Anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders in the world, but is it possible that anxiety and intuition are just two sides of the same coin?
The Chakras provide a lens through which we can approach our world, our lives, and our healing. Each Chakra represents a domain of life, a facet of the human experience. Whether that is identity and motivation in the Solar Plexus or clear communication in the Throat, the Chakras offer us perspectives through which we can understand what it means to heal.
Because each Chakra represents its own domain, emotions present differently in each Chakra. Things like sadness, anger, and anxiety will manifest differently depending on which Chakra the emotion resonates with. Keep reading for a reference guide on how anxiety and intuition manifest in each Chakra, and be sure to check out our corresponding podcast episode here.
As a species, anxiety is rampant in our lives. While the majority of the human race lives under a veil of chronic stress, anxiety has also proven to be the most common mental health disorders. Spirituality views anxiety as a manifestation of separation, a disconnect from the Divine, and a lack of trust in your own wisdom and ability to be okay.
Intuition, on the other hand, is a state of spiritual connection that occurs when we feel supported by something greater than ourselves and when we are able to tap into that deeper knowledge within our own beings. As we develop the ability to hear and trust our intuitions, we open the door to a deeper connection with our own innate wisdom and guidance.
In this way, anxiety and intuition are two sides of the same coin. Anxiety results from disconnection and a lack of trust, while intuition is a manifestation of trust and connection. The states are commonly thought to be mutually exclusive, meaning you can only exist in either anxiety or intuition, never both at the same time.
However, it is important to remember that although they may be two sides of the same coin, it is possible to experience both at the same time, and to hold the entire coin in your hand rather than focusing on one side at a time. This ultimate state of balance occurs when we are fully acknowledging our state as both human and Divine, and are able to experience transient emotions like anxiety while remaining connected to our deeper understanding that all is well.
