We all need something in our lives that absorbs us into the current moment, creating a ‘flow’ of blissful immersion into the task or activity. This type of ‘flow’ of engagement stretches our intelligence, skills, and emotional capabilities.
Flow State, in positive psychology, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one's sense of time.

Chakra Balancing ensures the body’s energy system is running as designed; Chakras are centers within our body’s physical, and etheric energy fields. They act as gates through which Life Force flows in and out of our being. Often referred to as the Rainbow Bridge—These vital energy centers are sensitive to energy and often become clogged with residues from physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual disturbances and traumas. The centers act as a pathway to spiritual enlightenment and well-being.
The natural flow of movement through the chakra may become inhibited by residual energy. Theoretically the effects throughout the bridge will likely have a negative impact on the organs and cells of the body to the associated chakra. This also affects our emotions, thoughts, the quality of our outlook, and wellbeing. When negative energy is held, or lodged within a chakra, we can feel stuck or constricted in certain areas of our life.
The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. A literal translation, ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’; A chakra is like a whirling vortex of energy. Within our bodies, we have seven well documented major energy centers, in addition to many more minor ones. Esoteric teachings state that each of the seven chakras are governed by spiritual laws; principles of consciousness are used to cultivate greater harmony, fulfillment, and wellness in our world.
|Muladhara (Root) Is related to survival, security, and is the closest to the earth, resting at the base of the spine. The color associated with it is red—this is our connection to the material. To keep this chakra healthy, exercises such as dancing, jogging, or jumping are beneficial.|
|Svadhishthana (Sacral): This chakra is related to sensuality, sexuality, and desire for pleasure. It is in the lower abdomen and its color is orange.

|Manipura (Navel): Its color is yellow, and it is related to our power in this world. Its natural element is fire, and this is where the “fire in your belly” term derives from; this is where decisions come to rest. A chakra, with balance allows you to control your destiny, feel your power and accomplish your goals.|
|Anahata (Heart): Green is the color of this chakra and it relates naturally to love and compassion of others, being at our heart center. This fourth chakra is associated with air—it is our channel of metaphysical connection to other beings. Healthy relationships, pets, family, even appreciation of beauty and nature enhance the health of this chakra.|
|Vishuddha (Throat): The throat center or communication center is where you put power to air in this world. It is blue when this chakra is flowing at optimum levels; you can ask for what you need. You reflect your truth in the world through Vishuddha, your communication to other beings. Singing, chanting, and breathing exercises can enhance the charge of this chakra.|
