The Fourth Chakra and Breast Health
Chakras refer to the energy centers in our bodies. This concept originated in India between 1500 and 500 BC. The earliest historical evidence of the chakra system is in the Vedas. In the human body, there are seven chakras. These are:
The crown chakra is located on the top of our heads and represents our spiritual connection with other people, ourselves, and the universe.
Third Eye Chakra
The third eye chakra is located on our forehead and is linked with our intuition and imagination.
As the name suggests, the throat chakra is located near our throat and is responsible for controlling our ability to articulate our thoughts.
The heart chakra is located near our heart and is responsible for controlling our ability to show love, compassion, and affection to other beings.
Solar Plexus Chakra
The solar plexus chakra is located in our stomach region and is responsible for our self-confidence and self-esteem.
The sacral chakra is located near our belly button and is responsible for our creative and sexual energy.
The root chakra is located at the root of our spine and is responsible for stability and our sense of security in life.
It is believed that when our chakras are blocked or unbalanced, then we will face issues with the attributes and qualities that are associated with that particular chakra. For example, when the chakras are unbalanced because one of the chakras is overactive then the qualities attributed to that particular chakra will dominate our life, by having emotional and physical effects.
Breast health is connected with the fourth chakra, also known as the heart chakra. The heart chakra can get blocked and become over or underactive when we are fatigued, frustrated, or angry, or when we feel resentful, sad, longingness, and ache for physical contact.
It is believed that women suffer from breast health-related issues and other issues related to the fourth chakra because they put a lot of their emotional and personal needs in order to take care of other people.
You can unblock your fourth chakra and promote healthy breasts by-
You must exercise and move your body in order to relax your muscles and promote a healthy flow of lymph.
Massage isn’t just a way to relax your muscles but it is also a way to heal certain ailments and body parts because they work on energy points that correspond to specific organs. They also contribute to improving the lymph flow in our body.
Bras can cause a lot of discomfort for women because they block the flow of lymph in the breast region as well as the armpits. Rather than wearing a bra at all times during the day, you must loosen your bra or take it off whenever you feel comfortable.
Your breast health can be affected if you hold a lot of resentment within you or feel angry towards people. Doing so can lead to blockages in the energy flow. Therefore, not only should you forgive yourself or make amends for the mistakes you have made in life but also forgive other people who have done the same to you.
The color green is associated with the heart chakra, therefore, you can unblock this chakra by surrounding yourself with the color green whether it is by wearing green clothes or adding more plants to your surroundings.
