You hear it everywhere... chakra this... chakra that. “Is your chakra in alignment?” "Maybe your root chakra is off?"
Though it may be easy to get some sort of idea what people are talking about, it took us a much needed break down in order to get a true understanding of what a chakra really is.
Chakras, by definition, are energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all of its processes, from organ function to the immune system and emotions.
Though there are more, we can commonly count 7 chakras positioned throughout the center of your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency that governs specific functions that help make you, well, human. These chakras are also depicted through specific chakra colors.
The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through. Blocked energy in any of our seven chakras is said to often related to illness, so it's important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely.
Here's our quick summary of each center chakra starting from the bottom of our body’s center going up:1. Root Chakra — Represents our foundation and idea of being grounded
So what do you do with all of this information? Start with trying to understand each of your Chakras and then you'll start to recognize how it directly impacts you. With this information, you will be able to proactively fix your energy when you feel off.
For example, if you have a presentation coming up and you want to be able to communicate your thoughts as clearly as possible, you would want to focus on giving your Throat Chakra some love. Look up exercises or meditations that directly relate to the throat. On the day of your presentation, you can then carry Blue Lace Agate in your pocket to give you the correct energy and vibrations for a killer speech (having our Chakra Stone Set handy will also always have you feeling prepared!).
When explaining individual chakras and how they translate in our lives, I think Anodea Judith said it best,
"The word chakra literally means "disk." How fitting that in modern times, disks are the common storage unit of programmed information. We can use this analogy and think of chakras as floppy disks that contain vital programs. (...) The chakra system is an evolutionary program and can be used to reprogram our lives, If we can learn this on an individual level, perhaps we can apply the same methods to our culture and environment."
(Eastern Body Western mind, Anodea Judith)
Trying to understand your individual charkas and examining the health of each center point is a wonderful chance for inner development and self care.
