Reiki and chakras tips – Reiki and chakras are subtle energy centers or energy vortexes in the body located from the base of the tail bone up to the top of the head. Hindu mystics number the chakras in the body in the hundreds of thousands, similar to the meridian system used in acupuncture, however a more simplified study of the reiki and chakras focuses on seven main chakra centers. These seven chakra centers are the major transmitters for receiving and sending energy.
The Root Chakra or red chakra is located at the tip of the tailbone. Its energy color is red and is associated with passion, vitality, desire, basal energy and groundedness. When one takes on a feeling of being ungrounded, the Root Chakra may be out of balance.
The Sacral Chakra is located at the area of the pubic bone. Its energy color is orange and is associated with joy and sociability. The Sacral Chakra controls one’s appetite for food, sex and humanly pleasure and so it is advised to do sacral chakra meditation frequently.
The Solar Plexis Chakra or the yellow chakra is located just above the naval. Its energy color is yellow and is associated with intelligence, clarity, happiness and creativity. The Solar Plexis regulates visceral feelings, the personality and the ego.
The Heart Chakra is located at the middle of the chest near one’s heart. Its energy color is green and is associated with healing, balance, and nurturing. The Heart Chakra is crucial for maintaining balance and it thrives on joy and love. The Heart Chakra constricts with grief and becomes imbalanced with co-dependence or with improper giving or receiving ratios in personal relationships.
The Throat Chakra is located where the throat meets the neck. Its energy color is sky blue and is associated with friendship, loyalty, and open and honest communication. The Throat Chakra is the gateway to higher spiritual realms, where higher spiritual energy is channeled into the body from The All.
The Third Eye Chakra is located between the brows. Its energy color is indigo blue and is associated with deep meditation, high-level intuition and spiritual self-awareness. The Third Eye is the center of the manifestation power of the mind which allows creation of reality on the physical, mental and emotional levels.
The Crown Chakra is located at the crown of the skull. Its energy color is violet or intense white and is associated with spiritual attainment and communication with Spirit and Higher Self. The Crown Chakra connects lower self to Higher Self; soul to The All. It allows for spiritual insights and an understanding of higher purpose.
Each chakra functions on a physical, spiritual and mental level with balance being the key to optimal health and well-being, as with everything in the Universe. When chakras are clear and properly functioning, the body and its organs, the mind and the spirit are all functioning at the highest level. If the chakras are not spinning properly or, sometimes not spinning at all, individuals experience sickness, sadness, depression, stress, or an overall unbalanced mental and physical feeling. Unexpressed or suppressed emotions cause chakras to become blocked and prevented from spinning properly. If one has a blocked chakra, that one blocked chakra can affect other chakras. Clearing chakras helps transform harmful energies, anger, stress, sadness into positive energy allowing you to feel revitalized and connected to Higher Self and the Universe.
Reiki and chakras expert says regular meditation can clear and balance the chakras and allow energy to freely flow throughout the chakras of the body as well as from the chakra directly to Spirit. Once chakras are cleared and activated, physical, mental and spiritual ailments can be healed. With regular meditation, the energy of one’s chakra system stays aligned and allows for optimal balance of mind, body and soul.
Checking out Chakras
According to reiki and chakras expert, unbalanced chakras can lead to an unbalanced life – poor health, poor emotional wellbeing and can affect your happiness.
Many healing modalities have a single belief in common – that of a system of energy points throughout a human (and animal) body which can have a profound impact on our states of emotional and mental health.
Chakras are perceived as whirling energy fields that are aligned to various organs and parts of the body. The most common and major chakras are those which form a line from just above our head (Crown Chakra), down our spines to the base or Root Chakra which lines up with our coccyx bone.
There are many more chakras throughout our bodies, in our hands, feet and other areas, but these are considered to be minor and do not usually attract the attention of healers.
The word chakra is an old Sanskrit one which means “wheel” or “disc” and perfectly describes the whirling motion of this subtle energy. Chakras are often shown as lotus flowers on diagrams and treatment by aligning and balancing them was developed as a traditional Hindu system of healing.
Modern science is able to record the existence of energy levels and energy fields, including auras around living things – just because we cannot see something does not mean it cannot exist.
From a healer’s experience, checking a client’s chakras and rebalancing them when necessary can have interesting and sometimes surprising results.
By examining the auric field (the energy flow around a person) and using their hands to feel for obstructions and imbalances healers are often able to detect “blockages” in the flow which indicate there may be some physical issues which need attention.
Although healers may be proficient in their modalities it is, however, important for them to refer clients to mainstream medical practitioners if they suspect a physical ailment.
They are usually happy to continue treating a client they should also encourage them to seek other advice – there is never anything wrong with having a second opinion.
Reiki and chakras balancing and other energy healing therapies are complementary to mainstream support, not a replacement for it.
