Hello, beauties!You’ve likely heard of the 7 chakras, but do you really understand what they are? While most often discussed alongside emotional healing or meditation practice, the chakras hold greater importance to more than these two topics. But maybe you don’t understand how chakras are relevant to your life, or maybe you believe you have to go to a ‘guru’ to understand them at all. Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t! Everyone - from beginners to more advanced seekers - can gain a deeper understanding of the chakras, and how they might play a role in bettering our quality of life. In this post, I’m going to go over the basics of chakras - their names, colors and locations - to set the stage for later exploration.What Is A Chakra?Chakra is a Sanskrit term and it means “wheel” or “disk” and is derived from the root word “cakra”. These spinning wheels of energy/light are made of unique energy centers beginning at the top of the head and ending at the base of the spine. They influence all parts of your bodily system, from emotional processing to resistance to disease.In chakra meditation techniques, the focus is placed on opening the chakras in order to keep them in alignment. The theory is that if chakras are out of sync, they may negatively impact your physical and psychological health. For a succinct illustration of this, take this excerpt from the Law of Attraction website:“To get a better sense of how this works, picture a physical machine. If cogs get stuck, pipes become detached or parts of the machine leak, it no longer does its job properly. Plus, these basic faults inevitably lead to further failures. Then, the device deteriorates further. The network of chakras works in a broadly similar way.”In essence, through the balancing of chakras, the systems of your body can work more harmoniously. This naturally promotes greater overall health and happiness - and we could all use a bit more of both!

We coo over chubby-cheeked babies with dimples for days. But when we see those same lumps and bumps appear on our own backsides and thighs, we don’t take so kindly to them.
