Chakras

What are Chakras?

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that translates roughly to “wheel” in English.  There are hundreds of chakras within our subtle bodies, and each is a small energy center (similar to a vortex) that connects us to the rest of the Universe.  I personally prefer to work with the chakra system (as opposed to meridians or other flow based systems) mainly because I was dealing with chakras long before I became involved with Energetic Healing .  I begin each session by clearing and balancing the client’s major chakras. Most people only deal with (or may only be aware of) the seven major chakras (depicted in the diagram to the right) so I’m only going to describe those here:                            7th chakra / crown / violet or white                          6th chakra / third eye / indigo                          5th chakra / throat / blue                          4th chakra / heart / green                          3rd chakra / solar plexus / yellow                          2nd chakra / sacral / orange                          1st chakra / root / red   The chakras aren’t a part of the physical body … they are connected to the energetic and emotional bodies (sometimes referred to as the “subtle bodies”).  Like the Chinese meridian system, each chakra is associated with certain organs in the body.  But they are also associated with particular emotional states and mental actions. And each chakra has a specific color associated with it.  Below I’ve given a brief description of the chakras and their associations. Muladhara … the Root Chakra.  The root chakra sits below the base of the spine (near the tip of the coccyx).  It is associated with the adrenal glands and immune system.  This chakra keeps us grounded to the Earth and helps keep us stable (physically and emotionally).  An over-active root chakra can manifest as greed or materialism … an under-active root chakra can cause fear or nervousness. Swadhistnana … the Sacral Chakra. The sacral chakra is midway between the pelvic bone and navel. It is associated with the reproductive organs. This chakra affects the emotions and creativity. An over-active sacral chakra may lead to addictions or being overly emotional … an under-active sacral chakra can leave one apathetic or emotionally “numb”. Manipura … the Solar Plexus Chakra. The solar plexus chakra is located near the physical solar plexus in the body. It is associated with the spleen and pancreas. This chakra deals with self-esteem and personal power. An over-active solar plexus chakra may be responsible for overly aggressive or domineering behavior … an under-active solar plexus chakra can result in poor self-esteem or overly timid behavior. Anahata … the Heart Chakra. The heart chakra is located near the heart and lungs in the center of the sternum. It is associated with the heart and thymus. This chakra deals with love and trust. An over-active heart chakra may result in clingy or smothering behavior toward others … an under-active heart chakra may cause cold or distant behavior toward others. Vishuddha … the Throat Chakra. The throat chakra is located about midway up the neck. It is associated with the thyroid. This chakra affects truth in communicating. An over-active throat chakra can be responsible for talking too much without listening or dominating conversations or situations … an under-active throat chakra may result in a lack of communication. It should be noted that not speaking the truth can result in this chakra becoming blocked. Ajna … the Third-Eye Chakra. The third-eye chakra is located in the center of the forehead. It is associated with the pituitary gland. This chakra influences our insight and intuition. An over-active third-eye chakra can lead to spending too much time in fantasy worlds, nightmares, or even hallucinations … an under-active third-eye chakra may result in thinking that is too rigid, denial of reality, or confusion. Sahasrara … the Crown Chakra. The crown chakra is located at the top of the head in the center. It is associated with the pineal gland. This chakra deals with wisdom and spiritual peace. An over-active crown chakra can result in too much intellectualizing or a mental detachment from the body or spirit … an under-active crown chakra can lead to spiritual apathy/uncertainty or excessive materialism. I also deal with additional chakras, especially the “extended chakras”, that connect us with the Earth and the spiritual energies of the Universe.  If needed I will also clear and balance the six extended chakras prior to working on other areas within a client’s energetic body.
