The Amazing 7 Chakra System of Western Culture

When I first started learning about chakras, I did not realize there was a difference between Eastern and Western practices! In fact, the first mention of these energy centers dates from 1500 to 1000 BC in India through their spiritual text, the Vedas, with over 100 energy centers. Fascinating, right?? As the world evolved, so did the chakra system, depending on what part of the world you learned it from. So, let us unlock the mystery of the Western chakra system, which includes the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, third eye, and crown chakras.

Root (Muladhara)

The root chakra is the foundation on which physical and spiritual energy flows throughout the body. It provides stability for your energy and your physical body. The root chakra also holds your ancestral memories and past life karma.

During times of balance, you’ll notice excitement and passion for your life and personal growth. Also, you tend to be resourceful and stress-free, so manifesting opportunities and prosperity is no longer a struggle!

When imbalanced, it leads to feelings of fear, insecurity, and confusion about your life path. You might also notice if you are blocked attachment issues form, like holding on to relationships or objects, when you know you shouldn’t.

Sacral (Swadhisthana)

The sacral chakra controls the energy flow within the body to and from the mind. Known as the center of gravity, it is also the center of your Life Force, which controls your intuition and gut feelings.

During times of balance, you’ll be flexible and accept change more easily. Life will feel pleasurable, and you will enjoy yourself more, leading to a healthier self-image. Balance within your Swadhistana allows you to be creative, passionate, and outgoing.

When imbalanced, the sacral chakra can lead to fears of betrayal, emotional explosions, or irritability. You may become overly dependent on others or form addictions, detach from the world, and have a decreased sense of self-worth.

Physical and emotional relation: Hips and pelvis, sexual and reproductive organs, kidney, gallbladder, adrenal glands, need for control, depression, guilt, fear, and addiction.

Solar Plexus (Manipura)

During times of balance, you can expect an increase in energy and confidence, as well as productivity and focus in your life and career. You will feel joyful and generous when the energy flows upward (positive).

On the other hand, when imbalanced, you may feel powerless or like your life is out of control. Often, you can no longer prioritize, become judgmental of yourself and others, or are easily triggered by criticism. The downward (negative) energy flow often leads to greed and jealousy.

Physical and emotional relation: Digestive system, acid reflux/heartburn, sleep disturbances, mid-back, eyes, determination, ego, inner strength, and focus.

Heart (Anahata)

The heart chakra is the warden of what we accept and oppose, as it determines the depth of our relationships. This energy center allows for interaction with the world around you and is where love, fear, and hatred originate.

During times of balance, relationships are healthier and mutually nurturing. You will also be more aware of when your relationship needs are unmet, allowing you to make changes confidently. Finally, you can understand your needs.

When imbalanced, the Anahata can be overactive or blocked. When overactive, you commonly rescue everyone else, leaving little time to focus on yourself. On the other hand, when blocked, you may find you cannot forgive people, are detached, or lack empathy for others.

Physical and emotional relation: Lungs, heart, hands/writs, lymphatic system, upper back and shoulders, blood, nerves, compassion, love, generosity, joy, fear, and grief.

Third Eye (Anja)

The third eye chakra is the guidance system for our beliefs, psyche, and personality. Used for self-reflection, the Anja can open you up to universal wisdom and truth. Here sits your consciousness.

During times of balance, you will be released from fears and beliefs that keep you from moving forward. Your life gains new meaning as you embark on your soul purpose, ascending the limitations of your physical mind. All those hardships, mistakes, or misfortunes are now understood as life lessons.

When imbalanced, confusion and chaos can overtake your life. Problem-solving or puzzles become laborious, as nothing makes sense to you. This can lead to feeling stuck as you cannot figure a way out of your current situation.
