Alhtough many people know a word ‘chakra’, they do not know what it actually means. Consequently, they do not know how to balance them. So, what is the chakra?
The word ‘chakra’ stems from the Sanskrit and literally means ‘wheel’ or ‘disk’. By definition, this word usually implies the human body center in which life energy of ‘prana’ flows through. Every center corresponds with a particular part of a body, the functioning of certain organs and certain abilities of a person.
Some people say that they do not have chakras or they have not all of them. However, it is not true. Everyone has seven chakras: five of them are located along the spine column and two of them – in the head. The chakras are not only responsible for the functioning of a certain part of human body, but also provide connection of this part with the outer world. Moreover, the first five chakras are connected with a particular Earth element – earth, air, fire, water or ether.
The names of the chakras are Muladhara, Svadisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Visuddha, Anja and Sahasrara. Now let us get to know more about each of them and some problems, which may appear if certain type of chakra is out of balance.
Undoubtedly, there is no person who has never experienced at least one of these problems. That is why, there are several ways to balance your chakras which do not require a lot of money, time or special experience. At the same time, these methods demand your efforts and desire to be healthy, balanced and full of energy.
The first and probably the most well-known way of chakra balancing is yoga. In Sanskrit, word ‘yoga’ means ‘connection’. This word includes many definitions, but the broadest one defines yoga as a set of practices for physical, mental and spiritual health. The most popular practices include asanas (physical exercises), pranayamas (breathing), chanting mantras and various forms of meditation. Consequently, each type of chakra can be balanced with the help of certain asanas, pranayamas and mantras.
Apart from yoga, each chakra can be kept in balance with the help of aromatherapy. That is why, you can use different essential oils in order to maintain your physical and spiritual health. Various plants and flowers, which compose a particular oil, help to harmonize the work of chakras and increase the person’s level of energy in general.
Another attractive method to keep chakras in balance is food. It is very exciting to compose your menu, basing not only on your preferences but also on ingredients and condiments, which are necessary for certain type of chakra. Another important point is that it is not only about ingredients, but also about the way of cooking (alchemic operation) which is connected with the Earth element of each chakra.
Moreover, it is noteworthy that each chakra is associated with its own colour: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet (or white) respectively. That is why, according to the colour and other properties each chakra can be kept in balance with the help of stones and minerals. For example, shungite and other black minerals are used for the balancing of the Root chakra.
