During my recent Kundalini Yoga classes and Reiki trainings we have delved a little deeper into the chakras and how they work.
Below is little summing up and how they may associate with your current health issues. but lets talk a little more about the chakras first.
Chakras, by definition, are energy centres within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to to the immune system and emotions. Seven chakras are positioned throughout your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, colour, and governs specific functions that help make you human.
We are made of energy. All living things are created by and comprised of energy. The ability of your energy centres to function optimally is what keeps you psychologically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually balanced. The Chakra leads outwards into the aura and so it goes on.
The term chakra is Sanskrit for “wheel.” The chakras are regularly depicted as spinning, coloured wheels of energy. For millennia, chakras have been recognised as essential to life.
Discussions about chakras originate in India around 1,500 B.C. and there is also mention of them in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, dating to circa 200 B.C. However, the West didn’t hear much about chakras until the subject was introduced by Sir John Woodroffe (aka Arthur Avalon) in the early 20th century.
When exploring the chakras, it’s best to start at the beginning. Below is a list of each chakra, starting with the base of the spine and moving up. Given is the chakra name, location, colour, and function.
Root (1st) — Base of the spine; red; governs survival instincts, grounding.
Sacral (2nd) — Lower abdomen; orange; governs sexuality, intuition, self-worth/-esteem.
Solar Plexus (3rd) — Upper abdomen; yellow; governs impulse control, ego.
Heart (4th) — Centre of the chest; green; governs compassion, spirituality.
Throat (5th) — Throat; blue; governs communication, emotion.
Third Eye (6th) — Between the eyes; purple; governs rationality, wisdom, imagination.
Crown (7th) — Top of the head; indigo; governs connection with the Divine.
Anytime a chakra becomes blocked, underactive or overactive, it can throw you off balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
For instance, if you have ever experienced persistent trouble expressing yourself, felt like you’re walking around in an emotional “fog,” or suffered through several bouts of laryngitis or sore throats these are all signs you may have an imbalanced throat chakra.
Generally speaking, when chakras are “off,” the body is excellent about communicating what ones are affected. When you consider all the signs you are experiencing, be they physical or not, odds are they’re centred around the area of the affected chakra.
If you are struggling with your health at the moment then here is a guide to help you find which chakra may be unbalanced. This is only a guide and an invitation to look more deeply into the issues other than the physical.
