Over the next few weeks, we’re talking about the chakra health. For those new to the concept, we’ll explain a little about them, how to tell when they are blocked or plugged and how to fix the problem.
The word chakra comes from Sanskrit and means wheel of light. Chakras are power points in the human body that circulate Chi. They align in the body close to the spine starting at the tailbone and ending at the top of the head. These swirling disks of energy affect and regulate us physically, mentally emotionally and spiritually.
Properly aligned chakras allow energy to flow freely through us. This is important because everything in our bodies is in motion, We must keep the seven main chakras open and fluid. One of the signs our chakras are aligned and working properly is a bright aura.
If they’re unbalanced or blocked it can affect us physically and even mentally. Often the symptoms of a blocked chakra is a dull and lifeless looking aura. Unbalanced chakras can also show themselves in our physical bodies.
Let’s say you lose a job you love. You try to suck it up and be brave but then you develop bronchitis. Soon this turns to chest pain which is bad for the heart. You are manifesting the pain and blockage you feel from your heart chakra.
The first key to aligning your chakras is to be aware of them. The simple act of placing your attention on them will start the process toward balance. Now let’s look at each Chakra. We’ll find out what the symptoms of misalignment are and how to bring them back to health.
The first chakra is the Root Chakra or Muladhara. It’s located at the base of the spine. Its color is red and its element is earth.
This is the chakra of stability and security. Physically it’s responsible for the bladder and colon.
When it’s open we feel safe and brave in our world.

- You struggle with debt and lack of money.
- You carry a sense of not being worthy and not belonging.
