Scientists tell us that everything is made up of energy. Ancient cultures have known this for thousands of years.
To speak briefly of the Chinese; their well-developed and proven healing systems are based around even and unencumbered flow of energy. They have detailed maps of Meridians, which are energy pathways around the body.
This energy has intense focal points called Chakras. There are 7 main chakras on the body.
The Seven Chakras
The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine.
It vibrates with the color frequency of Red.
The Naval Chakra is located in the lower abdomen.
It vibrates with the color frequency of Orange.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is located between the navel and sternum.
It vibrates with the color frequency of Yellow.
The Heart Chakra is located in the center of the chest at the same height as the physical heart. It vibrates with the color frequency of Green.
The Throat Chakra is located in the throat region.
It vibrates with the color frequency of Blue.
The Brow Chakra (Third Eye) is located in the center of the forehead.
It vibrates with the color frequency of Indigo.
The Crown Chakra is located on top of the head.
It vibrates with the color frequency of Violet, or pure white light.
A healthy system works on an even flow of energy. But what about when the flow of energy gets blocked?
Like water running through a garden hose… one small kink and the entire system is dysfunctional. If just one of the chakra centers is out of balance it can affect everything. And yes, it does feel like you are out of balance.
Now when that happens with the car, you get a wheel alignment. But what about the body? You can go and see an energetic healer for a treatment. Be sure to seek referrals and ask many questions before you begin. It is vital you feel comfortable with and trust the person who is going to work on you.
Alternatively, you can work on yourself. But for those of us without a developed psychic sight, how do we know what chakras need attention? Luckily, there are often proven physical, emotional and mental conditions that suggest where attention is needed. When you get the hang of it, it makes sense and your intuition will guide you further.
I have listed several examples below to highlight the commonsense approach.
I.e. A friend or family member is acting in a bad manner. You wish to tell them your thoughts, but are worried it may lead to further upset. You want to speak your truth – but don’t.
You catch a small cold and although you usually heal quickly, and even though you have taken everything under the sun, you just can’t get rid of the sore throat.
In this ‘obvious’ example, the energy of the throat chakra needs clearing and energizing. You words are you energy. If they stagnate in your throat the energy ceases to have an even flow. To fix it, say your words! If not to the person, to a friend, to your diary, or even to a tree… just get them out.
Other examples are boundless, but with an understanding of what the chakras are responsible for and what they govern of the human body and emotion, directing your focus becomes natural.
I.e. If someone does wrong by you, at the instant you find out you can physically feel sick in the stomach. We have all experienced this gut wrenching feeling at one time. To overcome this situation, focus your healing around your stomach, or third chakra.
If you are flighty or lost, sending love to your base (root) chakra will ground you.
The loss of a loved one – heal your heart.
Maintaining a healthy and balanced system is important for those of us who don’t want to wait for imbalance to occur. If you get the car serviced when the log book suggests, it doesn’t cost you as much as if you wait till a major breakdown.
Meditation and the Chakras
Meditation is the best way to maintain the optimal function of your spiritual energy.
When in a meditative state you are more in tune with your body and your physical / spiritual function. If you give your body the chance, it will heal itself, and practicing Meditation gives your body that chance.
