Chakras - A Map To Your Wholeness

by Dana Mrkich

Why is it that so many of us, no matter how much we spiritually know, physically achieve or materially accumulate, still don’t feel the happiness or inner peace we desire? We are all looking for that one ingredient that will give us the answer, that will fill that ‘something is missing’ feeling. We are told the answer lies in being more spiritual, more successful, more anything. We try these things and still we don’t feel fulfilled. Why? Usually it’s because we are focusing only on certain parts of who we are, while neglecting or avoiding the rest.

On the journey of life we become disconnected from aspects of ourselves, aspects we have hidden, forgotten about or don’t value. This gives us a sense that something is missing, that we have a hole inside that we need to fill. Of course, nothing is missing. There is no hole. We just need to re-connect to all of who we are. The urge to ‘fill the hole’ is a call from your soul to feel your whole.

Are you meditating every day but repressing the part of you that wants to build an empire? Are you making loads of money but can’t remember the last time you did something you really love to do, just for fun? Just like a car, each part of us has a vital role, each part affects the other in some way, and each part has to be cared for in order for the whole to function. When we deny or repress even one part, the whole can’t work properly!

If you would like to get in touch with and express more of your true self, your chakras can show you the way. Chakras are centres of energy that run throughout your body. They provide a natural map to follow for connecting to your wholeness. Each emanates a ray of coloured energy and is in charge of different aspects of your self and life. Each carries vital information about who you are, including beliefs, fears, dreams, past memories and untapped future potential. These unseen parts of you contain truths that lie in your heart and soul, wounds that need attention and healing, and gifts that are waiting to be revealed.

Following is a description of each of the 7 main chakras, including simple ways you can strengthen your connection to them:

Red Root Chakra (base of your torso): Physical health, grounded in your humanity and physical reality, ability to create abundance, manifest your dreams and visions, connect to right work, how safe, secure and supported you feel in the world.

Try: Abundance attitude, drumming, tribal dance, walking and immersing in nature, camping, touch the Earth with your bare feet.

Orange Sacral Chakra (below your navel): Sacred sexuality, sensuality, creativity, nurturing, nourishment, pleasure, knowing your worth and value, feeling your feelings.

Try: Cooking, bubble bath, aromatherapy massage, bellydancing, pole-dancing, pamper yourself, emotional healing sessions, experience your sexuality in healthy, loving ways.

Yellow Solar Plexus Chakra (center of your torso): Inner power, self-confidence, inner strength, drive, action, will, gut instinct, assertiveness, mind over matter.

Try: Martial arts, kick-boxing, weight-training, visualizing yellow sun ray radiating out from solar plexus, deep breathing, facing one of your fears and just doing it!

Green Heart Chakra (lower mid chest): Self-love, self-acceptance, unconditional love and compassion for others, inner peace, harmony and balance.

Try: Keep a gratitude journal, show compassion and kindness toward yourself and others, forgive yourself and others, buy yourself a special gift, listen to music, dance.

Blue Throat Chakra (throat): Communication, ability to listen, speaking your truth, bringing forth your creativity and gifts and sharing them with the world, allowing your true self to be seen.

Try: Singing, painting, art and craftwork, journaling, sound healing, crystal bowls, chanting, expressing your truth and authentic self, make a collage of your ideal life using pictures and words from magazines.

Indigo Third Eye Chakra (mid-forehead): Ability to see into other dimensions of reality including past and future timelines, clairvoyance, visualization, imagination, psychic ability.

Try: Creative visualization – clear focus on what you’d like to create, record your dreams, positive thinking, affirmations, strengthen psychic muscle with inspiration or tarot cards.

Violet Crown Chakra (crown of your head): Access to our higher consciousness, spirit, guides, angels and all information available from the higher realms.

Try: Ask for guidance from your guides, angels or divine source and trust yourself knowing you can receive their answers via meditation or journaling, integrate your spiritual knowledge into your daily life – walk your talk.
