What Are Chakras?


Within our bodies lie seven centers of spiritual power, focal points of the transmission and reception of energies: chakras. These chakras are swirling wheels of energy that correspond to each of the major nerve centers in the human body and govern our physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being.  They are aligned along the spine, starting from the base to the top of the head, where Prana, or vitality energy, flow, to keep us healthy and alive.

The Seven Chakras
The first three chakras are the chakras of matter, and are of a physical nature.

First Chakra: Muladhara – governs stability, security, and basic needs. It is located in the first 3 vertebrae, bladder, and colon. Keeping this chakra open and flowing gives us courage and safety.

Second Chakra: Svadhisthana – governs creativity and sexuality. It is located just above the pubic bone and below the belly button. Keeping this chakra open makes us creative.

Third Chakra: Manipura – governs personal power and energy. It is located between the belly button and the sternum.

Fourth Chakra: Anahata – the central chakra, this chakra connects the first three chakras and the upper three chakras, which are chakras of matter and spirit respectively. This chakra serves as a bridge for body and spirit, and is often called the heart chakra, which governs love and compassion.

The last three chakras are chakras of the spirit.

Fifth Chakra: Vishuddha – governs verbal expression, speaking of truth. It is located in the throat region and includes the neck, thyroid/parathyroid glands, the tongue, the mouth, and our teeth and jaws.

Sixth Chakra: Ajna – governs intuition and instinct, which gives us an “inner voice” or a “third eye” in perceiving and analyzing things. It is located between the eyebrows.

Seventh Chakra: Sahaswara – governs enlightenment and spiritual connection to the spiritual realms, the divine, and our own inner selves. It is located at the top of the head and is often the critical chakra when it comes to attaining inner peace and understanding of the universe.

Why must chakras be opened and aligned?

It is believed that our energies must constantly be moving, and therefore, the seven chakras have to be awake and opened, aligned and kept fluid, in order to be well. Imagine a car engine. If an engine’s valve is blocked by dirt and grime, eventually, this clog will cause everything to back up and cause other problems in the car, and left uncleaned too long, can cause the engine to eventually fail.

The same can be said about the chakras. With the body, mind, and soul all connected, the problem of one can affect the others, and therefore fixing this can affect the others as well. For example, a man recently lost his best friend. He develops a heavy cough soon after. Since his heavy feeling from the loss and the cough are both felt on the chest, where the heart chakra is located, once a connection is realized between the loss and the cough, healing can happen much faster if he properly grieves in addition to treating the cough, together as one.

There are many different ways to align and awaken your chakras, and we will cover these in our future blog posts, so stay tuned! In the meantime, listen to this binaural beats track for chakra activation here to get used to the idea:
