If you want to open up all your chakras understand that it will not be necessary for you to try to suppress those chakras that are normally more active than others.

Unlike the others it is also relatively easier to open provided you know what to do. This chakra can also be opened from different positions and hence making it more attainable.
Yoga and chakra go together and it is difficult to mention one without at least thinking about the other. Most people agree that yoga is like a shortcut to opening up all your chakras and yogis have little trouble in opening up their chakras especially if they have been doing yoga for a long time. If you want to open you chakra faster and improve the general experience then practicing yoga will be a great idea. Yoga helps you to become more aware of your body which is a key requirement in unlocking your 7 chakras. Yoga is very physically engaging and so it may be very hard for you in the beginning.

You will have to balance your emotions or at least try to if you ever wish to open all your 7 chakras.

You may think that you have perfectly blocked your emotions or anything else that is affecting your mind but it will still be there. To ascertain this, you will take much longer to open your chakras than you usually do and the experience will also feel different. Trying to block your emotions is not a solution, it only appears like one.

Opening chakras involves a lot of mental power and so if your mind is already occupied with other things then you should not expect to open your chakras. If you are unable to deal with the situation or emotion affecting your mind then you should try to let it go. Taking things easy or letting go is very different from blocking the emotion or thought. Blocking is normally pretence that it does not exist which is a negative energy.
