Everybody have heard about Chakra and everyone is trying to find balance but how?
First of all, we should know keywords as: Nadi, Susumna, Ida, Pingala, Prana and of course balance.
Why these words and what is their connection?
In our body we have 72.000 Nadi and they are used to move energy around our body. These Nadis are located all over our body and put together the left side of the body (Ida) with the right part of the body (Pingala). The Ida is the ” Lunar energy” and Pingala is the ”Solar energy”. Ida is the introver part of us and Pingala is the extrovert part of us. These two different sides has one part in common and it’s the Susumna. This is located along the spine where the Chakras are located. This is the part of the body where the Kundalini could come up If it’s awake. Why Prana? Prana is where our energy is stored and thanks to the Nadi the Prana it goes around our body. With the breathing techniques we help our body to balance the right and left side.
We have 7 different Chakra:
- Root or Muladhara
- Sacral or Svadhistana
- Solar Plexus or Manipura
- Heart or Anahata
- Throat or Vishudha
- Third Eye or Ajna
- Crown or Sahasrara
Each Chakra is located from the perineum and pelvic bone (if you don’t know where they are, we can easily explain where the anus is located) to the crown of our head.
How do we balance it? Well each Chakra controlled by different state of emotions so we can balance it with Pranayama techniques, chanting some mantras,by practicing some Asana and also practicing Karma Yoga. Each of us can have unbalance or overbalance chakra. It’s important to not always focus on just one Chakra but depends in the situation we found ourselves, we can have automatically balance some Chakras rather than others. The chakra can be balanced or unbalanced in a matter of minutes depending of the status of our mind
