A BEGGINERS GUIDE TO CHAKRAS

In Reiki, I work with energy system and chakras are the seven centres of that system. We are made up of thousands of energy channels and the main places that these channels connect are known as our chakras - wheel -  vortex centres where the energy is highly concentrated . Running up the spine, from the pelvic area up to the crown of the head. our chakras relate to parts of the body and our emotions. Chakras vitalize the body by transmitting and absorbing energy. Our Endocrine system is affected when the flow of subtle energy becomes blocked in one or more of the chakras, and because of this we are liable to develop mental and physical illness. When this seven Chakras are balanced and cleansed and they are working on the optimal level you don't get diseases or pain, and you feel overall sense of harmony in your mind and body.
