physical "symptoms" of chakra clearing

topic posted Sat, June 9, 2007 - 2:44 PM by  Laura/Priti
Namaste everyone,

I haven't posted here before but something arose for me today and I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience.

I have been working on clearing some stuck energy and patterns from my throat chakra and have been noticing certain physcial changes in my body that seem to correspond to this. I developed what looks like acne on my neck and shoulders and a bald spot at the base of my skull. Given the location of these symptoms as well as that of the throat chakra, could the negative energy that is trying to find it's way out of my system be causing this? I know that the energy body and physical body are intimately connected but this is the first time I've really noticed the immediate effect of one on the other. Has anyone else had a similar experience? I'd love to hear about it.

    that sounds pretty strange, but i would guess that it's not a direct affect of clearing your energy. what is likely however, is that you are becomming overly focused on that area and aware that there is something not right with it. i wouldn't want to call it an insecurity about that area, but something along the same lines. i'm absolutely no expert on this but i know i break out like crazy when i get self conscious...and always in the areas of which i am conscious of (not always literally but of the symbolic function which they serve). hope this helps :)

    Namaste, Laura,

    Have you eliminated all potential contact dermatitis culprits, like new shampoo, fabric softener, jewelry, etc.? Are the bumps more like a rash? Is it hot, or does it itch at all? Do you have any other symptoms in the throat area, like sensations of any sort?

    I've developed rashes before at chakra sites. Once after I was initiated by a guru, I got a large, nonitchy rash in the shape of a butterfly across my chest, with the center at the heart chakra. The few times rashes have happened, it was just after adding new breathwork, yoga or meditation. Every time we kickstart our vibration by amping up practices, we increase the power of our internal psychic fire, and we also knock loose more stuff to clear. Both of those things can potentially manifest in the physical body as detox kinds of symptoms.

    Consider also that the skin is the body's largest organ, and it is the backup organ for detoxification. So when the liver and kidneys are overloaded, your body sends toxins out through the skin. So more water and fresh vegetables and fruits might help it along if this is the case.

    Sounds like your inner guidance is pointing you toward a possible cause, so honor that wisdom and try to stay clear and open to receive it. And if it's a rash caused by chakra work, it will likely start going away quickly.

    Good luck with it.

    Namaste, I recently joined the tribe. Yes, you can get physical symptoms from clearing the chakras and energy work. Usually, the clearing will come out though waste, like diarrah or nausea or things can get worse before they get better if the physical body is working on the rebalancing from the energy shifts. Like the gentlemen said, you may have other things going on than just the chakra. Do you have low thyroid? This can cause hair to fall out and acne from hormonal imbalance and the thyroid gland relates to your female organs such as ovaries, located in your second chakra related to emotions, creativity. Throat the 5th chakra is your communication area on all levels. Are you clearing all of your chakras? it is best to work through the whole system to create a flow. You might try to do a gentle detox by using Floressence tea. You can get it a health food stores. Works great and is very gentle for a overall detox of the body to start with. I like to do a clearing visual while in the shower, imaging your under a sacred waterfall of light, and it is clearing the body, the internal body,(muscles, tissues, cells), then mental body, then emotional body and then spiritual body and if you close your eyes and tune in, you will see or feel what is stuck and is releasing down the drain. Let me know if you do that, and how that works for you.
