Have you heard the term Chakras? Chakras are points in the centre line of our body that can impact us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our life force, energy, prana flows through us and through these points. If one of our Chakras is blocked or out of balance that can affect us on a number of levels. An imbalance of blockage within one of our Chakras can impair our physical self, our spiritual self or our emotional self. It is important to ensure we are as balanced and that our energy flows through them. If we get regular Chakra sessions or learn how to work on ourselves then we will find more balance in peace in every single aspect of our life.
Each Chakra relates to us on physical, spiritual or emotional level. Working with Chakras is an holistic practice, i.e. whole body. Western views on the body are that we deal with the specific affected area. However, many Eastern cultures know that we must view and treat the body as whole. If we do not deal with the underlying issue we will continue to suffer.
