Have you been noticing certain unpleasant situations arising in your life lately? Or, are you experiencing more frustrations and complications with things? Maybe your chakras need some attention. After all, these things tend to happen when the natural flow of energy is blocked- and a blocked chakra could be the culprit.
Let’s talk about what your chakras really are.
They are the seven main energy centers in your body. They affect and are affected by every sense, experience and feeling you have. You know when you have a “gut feeling” about something? That’s one of your chakras! Or when you show love or feel affection for something in your chest? Another chakra. How about when you have to speak in front of a large audience and your throat feels a little tensed up? You guessed it.
The 7 Chakras are:
Root Chakra – This one is about being physically there and feeling comfortable wherever you are. It makes you feel stable and secure. If you’re nervous or scared often, you probably need work on this one.
Sacral Chakra – This one is behind your feelings and sexuality. It will help you be open to intimacy and to be passionate. If you are not very open to people and seems to have a neutral look on your face often, you may have this one closed.
Location: A few inches under your belly button
Solar Plexus Chakra – Also known as the Navel Chakra. The navel chakra is about being in control and having self-esteem and confidence. If you are indecisive or timid, this chakra is probably closed.
Location: Upper abdomen. Right in between your rib cage
Heart Chakra – Love love love. This one helps you to be compassionate and friendly and is very important to having good relationships and interactions with others. Someone with a closed or weak heart chakra will be cold towards others and will not be very close to others.
Throat Chakra – This chakra is about self-expression and creativity. Someone who is able to produce any form of art will have an open throat chakra. It may be closed if you are shy and introverted. Lying causes this chakra to be blocked.
Third Eye Chakra – This is the one that catches most peoples attention because it deals with psychic abilities or “the sixth sense”. It also covers intelligence and observation. If you aren’t very good at thinking for yourself, rely on authorities, or get confused easily, this one probably needs work.
Location: Center of forehead a little above brows
Crown Chakra – The crown chakra helps with wisdom, connection to your higher self, and with being one with the world. If you aren’t aware of some sort of spirituality or seem to lack focus or direction in your life, this is what you should open.
Location: Top of head
