Our Divine Energy Centers
Our Chakras are our main energy centers. Our thoughts, feelings and emotions filter into our Chakras and flow out into our Aura and emanate out to the World and the Universe. Likewise, the outter world filters into our energy system and it is up to us if we receive only the good energies or the not-so-great energies out there. If our Aura and Chakra systems are healthy and vibrant we will more easily fend off the icky energy out there. When they are run down, holes and patches will start to form in our aura that will allow the ick to slinker its way in.
It’s important to keep our systems healthy and vibrant. The best way is to be sure we are eating healthy, exercising regularly, bringing balance into our lives and meditating for peace and clarity. A great daily meditation to do is a Chakra clearing and balancing meditation. There are many CDs out there with this goal in mind. My CD (that you can find in my online store) offers a quick way of doing this as well. There is also a beautiful free 15 minute Chakra meditation on youtube that I love to do almost daily. Click here to enjoy that blessing. Attached please find an updated beautiful printer friendly version of the 7 Main Chakra centers in our energy body.
Chakras are transformers of subtle energy. They take the universal life energy that is always around us and transform it into various frequencies our subtle energy system needs to keep us healthy. There are seven main Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown. The Root Chakra (lowest) brings in the lower frequencies that are needed for physical survival and the highest or crown Chakra brings in the spiritual levels of energy. Each Chakra corresponds with a layer of the aura. Negative feelings or thoughts can become lodged in the Charkas reducing the amount of subtle energy they are able to provide and adversely affecting ones health. Treating the Chakras proves to, also, be a very important part of giving a Reiki treatment. See below for Chakra descriptions (and if you’d like to know more about your Chakras and our energy body I go into a depth about this, ascension and our Kundalini in my book Divine Embrace. 🙂
