Our body has 72,000 nadis, of which some are more important than others. If we can understand and learn how to maintain the 7 energy bodies, we will achieve more health and well-being and reach balance. And these sensations will help us to feel more inner peace.
The chakras are wheels of energy that start at the tailbone and go up to the crown of your head. Each of them has a different colour and vibration, that is activated depending on whether we block ourselves or otherwise activate it too much.
The first energy body: Muladhara (Chakra Raíz)
Its colour is red. The vibration that makes its energy body stay balanced is knowing the fears that block you, and when we increase them even more with our negative thoughts and concerns. The energy of this root chakra has a lot to do with our survival in this world.
When Muladhara root chakra is blocked at the health level we have poor blood circulation, we retain fluid, we would suffer from uterine fibroids or even haemorrhoids. It could also be the case that we do not advance in life because of fear.
An easy way to know if this chakra is blocked is to observe within yourself how your chakra is. On the other hand, when the Muladhara chakra is accelerated it causes nervousness and stress, causing an acceleration in the adrenal glands and unbalancing the other chakras.
The way to help this energy body would be to observe and feel how afraid you are. If they are paralyzing fears or they are fears that you do not want to express to others this causes you more psychological stress.
How to balance this chakra:
- Eating a good diet based on red fruits and root foods will help you to be stronger.
- Doing leg poses (yoga)
Let's not forget that the most important thing is to be present in the moment. And from this present moment observe what it is that you want and what you want to do, and how you are limiting yourself not to do it.
Second energy body: Svadhisthana (Sacral Chakra)
Its color is orange, it embodies the energies of the reproductive organs. Without water there is no birth. This is the organ of enjoyment and creativity, when we are in love it is more nourished. When we are blocked without the desire to live, without illusion, full of concerns for our children or partners, our water circulation gets blocked, causing stagnation and diseases, hence the importance of living fluently.
The water element symbolizes the flow of life, all stagnant water causes diseases.It is the element of life, because without it we would all cease to exist, hence the importance of living balanced and happy.
It can be balanced by:
- Practicing leg exercises
- Eating orange coloured food, diuretic fruits such as orange, watermelon, pineapple or melon
- Observe your relationships
- Ask yourself if you are allowing yourself to be creative or that are you allowing yourself to be submitted by other people
Reflect on what you can change in this moment and what you cannot change. Think what prevents you from making those changes, and how you can live without these obstacles in order to live in balance.
Third energy body: Manipura (Solar Plexus Chakra)
Its color is yellow, when it is blocked it affects our entire digestive system. When we receive bad news this can cause diarrhoea, stomach problems, or poor digestion. People who are quiet and overly reserved tend to have ulcer problems from lack of expression and communication. When you fall in love (“feeling butterflies in your stomach”) or when a relationship ends, you may feel anxious to eat because of what you feel in your stomach.
The warrior of light would be defined by his battles. How this chakra manifests itself depend on how you handle experiences. Since it is also governed by attachments to relatives or things and the destructive or constructive ego.
To balance this chakra, it is important to:
- Take the fruits and vegetables that your digestive system can tolerate,
- Take relaxed walks after eating.
- Take infusions of cinnamon, chamomile, fennel or ginger and digestive infusions.
The Manipura chakra is the bridge to open the heart chakra.It is important to understand that throughout life a series of things that affect our physical and energetic body will happen to us. Reflecting on how you are at this moment in life with other people will help you to understand and know yourself.
Everything we live is an experience and from each person we learn. We should also being grateful for those experiences and letting go of the situations that make us sick, caused by anger, rage, concern and non-acceptance of the facts. It is time to begin to understand that these people are teachers, and that they will be in our lives to teach us to continue growing.
The fourth energy body: Anahata (Chakra Corazón)
Represented by element air. Open your heart, forgive yourself and forgive and everything will heal. When you put love in doing things without expecting anyone to say thank you for doing them, because it comes out of your soul, it is the greatest joy you can feel.It is the highest vibration, unconditional love and passion to do and to feel. The colour of this chakra is emerald green.
It is blocked by an unrequited love, a relative that leaves us, when we feel betrayed. Who has not gone through some or all of these situations? When we block this chakra we close ourselves to life, when we feel (our soul cries), we do not live new experiences, we feel short of breath.
It can cause lung or heart problems, anxiety or depression, we feel sad and melancholic. Our cells turn off and the immune system becomes weaker. On the other hand, when we decide to live, feel and flow, our heart pumps faster.We rejuvenate and we understand that in life we are passing through, and that we have to be happier, without becoming attached to feelings, accepting that everything has an expiration date.
Do breath technique with aromatherapy of mint or eucalyptus, practice gentle exercise, a good diet with green foods and above all live, experiment, forgive, forgive yourself and move forward.
The fifth energy body: Visuddha (Throat Chakra)
Its color is blue, its vibration is your voice that expresses our thoughts or emotions. Observe what comes out of your mouth when you are angry, when you are being creative, doing what your like and how you react when things do not go as you want to.
This chakra blocks when we communicate with our emotions, due to fear of speaking, low self-esteem, insecurities or when we speak nonsense, verbalizing words that do not come out of us such as anger and rage. When that happens you feel in those moments that you start to swallow saliva, your throat swells and a knot becomes that reaches your stomach, intestines, affecting your creativity.
When you express love towards others and towards yourself, change the vibration of your voice with respectful words full of affection. Your voice becomes more subdued and more relaxed and attracts other to you. This is the energy body of communication, tell me how you speak and I will tell you what your state is right now.
The vibration of this energy body favours foods that contain antioxidants, such as acai berries, blueberries, propolis, thyme, honey and lemon. Do something peculiar like singing happy songs, being more creative, exercising, and most importantly expressing yourself in the way you would like to be spoken to.
Observe how you talk to each person and start to make changes.When we change our vibration the others will also begin to changeif they do not change it the problem is the other person, not yours. Reflect on how you are talking to yourself and also how you treat yourself, words should always be positive and value yourself more.

Sixth energy body: Ajna (Third Eye Chakra)
This is the Observer, the colour of this chakra is indigo, it is the eye of our soul. When we close our eyes when meditating, we activate the “Ajanata” and we can see without having our eyes open. We connect with our soul, it is time to listen and feel your body.
This chakra is blocked when we are confused about our purpose in life. When we live when things are not clear, we lose ourselves and we cannot meditate or connect with our inner being. Because we are more aware of others and we lose ourselves.
The ajanata is the chakra of meditation. The one that takes us inside our being and the practice of yoga, pranayama, aromatherapy and relaxing essence. Such as lavender, marjoram, incense, lavender that will help us to enter a more inner state.
The best nutrition you can give it is peace of mind, clearing your mind of things that are leading to nothing, concerns, past or future things, observe what you think, why are you acting to yourself, how you can solve it. Review your life and begin to change the way you see things little by little.
Seventh energy body: Sahasrara (Crown Chakra)
This is the chakra that connects us with our higher self or with divinity. It is the chakra of wisdom, its colour is the violet of transmutation.
If we go through life as victims of everything we have been through and do not begin to transmute all those wounds from the past, your life will be seen as meaningless and full of destructive emotions. If we decide to make a change, heal our wounds and stop seeing ourselves as a victim, we will see life in another way.
When we understand that in life we are just passing through, that we come to experiment, learn to live, to reproduce, that everything has a time. And that what hurts us the most is what made us stronger or when you live a relationship with other people, there is always growth on both sides.
Work your inner child, pamper it, thank it for all those experiences, staying with what you have learned. And not what destroys you such as hatred, anger, grief, sadness and helplessness. Continue forward with more security and emotional maturity, having clearer ideas of what you want. Then your mind will be calmer, your vibration will be stronger and this helps to connect more strongly and with other energies.
Balancing each of our bodies to keep them healthy is essential. By food, exercise for our physical body, work on emotional states, make repairs, meditation and analysis of how you are living your day to day will help your mental body. Giving it the necessary strength to your energy body to be more optimistic and see life through other lenses.
