Show your Chakras some L.O.V.E.

Our chakras play a major role in our health, vitality, and well being. The health of our chakras affects our relationship with ourselves, others, and the world around us. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning "wheel of life". There are 7 major chakras in our body. (I go into detail about all 7 Chakras on my YouTube channel. You can view my Rock Your Chakras! videos here). They are at points along our spine from the base of the spine all the way up to the crown of our head and each has its own color association. They all govern different areas of our life, body, and human experience. These whirling vortexes of energy are as follows:

  1. Root Chakra - Red
  2. Sacral Chakra - Orange
  3. Solar Plexus Chakra - Yellow
  4. Heart Chakra - Green
  5. Throat Chakra - Blue
  6. Third Eye Chakra - Indigo
  7. Crown Chakra - Purple

Each chakra has it’s own vibration or frequency. The lower chakras (root to solar plexus) have a more dense vibration and the higher chakras (heart to crown) have a higher vibration. Our lower chakras connect us with Mother Earth and nature. Our higher chakras connect us with our Higher Self, Spirit, Universe, and the Divine. The chakras work separately but they also work together as well. They support each other for the highest growth possible. Think of a tree - it needs to have strong roots and a steady foundation to flourish and stand tall!

We need to have a strong foundation before working too much with the higher chakras as their high vibration can sometimes be overwhelming or intense - especially when first starting to work with them. When I first started meditating I would feel sick afterwards because my body wasn't used to such a high vibration. I could feel my soul shaking inside of me - it was awesome and a bit scary at the same time. The more I worked with it and the more I worked with my lower chakras and grounding, the more enriching it became. So in my experience, a strong foundation - as it is with anything else - is very important.

What does it mean to have a blocked/unbalanced chakra?

Since chakras are spinning wheels of light, a wheel can get stuck (blocked chakra), move too slow (unbalanced - not open enough), or move too fast (unbalanced - too open). This can cause an unbalance in our physical bodies and can negatively affect how we interact with the world around us. If unbalanced, the color of that chakra may be dull or not as strong if you look at it clairvoyantly. Now why does this happen? The cause of an unbalanced chakra is often a response to emotional pain, trauma, regrets, fears, worries, etc. The energy is not flowing as it should be. Having a blocked chakra can manifest in our lives in different ways from insecurity and anger to depression and anxiety to hyper-sexuality and co-dependency.

Why should you care about the health of your chakras?

When your chakras are in alignment, here are some things you can experience:

  • Happiness
  • Having more energy
  • Improve how you interact with others
  • Be calmer in stressful situations
  • Helps you to live a more balanced and conscious life
  • An improved and deeper connection to Spirit
  • Most importantly - a deeper knowledge of yourself and your soul!
