What Are Chakras?

The concept of chakras has been around for centuries and remains useful today for achieving balance and harmony within our bodies and lives. Chakras are said to be the seven energy points that impact our physical and emotional well-being. The 7 main chakras can be found from the base of your spine to the top of your head, and keeping these chakras unblocked means there will be harmony between your body, mind, and spirit.

The 7 Main Chakras And The Colors Associated With Them

While it’s true that taking care of your physical body is one of the most important things you can do for yourself, understanding the chakras and learning how to balance and unblock them also plays a vital role in maintaining not just your physical, but your emotional and spiritual health as well. 

Each of the seven main chakras is connected to different aspects of our well-being and affect us in different ways. When one or more of the chakras become unbalanced, it can lead to physical, mental or emotional issues. Understanding how each chakra interacts with each other, how to identify any possible imbalances, and how to address them can help you understand yourself better.

The 7 main chakras are: Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra.

Why Do Chakras Have Colors?

Every chakra emits a distinct frequency and wavelength, and there is a specific color that compliments each chakra’s vibration and is said to affect the body differently. These colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. (Yes, like the colors of the rainbow.) These colors are believed to influence the chakras' ability to absorb, store, and emit energy. The seven colors of the chakras are often seen as a guide to help us become more in tune with our inner selves and to restore balance in our lives.
