Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel, or turning, and refers to your energy centers, which serve as gateways that regulate the flow of energy to and from various levels and aspects of your being.
When your chakras are clear, balanced and optimally functioning, you experience health, harmony, balance and well-being on a deeper level, in both your inner and outer worlds.
Although the chakras are not physical, they are denser than the aura itself, but not as dense as the physical body. The major chakras, located enterically in the energy field correspond and relate to physical sites in the body. Each of the seven major chakras are associated with a specific endocrine gland, or a group of nerves called a plexus. Whilst chakras are etheric vehicles, they interact with the physical body via the endocrine and nervous system, and the finer energy currents of the meridians.
Working directly with your energy via the chakra centers offers an opportunity to heal and transform on many levels, clearing away that which doesn’t serve you, and releasing and transmuting energetic debris that may otherwise thwart energy flow and health.
