Recently, my aunt has confirmed a suspicion that I've had: That my Root, Sacral and Navel chakras are closed. My Third Eye is over active.
I have diverticulitis (my aunt said it was associated with navel chakra), practically no sex drive, and it's extremely difficult for me to express needs and desires. Those are only the surface of my problems correlated to the aforementioned chakras, but they're all associated with the closed three. I've been working on opening them, but I'm running into some problems.
Visualization is extremely difficult for me because my mind is rarely quiet (that's also what makes it hard to meet my spirit guide, but that's for another time). I would purchase a sound bowl or crystals, but my family doesn't have the money, and I'm not really allowed to go to those kinds of stores. They're too far away and my dad probably won't approve of me going.
So far, I've been forcing myself to voice my needs and challenging myself to speak up so I can become comfortable with the fact that I have a voice, since I'm extremely soft-spoken. As for the others... I don't really know how to approach those. To nerf my third eye, I've been doing more meditating, but being an empathetic does make it difficult. I go to high school, and I haven't quite nailed shielding myself yet.
I've come to ask for some alternative methods, or maybe hear some practices that you all have used so I can find a way to open the closed chakras and slow down the overactive one to achieve balance.
P.S: My internet has been going in and out lately, so I may not be able to be in the comments as much as I'd like, but rest assured I'll pop in when I can.
