Chakra

Chakras are energy points or knots in the subtle body. In Sanskrit the  word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head.

They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. They are associated with our physical, mental, and emotional interactions. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness.

 

 To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called Prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive.

1. Muladhara Chakra – Root Chakra 

The official name of this chakra, Muladhara, comes from the words Mula, which means root and Dhara, which means support.So, this chakra’s role is to connect all of your energy with the Earth, which is called grounding.

Muladhara or root chakra is symbolized by a lotus with four petals and the colour red and represents the element earth. Muladhara Chakra is located at the base of the spine between the anus and the genitals. It is said to relate to the adrenal medulla. 

Muladhara is related to survival, security, stability, ambition, self-sufficiency, also to basic human potentiality. Physically, Muladhara governs sexuality. Mentally, it governs stability.  Emotionally, it governs sensuality. Spritually, it governs a sense of security.

 

This chakra is where the three main Nadis, Ida and Pingala, separate and begin their upward movement - criss-crossing the centers of each chakra, rising up the Sushumna Nadi along the spinal cord until reaching the Right and Left Nostrils. Muladhara has a relation to the sense of Smell.

 When this chakra is out of balance, a person might feel unstable, ungrounded, lack of ambition, lack of purpose, fearful, insecure and frustrated. However when Muladhara Chakra is balanced a person might feel stable, confident, balanced, energetic, independent and strong.

Its attributes are intelligence, intuition, understanding, insight and self-knowledge. When this chakra is out of balance, one might feel non-assertive, afraid of success, or on the contrary, be egoistical. Imbalance of Ajna Chakra can manifest itself on a physical level by headaches, blurry vision and eye strain. When Ajna Chakra is balanced, one is his own master without fear of death and free of attachment to material things.
