Hello Beautiful Soul,
This week, we’re going to look at the various different ways that your body releases chakra energy. For the lower chakras, in particular, this means we’re going to look at several forms of release that are considered rude or socially unacceptable.
I think it’s really important we discuss this because chakra energy releasing is a part of the chakra healing process, but often it doesn’t look like something healing – or even something socially acceptable. And acceptance is a key component to healing.
Here are the most common forms of release for each chakra starting and the crown and working our way down to the root.
FORMS OF RELEASE FOR EACH CHAKRA
Crown – Tingling sensation just above the crown of the head – moving upward or downward
Third Eye – Tearing – if emotions are involved, it’s more like “crying” than “tearing” and it means that the sacral chakra is also involved. If the eyes simply water, then it’s a pure third eye chakra release.
Throat – Yawning & Coughing – even faking a yawn (well) will open the throat chakra and draw the brain out of a beta (stress) brain state and into an alpha (trance) brain state. I forgot to note on the video that just as yawning happens when the throat chakra opens easily (and also opens it), coughing happens when it’s blocked (and you’re trying to open it).
Heart – Exhaling – breathing with an emphasis on full exhales is one of the quickest ways to bring you into your heart chakra and create peaceful equilibrium.
Solar Plexus – Burping & Throwing Up – Burping is the lighter release. Anything that doesn’t quite “digest” well – whether it is food or thoughts or feelings – our solar plexus creates gases and sends it back up for release. Throwing up is a more extreme form of release that is featured in most ayahuasca ceremonies. Ayahuasca is a native plant-based drug that causes one to have hallucinatory-type experiences and then (typically) throw up. In the case of throwing up, the solar plexus is rejecting either very harmful or poisonous food or is pushing out old experiences of abuse. When it comes of its own accord, throwing up is a powerful way to get rid of old solar plexus energy and start anew from a place of more personal power.
Sacral – Urinating (& crying when emotions are involved) – The sacral chakra is the water chakra, so it shouldn’t be surprising that urinating is the most common physical way we release sacral energy.
Root – Bowel Movements and farts – Bowel movements are an everyday way that we release and regulate root chakra energy. In fact, one of the more common signs of a weak root chakra is constipation (and conversely, an over-active root can lead to going to the bathroom way too much). Farts are a combination release of both solar plexus and root chakra energy. A fart is simply the grounded flipside to the burp. With a burp, the solar plexus energy is going up and out and with the fart, it is going down and out.
If you’re an empath, keep in mind that you may have a tendency to enact these releases for other people – individually or collectively. I know that when I’m at a group event where we’re doing a lot of healing, I often yawn, tear and urinate frequently. Some of it is for my personal healing, but I’m also aware that some of it is collective.
So the next time these forms of release move through your body, remember that your experiencing a chakra release. Every time we acknowledge our chakras we help to heal and balance them, because our attention literally steers our energy. Focused thought and imagination is what moves energy.
If you’re a coach or healer and you’re going to be doing deep work with clients, you may want to let them know about these forms of release so they’ll feel more comfortable if they should experience any of them — especially the ones that are judged by our culture.
And when they come up for you, can you be non-judgmental and see them as a positive thing?
Have a lovely week!
