Mostly of all us desire a balanced lifestyle: mentally, physically and spiritually. When one of these aspects are out of whack in your life, chances are its due to an imbalance. And believe it or not, oftentimes the remedy lies in realignment of the energy within yourself.
This month I've decided to do a series on Chakras and getting a better understanding of what they are and the importance they have to each and every one of us.
So.What is a chakra? The Sanskrit meaning breaks to being a wheel or disk. Speaking in yoga terms the wheel is one comprised of energy set throughout the physical body. There are seven main chakras which align the spine, starting from the base through the crown of the head. Each chakra contains a bundle of nerves and surrounds a major organ that not only affects our physical but our psychological, mental, and spiritual state of being. Its essential that there is a fluidity, a flow of these energies otherwise there of course will be a blockage. And just like a sink can get clogged with gunk and dirt, the water becomes stagnant, bacteria infested and moldy, the same effect can go within your body. This is why it is important that you have a level of balance of energy within yourself, as well as the cognizance and awareness to know when something is off.
In this series we'll discuss the seven chakras which are separated into three main groups, the Chakras of Matter, the Fourth Chakra, and the Chakras of Spirit. We'll gain an understanding of each one in depth, speaking not only about the meaning, but ways of healing and improving the overall working of your chakras. I hope to achieve not just knowledge of the Prana, or the vital life source that encompasses the chakras but to also incorporate the practice of alignment in our daily lives so that we may find balance. Stay tuned.
