Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. … Each of these seven main chakras has a corresponding number, name, color, specific area of the spine from the sacrum to the crown of the head, and health focus.
The 7 Chakras
- Root Chakra (Muladhara)
- Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana)
- Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
- Heart Chakra (Anahata)
- Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
- Third-Eye Chakra (Ajna)
- Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
When our main seven chakras are open and balanced,energy can flow freely through our bodies and minds. When any of these energy centers are blocked, it leads to stagnation and can contribute to a variety of physical and spiritual ailments.
A great way to promote balance in a chakra is to create alignment in your physical body through: yoga postures. breathing practices to encourage the flow of energy. meditation to bring about clarity of mind.
