Muladhara The Root Chakra
Muladhara the root chakra is the first of our chakras. Its energy is based on the earth element.It’s associated with the feeling of safety and being grounding.

Svadhisthana the Sacral Chakra
Svadhisthana energy is linked to post formative years. This is the time when we begin to develop our unique individuality. Svadhisthana energy allows us to realise we are a separate entity. We learn that we are distinct from our parents and family.During this time we are utilizing Svadhisthana energy. This stage of our development we begin to recognise the absolute polarity of opposites: Male and Female, Positive and Negative (similar to the Tao, or Yin-Yang).Relationships with the opposite/same sex are explored within Svadhisthana energy. Blockages, imbalance or damage of the Svadhisthana chakra will be evident through inner feelings of insecurity. Lack of balance in the Sacral is externalized by acts of sexual jealousy, betrayal, control and power plays. Those who have Sacral imbalance have often experienced trauma during development of their individuality. This stems from feelings of being overshadowed, put down, ignored and rejected by protector figures. Protectors are the people who the individual had bestowed with great love, trust or affection. And those who they expected would return the same.In adulthood we continue to utilize all 7 Chakra Energies. Therefore imbalance in a chakra may occur at any age. If Svadhisthana imbalance occurs it can lead to self-enforced social isolation and feelings of inadequacy. Sacral energy flow left unchecked can lead to severe and restrictive depressive illness.

Manipura the Solar Plexus Chakra
Manipura is the chakra that connects us with the energy to take action. The Solar Plexus controls and reinforces our worth, our self-esteem and the way we express our personal power.
In adulthood Manipura is the energy centre responsible for our relationship with external influences. Manipura determines how we see the world around us and controls our belief about our place within it.Solar Plexus energy is responsible for our ability to love who we are. Manipura allows us the develop the attributes of self-honoring. It brings the self realization that you must give time and energy to yourself. Without self love and acceptance of personal worth it makes it impossible to understand how to give appropriate love to others. Through Manipura energy we develop our internal relationships of self-empowerment, integrity and self-respect. A healthy Manipura chakra honors and embeds the emotions of warmth, intellectual understanding and self-confidence. This is the energy which allows us to formulate the individual conceptual awareness of persona. Manipura energy determines how we see the world, how we see our place in the world and how we choose to express our personal individuality to the world.Imbalance or blockages in Manipura amplify existing issues within Swadhisthana and Muladhara. This may include fear of rejection or being over sensitivity to criticism leading to the need to exert power over others. Another indication of imbalance within the Solar Plexus Chakra are uncontrolled, usually short lived, temper explosions. Solar Plexus imbalance may lead to individuals becoming overly demanding, blaming of others or developing highly judgmental attitudes. They may also revert to self-destructive thought patterns. These feelings and thoughts may be externalized by a perceived lack of recognition, being aloof or having a fear of change and things new. This ultimately leads to low energy and personal confusion about which choices to make and which direction to take in life. This can become a vicious cycle. Self destructive thoughts impact our ability to make choices. This then confirms our belief in the self destructive thoughts leading to a further lowering of self-esteem.

Anahata the Heart Chakra
When Anahata is balanced and open we are able to love, accept love and forgive those who have in anyway mistreated or done us wrong. Physically our lungs are clear and our immune systems are healthy. Having Anahata in balance and healthy is vital. Until we achieve balance within Anahata the higher vibrational chakras cannot be accessed. To access the higher, more spiritual energies, they must initially flow through Anahata. Only a fully functioning heart chakra is able to deliver the purity of energy required at the higher levels.Imbalance, blockages and damages to Anahata is what is commonly referred to as having a “Heavy Heart”. In energetic terms the vibration is dense. This imbalance is usually through storing and retention of negative emotion that no longer serve our best interest. A Heavy Heart is caused through resentment and anger. This stems from us denying our true thoughts, feelings and emotions further compounded by self loathing and guilt for not being honest with ourselves and others. Individuals suffering an imbalance or blockage in Anahata should find methods to release these stored and trapped emotion. A Heavy Heart is not punishment or recognition of any personal wrongdoing. It is a consequence of past hurt and negative emotional experiences. Of critical importance is that you accept and release. Do not continue to suppress these, or any further, negative emotion. Open your heart and accept their existence. Trapped negative energy and heavy emotion will be resolved when you forgive yourself and others. Forgiveness and love allows them to surface, enabling healing and the ability to fall in love with yourself. Imbalance in Anahata and holding heavy energy leads to bitterness and the inability to forgive (yourself or others). How someone externally display love of self is ultimately how love will be reflected back to them. It must be one of the most difficult lessons in human existence. We can not control the emotions of others, we can only control our own. We can not make someone love us, we can only control the way we love ourself.Anahata provides the energy required to correct imbalance. Balance is restored when you have a true sense of self-love. Forgive yourself and accept you are a beautiful and deserving person. Find out how to balance Anahata:
Vishuddha the Throat Chakra
It is through Vishuddha that we clarify what we want in life. A healthy throat chakra ensures your voice is clear and resonates with truth. Your words are communicated with conviction and sincerity. With Vishuddha your voice will portray your trustworthiness and honesty of intent.Blockages and imbalance in Vishuddha makes it difficult to communicate. We find that no matter how hard we try to communicate clearly we are unable to express what we want in the way that we want. We feel our voice is suppressed and swallowed by unrecognised emotion and feeling. Vishuddha out of balance offers a voice which is weak. Communication is disordered and comes across as unclear or confused.
When balanced and functioning Vishuddha enhances the energy of integrity. The Throat Chakra is located between the heart and the head for the purpose of storing the vibrational energy required to maintain integrity. Vishuddha enables us to balance what we think (head) and what we feel (heart). Thereby allowing us to communicate reasoned and logical viewpoints, to speak our truths and to ensure we express this with integrity. What we say, what we communicate and how we express our truth will either empower or disempower. Vishuddha brings us the energy and ability of Self-empowerment and empowerment of others.Find out more:
Ajna the Third Eye Chakra
Our intuition and our ability to see the truth comes from Ajna. Ajna is the center of divine wisdom. Often referred to as the third eye, or the spiritual eye, this energy is the motivation for us starting to seek and know the truth in all things. It is at this stage of Kundalini progressing up the Central Nadi, using the energy of Ajna, that we close our physical eyes. We now look at the world, not just through the physical but also the energetic and spiritual. We are more open to exploring the spiritual aspects of self and trusting in our intuition to guide us.In Balance Ajna the Third Eye allows us the ability to correctly perceive influences from the outer world. Ajna allows us to accept it as ours, heal and love it.Blockages or imbalance in Ajna may cause individuals to overly worry about issues. They may suffer from poor concentration, have memory issues and can become delusional. If not rectified this leads to a lowering of self-esteem may lead to the individual being labelled by others as unimaginative, indifferent and uncaring towards others and themselves. Find Out More:
Sahasrara the Crown Chakra
Sahasrara, or the crown chakra, is located on the top of the head. The Crown Chakra spins very quickly and is represented as a 1000 petal lotus. The 1000 petal lotus Sahasrara is our direct connection to the Divine (or God). Through Sahasrara we receive guidance directly from the Divine. This Divine Universal energy enters our Nadi, Subtle and Physical Body system through Sahasrara.
It is similar to the way physical life force energy enters via Muladhara the Root Chakra. The difference being that Divine Universal energy moves down the Central Nadi passing through the other energy centers and finishing at the root chakra. This completes a full flow of energies within the Nadi. Very much like connecting an energy circuit. In fact this is where the symbol for infinity comes from. It is the representative flow of energies with the body.Blockages within Sahasrara can cause extreme confusion and severe bouts of unexplained depression. Individuals may lose faith in themselves leading to a fear of success and without ability to change or develop. A blocked or unbalanced Sahasrara prevents energy flowing up from the lower 6. It also denies, and ultimately stops, the flow of energy from and connection with the Divine. If this happens, as you can imagine, there is an extreme response. The externalization of a blocked Crown Chakra can be identified by two possible scenarios.Either the individual overly compensates for the lack of Divine connection and develops a spiritual addiction. They become overzealous and radicalized as well as developing a dissociation with the physical world. Or they amplify physical energy connections and become over intellectualizing, over analytical and develop extreme antagonistic feelings about religion and established belief systems. Find Out More:
