Did you know that there are small chakras located on your knees? These minor chakras are particularly sensitive to certain situations and respond poorly to unproductive energy. When we open the chakras, we are able to cultivate a better flow of Qi (life energy.)
From the Kaballistic viewpoint, these chakras are considered the 12th and 13th chakras and since the coming of the new age, we are now able to access the incredible gifts of these chakras.
Our knees, in general, are physically complex and easily injured. If the energy flow in your knee chakra is “clogged up” you may notice that you are feeling more overbearing than normal or controlling. Your knee chakras can also be used as a tool when you’re in need of surrender. All great spiritual warriors know that there will come a time and times that spiritual surrender is necessary, in order to evolve and transcend to reach higher levels of conscious being.
HERE ARE 5 WAYS TO OPEN THE CHAKRAS ON YOUR KNEE CAPS
1. Be Flexible
The first and most important thing to do for our knees (as far as chakras and energy are concerned), is to be flexible—mentally and emotionally. When life becomes challenging, one of our first lines of defence can be closing down and becoming rigid—and this internal rigidity affects this area’s energy flow.
When you are faced with a challenging situation, it’s very easy to get disconnected from your emotional and spiritual energy. Internally, you feel rigid and tense. It’s very important for your knee chakras that you remain flexible and open to new information and new ways of being during this time. Try breathing and letting go of any pictures, thoughts or beliefs that are counter to this.
2. Go with the flow.
This thought is strongly connected to being flexible, but they’re not entirely the same. There’s being flexible in the sense of allowing yourself to be out of control in situations that you cannot possibly be in charge of—or letting others take the reigns (at least part-time)—and then there’s not always having a plan or an agenda.
As fallible humans, we can—and should—make plans and have goals, but then we have to let life take its course. This means trying to allow the day to unfold organically.
The biggie. The tough one. It’s so important to not let life’s little stresses and worries overwhelm the other wonderful things that we also experience—easier said than done I know. Still, it’s these more minor issues that often take over and destroy our positive sense of self—and, in turn, life.
Meditation is often the only thing that can really bring us back into equilibrium. To open the chakras, we focus on energy flow.
Try this simple one: imagine water washing over you, cleansing you of all your fears and internal struggles. Then picture this soothing stream of water flowing through your knees, washing away your need to control every minor detail of your life. Feel the suppleness and release that radiate from this inner softening.
This particular suggestion really offers insight into the energy of your knees. An online dictionary describes genuflecting as “to bend the knee or touch one knee to the floor in reverence or worship” and “to express a servile attitude.”
Reiki is a great way to get in touch with the full magnitude of this seemingly subtle chakra. This first time I found this powerful energy was in a reiki session. I won’t even try to explain reiki to you, as I know I wouldn’t do it justice. Trust me, though, if you’ve never experienced this form of healing, check it out. Your knees might thank you too.
