Chakras are centers of energy found in everyone, and these centers receive, transform and distribute the universal life force throughout the body. As such, chakras play an important part in our physical, emotional and spiritual health. When our chakras are out of balance, it’s a warning sign that there is something bigger at play that needs to be addressed. Here are five things to know about your chakras.
They’re not pronounced SHAKRAS (with a shhhh sound). They are pronounced Chakras with a “Ch” sound.
They are energy centers that run from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. They are however not the only chakras in your body. They’re simply the “big dogs” if you will.
Chakras are wheels of energy. As with all energy, it’s meant to flow. When your energy is stagnant or blocked, you can manifest dis-ease within your physical body.
Essential oils can help you open your chakras. For example, the throat chakra which is our center for communication and personal expression can be stimulated and opened with Sage, Lavender, and Frankincense.
The best ways to balance your chakras are through meditation. Join me for a 10-minute chakra balancing meditation below!
