What Are Chakras?
We are wrongly taught to believe that our body is just a machine whose wheels rotate from time to time, and by administering some drugs, we manage to repair everything. Things are not quite the same, because our well-being is not only related to the physical functioning state. We must know that we are mind, body and spirit and none of these areas function independently of each other and likewise, we are in relation to Everything and All, at any moment.
The spiritual traditions of the world, from ancient times until today, have shown that man communicates with the environment through the chakras. They ensure a permanent exchange of subtle energies that have the role to mediate communication in any situation. From each chakra radiates a certain number of energy channels (“nadi”) known in the yogic tradition under the name of petals or energetic spite. Clairvoyants often claim to see the chakras as distinctly colored subtle light foci that have a different number of petals, starting from a central point.
Chakra – derived from Sanskrit cakra? – is a Sanskrit word that translates through the wheel or circle. Chakras are a philosophical concept that refers to swirls in the form of a circle that, according to traditional Indian medicine, exist in the human body. Although there are many contemporary proponents of the concept, due to the subtle nature of the subject, modern science has not proven the existence or absence of chakras, writes Wikipedia.
The 7 Chakras
All our life experiences have a great influence on the whole. Some experiences are negative and others are positive. The negative ones manifest themselves in time, in the form of diseases. For example, maybe, over the years, we have felt, for a specific reason, unable to express our needs and feelings. This can manifest as a problem at the level of the throat chakra. The blue chakra of the neck manifests, from a spiritual point of view, at the level of our need for expression. Thus, if we block our need for self-manifestation, the energy in this area is blocked.
The chakras or the main energy centers, are arranged along the spine (from the head ridge to the base of the spine).
There are 7 large energy centers in the body. These energy centers, which we know as chakras, resemble energy spirals, always having a connection with each other. Using the 7 colors of the spectrum, color therapy helps us stimulate these energy centers and restore balance in the body, stimulating the body’s ability to heal itself, restoring spiritual balance.
In the simplest possible way, we can use the energy of colors to rebalance the energy flow of the chakras
