WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?

 

Chakras are energy centers, or openings, through which we receive energy into our body.  Chakras take in energy your body receives from the world around you, and manipulates it for the body's benefit, before radiating the resulting energy out of the body.

Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy and light that greatly affect our well-being, whether we are aware of them or not. It is generally agreed that there are seven major chakras distributed throughout the human body.

Each chakra is associated with specific organs and endocrine glands. Chakras process subtle energy and convert it into chemical, hormonal and cellular changes in the body.  Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency, colour and on a different musical note, and has either male or female polarity.

The seven master chakras are on the center line of the body with the first five embedded within the spinal column.  The root chakra opens downwards, the crown charka opens upwards. The other five open from front to back of the body.  Each of the seven major colours has therapeutic qualities that can be linked through their resonance to the seven master charkas.

Our chakras, like our Aura, are affected by everything that happens to us – good things as well as bad.

The coloured rays affect our physical bodies, emotions, moods, mental faculties and spiritual nature.  We all have an intimate relationship with colour.  Sometimes we give ourselves a subconscious colour treatment by choosing jewellery or clothes of a certain colour, or by surrounding ourselves with specific colour vibrations in our homes, offices and gardens.

Chakras are the gateways to the soul and the energy centers of consciousness.

 

The Base and Crown Chakras are always open to allow the energy to run into the Crown from Cosmic Energy and up into the Base – Earth Energies - connecting Physical and Spiritual energies.

 

Chakras are receivers, transformers and distributors of the various forms of Vital Life Energy.  They take up vital energy from the subtle energy bodies, the surroundings, the cosmos and transform them into the frequencies needed by the various areas of the physical and the subtle bodies.  Where there is sufficient energy, it is given off into the surroundings.
