Top Foods That Benefit Your Chakras
Food is one of the important needs in everyone’s life. It provides the energy and nutrients, which help your growth and development. But did you know that foods have specific vibrations that correspond to your chakras, therefore helping to raise their vibrations and recharge them.
In this article, I will talk about the foods that benefit your chakras. But first, I want to make sure you have a complete understanding of what exactly are the chakras.
What Are Chakras?
Chakra is a Sanskrit term that means “wheel” or disc” and your chakras are depicted as spinning, colored wheels of energy.
Chakras are energy centers within the human body that helps in regulating all its processes. The energy generated by the chakras is the same energy that electrifies the Universe and keep us alive. The energy of our chakras affects our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Sometimes your chakras become blocked due to stress, negative emotions, or physical problems. And since energy is always moving through your chakras, it is essential that your chakras are open and aligned.
Let’s think of a bathtub drain that is clogged with hair, as an example. Due to the clog, the water in the bath tub will not drain and will back up. And if not fixed, decay, mold, and bacteria, will eventually grow.
If your chakras are blocked the same problems will occur. Because when they are blocked, energy cannot flow, causing problems such as illness, discomfort, and feeling of physically and emotionally drained to occur.
