We all have energetic centres in the body called Chakras. There are 7 main chakras in the body. If balanced we become healthier, happier and more in tune with ourselves and others. 

Each chakra is a wheel-like vortex spinning in a circular motion within the body. This forms a vacuum  in a centre that draws in energy in a vibratory level. It can draw in colour vibration, energy and emotions of people that we come in contact with. They don't only draw in energy, they also radiate energy and govern different organs and glands connected to other body parts that resonate of the same frequency. 

If one chakra become out of balance, it may affect the organ or gland that is connected to. Also the chakras near them also get out of sink because of a chain reaction and many bodily imbalances. Chakras are out of sink when they are overactive, under active or blocked. This is always felt on a physical, mental or emotional level. 

The benefits of learning about and energising our chakras are for harmony of mind, body and spirit. Your mind alone can not nurture your whole being, a healthy food diet also cannot solve all your problems. It's through your chakras that you can learn to balance all of you bringing you into a healthier state of consciousness. 


WORKING WITH THE CHAKRAS

Each chakra is a prism that regulates a specific set of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual concerns. This means that we can use them to diagnose problems and create a healing plan fora variety of issues. Understanding the chakras, we can:


• Use physical symptoms to clarify the emotional, mental and spiritual components of illness.


• Trace our emotional issues back to the development of a certain part of our body or to the age at which the issues originated. Emotions are the language of the body. If we can re-experience the feeling component and the physical reactions attached to a

debilitating situation, we can reprogram self-destructive beliefs and chart a whole new course.


• Isolate the mental or spiritual beliefs affecting us, thereby healing our emotional or

physical issues.


• Awaken repressed memories, including in utero and past-life memories, for the purpose of understanding clearing, and healing. By getting to the root cause of an issue, we can unlock the energy blocks it might be causing.


• Become knowledgeable parents to our own children, supporting them through each

development stage.


• Better parent our own inner child, that natural self within each of us waiting for his or her chance at life.


• Make appropriate and wise decisions by pinpointing our current development stage.


• Better understand where, how, and why we get “stuck” in harmful habits, cycles and even addictions.



In working with the chakras, we are searching for two points of awareness. First we want to identify and acknowledge our positive traits, which might be in need of recognition or revitalisation. All too often, we bury some of our best qualities beneath a deluge of conflict and misperceptions. Our second goal is to uncover, understand, and change self destructive beliefs, patterns and programs.
