There exist 7 real energy centres in our body. And to heal and open blockages of these chakra is very much necessary to live through life.
Every single chakra has a position along your spine and it has a endocrine gland and a color that it is associated with.
Your Chakras can be either too blown open, blocked or healthy 🙂 .
Root chakra is all about physical strength and embracing your physical presence in the world. It is strong when we feel strong, energized, grounded and in our physicality. It is a masculine chakra e.i projects force out to the world. Feeds from the 2 feet chakras which blocks due to some bad incidences or trauma which made you feel not safe in you physicality.
Root chakra has adrenaline gland attached to it and is represented by the color red.
To strengthen this chakra try working on having strong legs and embrace your physical sense. With weak root chakra we are caught in a victim mentality. Accept that you can create your life. You need to believe that you have the power to make changes. Root chakra is all about time. All about HERE AND NOW, do not disrespect your time and others. Saying “NO”! and having a strong set of boundaries is very important. You need to understand that you are here for you. You are not here to make others happy. Defend your time, space and energy.
Look! Let go !! Fear of feeling free . You have no clue how much free you can be, you need to let go. Root chakra is the feeling of being here. Conflicts are important and it is healthy to have them when it is sensible, do not ignore them.
Root chakra can store trauma and you need to heal those to unblock. Else you start to numb out, say through use of internet, binge watching, over eating etc. Root Chakra is very much dependent on your work ethic and hence practicing a STRONG WORK ETHIC can heal a lot. You get your attitude of success with an healthy Root Chakra.
Having a strong root chakra means you know where you are going and no one can tell you otherwise. Bruce Lee is the greatest example of people who mastered Root Chakra.
How to heal your ROOK chakra : Exercise more, get real with your self, do not deny your feelings, work your butt off, befriend people with strong work ethic, take care of your physical body and love your BODY.
Sacral chakra is the Ability to attract. It is attached to the sexual glands. Your temporary emotions are affected by Sacral Chakra. You can attract whatever emotions you want to feel. The main strength of sacral chakra comes from having trust, do you have trust in the world?
Being an empath it is easy to feel like what others feel and sometimes you start to pick those emotions as your own. You need to have a clear boundary between your emotion and what is others emotion.
Shame is the worst enemy of sacral chakra. Guilt is still better feeling if you feel guilt about something you can make up for it, but shame takes a lot of effort to go away. Which can only be healed by ruthless self love. You need to full yourself of that emotion.
Desire is a tree of life as they say. Dream and complete yourself with magic. Have it all, put in all you got, Love yourself in the truest of sense.
Sometimes we go through this feel that ‘I do not deserve to feel unless the world approves my feeling’. WHAT !!? Talk to random people and make fun of yourself. Have fun ! You need to see the bigger picture it is not about you and it is never really going to be about you EVER. Get over yourself and love yourself.
The way to practice this chakra is to value fun and prioritize fun.
Solar Plexus Chakra
It is the Seat of your soul, home of your personal power. Do you keep your own promises ? We all talk about making promises to others but what about the promises you make to yourself.
It is associated with the pancreas gland. Which is also the second most neuron active place after brain and so that is where the use of the term Gut feeling. This chakra projects willpower to the universe, how badly do you want something , your relationship, your work ethic, your body, anything!
This chakra is all about WINNING !!! “YES I CAN ! ” and I will show you, cultivate that attitude of success. Rebel for yourself, look inside calm down and focus. Build a healthy ego.
An experiment done on kids where they were given chocolate cookies and veggies along side and asked to not eat the cookies even though they have an option proved that those who did not go for the cookie, later when given a quiz gave up quick, where as those who went straight for the cookie could work hard on the quiz. Which shows willpower is limited and you must use it for the right things.
One can heal and practice the Solar Plexus Chakra by having a strong Value system and practicing Willpower. People who have blocked solar plexus chakra struggle with completing a project they pick up.
Heart chakra is all about love. It is being in Love and harmony no matter what. We tend to believe there is so much power in other skills, but the power of love is what rules them all. Since at the end of the day all we really want and seek for, no matter what we do or how hard we work is LOVE.
This chakra is associated with thymus(greek word that means soul of life) gland.
Along with practicing the art of spreading love it is also very important to learn to receive love. I personally am a very very loving person and I never really have tough time loving even my enemies but when I get a compliment I do not know how to act. I either say something wrong or laugh it out or start questioning the person who gave me a compliment. It is so important to not only be loving but to accept love toward yourself and be completely okay in receiving love.
The color of self love is Pink <3.
The way to heal the Heart chakra is to practice forgiveness in the truest sense, practice love and kindness. Forgiveness does not mean to neglect what is there, the truest meaning of forgiveness is knowing that the other person has hurt you, and you are not mad at them cause you understand that they have their own reasons which you need not know or understand, but they exist and you simply consciously choose to have no grudges what so ever and look for love outside, there are lots of people who need love and who be willing to have you in their life with all due respect.
Just spread love for no reason. Give positive notes to others and pray for them and be nice just because you exist and you believe that random act of kindness has a long way to go.
Sit still and meditate and breath in. Practice Gratitude. Every one has so many things to blame about but what about the things you take for granted like even having a working body. You need fill yourself with gratitude and you will start shining. Let the light in. There is so much to look forward to, so much to learn and so much to give back.
Words. They rule. Use wisely. I cannot list the number of wars that happened mere because of words and what effect they had on the sacral chakra of the person involved.
Connected to thyroid gland and the color is light blue. It is the chakra of expression.
I am personally very upfront person and If I am feeling something I just let it out as an honest conversation. But even though I used to be proud about being so upfront with my emotions its very very very important to have a reality check about what you feel and what impact it can have. And so the most important act that one can do to practice this chakra is being honest to yourself not others. I do not mean in a negative way but being extremely honest can pour you out since not everyone is equally well educated to take in the words as you want them to take and they are not even supposed to.
“Words create reality“. Speak and talk in an active way to yourself. Using words like ” When I become … ” and not “if I become.. ” . Dream and believe and say it out loud.
Third Eye Chakra
Learning is the domain of the third eye. Perception and seeing the details.
Seeing and not just looking.
It is the control centre for your being. Associated with the pineal gland. You can paint your reality with all the colors you want to have and experience.
It is so important to have a check as to what are you letting in your life. Only the finest information should be let into you.
Meditation is the high need of the health of the third eye chakra. Slow down and see. Never rush in anything. Be interested in the details. Never respond quickly. Go deep and think and analyze. The world can stop for your reaction to things but once they are out you cannot undo. That is not under your power.
Related to the world of 7 dimensions. Associated with the Pineal gland, endocrine gland which is believed to be spiritual radio.
To practice this chakra is to be open to intuitions. Learn to surrender. There is a greater power and you need to believe it and feel it and let it guide you to be able to contribute in the slightest of manner and be you without expectations and not be attached to the worldly things because it makes you believe that there are other levels of existence not known to mind.
Be mindful and present, learn to really listen. Universe is subtle you need to pay attention. Pray and believe you are being heard.
Pour out for your wishes with the most honest emotions. Open yourself and let go of your need to control everything, let the guidance from your crown come to you.
You have the strength of the universe. It is with you, for you, to guide you and help you in anything you chose to do with the best of your motives.
So learning about the human body I realize we need not know why we behave a certain way and why we like somethings and not like the other much or the people we are surrounded with, but I believe and have always believed that there is a world much greater, much clearer and much more full of love and simple words.
I always go by the rule that silence is the language of god. If you could listen and believe that he knows what you need to learn and practice and go by and not complain why certain things did not work out or why are you here, YOU CAN SEE PAR THE REAL AND UNREAL. You can be HERE AND NOW ! Just this moment ! and embrace and be truly happy for all those in your life right now and all those who will ever be.
Keep LIVING & THRIVING <3 !
Also I attended proper course to understand the chakras at its best and also to open up my closed or blocked chakras through guided meditation.
