Your 7 Chakras are an energetic ecosystem running through your body, each one influencing a unique area of your life.
When a Chakra is strong, its corresponding area of life thrives. And when it’s not, you’ll likely experience physical, mental, emotional and spiritual blocks.
So do you have a favorite way to open and balance your Chakras?
Many people meditate. Some practice yoga. Others craft elaborate daily rituals to keep themselves in optimal energetic condition.
But if you’re a beginner or you just don’t have the time or patience to do this kind of work, there’s an easier way to open your Chakras:
Just open your mouth, and eat :-)
Yes, according to chakra healing tradition, there are specific foods known for balancing each of the 7 Chakras.
Below I’ve included a list of these foods, so you know what to eat and when for optimal energetic wellbeing.
See what foods you need, stock up on them, and start adding them in moderation into your daily meals:
1. Food for your Root Chakra
Your Root Chakra is located at the base of your spine and influences your sense of security and financial prosperity.
Food that opens your Root Chakra is focused on amplifying your sense of safety in the world, your money magnetism, and in helping you thrive instead of just survive. Try enjoying some:
- Onions and garlic
- Dandelion Root Tea
When to eat them: When you’re about to make a big financial decision, when you feel insecure in your wealth or career, or when you feel unsafe for any reason at all.
2. Food for your Sacral Chakra
Your Sacral Chakra is located just below your navel. It controls your sense of intimacy and connection with others, and also has a strong influence on your creative force.
Food for your Sacral Chakra tends to amplify your sensuality, and allows you to connect better both with others, and with your own ocean of inner inspiration. Try eating:
- Passion fruit
- Oranges and tangerines
When to eat them: When you’re feeling disconnected from others, when you’re feeling sexually blocked or disempowered, or when you feel out of touch with your own emotions.
3. Food for your Solar Plexus Chakra
Resting just at the pit of your stomach, your Solar Plexus Chakra is the seat of your self-worth and self-esteem.
Food for your Solar Plexus chakra is intended to help you more confidently and effectively assert yourself and your opinions. Some good ones are:
- Oranges and Mandarins
- Sweet potatoes
- Rosemary, either in food or tea
When to eat them: When you’re experiencing self-doubt, when you have trouble following through, when you find it hard to make decisions, and when you struggle with your own self-discipline.
4. Food for your Heart Chakra
Your Heart Chakra resides at the point of your physical heart, and regulates your ability to express love both for yourself and the people around you.
Food for your Heart chakra helps amplify your sense of compassion, deepen your relationships and feel at peace with your life circumstances. Try eating:
- Hawthorn Berry tea
When to eat them: When you’re experiencing difficulty maintaining healthy relationships, when you find it difficult to allow love into your life, or when you are feeling low on vital energy.
5. Food for your Throat Chakra
At the base of your throat you’ll find your Throat Chakra, which is the Chakra of your True Voice.
Food for your Throat Chakra empowers you to communicate more effectively, speak your mind, and ease your nerves whenever you need to speak your truths. Add more of the following to your diet:
- Chamomile and red clover tea
When to eat them: When you’re having trouble speaking up, when you feel nervous about speaking in public, when you find it hard to express yourself in other ways like through writing, singing or even dancing.
6. Food for your Third Eye Chakra
Your Third Eye Chakra is located at the center of your forehead. Its primary purpose is to regulate your intuition, also known as your sixth sense.
Food for your Third Eye Chakra helps amplify your intuitive sense, make the right decisions with limited information, and perceive things others can’t. Just take more:
- Purple kale
- Concord grapes
- Purple carrots
- Mint or lavender tea
When to eat them: When you second-guess yourself, when you find it hard to let go, or when it’s hard to make a decision and stick to it.
