Simple Chakra Empowering Practices To Release Addictions

Our chakra system is the foundation of mind, body, and spirit well-being.

When we experience challenging life circumstances, we often feel we have little control and as a result, are unable to express our deepest needs and feelings. These negative experiences and suppressed emotions are stored within our chakra system, which weakens it and subsequently affects the healthy flow of energy throughout our entire being.

This energy imbalance manifests as feelings of anxiety, irritability, and low mood which we attempt to relieve through external satisfying factors such as food, alcohol, cigarettes, gambling, work, sex, and drugs. These factors cause our chakra energy to become further depleted. We feel a constant sense of emptiness that requires filling, and this leads to addictions.

Depleted energy within our lower chakras is linked to our most common addictions:

  • Depleted root chakra energy is linked to work, gambling, and shopping addictions.
  • Depleted sacral chakra energy is linked to sex and food addictions.
  • Depleted solar plexus chakra energy is linked to alcohol, drug, and caffeine addictions.
  • Depleted heart chakra energy is linked to smoking addictions.
