Chakras on Fleek! How to Amp Up Your Meditation Game

July 7, 2015  |  

You may have heard folks throwing around the word “chakras” but what does this mean? And what does it matter to you? Is this just some mumbo jumbo?

The concept of chakras is not as confusing as it seems. Just like we have arteries and veins running through our bodies, we have chakras. Chakras are basically areas of spiritual energy. When our chakras are out of balance, naturally our lives are out of balance.

You can juice up your meditation game by focusing on the healing energy in any of the chakra areas. The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel, so you can picture a wheel or gorgeous lotus flower spinning in each chakra area from the base of the spine to the top of the head.

Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Picture yourself standing on the ground with cleansing white light shooting up throughout your feet, pull it in, receive it and allow it to spread throughout your body.

Now you may be wondering, well if these chakras are so important, Abiola, how come I’ve never heard of them? This is actually a question I received when I announced that I was creating a chakra clearing class. Just because we haven’t focused on something before doesn’t mean it isn’t relevant to us having our most bombshell lives.

You may have never given gravity a second thought either, but it is still doing its thing, right?

Let’s break it down, chakra by chakra…

Your Root Chakra:

Affirmation: I am always safe and protected.

Do you feel anxious and worried or unstable?

The root chakra is all about feeling safe in the world. This is very important for us as women. Many of the decisions we make are in response to not feeling secure in our sacred bombshell bodies, not feeling safe in our lives.

Your Sacral Chakra:

Affirmation: I deserve and welcome pleasure into my life.

Do you try to numb or avoid your own feelings or constantly find your emotions out of control?

The sacral chakra is all about pleasure, creativity and feeling good. The sacral chakra also represents sexuality, passion, and bliss. The sacral chakra is located below the belly button. When this chakra is in balance you feel comfortable with intimacy and happiness.

Your Naval Chakra:

Affirmation: I feel confident and respected.

Do you feel like you never get what you want or do you feel a need to be overly aggressive to get respect?

The naval chakra is about you standing confidently in your sacred bombshell power. The naval chakra represents self-worth. When the belly button chakra is balanced, you have healthy self-esteem.

Your Heart Chakra:

Affirmation: I am wrapped in the arms of unconditional love.

Are you stuck in grief or anger?

The heart chakra represents your love and compassion for others. The heart chakra represents inner peace and healthy relationships. When the heart chakra is balanced you easily give and receive love and your relationships are on point.

Your Throat Chakra:

Affirmation: I express myself easily and effortlessly.

Do you feel uneasy expressing yourself or feel the need to dominate the conversation?

When the throat chakra is in balance you communicate easily. The throat chakra is about finding your voice and speaking your truth. Yes!

Your Third Eye Chakra:

Affirmation: I trust my intuition.

Do you always need everybody and her mama to weigh in on your decisions?

The third eye chakra is about your intuition and connection to receiving guidance. This chakra is located in the center of your forehead. When the third eye chakra is in balance, you trust your own insight.

Your Crown Chakra:

Affirmation: I am open to receiving wisdom.

Do you feel sadness, a lack of purpose, or difficulty concentrating?

The crown chakra is all about inspiration and bliss, and connection to your Source. Located on the top of your stylish coif, the energy color is violet.

And there you have it, everything you need to know to get your chakras on fleek!
