Chakras: Tap Into the Inner Self

Studio Brow loves to send out wholesome energy and vibe to our guests and friends who visit our locations.
We thought we would share how folks can balance the body and mind using an ancient Eastern wellness belief based on seven energy centers that govern all bodily organs and work together as one system yet independently, according to the web site, Chakraenergy.com.
A person can collect energy from several different levels of vibrations, including color, that are utilized in various parts of the body.
Throughout the body, people have main energy centers, which are connected to major organs or glands that govern other body parts. Each of these main energy centers are referred to as chakra – chakra is a Sanskrit word which means wheel.
A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion forming a vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibratory level.
It is said that the human body contains hundreds of chakras that are the key to the operation of one’s being. These “spinning wheels” draw-in coded information from one’s surroundings.
Coded information can be anything from a color vibration to ultra-violet ray to a radio or micro wave to another person’s aura.
In essence, chakras receive the health of the environment, including the people in contact with, that proves why one’s moods have an effect on others, as well chakras also being able to radiate energy of vibration.
It is also believed people have seven main chakra centers and each main center is connected to one’s being on several different levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
On the physical level each chakra governs a main organ or gland, which is then connected to other body parts that resonate the same frequency.
Every organ, gland and body system is connected to a chakra and each chakra is connected to a color vibration frequency.
For example, the heart chakra governs the thymus gland and it is also in charge of the functioning of the heart organ, lungs, bronchia system, lymph glands, secondary circulatory system, immune system as well as the arm and hands. The heart chakra also resonates to the color green.
The seven main chakra centers are aligned along the spinal column. If there are disturbances on any level, this shows in the chakra’s vitality level.
Each of the seven main chakras is their own intelligence center, which means each chakra is not only associated with physical health but also controls aspects connected to emotional, mental and belief systems.
The seven chakra centers include:
Crown – Violet – Knowingness – The right to aspire. Dedication to the divine consciousness and trusting the universe. Learning about one’s spirituality. People’s connection to the concept of “God” or a higher intelligence. Integrating one’s consciousness and subconsciousness into the superconsciousness.
Brow – Indigo – Intuition – The right to “see.” Trusting one’s intuition and insights. Developing one’s psychic abilities. Self-realization. Releasing hidden and repressed negative thoughts.
Throat – Blue – Relationships – The right to speak. Learning to express oneself and one’s beliefs (truthful expression). Ability to trust. Loyalty. Organization and planning.
Heart – Green – Relationships – The right to love. Love, forgiveness, compassion. Ability to have self-control. Acceptance of oneself.
Solar Plexus – Yellow – Personal power – The right to think. Balance of intellect, self-confidence and ego power. Ability to have self-control and humor.
Spleen – Orange – Feelings — The right to feel. Connected to our sensing abilities and issues related to feelings. Ability to be social and intimacy issues.
Root – Red – Survival – The right to exist. Deals with tasks related to the material and physical world. Ability to stand up for oneself and security issues.
To help balance a chakra, whether on an emotional, intellectual, physical or spiritual level, people need to bring in the chakra color vibration, which resonates at the same frequency.
Everyday, people stimulate their chakra centers in one way or another, for example, through different thoughts or physically through senses.
Daily, people energize their centers, consciously or unconsciously, through various methods.
Following is a list of common ways people charge their chakra centers:
Thought is a form of energy. Science has proven a positive thought allows energy to flow freely and unrestricted. Whereas, negative thoughts decrease energy within the body. Every thought, whether mental or emotional, is connected to a chakra. For example, a passionate thought is a red energy stimulant, but an angry thought decreases one’s positive red energy flow. This means that continual angry thoughts will lower the root chakra’s energy.
This is the most pertinent energy source. Through light all the seven color energies flow from the sun’s rays to the earth. People, animals, plants, minerals, water and our chakras receive energy from the sun’s light. If someone is not able to enjoy the sun for a few hours daily, add a quality full spectrum light bulb to a light source in the work area or in a lamp at home.
When the sun’s rays bless all plant life, it gives the plant life and energy. Once the plant absorbs energy, the color energy that remains is the energy of that fruit, vegetable or flower. Without this energy the body could not assimilate the nutritional value of the food. Balance chakras daily by eating foods that contain each of the seven color energies, which is why the doctor always said to eat a plate of different colored foods, for the color value.
Meditation and Breathing in the form of Yoga. Since thought is an energy form a person can stimulate chakra centers through meditation, visualization or breathing energy into various chakra centers. By adding the color intention adds additional power from a chakra’s vibration.
Gems & Minerals
Gemstones and minerals are also energy forms. For example, crystals contain a similar crystalline structure as the human body. Crystals amplify energy and can be programmed, like computer chips and watches. Wearing gemstone jewelry or placing gemstones and minerals in your environment is a simple way to absorb the stone or mineral’s healing vibrations.
Water is a conductor of energy and color is an energy. While lying in the colored water the body absorbs the vibrational frequency from the color. Take the time to give back to the body and soul. While bathing, balance that chakra by thinking about what someone would like to achieve from that specific energy and maybe add the correlating aromatherapy oil. Do not use chemical food coloring to dye water.
Essential oils are the pure essence of the plant or flower. Every oil has a vibration that correlates to a color. Oils contain the healing properties of herbs, flowers or plants. Use only therapeutic quality oils, inexpensive oils may contain toxins. Also, never apply oils directly on your skin, instead dilute with a carrier oil or in a bath.
Music & Dance
Music effects us in a positive or negative way. Every musical note corresponds to a color and chakra center. Certain sounds can stimulate an emotional, mental, physical or spiritual response. Listening or dancing to primal music, such as the beating of drums, can energize the physical body and stimulate the root chakra.
Toning & Sounds
People can vocally make sounds to vibrate at the same frequency as various organs in our body. Regular toning can help keep the body’s organs functioning properly. Noise pollution can be very disturbing to our environment. Surround with sounds, which make oneself happy and productive.
By shining of light through various color filters directly onto the body, the vibration of the color will be absorbed through the skin effecting the designated area.
Charge water by filling a colored glass with water or by placing a colored filter in front of a glass of water and let the sun’s rays kiss the water with color energy. Make sure the glass is not leaded and of a clean color hue.
The use of color through the eyes. Via the eyes, color stimulates the pituitary gland, which in turn releases hormones connected to the correlating organ of the same frequency. Therapeutic eye glasses that are manufactured with various colored filters can be simply worn whenever someone needs a boost of a certain color or chakra energy. Make sure the color eyeglasses are 100 percent UVA and UVB coated if wearing outdoors and again the exact color tint of the lens is very important.
Note: Unless the color glass manufacturers or distributors are aware of color therapy, chances are their colored lenses are not made for healing purposes.
Use colors consciously in the home or work environment to give someone more positive and productive energy. Paint a room or add different colored pillows, artwork, carpets, etc.
What people wear will influence mood, mind and energy level. Light penetrates through clothing amplifying the color energy we are wearing. The more vibrant the clothing the better the energy transfer.
Art & Color
Art and color can be used as an outlet to either express or stimulate. Surround oneself with the colors, which are suitable for what is needed to accomplish in that area. Use calming colors in the bedroom and mentally stimulating colors in the work space.
