30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 5- Chakras

on October 28, 2014

On yesterday’s blog I said I would tell you more about the chakras. So here I am!

What is a ‘Chakra’? They are energy points on the body of spiritual power. They look like spinning wheels or vortexes of energy. There are seven main chakras which are commonly used in healing work, it is said there are many more but that’s much more advanced! So here is a basic run down of the seven chakras, working our way up the body.

The ‘Base’ Chakra- also known as the root. This is at the base of your spine. This chakra is about survival and your most basic needs. It’s also about feeling grounded. If you often feel spacey, chances are this chakra is unbalanced. You can help balance it by doing grounding activities such as gardening or walking in nature and touching the Earth. The colour of the chakra is red.

The ‘Sacral’ chakra is below the belly button and is orange. This chakra is all about sensuality, and pleasure. Not just sexually, but all the things you enjoy doing. If you feel exhausted and don’t give enough time to yourself, this may be out of balance. Always schedule time for yourself!

Next is the ‘Solar Plexus’ chakra which is yellow. This is above the belly button (about two fingers above it) and is all about your personal power. If you let others control you, this can cause an imbalance in this chakra. Try using affirmations to help build up your courage.

In the centre of your chest lies your Heart chakra, which is green, and as you might have guessed is all about love. I often find people are ‘too’ open in this area, as a lot of us tend to give, give, give but not be very good at receiving. To be open, always come from a place of love, and remember to take care of yourself also.

The throat chakra is blue and of course is about communication. If you get lots of sore throats this can be a symptom of a blocked throat chakra, which likely means you aren’t saying things you need to say. Speak your truth!

The third eye is in the middle of the forehead and is purple. This is the spiritual vision chakra. If you’re not very open to any spiritual related things at all this is likely to be blocked. meditation and prayer can help this block.

Finally the crown is at the top of the head and is white. This is your connection with the world and the divine. Feelings of disconnection and despair could relate to a blockage. Prayer, affirmations, and meditation can all help.
