What Parts of my Body do the Chakras Control?
Welcome back my beautiful friends! Now that we know the names, locations, and colors of the seven chakras lets dive a little deeper.
Chakras, which are energy gateways, need to be balanced. Obstructed chakras can have negative effects that show up both physically and emotionally.
Let's talk a little bit about what physical parts of the body each chakra controls. Knowing which organs and systems are connected to each chakra will help to identify which chakra may be blocked.
Controls central nervous system, and pituitary gland.
The Third Eye
Controls brain, eyes, ears, and nose.
Controls the neck, thyroid and parathyroid glands.
Controls circulation, arms, shoulders, hands and lungs.
The Solar Plexus
Controls the muscles, pancreas and digestion.
Controls the reproductive system, bladder and the lower part of the spine.
Controls adrenal glands, large intestines, feet, legs and bones.
If you're having any trouble with any of these body parts, the chakra that governs it is blocked. Try the meditation tip below. Remember meditation has many benefits, but you need to make it routine. Meditating once will not solve all your problems.
Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a compliment to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.
Your body has the ability to heal itself. There are between 50 and 75 trillion cells in the body. Each type of cell has its own life span, and when a human dies it may take hours or day before all the cells in the body die. Red blood cells live for about four months, while white blood cells live on average more than a year. Skin cells live about two or three weeks.
Meditation Exercise: Total time: About 5 Min
Find a quiet area to relax and get comfortable. However, this is not always possible. Do the best you can, just showing up and taking the time for yourself is what matters. I like to meditate in the morning before getting in the shower and my kids wake up!
First, take one minute and start to breathe. Close your eyes and simply count each breath. Breathe in deep and release your breath while counting "one". Breathe in deep, release and count "two". As you reach ten start back at "one". Focus only on counting your breath and gently remove other thoughts as they enter your mind. Do this for about 45 seconds to one minute.
Your body should start to relax as you focus on your breath. Now we are going to work our way up your chakras, spending only about 30 seconds on each one. As you focus on each individual chakra, imagine a spinning colored lotus flower (or wheel) in each respective area.
Start with the first chakra, the Base or Root Chakra (if you need help remembering the locations and colors please refer to https://theunicorngoddess.com/blogs/news/my-chakras-are-where-and-it-can-help-with-my-mediation). As you breathe imagine a red lotus flower, or "wheel", spinning at the base of your tailbone. You should be getting more relaxed and will want to spend more time on each chakra, but 30 seconds will work when that is all a busy schedule allows.
Continue imagining the spinning lotus flower in each color as you move up to the top of the head with the crown chakra. As you take these final breaths feel the energy flow up through your chakras and out your Crown Chakra. Embrace the feeling, not just in your body, but all around you.
Five minutes is all it will take. This meditation can be done anywhere or any time to help increase energy while calming your mind and nerves.
Remember to be kind to yourself.
