You’ve probably heard the term “chakras” thrown around at yoga class or when people talk about meditation, but if you were like me, you might not know what it all means. The term chakra actually translates to wheel in Sanskrit and it refers to the wheels of energy throughout the body. Yup, you have spinning wheels that center and surround your body. This is where consciousness and energy meet. Like on a date (but not). People call this energy Prana. It’s pretty important too, and you have to take care of these chakras if you want to live a healthier, happier life.

Let's talk about the seven main chakras. They run from the base of your spine to the top of your head. Nerd alert: If you’ve seen Doctor Strange, they look like those spinning discs he creates, but in different colors.

In my video, I share a metaphor of a chakra and a clogged toilet. (Watch here) No one likes a clogged toilet… or chakra. It’s a mess. It leads to crappy feelings and crappier results. You might feel off, your head might be a little fuzzy (and not from the wine), you find it hard to express your emotions, there's a lot of negative self talk, or you might even get sick.

I know when my chakras are clogged I start to feel stuck and depressed. My self doubt comes out full swing and I’m back to playing the same old dysfunctional records I thought I was done with. Bring out the violin, I’m about to play the “woe is me” song.  There are many side effect of blocked or unbalanced chakras and important to deal with these block if you want to live a fuller more vibrant life.

Depending on which of your chakras is clogged, you’ll have different exercises or rituals to do. Once you establish what's affecting you, you can work specifically with the vibration of that chakra and restore its energy. So remember to shift your awareness to the chakra you want to work with. You can open each one and align it to keep your energy flowing freely. I’ll go into more detail next time on each chakra and how to keep them balanced and healthy so stay tuned!
