The Chakras Explained......

The human chakra system can be said to act as a sort of multi-channel receiver of vibrations from different parts of the energy spectrum all around us. The purpose or function of the human chakra system is to take in higher-dimensional energy from the universal energy field all around us and translate or step down its frequency of vibration to that which can be used within the physical body.

Each major chakra vibrates or spins at a different rate, and each chakra will absorb energy from our environment that is harmonically related to its own frequency. This energy is then absorbed by the different chakras and then directed by the internal energy meridians to those organs with which that chakra is associated.

There are 7 main chakras, each positioned along the full length of the spine, each having a direct relationship with primary organs within the body.

Many minor chakras are also located throughout the body, and are usually associated with joints such as the knee, shoulder, elbow etc, also found in the palms of both hands and the soles of both the feet.

Chakras are an important aspect of our inner body’s energy system and intimately connected with our physical health. When energised, balanced and open, our chakras contribute to immune system health and the body’s ability to heal itself, but if a particular chakra is not, then the health of the associated body parts will begin to reflect this.

When a chakra accumulates negative energy, in whatever format or form, the other chakras overcompensate for the resulting blockage and the entire chakra system then becomes unbalanced, leading to an unfavourable influence on the physical, emotional or mental self aspects. In other words you may well begin to experience symptoms of ill-health.
