The 7 Chakras, Simplified

The 7 Chakras, Simplified

The 7 Chakras and what they mean, simplified...
You might have heard your yoga teacher talking about Chakras. But what are they and why are they important? We wanted to explain keeping it super simple, so here goes! 

There are 7 major energy centres in our body. Each one of them has its own meaning, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. To keep our energy vibe high and open we simply need to listen to what our body is trying to tell us. And these energy centres can be used as a map, guiding you to what you need to heal in your life. So let’s start from the ground up! 

1. The Root Chakra. The root chakra is located at the base of your spine. It represents being grounded, stable in home, family and finances. Connection to nature, and most importantly staying “present” in the moment. When any of these areas of your life feels “off”, simply just getting out in nature, decluttering your space, and turning off the noise and distractions of daily life can help you realign this energy centre. 🌲

2. The Sacral Chakra. The sacral chakra is located below the navel. It represents creativity, passion, and pleasure. This is also where we house our guilt, which in turn will block your creative flow. When we aren’t fulfilling our simple pleasures in life we can tend to over indulge in more unhealthy pleasures, like alcohol and over eating. Make sure you are doing things for yourself that make YOU happy, without the guilt, and you’ll be sure to keep the healthy creative flow of energy. 👩‍🎨

3. The Solar Plexus. This chakra is located at your tummy above the naval. I like to call this the “Care Bear” chakra. We’re just like those cute little Care Bears. Our courage, confidence and strength come from this energy centre. When the energy is flowing we feel strong and confident. When we are feeling weak, and have low self esteem, this energy centre is likely blocked. We even feel “sick to our tummies”. Be strong and confident like a care bear and you’ll have the courage to fight and concur anything this life throws at you. ⭐️

4. The Heart Chakra. The heart chakra is located, well I’m sure you guessed it, in the centre of your chest. It represents love, self love, giving and receiving and most importantly, forgiveness. Not the traditional Forgiveness like we hear from the generations before us “I’ll forgive but I won’t forget”. When we hold on to those experiences we create resentment, fear and anger, in turn blocking our heart centre. We need to learn to send love to all those around us and turn resentment into gratitude. Open your heart to receive all the abundance you deserve in this life and you will keep this energy centre wide open! ❤️

5. The Throat Chakra. The throat is located in your neck and throat. It’s all about Expression. Speaking your truth, saying what you really mean with out fear of being judged by others. Expressing your self creativity through singing or speech. When we aren’t saying what we truly want to say we block that energy centre. Making it even harder to speak up. We can even manifest a cough or sore throat. So if you’re feeling off here, open it back up by saying what you really feel. Or even just belt out your favourite tune in the shower or car. Anyone up for a Karaoke night?? 🎤

6. The Third Eye Chakra. This chakra is located between the brow. It governs your intuition, your inner knowledge, inner voice, dreams, and your sixth sense. When the noise in your head is worry, fear, past or future, you’re likely blocked and you’re not getting the messages from your highest intuition. It’s so important to have this chakra, and the root chakra open together. (As above so below). When we are grounded and present we can quiet the noise in our minds and the messages from your higher self will be loud and clear. Keep these two balanced and your sixth sense will become so much more powerful. But I promise you won’t “see dead people” 😆

7. The Crown Chakra. This chakra is located at the top of your head. It’s your direct connection to the divine, the universe, Christ consciousness, pure bliss and nirvana. A sign that you might be blocked here is that you may feel you’ve lost faith in anything outside of yourself. Sadness, depression and feeling lost in this vast, infinite universe. Keep it open by prayer and meditation. Keep the faith. This universe is divine, feel it inside of yourself. You are ALWAYS connected to that universal life force energy. You just need to simply, Believe. 🙏
