What Are Chakras?

Chakras are the centers in your body in which energy flows.

The word “chakra” from Sanskrit translates to “disk” or "wheel” and represents a spiritual energy center within your body.

Originating in India between 1500 and 500 BC, the chakra system corresponds to physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual states of being and impacts all areas of your life.

Within each of the chakras is the ultimate pure healing energy, known as ‘prana’, that keeps your happy, healthy, and vibrantly alive.

The seven chakras are:

Chakra

Emotion

Root

(Base of spine)

Your foundation and feeling of being grounded. Survival issues: food, shelter, money

Your connection and ability to accept new experiences and others. Sense of pleasure, well-being, and abundance

Solar Plexus

Heart

Your ability to love. Love, inner peace, and joy

Throat

Third Eye

If energy is blocked in any one of your seven chakras, it can lead to illness and an unbalanced feeling. Therefore, it’s vital to understand what each chakra represents!

Next, let’s take a closer look at how you can make sure your energy is flowing through your chakras.

How To Balance Chakras

It is believed that when the chakras are aligned and open, your energy is continually free-flowing.

Here is what you can do to keep energy flowing freely through your chakras:

#1. Essential Oils

Each oil resonates at a frequency and can be used to balance chakras by inhaling or applying directly to the skin (with a carrier oil).

    • Root: Clove, cypress, rosemary
    • Sacral: Orange, sandalwood, myrrh
    • Solar Plexus: Lavender, chamomile, lemon
    • Heart: Tarragon, rose, jasmine
    • Throat: Eucalyptus, peppermint
    • Third Eye: Lemongrass, violet
    • Crown: Rosewood

#2. Food

Adjust your diet to take in more food of the same color of the chakra your are wanting to balance:

    • Root: RED
    • Sacral: ORANGE
    • Solar Plexus: YELLOW
    • Heart: GREEN
    • Throat: BLUE
    • Third Eye: INDIGO
    • Crown: VIOLET

#3. Sounds

Each musical note has a frequency that your energy center resonates with. Listen to music, especially classical music, in the following notes to stimulate that specific chakra:

    • Root: C
    • Sacral: D
    • Solar Plexus: E
    • Heart: F
    • Throat: G
    • Third Eye: A
    • Crown: B

#4. Spend Time In Nature

Absorb the healing energy of nature by walking barefoot or sitting in the grass. It will bring more peace into your life and help you feel grounded. Also make sure to add plenty of plants and flowers to your home!

#5. Visualization

Meditation and visualization draw energy from the earth and help cleanse each chakra. It’s a simple, yet powerful, way to balance each energy center in your body.

“Balance is not something you find… it’s something you create.”

Create balance in your life by ensuring your energy is freely flowing through your chakras.
