Did you know, chakra energy can impact relationships? Just as each chakra has its unique energies, the dominant aspects from a blocked or unbalanced chakra can also color a relationship. You have seven major chakras, or energy intersections in your ethereal body that corresponds and communicates with your physical body. Each chakra influences different aspects of your life, including your romantic relationships. From the partner you choose to the persistent or predominant issues you face, your life reflects the condition of your chakra energy.
According to some Eastern traditions, the chakra that is most active or imbalanced in a relationship will dictate the nature of the relationship. If you are in a Root Chakra based relationship, for example, family, money and security issues may always surface.
Couples whose relationship is dominantly influenced by the Root Chakra tend to be highly charged sexually. But, because Root Chakra is also connected with survival, one or both of the couple can tend toward ego based behavior and selfishness. Ego protects our emotions and selfishness protects our needs.
On a soul level, Root Chakra couples are learning about becoming grounded. So, Root Chakra couples tend to be intense with each other, both sexually and emotionally. Unbalanced root chakras can lead to lots of bickering, contradictory feelings and emotional seesawing. One day the couple is madly in love, the next they are threatening to leave. Root Chakra couples who do end up marrying tend to do so out of emotional dependence than out of mature, healthy love. Fear plays a big role in what attracts the Root Chakra couple to each other-fear of being alone, urgency to create a family, and even a misguided hope to fix what went wrong in one’s family of origin.
But, even if your relationship is mired in Root Chakra imbalance, you are not doomed. You absolutely can change your chakra energy! With persistence and support such as life coaching with Ilchi Lee, you can improve your relationship skills and bring your relationship to the point where it is resonating with the energies of the higher chakras.
Here are two exercises you can do with your partner to root out the problem:
• Role Swap – Is one of you taking on an unfair share of the financial responsibilities? Swap financial chores for one month. From bill due dates to online bill pay management, if one partner doesn’t really know what pressures or logistics the other goes through every month, it makes cooperation and sympathy in low supply. Couples initially take on roles that speak to their strengths, but that can quickly turn into one of you over functioning while the other becomes overly dependent.
• Affirmation – Write this affirmation for the Root Chakra on three pieces of paper. “Passion dwells in my heart.” Put one where you both can read it every day, such as the bathroom mirror. Then each of you take one to keep in your wallet or shirt pocket.
