To experience health, happiness, and peace, it is essential that your chakras stay active and aligned.
You are negatively affected both emotionally and physically when your chakras do not work together harmoniously.
Let’s discover what chakras are and what you can start doing today to balance your chakras and promote stillness inside of you.
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:
(Base of spine)
|Your foundation and feeling of being grounded.||Survival issues: food, shelter, money
(Lower abdomen: 2 inches above your navel and 2 inches in)
|Your connection and ability to accept new experiences and others.||Sense of pleasure, well-being, and abundance|
(Upper abdomen: stomach)
|Your ability to be in control of your life and confident.||Self-esteem, self-worth, self-confidence|
(Center of chest)
|Your ability to love.||Love, inner peace, and joy|
|Your ability to communicate.||Self-expression, communication of true feelings|
(Between your eyes on the forehead)
|Your ability to see the big picture.||Wisdom, intuition, imagination, and ability to think and make decisions|
(Top of head)
|Your ability to be fully connected spiritually.||Connection to pure bliss, outer and inner beauty, and spirituality|
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, Frankincense
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
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!
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.
