The chakras act like a ladder to love, spirituality and healing, from the base energy of the Root Chakra that anchors us to the more refined spiritual energy of the Crown Chakra. Keeping the chakras in balance is the key to physical health, emotional stability and mental clarity.

*Root Chakra (Muladhara) is concerned with keeping us grounded and our lives constant, stable & secure. It controls the fight-or-flight reaction, putting us into survival mode. It is the chakra that anchors us to the earth when we are positive, patient & open to possibilities allowing for stability & inner strength.
*Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana) controls our physical health, well-being and is the centre of sexuality, pleasure and procreation. It is important to honour the body, giving it what it deserves and what it needs to thrive. Discipline and maturity are important to keep this chakra balanced and healthy.
*Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) is the centre of our personal identity that defines who we are. Self-worth, self-esteem, confidence and personal power are qualities of this chakra. When in balance, we feel good in our own skin and know who we are and that we are worthy of love, kindness and respect, allowing us to make positive choices in life.
*Heart Chakra (Anahata) guides us to accept the oneness of all life. It is concerned with unity, love, peace, purity and innocence. Through loving ourselves and others, we radiate joy, peace and unity.
*Throat Chakra (Vishuddha) is the gateway for communication, creativity, truthfulness and integrity.
*Brow Chakra or Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) is known as the control centre as it focuses on cultivating a strong, clear and independent mind. It is the chakra that helps us to see the "big picture" so we can make an educated decision. It is the seat of intuition, wisdom, imagination and knowledge.
*Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) reaches the heights of spirituality. Through the choices we make, our life lessons and realisations, we gain a greater sense of what we are capable of and what our purpose in life may be.
