Within every one of us lies a sacred system that aligns to connect our mind, body, and spirit. Many of you have probably heard or know a little bit about this system, the Chakra System. The term chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheel” or “circle.” They are the energy centers of the body and they run upwards from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each of the seven chakras have their own energy, color, element, symbol, aroma, and many other characteristics. They can explain so many aspects of who we are by giving insight to our physical, emotional, and/or psychological disorders.
What Are the 7 Chakras?
Location: Base of the spine, near the tailbone.
Aroma: Olibanum, organic patchouli, and vetiver
This is where we get our the ability to ground and take care of our basic needs. When in balance, you may experience good energy, a feeling of security, and a healthy body awareness. Whereas, if it is out of balance then you might experience lethargy, resistance to change, and a need to slow down.
Location: Just below the naval
Aroma: Sandalwood, organic orange, and geranium
This is our center of vitality. It’s the sensation for where we move beyond our basic needs into relationships with others. When you find it in balance, you’ll notice stabilized energy, alertness, unblocked emotions, and connection to all five senses. You may have a sense of repression and disconnection to the senses if it is out of balance.
Solar Plexus Chakra
Location: Solar plexus, between the nest and naval
