According to Terrones, experiencing too much physical or mental stress can cause one or more chakras to be out of balance. A blocked chakra means that energy is stuck or hindered. You could think of it as a blocked artery. For energy and information to flow, the channels through which they flow must be open.
You'll struggle to get to work on time if roads are blocked by traffic. In the same way, chakras cannot function at optimal levels when pathways have blockages. These blocks can be physical, emotional or psychological, spiritual, karmic, or energetic. Some of the most common causes, which create a blocked chakra, are stress and anxiety.
These have a direct influence on our body, creating a tension within the body's tissues, which then restricts the flow of Qi or Prana. Ongoing stress, anxiety, or negative emotions can reduce our mind's ability to peacefully concentrate (meditate) on the movement of energy throughout our body.

If you are out of alignment, your back may feel misaligned. Another way to look at it is, if your spine is misaligned, it could be blocking your chakras.

This is because when one is blocked, the other chakras begin to compensate for it and become hyperactive or underactive. So the best way to start balancing all of your chakras and working toward well-being is to start at the root and work your way up to the crown, one chakra at a time.
When healing the solar plexus chakra, look for yellow foods such as bananas, pineapples and yellow peppers. Each chakra “wheel”, when it rotates correctly, allows Qi energy to flow through it and provides us with good health. Once again, recognize your own chakra before seeing it transmute to match the qualities of the Earth Star. Now you've learned to recognize when one or more of your chakras are blocked, along with some simple solutions to realign them.
Algae, ginseng and wheatgrass are also useful foods for realigning the throat chakra, as well as relaxing teas to drink. It can help you get an idea of how the throat chakra is aligned if you swallow gently at this point. This chakra is blocked because of the lies you may have told, not only to others, but also to yourself, to avoid truths that you would rather not face. To heal the root chakra, include more root vegetables such as beets, carrots, radishes, garlic, onions and parsnips in your diet.
Unlike the other chakras, the crown chakra is often only fully opened through specific yoga or meditation exercises, or at certain times, which is not a skill set you can draw on at any given time. Therefore, we will experience different symptoms, depending on which chakra is unbalanced.
