Awakening to Spirituality

A blog about my path to Spiritual Awakening

The 7 Chakras

images (5)In my quest to discover exactly what it takes to manifest my heart’s desires I have discovered some pretty interesting information.  Did you know that we are all just a ball of energy?  Weird, right!  But it’s true, we all have seven different chakras located inside of us, and each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color and specific functions that it governs.

A “chakra” by definition is, energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to the immune system and emotions.

Each of the seven chakras are positioned within our body from the base of our spine to the crown of our head.  Here is a list of all seven chakras and location, color and specific functions it governs.

  • Root (1st) — Base of the spine; red; governs survival instincts, grounding.
  • Sacral (2nd) — Lower abdomen; orange; governs sexuality, intuition, self-worth/self-esteem.
  • Solar Plexus (3rd) — Upper abdomen; yellow; governs impulse control, ego.
  • Heart (4th) — Center of the chest; green; governs compassion, spirituality.
  • Throat (5th) — Throat; blue; governs communication, emotion.
  • Third Eye (6th) — Between the eyes; purple; governs rationality, wisdom, imagination.
  • Crown (7th) — Top of the head; indigo; governs connection with the Divine.

The ability of your energy centers (chakras) to function optimally is what keeps you psychologically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually balanced.  Anytime a chakra becomes blocked, underactive or overactive, it can throw you off balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

More often than not, our chakras become unbalanced due to daily life pressures and the way that we handle them.  However, if your chakras are out of balance, overactive or underactive you can perform a cleansing technique called “energy healing” (see post on energy healing) to remove the blockage and/or negativity, and by doing that you will restore the chakra to its optimal balance.

Our bodies will tell us if our chakras are out of balance, overactive or underactive by exhibiting specific symptoms related to the unbalanced chakra.  Below is a description of how you may feel if a chakra is overactive and/or underactive.

Root Chakra

Each of the chakras are associated with specific glands and organs in our body, and when they become unbalanced it triggers your body to exhibit specific symptoms related directly to the unbalanced chakra.  It’s pretty amazing that our body can speak to us, in the form of symptoms, as a way to alert us that a chakra is out of balance.  Below is a list of the glands and/or organs that each chakra is associated with and the symptoms you may experience if it becomes unbalanced.
