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.

Element: Earth

Color: Red 

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

Color: Orange

Sens: Taste 

Emplacement: Under the navel

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

Some Stones: Carnelian, Stibilite, Tiger’s eye

3.SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA (Manipura chakra) 

When the Solar Plexus chakra is blocked, it might cause self-doubts and you might feel overwhelmed or ashamed. But, when it is in balance, there is an ease to express yourself with no fear and no judgment. 

Element: Fire

Color: Yellow

Sens: Sight

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

Some Stones: Amber, Citrine
, Topaz

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. 

Element: Air
Color: Green

Sens: Touch

Emplacement: In the middle of the chest 
Keywords: love, confidence, connection, compassion, empathy, inner peace
Essential oils: Rose, neroli, lemon balm
Some Stones: Quartz rose, Emerald, Jade

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

Color: Light blue 

Sens: Hearing

Emplacement: Throat

Keywords: Communication, self-expression, truth

Some Stones: Aquamarine
, Turquoise, Blue Howlite

6.THIRD EYE CHAKRA (Ajna chakra)

When the balance of the Third eye chakra is absent, there is a risk of depression, anxiety, and of being often sick. In this case, the chakra might influence your state of mind and you might feel negative, lost, and stuck. 
On the contrary, when there is balance, individuals have clarity in their thoughts and in the vision of life.

Element: Light

Color: Indigo

Emplacement: In the middle of the upfront

Keywords: Intuition, wisdom, consciousness, abundance, intuition, imagination
Some Stones: Lapis Lazuli, Sapphire, Sodalite

7.CROWN CHAKRA (Sahasrara chakra)

When there is a lack of balance, you might feel lost and disconnected. Individuals will also be closed to new ideas and knowledge. The Crown chakra might cause isolation and emotional stress. When the Crown chakra is balanced, it enhances wisdom and self-awareness.

Element: Divine consciousness

Color: Violet
Emplacement: The very top of the head

Keywords: Wisdom, understanding, spiritual connection
Stones: Clear quartz, Amethyst, Moonstone
