Meaning of the 7 chakras
Test your chakras

Balancing your chakras (or "light wheels") aims to harmonize the flow of subtle energy in constant circulation in your body. The ultimate goal of chakra development is to open one by one the seven chakras starting with the first chakra, the root chakra and to release the Kundalini snake which is coiled around it to allow it to go up along the nadis* (the subtle energy canals) up to the seventh charka, the crown chakra located at the top of the skull and thus attaining enlightenment and a state of supreme consciousness.

However, regular re-balancing of your different chakras, even if they are not yet open, that is to say that you have not yet reached the level of consciousness to which each one corresponds, is useful to understand the complete process that will gradually allow you to rise to the ultimate truth. This initiatory journey takes place in parallel with the ascent of the goddess Shakti, in the form of the Kundalini snake (or the "resting force") towards the crown chakra where her beloved Shiva is located and with whom she aspires to merge. The elevation of the energy of the earth and of the feminine towards spiritual and masculine energy is the objective of this graduated elevation of consciousness, where each chakra or body of subtle energy is a step towards ultimate enlightenment of consciousness and transformation, that is, the union of Shakti and Shiva, the feminine and the masculine.**

During the pre-ascension phase, during which the Kundalini's snake is still resting in the hope of being activated, the initiate, such as a newborn or a young child, has little or no control over his life and seems powerless against the vagaries and annoyances to which he is subject.

Below we list the different foods, herbs, essential oils, protective stones and yoga positions that are best suited for balancing each of the 7 chakras. Indeed, without neglecting the importance of meditation practiced in parallel, a healthy and specific diet to each chakra, the use of healing crystals and adapted yoga exercises all play a significant role in the balancing and opening of our subtle energy centers.

* There are 72,000 nadis or channels of subtle energy that roam the body in its entirety. However, just as it is simpler to concentrate on 7 main chakras while other secondary chakras exist (especially on the hands and feet), it is customary to consider first the 3 main nadis (Sushumna, the central nadi through which Kundalini passes, as well as Pingala and Ida), which crisscross the spine and form in a way the ascensional highway of the root chakra located at the level of the coccyx up to the crown chakra of the top of the head.

** How can we not recall here the myth of the origin of love as described by Plato? According to the great ancient Greece philosopher, the human being was originally a man, a woman or an androgynous, composed of four arms, four legs and a double face. Their feeling of all power and their pride drove these first humans to face the gods directly. Zeus to punish them (as he also did not want to annihilate them otherwise their offerings would have stopped) decided to cut their bodies in two. Since then, men and women have been trying to be one again, which is a wonderful metaphor for love.
