The word chakra, in Sanskrit, means "wheel, circle or disc", and is used to represent the energy centers of our body, which have the task of "receiving and distributing" our vital energy.
The main chakras are 7, and each of them, in addition to having specific characteristics, is associated with certain emotions, sensations, mental and spiritual functions.
Furthermore, based on the position that each chakra occupies in our body, it is also associated with a specific endocrine gland.
The endocrine glands have the task of releasing hormones into the body, and their functionality is subject to a state of balance which, if compromised, can generate stress, anxiety and organ failure.
A trivial example? The classic "pre-menstrual syndrome".
When the energy of a chakra is active, even the corresponding endocrine gland, or the organs associated with it, are able to perform their vital functions to the fullest.
However, due to trauma, or physical and emotional tensions, the chakras can close temporarily, or, on the contrary, they can be excessively stimulated, and therefore overloaded with energy.
This causes an imbalance, which can manifest itself in emotional disorders.
Knowing the functioning of the chakras, it is therefore possible to understand our energy imbalances, and to understand where to go to work to restore a psycho-physical balance.
To be able to do this we obviously need to know the specific characteristics of each chakra... and for this reason below is a description of the 7 main chakras.
First, however, let us try to understand a little better what the chakras actually are.�
What are Chakras
According to the theory of yoga, we are all made of a physical, visible body and an invisible energy body that regulates our intellectual and spiritual activities.
This invisible body is made of " prana ", which is our vital energy.
The prana flows in the body through special energy channels called " nadi "; these energy channels are very numerous, (there are more than 72,000), but there are 3 main ones: Sumshumna, Ida and Pingala.
It begins his journey at the base of the spine and ends it at the top of his head.
Also the other two secondary but still very important nadis, namely Ida and Pingala start from the base from the spine but instead of proceeding in a straight line, they follow a spiral path, crossing 6 times before ending in the 6 chakra: Ajna, also called third eye.
Every time the nadis (or energy channels) meet, they give life to a chakra, so the chakras in the body are very numerous but we can distinguish 7 main ones that are found in a straight line along the spinal column.
The chakras are therefore energy vortexes.
The purpose of yoga practice is to awaken the energy that resides at the base of the spine, where the first chakra is located, and to make it rise along this energy path, crossing and illuminating all the 7 main chakras.
When a chakra is illuminated by this spiritual energy, which is called kundalini, it brings it back to its regular functioning, repairing the damage caused by the mental, emotional and physical stress of everyday life.
Each chakra, besides having its own function, and representing specific areas of the body, is also associated with many other realities: it has its own color, its own element, its own sound (or mantra ), a deity, a stone, an animal and a planet.
In reality on the characteristics and peculiarities of each chakra one could write rivers of words... among which there would be the risk of getting lost. For this reason, below, here are some of the main features... of the 7 main chakras !
It is found in the perineum and puts us in contact with the earth, provides vital energy and trust in ourselves. If you experience feelings of fear it means that you have an energy block in the first chakra. If you pretend that all is well when instead inside you everything is compressed by fear, then the problem will never go away. Remove your fears from the depths of the subconscious, resolve them and forgive yourself for the fact that, by cultivating fear, you have caused harm to your body.
It is located just below the navel and its task is to be responsible for the satisfaction of needs, emotions and creative realization. Guilt is the feeling that creates the block of energy in the second chakra. Find the strength to take on your faults and feel free.
It is located at the solar plexus and is born of a sense of frustration and shame. This chakra gives us the power of intention and is responsible for our actions. Only the analysis of the causes of the negative and destructive emotions of this chakra can allow their release.
The fourth chakra, the heart chakra, is responsible for the feeling of deep love, inspiration and positive emotions. The pain and other emotional states related to it block Anāhatacakra. The block of this chakra is accompanied by pain and unpleasant sensations in the heart area. The blocking of human chakras, especially that of the heart, requires a great deal of effort to show the will to overcome this condition. If anāhatacakra is blocked, try to overcome apathy and pain and look at your life from the depths.
Blocking occurs when a person is lying to himself or to others. We must be honest with ourselves and others. The viśuddhacakra is found at the level of the throat and allows one to express opinions, communicate with others and express one's creative vein. © 2019 reliberceed.com
It is located in the area of the "three eyes" and is responsible for intuition and communication with the subconscious. Living in the dream, far from reality, blocks this chakra. Dream but endeavor to translate dreams into reality, otherwise they will remain just a fantasy.
It is found in the area of the "fontanella", on the top of the head and allows us to perceive the cosmic energy. A strong attachment to all that is earthly like work, home and people block sahasrāracakra. Unlocking the seventh chakra is possible only after getting rid of the sense of belonging and attachment.
