 WHEN YOUR THIRD CHAKRA IS BALANCED IT HELPS

  •  With Self-Esteem and security (inner confidence, peace and stability)
  • The more secure you are, the more confident you feel. This allows you to get out of your comfort zone to have new experiences
  • Own your information & trust your gut instincts
  • Not take on invalidation from others
  • Develop self- discipline to stick with something and get good at it

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR THIRD CHAKRA IS BLOCKED

  • You believe that you are powerless & see yourself as a victim
  • You imagine other people think the worst of you and experience doubt, anxiety & mistrust.
  • Fear of failure
  • Overactive ego that leads to power struggles, aggression and domination
  • Very goal driven (define success through accomplishments and accolades)

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR THIRD CHAKRA IS TOO OPEN OR TOO CLOSED

Someone with a tightly closed third chakra (personal power) would be terrified of confrontation, while another who is more open, may thrive on it.

Having a balanced third chakra will allow you to feel good about yourself and get aligned to your life purpose.
