Your Energy Body And The 7 Chakras Explained

Have you ever found yourself wondering where all of your energy has gone to? One day you feel like you’re on top of the world, then the next like you’ve been drained of all your energy overnight. Have you ever found yourself saying things like, “Why am I feeling so tired all of the time?” or “I just feel a little bit out of sync today. I’m not quite my usual self.” If you have been feeling this way recently then the answer will most likely be found in your energy body and in your 7 main chakras. Read on to see your energy body and the 7 chakras explained, and how they affect you in day to day life. 
We are all beings made of light or pure energy. Everything that we think about controls the flow in and all around us of this energy.

Your thoughts control your feelings, emotions and also everything that you experience. Negative thoughts, worries and obsessions can easily cause imbalances in the natural flow of energy through your energy field. This in turn can cause sickness if left unattended to.

However, it isn’t just our thoughts that can affect our chakras, and ultimately our health. Our diet and lifestyle also affect our chakras and energy levels. Most especially any abusive substances like tobacco, alcohol, drugs, caffeine, and even too much sugar intake!

The 7 Chakras

Your energy body contains many energy centers or “Chakras”. These chakras are like fans, with their blades overlapping, and they spin clockwise pushing life force energy , often referred to as “Ki”, “Chi” or “Prana”, around our bodies. They constantly receive this Universal life force energy from the Creator, and radiate it throughout our bodies ensuring vibrant good health.

Although we have many chakras, it is normally the seven main chakras that people such as energy healers refer to. Each of these main chakras is associated with a different issue in your life.

They are affected by everything that we eat, think about, or focus on.

These seven chakras are deep within your energy body, in the center or midline. The ones at the top, associated with spiritual matters, spin at a much faster rate than the lower ones which are linked to issues of the material world around us.

The Seven Main Chakras:

Crown Chakra

The crown chakra is situated near the top of the head, and is a bright rich purple colour. This chakra governs issues related to our

spirituality and divine guidance. This allows us to access ideas, inventions and creativity from the Universe. This is where inspiration and ideas are born.

Third Eye Chakra

This chakra is situated between the two eyes. This is the eye of your higher self, and it is always looking directly at you. This is because everything comes from within you, not from outside yourself. Surrounding the eye is an energy center that is a deep indigo blue in colour.

The third eye chakra deals with issues related to your future and your psychic abilities. It allows us to access our gifts of “knowing” and “foresight”.

Throat Chakra

The throat chakra is located in the throat near the Adam’s apple. It is sky blue in colour and is linked to all areas of communication in your life.

It governs speaking, teaching, singing, mime and all forms of expression. This includes asking for your needs to be met, and standing up for yourself and your principles.

Heart Chakra

This chakra is located in the center of the chest, near the heart. It is a beautiful emerald green in colour interspersed with pink.

The heart chakra governs all the love that we feel including our love for God and ourselves, our relationships, our empathy, compassion and forgiveness.

Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus chakra is found just behind the navel and is bright sunshine yellow in colour.

This chakra is linked to all issues regarding control and power over yourself, other people and situations.

Sacral Chakra

This chakra is situated midway between your navel and the base of your spine. It is bright orange in colour and it is linked to all issues related to physical desires, passions and appetites including cravings and addictions.

Root Chakra

Located at the base of the spine, this chakra is ruby red in colour. The root chakra governs all issues related to our security such as home, finances, career, needs and possessions as well as physical safety.

What Affects Our Chakras

When our chakras are clean and balanced ( equal in size ) we remain healthy and happy.

However we all experience fears, doubts, worries and insecurities. Because life has a habit of throwing a few curve balls at all of us from time to time and this is a normal part of life. This is how we learn and grow by experiencing different situations. But on occasion we may become obsessed about a particular situation or person which causes an imbalance in our chakras.

Our diet and what we choose to ingest affects our chakras also.  As I mentioned previously there are a number of  main culprits like Alcohol, Caffeine, Chocolate, Sugar, Cigarettes, Drugs of any kind, Meat, especially red meat and all foods grown with the use of pesticides.

If we choose to overindulge in any of the above, or to abuse substances such as alcohol or drugs, this affects our chakras in a major way. Our chakras become over large, or may shrink. They become dirty in color, and lose their vibrancy, as well as their ability to pump energy efficiently around our energy bodies.

All of these situations affect our chakras and their ability to function properly. Fears and doubts can shrink them, while obsessions tend to enlarge them. They become dirty with dark, heavy energy which dims there colors making them look muddy, and they can no longer serve their purpose of keeping us healthy and vibrant.

This is when we start to feel the ill effects of our thoughts and actions. It manifests as sickness in our bodies because our chakras can no longer maintain our energy bodies in a healthy condition.

Keeping Your Chakras And Energy Body Healthy

There are many ways to clear your chakras and it is a fairly simple thing to do. You should try to clear and balance your chakras every day as we all experience some form of negative thoughts each day, or you may absorb negative energy from another person, or the food and beverages that you ingest.

Methods to Clean your Chakras:

White light Visualization

Close your eyes and imagine a brilliant white beam of light entering your head right at the crown or top.

Now visualize each chakra color in turn, starting at the top with your crown chakra color, rich purple.

Imagine the beam of white light clearing away any dirt and grime from the crown chakra, just washing it away. You may actually see this happening, until the color is sparkling and vivid purple again.

Then work your way down, cleaning each chakra in turn, until they all sparkle and shine bright again.

Visualize deep indigo blue for the third eye, sky blue for the throat, emerald green with flashes of pink for the heart, sunshine yellow for the solar plexus, beautiful orange for the sacral and deep ruby red for the root.

Don’t worry if the color appears dirty at first, this simply means that you are actually seeing the dirt on your chakras.

Just clean until they all sparkle and shine again. With regular cleaning they won’t appear so dirty, and the process will be relatively quicker.

Water Visualization

This is similar to the previous method but this time you can simply ask your Angels to fill the water in your shower with white light in order to clear your chakras.

As you shower, visualize each chakra color in turn and imagine that the dirt and grime from your chakras is draining away in the shower water.

A salt bath can also work wonders to clear your chakras as the salt will also pull toxins out of your system .

Archangel Raphael

Archangel Raphael is the Archangel in charge of healing, and he works with his healing angels. If you ask him to help you to clear your chakras he will enter your body and clear each one for you, gently balancing them all as he works with his beautiful green healing light removing all negative energies.

Archangel Metatron

If you ask Archangel Metatron to assist you in clearing your chakras he will use sacred geometry symbols that he works with to cleanse and balance your chakras for you.

As you close your eyes during this process you may actually see some of these sacred geometry symbols as Archangel Metatron works on your energy body. These are ancient healing symbols that are made of energy, and it is said that they have been used since time began to facilitate not just healing, but also alchemy and manifestation work.

In fact it is rumored that for those who understand esoteric principles, the use of sacred geometry symbols is a must. The Ancient Egyptians are thought to have utilized the power of sacred geometry symbols, as well as King Solomon, and more recently Saint Germain.

Saint Germain often told close friends that he knew the secrets of alchemy and could manifest gold from old metal. Whether he could or not, he was quite a dashing and mysterious figure across Europe in royal courts and noble houses during the 1700’s. He was said to have the elixir of life, and that he never appeared to age. There have been many creditable people who have claimed to have met him over the years, most recently in 2011.

Please remember to acknowledge the Archangels by thanking them for their help. All credit and glory should always go to the Creator but the Angels do appreciate your kindness in acknowledging them for their hard work.

Final Thoughts

There are numerous other methods to cleanse your chakras including meditation, chanting, the use of singing bowls, or crystals, yoga and tai chi, which increase your energy flow.

Taking a walk or exercising in a forest or near the ocean or a lake can also help to clear your chakras as the increased oxygen flow in your body, as you breathe deeply, will naturally open and clear them.

If the energy flow in your body is particularly imbalanced it is very worthwhile to seek the assistance of a properly certified energy healer, such as a Reiki Practitioner or Master, who can give you one to one feedback over a number of sessions.

Energy healing balances and clears your chakras and will facilitate a powerful but gentle release of any toxins in your body for a number of days after each healing session.

I highly recommend however searching for a certified healer who can be recommended to you by friends, family or other trusted sources as it is essential to be aware of the healer’s background and training.

Most properly certified healers will also have their certificates displayed in full public view on the walls of their healing rooms for you to see. Whichever healer you choose, go with your gut feelings and ensure that you feel happy and safe in their care.

One thing is certain though, in order to really feel great and maintain your energy levels, you must take good care of not only your physical body, but your chakras and energy body also.

Although unseen and invisible to the naked eye, they still exist in a very real way, and you ignore them at your own peril! So take great care of them , and they will reward you with a healthy and happy life.

Wishing you health & happiness,
