7 chakras at a glance

 


Chakra meditation helps us to open the main chakras and thus allow energies to flow better. We explain how meditation works.

What is a chakra anyway?

The term "chakra" originally comes from Sanskrit and means something like circle, wheel, or vortex. There are a total of seven of these chakras (often incorrectly called chakras), which were referred to as so-called energy centers of the body in ancient Indian scriptures and run along the spine. "Bad" energies can, therefore, for example, cause blockages in the individual chakras, which in turn can express themselves through physical symptoms such as palpitations or anxiety disorders.

What is Chakra Meditation?

At the end of the spine, there is a kind of energy reservoir, the Kundalini. In ancient India, it was often depicted in the form of a sleeping snake. With the help of chakra meditation, the Kundalini is to be activated and, as it were, to wiggle up the back to open the individual chakras, to recognize and resolve blockages, and to allow the life energy to flow better in general. If the Kundalini flows through a chakra, a sound is created - the mantra. If the energy connection between all seven chakras succeeds, one speaks of "Samadhi" or also an experience of unity that is supposed to enable an expanded state of consciousness.

Root Chakra (Muladhara Chakra)

  • Seat: at the lower end of the spine, the pelvic floor
  • Color: red
  • Stands for: connectedness and roots with life, stability, and material security
  • Effect: As the lowest chakra, the root chakra is the source of life energy, which grounds us and gives us stability. Physical exhaustion and weakness make themselves felt in this chakra.
  • Meditation instructions: Imagine the root chakra as your source of energy on the pelvic floor, which lets its warm, red light flow through the whole abdomen and warms this area.

Sacral Chakra (Svadisthana Chakra)

  • Seat:   about three fingers below the navel
  • Color: orange
  • Stands for: creativity as well as creative thinking and acting, joie de vivre, sensuality and sexual energies
  • Effect: The sacral chakra allows us to live out our creativity and love of life. It is also considered the center of female energy. If we are constantly sad or suffer from frequent tiredness, this can be related to the sacral chakra.
  • Meditation instructions: Concentrate on your lower abdomen below the navel and imagine the sacral chakra as an orange blossom of light that slowly unfolds throughout the body, improving your mood and giving you new energy.

Umbilical Chakra (Manipura Chakra)

  • Seat: above the navel, on the so-called "solar plexus"
  • Color: yellow
  • Stands for: assertiveness and willpower as well as self-confident demeanor
  • Effect: The third chakra serves as a central store for the so-called Prana, the life energy. Stress and inner tension are most likely to be felt here.
  • Meditation Instructions: Imagine that a warm yellow sunbeam warms the area above your navel and spreads from there. The warm yellow solar plexus fills you with calm and peace.

Heart Chakra (Anahata Chakra)

  • Seat: at heart level in the chest
  • Color: green
  • Stands for: a warm, open, compassionate, and tolerant being
  • Effect: Our heart chakra gives us our gentle traits - it gives us the ability to love, to give and receive security, and to be compassionate towards others. If it is not in balance, this can lead to feelings of loneliness, sadness, or even a depressed mood.
  • Meditation instructions: Imagine the heart chakra as a lush, light green spring meadow in your chest. Its soft light lets love and compassion blooms like flowers and flows from the chest through the whole body.
