Find Out What You Are Doing That Weakens Your Chakras: Part 1


The Chakras are powerful players in the health of the body and the quality of our life. They are masters at moving energy and act as solar panels to the body. Each of our Chakras is unique and they all have important roles to carry out. Just like any other part of the body, each Chakra is susceptible to malfunction.

Below you will find one state that weakens Chakras 1 through 7. The remaining 5 Chakras are covered in part 2 (click here). (Yes we have 12 Chakras!)

1st Chakra: INSECURITY

2nd Chakra: GUILT

3rd Chakra: SHAME

4th Chakra: LONELINESS

5th Chakra: LIES

6th Chakra: ILLUSIONS

7th Chakra: ATTACHMENTS

What can you do to strengthen your Chakras?

Take a moment and consider all the unconscious programs that are generating these feelings and weakening your Chakras. No matter how clear your conscious intentions are, the unconscious always wins.

1st Chakra: INSECURITY

Consider the possibility that insecurity is a safety mechanism we use to feel accepted and build ourselves up. It feels safe to be insecure because insecurity gets me acceptance and self-worth.

The level of weakness happening in the 1st Chakra is an expression of what is going on in your unconscious mind and a reflection of how you are really feeling deep down in regards to insecurity. Take some time to ponder, consider, and reflect on your thinking. Use these questions to help you get deeper.

Imagine for a moment you were completely and entirely secure….with yourself, within your relationships, with your expression, within your job, with your behaviour, etc. What comes up for you? Will people dislike you if you were comfortable with yourself? Imagine never having an insecure thought about yourself ever again? Does this feel egocentric? Will you be used and taken advantage of if you were stable and secure within your relationship? Does it feel as though you might be blindsided by your partner? Does insecurity protect you from getting hurt then? Will you be ostracized for what you say if you had complete confidence in your opinions? Does second guessing yourself trick you into manipulating another to tell you that you are good enough and worthy? Does feeling insecurity with your job motivate you to work harder? If you were completely secure do you feel you are at risk of becoming complacent and losing your job?

2nd Chakra: GUILT

Guilt and pleasure simply cannot coexist. Yes we often hear people refer to their “guilty pleasures”, but when there is guilt, true pleasure is nowhere to be found. We use guilt to modify our behaviour into what we ‘think’ we should be doing.

The level of weakness happening in the 2nd Chakra is an expression of what is going on in your unconscious mind and a reflection of how you are really feeling deep down in regards to guilt. Take some time to ponder, consider, and reflect on your thinking. Use these questions to help you get deeper.

Consider all the activities you do that feel good - all the things that bring you pleasure. Do you have guilt attached to those things? Why? Do you think that the guilt will regulate you and your behaviour? Like if you didn’t have the guilt you may just take a dive off the deep end and indulge in something so much that you can never come back from it? Haha. Or is the guilt there because you have learned that feeling pleasure is bad - pleasure turns you into a selfish, inconsiderate taker. I wonder what it would take for you to allow yourself to separate guilt and pleasure? I wonder if your behavior would actually change for the worse if you were to find a way to let go of guilt?

3rd Chakra: SHAME

Shame is the rejection or denial of value. Consider the possibility that you fear having value - in other words, it is safer to deny value (in self and others) than it is to embody the power and intensity of value.

The level of weakness happening in the 3rd Chakra is an expression of what is going on in your unconscious mind and a reflection of how you are really feeling deep down in regards to shame. Take some time to ponder, consider, and reflect on your thinking. Use these questions to help you get deeper.

You are not shame. Shame is a feeling, much like anger. Can you consider that what you are believing to be true about yourself, might not be? You are not your behavior. You are love. Focus on the spark of love within you. Beating yourself up and making yourself feel small is not ever going to make you feel better. Instead, how can you fan the flame of this self-love? How can you nurture it, no matter how small it is? Wouldn’t this be more useful than to shame yourself?

I wonder what it would take for you to become comfortable with being valuable? Why is it uncomfortable for you to acknowledge your value? Does it feel as though there is a heavy responsibility that comes with that? Does owning your value and worth bring up feelings of guilt or waste? Do you reject yourself because you are fearful of failure? Are you placing your value on what you do, how smart you are, how much money you make, etc?Can you reflect on the idea that each person has the same amount of life within them and no matter what they accomplish or are capable of - the only real value is life?

4th Chakra: LONELINESS

Consider the possibility that loneliness comes from a deep separation from yourself. One can still be in the company of others and still feel lonely. Maybe loneliness feels safe because closeness is vulnerable and vulnerability is terrifying.

The level of weakness happening in the 4th Chakra is an expression of what is going on in your unconscious mind and a reflection of how you are really feeling deep down in regards to loneliness. Take some time to ponder, consider, and reflect on your thinking. Use these questions to help you get deeper.

Have you allowed yourself to separate from yourself? Where and when in your life did you abandon yourself? Why? Does it feel more comfortable to give yourself away? Do you have fear of being and expressing who you really are? Do you know who you really are? What would it take for you to get to know who you really are? Are you lonely because you have somehow gotten to place where you are harsh, unkind, and hateful towards yourself? Why do you think you have let it get this way? What is it that you are trying to accomplish? Imagine how you would feel about yourself if you were able to be kind, caring, and non-judgemental towards yourself?

I wonder if there is a way to be more comfortable with vulnerability? Consider the reasons why vulnerability feels difficult. Does vulnerability mean weakness to you? Do you feel 'exposed' when you drop your walls and experience closeness with another? Could it be possible that your fear vulnerability because you are stuck in judgement (of yourself and others)?

5th Chakra: LIES

The need to lie stems from an urge to protect. What is being protected varies from person to person.

The level of weakness happening in the 5th Chakra is an expression of what is going on in your unconscious mind and a reflection of how you are really feeling deep down in regards to lies. Take some time to ponder, consider, and reflect on your thinking. Use these questions to help you get deeper.

Reflect on your urges to lie. Do you know what you are protecting yourself from? Is it the fear of feeling shame? Do you have trouble withstanding others opinions of you? If you don’t lie does it feel as though you are risking rejection or isolation? Is your lying coming from the need to protect your material interests? Are you lying in the hopes to get the love and attention you crave? Do your lies stem from the impulse to protect the loss of resources, including your energy?

Now let’s consider the lies you are telling yourself? Can you acknowledge (and bring to awareness) ways in which you are lying to yourself? Then can you identify what you are attempting to protect with those lies?

6th Chakra: ILLUSIONS

Illusions are the beliefs and experiences we hold as truths so we can feel comfortable and in control of the world around us.

The level of weakness happening in the 6th Chakra is an expression of what is going on in your unconscious mind and a reflection of how you are really feeling deep down in regards to illusions. Take some time to ponder, consider, and reflect on your thinking. Use these questions to help you get deeper.

Reflect on the degree to which you allow yourself to experience life beyond the physical senses? What is stopping you from taking this further? Do you have trouble trusting your experience? Do you have fear around looking foolish? Or is it that you have a fear of the unknown? I wonder what your life would be like if you were able to expand your experience of life beyond your beliefs and illusions? I wonder what it would take for you to become aware of the beliefs that are holding you hostage in your perspective? Do you think you could let go just for a moment to consider other ways of experiencing the world around you and the world within you?

7th Chakra: ATTACHMENTS

The type of attachments we are speaking of here is where your sense of purpose and well-being is attached to your possessions and relationships. In other words, there is belief that your possessions and relationships are the key to your happiness. Consider the possibility that it means there is a lack of trust and faith in life. Instead you have to become deeply attached and dependent on your possessions and the people in your life.

The level of weakness happening in the 7th Chakra is an expression of what is going on in your unconscious mind and a reflection of how you are really feeling deep down in regards to attachment. Take some time to ponder, consider, and reflect on your thinking. Use these questions to help you get deeper.

Reflect on the possessions you have. Do you find yourself focusing on what you don't have rather than what you have? Why? What is it about having more that you think will make you feel better? Since you don't acknowledge what you have now, how is it that you will suddenly acknowledge what you gain in the future? Could it be that you are simply addicted to the idea of accumulating? Does it give you a sense of purpose? What if there was no such thing as purpose or meaning? Is that a scary thought for you?

How can you accept your divine nature? Are you interested in exploring higher states of consciousness? What would that look like? Are you comfortable with your spirituality? What does spirituality mean to you? Are you limiting yourself in any way with this definition?
