A short guide to unblocking your Chakras for a better sex life.
The Chakra System
If you have ever been to a yoga class or explored your more spiritual side you may have come across the concept of Chakras. Through this series, we will take a look at the Chakra System and learn more about what it is, what may happen when energetic blockages occur, and various ways to unblock or correct imbalances in order to have a more fulfilling sex life (and experience of life in general).
The chakra system runs along the length of your spine with the first Chakra, your root chakra, at the base and , the crown chakra, your last chakra, at the crown of your head. There are seven energy centers located at various points that are responsible for distributing energy throughout your body. They are named the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, 3rd Eye and Crown Chakras.
Blocked or imbalanced chakras may be having an impact on your relationship to self, quality of life, overall wellbeing or relationship to sex. In the simplest terms a ‘blocked chakra’ would mean that energy within your body is having a difficult time flowing through a particular energy center. It is common for blockages in these areas to occur at various points in life but be assured this is no cause for worry. If your chakras are out of balance there are ways to bring them back into alignment.
The Crown Chakra
The impact of a blocked Crown Chakra can show up in many different ways. A blockage here may lead to an unwillingness to be open to new ideas, thoughts or knowledge. This mindset could prevent you from trying new things related to sex and relationships. This does not automatically mean that if you do not want to try a new thing in bed it is only because your Crown Chakra is blocked, but if you do notice that you are generally feeling blocked to new experiences, and you want to be more open to them, this could be one path to explore. Blockages can occur for different reasons. Stress, illness, emotional upset or conflict could all be factors responsible for energetic imbalances throughout your system.
Learning to listen to your internal world will help you to deepen your self awareness and ability to better communicate your needs to others. Remember, Better Communication, Better Sex. If you feel as if something within you might be a bit out of balance, the first step would be to practice turning your attention inward to learn more. Notice the things that your mind and body are trying to communicate to you.
The Crown Chakra tells us a great deal about the connection we experience to everything around us. What better way to explore this connection than getting into nature and exploring the outdoors. This gives us the chance to feel that we are a part of something bigger. I’d recommend learning about Forest Bathing to understand more about how building a relationship with nature can be part of one’s healing journey. Through movement and meditation you can learn ways to spot and address different energetic blockages within you. If you want to try yoga for this be sure to try postures that are more restorative and allow you to turn your attention inwards.
FUN FACT: Chakrubs , founded by Vanessa Cuccia , are sex toys made from naturally occuring crystals and it is believed that you can balance your chakras by using various types of crystals.

A balanced crown chakra can lead to a feeling of inspiration, serenity and contentment with life. It is important to note that all of your chakras are interconnected. When you balance one chakra it may create changes in another or when one chakra is blocked it may impact others as well. Over time you can learn how to sense inwards to notice subtle changes within. Throughout this series we will take a brief look at each Chakra and learn ways we can invite more balance into our lives.
