What are the Chakras

In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, the term chakra refers to wheels of energy throughout the body.

There are seven main chakras that align along the spine, starting from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.

Chakras store the energy of thoughts, feelings, memories, experiences, and actions.

Chakra healing refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the body, mind, and spirit, creating a sense of overall well-being.

Let’s dig in.

Solar Plexus Chakra

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the center of personal power, self-esteem, willpower, and self-discipline. 

Universal Color: Yellow

Element: Fire

Open Chakra:   You have a strong sense of your own authentic power and how to use it in healthy ways. You use your power and influence for good in the world.  You exude confidence (without being arrogant), feel self-motivated, and have a sense of purpose.  Blocked Chakra:   You give your power to others in an effort to keep the image of peace. You easily take on other people’s energy.  You feel blocked, unable to act or move.  You suffer from low self-esteem, have trouble making decisions, and have control issues.
