Do you love yourself? Your first answer might be “Of course I do” but how many of us truly do love ourselves fully and unconditionally? How often do you think thoughts about yourself that are not loving or depressing? Do you attract relationships, whether intimate partners, work colleagues and employers or friendships, that are not loving? Do you look at yourself in the mirror and feel gratitude and appreciation for your life and health or notice every single bump and line that you perceive as physical flaws and sink into depression? I ask again, do you love yourself?

This beautiful chakra is all about love, kindness and affection. When open, you will be friendly and compassionate and will foster harmonious relationships. If under-active, you will be cold and distant and if overactive, you will be overbearing in the love department.

The chakras in the human body are related to specific energies and consciousness, to endocrine glands, colors and psychic features. It is not always obvious to look for a linear connection between these systems, because the whole is more than the sum of the parts. If we tear out one part in order to analyze it, we might forget what its function is in relation to the whole. We can dissect a human body based upon the different biological systems or upon the different organs or upon the different cells but this would not explain a living being. Be aware that every explanation of the chakras is an approximation of what they really are. The following can help you to better understand what they are and how they function.
