Through a close look on the chakras and its realm, one can get a fair idea about how and why one nourishes oneself and the points where one is starving oneself, either consciously or unconsciously. Read through the post and get acquainted with the various chakras in the form of energy centers:
- First chakra
The energy of the first chakra is in full swing during the period of pregnancy, when one is shouldering the responsibility of creating as well as maintaining the life of two, at one time. In connection to this focus, a considerable change is witnessed in the eating habits.
- Second chakra
The second chakra energy has an underlying motive of learning at length about the world, by making use of the elements such as experience as well as sensation. Toddlers make an excess use of their second chakra in their desire of exploring the world, by crawling around and taking everything in the mouth. For the adults, the most common medium to express the energy is through food. Food will be the apt satisfier for the scenario, when one is hungry, but cannot provide the requisite satisfaction, if the need is for physical intimacy and the individual is trying to justify the satisfaction by popping in the food.
- Third chakra
The third level is associated with the issues in connection with relationships, nurturing, belongingness and power. The choices of food are greatly influenced by the habits of the friends and family. To embrace the power of the energies of the third chakras it becomes of utmost importance to find the set of family and friends who are ready to accept an individual, irrespective of the eating and lifestyle habits. The energies of the third chakras can enter one’s life if one is ready to accept his own authority and power in terms of food habits. If one denies this power, or give the decision making authority to another person, this area will go mundane. The healing process can take place only when one starts believing in one’s own authority and power.
- Fourth chakra

- Fifth chakra
This chakra is closely connected with the second chakra and is based on the ways of expressing the truth of one’s experience. The individuals, who are working with the bulimia, are often seen striking a balance between the second and the fifth chakra. They are slightly more interested in the symbolic messages of food, instead of its nourishment level.
- Sixth chakra
The sixth chakra is embraced with the transformation issue. The power of intuition is at its best here, which is used in making the choices about nourishment which can contribute to the transformation of oneself and others. The intuition can be manifested in dreams in the form of flashes or insights or simply acquiring a deep knowledge. There holds a strong correspondence between the third and sixth chakra.
- Seventh chakra
