When I created my first dog chakra chart 10-12 years ago no one talked about dog chakras, except as being like human ones. Of course, there were lots of people doing amazing with with dogs and canine chakras, but the internet had not quite become the keeper of all knowledge.
GENERAL CHAKRA OVERVIEW
This will be fast, as this info is easily found, but here is the dash and go overview...
There are seven Chakras roughly along the center of our dog's body that govern how they respond to sensory information, emotional input and their environment on all levels. The three lower chakras (root, sacral and solar plexus) govern basic survival needs. The four upper chakra (heart, throat, third eye and crown) govern their mental abilities.
Note! No one chakra is better or higher or lower than another. The terms lower and upper are literally designations. Balance, balance, balance.
Think of any creature's chakras as a car's systems. A car that is firing on all cylinders/pistons (or whatever makes a car go vroom) will run smoothly. If the car has worn out brakes, a busted carburetor or nasty oil, the car will run roughly, raggedly and inefficiently, if it runs at all.
CANINE CHAKRA SYSTEM BALANCING ACT
When our dogs chakra system is balanced they are content, confident dogs, in harmony with their surroundings and their people. If their system is not balanced it will show up in how our dogs interact with other dogs, the people in their lives and how they react to their environment. Under-active and over-active chakras use the other chakras to have to pick up the chakra slack. This results in an off-balanced state and caused every aspect of your dog's life to be affected to some degree or another.
Think about it...Our dogs are tuned into us on many levels. emotionally, intuitively and physically. If our chakras are out of balance that imbalance can affect our dogs energy system. Just as a nervous owner's fear and stress will travel right down the dog's lead at the dog park or obedience class, so can our chakras affect their chakras. Our off kilter chakras can exaggerate or possibly cause our dogs to have issues! Calm pet owners help make for relaxed pets.
We strive for balanced, harmonious chakras not just for us, but for our dogs and other loved ones - human and animal. Balance within all of our energy systems, human and dog, is what makes it work!
