Ways To Maintain, Clear and Activate Your Meridians and Chakras
Think of Meridians as energy highways, carrying the neurons, sensory neurites and electronic impulses throughout our body. The impulses from our brain, our heart and lungs as well as biological process including our neurolymphatic system, our nervous system and our muscular system (just to name a few) are all governed by electrical impulses that carry communication messages between our brains, hearts and body parts. You see a cup on the counter. Your brain fires a neurological electronic impulse that tells your body that you want to pick up the cup. Your nervous system then fires and gets your muscular system in action, extending your arm, opening your hand and then clasping the cup, enabling you to pick it up. We use our meridian pathways every day, for everything without even realizing it.
When Meridians are blocked the energy cannot freely flow through your body. Transmissions and their resulting action, are delayed while your brain and body try to find a new connection for communication.
When your Meridian flow is reduced or obstructed the Meridian alarm points go off inside your body. Alarm points are set locations that when triggered, are tender sensitive spots along that particular Meridian segment. They feel like "lactic acid" build up in a muscle. Alarm points signify that there is an issue along that segment of the Meridian. If the alarm points are not turned off and the Meridian segment remains blocked, it will result in physical ailments developing along that Meridian segment. Eventually over time, those physical ailments will then turn into degeneration and disease. If left unchecked the ailments can become chronic diseases with all sorts of secondary complications.
Maintaining our Meridians is paramount to maintaining good overall physical, emotional and spiritual health. If you can maintain a good energy flow through the Meridians, you can address ailments as they arise before they become diseases.
Blocked or Stalled or Overactive Chakras
When our Chakra energy centers in our body become blocked, stalled or overactive, they literally do not "spin" properly. The Meridians are the energy highways, but the Chakras are your energy centers that the Meridians run through to recharge their energy flow. When a Chakra becomes under active, meaning it is turning extremely slowly or not at all, the energy flow is severely impacted. They may become over active, meaning they are spinning at a high rate of speed causing the person a lot of distress, agitation and upset.
When the Chakras are clear and aligned; and the Meridians are active, running in the right direction and have clear energy flow, the body is in a place where it can heal itself.
So which Chakras and Meridians govern the healing of various ailments?
Which Ailments Are Caused By Blocked Meridians?
Which Meridians can help to heal my ailments you ask?
All of them, depending on what the ailment is, how blocked the Meridians are and how active the body’s energy flow is. Each Meridian is associated with relieving symptoms from different conditions associated with muscles, organs or biological systems linked to that segment of that specific Meridian. As you have already learned, Meridians segments run through your body carrying the energy your body needs, uses and discards for healing and maintaining itself.
Here are lists of ailments and their associated Meridian. If you find an ailment on this list, you would want to work on that specific Meridian. You would work on activating it, stimulating the energy flow through the blocked area and then balance the associated Meridian to relieve the symptoms and/or the ailment itself.

Which Ailments Are Caused By Blocked Chakras?
Chakra clearing is super important not only to ensure the energy is running up from the earth, grounding you and straight out your head; but also to ensure there are no energy blocks that could result in physical ailments if left untreated.
Aligning, clearing and connecting all of your chakras is important. Working on just one chakra isn't really addressing the entire chakra misalignment. Sometimes when you only work on one chakra (ie: the Root) what it does is it throws the others out of balance due to the renewed energy in your Root chakra and nowhere else.
When having a "Chakra Clearing" or any type of healing work, please ensure that the practitioner is clearing ALL of your Chakras and not just one or two. When time is limited, clearing one or two in a "quickie" clearing will result in more harm than if you used the same limited time to apply energy clearing/ healing to all the chakras. Giving each Chakra 1 min each is better than giving one Chakra 7 mins and leaving the rest. Working on all the Chakras allows for the energy to flow, it allows for any new formed blocks to clear and ensures a clear connection to your higher self and the divine.
