Heart chakra – Anahata | Color: Green by tahl rinsky

Heart chakra – Anahata  |  Color: Green

This is the central chakra, located in the heart space and forging the connection between the body, mind and spirit. Guiding our intuition, hope, love, forgiveness and compassion. ‘I LOVE’ .This is where our love for ourselves and others is rooted. When out of balance we can feel indecisive, paranoid, sorry for ourselves and unworthy. Physically it will manifest in the heart, lungs, circulatory system, shoulders and upper back. Balancing and opening the heart chakra enhances the love for self and others.  It allows you to feel compassion, empathy, and forgiveness for others, and reconnects you to the loving world around you. Thus, generating a zest for life.

The Solar Plexus Chakra - Manipura by tahl rinsky

Solar Plexus chakra – Manipura  |  Color: Yellow

Is located in the center of the abdomen and is the source of our personal power – ‘I CAN ‘. It is the ‘seat’ of the ego, the home for passion, impulse, anger and strength. When this chakra is open and clear we feel confident in who we are. We feel ready to take on new challenges with excitement and joy. Physical outcomes resulting from blockage includes poor digestion and liver function, diabetes, nervous exhaustion and food allergies. Balancing the Solar Plexus chakra allows you to be more aware of your own energy and being, comfortable in your decisions, and psychically connected to your “gut” feelings so that you may act accordingly with confidence.

Sacral chakra – Savadhisthana by tahl rinsky

Time to illuminate our second chakra Savadhisthana. With all honesty I struggled to express Orange, might have just been a bad creative day for me or possibly when challenging my creativity with this chakra my mind went blank. But as this chakra is all about your self worth, I am allowing myself to be vulnerable and express my imperfections, my confusion and my constant questioning of my creative process.

Sacral chakra – Savadhisthana  |  Color: Orange

Is located five cm below the naval, the sacral chakra governs our sexuality, creativity, intuition, self-worth and nurturing instinct. It is the sense of ‘I FEEL’.
It is related to a wide range of emotional issues, including our ability to get along with others and accept situations. Here we can build mutually supportive relationships with good boundaries. This chakra often offers us the opportunity to lesson our "control issues" and find a balance in our lives. Teaching us the acceptance and rejection are not the only options in our relationship. The process of making changes in our life stream through our personal choices is a product of the second chakra.

On the physical side its related to kidney problems, painful menstrual cycles, lower back pain, urinary track infections and sometimes addictions. With a healthy sacral chakra, you are able to live in the moment and experience life to the fullest.  Physical tasks become easier while stamina increases.
