The seven main Chakras of a human body
A chakra is an organ of your energy body. Like the lungs or kidney. Nothing mysterious there. Each chakra has a different job, just like the physical organs. It might help to think that they are like an orchestra that plays your song and at the same time pick up everyone else`s song. I wanted to give you a little explanation about what each main chakra (there are many more little ones) does and how they effect your life. Let`s begin from the bottom and work our way up. Close to the tail bone is the Root Chakra. It has to do with your survival, grounding, security and identity or purpose. It is like the foundation. Color red, element earth. A goo affirmation might be "I am safe and confident". Blockage in the Root can be caused by trauma, poor bonding with parents, abuse or neglet. Just below the navel you have the Sacral Chakra. This is the home of your pleasure and joy. Color orange, element water, affirmation "I am creative and full of joy". Blockage in the Sacral can be caused by ignored feelings, severe religious programming, abuse and manipulation. Above the navel, under the chest bone is the Solar Plexus Chakra. Home of intuition and confidence, your personal power. Color yellow, element fire, affirmation "I am strong and completely capable". Blockage in the Solar Plexus can be caused by Bullying, authorotative household, abuse, fear and shaming. The Heart Chakra holds love and compassion.Color green, element air, affirmation "I am love and love freely". Blockage can be caused by loss, rejection, abandonment, physical or verbal abuse, betrayal and ignored grief. The Throat Chakra holds space for your creativity and expression. Color blue, element ether or space, affirmation "I am expressive and speak my truth". Blockage here can be caused by lack of trust, drug abuse, verbal abuse or forced secrets. The Third Eye is right between your eye brows and hold your psychic ability like intuition and visualization. Color indigo, element vibration, light and affirmation "I am calm ans can solve any problem". Blockage in the Third Eye can be caused by violence, lack of encouragement for ideas, lack of validation or psychic or intuitive abilities and fear. And then the highest piece in the body is the Crown Chakra and it is like a halo, a crown on the top of your head. The other chakras are like cones spreading from the body both in the front and back. The crown is upwards. This is where you have your wisdom and connection. Color violet, element consciousness, affirmation "I am connected and at peace". A blockage in the Crown can be affected by lack of self education, being ridiculed, withholding knowledge, lack of support for ideas, exposure to fanatical religious beliefs. As you can see, there are many things that can shake our energetic balance. Reiki and energy healing aim to move those blockages and help you get aligned again. I like to use crystals with Reiki. They boost the energy.
