Chakras are the energy centers in our body through which our energy travels. You can think of chakras as invisible, rechargeable batteries that regulate the flow of energy throughout the electrical meridians that run through our physical body. Chakras are charged and recharged through contact with the cosmic energy that surrounds us.
In the high stress of our day to day lives, our chakras can become blocked. Blockages can come from emotional or physical problems as well as that daily stress. If our energy cannot flow freely, we can become physically ill, have discomfort or a sense of being mentally and emotionally out of balance.
Over the next 7 weeks we will address each chakra and how to clear it to improve your energy flow and overall emotional and physical health.
Week 1: The Crown Chakra
What is it: Represented by the color violet (purple), it is located at the top of your head or “your crown”. It provides clarity, connects with your higher self (super conscious) and helps to define our purpose. It is said to be the chakra of divine purpose, universal connection, the soul and your own personal destiny.
How does a blockage manifest: as psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, fear and a lack of purpose.
How do you clear it: “I am connected with my higher self, the universe fills me with clarity and deep love.” During meditation chant this healing affirmation as you focus your breath upwards through your head, traveling down your spine, down the backs of your legs, to the heels of your feet, across the soles of your feet to your toes, traveling upward to begin the cycle again with the next breath.
