A chakra is like a whirling vortex of energy. Think of it as an invisible, rechargeable battery. It is charged and recharged through contact with the stream of cosmic energy in the air.

The human energy field or Aura is an energetic, multidimensional field that surrounds, penetrates, and makes up the human body. It has rivers of energy called meridians that nourish every organ and cell in our body. These rivers are supplied by vortexes of energy called Chakras. These Chakras, in turn, collect energy from the Universal Life Force and Energy Field that is all around us. When blocks accumulate in the Chakras, a disruption in the flow of energy results and disrupts the harmony in the energy field which may eventually causes dis-ease as well as emotional and mental disorders in the physical body. Through healing and regular Chakra clearing, the energy field is cleared of blocks, while the Chakras are blanched and vibrating perfectly, therefore creating a new level of awareness.

Ancient texts of Indian yogic literature describe these special energy centers inside our bodies. Their name, “chakra,” comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheels.” A chakra resembles a whirling vortex of energy. You can think of chakras as invisible, rechargeable batteries. They are charged and recharged through contact with the stream of cosmic energy in the atmosphere, in much the same way that buildings are connected to a power source in a city. A chakra acts like a step-down transformer. It takes in higher energies and changes them into forms that are usable by the human body. These energies cause hormonal, chemical, and cellular changes in the recipient.

Chakras connect the spiritual body to the physical one. They regulate the flow of energy in the electrical network that runs through the physical body. The body’s electrical system resembles the wiring in a house. It allows electrical current to be sent to every part, and is ready for use when needed.

Picture a vertical power current that runs up and down the spine, from top to bottom. Think of this as your main source of energy. The seven major chakras are in the center of the body and are aligned with this vertical “power line.”

Each person has seven major chakras. There are similar energy centers called minor chakras, but we’re going to concentrate on the major ones and their amazing impact on our human energy field. Each chakra relates to specific organs of the body and is subtly linked to the other chakras. The vitality of each chakra enables the associated organs to function and relate to the rest of the body in a healthy manner.

A different endocrine gland is associated with each chakra. This hormonal tie-in between chakras and glands hints at the complexities of how a subtle energetic imbalance can cause abnormal changes in the cells of the whole body.

Sometimes chakras become blocked because of stress or emotional or physical problems. If the body’s energy can’t move freely, problems occur. When a blockage takes place, it is possible to achieve a balance by following the simple instructions given here for Chakra Clearing.

Each chakra is traditionally associated with a particular color as well as certain gems or stones. If you enjoy working with stones and crystals, you may want to try using them to assist in clearing the chakras. If you are unsure whether a chakra is open and functioning well, leave an appropriate stone or crystal on the energy center while you meditate. Carnelian is an excellent stone for this purpose; it directs energy to any area that needs it.

If you sense that an area of your body is not functioning as well as you would like, it may be that the chakra associated with it needs to be cleared. Think of it as cleaning your personal sparkplugs. One way to determine whether a chakra needs clearing, is to use a pendulum. By dowsing over the chakra area itself or by holding one hand over the chakra and the pendulum in the other hand.

Below is a detailed chart referencing the seven major chakras in turn, starting at the bottom and working up. Refer to the illustration to locate each one.

When all the chakras are “whirling,” open, vibrating properly, bright and clean, then our chakra system is balanced. When a chakra becomes blocked, congested, damaged, or muddied with residual energy, then our physical and emotional health can be affected. Often this occurs habitually as the result of negative or incomplete belief systems. The effects of our habits, feelings, beliefs, thoughts, fears and desires can be found in our chakras!

For example, if you eat poorly (a lot of processed food, for instance) and don’t exercise, chances are your root (red) chakra is going to become sluggish, darkened and dull. If you “close off” your emotions because they’re painful or overwhelming, your heart chakra is likely to become tight and closed and block emotional energy.

The goal is a strong, clear, balanced energy system. The more open, clear and balanced the chakras, the more energy can flow through your system. This energy is essential for vitality, health, and continued growth on all levels.

It is important to understand that your thoughts create your reality. If you are experiencing negative thoughts, your chakras may be come blocked from this negative energy. However, it is very important to remain un-judgmental about your situation. You are a Wholly Child of God, and nothing you could ever do can change that – NOTHING. The thoughts that may have created these blocks simply require correction, not judgment. In other words – THINK AGAIN! You have the power, in every moment, to cancel out a negative thought with a positive one by simply thinking again.
