As an Empath, you will no doubt have heard of the chakras; but you may not know of the importance they play in keeping you happy, healthy and protected from the energy of others.
The chakras are energy centres located along the central energy canal, near the spine, and are in direct correlation with the endocrine system.
Chakras and Their Corresponding Glands
Root or base chakra: adrenals
Sacral chakra: ovaries/testes
Solar plexus chakra: pancreas
Heart chakra: thymus
Throat chakra: thyroid/parathyroids
Third eye chakra: pineal
Crown chakra: pituarity
The word chakra means wheel or circle and can be translated into vortex or whirlpool. The chakras are vortices which controls the energy of the body.
Chakras can be classed as healthy or unhealthy, open, closed, blocked or imbalanced.
If any of the chakras remain permanently open, it can result in physical and energetic vulnerability, and a diminished aura.
A weakened, leaky aura is bad news on many levels for the Empath. It not only allows our energy to leak out but also allows too much energy in, from those we come into contact with.
So, if you are struggling with fatigue, overwhelm and dealing with too much emotional energy, you may have to consider that your chakras are unbalanced and your aura is leaky.
