How To Align Your Chakras

Posted by Pauline Hansen on


Your chakras are the seven points throughout your body where spiritual and physical energy are channelled. Each of your chakras has individual attributes, and is connected to unique parts of your existence.

We are not able to see or touch any of the seven chakras, but we can sense them, we can feel them, and we can work to enhance how well our energy flows through these points.

Aligning your chakras is important because they can either become too closed up or too open – for any number of reasons! Read on to discover how you can align your chakras, and in doing so boost your happiness and wellbeing!

The Root Chakra

The root chakra can be found at the base of the spine. When energy is flowing through this chakra properly you will feel grounded and connected to the universe.

Practicing grounding yoga poses, such as Bridge Pose, Warrior Pose and Standing Forward Bend Pose, can help to align the root chakra. You can also make a conscious effort to wear red coloured clothing in order to further bring balance to the root chakra.

The Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is just below the belly button. When energy flows through the sacral chakra in an optimum way you will have greater control over your feelings, have a better understanding of your emotions, and be more connected to your sexuality.

Engaging in hip opening yoga poses, such as Bound Angle Pose, Cow Face Pose and Eagle Pose, can help to align the sacral chakra. Wearing orange coloured garments can also help when it comes to aligning this chakra.

The Solar Plexus Chakra

Found just above the belly button, the solar plexus chakra impacts your anxieties, your fears and your personal strength. If the flow of energy is inhibited then you may feel as though you are drained of these things.

Heat building yoga poses, such as Sun Salutation, Boat Pose and Downward Facing Dog, are very useful for aligning the solar plexus chakra. Donning yellow coloured clothing can also help!

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is in the chest. When this chakra is aligned as it should be you will have a genuine sense of compassion for those around you. Also, you will be able to give and receive love without limitations.

Yoga poses that encourage the chest to open are ideal for helping to align the heart chakra. You may try Cobra Pose, Camel Pose and Fish Pose to get you started! Green is the colour of choice for this chakra.

The Throat Chakra

This chakra is of course in the throat. When it is completely in alignment you will be able to communicate clearly and express yourself with clarity and ease. You may notice that some people in your life are unable to voice their opinions or make their feelings known, whereas others may find it difficult not to over-share every last thought. You can probably guess which of these types of people have a blocked throat chakra and whose chakra has become too open!

Certain yoga poses are incredibly useful for opening up the throat, and also for strengthening the muscles in the connected areas. Incorporate Lion’s Pose, Plow Pose and Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose to feel these benefits and to align this chakra. Furthermore, light blue coloured clothing can help to encourage energy to flow through this chakra in a desirable way.

The Third Eye Chakra

The third eye chakra can be found in the middle of your forehead, and when it is functioning as it should, your intuition is at its peek.

Restorative yoga poses are the best to utilise when you are trying to enhance the flow of energy through your third eye chakra. Child’s Pose, for example, is a very good choice and is perfect for beginners to yoga. You may also try Adept’s Pose and Savasana. You will likely find that energy flows more freely through your third eye chakra when you wear dark blue clothing.

The Crown Chakra

The crown chakra sits upon the top of the head. If you are to be able to tap into higher states of consciousness, such as through meditation, then it is important that this chakra is balanced well. When the crown chakra is in alignment your awareness will be enhanced and you will be better able to be present in each moment.

Balancing poses are best for aligning this chakra. Try adding Tree Pose, Eagle Pose and Angled Crescent Lunge to your regular practice. Also, including dark purple and white in your clothing colour scheme can help.
