The CHAKRAS… I know, some of you may be thinking, wait a second, aren’t the chakras something those ‘woo-woo’ people talk about? The answer is yes AND they are also incredible for anyone and everyone!!
It’s been almost 20 years since I first learned about them. Ever since my first glimpse into this brilliant ancient system, they’ve proven to be one of the most powerful tools I know for helping empower and heal myself, as well as others (through the work I do with Yoga, Reiki and Coaching). They are a potent tool that’s supported me through personal growth points, life’s hurdles, and deepened my connection to my inner wisdom and intuition. I come back to their wisdom time and time again; they truly are a vehicle that helps me live a life I feel awesome living!
For centuries, people have used the Chakras as a system to understand the energy in our body. The challenging part of this system is understanding what “energy” really is. It’s not super tangible, but we are all made up of energy and we feel energy. We’re aware if our energy feels up or down, we can feel the energy in a room and we feel the energy of people. Unlike the floors, walls, or ceilings that surround us, what makes us alive is the life energy that flows within us.
So, what exactly are the chakras?
The Chakras are energy transformation points on the body. They exist along the center line of the body, beginning at the base of the spine and working up to the crown of the head. There are 7 Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown. Each of them house different physical, mental, emotional and spiritual characteristics and qualities that help us govern and understand why and how we are.
By understanding the energy and themes housed in each chakra, we are better equipped to understand our bodies, minds, and emotions. The wisdom of the chakras helps us connect to our body’s natural healing ability. They’re a brilliant vehicle for navigating the roads of deeper self-awareness, understanding, and acceptance. These roads are important because they help us create the changes and actions we want to make in our lives. Metaphorically speaking, the chakras “open- up” or “awaken” when we reach new levels of awareness and let go of old patterns, energy, and mindsets. This allows us to transform the way we see ourselves, arrive into, and experience our lives.
