Hello beautiful soul. I have recently been guided to talk with you about energy hygiene and one thing that can impact you as well as protect you, your beautiful and amazing Chakras. These beautiful spinning wheels of light govern all processes in your energetic and physical body and are so easy to work with once you have just a bit of information. They are beautiful and welcoming and receptive and I'm so excited to be on this Chakra journey with you!
I will go into individual chakras in following posts, all that they mean as well as how they affect you, body mind and spirit and how you can work with your own system. But first, well, what is a Chakra?
The word Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning disc or wheel. It is often described as a spinning wheel of light or a spinning wheel of energy. Each Chakra carries its own individual frequency, has it's own placement, purpose, design and each spins at its own unique speed. They are individually designated by a color (not sure if this is an actual light ray or if it's something we created for ourselves; there are differing views on this) and each one governs functions of self that make us all human, as well as specific functions related to our organs, behaviors and energetic states of being.
Chakras are energy centers in your energetic body which also pass through your physical body, front and back. We have 7 major chakras located along the spine, from the base (coccyx) through the crown of the head, as well as two more which have come to the forefront lately with our upgraded energies, the Earth Star Chakra and the Soul Star Chakra. Yes these two have always been there, just not as well noticed (or utilized) as the 7 major ones. We have literally hundreds, possibly thousands, of chakras (energy centers) in our bodies. We will be talking about the 9 mentioned here as these are the most important at the moment and relate to your personal energy hygiene as well as the functioning of your physical body, the way you live and conduct your life and the way you feel on any given day. Yes, the way you feel and interact with your world. I know, right??
They are that important. They are a part of your vital life force. These swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of the seven main chakras contain bundles of nerves and are related to major organs in your physical body as well as your psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. Yep this is big, but you don't need to remember all of this, just that they are there, available, can tell you of your present state of being and they need to be cared for.
Keeping your Chakras open can be easy if you are aware of the signs. If we remember that mind, body and soul are intimately connected (and all one), then awareness of an imbalance in one or more areas is easier to notice and remedy. And there is always a check in on how you're feeling today, that is a sure indication.
The first three chakras (starting from the base of the spine going up) are related to our physical world. Physical in nature, they are chakras of matter (your physical state of being). The heart (the fourth chakra) is the bridge between matter and spirit and the top three are chakras of a spiritual nature. I will cover each of these individually.
Let's keep in mind that our bodies are in a constant state of balance, unbalance and re-balancing. It's the nature of the structure and this is normal. However when dis-ease, an overt amount of stress or trauma occurs (or even a consistent nagging thought), you will most likely have a center of energy out of balance, stuck, clogged or shut down. It could be the cause or the effect of an event. Knowing the signs before you get to this point is the pearl.
With the information I will be sending you I hope it will help you understand your energetic body a little better and help you understand the how and why of energy hygiene and your ability to tune in and sense when you need to re-balance yourself or when you need to reach out and ask for help.
Because each Chakra is specific to a human behavior, feeling, energetic output or organ function it can be fairly easy to notice when you need to do a bit of energetic house cleaning or if it calls for a deeper look into where you are and what is surfacing.
Stay tuned, the others will be up one at a time and I've also put a voice clip on my website to guide you through your Chakras and connect with them.
Love to you all.
