Our chakras are one of the most important energetic points in our bodies.
Despite this, most of us know nothing about our chakras, let alone how to care for them. This article emphasizes the complexities and history of our chakras.
The first recorded mention of chakras is between 1500-500 BC in India. The texts that contain the lessons in chakras are known as Vedas. Similar energetic concepts have also been found in Ancient Egypt.
What Are the Chakras?
Our chakras, specifically, are energetic points on our body. There are a total of points starting at the base of our spine to the tops of our heads. They’re known commonly as: the root chakra, sacral chakra, solar plexus chakra, heart chakra, third eye/brow chakra, and crown chakra.

Root Chakra (Muladhara)
Our root chakra is responsible for our baser instincts, the impulses we rely on to survive. It’s the energetic point that grounds us and refines our flight or fight response. Memories specific to environmental disasters, war, famine, and other threats to our or our ancestors' physical life can be held here.
When this chakra is open, we feel taken care of and courageous. When it's blocked, we may feel lazy or carry anger/hatred towards our bodies.
The root chakra is associated with the color red. In order to open/unblock this chakra, chant ‘LANG’ during meditation.
SatinSays products to help open the root chakra include:
Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana)
The sacral chakra is commonly associated with passion and creative energy. However, it plays a vital role in our pleasure centers. This chakra is deeply connected to our emotions and need for intimacy. It’s located below the belly button.
The sacral chakra is an important energy point when dealing with trauma healing, as well. Many people hold their trauma in this chakra, which can cause blockages that manifest as, for example: emotional disconnect, troubles reaching an orgasm/squirting, or apathy.
The sacral chakra is associated with the color orange. In order to open/unblock this chakra, chant ‘VANG’ during meditation.
SatinSays products to help open the sacral chakra include:
Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
The solar plexus is located between our navel and heart. It rules our identity, self-awareness, and self-esteem. When this chakra is open we’re balanced and confident; there’s nothing in the world we can’t achieve! We’re powerful, supercharged beings with the discipline we need to get things done.
If this chakra is blocked, it’s easier to become self conscious. We may feel large amounts of shame and forget our worth.
The solar plexus chakra a is associated with the color yellow. In order to open/unblock this chakra, chant ‘LAM’ during meditation.
SatinSays products to help open the solar plexus chakra include:
Heart Chakra (Anahata)
The heart, located in our chests, opens us up to receiving and giving love. This is another place trauma is held. When our hearts are free flowing, it’s easy to see everything beautiful in the world. We are accepting, and believe we deserve, all things of love and beauty. If blocked, jealousy, possessiveness, and codependency are common.
The heart chakra a is associated with the color green. In order to open/unblock this chakra, chant ‘YAM’ during meditation.
SatinSays products to help open the heart chakra include:
Third Eye (Ajna)
This is one of the most important points. Without the power of our third eye, we would not have the energy to balance the rest of our chakras. Our third eye opens us up to higher consciousness, heightening our intuition and psychic abilities. It can also be one of the most difficult chakras to open.
When it’s blocked, we might get frequent headaches or lack the ability to make decisions.
The third eye chakra is associated with the color indigo. In order to open/unblock this chakra, chant ‘OM’ during meditation.
SatinSays products to help open the third eye chakra include:
Crown Chakra (Sahasvara):
Our final chakra is known as the crown. It gives us access to the divine and offers a purer state of consciousness. Located at the top of the head, this is how we get and stay connected to the universe.
When it’s blocked, we may feel lonely, lost, or insignificant.
The crown chakra is associated with the color violet. In order to open/unblock this chakra, chant ‘AH’ during meditation.
