Our bodies have 7 major chakras, which are the main energy centers of the body that run from the base of your spine to the top of your head. The Sanskrit word chakra (pronounced “CHOCK-rah”) means wheel, which refers to the spinning energy in each of the seven chakras.

Think of them as pathways that promote harmony between the body, mind, and spirit. Blocked energy in our seven chakras can lead to distress, so it's important to understand what each one represents and what we can do to keep it open and flowing freely.

Each chakra has its own symbolism and each affects different aspects of your being: physical, mental, and spiritual. You can work on balancing and activating your chakras through Reiki and a variety of different activities, reflections, and meditations.

Here is a quick chakra chart to guide you through the chakra meanings, the primary gland governed by the chakra and mantras to activate each chakra.

 

Sit down in a comfortable position, close you eyes and take some deep breaths to relax your mind. Starting at the base of your spine, locate your 1st major chakra - root chakra. in your minds eye visualise the colour red and the sensation or feeling of being fully grounded, stable and connected to the ground beneath you. Recite the mantras given and feel the chakra activate. Then in turn working your way up each chakra, repeat this process again until you reach the 7th chakra at the top of your head.
