What are Chakras?


In traditional Indian medicine, such as Ayurvedic medicine, health and wellness are believed to be based on a number of factors. One of these is that the chakras are well-balanced.

The chakras are like wheels of energy constantly spinning in 7 different locations in your body. They spin like a flat plate from the front of our bodies to the back. This means we can work on our chakras ourselves or have others do chakra work with us, such as by massaging our back or using aromatherapy, stones, or crystals.

Reiki also uses the theory of the chakras in its healing. Reiki is a form of ‘hands-on’ healing from Japan. However, it doesn’t always have to be by touch. The most skilled reiki masters can even heal from a distance or with just one look.

In Reiki, there are 14 meridians and chakras. Working on each can boost their energy and get each back into balance.

Each of the seven chakras has energy and color associated with it. They are:

The Root Chakra-red

It is located around the area of your anus, and its energy is the desire for safety, stability, food, water, and shelter. It is the foundation of a good life.

The Sex Chakra-orange

This Chakra is the seat of procreative and reproductive energy. It is the seat of passion and desire.

The Solar Plexus Chakra-yellow

Think of solar, like the sun. The word plexus means network. It is in the middle of your body, at the area where your ribs separate. The Solar Plexus is the seat of willpower, the energy that helps you drive toward success.

Heart Chakra-green

The heart chakra is in the center of your chest and is associated with love and compassion. A balanced chakra fosters good relationships and a happy life.

Throat Chakra-blue

Located at your throat, it controls communication to say what you mean and be understood.

Third Eye-indigo (purplish blue)

Located between your eyebrows, this is the center of your intuition. It helps you ‘see’ the world around you with greater clarity, including the spiritual world.

The Crown Chakra-purple and sometimes white

Located at the top of your head, it connects with all your chakras within and with the universe outside.

If you’ve been feeling run down or out of kilter in certain areas of your life, Reiki might be the perfect way to even out your energy and balance your chakras for better health.
