Calgon, Take Me Away!

I think my body is trying to tell me something. My back is tight and painful. My stomach reacts after eating anything that is not completely bland. I have headaches and lots of itching. So much itching, in fact, that it causes bruising. For most of December my legs and sides looked like someone was beating me. No lie. The doctor didn't have any ideas but checked some blood work and said everything was normal.


It's manifesting itself physically. Someone mentioned to me the concept of Chakras. I've just started doing some reading but what I've read so far is resonating with me. There are 7 chakras, which are centers of energy. When they are open things are working the way they should be. If they're blocked, well, that's when you begin having problems. I did a test I found online and determined that all of my chakras are blocked, or under-active, with the exception of one.

So how do I open them is the big question? How do I bring my life more in line?

Right now I feel as if I have no voice in how my time is allotted. School takes about 20 hours per week, work is 40 hours. There is almost always 1-2 hours for various doctor appointments and there also has to be time to study. In March I begin my preceptor-ship for my LPN program which entails 24 hours per week for 8-10 weeks while continuing to work full-time. None of this takes into account various other stressors that abound.

I've read a few various ways of unblocking chakras but wonder what's the right way? Is there a right way? Any suggestions?
