Our dreams often communicate with us in a language filled with enigmatic symbols in hopes we become aware of what is unconscious with us. It often reveals how we truly feel, our true intentions, solutions to problems, and guides us towards our pain so we can properly heal.
After analyzing over 50,000 dreams in my life I noticed a strange pattern unfolding that might be directly linked to our chakras. Chakras refers to the seven main energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks or (sanskrit) “wheel” of energy located from the base of the spine right up to the crown of the head. These chakras centres govern our thinking, feelings, sensations, emotions, perceptions, and intuition.
Chakras In Dreams
You might wonder what do chakras have anything to do with dreaming. Usually a blocked, overactive or imbalanced chakra tends to affect our emotional and physical well-being; an off kiltered chakra might be the culprit behind insomnia, recurring themes, and vivid nightmares. The psyche will attempt to alert the dreamer where this Past Emotional Pain is located by using various different symbols and colors within the vicinity of the chakra. The iconic image of the snake(s) is commonly known to emerge in your dream relating to a blocked or healed chakra. Doors, elevators or windows that open show you that this energy is now flowing.
The energy of the universe opens up to both our physical self and spiritual self once these chakras are aligned. Our sleeps will not only become more peaceful but our dreams become more animated and symbolic. If you are actually Dreaming Of Your Chakras symbolises protection spiritual awakening, or centeredness.
