You may have heard about the seven main chakras of our body. They form the foundation of the chakra system that governs the flow of energy within and outside our bodies.
However, you may not be aware of the existence of minor chakras like the hand chakra, foot chakra, or ear chakra. Even though not as impactful as the main chakras, the minor chakras also play a role in the energy flow.
Moreover, signs of their blockage can help you identify bodily ailments. The health of the ear chakras can influence overall physical and mental health.
This article offers you a sneak peek into the workings of the ear chakras. You will find here the reasons for blockages in the ear chakras, how to open ear chakras, and ear chakra opening signs.
Some basic facts about ear chakras
Location: On both sides of the head, just above the ears.
Though these form two energy points, they are considered as one as they are interconnected. These energy centers meet in the brow region and are known as ear chakras. Whenever there is blockage or imbalance in the ear chakra, you can feel its effect in the ears and it extends to the forehead and brows.
Function: Besides the typical function of the physical ears, the ear chakras help us to access our power of clairaudience. That is the ability to receive divine guidance using our auditory senses.
This chakra helps us tune in to the Universe and enhances our ability to recognize the guiding and supporting messages from the Universe. It also helps us filter the deceptive messages and untruthful information received by it.
Signs when balanced: You feel a sense of wellbeing of being balanced and connected to the Universe and the world around you. You will be able to understand the obvious and implied meanings of the words reaching you. In other words, you will have the ability to read between lines and hear unspoken words. You are perceptive to physical as well as metaphysical sounds from far and beyond.
Color: Magenta, maroon, or red-blue combinations
Crystals: Labradorite, Selenite, Blue Kyanite, and Celestite
Essential Oils: Lavender oil, frankincense oil, or their blend
Signs of ear chakra blockage or imbalance
Earaches, dizziness, vertigo, and hearing difficulties are the obvious signs of ear chakra blockage. Ear infections and ringing in the ears or tinnitus are also physical symptoms.
The emotional impact of a blocked ear chakra is the misinterpretation of the words of others, getting into verbal spats, negative self-talk, and getting drowned in it.
Besides its role in physical communication, the ear chakras also perform an important function as the receptors of divine communication. The ear pain spiritual meaning translates to nonreceipt of guidance and support from the Universe. You would feel as if your prayers are not being heard or answered.
The reasons for blockage or imbalance in the ear chakras are numerous. Verbal abuse, judgment, criticism, negative self-talk, avoiding unpleasant news, repressed anger as a result of hearing unpleasant things about yourself, and noise pollution.
Why do you need to keep ear chakras open?
The answer to this is fairly obvious from the symptoms listed above. Anyone will find it difficult to function well if they are suffering from the physical and emotional symptoms of blocked ear chakras. Even if the ear chakras are minor energy centers, the impact of their imbalance is widely felt in daily life.
Moreover, your communication channel with the Universe needs to be clear and functioning well so that you can take advantage of the support and guidance from it. Without your spiritual ear in good health, you will feel disoriented and lost. You may even stray off the right path and wander around aimlessly.
How to clear ear chakras?
When the ear chakra is blocked and not in balance, you may have trouble with self-expression and communication.
