Griefs affects on the Chakras
When someone is in a state of grieving the Heart chakra is the one that is the most impacted. It can affect all of your chakras. They may become imbalanced. Grief is an energy-depleting emotion. This is important to remember because our bodies need the energy to be and stay healthy. We need to derive this energy from different sources such as energy from the foods we consume daily. Energy from keeping our bodies moving. Exercise is an important part. We also derive energy from being outdoors in nature. When we go outdoors barefooted we can bring up energy through our feet and legs into our energy centers raising our vibrations in all our chakras.
When one is grieving if they do not make a conscious effort to replace the energy that grieving uses one is highly likely to start to feel the effects from it in their bodies. Slowing them down. Possible sickness. One’s body, mind, and soul can only undergo this for so long before they feel the effects and become ill, find themselves in physical pain, or weakness in the body. There are also many emotional effects such as anxiety and panic attacks that can occur if one’s energy centers are depleted. It is quite common for one to become ill while grieving.
