What are the Chakra’s?
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “disc” and are the entry gates of the aura. Chakras can be visualised as flowers or an individual vortex. The chakras act as transducers for life force energy connecting the subtle body, distributing life force energy in the physical and subtle bodies, providing the source of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy.
There are 72,000 chakras in the body, many are small and insignificant, 72 of them are significant, however most work with the 7 major chakras, I work with up to 15, allowing for ascension. The chakras are aligned along the centre of the body, from the spines base to the top of the head. They are found in the ethereal body and contain the spiritual energy on the physical plane. Chakras rotate, either clockwise (male/Yang) or anti-clockwise (female/Ying).
The chakras absorb and transmit energy to and from the universe, nature, people and even things. When chakras are not balanced, wide open or are blocked the flow of energy is restricted and this can lead to physical, emotional, mental or spiritual dis-ease rather than free-flowing optimum health. They influence our body shape, glandular processes, physical elements, thoughts and behaviour. The chakras are expressed on the physical body by endocrine glands.
The chakras are associated with specific colours, which determine aspects of our emotion and behaviour. Crystals, essential oils, sound healing and herbs can have a great healing effect on the chakras.
Chakras can be accessed through meditation, guided visualisation, crystals and gemstones, aromatherapy and pendulums (dowsing).
The status of the chakras can be assessed through the hands. The first chakra can be assessed over the wrist, the second at the thumb, the third over the middle finger, the fourth over a small finger, the fifth over the index finger, the sixth over the ring finger and finally the seventh chakra over the palm.
