The chakras are energy centres located in the human body that plays a fundamental role in our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.  Originally derived from Indian spiritual teachings, the chakra system is now popularised all over the world and is an integral part of many holistic health and wellness practices. 

The Seven Chakras

Root Chakra (Muladhara)

The root chakra is the first chakra and it’s located in the lower part of the spine. It’s responsible for our energy associate with fight or flight response. Much like the body has seven main organs, the root chakra corresponds to the feet and legs – it’s essential for movement and balance. The root chakra is also responsible for grounding us and connecting us to the physical world (here and now).

Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana)

The sacral chakra is the second of the seven chakra systems. It’s associated with sensuality, sexuality, and creativity, to name a few. When the energy is balanced in this part of the body, we experience improved relationships with ourselves and the world around us. So, if you’re looking to improve your relationship with yourself, the sacral chakra is a great place to start.

Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)

The energy in the solar plexus, is associated with, self-confidence, power, and control. Balancing this chakra can help improve self-confidence and willpower.  The solar plexus chakra is located above the navel.  

Heart Chakra (Anahata).

The fourth energy centre is the heart chakra, it is the seat of love, compassion, joy, happiness and all emotion associated with love. It’s believed that strong connections to the heart can improve your overall well-being. Balancing the energy in the heart center improves our relationship with others. It helps you feel more connected to others and yourself.

Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)

The Throat Chakra is an essential chakra for a happy and successful life. It is responsible for our ability to communicate, express ourselves and connect with others on a spiritual and emotional level. When balanced, the chakra enables us to voice our opinions, clearly and effectively.  Additionally, it bridges the gap between the physical world and the spiritual (ether).

Third-Eye Chakra (Ajna)

The sixth chakra, the third eye, is of particular importance as it is known for its spiritual benefits and connection to intuition and spiritual awareness. When this chakra is open, we are more in tune with our intuition and spiritual wisdom. As a result, we can see beyond the physical world and achieve a level of creativity not possible before. Additionally, the third eye is associated with the power of concentration and focus, which makes it an asset for those who want to stay on top of their game.

Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)

The crown chakra is the seventh and final chakra and is responsible for developing self-awareness and owning our authentic power source. Its benefits include increased creativity, a strengthened sense of intuition, and improved mental clarity. In order to open up to the crown chakra, we must be willing to let go of the negative thoughts that hinder our growth and focus on self-love and compassion. By doing so, we’re paving the way for increased success in all areas of our lives.
