Understanding Chakras and Energy through the Life of Muhammad Ali

 Before this incredible Man finally left the ring he lived a courageous life, he inspired, motivated and touched so many people in so many ways, worldwide, despite adversity, hatred, ugliness; through discipline, determination, inner power and with the greatest integrity, FAITH and LOVE. Muhammad Ali demonstrated for all to see how to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee – The GREATEST!!

Muhammad Ali was a Great Man who lived his life on Purpose, with Passion, in Peace. He demonstrated congruence, integrity and alignment. I believe these are some of the qualities that made him great. There is much we can learn spiritually from his example. Alignment is about energy and how we use or abuse this powerful resource. Muhammad Ali learnt how to use his Energy in a way that made him ‘The Greatest!’. He determined that! He programmed his own destiny of greatness with his thoughts, words and actions.

Chakras Energy Mohammad Ali

What can we learn from understanding how Muhammad Ali used his
Chakras and Personal Energy Resources to become Great?
Powerful Coaching  Questions we can all ask ourselves.

  1. Vision: Ajna/Brow Chakra – See Greatness in Yourself
    Muhammad Ali had great insight and vision. He saw his own Greatness. Not only did he understand the psychology of his opponent and his enemies, he also had powerful Inner Vision. He knew his Self and his Purpose. He knew his weaknesses but focused on his strengths and that way was able to maximise and multiply his own power and make himself Great.
    Coaching Question. What do you see in yourself?

Muhammad Ali QuoteThe man who has no imagination has no wings.”


  1. Self Believe: Swadistana/ Sacral  Chakra – Unstoppable Self belief
    Muhammad Ali not only knew his own self, he believed in his self. He had faith in that which is greater than us, but he also believed in his own ability to be great. He proclaimed, owned and became his greatness. He stood in his truth and that is how he created Greatness.
    Coaching Question. What do you believe in, what do you proclaim?

Muhammad Ali Quote
            “I’ve wrestled with alligators, I’ve tussled with a whale. I done handcuffed lightning
            And thrown thunder in jail. You know I’m bad. Just last week, I murdered a rock,
            Injured a stone, Hospitalized a brick. I’m so mean, I make medicine sick.”


  1. Self Talk:  Vishudha / Throat  Chakra
    Muhammad Ali was a great orator. He used words as spells, weaving them with magic and humour. Creating greatness first with his mind and delivering it with his tongue. Then following up with impeccable actions. Extremely Powerful.
    Coaching Question.  What words do you utter to yourself?

Muhammad Ali QuoteI am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.”


  1. Integrity: Muladhara  / Root  Chakra
    Muhammad Ali fought for what he believed. His actions were congruent with his words. Through his extraordinary life, Muhammad Ali teaches us to be courageous in our actions. Right through to the very end of his life he was a fighter, he fought in the ring, he fought racism, he fought foolishness and he fought illness. He said he was the Greatest; then he fought to make himself exactly that! “The Greatest!” As a Black Man during the civil rights Era. no easy task.
    Coaching Question. What – who are you willing to fight for?

Muhammad Ali QuoteService to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”


  1.  Love and Compassion  Anahata / Heart  Chakra
    Muhammad Ali was clearly a family man and a community man; one who was willing to give of himself; hence he touched many people’s lives. His congruence, and ability to listen to his heart and follow his truth was totally inspirational. To the point of being jailed and banned from his sport and passion because he refused to go to war;’ a sign of great strength, compassion and kindness.
    Coaching Question. Can you hear and honour your heart?

Muhammad Ali Quote: “I ain’t got no quarrel with the VietCong. No Vietnamese ever called me nigger.”


  1. Self Expression     Manipura / Solar Plexus Chakra
    This is the Energy of inner power, passion, self expression, self discipline and will. Muhammad Ali was a Master of expressing his Self for the highest good. He was what I call ‘Fully Expressed’. Not afraid to say what needs to be said, and do what others fear to do, or are not prepared to work for. That is why he is ‘The Greatest’, he made it that way.
    Coaching Question. How could you be more Fully Expressed?

Muhammad Ali Quote “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am.”


  1. Truth  Saraswara / Crown Chakra
    The Crown Chakra holds a powerful yet Peaceful Energy. It’s the Energy of Oneness and Pure Consciousness, a lightness of being farmacias que venden viagra sin receta. It’s all about Knowledge, Truth and Wisdom. About being at home in your own skin and aligned with the powers greater than us, the Creative force. It’s where opposites unite and Peace reigns supreme.
    Coaching Question. Are you at peace with yourself, your power and your Love?

Muhammad Ali Quote “I know where I’m going and I know the truth, and I don’t have to be what you want me to be. I’m free to be what I want.”


I trust you have resonated with this tribute and teaching. As I say on the energy based Wellness Coach Training I run, Energy is Everything. When we learn to manage our personal Energy resources and come into greater alignment with ourselves, those around us and the world, Our Energy is Boosted and like the Champion Muhammad Ali we can live a life of Purpose, Passion and Peace and claim Health, Happiness and Success.

I will close using the words of the Great Man himself, two Muhammad Ali Quotes that I Love, to me they express Transformation, Balance and Alignment of Personal Energy, Greatness and Inner Power.

Muhammad Ali QuoteFloat like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”

Muhammad Ali Quote “When will they ever have another fighter who writes poems, predicts rounds, beats everybody, makes people laugh, makes people cry, and is as tall and extra pretty as me? In the history of the world and from the beginning of time, there’s never been another fighter like me. I am the greatest.”

With all the odds stacked against him Muhammad Ali became what he Proclaimed.
A Legend, The Greatest Sportsman that ever lived. A Prophet among Men.

And my final Coaching Question to you: What needs to happen for you to step into and claim your Greatness? 

Muhammad Ali as you hang up your fighting gloves and leave the ring forever, may you rest in Eternal, Peace, Love and Power!
Thank you for going the extra mile. Thank you for Being The Greatest!
