When it comes to love, the first chakra that we think about is obviously the heart chakra. But when it comes to relationships and love, the heart chakra isn’t the only one you need to consider. Love’s broad and far-reaching energy relates to all seven chakras.
Chakras are the centers of spiritual energy in the human body. Each one corresponds to a specific physical organ and also has certain spiritual, emotional, and psychological properties. Here is a brief description of the chakras and how they relate to love and romantic relationships.
The Root Chakra
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine and relates to our survival instincts. It’s sometimes called the “primal chakra.” When we approach love with a primal mentality, we unfortunately tend to remain in unhealthy and toxic relationships.
For example, if you constantly fear you’ll lose your partner, the relationship becomes more about a compulsive, co-dependent urgency to be together, and less about an easy, loving togetherness. Grounding is required to harmonize this chakra’s energy. Supporting your root chakra means your relationship decisions will be made from a grounded place of calmness and awareness, which strengthens your bond’s foundation.
The Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is located at the lower abdomen, just below the navel. This chakra is influenced by the planet Venus and is all about our sexuality, connections, and creativity. It’s magnetized by the force of emotions. Its energy is halfway between the root chakra’s survival instincts the solar plexus chakra’s resolve. Imbalance in the sacral chakra can lead to a manifestation of manipulative energy, which causes abusive, controlling relationships and a loss of personal creative power.
Balance is necessary to harmonize this chakra. Instead of allowing this chakra’s passionate energy to direct your decision-making in relationships, power and pleasure should be balanced with self-control and self-awareness. Relationships that come from a harmonized sacral chakra can be passionately creative and intensely tender, loving, and fulfilling.
The Solar Plexus Chakra
The solar plexus chakra is located at the upper abdomen, below the breast bone. Its main characteristics are self-esteem, self-confidence, and personal power, and it’s the chakra responsible for our “gut feelings.” The solar plexus chakra empowers us to use the emotional and creative aspects of the sacral chakra’s insights to build stronger bonds in our relationships.
An imbalance in the solar plexus chakra manifests in a relationship as excessive authority and control over people, possessiveness, aggression, and poorly defined direction. A balanced solar plexus chakra brings confident energy and an effortless expression of your will in a relationship, which leads to peaceful relationships and stronger bonds with your surroundings and other people.
The Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest at the same height as the heart. This chakra permits you to nurture your innermost element of love and to experience genuine inner peace and joy. The heart chakra is the center of loving energy and is easiest to understand in the context of romantic relationships.
As the center chakra, the heart chakra is regarded as the bridge chakra between the energies of the lower three chakras and the higher three chakras. Relationships rooted in the heart chakra form between partners who are already committed to working on their own character and self-development. This is a great start for any partnership! Knowing you’re on the same “team” as your partner and share similar goals of health, connection, and happiness means you can be more flexible and open.
The Throat Chakra
The throat chakra, located at the throat area, is the center of authentic self-expression and speaking our personal truth. The throat chakra can get blocked in a relationship when one partner gets distracted by appearances and forms an unrealistic conception of who they truly are. They may focus on trying to impress the other by trying to be somebody they’re not.
A balanced throat chakra leads to mutually fulfilling relationships in which both partners feel comfortable and free to be who they are and to express themselves with no inhibitions. In partnerships that honor this chakra, each partner feels comfortable around the other and fully supports the expression of the other’s truth.
The Third Eye Chakra
The third eye chakra is located above the eyebrows, between the eye, and is influenced by the planet Saturn. If you’re feeling disconnected, unworthy, or frustrated, the third eye chakra has a powerful energy to help regain focus, see the big picture, and tap into your natural intuition and wisdom.
Partners that form a relationship under the influence of the third eye chakra practice self-realization together. Their deep psychic harmony commits them to meditate on the highest truths of the universe together. These karmic unions are forged to seek deeper meaning and to work together to move forward on their spiritual paths.
The Crown Chakra
The crown chakra is located just above the top of the head and is all about manifesting the love you desire by connecting to your inner wisdom. A relationship formed under a balanced crown chakra overcomes difficulties through the partners’ shared connection expressed in symbols, goals, and rituals. The couple possesses a profound sense of internal spiritual connection, and each partner has a rich inner life to tap into in times of trouble. Achieving this highest relationship level is only possible if you truly love yourself.
Balanced crown chakra energy connects the self to the spirit. This is only possible if you can recognize the spirit within you. Once you tap into your inner source of unconditional love, you will manifest outward unconditional love.
Chakras embody powerful guidance for healthy lives and healthy relationships. Their energetic gifts and wisdom help you grow spiritually and emotionally and lead you into successful relationships created with intention and awareness.
