How to Feel Calm: Working With the Chakras

The Chakra system, an ancient concept rooted in Eastern spiritual traditions, offers a fascinating framework for understanding the flow of energy within our bodies. These seven energy centres, or Chakras, are believed to influence various aspects of our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. By learning about and balancing these Chakras, many people find they can achieve a sense of calm and inner peace.


Starting at the base of the spine, the first chakra, known as the Root Chakra (Muladhara), is associated with our sense of security and groundedness. When balanced, it fosters feelings of stability and confidence. Moving upward, the Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana) located below the navel, governs creativity and sexual energy. A balanced Sacral Chakra enhances our ability to experience joy and express ourselves freely. Next is the Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura), found in the upper abdomen. This chakra is linked to personal power and self-esteem. When it is in harmony, we feel confident and in control of our lives.

The fourth chakra, the Heart Chakra (Anahata), located at the center of the chest, is the bridge between the lower and upper chakras and is associated with love and compassion. A balanced Heart Chakra enables us to give and receive love openly. The Throat Chakra (Vishuddha), located at the throat, governs communication and self-expression. When this chakra is balanced, we can speak our truth clearly and confidently. The third eye, or Brow Chakra (Ajna), between the eyebrows, is linked to intuition and insight. A balanced Third Eye Chakra enhances our ability to see things clearly and make wise decisions. Finally, the Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) at the top of the head, connects us to the divine and our higher self. When balanced, it brings a sense of spiritual connection and enlightenment.

To cultivate calmness through the Chakra system, you can practice meditation, visualisation, and mindful breathing techniques. For example, during meditation, focus on each Chakra starting from the Root and moving upwards, visualising each as a vibrant, spinning wheel of energy.

Affirmations, yoga, and incorporating specific colours and crystals associated with each Chakra can also support this process.

By paying attention to and nurturing these energy centres, you can create a harmonious flow within your body, fostering a deep sense of calm and well-being.
