The Vital Energy Centers: Introduction to the 7 Major Chakras

Chakra is an Indian Sanskrit word that translates to circle meant as endless rotation or cycle, vortex or spinning or turning energy.

Chakras are considered to be the location of life energy or prana, also called in various cultures shakti (Hindi), qi (Chinese), ki (Japanese), koach-ha-gui (Hebrew), bios (Greek), and aether (English).

What are Chakras?

Living things are made of energy, with a central driving force that creates fields of vibrational waves; swirling vortices aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. They are dynamic, evolving and luminescent, like fluid whirlpools of light that are constantly moving and changing.

This vital force energy flows along pathways in the same way positive and negative energy flows through electrical circuits. These pathways correspond to massive nerve centers in the body, so if there is a blockage, vital energy does not flow easily.

Energy moves through the entire body from the chakras, all of which are connected by a channel that travels up the center of the spine and around the brain, and this energy impacts our thoughts, moods and health.

There are 7 major physical chakras, 5 major metaphysical chakras and numerous minor chakras. In ascending order, the 7 major physical chakras are:

1. Base or Root Chakra: Muladhara (Support)

The root chakra grounds you to stability. This includes your basic needs such as food, shelter and safety, as well as your emotional needs. When these needs are met, you feel grounded and safe and you tend to worry less. Balancing the root chakra creates the solid foundation for opening the chakras above it.

The root chakra is located at the base of the spine (perineum) and encompasses the first three vertebrae, the bladder and the colon. It’s associated with physical survival and earthly grounding, legs, feet, bones, large intestine, adrenal glands, and fight or flight response.

Blockages may manifest as paranoia, fear, procrastination, anxiety disorders, nightmares, and defensiveness.

An imbalance may cause problems with the colon, bladder, elimination, prostate, lower back, legs, or feet. Eating disorders may also be a sign of a root chakra imbalance.

The sense organ that corresponds to the first chakra is smell. While meditating, focus on the tip of your nose to help align the root.

2. Sacral or Naval Chakra: Svadhisthana (Creativity and Sexuality)

The word svadhisthana can be translated as dwelling place of the self, and its element is water, which equals cohesiveness.

This chakra is our creativity and sexual center. It is located above the pubic bone, between the base of the spine and the navel, and is responsible for our creative expression. It’s associated with the lower abdomen, kidneys, circulatory system, reproductive organs, emotion, desire, pleasure, sexuality, and procreation.

Blockages may manifest as compulsive or obsessive behavior, unhealthy indulgence of fantasy, sexual guilt or dysfunction, emotional instability, fear of change, depression, or addictions.

A balanced second chakra leads to feelings of wellness, abundance, pleasure, and joy, personal magnetism, and refinement in behavior.

As humans, it is part of our nature to create. This creativity can be expressed as procreation, cooking, gardening, building, singing, writing, or anything else when we take raw materials, physical or mental, and transform them into something new.

You can open this chakra with creative expression and by honoring and respecting your body. The energy of this chakra is feminine, passive, and lunar.

3. Solar Plexus Chakra: Manipura (Warrior Energy)

Manipura means lustrous gem. The third chakra is our source of personal power and governs self-esteem, warrior energy and the power of transformation.

It’s the area from the navel to the breastbone and is associated with metabolism and the digestive system, muscles, pancreas, and adrenal glands, laughter, joy, sensitivity, ambition, and ability to achieve.

Blockages may manifest as anger, frustration, low self-esteem, excessive greed, an overwhelming drive for personal power, control issues, lack of direction, difficulty making decisions, or a sense of victimization.

When you feel self-confident, have a strong sense of purpose, clear goals and intentions and are self-motivated, your third chakra is open and healthy. Each small step you take while honoring the larger intention helps to strengthen your third chakra.

If you find you are stuck with a decision or are at a crossroads and aren’t sure which way to go, look to a gut feeling in your solar plexus for guidance.

4. Heart Chakra: Anahata (Pure Place beyond Hurt and Grievances)

Anahata means unstruck or unhurt and is located at the center of the chest. The name implies that beneath the hurts and grievances of past experiences lies a pure and spiritual place where no hurt exists.

The heart chakra unites the lower and upper chakras of matter and spirit. It is our source of love and connection, compassion, harmony and peace, and is associated with the lungs, heart, cardiac plexus, thymus gland, breasts, arms, hands and lymphatic system.

Blockages can manifest as inhumanity, lack of compassion, unprincipled behavior, immune system dysfunction, or lung and heart problems. A closed heart chakra can give way to grief, anger, jealousy, fear of betrayal, and hatred toward yourself and others.

In an imbalance, acting from the emotions can be confused with acting from the heart center. Feelings and emotions are sensory and stem from the second chakra, whereas the fourth chakra consciously channels those emotions into devotion and compassion.

The person who inflicts pain on others is coming from a place of fear, ignorance or hatred, all of which represent a closed heart chakra. When someone chooses to hurt you, it’s almost never about you. It’s about them.

You get to choose what to do with that hurt. By letting it go, you’re able to open your heart to new people and new experiences with compassion, love and understanding. Your mind and your ego may tell you otherwise but letting go is as simple as making a choice to move on.

The best way to receive love is to give it. When your heart chakra is open, you are flowing with love and compassion, you are quick to forgive, and you accept others and yourself.

5. Throat Chakra: Vishuddha (Speak Your Inner Truth)

Vishuddha is the first of the three spiritual chakras and its essence is faith and understanding. This is our source of verbal expression and the ability to speak our highest truth.

It’s located in the area of the throat and includes the neck, thyroid and parathyroid glands, jaw, mouth and tongue, shoulders, arms and hands. It’s associated with communication, creativity, self-expression, judgment, synthesizing ideas, healing, transformation, and purification.

Blockages can manifest as creative blocks, inability to communicate effectively or blunt or highly opinionated communication.

To be open and aligned in the fifth chakra is to speak, listen and express yourself from a higher form of communication. The element corresponding to the fifth chakra is ether or space, and the associated sense is hearing.

6. Third Eye or Brow Chakra: Ajna (Beyond Wisdom)

Ajna means beyond wisdom and will lead you to inner knowledge. It questions the spiritual side of life; it’s our inner vision, wisdom and recollection of past lives. This is the center of intuition.

Located between the eyebrows, about eye level, this chakra is associated with the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain. Blockage may lead to not heeding intuitive warnings and may manifest as rigidity, lack of foresight or depression.

Frequent activation of the sixth chakra through meditation increases pituitary gland secretion and allows us to become more intuitive. You will pay attention to a hunch or a subtle feeling of moving forward or holding back. If you are conflicted, ask your sense of intuition to open to you in order to help you make sound decisions. Taking into account your mind, intellect and ego, you are now including your soul in the decision making process.

Intuitive power is not the same as psychic power, which uses energy from and functions through the third chakra. An open sixth chakra can enable clairvoyance, telepathy, lucid dreaming, expanded imagination, and visualization.

A tingling or pulsating sensation around the area of the third eye during or after meditation is a sign that you are opening this blocked chakra.

7. Crown or Thousand Petal Lotus Chakra: Sahasrara (Pure Awareness)

The lotus flower symbolizes growth and emergence where there is no clarity. The beauty of the lotus is unique to its environment, which lacks vibrancy.

Sahasrara is our source of enlightenment and spiritual connection to all that is. It is a bridge to the metaphysical, to every living being and ultimately to the Divine energy that creates everything in the universe.

This chakra is located at the crown of the head and is associated with the cerebral cortex, central nervous system and pituitary gland. It’s concerned with information, understanding and acceptance. Blockages can manifest as psychological problems.

True opening of Sahaswara means the realization that you are pure awareness, pure consciousness, undivided, and all expansive. When you reach the unfurling of the seventh chakra, you emerge through the confines of the physical body, the ego, mind, and intellect. You even push beyond the individual soul that ties you to the endless cycle of birth and rebirth. You are freed from the shackles of desire. White light surrounds your body and you appear to stand out in your murky surroundings.

Our bodies are in constant flux between balance and imbalance. Unless you have an apparent problem in one area, imbalances can be difficult to detect. It’s good to bring awareness to your being and learn to recognize subtle signals and clues. Each chakra has an important function to perform. Keeping them open is not difficult, and correcting an imbalance or blockage in one area will help balance the others.
