Chakras are energy centres in the body that are used in several types of healing. There are seven chakras in the body that start at the feet and progress to the head.
Chakra 1 is the root chakra and comprises the feet, legs and base of the spine. It is represented by the colour red and relates to money, security, safety, survival and being grounded.
Chakra 2 is the sacral chakra and sits in the pelvis and lower abdomen. It is associated with the colour orange and represents our needs, creativity and sexuality.
Chakra 3 is the solar plexus chakra and sits at the level just above the naval. It resonates with the colour yellow and is associated with personal power, control, will and the self.
Chakra 4 is the heart chakra and is located at the centre of the chest. It is tied to the colour green and is related to self esteem, love and relationships.
Chakra 5 is the throat chakra and is found in the throat. It is represented by the colour blue and relates to communication in spoken, written and thought formats.
Chakra 6 is the third eye chakra and is found in the forehead between the eyes. It is associated with the colour indigo and relates to our intuition, vision into the future and time.
Chakra 7 is the crown chakra and is found at the top of the head. It is related to colour violet and is associated with the integration of spirituality and enlightenment.
Chakras are used in reiki, meditation, yoga and other energy work. They can be visualized at any time when needing to focus attention on a specific area of our life that needs attention. You can also focus on the colour of that chakra at its location or in the entire body.
Chakras can have a profound effect on the body and the energy you have. You do not need to have extensive knowledge of them to start using them. They can be easily researched for more information if you desire it.
If you haven’t worked with your chakras before, give it a try by focusing on one for a day, by the location and the colour and see what you notice.
