What Are Chakras?

The body is a temple, which means the Earth is one giant sacred planet that nourishes its inhabitants and provides vital resources for continued survival. The Earth may provide for all physical needs, but humans tend to lack spiritual guidance and awakenings are becoming more and more rare. To facilitate your spiritual awakening, you can try balancing your chakras. There are several methods to do this, from meditation to healing crystal necklaces, but this article will explore the basics of the chakra and explain some things, so you can figure out the best balancing option for your chakras.

The 7 chakras are centers within the human body that distribute spiritual power and energy. They are the root, sacral, naval, heart, throat, third eye, and the crown. Each chakra is located in a different part of the body stretching from the base of the spine to the top of the head. They each have a corresponding color, listed in the order above they are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. They also have corresponding Sanskrit names, but those are a little advanced for now.

The chakras are perpetually in motion, but sometimes the chakra centers can be blocked by things such as stress, emotional despair, or the absence of spiritual development. To avoid blockages in chakra, it is imperative to work within yourself and balance your energy. Stones can be used, as well as crystals, reiki, and other forms of healing that restore balance to these energy centers and promote personal growth and prosperity.

There are several other chakras, hundreds along each part of the spinal column and beyond, but the 7 main energy centers are what most beginners focus on. These major spots are the most important part of a balanced chakra, which means a more well-balanced you.
