you ever wondered why when your physical body gets dirty, it affects your general sense of well-being?
This is because the dirt you have picked up contains energy too and, depending on where you got it from, can make you feel tired and depleted. If you were to stop your personal hygiene completely, then obviously your body would get dirtier by the day and after a while it would affect you mentally and emotionally. Then as time continued you would also collect bacteria and viruses that create disease and eventually lead to death.
So whether you pick up dirt that is visible or invisible it is all made up of energy that affects your well-being and personal energy field.
When a person takes a First-Aid course, the first thing that they are taught is to STOP THE ACCIDENT!! When there is a car crash on a motorway, the first job is NOT to care for the injured people, but to make sure there will not be another crash causing more injuries.
It is important for you to look after your aura and chakras from negative outside influences so they do not ripple through your energy field to your physical body.
Here are some signs that your energy/auric field and chakras are out of balance:
The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine:
When out of balance you can feel sluggish and stuck in life, often find you’re in a financial crisis and may have feelings of abandonment.
The Sacral Chakra is located just below the belly button:
When out of balance you can have trouble with intimacy and making love, view yourself in a negative way and lack connection with others and are often are abused by others.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is located below the breastbone in between your lower ribs:
When out of balance you can feel that you are a victim of the world’s circumstances, easily give in to the demands of others and be unable to focus on your own dreams and passions, continually seeking the approval of others.
The Heart Chakra is located at the centre of the chest:
When out of balance you are not able to love fully, become afraid of commitment to yourself and others, lose the feeling of happiness and joy and start to feel resentful as the sense of purpose and meaning in life disappears.
The Throat Chakra is located in the hollow of the throat:
When out of balance you find it is hard to speak up for yourself, feel frustrated at not being heard and spend time trying to please everybody around you.
The Third Eye Chakra is located between the eyebrows:
When out of balance you can’t sense your intuition, making decisions becomes a daunting task and you can’t hear your inner wisdom. You overthink everything finding yourself continually thinking about the past or the future.
The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head:
When out of balance you will often have headaches and migraines, feel disconnected from the spiritual world and more attracted to the material world, you are unable to feel the guidance of the higher universal energies and become afraid of change – often repeating the same bad decisions over and over again.
All your individual chakras are connected to each other through your auric field and this can lead to multiple blockages within your energy field and physical body.
Each person’s energy flow is completely unique to them depending on their belief systems, the environment and circumstances around them.
When your energy is of a high vibration and flowing easily throughout and around your body then you will have less mental and physical health challenges.
Here are a few positive changes that can happen when your chakras and auric field are flowing effortlessly:
- You stop dwelling on regrets and no longer blame others for your problems
- You avoid falling into the trap of victim mentality and being judgmental to others
- You no longer need to be right all the time and you stop living in fear
- You no longer feel the need to buy things you don’t need and you stop feeling guilty about the choices you make
- You no longer worry too much and resist changes
- You become responsible for your own happiness, your own life, and your choices
By now, you will be beginning to understand that your chakras and your aura are extremely important to your well-being and how and what you want to create in your life.
