The understanding of Chakras

The 7 major chakras are part of Indian culture and even if we always talk about the most important ones, there are around 88,000 chakras. Their energies create an aura around our body which establishes harmony and balance between body, soul, and spirit.

This second article focusing on the chakras will allow you to deeper understand the role of each chakra. What happens when there is and when there is no balance? 
Furthermore, for all seven chakras, there are some specific meanings, characteristics, and connections which were not expressed in the previous article. Together, we will discover more details.

Let is see 

three little key informations:

- When there is balance it means that the energy of the chakra flows properly, with no obstacles;

- We say that the chakra is blocked when it is not stimulated enough;

- We say that the chakra is too active or hyperactive when there is too much importance accorded to a specific chakra and it is overstimulated.

1.ROOT CHAKRA (Mooladhara chakra) 

The chakra that establishes a foundation causes depression or anxiety if it is blocked. When it is too active, instead, it might be at the origins of paranoias and greed. But when in balance, it should spread confidence, security, and protection.

Sens: Smell

Emplacement: Between the genital organs and the anus

Keywords: Protection, security, primary needs, abundance, physical consciousness, money, food

Essential oils: cedar, myrrh, patchouli

Some Stones: Red jasper, Coral, Hematite, Garnet

2.SACRAL CHAKRA (Swadhisthana chakra)

The lack of control and boundaries is what happens when there is an unbalance. It might also be a release of emotions that individuals would have difficulties to control.
The Sacral chakra, when balanced, establishes awareness with your emotions and pleasures.

Element: Water

Emplacement: Under the navel

Keywords: Pleasure, emotions, addictions, well-being, sexuality, abundance

3.SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA (Manipura chakra)

Element: Fire

Color: Yellow

Sens: Sight

Emplacement: The pit of the stomach
Keywords: Acceptance, uniqueness, appartenance, self-worth, self-confidence, self-esteem

4.HEART CHAKRA (Anahata chakra)

When there is a block, it might cause jealousy, avarice, over self-love, and lack of limits. On the contrary, when it is too active, it might be a source of sadness, insecurity, mistrust, and emotional releases. 
And, when the chakra is balanced, the person will feel light, not afraid of what will happen to her/his heart. Plus, the communication will be driven by empathy, and ease to forgive is installed as well.

5.THROAT CHAKRA (Vishuddhi chakra)

When the fifth chakra is not open, individuals might have difficulties communicating and expressing the truth and their feelings. They will also have difficulties finding words to express themselves.

 This is why when the chakra is balanced, individuals embrace their uniqueness and they do not look for recognition, acceptance and approval from others.

Element: Sound

On the contrary, when there is balance, individuals have clarity in their thoughts and in the vision of life.
