What Are Chakras

Chakras are energy centers within our body that are believed to help regulate all the processes, from organ functioning to the working of the immune system and balancing our emotions. Seven chakras are positioned throughout the body, starting from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, colour and governs specific functions or characteristics that help make you achieve balance and self-awareness.

Root Chakra

Characteristics: Security, Survival, Physicality

Colour: Red

The root chakra provides the foundation on which we build our life. It supports us in growing and exploring all the aspects of life. It is related to our feelings of safety and security, whether it’s physical or regarding our bodily needs or  housing and financial safety. The root chakra is where we ground ourselves into the earth and anchor our energy.

Sacral Chakra

Characteristics: Emotions, Relationships, Creativity

Colour: Orange

The sacral chakra is key to your creative energy. It is related not only to pursuits of artistry and the imagination but also to our sensuality and capacity for change in all areas of life. The sacral chakra might become misaligned or blocked in some way if feel unfulfilled or are struggling to experience happiness.

Solar Plexus Chakra

Characteristics: Clarity, Responsibility, Self-Discipline

Colour: Yellow

The solar plexus chakra is often thought to be vital for self-esteem, autonomy and determination. When this chakra is well balanced, you will have a clear path ahead of you, will feel independent, success will be easy to visualise and you will feel like you can accomplish almost anything if you set your mind to it. (We definitely recommend to keep this chakra in check)

Heart Chakra

Characteristics: Love, Compassion, Forgiveness

Colour: Green

As you might expect, the heart chakra is firmly connected to the capacity for love and compassion in all their forms. It is sometimes described as a bridge between the mind, body, and spirit. When your heart chakra is well balanced, you will be able to offer empathy to others, be emotionally open and enjoy a deep sense of inner peace. You will feel your emotions fully, and yet also understand them on a cognitive level.

Throat Chakra

Characteristics: Expression, Communication, Connection

Colour: Blue

The Throat chakra is about the expression of oneself: your truth, your purpose in life, your creativity. Note that this chakra has a natural connection with the second chakra or sacral chakra, center of emotions and creativity as well. The throat chakra’s emphasis is on expressing and projecting the creativity into the world according to its perfect form or authenticity.

Third Eye Chakra

Characteristics: Vision, Intuition, Perception

Colour: Indigo

The third eye chakra is an instrument to perceive the more subtle qualities of reality. It goes beyond the more physical senses into the realm of profound energies. Awakening your third eye allows you to open up to an intuitive sensibility and inner perception. Because it connects us with a different way of seeing and perceiving, the third eye chakra’s images are often hard to describe verbally. It puts us in touch with the ineffable and the intangible more closely.

Crown Chakra  

Characteristics: Consciousness, Awareness, Realisation

Colour: Violet

The crown chakra is associated with the transcendence of our limitations, whether they are personal or bound by space and time. It is where the paradox becomes norm, where seeming opposites are one. The quality of awareness that comes with the crown chakra is universal, transcendent. As we are immersed in the energy of the crown chakra, we feel a state of blissful union with all that is. This chakra allows access to the upmost clarity and enlightened wisdom.
