When I first heard the word, "CHAKRA," I thought it was a foreign language. I had no idea such a word existed. Little did I know that sometime in the future I would have an up close and personal relationship with 7 chakras, which happened to be my own, that I didn't know that I had. To the average person, much like my former self, chakras may have no real meaning or value in their life. You don't know what you don't know. It's perfectly understandable. The good news is . . . your perceptions and knowledge can always change as you grow in new knowledge right now.
You live in a vehicle called, a body and within that body there are 7 main energy systems called, chakras which can be viewed through electromagnetic imaging. The imaging displays the chakras as circular energy wheels vibrating and rotating within the body. Energy healers can often feel the vibrational flow of the chakras above the body or within the body. The chakras are like funnels and can expand and contract. They can also vibrate at a high resonance or a low resonance. They can rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. They are alive with energy and they are a big part of you.
If you are new to this world of chakras, you might be asking, "What are chakras for?" Or some readers might be thinking, "What I don't know won't kill me." Either way, your new awareness of the chakras can support you in having a healthier, more balanced life, if you are willing to go the distance with me. What have you got to lose? Answer: PURE ENERGY!
In a simply analogy, we can say that chakras are like circular energy batteries sitting in your body in strategic locations. They are energetically connected to your organ systems, fueling them with energy and vitality. Like any normal battery, chakras can be charged or drained, depending on what's going on in your life and how you are treating your body. Let's clarify something before we go on. When we say "your body," we are referring to your physical body, your emotional body, your mental body and you spiritual body. All four bodies are interconnected and have a great affect on each other. Let's explore this concept further.
If you are feeling emotionally stressed, where do you feel it in your physical body? Your shoulders? Your stomach? Your head? How are you feeling spiritually in the moment you are in physical pain or how are you feeling mentally if you are feeling emotionally drained with deep depression. All four bodies are in constant communication with one another and the energy flowing can affect the energy of your chakras which are connected to your organ systems. Are you getting the picture?
Being aware of each chakra and their role in the body can support you in bringing things into balance in your life. Before we move onto the test to see which chakras could be out of balance, lets briefly cover their placement, purpose and role they secretly play in your life.
The 7 main chakras run from the top of the head, along the spinal column, down to the base of the spine. Energies run up and down this lively channel, communicating with the bodies organ systems. Below we briefly cover the seven major chakras from the top of the head to the base of the spine and their associated purpose.
1. Crown Chakra - Your energy center that is connected to God, or the I Am presence.
2. Third Eye Chakra - Your energy center that is connected to intuition, inner knowing.
3. Throat Chakra - Your energy center connected to speaking, using your voice.
4. Heart Chakra - Your energy center connected to receiving and giving love.
5. Solar Plexus Chakra - Your energy center connected to your sense of power.
6. Sacral Chakra - Your energy center connected to your creativity and creation.
7. Root Chakra - Your energy center connected to your sense of safety, security & stability.
By now you must be curious to know how your chakras are doing? Are they energized and vibrant? Are they sluggish? Are they closes or blocked? Your test results are simply an indication of which chakras may need attention and are not necessarily definitive in their results. There are many more questions that could be asked with respect to each chakra, however this test is designed to bring in further awareness for inviting health and balance into your personal life. Why not take our simple test below and see hoe you do.
