The chakra system and how it affects our life

Uppdaterat: 23 nov. 2021

The chakras are like our energy doors, that are located in our body along the spine. Through our chakras we received and send information from and to our environment. The Chakras affect how we feel, how we perceive and handle the information that we received from our surroundings and viceversa. That is why the chakras are very important part of our understanding and personal development as well as our spiritual development. Through them can we see what part of us and of our life we need to work on. Most people of the Western world lives in their lower three chakras, but there are many more things to achieve in the other upper 4 chakras. In other words, to function optimally, all the chakras must be opened and balanced.

The chakra system

The chakra system refers to 7 spiritual energy centers which are situated in our body.

Chakra in Sanskrit means “wheel” and it’s a concept in Tibetan Buddhism among others. These energy centers are situated along the spine of the human body all the way to the top of the head. Every chakra has its own color and vibration frequency. The chakras control our emotions, from our self-esteem and survival instincts, to our ability to experience love and to communicate.

There are seven major chakras, each in a specific location along your spine. Let’s take a look at each chakra more closely.

The first chakra is the root chakra or Muladhara. This chakra is located at the base of our spine. This is the chakra that symbolizes security, stability, our basic needs and our physical body. It provides us with a foundation for life, and it even helps us feel grounded and able to resist challenges.
