Q. What is Chakra?
Chakra is an energy current that supplies the body meridians with energy, which thus enables them to nourish every cell in the body. There are several chakras in the body that function to collect energy from the Universe. Any blockage in chakras may result in the disrupted flow of the energy, which later causes one to suffer from either physical, emotional or mental disorders.
The number of chakras has been a topic of many experts’ debates, but most people agree to concentrate on seven chakras in our body.
MULADHARA (the Root Chakra) – Located at the base of the spine, this chakra is associated with red color. Muladhara allows one’s energy to flow down to and be drawn from the earth. Focusing your attention on the color of a juicy red apple can help bring your energetic body in alignment with your physical body.
SWADISTANA (the Sacral Chakra) - Located below the navel, this chakra is associated with the orange or red-orange color. The process of making changes in our life stream through our personal choices is a product of second chakra energy. Swadistana helps us find balance and affects the way we make decisions in life. A well functioning sacral chakra would lead one to be intuitive and adaptable with changes.
MANIPURA (the Solar Plexus Chakra or the Navel Chakra) - Located between ribs bottom and navel, manipura is often associated with yellow color. Manipura has to do with will power and self esteem. This intuitive chakra is where we get our "gut instincts" that signal us to do or not to do something. Well balanced manipura results in confidence and integrity.
ANAHATA (the Heart Chakra) – Located at the middle of the chest, anahata is often associated with green color. This chakra is “the bridge” of spiritual and physical aspects of one’s life. This love center of our human energy system is often the focus in bringing about healing. Thus, the words "Love Heals all" have great truth. Well balanced Anahata leads one to become compassionate, hopeful, and emotionally strong.
VISHUDHA (the Throat Chakra) – Located at the center of the throat, Vishudha has to do with communication and verbal expressions. This chakra is often symbolized with the color of sky blue. A challenge of the throat chakra is to express ourselves in the most truthful manner. Also to receive and assimilate information. Well functioning Vishudha leads one to be able to communicate clearly and speak up for themselves.
AJNA (the Third Eye Chakra) – Located at the spot between two eyebrows, the chakra is associated with wisdom and psychic insight. Our ability to separate reality from fantasy or delusions is in connection with the healthfulness of this chakra. Well balanced Ajna results in the ability to see the world without judgment. Indigo is considered the color that resembles this chakra.
SAHASRARA (the Crown Chakra) – Located at the above of the head crown, Sahasrara is associated with the color of white or violet. This chakra is often pictured as a lotus flower opening to allow spiritual awakening in an individual. Being related to higher consciousness, well balanced Sahasrara leads one to have a strong connection with the Universe.
