Spinning Energy Centers: The Seven Chakras
Root Chakra [Muladhara]
Also known as Muladhara, the Root chakra represents our foundation. This chakra sits at the base of the spine of human beings and gives a feeling of being grounded. When the root chakra awakens, you feel confident in your ability to withstand any challenge that comes your way. And when it is blocked, you feel frightened as if you are standing on unstable ground with no one in your support.
Sacral Chakra [Swadhisthana]
Swadhisthana or the Sacral Chakra helps you in becoming aware of how you relate to emotions as well as the emotions of others. It also takes care of your sexual energy and creativity. People whose sacral chakra is blocked tend to feel a lack of control over their lives.

Solar Plexus Chakra [Manipura]
Also referred to as the third chakra, Manipura helps you in building up self-confidence and having control over your life. Have you ever butterflies in the pit of your stomach? If yes, it was the Solar plexus chakra doing its work. If your Manipura is blocked, your emotions are all over the place and you might feel unnecessary shame and self-doubt.
