The entire universe is made of energy, and this includes your body!
The energy centers in us are called chakras, from an old sanskrit word meaning wheel.
What are your chakras and how do we keep them balanced?
Chakras are energy centers located along your spine and head. There are seven main chakras, known as the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras. They each correspond to specific organs as well as physically, emotionally, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency and color associated with it.
Depending on which chakra is of balance you may be depressed, moody, find it hard to concentrate and focus, experience headaches or dizziness, and generally be feeling off. But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to balance your chakras!

Unsure of which chakra might be blocked? Here’s a quick breakdown of each of the 7 chakras and how to tell when they are unbalanced.
Root Chakra: Located at the base of your spine, when blocked you may have anxiety, fears, or nightmares. Physically, problems associated with the root chakra occur in the colon, with the bladder, lower back, legs and feet.
Sacral Chakra: Located in the pelvic area, it is often referred to as the sex chakra. If it’s misaligned it leaves you feeling uninspired creatively o emotional instability. It can also be associated with physical sexual disfunction, while also potentially experiencing fear of change, depression, or addiction-like behaviors.
Solar Plexus Chakra: Located from the navel to about the ribcage, it ‘s responsible for all things metabolic, digestive, and stomach-related. You can suffer from stomach aches, low self-esteem, have difficulty making decisions, and may have anger or control issues.
Heart Chakra: Located at the center of your chest. When the heart chakra is blocked you can experience grief, anger, jealousy, fear of betrayal, and hatred toward yourself and others. Not the vibes you want!
Throat Chakra: Not so shockingly located in your throat! When blocked, you may have trouble expressing emotions, speaking your truth, lack of focus, or fear judgment from others. Physically, this blockage can manifest itself as digestive issues, a sore throat, thyroid issues, neck and shoulder stiffness, or tension headaches.
Third Eye Chakra: Located on the forehead just above your eyes. When misaligned you may have trouble accessing your intuition, trusting your inner voice, recalling important facts, or learning new skills. And if your lower chakras—AKA the root, sacral, solar plexus, and heart chakras—and are unbalanced, your third eye will likely be as well, which may cause you to act more judgmental, dismissive, and introverted. A third-eye blockage is associated with a broad range of issues, including depression, anxiety, and a more judgmental attitude—while physically, it’s said to cause headaches, dizziness, or sinus problems.
Crown Chakra: Located at the top of your head. When blocked you can have feelings of isolation or emotional distress—basically feeling disconnected from everyone and everything. Physically you can feel uncoordinated or experience headaches.
Hope everyone is feeling balanced, happy and healthy!
