The Chakra Voice Connection

by Justine Lucas

We know singing to be a form of self-expression, but it is also a powerful healing tool. By exploring our voice, we can directly tap into our nervous system, our circulatory system, and our emotional body, which is the deepest most difficult-to-reach access point for systemic healing. By aligning, balancing, or channeling the energy of each chakra through singing, you can unleash your true voice and experience a transformative journey of self-discovery. 
In this article, we’ll explore how singing from your chakras can help improve your voice, aid you in your inner work, heal other elements of your life, and nurture your spirit.
Understanding the Chakras:
Chakras are often described as spinning wheels of energy, located along the central channel of the body. The word chakra literally means “wheel” or “circle” in Sanskrit. Chakras play a significant role in influencing our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. There are seven main chakras within the body and five chakras outside of the body, each with its unique qualities and characteristics.
🔴 Root Chakra - Strengthening Your Foundation:

The Root Chakra, situated at the base of the spine, represents stability, grounding, and physical presence. Singing from this chakra helps strengthen your vocal foundation, providing a solid support system for your voice. By connecting with the Root Chakra, you develop a sense of security and confidence, allowing you to project your voice with strength and conviction, and even stand up for your needs more easily in your personal life.


🟠 Sacral Chakra - Embracing Emotions:

The Sacral Chakra, located in the lower abdomen, governs creativity, passion, and emotional expression. Singing from this chakra encourages you to embrace and express your emotions through your voice. Singing from the Sacral Chakra enables you to fully express your emotions and create a lasting emotional impact with your songs. In working with this chakra, you are able to move through emotions faster, releasing their energy from your body and finding your strength again.


🟡 Solar Plexus Chakra - Finding Your Power:

The Solar Plexus Chakra, positioned in the upper abdomen, is associated with confidence, self-esteem, and personal power. When singing from this chakra, you radiate self-assurance on stage and in your own life, allowing your true essence to shine through. This is a great way to overcome stage fright and work through fear blocks. Singing from your Sacral Chakra harnesses your personal power and helps you direct your creative drive towards any desired goal, in music or in life.


 🟢 Heart Chakra - Connecting and Healing:

The Heart Chakra, situated at the center of the chest, governs love, compassion, and empathy. Singing from this chakra fosters a genuine connection with your audience and your own inner landscape, as you learn to express musically from a place of love and emotional depth. By tapping into the Heart Chakra, your voice becomes a conduit for compassion, touching the hearts of those who listen and offering comfort and solace in the loving vibrational power of your song. 


🔵 Throat Chakra - Authentic Communication:

The Throat Chakra, located in the throat area, represents communication, self-expression, and creativity. In working with this chakra, your voice becomes a clear and authentic expression of your Self. This chakra also helps you gain stronger vocal awareness, which can be used to develop your ear, refine your tone, and expand your melodic range. In working with this chakra, you will not only find it easier to express freely, but also speak your truths and set boundaries easier in life.


🟣Third Eye Chakra - Connecting with Intuition:

The Third Eye Chakra, positioned between the eyebrows, governs intuition, insight, and imagination. Singing from this chakra allows you to tap into your creative instincts and interpret music in a unique and soulful way. By connecting with your Third Eye Chakra, you gain a deeper understanding of the essence of the music, creating performances that are insightful and spiritually uplifting. In opening this chakra, you are more open to other points of view, and can learn much more in life. 


👑 Crown Chakra - Transcending Your Voice:

The Crown Chakra, located at the top of the head, represents mental clarity, spiritual connection and transcendence. Singing from this chakra enables you to channel a higher energy while singing and combine that channel with your own intellectual prowess. By aligning with your Crown Chakra, you experience a sense of oneness with the music and the universe, creating an ethereal and transformative experience for yourself and your audience. 


✨ Soul Star Chakra - Finding Your Purpose:

The Soul Star chakra, located about a foot above the head, is associated with pure spirit energy. Singing from this chakra can give you an out-of-body experience, allowing your own personal life problems to completely melt away. When you sing from your soul star chakra, you are, in essence, pure flowing energy. Connecting to this chakra can also create more opportunity, abundance, and manifestation in your life, as it provides clarity and helps you direct your energy towards your own true values.

Singing from your chakras is a powerful and transformative practice that enhances both your voice and spirit. By aligning and channeling the energy of each chakra, you create a harmonious connection between your physical and spiritual self, unlocking the true potential of your voice and embracing your authentic expression. As you embark on this journey of self-discovery through singing, you'll find your voice becoming more resonant, expressive, and soulful. This practice also leads to a deeper sense of inner peace, fulfillment, and spiritual growth. 

Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots"  ~ Rumi.

While we may admire many music artists and many styles of singing, the best thing you can do for yourself as a singer is to simply get to know your own voice. This takes patience, practice, and whole body listening. Chakras are the energetic centers that carry all the information you need to know, and like your voice, they're always with you ~ ready to help you learn.
