Have you heard all the talk about chakras and wanted more info? We’ve got a quick run down on chakras for ya, plus a highlight on the root chakra specifically.
What are chakras?
Your chakras are the connection between your physical body and your energetic body. They are centers for the flow of energy and each focuses on or rules over various specific types of energies.
There are 7 main chakras that run up and down the center of your body. This image shows where your chakras are located on your body and the focus of each.
Why balance your chakras?
Properly cared for, your chakras can help support you in feeling physically, mentally and spiritually vibrant and well. When your chakras become imbalanced, you can feel emotional effects like depression, anxiety, and anger in addition to physical ailments like pain, inflammation, and more.
How to take care of your chakras?
Just being aware of your internal energetic system is the first important step! Learning about the types of energy each chakra rules and the signs and symptoms of each one when out of balance is also key. Once you find a chakra that needs your attention, you can pray or meditate on that chakra. You can use white light visualization to open, energize, and balance it.
Crystals and Chakra work
You can also use physical tools to help align your focus to the energies of the chakra you are working with-this is where crystals come in! You can meditate or pray with your crystals. This is a great technique when you have time to focus intently, but what about in your day-to-day when your chakras can fluctuate due to stress and the daily grind? Crystal jewelry is the perfect answer! With stones chosen to support, energize, open and balance the chakra you are working with-you can wear it on your body and help you keep your target chakra in bright, beautiful equilibrium.
