I would like to explain what the chakra are and how they work.
the chakra are pools of spiraling energy that flow through your body. life is messy and those energies tend to get blocked by emotion, so the chakra energies become blocked and can not flow.
If we open the chakras, the energy flows then energy becomes balanced.
If you want a balanced life you must first find balance within yourself, this then will bring balance into your life.
there are 7 chakras that go up through the body.
each pool of energy has a purpose and can be blocked by a specific kind of emotional muck.
opening the chakra is an intense experience once you start you can not stop until all the chakra are open and flowing freely.
now like you to focus on your chakra we will go through them one by one focusing on opening each chakra individually.
I want to open up with some information that you will find helpful, I am going to explain the chakra before we do the meditations, so you know what to focus on.
The chakra are a sacred element in Hindu tradition. For thousands of years people have been using chakra as a way to relate to themselves and the universe.
On the body there are seven points to the chakra. each point represents the place where the chakra is and how it relates to us not just on a physical level but a spiritual one as well.
Chakra is an energy channel in which the energy of the chakra is connected to one another and the universe. the chakra also carry life force. With awaken chakra people become aware of their extrasensory function.
The chakra are broken up in two categories; the upper chakra move in a clockwise motion
and the lower chakra move in a counterclockwise motion.
