Alcohol disrupts the harmony between the chakras and meridians

The more you become aware of the effects alcohol has on your physical self, the more your consciousness makes this a reality for you. Because of this imbalance, you can notice stronger headaches, aches and pains and a general low energy. This may also trickle into your mental state bringing up negative thoughts, behaviour and swinging moods.

The aura is vulnerable to negative energy

Auras are very sensitive depending on our emotional state. When you drink, it is more difficult for your intuitive self to guide you which may leave you open to the energies of other people and other beings. When your inhibitions are lowered from alcohol you allow your energetic body to be influenced.  Places like bars and clubs don’t particularly carry high vibrations or vibrational beings.

Drink responsibly, don’t drink and drive and if you suspect to have an addiction to alcohol get help. First port of call National Helpline: 0861 HELP AA (435-722).
