Chakra Awareness, the Path to Better Health
Use Chakra awareness to improve your life and promote your own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual development. A balanced Chakra is a healthy Chakra
What are Chakras and how do they affect our health?
Chakra is an ancient word meaning "Wheel of Light". The Chakras (there are 7 main ones) are non-physical energy transfer centres located about one inch from the physical body. The 7 main chakras are located near the major nerve plexuses of the body that emerge from the spine. So they are found between the base of the spine and the top of the head. It's worth noting also that they have a front of body and back of body aspect.
Chakras have no physical form, but traditional teachings liken them to a flower, with the petals equating to the energy channels and frequencies through which the energy flows. This illustration is useful as a visual aid, because flowers can be closed or open, equating to the ability of the chakra to transfer this energy. Chakra energy is the "Life-force" energy known in varying cultures as Prana, Chi, Ki or Universal Energy. It is energy that comes from the Universe, available to everyone.
Chakras have a very positive effect on the mind and body, and for maximum health it is very important to keep these chakras open, unblocked and in balance with each other. Energy that enters the body through these chakras is directed to where it is needed in the body and so is able to promote healing.
The Crown chakra is the most important, often called the Master Chakra. The Crown chakra has the ability to open up and balance the other six chakras, allowing Universal energy to flow backwards and forwards between the universe, the physical body, the spiritual body and the Earth.
Chakras are affected by many things; like stress, for example. Shock, fear, emotional trauma and accidents, among other things, can cause a chakra to become blocked or unbalanced. This affects its ability to transfer energy efficiently, and normal functioning of the organs and other body parts in that particular area will be disrupted. Physical problems may develop, such as talking difficulties when something affects the throat chakra, or digestive problems when the blockage is in the solar plexus chakra, for example.
Rebalancing can once again achieve proper functioning of the chakras, and a restoration of good health. Chakras are the locations in the body's energy field with which healers work, and you too can work with your own energy field for self-healing. This is achieved by meditation and/or healing, either distant or present. Self-healing can also be achieved by an individual working on the front aspect of their own chakras.
