The chakra system offers an integrated perspective on the mind and body connection. Here are the ways chakras come together to influence your health and well-being.

The Sanskrit word chakra translates to “wheel,” and refers to the energetic vortexes that align along the spine and head. They hold the energy of your thoughts, feelings, habits, deeds, and more.

More than 4,000 years ago, ancient Indians suggested that there are seven major chakras, along with numerous other ones. Chakras are not physical in nature but influence your body and mind deeply. They can determine how you feel and act, as well as how you heal or harbour disease.

In this era of COVID-19 and social distancing, it’s even more important to honour your multidimensional needs. The chakra system can help you to see past judgement and separation during this time so that you can see the light in others. As you begin to look at yourself through the lens of the chakra system, you may be able to see yourself holistically, as well as how your projection creates your reality.

Chakras teach you to honour the many needs of being human.

The lower chakras (i.e. the base/root, sacral and solar plexus chakras) have to do with earthly and physical matters such as survival, material well-being, sexuality, power, and confidence.

The heart chakra is at the centre of the chakra system and holds energies related to love, kindness, compassion, and empathy.

The upper chakras (i.e. the throat, third eye, and crown chakras) relate to integrity, expression, intuition, and awakening.

Each chakra is equally important for health and well-being. The chakra system offers a pathway to deep inner fulfilment by teaching you how to embrace your multi-faceted human nature. When you balance your chakras, you are helping to satisfy your soul’s need for love, community, creativity, connection with the Divine, and authenticity.

There Is Oneness in Mind, Body, and Spirit

What you think, feel, and experience in your mind and heart manifests in your physical body. There is not a thought or feeling that isn’t recorded in your being. Your cells, fluids, and organ systems process your perspectives, emotions, and environment, just as much as the mind does. The same can be said for your spirit, what you feel within your body and think within your mind is connected to your spirit.

The chakra system can help you see that you aren’t a puzzle with merely three pieces for your mind, body, and spirit, but rather one divinely created being. It allows you to explore the constant communication and synergy among them.
