Chakra Definition:

Chakras are the main etheric energy centers of the human body. These centres regulate the flow of energy throughout the body.

The chakras are located in the subtle energetic body, or what is called the etheric body. These are also known as the “energy bodies” and are located along the spine, from the base of the spine to the top of the head.

There are the seven major chakras or energy centres of the body. We associate each chakra with a different colour, certain physical and emotions, a sense organ and a major endocrine gland.

The Seven chakras:

1: Root Chakra

Muladhara – Located at the base of the spine, this chakra controls our survival needs such as food and shelter. We associate this chakra with the colour red, earthy smell, taste and touch sensations, as well as security needs.

2: Sacral Chakra

Swadhishtana – Located in the lower abdomen, near the navel, it influences our sense of self-worth. We associate this chakra with creativity, intuition, and spirituality, the colour green, watery smell, taste, and touch sensations.

3: Solar Plexus Chakra

Manipura – Located between the navel and the solar plexus, this chakra is responsible for our personal power and willpower. We also connected it to our intellect and with the colour yellow, light- scent, sound, and head or crown chakra.

4: Heart Chakra

Anahata – located near the heart. We associate this chakra with the colour orange, woody smell, taste, touch sensations. Self love, love and relationships.

5: Throat Chakra

Vishuddha – located near the throat. This chakra is associated with the colour purple , and is associated with the sense of smell, taste, touch sensations. The ability to speak and communicate.

6: Third Eye Chakra

Ajna – located near the forehead. This chakra is associated with the colour indigo, and is associated with the sense of sound, sight, touch sensations and subtle energies. It is said to be the source of intuition, insight, and the connection with higher spiritual concepts, such as awareness of one’s unity with all things. The third eye has been said to be like a gateway that allows in the spiritual knowledge and enlightenment.

7: Crown Chakra

Sahasrara – located near the top of the head, behind your head where your brain meets your skull. It’s called the crown chakra because it is at the top of your head and this is where we connect with the higher consciousnesses of life or God. We connect the crown chakra to the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, which produce hormones that affect how you think and how your body acts. The pituitary gland releases oxytocin, a hormone that promotes trust and love; it also releases dopamine, which helps with addiction and abuse issues.

The History Of Chakras

Chakras have only recently become known in the west, with the growth in popularity of yoga, meditation, healing, martial arts and Eastern philosophy.

Chakras are a complex and ancient energy system originating from India. They were first mentioned in the Ancient Vedas, spiritual texts with teachings dating back as far as 1500 BC. 

The Benefits Of Chakra Meditation

With the knowledge of chakra meditation, one can find a way to balance their emotions.

Chakra meditation is a form of meditation that focuses on balancing the seven chakras in the body. The goal is to create balance and harmony in one’s life by achieving a sense of wholeness and wellbeing. This can assist and lead to spiritual awakening, general good health, and mindfulness. 

How to perform this simple chakra meditation

The first few times you practice a chakra meditation, make sure that you take your time, don’t expect too much, just like any other skill, it will take some time and dedication to enter in to. However, this is a great easy chakra meditation and a solid introduction to the practice. Let’s begin. 

Start your meditation by sitting down in a comfortable position, preferably in a quiet, dimly lit room. Make sure that your spine is straight, but not stiff. Close your eyes, then take a deep breath and start to relax.

A quick tip to relaxation is to think about something you really love, a family member, your dog, a location, an experience, something that puts you and your mind at ease. 

Now, go through each chakra in turn, starting with the root chakra: Simply Imagine that you are drawing energy up from the earth, through the root chakra and that this is building up in the base of your spine. Use whatever senses you can, be it visual, sensation, etc. Everyone’s mind is different. However, the key is to experience the energy interacting in some way with your chakra. 

-Then the Sacral chakra: located at the naval, feel the concentration of energy building up around your navel and visualize a flow of warm lava out of this chakra center.

-Moving on to the solar plexus chakra, let your stomach muscles relax deeply and sense the movement of the energy through your diaphragm.

-Next is the heart chakra. Imagine your heart getting stronger with every breath. See and feel a bright light radiating out from this area.

-Progressing on to the throat chakra, breath in with force. Then gradually relax your tongue, shoulders and neck.

-For the brow chakra, keeping your eyes closed, focus on your “third eye” (the point between your eyebrows). Endeavor to see this area even though your eyes are close and observe what you are seeing.

-Finally, it’s the crown chakra. Visualize a beautiful lotus with a thousand petals blossoming from the tip of your head. As you visualize, see the colour change from a deep violet through to a brilliant white light.

Done correctly, (however there is no proper way to do any internal work correctly) however, this simple chakra meditation can and will, if practised regularly, bring you into union with your inner world, with your I, with your soul. It is a very powerful form of meditation and helps you to stabilise your body, bringing an inner peace and harmony to you.
