Can gratitude heal your chakras?

The short answer is yes.

Whenever you experience an energetic imbalance due to strong and persistent thoughts and emotions, your body experiences the imbalance, too. The body keeps all the information, such as your persistent negative thoughts and emotions, until you take care of their underlying causes.

Unfortunately, many people focus on addressing their symptoms, rather than treating the root cause of their problems. They medicate themselves until they feel better, like western medicine.

Although it does offer relief, it isn’t long lasting. Unless you take care of the underlying emotional issues, the symptoms will flare up again as the corresponding chakras remain blocked and unbalanced.

Let’s look at the destructive potential of persistent negative thoughts.

If you’ve ever been through a difficult emotional time, such as a relationship ending, loss of a loved one, or bankruptcy, you know exactly how these instances affect your body. You’ll experience a number of physical symptoms, like upset stomach, headache, hot flashes, and muscle tension. You can also suffer from insomnia, indigestion, fatigue, pressure around the heart, difficulty breathing and so much more.

If this is an isolated incident and you are able to bounce back quickly, that’s great. The problem, however, is that life rarely offers isolated incidents. Even your tendency to negatively talk to yourself counts.

The problem starts when the emotional trigger isn’t resolved quickly. As you drown yourself in that situation, stress hormones begin to flood your system and cause actual changes in your DNA. These physical changes correspond to energy blockages within the chakras which, in turn, causes a lot of symptoms.

So, how can you avoid all those things? Start with gratitude.

Gratitude helps you see your problems in a better light. Instead of seeing them as situations you are powerless against, it enables you to see them as learning experiences and growth opportunities.

I realize this can seem far-fetched when you’re in the thick of a struggle, but there is no harm in practicing gratitude. So, what have you got to lose?

Practice gratitude very first thing in the morning, upon waking. Give thanks for the new day, hope and all the things you’ll get to experience. Things like health, friends, family and even your pet are some of the things you should be thankful for.

As an added challenge, in addition to writing down all the things you’re grateful for, you should also express the reason why. This will help you truly feel the power of gratitude.

In addition to the positive things, you should also express thanks for the struggles you are experiencing, like the difficult people who have made life hard for you. Again, express why these difficulties and hurtful people are actually blessings in your life.

It may take some digging and introspection, but there is always a benefit, even if you can’t see it immediately. Other than helping you heal, you can also learn forgiveness and compassion. It will make you tougher and more capable than you ever believed, too.

Just keep digging until you see the benefit. That doesn’t mean you have to like the person or be happy with the situation. You just have to know what’s really causing you troubles so that you can easily get rid of their root cause.
