Awaken Your Energy Through the Chakras
We are energetic beings. We are energy in a physical body. How this energy flows through us has a significant impact on our physical and mental well-being, and in our lives as a whole. You may be familiar with the chakras – or energy centres in the body. Ensuring that our seven main energy centres are activated, open and balanced is essential to our well-being. Below is a simple tip for each chakra to help you feel aligned.
Root Chakra: This is the base of the energy system – our connection to the earth that helps us feel grounded and secure. A simple way to ground yourself is to connect with Mother Earth. Take a walk in nature and enjoy the beauty. If you cannot walk in nature, immerse yourself in the sounds of nature. There are plenty of resources available to listen to the ocean waves or birds chirping. Take some deep breaths and say thank you to Mother Earth for all she has to offer. This will help you feel grounded and open your root chakra.
Sacral Chakra: This energy centre is all about fun, pleasure and movement. The sacral chakra has a strong connection to water and fluidity. We all know that we need to drink lots of water to keep our physical body healthy. This is important for our energetic bodies too, but that is just a simple reminder. A simple way to activate your sacral chakra is to move and have some fun. So… turn up the music and dance! Feel the music, go with the flow and enjoy the energy moving through you! This will help to activate and open your sacral energy centre.
Solar Plexus Chakra: This chakra is our power centre. This is where we feel the fire, where we feel power and strength. Some refer to the solar plexus as the warrior energy. This is where our willpower comes from, as well as our self-esteem. The solar plexus is also the source of our ego. In order to have a balanced solar plexus, we need to step into our power and self-confidence. A simple way to do this is through affirmations. Affirmations are the most powerful when said aloud in front of the mirror. Here is a sample affirmation for you. “I am powerful, strong and have the ability to accomplish anything.” Repeat this affirmation a few times a day to help open your solar plexus chakra.
Heart Chakra: This chakra is all about love. This energy centre is where earth and source energy meet. If your heart chakra is blocked, you may experience anxiety or a feeling of heaviness. Many people have regret, grief, or sadness that is stuck in their heart. It is so important that this energy centre be open and balanced. One of the best and easiest ways to open your heart is through forgiveness. You may need to dig a bit deeper for this or go way back into your past. Or, it might be someone in your life right now that you need to forgive. It may even be yourself that needs and deserves forgiveness. There are a few different ways you can forgive someone, but remember, forgiveness is for YOU, not the person you are forgiving. This exercise is to lighten your heart. You can tell someone you forgive them by simply saying those words face-to-face. Or you can write a letter, a text or an email. You can choose to send them, or delete or destroy them. The point is to find forgiveness in your heart. As you do, you will create space for more love and energy to move through you. Forgive someone and tell someone you love them. Both are good for your heart!
Throat Chakra: As you can probably guess, this energy centre is about communication. It is also about speaking your truth, which connects to your solar plexus, your power. The throat chakra is also associated with creativity. Activate this chakra by getting creative! Creativity lives in many different shapes and forms, so you can choose your medium. Here are a few ideas: Singing a song will really open up your throat chakra. Paint, draw or color some art. Write a poem or a story. Be creative and expressive in whatever you choose to do to open your throat chakra.
Third Eye Chakra: This energy centre is all about your intuition and awareness. If you have trouble sleeping, experience headaches or migraines or have brain fog, chances are that your third eye is blocked. This energy centre is about controlling your mind and your thoughts. Did you know that we have up to 60,000 thoughts per day? 98% of those thoughts are the same as the day before and 89% of those thoughts are negative. How can we start to become aware of and control our thoughts? The best way to start is to not have any thoughts at all. That’s right, we need to quiet our minds. We do this through meditation. You might be thinking that you can’t meditate or that it doesn’t work for you, but that is simply not true. Meditation might take some practice, but everyone can do it. There are plenty of short, guided meditations available for you to follow. Find one that you like and give your mind a break!
Crown Chakra: This energy centre is our connection to our higher selves, to a higher level of consciousness, to source energy, to our Creator, to God, to the Universe. To connect and open this energy centre today, we focus on prayer. Prayer is not about religion, although this is often what prayer is associated with. In actuality, prayer is all about love. Love is the highest vibration of energy and allows us to be connected with ourselves, our higher power, other beings and the Universe. Love is connection. Prayer is connection. To activate and open your crown chakra, say a simple prayer for yourself or someone else. If you are not comfortable with prayer, then express gratitude to someone or something. List five things you are grateful for. Gratitude also raises your energetic vibration. Be sure to share your love and gratitude today and always!
