Chakras are centers of energy in our body. There are seven types of chakras present in our body located on the midline. These Chakras are connected to major organs or glands that govern other body parts. A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion forming a vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibratory level.
It is said that our body contains hundred of chakras that are the key to the operation of our being. These “spinning wheels” draw-in coded information from our surroundings. Coded information can be anything from a color vibration to ultra-violet ray to a radio or micro wave to another person’s aura. In essence our chakras receive the health of our environment, including the people we are in contact with (that’s why other people’s moods have an affect on us!). As well our chakras also radiate an energy of vibration.
We have seven main chakra centers connected to our being on several different levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. On the physical level each chakra governs a main organ or gland. Each of the seven main chakras is their own intelligence center. This means that each chakra is not only associated with our physical health but also controls aspects connected to our emotional, mental and belief system.
Chakras can have various levels of activity. Open chakras are considered operative. In our body some chakras are not open enough and other are over active. Ideally chakras should be balanced. There exist lot of techniques to balance the chakras.
