More On Chakras

revitalize reikiChakras

Chakras are subtle energy centres that relate to the hormonal (endocrine) system in the body and the major nerve plexuses.
There are seven major chakras in the body.
Each chakra relates to different levels of consciousness, developmental stages of life, emotions, thoughts, colours, sounds, body functions and much more. The chakras are said to develop over the course of our lifetime.
In order to bring more harmony to our entire system, subtle energy healing tries to assist the individual in bringing the chakras into balance when they are blocked or overactive.


Where Are The Chakras Located

The human’s subtle energy body is made up of thousands of pathways known as nadis which conduct prana or energy throughout the body. Amongst the most important are Sushumna, Ida and Pingala which all originate at the base of the spine. The main one, Sushumna, is centrally located and passes up through the spinal column, with Ida starting to the left and Pingala to the right. Ida and Pingala spiral around the Sushumna up the spine, intersecting four times before converging at the nose level. Each junction of these three nadis marks a chakra.
The Chakras are situated in a vertical line ascending from the base of the spine to the head.
