Chakra Basics

Chakra Basics
The human body is a complex energy system. It is surrounded by an energy field known as the aura. Additionally, along the spine are energy centers known as chakras. The chakras are the channels for the vital life forces, that when flowing in a balanced and harmonious way, activate and maintain well-being in the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.

There are seven major chakras, and each chakra resembles a swirling vortex that originates from a specific place on the spine. Each chakra governs a part of the physical, mental, and emotional body.

When the chakras are out of balance, you may not notice it at first. It may start off as a vague feeling that’s emotional in nature; melancholy, or listlessness, and lack of motivation. However, if the imbalance continues to be untreated, overall well-being can be greatly impacted. This can manifest in your life as trouble with relationships, self-care, trust issues, low self-esteem, or lacking purpose and direction.

To bring the chakras back into balance, you can visit an energy healer, or you can start by trying a simple visualization in which you see each of the chakras spinning brightly and clearly.

Keeping your chakras in balance is a vital part of your good health and well-being. It allows them to work in harmony, keeping you in balance on a physical, mental, and emotional level.
