Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel or disk, sometimes referred to as “wheels of light”.
The energy present in each chakra affects us on all dimensions, the spiritual, emotional, physical and mental. These energy centers act as a gateway between dimensions such as the energy generated from emotional activity influencing the functions of our physical body. Or the energy generated from stress, and emotional state, does affect our physical body with nervousness, anxiety, etc. This interaction, in turn, influences our actions in the outside world and shapes our interactions with others.
Chakras are affected by our thoughts, beliefs, foods, exercise, meditation, alcohol, drugs, medications, music, chanting, and our actions. Each chakra vibrates or spins at its own frequency depending on the balance of that chakra with the entire system. If one chakra is over active or under active it impacts the functioning of every other chakra. When our chakras are out of balance we feel out of sorts, depressed, overwhelmed, overjoyed, sick, and cranky or even body pain. [Read more…]
