CHAKRAS

 

The word 'chakra' in Sanskrit is for wheel. Chakra symbols represent the circular centers of energy, the spinning vortexes of energy or energetic centers. They are the openings for subtle life energy vital energy center in the spine where life energy flows into and out of our aura.

These centers of energy correspond to the nerve plexuses and organs in the physical nervous system. By focusing on these energy centers, and understanding the function of each, we are able to balance our energies, enhance areas in our lives, and even facilitate healing.

They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. They are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions. The chakras represent major areas of life and also are responsible for certain physiological reactions in the body.

When the energy in any of the Chakras are blocked, it can cause a dis-ease. It is important to understand what each Chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely.

The chakras can be seen as an interface between matter and consciousness.
There are many systems and methods for chakra healing, balancing and
cleansing including meditations, energy healing and breathing techniques.

 

Root Chakra

Open up your root chakra to rid yourself of fear and anxiety. Open up your root chakra to bring stable energy from the earth into you. It will help you to feel more mentally and physically stable, it is also your sexual root and will give you an increased and more complete sex drive.

Because it is your root, this chakra will help to ground you and balance you and to stabilize and give you a solid foundation for manifesting and creating a happy, balanced and successful life.

Sacral Chakra

Open up your sacral chakra and primarily help you to feel more joy in your life. Opening your sacral chakra will help you to think more clearly and to be more creative, to be able to express your feelings without feeling over emotional. At the deepest level it will bring peace and joy into your life from a deeper, energetic level, because that's what joy is - vibrationally alive peace - the joy of knowing yourself as the very essence of life.

Solar Plexus

Open your solar plexus chakra which impacts upon your energy levels internally and externally. You will stop procrastinating, thinking negatively and worrying and tap into your inner personal power.

Your energy levels will be increased and you will be driven, motivated and taking action towards your goals and projects. The solar plexus chakra is like a valve for your energy and focus, and when it is open then energy is delivered to you in much greater quantities and much more vibrantly.

Heart Chakra

Open your heart chakra to spread love and re-ignite your passion for life. Do you need to love yourself more - without judgement and negativity? Do you need to show others you love and care for them? Then this chakra session is essential for you.

The heart chakra is the key to your spiritual side - love is the foundation of our spiritual selves - our true selves. This powerful guided meditation will guide you to open your heart chakra, send out love, receive love.. and become part of the one loving universe.

Throat Chakra

Open your throat chakra to enhance your thinking and communication. Your throat chakra is your communication hub, both within yourself and externally, communicating with other people.

When your throat chakra is active and balanced you can look within yourself much more clearly, you can receive information from your core and your higher self. You can also communicate your ideas and gain independence and control over your life.

Third Eye / Brow Chakra

Activate and balance your third eye chakra to develop your intuition and sixth sense.

Open your brow chakra, a.k.a your third eye is your portal to extra sensory information and perception. If you want to develop your intuition, become more self aware, to pickup on information outside your normal sensory range and to really recieve information and ideas from the universe and from the higher self. Crown Chakra

Open your crown chakra. This is your final progression, as you open up your other chakras the energy starts to flow up your body, and finally when you open your crown chakra you access the universal consciousness within you.

This is not a destination but a long spiritual journey - opening your crown chakra is the first step towards truly searching within yourself for the truth of who you are and truly experiencing enlightenment.
