I mentioned in my last post that one of my goals this year is to begin cleansing and healing my chakra energy centers. I want to blog about my experiences with it, and how you can do your own cleansing at home.
Before I embark on this adventure, I wanted to give a little more detail about what exactly chakras are, how to target them, and what this all means. I got into this type of healing about two years ago, and it has made a huge difference in how I approach my health and my life. To me, this type of healing is really appealing because it does not have to be specific to any one religion. Though it comes from various Eastern traditions and religions, it can apply to any person of any faith. There are ways to incorporate any kind of deity within your personal practice. Say, for example, if you are Christian, you may want to include prayer, and worship during your meditation, or look to God to help you heal a certain chakra or part of the body. Balancing your chakras is simply focusing on every aspect of your body, mind, and soul. It is checking in with yourself, and making sure that every part of your life and body is circulating well. Before beginning, you must have the understanding that your mind, body, and spirit are all one. If something in your spirit is low, something with your health of body could be suffering as a result.
According to chakraenergy.com, “Throughout our body we have main energy centers, which are connected to major organs or glands that govern other body parts. Each of these main energy centers are referred to as chakra–chakra is a Sanskrit word which means wheel. A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion forming a vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibratory level.” These energy vortexes can absorb energy from anywhere. It can range from color vibrations, to the sun’s rays, to another person’s energy. Have you ever been in a room with someone who is in a super negative mood? Suddenly you start to feel negative, and low in spirit. This is a small example of how your chakras can be affected.
Chakraenergy.com says, “The seven main chakra centers are aligned along the spinal column. If there are disturbances on any level, this shows in the chakra’s vitality level. Also each of the seven main chakras is their own intelligence center. This means that each chakra is not only associated with our physical health but also controls aspects connected to our emotional, mental and belief system. On the physical level each chakra governs a main organ or gland, which is then connected to other body parts that resonate the same frequency. “
If you would like to learn a little bit more about chakras and how they can be affected, check out the video below. This series of videos on YouTube is really informational and interesting, if you can get past his funny little voice. I am going to include his lesson on Chakras here for a more concise explanation. I encourage you to keep an open mind as we begin this process.
I will begin my process of re-balancing by starting with the root chakra. Stay tuned for more posts.
