Our bodies are constantly trying to stay in balance as if we were sitting on a see saw. Have you ever played the game where you stack little pieces of wood one on top of another? Then you try to pull one back out without it all falling down? Well that is what happens to our bodies when one of our chakras is out of balance.
When we are out of balance, we show symptoms like headaches or an upset stomach. We need to know which Chakras needs to be aligned so we do not collapse or fall off the see-saw as it were. There are seven main chakras. Each one is a circle of energy, representing a nerve center in the body, beginning at the base of our spine right up to the top of our head. Each of the seven main chakras contain bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual elements.
The Chakras are:
Muladhara, Svadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha, Ajna, Sahaswara.
Each one is associated with a color. Think of this color as you balance your Chakras.
The first three chakras, starting at the base of the spine are chakras of matter because they are more physical in nature.
First Chakra: The Muladhara is the chakra of stability, security, and our basic needs. It covers the first three vertebrae, the bladder, and the colon. When in balance we feel safe and fearless.
Second Chakra: The Svadhisthana chakra is our creativity and sexual center. It is located above the pubic bone, below the navel.
Third Chakra: The Manipura chakra means lustrous gem and it’s the area from the navel to the breastbone. The third chakra is our source of personal power.
The Fourth Chakra: The Anahata chakra is in the middle connecting the first three (matter) chakras to the upper three (spirit) chakras. This is our heart chakra, our source of love and connection.
Fifth Chakra: The Vishuddha chakra is located in the area of the throat. This is our source of verbal expression and the ability to speak our highest truth. The fifth chakra includes the neck, thyroid, and parathyroid glands, jaw, mouth, and tongue.
Sixth Chakra: The Ajna chakra is located in between the eyebrows. It is also referred to as the “third eye” chakra. Ajna is our center of intuition. Focus on opening the sixth chakra will help you hone this ability.
Seventh Chakra: The Sahaswara chakra or the “thousand petal lotus” chakra is located at the crown of the head, aligning all the chakras. This is the chakra of enlightenment and spiritual connection to our higher selves, others, and ultimately, to the divine.
Balancing our chakras helps to keep us emotionally, physically and spiritually strong. I listen to Chakra Balancing by Deepak Chopra, to do this. You can purchase a cd or a download. Just find a quiet place and get comfortable. I try to do this once a week.
