~~**~~ What Are Chakras? ~~**~~
“Chakra” is a term that comes from the ancient Sanskrit language, literally translating to English as “wheel.” And when you look at artistic renderings of the chakras, you can probably understand why. Running vertically through the centre of the human body from the base of the spine to the top of the head, the chakras are energy centres that are whirling, spinning, and driving the physical and spiritual experience forward.
There are 7 major Chakras running from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, each chakra is responsible for distributing energy to different organs, muscles, and nerves. Our bodies are made up of an electromagnetic energy sometimes referred to as the AURA. The flow of this energy affects our health and well-being. The chakras are responsible for directing and distributing this energy through our body. Through our Chakras, we receive and transmit physical, emotional, and spiritual energy.
Each chakra is associated with an area of the body and a colour of the spectrum. Each Chakra is said to spin at a different frequency. When each Chakra spins at its perfect frequency the body radiates perfect health; emotions are centred and balanced and we enjoy a sense of peace. Chakras can be manipulated to keep the body healthy and emotions centred by using meditation, colours, and crystals. Stones are used at chakra centres for clearing, revitalizing, and healing. Generally, the selection of stones for healing corresponds with the associated colour of the chakra. Through our chakras, we receive and transmit physical, emotional, and spiritual energy. We can bring fresh energy into our body through the chakras that can nourish our organs and glands.
