What is a Chakra?
Chakras are the energy center or areas of the body dense with energy. It is commonly acquainted with the psychological or energy body, rather than the material or physical body. Apart from that, several of the chakras correspond to areas that have vital organs, such as the heart, brain, and reproductive organs. Here are the 7 main chakras that run along starting from the spine to the crown of your head.
Muladhara (Root Chakra)
Muladhara or the root chakra is the first energy situated at the base of the spine. Conducting the main urges: food, sleep, sex, and self-preservation, it helps us find a feeling of groundedness.
The real challenge comes when this energy is blocked. It will result in agitation and irritability. In the same manner, when there’s an extreme amount of energy at the root, it will trigger your inability to restrain from unnecessary wants and urges.
Svadhistana (Sacral Chakra)
This second chakra is situated in the pelvis. Its function helps us control our emotional urgencies such as sexual energy and unconsciousness. It also governs the adaptability and creativity in this energetic level. People who are caught up in this energy struggles with being emotionally driven or sometimes feel the exact opposite which is feeling numb or out of touch.
Manipura (Navel Chakra)
This Solar Plexus or the third chakra is often known as the power center. This navel chakra is situated in the navel whose function is to shape up your personal power. It musters out and shapes a determined spirit and strength within you. It also provides the confidence you need to fulfill and eradicate the ones that destroy you.
An unbalanced navel chakra triggers low self-esteem and inefficiency to control in any aspect such as temper tantrums and the areas involved around it. This is a common dilemma when the energy current doesn’t flow well.
Anahata (Heart Chakra)
This Heart Chakra or the fourth chakra orchestrates the feeling of love, sympathy, compassion, peace, forgiveness, and acceptance when the energy flow is at its current. This is said to be the base of higher and infinite self on a more spiritual level. An obstruction to this energy level produces the opposing emotions which are anger, jealousy, grief, or self-hatred.
Visuddha (Throat Chakra)
This Throat Chakra, which is the fifth chakra, is associated with speaking one’s truth or expressing one’s self genuinely. When this energy is barred, the fear of being rejected or judged takes over; you feel like your thoughts are distant and making tough decisions becomes quite a challenge.
Ajna (Third Eye Chakra)
This sixth chakra is situated between the eyebrows which resurface more of the visionary realm. The word Ajna was derived from the phrase “beyond wisdom”. Having this chakra opened expands your imaginative experience, clairvoyance, and intuition and touches more on the physical elements. Its energetic function helps you emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Any blockage on this energy level can result in a highly immersed imagination or fantasy. Distraction and lack of focus can also occur.
Sahasrara (Crown Chakra)
The Crown Chakra or the seventh chakra is situated above the crown of the head. This energy links you to the universal energy of pure consciousness. It reaches beyond all elements that are associated with your higher self. When a blockage gets in the way, it may cause emotional distress and isolation. It also ensues lost of interest in goals or dreams and a feeling of disconnection.
