Your chakra personality will lead you towards your life’s goal and enable you to build a successful, happy and satisfying life.
Some people may be high achievers while some others are rather content with their stable day jobs. Some people may be more driven to create art while some others may be more spiritual and not at all amused by materialistic accomplishments. But why?
If we are all created equal, why do we seem to be so different in our personalities, attitudes, mindsets and goals?
This definitely has to do with your personality type, but not necessarily the 16 science based types of personalities. It all depends on your personality based on the 7 Chakras.
Understanding your chakra personality can be exceptionally beneficial for your life. Not only will you find out where you belong and what special abilities you possess, you will also get a clear idea about what purpose you serve in life.
What is a Chakra?
“The chakras are not only vortexes of energy, they are also centers for psychic reception.” – Catherine Carrigan
Our universe is formed of energy and we are no exceptions. Ancient cultures recognized that all living beings were made of a life force or “Prana” or “Qi” and these energy centers powered us from the inside.
These centers of energy are known as the 7 chakras which enables us to achieve physical, mental, energetic and spiritual balance. Understanding the 7 chakras will help you synchronize with your natural energy cycles.
Chakras can simply be described as circular vortexes of energy which are located in 7 different places across the spinal column. All of these chakras are directly connected with different glands and organs in our body. Although most of us are familiar with the 7 chakras, in reality there are a total of 114 chakras in the human body. Moreover, there are 72,000 energy channels or “nadis” through which our “prana” or vital energy flows.
The chakras, which are the foundation of our human existence, are an ancient concept found in Hinduism, originating in India around 1500-500 BC. The chakras are also a crucial part of Tantric Buddhism. Chakra is a Sanskrit term which can be literally translated into “wheel” or “circle”. These specific centers of energy begin at the crown of your head and culminate at the base of your spine.
Chakras control each and every aspect of our body and impact everything from mental strength, physical abilities to emotional processing.
What are the 7 chakras?
“The chakras… are places where we receive information and, if they are closed, we will not be able to access the full power of our intuitive gifts.” – Catherine Carrigan
The 7 primary chakras are the main junctions in our network of nerves which also operate as centers of consciousness and psychic energy. The chakras are seven points of experience and perception. Let us now take a look at the names, locations & colors of the 7 primary chakras are:
1. Root Chakra (Muladhara)
This chakra connects your energy with the earth. The term Muladhara is derived from Sanskrit words Mula, meaning root, and Dhara, meaning support. This chakra is located at the base of the spine and it’s color is red.
2. Sacral Chakra (Svadhishana)
Located just below your navel, this chakra is related to your identity and what you do as a human. The word Svadhishana literally means “the place of the self.” The color of this chakra is orange.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
This chakra is the source of your mental strength, identity and self-confidence. Located in the stomach area, your solar plexus chakra is the place of your personal power, wisdom & confidence. Manipura literally means a lustrous gem. The color of this chakra is yellow.
4. Heart Chakra (Anahata)
Anahata, which means “unhurt”, is the chakra of love, kindness, compassion and healing. The heart chakra is associated with love for yourself and for others. This chakra’s color is green and is located at the center of the chest.
5. Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
The 5th chakra gives voice to your views, opinions and personal truths. Vishuddha, which means “very pure”, allows you to speak the truth boldly and clearly. Situated at the base of the throat, the color of this chakra is blue.
6. Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)
Ajna, which means “beyond wisdom”, is the chakra which opens your senses and your mind to knowledge, information & realization beyond the materialistic world. Located in the forehead, above & between the eyes, the third eye chakra is associated with psychic energy, intuition & extrasensory perceptions. It’s color is indigo.
7. Crown Chakra (Sahaswara)
The 7th chakra is related to our personal consciousness and is situated on top of the head. Consciousness is a universal energy which is present everywhere and connects us with the entire universe. Sahaswara, which means “thousand petaled”, has a violet color.
Once you know about the 7 chakras, you can have a clear understanding of its influence on your personality type. By balancing your chakras and identifying your chakra personality, you can heal mental, emotional, physical & spiritual imbalances.
How the Chakras determine your personality
“The energy body acts as a bridge connecting our physical and spiritual bodies. In order for us to influence the transformation of the body and mind, we must first learn to transform the energy flow.” – Ilchi Lee
The different chakra personalities offer different perspectives at who we are and how we look at life, the world and the universe. Although all of us possess all the 7 chakras, one of the chakras is usually more dominant and active than the others.
The active chakra regulates your preferences, inclinations, passions, values and attractions more than the less active chakras. Our dominant chakra determines our personality and how we can live a meaningful and purposeful life.
Each of the 7 chakras has a unique personality and understanding them can help us to understand our innermost selves and appreciate others as well.
Every soul or personality is different from the other, even though they may share the same active chakra and personality traits. These innate individual flavors are energetically manifested as different patterns of actions, interests and pursuits in these 7 chakras.
The 7 chakra personality types are an excellent tool that allows us to know about our own multifaceted and complex personality. Understanding your dominant chakra can enable you to realize underlying patterns, focus on self-development, and live a happy & fulfilled life.
