What is a Chakra?
Chakra is a Sanskrit word for spinning wheel or vortex. The chakras are the discs of energy where consciousness meets matter. People and animals have seven major chakras and several minor ones.
What does a Chakra do?
The chakras are a sophisticated network through which we send and receive information, record all experiences and respond to the environment. Each chakra is closely related to a specific nerve center, a gland in the endocrine system, and is associated with at least one organ. Certain colors, emotional themes, and beliefs correlate with each chakra.
Where are the Chakras located?
The chakras are located along the central column of the body. They are the power centers that oversee the meridians of energy which contain the individual acupuncture points. The first or root chakra is located at the tailbone and the seventh is on the crown. There are several minor chakras above the crown, in the palms of the hands, on the soles of the feet and below.
Keeping your Chakras open
Aura hygiene is as important as oral hygiene. Emotional or physical trauma, stress or unresolved issues can cause stagnation in the flow of energy between chakras. Over time stagnation may cause a blockage or disease. When one chakra shuts down, it impacts the stability and function of the other chakras. While Reiki is my go to remedy to restore the flow of prana or chi, I tend to blend several modalities together in a session based on the intuitive rapport I share with my human and animal clients.
