The word “chakra” has Hindu (Sanskrit) roots and means “wheel or disk”. All living creatures have chakras. These energy vortexes are the channels through which energy flows. Chakras are “entry gates” of the aura (our personal energy field that surrounds us.) Within the physical body resides a spiritual body that contains the chakras.
Our chakras often become blocked with negative energies! It usually starts with how aware you are of your life style. Are you living a balanced life? Are you stressed out of your mind? Are you over-scheduled? Do you take time to breathe? What do you do you do for yourself? Are your worries overwhelming you?
When a chakra becomes blocked, damaged, or muddied with residual energy, then our physical and emotional health is usually affected. Another way to know when your chakras are blocked, your mood announces your energy level. Are you in a bad mood often? Are you lethargic most of the time? Are the little things in life getting you down? Is your basic enjoyment of everyday life diminished?
A balanced chakra feels calm, peaceful, less or no anxiety and balanced. Chances are good that you can handle stressful situations pretty well. If your energy is positive, the energy will flow evenly from the top of your head to your feet with ease.
When our chakras are opened and moving, energy runs from the top or our heads to our sacral chakra and up again (in a circle). If one of the chakras becomes blocked, this energy cannot move through it and all other chakras become affected and deprived. In time, with lack of energy, the chakra becomes weaker and eventually illness and disease can set in. When we start to feel “off,” the first thing we must do is to check in with ourselves and feel our body. We must start to be conscious of how we feel, but mostly important don’t ignored how you feel.
A chakra balancing treatment can be done on its own, or in conjuction with a Reiki, crystal healing, or Magic of Colour treatment.
