Find Out Why Chakra Care Is Important To Your Well-Being
by Laurie Barraco
Is it really necessary to routinely check in to see if our chakras are cleared, energized and balanced? Absolutely! Chakra hygiene is a necessary practice to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. If any one of these energy centers is out of balance, we will feel the effects and may experience the symptoms that are listed below.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means spinning wheel. We have 7 main chakras in our body and many minor chakras in between. For now, we'll focus mainly on the main 7. Each chakra has an area within the body that it corresponds with as well as the emotions, thoughts and spiritual connections associated with that chakra. After identifying the chakra or chakras that are out of balance, we can then see which physical and non-physical areas of our lives that are requiring some TLC. Often I find that when one chakra is out of whack, the others that are next to it also become overloaded and begin to wobble and fall out of their rhythm.
Here's a brief rundown on where each chakra is and what its correspondences are:
Root - hips down to the feet, associated with family, foundation and social relationships
Sacral - hips, reproductive area, sexuality, creativity, fertility, passion
Solar plexus - stomach area, emotions, gut feelings, willpower, empathy
Heart - heart, lungs, chest, unconditional love for self and others
Throat - throat area, neck, communication, creative expression, truth
Third eye - center of the forehead, intuition, clairvoyance
Crown - above the head, divine knowing, higher realms of communication
