Understanding The Chakras of the World

If you've seen a movie or not been under a rock, you've at least heard of chakras before. They're part of everyone and happen to affect you differently depending on whether they are all aligned or not. The chakras of the world need to be understood so you can keep them aligned and maintain your spiritual pillar. So let's understand the chakras of the world.

What Are Chakras?

In the simplest of terms, chakras are energy. Specifically, they are areas of energy running down your whole body. From the tippy top of your head to your feet. There are many different chakras but today, we'll be talking about the main seven. We're going to talk about what they are and a few mantras associating with each.

So let's start from the top.

The Seventh Chakra: Crown

The seventh of the chakras of the world is called the 'Crown" because it rests just above your head like a crown.

Color: Violet

Location: Top of your head

Surrounds: Consciousness

Other Name: Sahasrara "Thousand-Petaled"

Mantras: "I am awake." "I am aware." "I am connected to the divine."

Why is it important?

This chakra is important because it represents finding your soul's purpose. When this chakra is activated, you have found that purpose. This energy is supplied by the other chakras so having the others aligned and activated will align and activate your crown. Through this alignment, you will find enlightenment.

The Sixth Chakra: Third Eye

This energy is called the third eye because it rests in the middle of your forehead, between your eyes. Its goal is to free your mind.

Color: Indigo

Why is it important?

When this chakra is activated, you'll feel steady and focused, as though everything you're seeing is from a higher perspective. You will see beyond ego and petty fears & worries. Sometimes, you can experience visions from past lives, have lucid dreams, and feel in touch with your "sixth sense".

The Fifth Chakra: The Throat

This one is pretty self-explanatory, it's called the Throat because it's in your throat and it's about finding your voice.

Color: Blue

Location: The throat

Surrounds: Self-expression

Other Name: Vishuddha “Especially Pure”

Mantra: "I communicate." "I listen to the sound of my breath." "My song rises."

Having a voice and gaining that self-expression will balance this chakra, making you feel empowered to communicate and speak your truth. When your throat is aligned and balanced you may feel inspired to sing or write, anyway that you can express and communicate your story and truth.

The Fourth Chakra: Heart

The heart is in the middle of your heart. It's about being compassionate, listening to your heart.

Color: Yellow

Location: Middle of your belly

The Second Chakra: Sacral

Your sacral chakra is called such because it is located in your navel, in the hips. It's the center of your emotions, pleasure, and desires.
