The chakra is blocked when the energy flow is restricted, thereby causing dis-ease and imbalance. To work with the chakra is to heal the body of old constricting patterns lodged in our body and our mind. We take in energy from the sun into different areas or Chakra. Each chakra energizes and sustains certain organs. The balance of the seven chakra activates healing in the body by transmitting energy to the inner layer of the aura--the etheric body's health aura. This corrects the polarity of our entire system.
Chakras are organizing centers for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life energies.
Our Chakras, as core centers, form the coordinating network of our complicated mind/body system. From instinctual behavior to consciously planned strategies, from emotions to artistic creations, the chakras are the master programs that govern our life, loves, learning, and illumination. As seven vibratory modalities, the chakras form a mythical Rainbow Bridge, a connecting channel linking Heaven and Earth, mind and body, spirit and matter, past and future.
Chakras can be opened or closed, excessive or deficient, or any of the various stages in between.
These states may be basic aspects of someone's personality throughout most of their life, or something that changes from moment to moment in response to a situation. An ailing chakra may be unable to change its state easily, being stuck in either an open or a closed state. The chakra then needs healing by uncovering and removing whatever is blocking it. If a chakra is blocked in a closed state, then it is unable to generate or receive energy on that particular plane, such as love energy or communication. If a chakra is blocked in an open or excessive state, that means it tends to channel all energies through that particular plane, such as using all situations to further one's power or meet sexual needs, when other forms of behavior might be more appropriate. A closed chakra is a chronic avoidance of certain energies, while an excessively open chakra is a chronic fixation.
The chakras begin at the base of the spine and finish at the top of the head. Though fixed in the central spinal column they are located on both the front and back of the body, and work through it. A chakra vibrates from inside the physical body to the outside, radiating the information through the skin. It also pulls information from outside into the body, transforming it for reception. Even out-of-body chakras connect into the physical body. This in-and-out streaming of energy means that the chakras actually look more like bands of non-ending energy, rather than the conical vortices they are often depicted as.
Each chakra vibrates or rotates at a different speed and frequency. The root or first chakra rotates at the slowest speed, the crown or seventh chakra at the highest speed. Each chakra is stimulated by its own and complimentary color, and a range of gemstones for specific uses. The chakra colors are of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The size and brightness of the wheels vary with individual development, physical condition, energy levels, disease, or stress.
Chakra systems differ with regard to location of the chakras, physical function, numbering and other details. The most commonly accepted system today is the Hindu Chakra model.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word-meaning wheel or circle. There are many definitions of chakra and they all evolve from the Sanskrit meaning.
Chakra refers to one of the seven main energy centers, which spin like wheels through and around our bodies. They serve as collection and transmission centers for both subtle, metaphysical energy and concrete, or biophysical, energy. Chakras are envisioned as either circular, or when emerging from the body, vortices that are conical in shape. Each one of these energy centers has a specific purpose in the healthy functioning of our bodies. The energies rhythmically pulsate and circulate throughout the core of this wheel, and resemble the petals of a flower. Each chakra varies in size, shape, color spin, and the amount of energy that is produced. All these characteristics affect the auric field.
