Chakra Balancing & Aura Cleansing
WHAT ARE CHAKRAS ?
If you have taken a Yoga session or know about meditation, you have surely heard about Chakras and the role they play in the flow of energy in our body. Chakras are located in the astral body, along the spine, starting at its base and running upwards to the crown of the head. The astral body is the energy body residing inside our physical body. Each physical body part has a corresponding astral body part. The astral body cannot be seen or touched. This is also a reason why we cannot see the chakras. There are multiple chakras of spinning energy in our body each of which corresponds to major organs and nerve bundles. Chakras are also called energy centers in our psychic body, and they supply required energy to various parts of our body. These energy bundles need to stay open and balanced - a blockage may lead to experiencing emotional or physical impacts related to a particular chakra.
The chakras radiate a specific color and energy. Each one coincides with a gland in the physical body. Since each chakra relates to specific spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physical aspects of our being, it is believed that their blockage or malfunction can lead to physical, psychological, and emotional disorders. Balanced Chakras lead to good health and well-being.
Through yogic practices, like yoga, meditation and asanas, one can stimulate and balance these chakras or energy centers in the body. Read below and learn more about the 7 chakras, their symbols, attributes, effects, and balancing techniques.
