I've had the same experience, but faster. I stopped eating meat a few weeks ago after some higher realization, gradually letting go dairy and now moreso vegan. I went 2 weeks not drinking and quit smoking, something I used to do a lot. I just don't need them it seems. The other night for the sake of a social life I went out with friends, drank and smoked cigarettes all the while feeling like I was poisoning myself (duuhhh)
I wish I had an aura photo from about a year ago to compare to now. Or even an month ago hahaha.
I don't know about chakras really, but I think its a transition for sure
what makes you think you don't have guides? Sometimes they gently nudge you without making themselves known :)
