Let’s talk about chakras…
Updated: Apr 23, 2022
So in this post I decided to start talking about our energy centers best known as “chakras”. Their location, color, description and gland. This post is a general description of the chakras and how they relate to our personality as well.
So let’s start by defining the word chakra. The word “Chakra” comes from the ancient Sanskrit word “wheel” some see them as spinning wheels of light. Chakras are unique energy centers located throughout the body. Each chakra holds a unique form of subtle energy called “prana” (by the hindus). Our chakras are strongly affected by our human personality structure and by our emotions as well by our own state of spiritual development. Each of the major chakras is directly linked to a different region of the body as well as to a particular hormone producing endocrine gland system of bodily nerves. Although a lot of clairvoyants claim that we have more than seven in this post we will simplify it by just mentioning the seven major chakras.
The first chakra is called the “Root Chakra” (Muladhara in Sanskrit) which is located in the base of the spine and is connected to the adrenal glands the skeleton and the bone marrow at the core of the bones. The bone marrow is actually a source of our body’s stem cells. The bone marrow also produces the precursors to lymphocytes the type of white blood cells that seed the thymus gland and immune tissues of the body during early childhood. It represents our source of physical stability and basic needs on this earth such as nourishment. The color of the root chakra is red. Root chakra imbalances show themselves as overdoing, overthinking and a frustrated feeling of being stuck.
The second chakra is called the “Sacral Chakra” (Svadhisthana in Sanskrit) and it can be found over the lower pelvic region, the sacral chakra is located directly over the ovaries in women and the testes in men. Since both the testes and the ovaries are endocrine glands and are related to human reproductive function. It represents our source of creativity and sexuality and the coordinating organs are as well the kidney and bladder. When the sacral chakra is open, we imbibe in our creative expression and emotionally connect with others. If blocked, the physical body may experience reproductive issues or an inability to receive pleasure. Its associated color is orange.
The third chakra is called the “Solar Plexus Chakra” (Manipura, in Sanskrit) which is located is located between the navel and breastbone. It represents our personal power system and the seat of our ego, strength and anger. Respective organs are the stomach, intestines, gallbladder, liver, pancreas and spleen. When the solar plexus is open, we are confident, in control and feel immense self-esteem. A blockage here can represent digestion or liver/gallbladder issues and spiritually cause an inability to control oneself and or fear of rejection. Its associated color is yellow.
The fourth chakra is called the “Heart Chakra” it acts as a bridge between the first three physical body related chakras with the upper three more spiritual chakras. This is our center of love and healing. Collaborating organs are the heart, respiratory system and thymus gland. When the heart chakra is open, we may love freely, have great compassion and foster healthy emotional relationships with others. Contrarily, a block at this chakra may represent heartache, an inability to love oneself and even a physical manifestation of heart disease. Its associated color is light green.
The fifth chaka is called the “Throat Chakra” (Vishuddha in Sanskrit) is located in the throat area. An area of verbal expression, this relates to our ability to speak the truth and avoid lying. Collaborating organs include the thyroid, neck vertebrae, esophagus, mouth, teeth and gums. When the throat chakra is open, we are able to communicate and express ourselves truthfully and freely. Its associated color is sky-blue.
The sixth chakra is also known as the “Third Eye Chakra” (Ajna in Sanskrit) is the center of our higher intuition. Located centrally on the forehead, strength in this area helps one disseminate between fantasy and reality and is the seat of one's wisdom. Collaborating organs include the eyes, nose, face and brain. A strong third eye helps one to learn from experience and tap into one's higher self. Its associated color is indigo.
The seventh chakra is also known as the “Crown Chakra” or (Sahaswara in Sanskrit) the crown of the head. This is the center of spiritual enlightenment and when fully open helps us connect with God and or a higher power. Collaborating organs include the nervous system and brain. An area of ultimate understanding and knowledge, it is the chakra that allows for inward flow of wisdom from the divine an extremely important area for our spiritual connectedness. Its associated color is violet or white.
