Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel. A wheel represents motion or flow of energy. Your physical body has seven prominent points energy centers or vortexes which are known as the seven chakras. To keep your mind and body in excellent condition, you need to ensure that the seven chakras are in perfect alignment and in an unblocked state. Any imbalance in the seven chakras will surely manifest as a physical or mental illness. In this article, you will learn about the seven chakras of healing in your body and the detailed meaning of each chakra.

The Chakras

The seven chakras are numbered in a bottom-up fashion with the lowermost chakra being the first chakra and the uppermost chakra being the seventh or last chakra.

  1. Root Chakra or Muladhara

The root chakra is located at the base of your spine and it is also known as Muladhara. It represents your connection to the ground or planet earth. When this chakra is functioning properly, you can expect to feel stable and grounded in life.

The message of the root chakra is “I have” and it is represented by the color red.

When this chakra is blocked, you will feel insecure and unstable about your everyday life and material possessions. A healthy condition of this chakra will enable you to do your regular duties and keep the foundation of your existence strong and steady.

  • Sacral Chakra or Svadhisthana

The sacral chakra is located right above the pubic bone and is also known as Svadhisthana. It represents your sexuality and reproduction. When this chakra is functioning properly your passion, creativity, and sensuality will be healthy.

The message of the sacral chakra is “I feel” and it is represented by the color orange.

When this chakra is blocked you will not be able to express your desires or explore your creativity. You may even have problems with your children as they are your creation too. On the other hand, a healthy condition of this chakra allows you to enjoy life with vigor and vitality.

  • Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura

The solar plexus chakra is located in your upper abdomen, close to your stomach and it is also known as Manipura. It represents your free will, confidence, and sense of belonging to this world. When this chakra is functioning properly, you will be able to follow your inner calling with conviction and enjoy healthy self-esteem.

The message of the solar plexus chakra is “I can” and is represented by the color yellow.

When this chakra is blocked you will be troubled by an overwhelming sense of inadequacy that can act as a huge obstacle to any goal that you may have in life. You need this chakra to be in a healthy state in order to have strong willpower.

  • Heart Chakra or Anahata

The heart chakra is located close to your heart and is also known as Anahata. It is the middle point of all seven chakras and hence it enjoys special importance with respect to your health and well-being. When it functions properly you will be able to love unconditionally and enjoy meaningful relationships in life.

The message of the heart chakra is “I love” and is represented by the color green.

When this chakra is blocked you will feel an imbalance in your love life and relationships. Maybe you will give too much without getting back love. Or, maybe you will find it hard to love someone deeply. You need this chakra to be in a healthy state to unleash the positive energy vibrations related to love and emotional well-being.

  • Throat Chakra or Vishuddha

The throat chakra is located close to your vocal cords in your throat and it is also known as the Vishuddha. When it functions properly, you can expect to voice your thoughts clearly.

The message of the throat chakra is “I speak” and is represented by the color blue. When this chakra is blocked you will feel problems in the area of communication. You might have trouble in understanding others and/or might feel misunderstood. There could be difficulties when it comes to expressing yourself. You need this chakra to be in a healthy state to be able to connect and communicate well with the energy vibrations of those around you.

  • Third Eye Chakra or Ajna

The third eye chakra is located in between your eyebrows and is connected to the pineal gland. It is also known as the Ajna. When it functions properly, your sixth sense or power of intuition will be able to guide you in life.

The message of the third eye chakra is “I see” and is represented by the color indigo.

When this chakra is blocked you will feel problems in understanding people and situations around you. Your power of wisdom will be muted and this can be a major roadblock in life. You need this chakra to be in a healthy state to connect the unconscious areas of your mind with the conscious areas in a meaningful way. It gives you inner strength to visualize the world beyond what your eyes can see.

  • Crown Chakra or Sahasrara

The crown chakra is located in the topmost part of the head and is also known as Sahasrara. When it functions properly, you will have a healthy connection with your soul and you will feel alive with purpose.

The message of the crown chakra is “I know” and is represented by the color blue.

When this chakra is blocked you will feel insipid and listless in life. It is very important for this chakra to remain unblocked as energy vibrations enter your body through this chakra and flow out to the other six. This chakra is the point that helps you to have powerful insight and to know who you actually are. Before you try to engage with the world, it is important that you understand who you are and what you want. The crown chakra will give you that kind of clarity.

Conclusion

The seven chakras signify seven important points in your physical body. These points also correspond to the seven colors of the rainbow. In order to keep yourself happy and healthy, it is important to keep the chakras active and unblocked. You are not only a physical being but there is also a very important spiritual component to you. Understanding the seven chakras will help you to understand yourself better and achieve success in your personal quests.

Keto Diet Plan: Here Are 3 Full Days of Recipes

The Keto diet is one of the best available options if you’re trying to lose weight safely and quickly. This diet allows you to eat delicious meats, healthy fats, and vegetables—all targeted to help you burn the extra fat on your body by putting you into ketosis! Fascinating, right? To understand how the Keto Diet works, you need to learn about macros responsible for fueling our body.

Macros refer to three essential nutrients: carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids (fats). These are considered the three essential macronutrients that we consume to get energy. Usually, a typical meal consists of 60% carbohydrate, 20% protein, and 20% fat or lipid.

The Keto Diet suggests that you reduce carbohydrates and make your diet heavier in protein and fats. When you decide to go on a Keto Diet, your meals generally consist of 65% fat, 30% protein, and 5% carbohydrate. If the body gets less than 20 grams of carbohydrate each day, it goes into ketosis, a metabolic process that burns stored fat to produce ketone bodies that supply the energy required to run your body. Thus, if you plan your meals meticulously and keep the carbohydrate consumption extremely low, you can expect to lose weight quickly.

Here is a 3-Day Keto-Compliant Meal Plan

The upside of this diet is that the meals are not bland and are reasonably easy to prepare.

Keto Diet Day 1

Breakfast: Keto Pancakes and Stir-fried Broccoli

Break two eggs in a bowl and add 1/2 tablespoon of almond flour. Next, throw in 2 ounces of cream cheese and a pinch of salt to taste. Whisk the mixture until you get a smooth combination of pouring consistency. Heat butter in a pan and fry the pancakes one by one.

Cut a small head of broccoli into florets and wash them under running water—heat olive oil in a pan and throw in some chopped garlic. Once you get a pleasant aroma, add the broccoli florets and stir fry them for a minute or two. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt, and your breakfast is ready.

Note: If you prefer your pancakes a little sweeter, you can add a pinch of cinnamon or vanilla instead of salt in the pancake mixture and pair the cooked pancakes with fresh strawberries.

Snack: Assorted Nuts

You can have a handful of mixed nuts to prevent sudden hunger pains. Almondscashews, and pistachios are all keto-compliant nuts. You can dry roast them lightly to enhance the taste.

Lunch: Stir-fried Chicken and Veggies

Add one pound of minced chicken breast to heated oil in a pan. Chop some cabbages, peppers, and tomatoes and add them after 5 minutes. Keep tossing and add ginger and garlic paste after five more minutes. Turn off the heat and shred a little bit of cheese on top of the mixture. 

Dinner: Broccoli-Mushroom Salad with Diced Chicken

Cut one small broccoli and some button mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Dice a quarter pound of chicken breast into cubes. Heat olive oil in a wok and toss in the chicken slices first. Once they are lightly fried, neatly move them to a bowl and add a dollop of butter to the pan. Cook the broccoli and the mushrooms for 1 minute and then add the cooked chicken. Add a few cloves of chopped garlic and toss for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and sprinkle oregano generously. Your dinner is ready.

Keto Diet Day 2

Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs, Turkey Bacon, and Grilled Brussel Sprouts

Break two large eggs, add a bit of salt and pepper. Whisk into a smooth solution. Chop half an onion and one tomato into small pieces and add them to the eggs. Heat a little butter in a pan, pour in the egg mixture and scramble with a spatula. When the eggs are half done, you can shred in some cheese for extra taste.

Grill two slices of turkey bacon.

Arrange some Brussels sprouts on a skewer and coat them with chopped garlic, crushed ginger, and olive oil. Grill each side for 5 minutes to a light golden color. Now, your delicious breakfast is ready!

Snack: Veggie Sticks Dipped in Peanut Butter

Cut carrots and celery into 3-inch sticks. Dip them in peanut butter for a quick and tasty snack.

Lunch: Collard Shrimp Wrap

Take a giant collard leaf and blanch it in salted water for 30 seconds. Coat 1 pound of shrimp with sea salt and pepper. Cut one tomato and one green bell pepper into small cubes. Heat oil and toss the tomatoes and the bell peppers first. After a minute, add the shrimp and toss everything for 1 minute. Add one spoonful of butter and some chopped garlic cloves and cook for another minute. Turn off the flame, and your filling is ready. Place it neatly within the collard, leave and roll it into a nice, savory wrap.

Dinner: Pork Chops

Sear bone-in pork chops on both sides for around 4 minutes in heated olive oil. Take butter in a bowl and mix it with rosemary and chopped garlic. Place the chops on a baking tray brushed with butter mixture and cook for 12-15 minutes at 375°F. Once done, drizzle more butter on the chops and enjoy your dinner.

Keto Diet Day 3

Breakfast: Fruit Smoothie and Smoked Sausages

If you prefer a predominantly sweet breakfast, you can go for a fruit smoothie that tastes excellent, filling, and has few carbohydrates. Add frozen strawberries, frozen raspberries, and frozen blackberries in a blender. Add almond or coconut milk to get a rich and creamy taste. Blend them. You can sprinkle some bits of almond and grated coconut on top to enhance the flavor.

Have two turkey sausages on the side for an even more satisfying breakfast.

Snack: Egg Muffins (Makes two servings)

Crack and whisk one egg. Add 3-5 chopped mushrooms to it. Crush a clove of garlic and add a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Mix well and pour into two muffin molds. You can add cheese or tomatoes as well for variety.

Lunch: Classic Egg Salad With A Twist

Take two hard-boiled eggs and crush them to form bite-sized pieces. Dice onion and avocado into small pieces. Next, wash a handful of cherry tomatoes. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and add a pinch of salt. You can squeeze the juice of half a lemon into it, and your egg salad will be ready to eat.

Or, you can prepare a proper dressing by mixing two tablespoons of mayonnaise, two tablespoons of Greek yogurt, and a dash of olive oil. Gradually, fold the sauce into the egg mixture and end by sprinkling a little bit of kosher salt.

Dinner: Meatballs and Side Salad

Take 1/2 pound of ground beef and add chopped garlic, ginger, shredded mozzarella, and one egg. Mix well and form into five balls. Heat oil in a skillet and fry the meatballs to a rich golden color for around 10 minutes. Move the meatballs to a plate and add one chopped onion to the skillet and fry until golden brown. Add two chopped tomatoes and keep cooking until a sauce-like consistency is obtained. Throw in garlic paste and coconut milk and the broth will turn creamy. Add the meatballs and cover. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, and your dinner is ready.

So, take a deep breath and jump onto the Keto bandwagon. Starting is the hard part. Once you get started, the journey is smooth sailing! And, the weight loss and extra energy are fantastic!
