Your Chakras

We have 7 main chakras which move spiritual energy down through our auric layers to our physical bodies. Our endocrine system is seen as the physical interface of the chakra system and control is via our nervous system – the brain and the nerve/blood plexuses.

Chakras are the centres of spiritual energy in the human body and the word chakra derives from the Sanskrit word for wheel, so we can picture them as wheels of light and energy.

Base/Root Chakra


This is your bottom most chakra, situated at the base of the spine and is all about personal survival, feeling grounded and feeling connected. When I say feeling connected I mean that you have a connection to a group (whether it be family, neighbourhood, religion, etc). The main time of activation of this chakra is 0 – 7 years of age and it is during this time we learn about our relationship with our family and community and how we relate to them. The common issues around an unbalanced root chakra relate to the feeling of not fitting in, insecurity, sense of being a failure, trying to “find oneself”, boundary issues, problems with your parents and limiting beliefs around money and survival.


Part of body: spine, blood, legs, feet, bladder, colon and rectum


Gland/organ: adrenals – governs your stress response


Meridians: heart and small intestine


“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”



Sacral Chakra


Your 2nd chakra is the sacral chakra which sits below your navel. This chakra is involved with issues around relationships, creativity, sexuality, passion, fertility and the polarity of opposites e.g.male/female, yin/yang, sun/moon. The main time of activation of this chakra is 8 – 14 years of age when we generally go from not liking the opposite sex to liking them. This is a time when we start developing our individuality and realise we are a separate entity to our parents and family. An unbalanced sacral chakra presents in many ways – having the feeling of not being able to finish anything, an inability to let go, impatience, selfishness, being uncomfortable with your sexuality, addictions, creative blocks, an inability to receive nurturing from others and guilt, shame or anger towards the past.


Part of body: reproductive organs, spleen and kidneys


Gland/organ: ovaries and testes – fertility, PMS


Meridians: kidney and bladder


“Above all, consider this: The greatest gift we can give ourselves,our children, and our world is to live well and love well.”



Solar Plexus Chakra


The 3rd chakra, the solar plexus chakra is situated above the navel area and below the breast bone. It represents our self esteem and the expression of our personal power. The relationship we have with ourselves, how we view our place in the world and how we take care of ourselves. The main age of activation of this chakra is 15 – 21 years (when we think we know it all and feel invincible). An unbalanced solar plexus chakra will show up as low self-esteem, passive-aggressive behaviour, feeling victimised, an inability to have fun, aloofness, being over-sensitive to criticism, fear of failure and rejection, loss of integrity and no respect for self or others.


Part of body: stomach, liver, gall bladder, intestines, skin, nervous system


Gland/organ: pancreas – governs glucose levels


Meridians: lung and large intestine


“Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.”



Heart Chakra


The heart chakra is the middle most chakra, situated in the centre of the chest and is all about love – how we give and receive love. A balanced heart chakra will allow one to love unconditionally and be forgiving and compassionate. The important lesson here is self love and forgiveness of self. Those with unbalanced heart chakras are judgemental, have an inability to express joy, are emotionally unstable and heartless. The main age of activation of the heart chakra is 22 – 28 years.


Part of body: heart, lungs, breasts, oesophagus, shoulders, arms,hands, blood, circulation, immune system, lymphatic system


Gland/organ: thymus – regulates your immune system


Meridians: gall bladder and liver


“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”



Throat Chakra


The throat chakra represents communication and self expression. It is the connecting point between your heart and brow chakra so it has a correlation between our thoughts (brow) and feelings (heart), and being able to speak those truths. Blocks in this chakra make it difficult to communicate, our voice may be weak and our feelings unclear with the result that we aren’t really heard. We need a clear voice that resonates with the truth so that we are empowered. The main age of activation for the throat chakra is 29 – 35 years of age.


Part of body: throat, mouth, teeth, gums


Gland/organ: thyroid and parathyroid – regulates metabolism


Meridians: stomach and spleen


“If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.”



Brow or Third Eye Chakra


Our 6th chakra, the brow chakra is situated between our eyebrows and is involved with perception and intuition. It is where heart and mind are united so that we can experience heartfelt reasoning. A blocked brow chakra can result in fear, lack of focus, blocked imagination, lack of emotional intelligence and a detachment from one’s own feelings.


The main age of activation for the brow chakra is 36 – 42 years of age.


Part of body: ears, nose, left eye, lower brain, nervous system.


Gland/organ: pituitary – stimulates all other glands.


Meridians: triple heater and pericardium


“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”



Crown Chakra


The crown chakra is the 7th chakra and is located at the very top of the head in an inverted position to draw upon universal wisdom and divine energy. It is through this chakra that we experience a connection to a power greater than ourselves, a discovery of the divine. An unbalanced crown chakra results in depression, self pity, apathy, confusion and a lack of inspiration.


The main age of activation for the crown chakra is 43 – 49 years of age.


Part of body: upper brain, right eye


Gland/organ: pineal – governs sleep


Meridians: central vessel and governing vessel


“Learning sleeps and snores in libraries, but wisdom is everywhere, wide awake, on tiptoe.”


”Every thought and experience you’ve ever had in your life gets filtered through these chakra databases. Each event is recorded into your cells…, in effect your biography becomes your biology.”
