The Chakras

The human body is a complex organism. It is filled with energy that is undeniably strong. Before humanity was apart of the New Age, cultures carried around the idea that every human body carries a life force that is powerful, beautiful, and extremely real. Today, that belief stands strong, and science as well as technology contributes to that belief, and adds a bit more to that truth. 

The human body holds each essence that we are, and each essence carries energy from our feet up into our head. It is a cycling circle. Throughout the body, there are seven chakras. These chakras are seven centers in our body that hold energy and move energy through the many parts of our body, keeping the cycle of energy flowing for our health and wellbeing. 

Our chakras help keep our body, mind, and spirit in balance - it is the natural cycle of life. 

The first chakra is about stability, roots, and day to day living and survival. It is even called the root chakra. It is located at the base of the spine and is the lowest chakra point on your body. When your root chakra is stable, you will feel safe, confident, and secure. The color of this chakra is red. 

The second chakra is your sacral chakra. It is located just above the root chakra and above your belly button. It holds the color orange. This chakra is where your emotions are held, your sexuality is held, and your sense of self remain here. This is where your creativity may stem from as well as your pleasure center. This chakra is extremely important to your well - being. 

The third chakra is your solar plexus and it is just below your heart and above your sacral chakra. It holds the color yellow and is your power center. Anything involving self - esteem, confidence, and personal power lies here. Your wisdom also is held in this chakra. 

The fourth chakra is the heart chakra and is located in your chest, where your heart is. The color of this chakra is green, and it relates to everything involving your heart. Love, compassion, kindness, and truth of whom you are comes from your heart chakra. This chakra will focus on self - love and your love for others.

The fifth chakra is your throat chakra and it is located above your heart. This chakra is all about using your voice and standing up for yourself. It is to speak from your heart and use your words to express yourself. The color of this chakra is blue. 

The sixth chakra is your third eye. It is located on your face, in between your eyebrows. This is where all intuition, psychic, and sensory information comes from. It is bringing in information through the senses, beyond the physical and material world. The pineal gland is located here, as well, where light is held. The color of this chakra is indigo. 

The seventh chakra is your crown chakra. This chakra is a light violet color that is almost white. This is the purest conscious energy there is. This chakra connects you to other realms and is how you bring in your Higher Self into your field. Being balanced in this chakra is about being aligned with Higher Self and the truth of whom you are. 

Keeping our chakras balanced, loved, and confident is important to living a balanced life. Once we feel each center and allow it to guide our lives, we can better heal and grow into our own truth and awareness.
