The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit chakram, which means wheel. Chakras can actually be defined as spinning wheels or vortices of light. They are focal points of energy and are formed where energy lines crisscross in the body. Although there are numerous chakras in the body, the seven major chakras are located along the central column of the body, beginning at the base of the spine, climbing to the crown of your head.
Chakras can be seen with the naked eyes only by psychics or through an aura scan. Although the West is fast exploring this fascinating science, the knowledge and treatment of chakras has been followed in India for millennia, forming the basis of many systems of meditation, healing, yoga and self-awareness.
Each major chakra corresponds to an endocrine gland in the physical body. For example, the heart chakra is connected to the thymus gland, the throat chakra to the thyroid and so on. Made of pure energy, each chakra vibrates at a particular frequency. When our chakras get blocked or damaged, the chakra automatically grows sluggish or hyperactive, causing corresponding discomfort or dis-ease in the area of our life that corresponds to the chakra.
In a balanced chakra system, each chakra works at its optimum level, making us feel healthy and vital. A simple technique to temporarily clear the chakras is to have a dip in the sea or a salt water bath. Spending time outdoors is also recommended as it gives the chakra system and you considerable relief.
For lasting solutions though, you have to work with the chakra at a core level to cleanse and heal the source of the imbalance. While a lot of people enjoy working with crystals, gem stones and chanting mantras, unless the cause is dealt with, there is a high chance that the situation will reoccur.
Our chakra meditation program is designed to help you at every level. It takes you on a journey deep within your chakras to cleanse, heal and balance them, showing you how to use this incredible energy system as a vehicle for spiritual growth and self-realisation. You learn to resolve issues on the physical, mental and emotional level and you get to choose the pace at which you want to work with your energy.
