Let's Talk About Chakras
You hear about them all the time, but what exactly are they?
I mention them all the time, and you’ve probably heard them referenced in many spiritual conversations, but unless you do your own research, most people don’t know how deep this gets, and how powerful chakras actually are when it comes to learning more about your body and energy.
So what are chakras and why do we talk about them so much?
“Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means ‘wheel’ and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.”
Now, people usually refer to the seven main chakras that run along your spine (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown), but some say there are 114 different chakras that expand onto different body parts and your aura.
Your chakras, or energy centers, each correlate to a specific color, region, and purpose. Through Reiki, readings, and other healing modalities, one can find out if certain chakras are imbalanced, blocked or excessive/deficient. An imbalanced, or blocked, chakra can result in both physical and emotional malfunctions.
I’ll be doing a deep dive into each of the seven main chakras, along with some other notable chakras, for my membership community each month. I’ll include basic information, along with the traumas and abuses that can lead to imbalances for each chakra, how that might show up emotionally and/or physically, healing practices and affirmations…just to name a few things.
