So what’s the big deal about energy, you ask? Well, everything is energy and the more we can tune into vibrations that resonate with us at a deeper level, the more connected we feel to the universe and ourselves. The ‘vibes’ that you sense when you meet someone or visit a place are also the awareness of energy. A place where there are a lot of fights would naturally have dense energy. Likewise, the energy at beaches is mostly light due to the presence of salt (known to detox and cleanse) in water.
Do you feel sad for no reason? Do you know someone who is always angry? Do you sometimes feel you/your closed ones lack intuitive reasoning, lack decision-making, inability to overcome grief, stress, financial woes, etc.? A lot of this could stem from an imbalance in the energy centers in the body. The basis of alternative therapies is science and one such great technique we can use to align and balance our energies is chakra balancing.
The word ‘chakra’ comes from Sanskrit word, cakra, which means ‘wheel’. It’s an ancient science; even the ancient Hindu scriptures, the Vedas have mention of chakras. Throughout history, chakras or energy centers have played an important role and the same is seen across cultures such as Chinese, Hindus, Egyptians, Greeks, Native Americans, Mayans, Incas and many more.
Chakras are energy centers/vortexes in the body that impact the physical, mental, emotional, financial, sexual, behavioral, social, environmental & spiritual aspects of our well-being.
Chakras store and distribute energy. There are seven main chakras along the spine and each chakra is associated with specific organs, systems and glands in the body. Every chakra has a specific color and element.
These seven chakras are responsible for creating our lives. When all the main seven chakras are aligned and are working together, there will be harmony in our lives at all levels. When our chakras are blocked, imbalanced or out of alignment, the free energy flow is obstructed which can lead to physical, emotional, mental or spiritual dis-ease.
Chakra Balancing is a way to clear the blockages that may have occurred in the chakras. It is critical to balance and re-align the chakras to bring the mind, body and life back into abundant flow and vibrant health.
