Everything in the universe is comprised of energy, including you! We are all made of energy, the universe is the one source of Divine energy which we are all part of, connected to and that which flows through us. The word ‘Chakra’ derives from the Sanskrit meaning ‘wheel’ and literally translated from Hindi tradition it means ‘wheel of spinning energy’. The 7 major chakras are energy centres that connect your spiritual body to your physical body and are like a whirling vortex of energy, they are your powerhouse of energy that governs your physical body. Think of your chakras as invisible rechargeable batteries and the source of charge comes from you being one with the Divine Universal Energy, which is a constant stream of cosmic energy in the atmosphere. This cosmic energy flows through you, energizing your chakra points and regulates the flow of energy throughout your body. Your body has an invisible map of meridian points, which act as an electrical network, connecting all your organs through its electrical current flowing from your Chakras. Each chakra is connected to specific organs and so when out of balance can affect the organs that it corresponds to with possible illness.


YOU HAVE A PHYSICAL BODY AND A SPIRITUAL BODY: Both are energy in different forms, the physical body relies on the energy of the spiritual body to keep it healthy and safe. Your spiritual body is the energy force that flows within your physical body and sometimes chakras can become blocked when the vibration of the energy flow is negative. Prolonged negative energy flow can result in the feeling of being out of balance either emotionally, physically or mentally which can lead to disease.

CHAKRA COLOURS AND MEANING: With the understanding of what a ‘chakra’ is, let’s look at the meaning of each one along with the colour vibration that they hold, the bodies organ that each are connected to; possible symptoms when the chakra is out of balance and how you feel and experience life when they are in balance. There are crystals, affirmations, meditations and healthy living that all assist with balancing your chakra energy.

THOUGHTS ARE ENERGY: Every thought that you have is an energy form and it either has a positive or negative charge that affects your spiritual energy body. Be aware of your thoughts, are they positive or negative? Explore more about thoughts and mindfulness.

BASE -Root Chakra - 1st Chakra

The colour red shows this very important energy centre located at the base of your spine and controls the energy for kinaesthetic feeling and movement, and of the 7 major chakras it is the closest to Mother Earth. Not surprising therefore, its purpose is to connect and ground you to the earth. Think of your day to day physical survival but in this modern age we connect this to financial and emotional security. The root is connected to physical identity and aspect of self, supporting the foundation for living life.

Ways to restore balance to your base/root chakra:  Crystals – red, brown or black in colour are helpful. There are great benefits to connecting to crystals and wearing them near the chakra point or even sitting with them between your legs for as little as 5-10 minutes a day. Physical activities that connect you with nature will help greatly to restore this energy centre. If it’s possible walking in woods, along a beach, gardening or even just emotionally connecting to the great outdoors.
