Chakras 101

7 months ago


The chakra system explains how life force moves through the body. Understanding your chakras can help you navigate life with a deeper knowledge of your body, soul and how the two are inextricably linked. Let's dive in!


The Basics

Chakras 101 Goddess Provisions
There are seven chakra centers that start at the base of the spine and extend all the way up through the crown of the head. Each chakra is an energy storehouse that plays a role in regulating the mind, body and spirit. 

Picture it like a beautiful swirling ladder where the first rung is our connection to the physical world and the top rung is the relationship we have with our higher self.

In a healthy chakra system, where the seven chakras are balanced, energy flows easily. This fluidity creates a sense of calming wholeness, boosts wellbeing and reduces stress and dis-ease in the mind and body.

To achieve this blissful state, we can work with each chakra’s color, positive affirmations, crystals and complementary essential oils to open any closed chakras where energy is blocked and unable to flow freely.

Let’s take a look at the seven chakras, their unique characteristics and tools you can use to help open them.
