What are Chakras, and why do they need to be balanced?
The word Chakra in Sanskrit translates to wheel or disc. Chakras are known to be our body’s main energy centers. They act like a wheel turning as life force energy flows through them. These energy centers govern thinking, feelings, sensations, emotions, perceptions, and intuition, and when they become out of balance can create many physical, psychological, and spiritual issues in our life. Chakras are housed in our etheric body, but even though they are not part of the physical human anatomy, they significantly influence the biological processes taking place within it. There are 7 commonly known chakras that most people have heard of, but there are actually at least 114 in and outside of our body.
The seven commonly known chakras are Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown. They are aligned, starting at the base of the spine and ending at the top of the head. When the energy flow is deficient, the chakra is said to be underactive, and when the energy flow is in excess, the chakra is said to be overactive. In extreme cases, a chakra can be completely blocked and can results in energy accumulation at a particular point in the body, which could lead to severe psychosomatic diseases.
For example, a person with an overactive Root chakra may feel, anxious, jittery, panic, be fearful, experience greed, paranoia, excessive attachments, and obsessive behavior, while a person with an underactive root Chakra may feel sluggishness, colon & bladder issues, constipation, lower back pain, cramping, and prostate issue. On the other hand, when your Root Chakra is in Balance, and the life force energy is flowing through it properly, you feel grounded, secure, and at peace with your body and surroundings.
By bringing all your chakras into balance, you can release blocked energy that leaves you feeling stagnant and stuck in old toxic behavioral patterns. This release allows you to access higher energetic frequencies and states of consciousness. This results in a reduction of illness that manifests in the physical body, mind, and spirit, bringing them back into their natural state of homeostasis.
Spiritual Detox Energy Cleansing
Everything is energy! Albert Einstein theorized that the entire universe is made of energy, and energy vibrates at different frequencies. The lower vibrational frequencies reveal solid objects, such as humans, rocks, animals, and so forth. The speed at which the higher frequencies vibrate is so fast they are, for the most part, invisible to the naked eye.
All of us are made up of multiple forms of Energy. Low vibrational energy makes up our physical bodies, and high vibrational energy surrounds our body and is commonly referred to as your aura. Scientifically this energy field is known as an electromagnetic field. This high vibrational energy spans 4-5 feet outside your body.
Your aura can be affected by the energy that you allow it to absorb. Negative energy, such as toxic relationships, behaviors, and environments, can slow down its vibrational frequency, even if you leave the toxic environment. While positive energy, such as a good attitude, self-love, and healthy environments, will speed the vibrational frequency of your aura.
With the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, stress from our jobs, and the responsibilities of our family, it is not too hard to find yourself collecting stagnant toxic energy that lingers in our aura, causing us to feel, lethargic, negative, and unproductive.
Working with an energy practitioner to cleanse and detox your aura can help you clear and release some of this toxic energy that has been building up and weighing you down. Raising your personal vibrational frequency results in leaving you a lighter, more energetic, positive, and healthy feeling.
