To keep your 7 chakras active and healthy, there are a number of ways we recommend you take care of them. Chakras are energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to the immune system and emotions. There are seven main chakras positioned throughout your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color, and governs specific functions. To achieve balance in all areas of your life, your chakras should be balanced, in alignment and spinning just right. Essential oils can help you achieve that balance and that is why we created our Chakra Boost collection.
HOW TO ENERGIZE YOUR CHAKRAS AND KEEP THEM SPINNING
The first thing to do is become aware of the seven chakras and how they correspond to your physical body. There are seven major energy circles from the top of the head to the bottom of the spine that move clockwise or counterclockwise. Each chakra has a frontal version and a back version. The fronts of the chakras are related to a person's feelings, and the back version is connected to will. When a chakra is shut down due to trauma, the corresponding area or organ will eventually be affected. Our boxes have a handy graphic that shows you the location of the chakra on your body. Ready to spin your chakras through breath and intention? When used in specific, targeted areas, our essential oil synergies, expertly blended for each chakra area can help to open up and activate the chakras.
ADD RITUALS OF SELF CARE TO YOUR DAY
Practicing yoga and certain meditations definitely bring awareness to the areas; hand mudras can activate chakras; grounding to the earth can help open the lower chakras. You can see an experienced healer or be your own healer and add crystals and chanting, prayer, automatic writing, and contemplation to your deliberate chakra opening practice. When we created our seven Chakra Boosts we knew that by bringing essential oils, breath and intention to practice, your chakras can be aligned each and every day, increasing your well being and health. Used daily as part of your morning routine, applied to your chakras before you dress and as natural perfume oil on your wrists and neck, inhale deeply and focus on your chakra. If you have more time, then sit in a quiet space, meditate for a few minutes, and then gently massage your chakras with our blends on the specific part of your body and imagine that chakra begin to open and spin. You can mix and match, focus on specific areas and build memory through scent and your brain.
THE FIRST CHAKRA - I BELONG
The first chakra is known as the Vitality Chakra. It is located at the base of the spine, the pelvic floor, and the first three vertebrae. Often called the root chakra, it is responsible for your sense of safety and security. Balancing this chakra, the first of seven, will allow the opening of the chakras above it. Focus on what grounds you to stability in your life, like food, water, shelter,
and safety, as well as your more emotional needs. The first chakra’s sense organ is smell. It is also represented by the physical element of Earth.
" I AM SAFE AND DEEPLY CONNECTED TO ALL LIFE. I AM HEALTHY & ABUNDANT. "
THE SECOND CHAKRA – I FEEL
The second chakra is known as the creativity chakra. It is located above the pubic bone and below the navel. The element of the second chakra is water. When this chakra is out of balance, you may experience emotional instability and fear of change. When you have balanced your second chakra you will feel abundance, pleasure, and joy. Your sacral chakra is the home of the creative life force energy that helps you enjoy your life here on Earth. You can open this chakra with creative expression and by honoring your body, introducing play and allowing yourself to create with no bias or self-judgment. The energy of this chakra is feminine.
" I AM DEEPLY ABUNDANT , HEALTHY AND VITAL , ATTRACTING TRUE SACRED RELATIONSHIP. "
THE THIRD CHAKRA – I CAN
The third chakra is known as source of personal power. It governs self-esteem, and the power of transformation and motivation. It is located around the navel in the area of the solar plexus and up to the breastbone. When you feel self-confident, have a strong sense of purpose, and are self-motivated, your third chakra is open and healthy. If your third chakra is out of balance, you can suffer from low self-esteem, decisions are harder to make, and you may frustrate quickly. This chakra’s element is fire.
" I CHOOSE TO LIVE A SUCCESSFUL LIFE. I CHOOSE EMPOWERMENT IN ALL OF MY EXPERIENCES."
THE FOURTH CHAKRA – I LOVE
The fourth chakra, also referred to as the heart chakra, is located at the center of the chest and includes the heart, cardiac plexus, thymus gland, lungs, and breasts. It also rules the lymphatic system. This is where physical and spiritual meet. A closed heart chakra can give way to grief, anger, jealousy, fear of betrayal, and hatred toward yourself and others. Show appreciation for yourself and give yourself the love that you want others to give to you. Then, spread that compassion to those around you.
" I CHOOSE HARMONY IN ALL MY RELATIONSHIPS. I CHOOSE A JOYFUL AND COMPASSIONATE WAY OF LIFE. "
THE FIFTH CHAKRA – I SPEAK
The fifth chakra is the first of the three spiritual chakras. It is located in the area of the throat. An open and aligned fifth chakra means you can both speak and listen. You can express yourself from a higher form of communication. Balancing your 5th chakra is as easy as thinking before you speak. The element corresponding to the fifth chakra is space, while the sense is hearing.
" I SPEAK MY TRUTH WITH EASE, GRACE AND CLARITY. "
THE SIXTH CHAKRA – I SEE
The sixth chakra is located in the area of the third eye, which is found in the space between the eyebrows. It encompasses the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain. This is your center of intuition. This is one of the spiritual chakras. There is actually a small pinecone shaped gland in your brain that takes in light. This gland, the pineal gland, is responsible for helping you feel awake in the daytime and sleepy at night. An open sixth chakra can enable clairvoyance, telepathy, lucid dreaming, expanded imagination, and visualization. Having an open 6th Chakra allows clarity and truth in all your experiences and the ability to manifest your visions into the physical realm.
" I SEE ALL SITUATIONS AND EXPERIENCES WITH THE UTMOST CLARITY. "
THE SEVENTH CHAKRA – I AM
The seventh chakra is located at the crown of the head. This center represents our connection to the Divine and being open to the inspiration of our life’s purpose. When you open your seventh chakra, the limitations of the physical body, the ego, mind, and intellect are released.
