About This Quiz

In a healthy and natural state, energy flows through the body freely from the root chakra to the crown. Over time, and due to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues, this energy can get stuck or blocked. It is when this energy becomes trapped in areas of the body that symptoms begin to manifest. The good news is that you have discovered this quiz, which was designed to isolate the chakra that needs your attention and give you a few tools to get the energy flowing through that chakra once again.

For example, if you have a blocked root chakra, you may very well be experiencing pain or stiffness in your lower back or at the base of your spine. In this case, the energy in your system is stuck at a very fundamental level. You likely find yourself struggling with the core needs of food, shelter, and safety, and no other self-improvement work can take place until you have addressed these fundamental issues. While you may experience symptoms in the upper chakras, we must first take care of the underlying issues before moving on to take care of blockages that may have occurred higher up in the system.

The good news is that the human body is designed to naturally move towards health, healing and wholeness. By simply identifying the problem, your mind and body can begin the work of moving towards a flowing state once again. It's time to move in a new and wonderful direction. Let the healing begin.
