Is it possible to be born with a chakra open?
I believe it is possible to be born with the chakras open. Some may believe that is our natural state. Just some people has a natural ability to see aura
If you lets say open your 3rd eye, will that set off the balance in your body if its the first chakra you open?
it could be harmful to open the third eye chakra if the rest of you is not ready to recieve the opening. So their is a reasoning for the sequence in which is suggested to for opening your chakras..... Chakra work with an experianced lightworker is very benificial if you've never worked with your chakras before.... Some of your chakra's will most likely be open already once you desire to start opening them, if not all of them being open.... Balancing your chakras should not be confused with opening your chakras though
Is it better to start at the root chakra and work up?
I dont think so, there isn't any set rule of which chakra should be open first..ect You can open your chakras up in any sequence you desire. As long as you hit all your chakras, you can open them in any order you wish. The root crown chakra is usually the the preferred place to start such openings if you're doing a chakra alignment, therefor starting at the base chakra is recomended, because you must go up the line and concentrate on each chakra
Alignment is usually used in achieving a higher state of conscienceness. Once it is achieved it is healthy to let them go back to their natural state. Once you practice and work with your chakras they might stay in closer alignment than they once had, it is like working your muscles, the more you work them, the more natural control and the more fit they are
why aren't all the chakras open at birth?
sometimes they open naturally off and on, They will be open without you knowing it....Stress, lack of sleep, and a trauma is said to close your chakras though, and it is very benificial when this happens to get them back open again. I think our chakras are much like our eyes, they will stay open naturally but may rest at times
I hope this helps ^_^
