Chakras is Sanskrit word meaning wheel or disk. The seven chakras are spinning energy centers in the body which process subtle energy and convert it into chemical, hormonal or cellular changes in the body. Each of the chakras relates to different levels of consciousness, developmental stages of life, emotions, thoughts, colors, sounds, body functions, and much more. In order to bring harmony to our entire system, subtle energy healing and/or vibrational medicine, tries to assist the individual in bringing the chakras to balance when they are blocked or overactive.
“Imagine seven ‘wheels’ of energy spinning in your body along its centerline, from the base of your spine to the top of your head.
In many ways, the chakras are like intersections in a busy city. They channel traffic, and the traffic grid is designed to keep traffic flowing freely. But as we have all experienced, city traffic can easily become snarled. All it takes is one angry or insensitive driver blocking an intersection, and everything comes to a stop. Traffic ‘upstream’ from the blockage becomes an impassable domino effect of cars clogging the streets and blocking other intersections. And ‘downstream’, the streets are empty.”
Imagine that scenario in your energy flow. If one or more of your chakras are blocked, they cause disturbances and imbalances on both sides of the flow. The result is stagnating energy that causes poor health, undesirable life conditions, unhappiness and a sense that nothing is going right. In addition to prayer meditation and exercise, essential oils are known to aid in healing and opening of each chakra -found on thearomablog.com. When the seven chakras are in unison, life becomes peaceful and in balance. Discovering your chakras is another inspiring tool for greater health, spiritual awareness and higher conscious living.
