The 7 Chakras
The word Chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word for wheel. They are the central energy centers within a person’s body. Each Chakra spins like a wheel allowing energy to flow from the pelvic region where the Root Chakra is located through the top of the skull to the Crown Chakra. When in balance, the Chakras are open, allowing energy to flow freely, but certain mental or physical conditions restrain our energy and cause a blockage in one or more of the Chakras. Clearing and balancing our Chakras can be helped by utilizing their corresponding colors, healing crystals, sounds, Yoga poses, meditation, breath work, along with living a healthy lifestyle that optimizes your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. We have the ability to bring ourselves back into a vibrant and harmonious state! The names and colors associated with the Chakra are Root: red, Sacral: orange, Solar Plexus: yellow, Heart: green/pink, Throat: blue, Third Eye: indigo, Crown: white/violet.
Root Chakra: Red Sponge Coral (enhanced)
Solar Plexus: Citrine
Heart: Green Aventurine
Third Eye: Lapis Lazuli
