If your life has been feeling less vital and lacking energy or you feel stuck in a loop, you may have a clogged or blocked chakra. Although most people have heard of seven chakras in the human body, there are 114 in the body. The chakras in the human body is a complex energy form.
What is Chakra?
Chakras are an ancient system for understanding your body's energy. They are located in the central channel of the energetic spine (Sushumna). The flow of energy (Nadi) starts at the base of the spine and runs up to the crown of the head. There are 7 types of chakras - Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra. The concept is found in the early traditions of Hinduism. Beliefs differ between the Indian religions, with many Buddhist texts consistently mentioning five Chakras, while Hindu sources offer six or even seven. Chakra is energy centers. The goal behind chakra healing is to reach a place of balance between spirit, body, earth and health, universality and grounding.
According to Chakra yoga tradition, the subtle body is a part of you that you can't see or touch—it's where your energy flows, which is why it's also referred to as the energy body. Chakra meditation techniques are the various focal points in the subtle body used in a variety of ancient meditation practices. The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body. Think of them as pathways that promote harmony between the body, mind, and spirit. Within kundalini yoga, the techniques of breath exercises, visualizations, mudras, bandhas, kriyas, and mantras are focused on transmuting subtle energy through "chakras". Kundalini Chakra Yoga is an ancient practice that helps you channel powerful energy and transform your life.
Balancing your chakra helps keep a balance between spirit, body, earth and health, universality and grounding.
Here are a few techniques to clear, cleanse and heal your 7 chakras of the body:

2nd CHAKRA (SACRAL)- Your second chakra is associated with water and governs how you experience a pleasure. Water has cleansing and healing properties. Immerse yourself in water for twenty minutes in the ocean or swimming pool. Have a bath with sea salt and baking soda.
3rd CHAKRA (SOLAR PLEXUS)- The third chakra is associated with the element of fire and guides your will power and self-esteem. Sit around a bonfire or soak up bright sunlight to recharge your chakra.
4th CHAKRA (HEART)- Your fourth chakra is the heart chakra, associated with air. When it’s open, you can give and receive love easily and in a healthy way. Breathe deeply, drive with the windows open, fly a kite, or take a boat ride.
