“Chakra” is the ancient Sanskrit word for the seven central points of energy that reside within, helping to balance our physical, emotional and spiritual state. Buddha Teas presents a line of chakra buddha teas expertly crafted from herbs that resonate with each chakra, offering stimulating and flavorful teas empowered by the essence of crystals.
The Various Tea Blends Include:
Known as sahasrara, in the order of chakras, the crown chakra is the seventh and final one. The crown chakra is located at the top of the head, is represented by the blooming lotus, and, driven by consciousness, has the function of connecting us to that which is considered universal. A balanced crown chakra can lead to feelings of completion, and a consistent sense of bliss.
Third Eye Chakra
Known as ajna, the center of insight and intuition, the third eye chakra is located between the eyebrows. Sometimes is described as being located behind the eyes, in the middle of the head. This chakra is the main point of intuition, focus, knowledge, and when attuned, can assist with comprehending the big picture. An imbalance of this chakra may lead to poor decision-making, self-doubt, and self-deception. When not balanced, this chakra will also likely cause sleep disturbances, as it is associated with the pineal gland, where sleep is regulated. If you desire cultivating mystical experiences, it is suggested that working with the third chakra can help take you there. A useful affirmation to concentrate on while meditating with this chakra is: I see.
Known as vishuddha, meaning “voice and truth,” this chakra is located in the throat, and is the center of our communication. This chakra focuses on assisting with giving voice to thoughts, and is key to developing and maintaining confidence in one’s ability to speak up, to speak one’s truth. When your 5th chakra is out of balance, communication may become difficult, and you may struggle to say what you mean, or to reveal your truth. When meditating to balance this chakra, think or speak out loud, I speak my truth; I heal myself.
The Sanskrit word for the 4th Chakra, Anahata can be defined as sort of, well, winning at life. This abundant move towards ultimate healing reveals itself when you feel balanced and calm, and when you are able to avoid that which may cause you to suffer.
The 4th Chakra, located in the heart center. Specifically at the first through third thoracic vertebrae, is considered the place where emotional healing blooms.
Solar Plexus Chakra
The Sanskrit word for the 3rd Chakra, Manipura can be defined: Mani = pearl, Pura = place, or “City of Jewels.” Unravel the intricacies stored inside this rich power center and you begin to understand why.
The Solar Plexus Chakra, or 3rd Chakra, is considered the place where the ego lives. When you’re confronted with injustices, either aimed at yourself or another, do you speak up with confidence and calm? Is your “gut” in good working order? (Both metaphorically, as well as physically.)
Swadhisthana the Sanskrit word meaning “one’s own abode,” is an apt definition for an energy center focused on personal pleasure. Encased in this description is the essence of water, which extends idealistically to the concepts of flow, flexibility, and dare we say fun!
The sacral chakra is located in the lower abdominal region, and “inner pelvis,” as some describe. Ensuring the health of Svadhisthana should be a priority to those who might be feeling stuck in a cycle of low energy, depression, or even workaholic tendencies. Those with digestive, urinary and kidney issues, and low back trouble, as well as those who consistently find themselves in challenging relationships, or no relationships, should consider putting attention on healing this chakra.
Mula root + Adhara support = Muladhara (Sanskrit) This chakra represents the foundation of that which is you. When this first energy center of the body is in balance, you feel safe in the world, and free to trust in ways that allow you to take healthy risks, knowing that all will be well.
If you regularly suffer from anxiety, fear, or perhaps bad dreams while you sleep, or if you are dealing with issues of the bladder, colon, or low back and feet. You might want to focus some healing attention on your root chakra. Rather than seeking safety in the outside world, it might be wise at this time to explore your inner world.
