How Does Muladhara (Root Chakra) Blockage Lead to Addictions

Although there are various kinds of addictions seen today like sugar addiction, alcohol addiction, electronic gadget addiction, drug addictions, we will see how smoking addictions is caused and what can be done differently. Before we begin to counsel smokers, we must recognize the attitude with which they smoke, and this is a significant factor to motivate them against smoking.  You can understand why quitting smoking is hard for smokers by looking at the pic below.

why quitting smoking is hard

3 Categories of Smokers

1. Dangerous smokers

The first category of individuals who are at a high risk of developing an addiction to smoking and for most of these people, smoking is their sole source of pleasure in life. These individuals have a limited range of activities and interests, making it particularly challenging for them to quit smoking. It is likely that they have a blockage in their muladhara, or root chakra. In order to effectively address their addiction, it is essential to treat the underlying cause of this blockage.

For example - depressed smokers, smokers with terminal illnesses, smokers who are physically disabled and so on.

2. Underprivileged smokers

The second category of smokers consists of individuals who view smoking as one of many pleasures in life, similar to alcohol or other drugs. These individuals are often involved in activities such as selling street drugs or participating in mafia gangs or other illegal things like thefts. This category of smokers has a moderate risk of developing an addiction but they also have other factors in their lives that provide fulfillment. They are also blocked in muladhara or root chakra and have moderate levels of addiction to smoking. However, if they do not make an effort to quit smoking, it is likely that they will eventually transition into the first category of smokers described earlier.

3. Privileged smokers

The final category of smokers finds smoking to be a small pleasure, such as indulging in a smoke during a walk or after certain events like experiencing an orgasm or completing a successful work project. Individuals in this category have the lowest likelihood of developing an addiction, and quitting smoking is relatively easier for them compared to the other categories discussed. These people are likely to be blocked in manipura or solar chakra unlike the previous 2 categories who have muladhara blockage (root chakra).

So broadly speaking the dangerous smokers and underprivileged smokers are the ones to develop serious addiction to smoking overtime and both categories are also having muladhara blockage. Now let’s see the challenges we face when we counsel these 3 different categories of smokers.

Challenges We Face When Counselling 3 Different Categories of Smokers


1. Dangerous smokers

Individuals belonging to the first category often experience fear when seeking counseling from doctors or psychologists, as this fear is interconnected with their underlying muladhara blockage. They are constantly reminded of their compromised health due to their deep-rooted addiction to smoking, which they perceive as their sole source of joy in life. Consequently, they find themselves trapped in a difficult situation. To escape their fear, they choose to discontinue their sessions with the doctor or psychologist, erroneously believing that this will alleviate their concerns. However, this decision does not address their addiction to smoking, which remains unchanged. As a result, traditional addiction counseling methods may not be effective for individuals in this category.

For such people the only way to quit smoking would be to get rid of that underlying fear. This is the reason why I plan to start CHAKRA ANONYMOUS group (similar to alcohol anonymous) in 2024. Interested candidates can enroll in the discussion without revealing their true identity to others and can still be part of my life changing chakra discussions. As a moderator I will be allowing each participant to showcase their struggles with their addictions and how they can get to the root cause of their fear first before addressing the smoking addiction.

2. Underprivileged smokers

Second type of smokers, who are involved in activities such as selling drugs, participating in mafia operations, or engaging in criminal behavior due to poverty, often exhibit a lack of concern for the emotional aspects of smoking. They are unlikely to seek help or take quitting seriously, often responding with indifference or amusement when confronted about their smoking habit. Changing the behavior of these individuals can indeed be extremely challenging. However, I agree that education, awareness, and the widespread implementation of practices like yoga and meditation can play a crucial role in preventing the rise of smoking among underprivileged populations. By addressing the underlying causes of their circumstances and providing them with tools for self-reflection and personal growth, we can empower these individuals to make positive changes in their lives before attempting to even quit smoking.

3. Privileged smokers

Third type of smokers can be referred to as privileged smokers. They are individuals who smoke during moments of joy, when facing stressful deadlines, during social gatherings, or after experiencing pleasure. These smokers exhibit rajasic qualities, which are characterized by heightened activity and stimulation, increased partying and socializing activities. Most seem educated and motivated to quit. However, as they mature or grow older, they are more likely to quit smoking and remain non-smokers for life. Only a small percentage of these individuals may eventually become addicted and continue smoking. It is important to acknowledge that the cycle of smoking may persist, albeit to a lesser extent, within this group. With proper guidance via chakra healing program or the chakra anonymous program they can easily find a way out of addiction.

This method of removal of addictions can eventually be applied to all kinds of addictions whether sugar, drugs, electronic gadgets and so on. To understand more visit my website or contact me directly at 609-721-0171.
