People who suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) often have too much energy in their emotional body and their brain due to the frequent obsessions and compulsions. This causes them to be imbalanced and ungrounded. The areas that are often affected most are the Message Center (heart chakra), heart, spleen, kidneys and brain.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the Message Center and heart connect with the emotions of anxiety, depression and overexcitement. The spleen connects with worry. The kidneys connect with fear.
To be grounded emotionally and mentally is very important in managing and healing the obsessions and compulsions.
The Lower Dan Tian is a foundational energy center that is key to boosting energy, stamina, vitality and immunity. It is key to grounding the emotions and the mind. As with the Kundalini, it is a very important energy center to develop for those who suffer from OCD.
It is best to develop a daily practice that builds the power and abilities of the Lower Dan Tian and Kundalini together. It is recommended that you do Lower Dan Tian and Kundalini practices for fifteen minutes or longer, one to three times per day, for each energy center. If you severely suffer from chronic fatigue or a lack of energy, it is recommended that you do a combination of these practices for two hours or more per day.
