The human nervous system is a network connecting the sensory organs to the brain. Chakras are energy centers which act as a “pump” to direct spiritual energy through this system. For example, Earth energy is drawn up through your Root Chakra and passed to the Sacral Chakra which is then passed to the Solar Plexus, then the heart, then throat, brow, and finally the crown. Once energy reaches beyond the crown, experiences and sensations move to realms beyond explanation.
Chakras manage the flow of energy for various aspects of your emotional life, your physical health, your relationship dynamics, your career success, your spiritual connection, your creative flow and your overall sense of well being. In several ways, the Chakras are the most important thing to develop.
When your Chakras are healthy and thriving, your life flows with a relaxed invigoration, you feel aligned with your unique path and purpose and you have the energy to follow through on your clear dreams with joy while feeling an abundance of love and support along the way.
When your Chakras are closed, blocked or energetically dented in some way, you’ll feel the effects dramatically in your life. For example, if your Throat Chakra is closed or wounded you may feel constriction in your throat so that you don’t speak when you want to. There can be a deep fear of expressing yourself and being judged for your ideas. On the flip side, you may speak in ways you don’t like, such as with harshness and judgement of others. You may keep to yourself rather than allowing your energy to circulate out into the world. Eating can become an out of control habit to try to take energy in, to make up for the inability to let energy out or from the distress of holding your Truth in without speaking it aloud.
The Chakra system is considered by many to be the most important system to work with because it is the base energy from which we create our lives. A fundamental step on your spiritual path is to learn how to support the Chakras to align with your highest vision; this guides you in how to live every aspect of your life including relationships, health and career. This reduces anxiety and stress and increases inspiration and motivation to create a life based on love and joy.
