The best way to describe a Chakra is a spinning ball of energy that helps our body to function as it should, as long as all Chakras are individually and equally balanced. We have multiple Chakras located throughout different points in the body. However, there are 7 main Chakras that are mostly focused on. Each of these 7 chakras correlate to a specific area in life and are represented by a different colour of the rainbow.
1st Chakra: ROOT CHAKRA
Location: The base of the spine.
Meaning: This Chakra represents settlement, feeling grounded in life, home and work. It’s about setting roots.
How to unblock: Spend time in nature, appreciating nature and feeling connected with it. Surrender to and let go of the frustrations you have with life. Make the changes needed to truly feel grounded and settled. Understand your self-worth and believe it. Apply it. Have appreciation for the things you may take for granted, such as having running water or a roof over your head.
Meditate for 15 minutes per day, imagining a vibrant red spinning ball of energy at the base of your spine and feel it healing and grounding you. Once you feel this Chakra is unblocked, you can move on to healing another Chakra but ALWAYS remember only to try and heal Chakras one by one.
2nd Chakra: Sacral Chakra
Location: Lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel
Meaning: This Chakra represents physical relationships (both friendships and romantic), pleasures in life, fertility and self-expression.
To unblock: Perform acts of kindness/volunteering/helping others. Learn how to speak truthfully about your feelings with people you have relationships with. Learn how to love your body and feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. Meditate for 15 minutes per day visualising your Root Chakra, then visualise your Sacral Chakra: a vibrant orange ball of spinning energy sitting in your lower abdomen. Feel healing and appreciation for yourself. Be thankful for all you have and all you are. Know that you are enough. Visualise your Root and Sacral Chakras working in perfect harmony.
3rd Chakra: Solar Plexus Chakra
Location: Just above the navel

Distinguish between the people in your life who should be in your circle and who shouldn’t. Let go of resentment for people who have hurt you. Forgive. Celebrate your accomplishments and learn from mistakes. Stop over analysing yourself and learn to trust your own inner voice and intuition. Meditate for 15 minutes per day visualising your Root Chakra, then Sacral Chakra, then visualise the Solar Plexus Chakra: a vibrant yellow ball of spinning energy just above your belly button.
