Most people I talk to are stressed, overwhelmed, and unhappy with at least one major aspect of their lives. This can be in their jobs, their finances, or their relationships. They are unbalanced. Chakra balancing can help you find that stability in your life. It can help you learn how to add balance and keep your life from feeling as if you are just teetering from one thing to the next.
Prepping for the good life is about finding the harmony in all areas of our lives. You don’t have to believe in chakras to find the benefit in balance.
Chakra Balancing with the 7 Chakras
What are the 7 Chakras?
Chakras are described as energy systems in the body that relate to different aspects of your life, both here on Earth and with the Universe. Focusing on each of these energy systems, and in return focusing on the different areas of your life, will help you bring them all into balance. Physical and mental ailments can occur when we are unbalanced; Chakra balancing will help you figure out which areas of your life are out of wack and which ones you don’t need as much work on.
The lower chakras are a part of your Earthly self. These are your baser instincts, your physical needs, your place in the world, your sexuality, and your relationships with others.
These are the lower chakras:
Root Chakra or Muladhara – The root chakra is all about that base and how strong your roots are. The root chakra surrounds your childhood, upbringing, and parental figures. It can help you feel safe and relaxed in life. It is located at the base of your spine.
Sacral Chakra or Svadhisthana – The sacral chakra is located around the lower abdomen, a few inches below the navel. This chakra is the seat of our creativity (which includes creating life!), and our ability to manifest the life we want. Our relationships, and learning not to hold on to things that no longer serve us, are also a part of this important chakra.
Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura – Located between the navel and the solar plexus, just below the rib cage, this chakra is full of sunshine! Love for yourself is big in this chakra. How can you truly love others if you don’t love yourself fits well here.
The upper chakras are our spiritual selves. They are related to our intuition, perception of the world around us, our self-expression, and our wisdom.
These are the upper chakras:
Heart Chakra or Anahata – This chakra isn’t really a lower or an upper chakra, it’s the heart, the bridge between our earthly and spiritual selves. The heart chakra resides in the center of our chests. It is the healing center of our body and it is where our physical and our spiritual world connect.
Throat Chakra or Vishudda – This is the first of the upper chakras, connecting your physical voice to your inner self. If you are not being your authentic self then there is a good chance that your throat chakra needs some chakra balancing.
Third Eye Chakra or Ajna – This chakra is also sometimes called the brow chakra due to it’s location at the brow, above your nose and between your eyes. This is where your intuition sits and gives you a connection to something bigger than yourself.
Crown Chakra or Sahasrara – This is the highest chakra, the connection to our higher selves, to the Universe, to God, to Everything. A balanced crown chakra ill can help us live a mindful life, to live in the now, and live a life of peace and love.
