Energy is the frequency of the world.

It can be said that aligning and opening your chakras is the key to finding inner peace, ultimate happiness, and eventual enlightenment. Chakras are energetic focal points in the human body that are used in an array of meditation techniques in the esoteric traditions of Indian religions and used in holistic healing and modern, new age thought and psychology. With aligned and tuned chakras, you can experience the world energetically, as we as divine beings were meant too.

You can understand the chakras as circular spinning vortexes that work with 7 different energy compartments that center up and down your body. These energetic centers through which life force flows are an integral part of how we process emotions, vibrational frequencies, and higher consciousness.

A closed chakra can lead to creative, spiritual, emotional, and energetic blockages, as well as physically manifested illnesses. The 7 chakra centers in your body start at the base of your spine and work all the way up to the top of your head. A healthy, well-adjusted human being has exactly the right amount of energy moving through every part of their body, mind, and spirit.

In order to transform your life, you must balance, open, and heal each of your 7 chakras.

To open your chakras, you must acknowledge that you are aware of their energies. Partaking in grounding exercises, such as yoga, swimming, or simply walking in nature, as you visualize each chakra can help you become more aware of their presence. Meditation and visualization is another way in which you can open your chakras. Focusing on the colors of each chakra can also help you realize the energies.

To heal your chakras, you can use elements such as crystals and incense aromatherapy, along with your meditation and visualization techniques to open them. Using affirmations can also help heal and cleanse your chakras. Using tarot cards, might help you locate what chakra needs the most aid. You can also simply get a lot of natural sunlight, and monitor the types of foods you eat. Drink herbaceous teas, such as chamomile and sage tea to soothe the chakras. To balance and tune your chakras, you can use Meditative Music and Healing Sounds with a certain amount of frequency in hertz in alignment with Pranayama Breathing techniques.

Now that you have some resources on how to open, heal, and balance your chakras, read through the following list of where each chakra is found, how they function, and how you may be affected if any of your chakras are closed or wounded.

1.ROOT CHAKRA (RED)

The root chakra or the 1st Chakra is placed at the base of your spinal cord, or your lower vertebrae, and behind your pelvic area.

The energy that it works with is of the earth, so it deals with feeling physically grounding and connecting to all things energetically. It affects our sense of security, survival, courage, natural instincts, and making sure that our basic needs of, food, water, shelter, and self-preservation is intact.

Someone who does not care for either of these things most likely has a weakly activated root chakra. With this chakra balanced, opened, and healed, one can better maintain financial security and the ability to smoothly manifest desires in a very physical way.

With this chakra closed, one might have issues with utilizing common sense, the ability to get grounded when under pressure, or have the bad habit of lashing out and not controlling their thoughts, feelings, impulses, anger, fears, and emotions.

Affirmation: "I am a divine being of light, and I am peaceful, protected and secure."
