Chakra Magik Part 1

part 1 of 3 : the lower chakras

what are chakras?

Chakra is a sanskrit term for “wheel” that refers to swirling energy centers throughout the body that receive, express and distribute life-force energy. The seven main chakras are located along the spine at major branches of the human nervous system. They connect the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Each chakra functions at optimum level when open, aligned and in balance.

Chakras are archetypal components of consciousness and come from various ancient traditions. While the chakras have been incorporated in many spiritual practices, their existence is based not upon religion, but upon awareness of energy. Although Chakras are most known for their origin in Hinduism, the yoga philosophy and Kundalini, there are many traditions that speak of and work with energy centers: the Chinese, the Hopi, the Tibetans and even the Celts have a spiral system. The chakras are portals that spin in and out. They are wheels of energy that connect body and spirit. The Seven Master Chakras signify all life stages and are represented by the seven colors of the rainbow and the Kabbalisitc Tree of Life; a path from Earth to Heaven, from matter to supreme consciousness.

aromatherapy for the root chakra

Ganesh, the great remover of obstacles, walks a path of trust and effortless mastery. He welcomes new beginnings without expectations or attachments. He is a protector and keeper of wisdom. Ganesh is an important deity at Kate’s Magik. We have two statues of him, one at our front door serving as a guardian; the other in our retail store, reminding us that the journey is the goal and the challenges are our teachers. Every morning we offer him incense and light a candle by his side. Ganesh Perfume was created as an ally to help with transformation, remove the remnants of our emotional debris and make room for the blessings of a new season. Herbaceous Rosemary and zesty Lime are at the forefront of this aromatic creation - metaphorically representing the function of the elephant’s trunk as a remover of obstacles from our path. Encouraging Neroli brings heart energy to our missions, while Turmeric conjures the healing wisdom of the far east.
