Chakras aren’t very common knowledge to most people. I know every time I talk about them, people never have a clue what I’m saying lol. Just like yoga and meditation, the chakras first came to us from India. They teach that the chakras are these energy vortexes in our bodies that align down our spine. Each chakra relates to a different part of your body and mind. The energy that theses vortexes suck in can either block your chakra or heal it, depending on the energy your have allowed near you.
A chakra that I know I have blocked is my throat chakra. Don’t worry I’ll explain the main chakras in more detail below. Anyways, I know my throat chakra is blocked because I can physically feel a heaviness in my throat area and I feel like I haven’t been able to express myself in years. When your throat chakra is unblocked you are able to express your truth and creativity freely. One way that I’m doing to unblock this chakra is by speaking my truth more and more through videos and blog posts. Since the throat chakra has to do with your voice, I always find singing in the shower helps too lol.
Here are the 7 main chakras:
- Root Chakra
The root chakra has to do with feeling grounded. It means you feel safe and secure in the home you are in and the body you are in. This is the base chakra that you must have fully healed in order to be able to fully express yourself in the rest of the chakras.
- Sacral Chakra
This chakra has to do with connecting with others and being secure enough to try new experiences. It is located right below your navel. You’ll feel more comfortable in social situations and be ready to say yes to more adventures!
- Solar Plexus Chakra
This is the third chakra and it has to do will feeling confident. If this chakra is balanced you will feel confident in yourself and your abilities. Your self-esteem will be at a all time high and you’ll be able to accomplish anything you set your mind to.
- Heart Chakra
When the heart chakra is balanced, you will be able to love fully. Not only love yourself, but have healthy loving relationships with others as well. This chakra is located, yes you guessed it, at your heart center.
- Throat Chakra
This chakra I mentioned above, it has to do with you being able to communicate freely. You will be more aligned with your truth and be able to share that with others.
- Third Eye Chakra
This is the sixth chakra and has to do with your ability to tap into your intuition. It is located at your third eye which is a little bit above the in between of your eyes. Being aligned with your intuition is important because you will be able to receive the guidance to live your best life possible for you.
- Crown Chakra
This chakra is located at the top of your head, hence named the crown chakra. When unblocked you will be connected to your higher self and more spiritual then ever. Apparently you will experience pure bliss and who doesn’t want that?
Honestly, I’ve been kind of embarrassed to admit how spiritual I’ve become. I blame this on my throat chakra being blocked lol. But seriously, I felt like I couldn’t share my new love for chakras because people wouldn’t understand or they would think I was weird. Talking about it more though has helped me get over this. I don’t care if people think I’m weird because I’m into things like chakras, chanting mantras and kundalini yoga. These are all just things I love that make me unique. And I’m so happy I’m finally able to share these interests without feeling bad about it.
Anyways, leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts about the chakras? I’d love to know if there are more people out there that are interested in things like me!
