Introduction to Chakras

This week we’ll take a break from the book peddling and teasers for my debut fantasy/paranormal romance, Rekindled Prophecy, and the remaining books in the series.

Instead, I’ve recently (over the past year so I am by no means an expert) learned about chakras and how keeping them cleansed and balanced is important to my physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. It’s just as important as clearing your physical space (see the blog post in archives about smudging), probably even more so because you take yourself with you wherever you go, but your physical space may change.

First, what the holy heck are chakras anyway?

In Indian teachings chakras are each of the centers of spiritual power in the human body. Most only consider the seven main chakras (crown of the head, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral, and root). But there are many more minor chakras. To keep things simple here, we’ll stick to the main seven.

Per the dictionary, the word “chakra” comes from Sanskrit word “cakra” meaning wheel or circle and refer to the energy centers of your body. According to http://www.healthline.com, chakras are “…spinning disks of energy that should stay open and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.” Chakras, sometimes pictured as flower-shaped energy vortexes, are the key to aligning our glands and organs with our life energy (common names: chi, praana, qi).

If a chakras (or multiple chakras) are out of balance or blocked, it can affect our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health in adverse ways. For optimal health, we need all of these seven chakras cleaned, balanced, and working together.

Let’s introduce each of the seven main chakras:

That’s a lot of info and I’ve barely scratched the surface. I’ll delve into more comprehensive evaluations of each chakra in future articles, along with methods to cleanse and balance these chakras individually and together since all together makes up our entire energetic being.

There’s an article I posted a while back (I’ll try to locate it) that talked about the root chakra. If I find it, I’ll repost it next month. If not, I’ll compose another article as I feel we should start with our most basic need – survival – and work our way up from there.

Thanks for joining me today.

Namaste.
