Learn About Your 7 Chakra Cycles — The Map Of Your Life
Just as your physical body, mind and emotions go through cycles of maturity, so does your personal energy field. As a small child, you begin in your first chakra where you learn about yourself and strive to get your basic needs met. If your needs are met appropriately, you begin to feel safe and grounded and connected to your home and family.
Around the age of eight, you move into your second chakra and start to interact with others on a one-to-one level. Your early sexual identity — your understanding of yourself as a particular gender — expands and you find yourself getting crushes and experiencing “puppy love.” You stretch yourself creatively and learn the joy of play and yielding to others.
In your mid-teens, you leave behind the ease of the second chakra and step into your personal power and identity — both of which are aspects of the third chakra. Here, it’s normal for you to begin to define who you really are and what you believe in. You’re more fiery and argumentative and it’s almost a necessity that you contradict the authority figures around you.
In your early 20s, you step into your heart chakra energy and begin to mature. Leaving your teen angst — and the need to define and prove yourself — behind, you start truly appreciating the difference and beauty of the people around you. Your social network expands, and you may also find you seek your beloved during this time, and may even choose to marry.
At the end of your 20s you step into the fifth chakra cycle of honoring your purpose and your personal expression. You feel a need to seek more purpose in your life, to communicate more clearly, and make a difference in the world.
In your late 30s, you step into your intuition and rich, inner world. You start to really appreciate who you are inside and what you know deep down. You actually listen to your hunches and “inner voice,” and your life gets better because of it.
Finally, in your early 40s, you come to the seventh and final chakra cycle. You start seeking divine understanding and step more deeply into spiritual endeavors that lead you to a better understanding of your connection to everything.
At 49 – 50, you experience the biggest energetic shift of your life, as you move from your highest spiritual Chakra Cycle of 7-7 all the way down to your earthiest Chakra Cycle of 1-1. Basically, it’s a big “do over” as you start the whole process again, but this time, with a lot more experience under your belt.
In addition to the seven major chakra cycles described above, you also have minor chakra cycles that are affecting every year of your life. Vicki Howie offers 30-minute Chakra Life Cycle Readings that look at both your major and minor Chakra Life Cycles for this year and the next. You can learn about them here.
