Chakras are the sacred energy centers of the body that work together synergistically to govern the health and wellness of the body. They also assist us in our journey to great awareness and consciousness.
There are 7 main chakra centers in the body and it is believed that each center is connected on all 3 levels of being - physical, emotional and spiritual.
Every organ and gland in the body is connected to a chakra and each chakra resonates to a color frequency. Eg. The Heart Chakra resonates with the color green and governs the functioning of the heart organ, lungs, bronchi system, lymph glands, the secondary circulatory system and immune system, as well as the arms and hands.
When one chakra is blocked or congested it may eventually affect the other chakras. If this happens symptoms are manifested on a mental, emotional or physical level.
The benefit of learning about your chakra system is so that you understand your Self as a whole being - physically, mentally and spiritually (body, mind & soul). When all 3 parts of you are working synergistically with each other, you will feel optimal health.
Nowadays people forget about the 'whole' and focus more on the physical. We've forgotten we're a 3 part being and our chakras are interdependent on each other for total harmony and balance.
