Your Root Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started!    Our final chakra is actually known as the first chakra: the Root. You may be wondering, “why did you start at the 7th chakra?” and my answer is that I like going from top to bottom. It’s how I typically do scans in Reiki so it just made sense for me to do it[...]

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your Solar Plexus Chakra is located right under your heart chakra.

Your Third Eye Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your Third Eye Chakra is located on your forehead, between your eyes (this is just to locate on a map, but in reality, it’s “inside” you so just think of it in that general area). This is the 6th chakra, right under the Crown. It is associated with the color Indigo, a de[...]

Your Crown Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your crown chakra is located at the top of your head. It is associated with the color “white” (which I know isn’t an actual color) or violet.
