The yogis believe that we have hundreds of chakras, or energy centers, throughout our bodies. There are seven main chakras or centers of energy that start at the tail bone and run up the center of the spine in the shusumna channel. Energy gets "stuck" in this channel and we may become "stuck" as well, physically or even psychically. Blocked energy manifests physically in various illnesses and malfunctions. For example if your navel chakra is blocked you might experience indigestion and tummy aches. Often this blocked energy is related to or directly caused by a deeper psychological cause. If you are not dealing with stress and emotional in-balance this energy may become "stuck" in your abdomen causing feelings of anxiety which often translates to upset tummies and other gastro-intestinal issues.
Relieving stress through physical movement and deep breathing are the first steps, this allows you to unwind so you can begin to focus on what is really happening within. Thinking about what you are really feeling and then defining the root cause of the problem is next. Exploring the reasons for undue stress and anxiety are key to unlocking this energy. Releasing pent up emotions and letting go of repetitive ineffective behavior can free up and unblock your energy. Releasing unproductive, negative patterns of behavior will then help to alleviate your psychic hangover and allow your body to heal.
