Are you looking to unlock your chakras and improve your emotional and physical well-being? The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body, and when they are open, energy can flow freely and create harmony between the physical body, mind, and spirit. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the seven chakras in more depth, as well as tips on how to align them. The Root Chakra, also known as the Mooladhara Chakra in Sanskrit, is the foundation of our relationship with Mother Earth. It is represented by the color red and influences our passion, creativity, youth, vitality, and most importantly, our basic survival instincts.
The Root Chakra is connected to the sense of smell and is attached to the gonads. The Sacral Chakra, or Swadhisthana Chakra, is a symbol of the elements of water present in the human body. It is represented by the color orange and impacts our ability to be happy and cheerful, compassionate, creative, and passionate. It also influences our desires, sexuality, and reproductive functions.
The Solar Plexus Chakra, known as the Manipura Chakra in Sanskrit, roughly translates as “City of Jewels” and is considered one of the most powerful chakras that has profound influences on our personal power. This chakra is represented by the color yellow and symbolizes this energy vortex and its connection with energy, fire, and charge. When this fiery element is present in a harmonious balance, it allows us to be much more energetic, active, confident, communicative with a cheerful disposition that allows us to respect ourselves and others. The solar plexus chakra is connected to our sense of sight and is connected to the adrenal glands. The Heart Chakra, also known as the Anahata Chakra, is associated with the element of air within the body and has the deepest influence on our professional and personal relationships.
This chakra is denoted by the color green and if it is weak or fragile it can ruin our relationships with negative emotions such as jealousy, envy, anger, mistrust, and anger. The Heart Chakra affects our sense of touch and is connected to several glands including the lymphatic and thymus glands. The Third Eye Chakra or Ajna Chakra governs your intuition plus the ability to recognize and take advantage of it. The colors most frequently associated with this chakra are violet, purple, and white as they are colors that are sometimes assigned to things of a divine nature. When this chakra is blocked it can manifest as headaches, vision or concentration problems, hearing problems. The Throat Chakra or Vishuddha Chakra influences communication both verbal and non-verbal.
It is represented by the color blue which symbolizes communication between different levels of consciousness. If you find that you are speaking above others or that you don't speak at all your throat chakra is likely to need some work. The Crown Chakra or Sahasrara Chakra represents our connection with spirituality. It is represented by the color violet which symbolizes enlightenment and spiritual awakening. This chakra is physically located in the head so blockages can manifest as headaches or vision problems. Finally we have the Sacral Chakra or Svadhisthana Chakra which governs emotions and intimacy.
It is represented by the color orange which symbolizes creativity and passion. This chakra has a strong connection with our olfactory sense so if it's blocked it can manifest as a sore throat without any external cause. Therefore it's important to familiarize yourself with each chakra's location in your physical body before embarking on a journey of activating them. Establish your healing intention before meditation and imagine each chakra expanding and opening so that energy can flow freely through them. By understanding each chakra's purpose you will be able to bring more life force energy into your lower dimensions while entering higher realms of existence. Unlocking your seven chakras will help you achieve emotional balance while improving your physical health.
