What is a Chakra?

Chakras are a part of our anatomy, just like our skin, blood or heart, but they vibrate at a frequency higher than the eye is able to see. It has been said they resemble spinning wheels or spheres of light, or funnel vortices and each Chakra opens to both the front and back of the body. Chakras channel, process, regulate, balance, align and transform physical and metaphysical Energy. Each Chakra resonates to a specific colour, element and sound frequency and each is responsible for the health of different parts of the body. They operate together as a system in conjunction with all our physical systems and processes and are integral to the wellbeing of all aspects of our selves – spiritual, mental, emotional and physical.

A Chakra that is closed, blocked, hyperactive, unbalanced or otherwise out of kilter cannot channel energy properly and this can result in illness or disease; spiritual, emotional or mental disturbance; physical pain, injury (yes, injury) or discomfort. They can be cleared and balanced using a multitude of methods such as colour or sound therapy, crystals, yoga, massage or mindful intent.

You can help balance your Chakras by placing a glass or bottle of spring water on the Chakra Balance coaster of your choice for several hours then drinking the water as needed. The water molecules are charged with the Chakra energy and attune your Chakra’s vibration, bringing it back to centre.

The seven major Chakras located in the body are:

  • Root Chakra (groin)
  • Sacral Chakra (lower abdomen)
  • Solar Plexus Chakra (below the breastbone)
  • Heart Chakra (centre of the chest)
  • Throat Chakra (throat/base of the neck)
  • Third Eye Chakra (centre of the forehead)
  • Crown Chakra (top of the head)

Two other major Chakras located outside of the physical body, but within our energetic field, include:

  • Soul Star Chakra (about 15cm above the crown)
  • Earth Star Chakra (about 30cm below the bottom of the feet but within the auric field).

I will be posting blogs explaining each chakra in more detail.

Excellent explanatory videos have been made by the lovely Vicki Howie of Chakraboosters.com. She is also working on some groundbreaking information in regards to how each year of our life correlates with the development of particular chakras. Check our her youtube channel.
