You are 99.999% energy. So often we think of our bodies as a physical mass. The fact is, we are mostly energy. There are seven energy centers in our bodies sometimes called chakras. Chakras are wheels of light connecting our energy body to our physical. Let’s take a quick tour of the chakras and see why it’s so important to clear your chakras.
The Chakras of Your Rainbow Body
Did you know you have a rainbow body? When your energy is clear, you are
filled with color and light. Each color is associated with a different chakra and area of the body. The chakras connect directly into the nervous system and endocrine system.
Violet — Crown Chakra
The Crown Chakra is associated with the color violet and the crown of the head on your physical body. When your crown chakra is balanced, you feel connected to spirit and at peace with yourself and the universe.
Indigo — Third Eye
The Third Eye Chakra is the seat of intuition found just above the brow/bridge of the nose and between the eyes. It’s associated with the color indigo. If you have trouble concentrating or feel disconnected, it could be your Third Eye Chakra. When clear and balanced, you intuit things and get in the flow easily, you see possibilities.
Blue — Throat Chakra
The Throat Chakra is important for communication. Associated with the color blue, it’s located at the base of the throat and connected to both the thyroid and parathyroid glands. If you have trouble speaking your truth, your Throat Chakra may need some attention.
Green — Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is all about giving and receiving love; universal healing love. We tap into the Heart Chakra often in meditation. Though we often associate hearts with red, the Heart Chakra is associated with the color green. Think of compassion, unconditional love, nurturing, and forgiving, creativity. If you fear rejection, find relationships challenging, have trouble giving or receiving love, give your Heart Chakra some attention.
Yellow — Solar Plexus
The Solar Plexus is the seat of self-esteem and power. It sits below the Heart Chakra in the solar plexus and is associated with yellow. When your Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced and clear, your self-esteem and self-respect are strong. When it’s blocked, you may feel insecure or be overly concerned with what people think.
Orange — Sacral Chakra
The Sacral Chakra lies a bit below the belly button and is the center of desire and creation. Feelings of overwhelm, anxiety/fear, frustration, and guilt can sit in a stagnant sacral chakra. Physical weakness and low energy could be helped by sacral chakra clearing.
Red — Root Chakra
The Root Chakra sits at the base of the spine and is connected to survival. It is the foundation for the other chakras. Your Root Chakra helps you feel safe and grounded. When your Root Chakra is balanced and clear, you have a sense of abundance and trust that you are supported and your needs met.
So there you are. Your rainbow body — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
That’s just a quick overview of the impact of each of these energy centers. There’s so much more to explore and know about your chakras.
3 Reasons to Clear Chakras
Knowing what your chakras are and what they do, leads us to why we clear them!
Let your light shine. We talked about each chakra being connected to a different color light. Have you ever looked at a fire through a dirty glass door on a wood stove? Or seen a candle in a sooty glass? When you clear the glass, the light shines more clearly and brightly. Imagine you are a lighthouse. Wouldn’t you want your light to shine as far and bright as it could?
Update your operating system. We get downloads from the divine all the time. It helps to have your systems running optimally. Think about clearing your chakras like updating your operating system, a debugging or defrag for your being, keeping everything up to date and working well.
Be your best self. In our overview of the chakras, we looked at some of the ways blocked chakras show up — and what can happen when chakras are clear and balanced. Clearing chakras can help you connect more deeply with spirit, tap into your intuition, communicate, give and receive love, feel confident and able to create, feel secure and safe.
