The word Chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel,” “circle” and “cycle”. It is described by many as a spinning wheel of light. Although many people are familiar with the word Chakra, ancient cultures worldwide have similar conceptions of energy wheels or vortices. The “Circle” is used in a variety of senses, symbolizing the endless rotation of primordial source energy. The chakra therefore is an energy centre, a cosmic self generating and regenerating battery. In the yogic tradition, seven chakras (of the 88,000) are considered the major chakras and are embodied within our physical bodies and are connected to different nerve plexuses within the body. All of the acupuncture points (Energy Release Points) also act as chakras.
Chakras as invisible, rechargeable batteries
Chakras have the ability to recharge and regenerate through their spin, and work together through their connection to your centre channel. The centre channel is a shaft of energy that runs vertically from the top of your head to the base of your spine. This energy is both masculine and feminine. Masculine energy spins in a counter-clockwise direction, feminine energy spins in a clockwise direction. When these two energies are in perfect balance, they create the flower of life.
Chakras connect your spiritual bodies to your physical one.
Chakras regulate the flow of subtle energy throughout the network that runs through the physical body which in turn influence our physical, emotional and mental states. Their health and integrity are maintained through grounded and balanced lifestyles as well as positive thoughts toward the self and others. Sometimes chakras become blocked because of stress, emotional or physical problems. If the body’s ‘energy system’ can not flow freely it is likely that problems will occur. The consequence of irregular energy flow may result in physical illness and discomfort or a sense of being mentally and emotionally out of balance.
Essential oil blends such as those found in our chakra healing mists help activate subtle energy, serving to regenerate and balance the chakra system. For whole body balancing choose Balance Vibrational Healing Mist.
