Do you often feel like you're out of balance? Do you have a lot of energy one day and then feel completely drained the next? If so, your energy centers may be out of balance. There are seven main energy centers in the body, each responsible for a different aspect of our health and well-being. We will discuss the seven energy centers and their benefits for your health.
What Are Chakras
The word Chakra in Sanskrit means "wheel" as well as "circle" and "cycle". It is a spinning wheel of light that constantly moves energy throughout our physical and non-physical structures and thus rejuvenates our life force for us.
This invisible healing energy, called Prana, is vital life force which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive. The main function of the chakras is to absorb this universal energy, metabolize it, and feed the different aspects of the human being.
Since the Chakras are the conduit of our life force, it is essential they remain open, aligned, and fluid. When not balanced, energy cannot flow and our life force will weaken. You will find yourself lethargic, sick, and lack the vitality for life you need. Stress, trauma, negativity, work, and life transitions can all impact your ability to function at your full potential.
These swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers in the body, major organs, as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. They help regulate our emotions, spirituality, and health & each one is attuned to a different frequency. Prolonged energy deficiencies can lead to serious consequences if ignored for too long. Lets explore each of our chakras.
The first energy center is the root chakra. This chakra is located at the base of the spine and is responsible for your feeling of safety and security. When this chakra is balanced, you feel grounded, confident and stable. You feel present in the "here and now" and are connected to your physical body. When it is out of balance, you may feel anxious or fearful.
How to maintain the root chakra in balance:
Eat grounding foods such as root vegetables
If you want to ensure that your root chakra is balanced, eat plenty of grounding foods such as root vegetables. These foods will help you feel more stable and secure.
Get regular exercise
Another great way to keep your root chakra balanced is to exercise regularly. Exercise helps to ground us and makes us feel more connected to our bodies.
Connect with nature
Nature is also a great way to connect with the root chakra. Spend time outside in nature, and you will likely find that your sense of security and stability improves.
The second energy center is the sacral chakra. This chakra is located just below the navel and is responsible for your feelings, creativity, and pleasure. When this chakra is balanced, your feelings flow freely and are expressed without being over-emotional. You are open to intimacy and have no problems dealing with your sexuality. When out of balance, you may feel unemotional or blocked sexually.
How to maintain the sacral chakra in balance:
Express your creativity
One great way to help balance your sacral chakra is to express your creativity. This can be done through painting, writing, dancing, etc. Find an activity you enjoy and make time for it in your schedule.
Connect with your sexuality
It is important to connect with your sexuality to keep your sacral chakra balanced.
Take pleasure in simple things
In addition to expressing your creativity and sexuality, it is important to take pleasure in simple things. This could involve taking a relaxing bath, eating your favorite food, or spending time with people who make you happy.
Solar Plexus Chakra
The third energy center is the solar plexus chakra. This chakra is located just above the navel and is responsible for your sense of power, self esteem, and will. When this chakra is balanced, you feel confident and in control of your life. When it is out of balance, you may feel passive, indecisive, powerless, or lost.
How to maintain the solar plexus chakra in balance:
Build confidence through positive self-talk
Building confidence through positive self-talk is a great way to keep your solar plexus chakra balanced. Every day, take a few minutes to look in the mirror and tell yourself something positive such as "I am strong" or "I am capable." You will begin to feel more confident and start to believe these things about yourself. This will help your solar plexus chakra to become more balanced.
Another great way to keep your solar plexus chakra in balance is to visualize success. See yourself achieving your goals and living the life you want. The more you focus on what you want, the easier it will be to achieve it.
Take action steps towards your goals
In addition to visualizing success, taking action steps towards your goals is important. This could involve anything from planning how you will achieve your goals to taking small actions each day to move you closer to your destination. This will help you feel more in control of your life.
The fourth energy center is the heart chakra. This chakra is located in the center of the chest and is responsible for your ability to love and be loved. When this chakra is balanced, you feel love, kindness, and are compassionate towards others. When it is out of balance, you may feel cold, distant, unloved, or lonely.
How to maintain the heart chakra in balance:
Express your love for others
One great way to balance your heart chakra is to express your love for others. This could involve telling your family and friends how much you love them or doing something special for someone you care about. You will feel more loved by expressing your love, and your heart chakra will become more balanced.
Show compassion for others
Another great way to keep your heart chakra in balance is to show compassion for others. This could involve volunteering for a cause you care about or simply lending a listening ear to someone who needs it. You will feel more connected to others by showing compassion.
Forgive those who have hurt you
In addition to expressing your love and compassion, it is also important to forgive those who have hurt you. This doesn't mean you need to forget what happened, but you should release the anger and resentment you are holding onto. By forgiving those who have hurt you, you will begin to feel more at peace and your heart chakra will open.
The fifth energy center is the throat chakra. This chakra is located in the center of the throat and is responsible for your ability to communicate your needs and wants. When this chakra is balanced, you can express yourself freely and openly. When out of balance, you may have trouble communicating, be shy, introverted, or be afraid to speak up for yourself.
How to maintain the throat chakra in balance:
Express yourself honestly and openly
One great way to keep your throat chakra balanced is to express yourself honestly and openly. This means being authentic in your communication and not holding back. It can be scary to put yourself out there, but by doing so, you will begin to feel more confident and be able to start communicating freely.
Listen to others
Another great way to keep your throat chakra in balance is to listen to others. This doesn't mean you have to agree with everything someone says, but you should try understanding their point of view. You will feel more connected by listening to others and you can offer your advice.
Stand up for yourself
In addition to expressing yourself honestly and listening to others, it is also important to stand up for yourself. This means speaking up when you need or want something and not letting others walk all over you. It can be difficult to do, but by standing up for yourself, you will begin to feel more empowered.
Third Eye Chakra
The sixth energy center is the third eye chakra. This chakra is located in between the eyebrows and is responsible for your ability to see clearly both physically and spiritually. When this chakra is balanced, you have good intuition and can see things as they are. You may have trouble making decisions, thinking for yourself, or seeing the truth when out of balance.
How to maintain the third eye chakra in balance:
Meditating regularly is a great way to keep your third eye chakra balanced. This will help you clear your mind and focus on the present moment. You will begin to feel more centered, relaxed, and able to connect by meditating regularly.
Pay attention to your intuition
Another great way to balance your third eye chakra is to pay attention to your intuition. This means listening to that small voice inside you trying to guide you. It is not easy to hear at times, but by quieting the mind and tuning inward, you will begin to "see" things and be able to make better decisions.
In addition to meditating regularly and paying attention to your intuition, it is also important to question everything. This means not taking things at face value and instead looking deeper. By questioning everything you will see the truth more clearly.
The seventh and final energy center is the crown chakra. This chakra is at the top of the head and is responsible for your connection to the divine. It is about wisdom and being one with the world. When this chakra is balanced, you feel connected to something greater than yourself and experience a sense of peace & bliss. When it is out of balance, you may feel disconnected or lost.
How to maintain the crown chakra in balance:
Connect with nature
Connecting with nature is a great way to keep your crown chakra in balance. This means spending time in nature and grounding with the earth. By doing this, you will feel more tuned to the world around you, to the divine, and your crown chakra will remain open.
Connect with your spirituality
Another great way to keep your crown chakra in balance is to get in touch with your spirituality. This means finding a practice that works for you and tapping into that higher power that exists out there. It can be anything from attending church to meditating to yoga. By focusing on your spirituality you will also feel more at peace and one with source.
Disconnect from technology
In addition to connecting with nature and your spirituality, it is also important to disconnect from technology. This means taking a break from all of your electronic devices and spending some time in silence. By disconnecting from technology, you will feel more connected to yourself, your mind will have a chance to rest, and your crown chakra will become more balanced.
