Breaking Down the Chakras

Post  witchx on Sun Jan 08, 2012 10:49 pm

In each and every one of us, we have Seven main chakras within our bodies. Each chakra is linked to aiding different aspects of our lives and they each can work individually, while it is encouraged to try and meditate and ground yourself, become one with the Universe and address all your chakras at once to be able to activate them all. When we are truly enlightened, we can simply "feel" that our chakras are aligned, and this is when the best times for us to do spiritual work are, these are when we are truly destined to send and receive energy with the Universe, and the people in it. Below, I have listed every one of main Chakras with a description of each one. In each description, I have listed where the chakra is loacted, what it does, imbalances in the chakra, what to do to stimulate the chakra, and a list of Gemstones to stimulate that particular chakra.

Root Chakra (Muladhara)

This is the base chakra, it is located at the base of the spine and it allows us to be bound to Universe and grounded so we are then able to connect to the energies around us. This chakra is our most primal of them all. With this chakra, we are able to survive. It allows us to tap into our primal instincts. Without this, we would be quite vulnerable as a species and susceptible to harmful forces. We are able to stand up for what we believe in and are able to accomplish things in our physical world. Imbalances of this chakra inclue anemia, fatigue, lower pain pain, frequent cold hands/feet. Getting physical exercise and restful sleeping stimulate the Root. Gemstones that are known to be aids to our Root Chakra include; lodestone, rubies, garnet, smokey quartz, obsidian, hematite, and onyx.

Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana)
This chakra is located beneath the navel, close to the genitals. The Sacral Chakra is linked to our sexual organs and our reproductive system. We all experience imbalances in this chakra during certain times of our life. Impalances of the Sacral Chakra include, but are not limited to, depression, lower back pain, urinary tract infections, yeast infections in women, and sensuality issues along with impotency. Hot baths and massage are ways to stimulate this particular chakra. The Sacral enables us to be sociable with the other beings around us. Could you imagine being without intimacy? This chakra is designed for us to be intimate and to interact with each other as we are meant to. Communication is a very important part of today's society and it enables us to communicate. The use of this chakra will allow you to become fertile, and it is also linked to creativity. The Sacral chakra stimulates one's sexuality and their emotions. Gemstones known to aid include; carnelian, coral, orange jasper, and orange jade.

Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
This chakra is located in the stomach area and is linked to the organs and muscles located within that region of the body. The Solar Plexus is usually representative of our vitality and will as human beings. When this chakra is active, it is often trying to act to empower the person and give them the sense of "where there's a will, there's a way", giving them an optimistic attitude towards a current situation. Imbalances in this chakra include digestive problems, ulcers, constipation, poor memory, and nervousness. Ways to stimulate this chakra include taking classes, participating in detoxification programs, reading informative books, and doing mind puzzles, such as a crossword. This chakra allows us to have self-control. Without self-control, the world would be a pretty insane place to live, as if it already weren't extreme. We are able to balance our intellect with this chakra, have you heard the saying, "there is a fine line between genius and insanity"? That statement is true, and it is due to our Solar Plexus that we are able to maintain at least a little bit of discretion between our many intellects. This chakra gives dreams the chance to become one's reality. The gemstones that aid our Solar Plexus include; amber, topaz, citrine, yellow calcite, and yellow jasper.

Heart Chakra (Anahata)
This chakra is located in the center of the chest and is linked to everything in the area such as our lungs, circulatory system, and our cardiac plexus. It has been stated that the Heart Chakra bridges the gap between the physical and spiritual world. Imbalances with this chakra include heart and breathing disorders, such as athsma, heart and breast cancer, chest pains, high blood pressure, immune system problems, and muscular tension. Ways to stimulate this chakra include going on nature walks and spending time with family and friends. When this chakra is active, it allows one to be loving, empathetic, and compassionate. This chakra allows us to be accepting of ourselves and of others, and allows us to love without question, as we so should. Gemstones aiding this chakra are; emerald, tourmaline, adventurine, malachite, rose quartz, rhodonite, and rhodochrosite.

Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
Quite simply, our Throat Chakra is located in our throat. However, it is linked not only to our throats but to our neck, hands, and arms as well. This chakra is connected to speech and hearing, and helps with communication spiritually. This chakra allows us to speak more clearly, allowing oneself to become heard. This chakra, much like the Sacral Chakra, is meant to aid us with communication, except our Throat Chakra is directly related to our speech, which is the most common method of communication between individuals. This chakra also gives us the ability to trust, remain loyal, and gives us a sense of planning and organization. Without trust, we would have nothing. Every relationship, whether it should be so black and white or not, is founded solely on trust. One cannot have a solid, true relationship with another unless they have trust and are able to remain loyal as well. Imbalances in this chakra include thyroid problems, swollen glands, fever, flu, hyperactivity, mood swings, PMS, and menopause. Ways to stimulate this chakra is singing in the shower, poetry, and having meaningful conversations. When this chakra is active, it has a tendency to improve clairaudience. Gemstones in aid to the Throat Chakra are; turquoise, aquamarine, lapis, sodalite, quartz, angelite, and aqua aura.

Third-Eye Chakra (Ajna)
The Third-Eye Chakra is located in the center of the forehead, or between the eyes. This chakra is linked to Universal unconsciousness. With this chakra, one is able to realize things about themselves. Once a person realizes this chakra is open and active, they often realize that they are psychic. Now, thanks to realizing your psychic abilities, you can begin to develop them. You have to learn to trust your instincts and intuition. Always go with your gut, you have to be sure to trust within yourself. Imbalances in this chakra include learning disabilities, coordination problems, and sleep disorders. Ways to stimulate this chakra are to go star gazing, and to meditate. When this chakra is active, it allows us to see things more clearly and opens our eyes in a sense to allow us to see things from a different perspective, and in a new light, so to speak. Gemstones aiding this chakra include; amethyst, moonstone, and augilite.

Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
The Crown Chakra is located on the top of the head. It is linked the the crown of the head, the nervous system, and the brain. This chakra is representative of pure thought. This chakra is the greatest of them all, as when it is active it represents infinite consciousness. We are all believed to be connected as one, in many religions this would remain true, and with Paganism and especially when psychic abilities come into play, the Crown chakra connects everyone and all energies, thanks to the simplicity of general "thought". Imbalances in this chakra include headaches, mental illness, varicose veins, right/left brain problems, and epilepsy. Ways to stimulate this chakra are to focus on your dreaming and write down your visions and creations. I believe if we had mentally ill child draw what he sees, we would be able to tell a lot about the Universe. Mentally ill people ARE part of the Universe, and we are all connected as One Divine being. It is amazing to think about how they see the world, and most importantly, how they can help us see the world as well. This chakra has an ability to show a person deep spiritual understanding. Gemstones that aid this chakra are; diamonds and clear crystal quartz.

Great article, Kylie! Very in depth and informational. I have always been fascinated by the chakras, even back when I studied with the Jehovah's Witnesses lol Guess I've always been a Pagan at heart. x]

I really loved this article. You included a very wide spectrum of each chakra's attributes, which I find very helpful.

There was even a little bit of information in each of the chakra sections that I didnt know.

I especially like that you included methods of stimulating each chakra, Im sure we can all benefit from those suggestions.
