Chakras are basically energy centres located within and around your body. The word "chakra" comes from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel" and these are how chakras are depicted - as spinning wheels that help move the energy around your body freely. 

Everything in the Universe is made up of energy so these chakra wheels just help with the ebb and flow of the energy flowing around our body. 

Although there are lots of chakras - below are the 7 main ones and their properties.

When the root chakra is open, we feel confident in our ability to withstand challenges and stand on our own two feet.


When it's blocked, we feel threatened, as if we're standing on unstable ground and it can manifest physically with arthritis, constipation, and bladder/colon problems. On an emotional level a blocked root chakra will make you feel insecure about finances or our basic needs and well-being.

When people have blocks in the heart chakra they will often put others first, to their own detriment. They will often feel lonely, insecure, and isolated. Others may be closed off and not wanting to open up to being vulnerable as they fear it could hurt them. Physically blocks in this chakra manifest through heart problems, asthma, and weight issues but it is mainly seen through the emotional symptoms.

When the throat chakra is open, we speak and listen with compassion. We also feel confident communicating with others, even through conflict, because you know you are being true to yourself and speaking from your heart and through your own truth. 


When this chakra is blocked people will speak over others, will dominate conversations, gossip, speak without thinking, or on the other side of the spectrum they may have trouble speaking their mind or voicing their concerns or opinions. Physically this will manifest through issues in the vocal / throat area as well as any problems with teeth, gums, and mouth.

When the third eye chakra is open, people are very intuitive - they have a sense of knowing and they trust themselves completely as they are in tune with their inner knowing. They can see the bigger picture and always follow their intuition. 


 Third Eye chakra blocks will present itself as headaches, issues with sight or concentration, and hearing problems. People who are not in touch with their intuition, have trouble listening and who seem to “know it all” usually have blocks in this chakra as this chakra is all to do with wisdom and knowing but without the air of arrogance.
