Almost anywhere, energy surrounds us. In our daily lives, in our time off, when we feel good and when we feel bad. The cause for all is energy. Throughout the body, these energy centers are called chakras. There are 114 chakras all over, each with distinct lines. They are primarily accountable for our internal energy balance. The term chakra itself originates from Hinduism's philosophical language, Sanskrit, which means wheel or discus. The inner driving force in our body is thus expressed by a chakra, and each of these seven chakras is in control and guides us. Chakras signify an intimate relationship between your mind and your body. People who nurture their chakras and spiritually live their lives are healthier and happier.
Root Chakra or Muladhara. The Muladhara regulates the bonds and sensations of survival, identity, and guardedness of your family members. Your oldest memories, including whether your necessities were fulfilled, are deposited here. You may become vulnerable or have self-destructive habits when blocked or out of control. You feel strong and assured when Muladhara is in harmony, and you can step up and take care of yourself on your own feet.
Sacral or Pelvic Chakra or Svadhisthana. This chakra, which expresses fluidity, imagination, and vitality, correlates with your reproductive and sexual organs. You may take this literally or equate this chakra with whether you feel worthy of a pleasurable, plentiful, creative existence. You may feel emotionally insecure, guilty, or harsh on yourself when it is out of control. You feel imaginative, optimistic, and open to change, like the ocean and its tides, when Svadhisthana is in balance.
Navel Chakra or Manipura. You feel alive and have the self-esteem and confidence to act and be effective when the Manipura is in equilibrium. You lack motivation when it is hindered and feel unstable and stagnant. You will awaken your true personal inner strength and work through your fear of taking chances by working on this chakra.
Heart Chakra or Anahata. Awaken by compassion, grace, and appreciation to the force of unconditional love within you. You become manipulative and emotionally needy when the heart chakra is blocked and can develop unhealthy relationships. For fear of rejection, you may remain isolated as well. You can fix old wounds by reopening your heart, learn to love wholeheartedly, and form meaningful relationships when you activate the Anahata chakra.
Throat Chakra or Vishuddha. You will feel like you cannot find your voice or your reality when Vishuddha is interrupted. You can be too sociable as well and not sensitive to anyone. Your voice travels through space while this chakra is open and activated, to help you express your feelings in safe ways. Without judgment, you have become better at listening to others and respecting their truths.
Third-Eye Chakra or Ajna. This chakra, or sixth sense, relates to your intuition and determines how the rest of the chakras work. You have wisdom when Ajna is running well, and you trust your inner self to face the difficulties and choices of life. You feel close-minded when it is hindered, too attached to reason, untrusting, and pessimistic. Working on the sixth chakra opens your eyes to the greater picture and various viewpoints, and it lets you gain the awareness that normal senses do not see or hear.
Crown Chakra or Sahasrara. The crown chakra relates to the divine world and beauty itself. It allows you to realize who you are outside your physical self, that you have a human experience as a spiritual being. It is not found in the body but floats above the head's crown. You assume joy can only come from outside when this chakra is locked, and you suffer. In any case, focusing on this chakra allows you to feel free.
While each chakra has its unique features, they are all believed to function as a network. That means it affects all the rest if one is out of control. So if you have signs of several blocked chakras, just know that it is perfectly natural, and any effective yoga class or therapist will work to balance all of them at once, creating a clear path from the head to toe for prana to flow.
