Understanding the Seven Chakras
Holistic healing focuses on the seven chakras of the body, the seven centers of the body through which our energy flows. These chakras are the entry points for healing the mind, body and spirit, and if one or more chakras are blocked or if they are too open, your health can suffer.
Each chakra represents and corresponds to a different location on our bodies and impacts specific emotional and physical issues that we may face. Chakras are positioned throughout our body from the bottom of the spine to the top of the head. MindBodygreen offers an outline of the seven:
This chakra is located at the base the spine, and represents the feeling of being safely grounded in this life. It can affect our emotional survival, and also deals with day-to-day needs, like issues with money and food.
This chakra is located in the lower abdomen, approximately two inches below the navel and two inches inside. This chakra impacts our sense of well-being, as well as pleasure, intimacy and connections with those around us.
Solar Plexus Chakra
This chakra is located in the upper abdomen. It impacts many of the emotional issues that relate to the self – self-worth, self-confidence and self-esteem. This chakra is believed to most affect your sense of confidence and ability to be control of your own life.
As its name implies, the heart chakra is located in the center of the chest, just above the heart. As you might guess, this chakra impacts the emotional issues of love, joy and inner peace, and it can affect our ability to love and our present or future loves.
This chakra, located in the throat, represents our ability to communicate. Think of it as a chakra of speaking – speaking the truth, your feelings and generally communicating with those around you. Problems with the throat chakra impact issues such as communication and self-expression.
Third Eye Chakra
This chakra is located in the forehead, between the eyes, and is sometimes called the Brow Chakra. It allows us to see things around us while focusing on the big picture. Intuition, imagination and wisdom are all affected by the third eye chakra, along with cognition and decision-making abilities.
This chakra, located at the very top of the head, is the highest chakra. It represents the ability to be spiritually connected, and deals with such emotional issues as inner and outer beauty and feeling blissful. It is also believed that we experience our connections to spirituality through the crown chakra.
