The 7 Chakras
The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for “wheel.” They are hot spots of energy that form a direct path up the spinal column from the base of your spine to the top of your head.
Their names and locations are as follows:
- Muladhara — Base of the Spine
- Svadhishana — Sacrum
- Manipura — Solar Plexus
- Anahata — Heart
- Vishuddha — Throat
- Ajna — Forehead
- Sahasrara — Crown
Each chakra serves its own unique purpose in maintaining your overall health.
Mental and Physical Health
Each chakra is responsible for a different aspect of your health. And if one falls out of balance you could experience several physical and mental ailments.
For example, if your first chakra is out of line, you could experience back pain. If your sixth chakra is off balance you could have nightmares.
However, if you balance your chakras, each one can provide you with a different benefit.
For example, a balanced fourth chakra can help boost your self-esteem. Healing your second chakra can give you more energy and increase your stamina.
How to Align Your Chakras
There are several ways to heal and balance your chakras. One popular method is through the use of healing crystals.
But, one of the simplest and most beneficial methods is through chakra meditation.
Meditation has been proven to decrease stress and could even help protect you from heart disease. Focusing on your chakras during meditation can also help you get in tune with your body and mind and help you attain balance.
