When our chakras are balanced, maximum vitality and health is experienced. Physical or emotional trauma will affect the corresponding chakra. Balancing can be accomplished in a number of ways...At the central core of our body spin seven main wheel-like energy centers called chakras. Chakras have the ability to receive, assimilate and transmit energy. Each chakra is a vortex, spinning life-force energy into or out of the body. In fact, the word chakra is from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel of light". There are 7 major chakras connected to and a part of the physical body. All are located on the torso and head. Each chakra transmits and receives life-force energy often called "chi", "qi", "prana", or "universal intelligence". There are also many minor chakras, most of which are located at the joints of the physical body. When we are in a state in ill health, the chakras may be distorted, out of alignment or even stagnant. When this happens, life force energy cannot flow in and out freely and the physical body may suffer. Stress, inability to express emotions, beliefs incongruent with Truth, disconnection from a higher power, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, exposure to toxicity, etc. can cause the chakra system to close down. Consequently such imbalances manifest in the form of physiological disorders. Each chakra resonates with a particular frequency of vibration and are an integral part of vibration therapy. Chakras are balanced by inviting them back to their natural state of vibration & frequency. The physical body is a unit made of many different integral parts that are designed to be self-correcting. The body's job is to maintain balance and the free-flow of energy. The chakras are an energetic gateway, feeding the body's pranic energy and providing an outlet for the release and dispersal of spent energy. Comparing the chakra network to a set of interconnected gears, we can logically conclude that if any of the gears spin too fast or too slow in relation to the others, an unbalanced condition arises thereby creating a dysfunctional system. The Kundalini is a coiled helical energy that is located at the base of the lowest chakra "mooladhara" chakra. When awakened she rises and pierces all the other chakras toward her destination at the top of the head "sahasrara" chakra. Once this occurs, the individual experiences a cool energy radiating from the crown of the head accompanied by a state of complete spiritual bliss and contentment. Our chakra balancing techniques are usually combined with other alternative therapies, since holistic approaches require an understanding of the chakras for healing the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of the individual.
