Hi everyone, I have been AWOL for a little while as I was using all my energy to heal my own cold weather woes, the dreaded lurgey!
So it made me think about balancing myself to be able to get back into helping people again and the best way I find to do this is to balance my Chakras.
The word ‘Chakra’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. If we were able to see Chakras we would observe a wheel of energy continuously revolving or rotating. Each chakra rotates at a different speed and vibration and also relates to different areas in the body and resonates with colour and sound.
One of the reasons that many people fall ill is because their chakras become out of alignment, they are ‘imbalanced’ or there are blockages which restrict the free flow of the body’s energy.
Below is some basic information on the location, colours and effects of the Chakras. They are of course much more complex and the colours can vary greatly.
There are 7 Major Chakras;
The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine (pubic bone) and is red in color. The Root Chakra is associated with physical security and safety, money, basic needs for yourself and loved ones, and self-esteem. Fears or obsessions relating to physical needs and safety can put the Root Chakra out of balance. An unbalanced Root Chakra often manifests as physical problems related to reproductive organs and sexual vitality and problems with the lower back, hips, and legs.
The Sacral Chakra is located just below the naval and is orange in color. The Sacral Chakra is associated with physical pleasures, confidence, addictions, appearance, and relationships with others. Fears or obsessions relating to physical pleasures and what others think of you can put the Sacral Chakra out of balance. An unbalanced Sacral Chakra often manifests as physical problems related to the lymphatic system, lower intestines and digestive system.
Chakra The Solar Plexus Chakra is located just above the naval and is yellow in color. The Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with personal power, and control of yourself or others. Fears or obsessions relating to control and power can put the Solar Plexus Chakra out of balance. An unbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra often manifests as physical problems related to digestive difficulties, liver problems, and food allergies.
The Heart Chakra is located in the middle of the chest and is green in colour although pink is often also associated with the Heart Chakra and the colour I prefer to use. The Heart Chakra is associated with love, relationships, attachments, forgiveness and emotions. Fears or obsessions relating to love and relationships, or the need to forgive others or yourself can put the Heart Chakra out of balance. An unbalanced Heart Chakra often manifests as physical problems related to the heart, circulatory and respiratory system.
The Throat Chakra is located at the throat and is light or dark blue in color. The Throat Chakra is associated with communication and creativity. Fears or obsessions relating to communicating and speaking your truth can put the Throat Chakra out of balance. An unbalanced Throat Chakra often manifests as physical problems related to back pain, ear infections, throat irritations, skin irritations or thyroid problems.
6/Third Eye/Brow Chakra
The Third Eye or Brow Chakra is located on the forehead and is Indigo in colour. The Third Eye Chakra is associated with intuition, dreaming, and beliefs. Fears or obsessions about beliefs or trusting your intuition can put the Third Eye Chakra out of balance. An unbalanced Third Eye Chakra often manifests as physical problems related to headaches, vision or dulled senses.
The Crown Chakra is located on the top of the head and is purple or violet however I have seen it as white or even golden. The Crown Chakra is associated with knowledge, understanding, wisdom and connection to the Source. Fears or obsessions about understanding and compassion can put the Crown Chakra out of balance. An unbalanced Crown Chakra often manifests as physical problems related to our head and nervous system, or as depression or a feeling of lack of purpose. It is important to open this one as it is the Chakra through which you obtain the highest understanding and the highest knowledge.
To help awaken and unblock your Chakras you can use: Meditation, guided visualisation, energy work. I like to use drum healing, crystals and MAP Healing. During any crystal healing session all Chakras should be be open to help them all move freely again.
