Balancing Your Chakras
The word chakra is Sanskrit for "moving wheel." The traditional 7 major chakras are the psychic energy centers located along the spine. They serve as channels, or portals for the universal life force that animates us.
Various life traumas can upset our chakras, causing them to become blocked or damaged. When this happens, it can affect our lives in adverse ways.
Knowing what our chakras are trying to tell us, and following their guidance can help us overcome all kinds of obstacles in life.
For example, if you are experiencing a lack of stability in your life, you will know your root chakra needs help and you'll know that you can benefit from more red in your life. The color stimulates proper movement of the corresponding chakra, allowing it to process your life information the way it was meant to.
Using color is only one way of balancing your chakras. There are also foods you can eat, stones you can wear, essential aromas you can use, even planets you can learn from!
Here is a little quick-reference guide to the chakras and some of their correspondences:
1. Root Chakra - Muladhara (Root Support Center)
2. Sacral Chakra - Svadhisthana (Sweetness)
3. Naval Chakra - Manipura (Wheeled City of Jewels)
4. Heart Chakra - Anahata (Wheel of Unstruck Sound)
5. Throat Chakra - Visshuda (Wheel of Purity)
6. Third Eye Chakra - Ajna (To Perceive)
7. Crown Chakra - Sahasrara - (Thousand-Spoked Wheel)
Any time you notice you are lacking in one of the qualities above or having trouble with one of the body parts, use this information to balance your chakras. As you can see there are many ways to balance your chakras. Try different ways and see what works best for you!
