Chakra, The word itself is Sanskrit and means “wheel”. Chakras are more like spinning energy vortices, which are funnel-shaped. The wider, spinning end interacts with our auric field, whilst the stem appears to be embedded in our spine. The vortices go in both directions through the front and back of the body with the centre of the funnel joining the centre channel, which runs through the centre of our body.
We need to understand the chakra system because it has a direct connection to our physical, emotional and spiritual well being. Understanding its functions can help us respond to life with awareness rather than being unconsciously reactive.
Chakras act as step-down transformers, converting subtle energy – Prana, chi, Reiki, (universal cosmic energy) to be used by the hormonal, nervous and cellular systems of our physical body. We take in air and food to fuel our molecular building blocks. The aura and chakras take in the subtle energy, which is also fundamental for life.
As well as being linked to the physical functioning of our bodies each chakra holds a key to understanding our relationships, our strengths and weaknesses and our sense of who and what we are in the world.
The 7 major chakras each have
- Different frequencies.
- Different colours associated with them.
- Relationships with different emotional and spiritual issues.
- Connections to different endocrine gland and nerve plexus.
- Different ages at which they develop.
- Different governing elements (earth, water, fire, air, etc).
There are many other minor chakras ranging from those in the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, behind the knees, elbows and others scattered throughout the body at strategic positions relevant to the energetic functioning of our physical and etheric bodies. These are all the points along the meridians used by other therapies aimed at clearing blockages in the body such as Shiatsu, Acupuncture etc.
It is important for all the chakras to be energised and functioning efficiently for the all round well being of the individual on all levels, physical, emotional, spiritual.
