How to Use the Chakras in Everyday Life: Introduction

When it comes to spirituality, chakras are one of the most common things mentioned. These energy centers are being used at every moment! My purpose in the next set of articles, is to bring an understanding that chakras are used everyday.


What are chakras?

At every second of the day, prana or life energy is spinning and moving throughout our body. Chakras (Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”) are centers in our body in which energy flows through the most. They are a part of our energetic body, and not our physical body. There are numerous amount of chakras, however we mainly focus on the main seven within the body. These seven are: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown.

Keeping all of our chakras balanced allows us to feel grounded and able to function in our everyday lives. When one of our chakras are imbalanced, the other chakras are also affected. It is important to keep our chakras from being under-active or overactive. Being aware of the characteristics of our chakras and making choices that harmonize them creates balance.

Reflecting on Each Chakra

To get a better grasp of how we’re expressing each chakra, here are questions relating to each:

Root:  Do I feel grounded? Am I physically healthy?

Sacral: Am I stimulating or fueling my creative passions?

Solar Plexus: Do my personal habits support who I want to be?

Heart: Do I feel that I am open to receiving love?

Throat: Do I feel like I’ve been speaking my truth lately?

Third Eye: Do I trust my intuition?

Crown: Do I take time for myself to recharge, relax, and just be?


Next week, I will share ways to connect with the Root chakra every day. What chakra do you feel called to balance today?
