We are beings made of light, love, and reason which is made up of pure energy. This life energy is called prana. Our thoughts control the prana flow around us and within us. Our moods and feelings are influenced by our thoughts that happen in our life from day to day. If we think about bills, relationships, or spirituality it can affect our energy centers. These energy centers are called chakras. We have 7 major chakras that connect our physical body with our spirit. There are many more chakras but we will focus on the main 7. Your chakras radiate and receive energy constantly. If you hold negative thoughts, your chakras will become off balance and you won't feel good. If you base your thoughts in love and faith, your energy and life will flow smoothly. We want our chakras to be clear and unblocked. If our chakras are blocked it can lead to illness, disease, anger, depression, disorders, stress, infertility, emotional problems, etc. Lets learn about our chakras and keep them healthy. Crystals, rocks, and stones can help heal your chakras. Chakras spin in a clockwise position. They spin just like a fan. Below is a picture of where your chakras are located on your body.
Root Chakra- 1st Chakra Its located at the base of your spine, a healthy root chakra spins at the slowest rate and creates a color red. Our root chakra connects us to the earth and the physical world we live in. Its our need for survival. Your root chakra relates to your physical security. This chakra is affected by your physical needs. When you think about finances, bills, career choice, your living situations, your physical needs (food, clothes, providing for family), and your physical possessions (car, home, jewelry) are all affecting your root chakra. Fears to having your physical needs met create your root chakra to be off balance. Obsessions about money, career, and material wants create your root chakra to become off and not healthy. There is nothing wrong with having a great career, alot of money and wants but to let it run your life creates a unhealthy energy for your root chakra. When our root chakra is not healthy it spins at a dark red color.

Sacral Chakra- 2nd Chakra The second chakra is located between your navel and the base of your spine. It spins faster then your root chakra and a healthy sacral chakra creates a orange color. This chakra is affected by your physical pleasures not needs. Whether it be food, drinks, sex, or creativity. If you have an addiction to drugs, alcohol, food, cigarettes, and other substances affects your sacral chakra. Also your thoughts about body image, exercise habits, sleep patterns, weight, health, and physical appearance affects this chakra. If your are worried or stressed about any issue concerning your body your sacral chakra will be off balance. Also if your obsessed with your body image this will affect your sacral chakra.

Solar Plexus Chakra- 3rd Chakra The solar plexus chakra is located 2 inches above the navel. The first 3 chakras can overlap but in the diagram it is not shown that way. This chakra spins even faster and creates a bright yellow color. The solar plexus chakra is affected by willpower, ambition and action. It is weakened by all forms of shame, embarrassment and self-consciousness. It is your feelings of self worth/esteem. If you fear that others are trying to overpower or control you, your solar plexus will be small and dark yellow. If you have obsessions about gaining power and control this chakra will be enlarged and off balance. Anger is a result of an imbalance in solar plexus chakra. Our self-esteem is low, smaller things upset us, our work, relationships, and health suffer on that account.

Heart Chakra- 4th Chakra The heart chakra is located in the center of the chest and spins even faster to create the color green. This chakra represents the beginnings of the upper chakras. The upper chakras are focused on spiritual issues and the lower chakras are focused on physical and material issues. The heart chakra is affected by any kind of relationship, love, people attachments, forgiveness. Everyone has some fears about true intimacy with another person. Most likely because they experienced pain in a love relationship. We then associate love with pain. We create blocks in our heart chakra to prevent ourselves from losing control and feeling love deeply. We don't want to be hurt again so we close ourselves up to love. Love is the source from the divine. Our spirit craves and needs love. Love is what heals. To block love is creating a very unhealthy heart chakra. The heart chakra connects our spirituality to our physical bodies . The more we open our heart the more our intuition will be accurate.
