As you may know or not, everything in the universe is energy. The planets, the stars, plants and most certainly, our bodies. Every living thing is made up of a life force that drives it. In the human body, there are energy centers that move inside it; 7 main energy centers. The 7 chakras.
The word chakra translates to wheel in old Sanskrit. Simply because the force of life within you spins and rotates like a wheel. The 7 main centers of energy, or chakras, start at the bottom of the spine and moves all the way up to the top of the head. Each of a balanced, healthy person's 7 main chakras delivers the exact right amount of energy to the mind, body and the spirit. On the other end, if a chakra energy centers is blocked or too open, a person’s health can be in danger; especially his/her mental health and state. Becoming in tuned with your 7 chakras can enable you to notice when one or more of your body’s natural energy cycles are out of whack. And learning about your 7 chakras can also enable you to connect with your spiritual, emotional and physical imbalances as a means of living a more harmonious and healthy lifestyle.
As you learn about the 7 chakras, even now you can begin to tune in and see if you can feel them at work. Its all energy. You can start by taking deep breaths in a quiet place and putting your focus on your body. Allow any stress or tension to slowly slip away. Visualize yourself in the middle of a forest, on a secluded beach or in your favorite place of serenity. One by one, tune your attention from the base of your spine all the way up to the top of your head. Once you get familiar with your energy centers, you will be able to visualize the corresponding colors as bright lights, spinning wheels along your chakra areas. It will be possible to sense the energy inside slightly, very much or not a bit. May seem a little different at first if you’re just beginning, but just go with the natural flow of your body and all will be well. Either way, all IS well.
The 7 main chakras have specific names, meanings, symbols, colors and locations of each. It may sound a little complicated at first, but it is in fact simple once you become familiar with them. Each energy center has a specific purpose as well. The following paragraphs list each main chakra, healing of and symptoms of an energy center that has balance or an imbalance to it. We will start from the bottom, the first chakra, and work our way to the top, the seventh chakra. Ok, let’s go.
