What are chakras all about....?

Chakras - what are they?  They are a big deal, that's what they are!

In Sanskrit (an ancient and classical language of India) they are interpreted as 'wheel' or 'disk' - and refer to energy centres in your body. Each of these energy centres correspond with bundles of nerves and major organs.
In order for your body and mind to be functioning at it's best - your chakras should be open and balanced. If they are blocked or closed, you can experience physical or emotional symptoms.

There are 7 main chakras which run along your spine, starting at your root (base of your spine) all the way to your crown (just above your head). It is believed there are many more minor chakras in your body - over 100 in fact.  However the main 7 are a good place to start.

Starting with your root chakra (base of your spine). This energy centre is associated with your reproductive and sex organs, pelvis, legs and feet. It is responsible for your sense of safety and security. When balanced - you'll feel grounded, assertive, centred and secure. When imbalanced, you could feel anxious, insecure and have self-doubt.

The next chakra is your sacral (just below your belly button). This is associated with your spleen, urinary tract, kidneys, female reproductive organs and blood. This chakra is associated with your desire and sexuality. When balanced, you'll feel passion, creative, independent and satisfied. If unbalanced, you could have a fear of intimacy, sexual issues or feel destructive.

Your solar plexus is the next chakra (naval area). The solar plexus is associated with your digestive system, stomach, liver, small intestine and skin. It is responsible for your personal power and purpose. When this chakra is balanced, you'll feel confident, ambitious and joyful. When imbalanced, you could have low self-esteem, be a perfectionist, critical or over analytical.

Next we have the heart chakra - one of my favourites!  This is associated with your lower lung, lymph and immune system, heart and circulatory system. It is responsible for balance and love. When balanced, you'll feel compassionate, loving, empathic and peaceful. When imbalanced, you'll show a lack of empathy, jealousy, feel hateful and could give too much.

Your throat chakra is associated with your throat, neck, thyroid, ears, respiratory system, sinus and teeth. It is responsible for self-expression and healing (so so so important). When balanced, you'll feel expressive, trustworthy, honest and loyal. When imbalanced you could feel quiet, loud, gossip, be a poor listener or secretive.

Next chakra is your third-eye (brow/forehead). For me, this chakra is one that is helping guide me within my business - and 'lights' up like a Christmas tree when I meditate! It is associated with your pituitary gland, brain, nervous system, pineal gland and eyes. It is responsible for your intuition (YES!!) and imagination. When balanced you'll feel intuitive, faithful, have clarity and be imaginative. When imbalanced you could feel a lack of focus and judgement, be obsessive, have delusions and a poor imagination.

The final main chakra is the crown (top of head). This is associated with your head, central nervous system, cerebral cortex and upper spine. It is responsible for your spirituality and your bliss. When balanced you'll feel connected, wise and have universal love. When imbalanced you'll feel disconnected, have a lack of faith, feel angry and ungrounded.

Now that's a lot, I know. It all just makes so much sense to me. 

How do you get your chakras 'checked'? Reiki! Reiki can release blockages by shifting energy. Your chakras don't work alone - they need each other to help your body or mind to function properly. If one chakra is blocked, then the other ones are working over time to restore balance, which then in turn throws them out of whack.

Intrigued? I'd love to help restore balance to your energy.
