What is the Chakra System?
Chakra is a Sanskit word that literally means “wheel”. These circular, spinning energy centers exist in our energy (etheric) body. There are seven main chakras that are located along the spine,
extending outward through the front and back of the physical body. Each Chakra has elements and characteristics, and a healthy chakra system allows energies to flow, impacting our health and well-being.
Each chakra isprovides energy to a specific body system/organ. The chakra is also connected to specific spiritual and mental aspects. Each person’s chakra system is different, the strength and health of each chakra varying according to that person’s level of consciousness and awareness of integrating energies.
The lower chakras are associated with fundamental emotions and needs, as these chakras vibrate at a lower frequency. As you go up to the higher chakras, the vibration rises as chakras are associated with higher levels of spirituality and mental awareness.
Earth Star Chakra:
Located 12 to 18 inches below the feet, the Earth Star Chakra connects you to the powerful magnetic energies of the earth. This “super Root Chakra” provides groundedness, as well as the ability for healers, empaths and spiritual seekers to release energies taken on during their day. This chakra creates the Mother Earth energy that balances and stabilizes the negative energies from the past that hold us down in this existence through generational transgressions of our ancestors.
Located at the base of the spine, the root chakra is represented by the color red. Located at the base of the spine, it is responsible for your sense of safety and security. Healing of this chakra promotes proper energy flow through the other chakras.
Located in your lower abdomen and represented by the color orange, the sacral chakra is the center of your passion, creativity and sexuality. Like a flowing river, this chakra allows you to let go, to experience change and go with the flow.
Located at the navel, this chakra is associated with present attachments with people, places and things not only in the physical world, but on the spiritual or energetic plane. Some attachments are: previous partners, anyone you have been intimate with (sex), people who drain your energy and “latch” onto you, as well as places and objects such as money, cars, homes and relationships. Attachments are like energetic umbilical cords connected to these objects and situations. Balancing this chakra in conscious disconnect assists in releasing and clearing unhealthy attachments and unwanted energies that are holding you back from achieving your full potential.
Located just above your navel and represented by the color yellow, a balanced solar plexus chakra brings self confidence, a strong sense of being and warrior spirit.
The heart chakra is represented by the color green. Influencing love and relationships, a healthy and open heart chakra fills you with love and compassion.
The throat chakra is represented by the color light blue. Influencing your self-expression and communication, a healthy throat chakra assists with self-confidence and self-expression. Balance this chakra and be more truthful to yourself and able to verbalize needs, desires and opinions.
Located in the space between the eyebrows and represented by indigo blue, the Third Eye, or Ajna, Chakra influences your intuition. A balanced Third Eye Chakra leads you to great inner
knowledge, an expanded imagination and spiritual gifts.
At the crown of your head and represented by the color purple, the crown chakra influences your connection to the divine. A balanced and healthy crown chakra brings with it spirituality, inspiration and enlightenment.
Soul Star Chakra
Located 6 inches above the Crown Chakra, the Soul Star Chakra is also called the “Seat of the Soul”. Although located out of the physical body, the Soul Star Chakra is also know as the Stellar Gateway. This Chakra can connect the soul to enlightenment. A balanced and awakened Soul Star Chakra can assist you with leading a more joyful, spiritual and healthy physical existence. White light is used to balance this chakra, and provide an entry point into the seven main chakras for divine energy and other dimensional gateways such as connecting with Ascended Masters, Guides and Angels. This energy is used for opening the main chakras to bring in the energy that is the power to balance the chakras. Some indications of an unbalanced soul star chakra are migraines, paranoia and mental fatigue. Crystals useful for working to open the gateway of divine energy and love are clear quartz, selenite and milky quartz.
