Here are the 7 Chakras with their location, colour and meaning:
1. Root Chakra (Muladhara Chakra)
Location: Base of the spine, at the tailbone area
Meaning: Physical identity, stability, and grounding
It is said that a blocked and unbalanced root chakra could manifest physical issues such as constipation, arthritis and bladder or colon problems, or emotionally through insecurities about finances, basic needs, and well-being.
2. Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana Chakra)
Location: Below the navel and just above pubic bone
Meaning: Sexuality, pleasure, creativity
Physical problems linked to a blocked and unbalanced sacral chakra include urinary tract infection, lower back pain, and impotency. In terms of emotional issues, the sacral chakra is attached to our feeling of self-worth in the areas of pleasure, sexuality, and creativity.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura Chakra)
Location: The upper abdomen – in the stomach area
Meaning: Self-esteem and confidence
When our third chakra is blocked or unbalanced, we often would experience digestive problems like ulcers, heartburn, eating disorders and indigestion. This chakra is where we draw our personal power, hence it is connected to our self-esteem and confidence.
4. Heart Chakra (Anahata Chakra)
Location: The centre of the chest, just above the heart
Meaning: Love and compassion
If our heart chakra is blocked or unbalanced, what would manifest in our physical health would be heart-related issues, asthma, and weight issues.
However, blocks can be often be noticed through one’s action – those with their heart chakra blocked, they tend to often put others first and to their own detriment. The heart chakra is the middle of the seven others; hence it serves as the connector between our upper and lower chakras. In addition, it represents our capability to love and connect with other. So, when it is out of alignment, we would feel lonely, insecure, isolated.
5. Throat Chakra (Vishuddha Chakra)
Location: The throat
The throat chakra is obviously linked to our ability in verbal communication. Voice and throat, including dental and mouth issues are indications of a blockage. At the same time, blocks can be seen through dictating a conversation, gossiping, speaking without thinking and having trouble speaking your mind. However, once aligned, you will be able to speak and listen with compassion and feel confident when you speak as you know you are being true to yourself with words.
6. Third Eye Chakra (Ajna Chakra)
Location: Between the eyes, on the forehead also known as the “brow chakra”
Meaning: Intuition and imagination
As the Third Eye Chakra is located on our heads, blockages would bring upon headaches, difficulty to concentrate, sight and hearing problems. In terms of emotional blockage, a person would have trouble listening to reality (a person who thinks to “know it all”) or is unable to get in touch with their intuition. When the Third Eye Chakra is open, balance and aligned, one would be able to follow their intuition and see the big picture.
7. Crown Chakra (Sahasrara Chakra)
Location: At the top of the head
Colour: Violet or white
Meaning: Awareness and intelligence
The Crown Chakra is connected to all the other chakras, so it affects all the organs as well as the brain and nervous system. It is to believe that the Crown Chakra is the chakra of enlightenment and it represents our connection to one’s life purpose and spirituality. When one’s Crown Chakra is blocked, he/she may seem to be narrow-minded, sceptical, or stubborn. However, when the chakra is open, it would help keep all the other chakras open and to bring one to both bliss and enlightenment. The Crown Chakra is also where we draw infinite intelligence from the Universe.
Having that said, these 7 Chakras are all of the energetic centres in our body that are link to our feelings. And if one (or more) of them can relate to you, I’d like to invite you on a journey where I will guide and help you balance and align your chakras to bring you to your own journey of self-realization, enlightenment and bliss.
