Chakra health

Monday, February 25th, 2008

Q. Masters, I have been reading about the Chakras and their importance to health, and I’m encountering some contradictory information. Could you just give me a little primer on what I need to know about the chakras?

A. Chakras are energy centers. Some of them are within the physical body and some of them are within your auric, etheric, or non-physical body. The ones affecting human health are the physical chakras.

There are seven physical chakras, extending from the root chakra at the base of the spine up to the crown chakra exiting out the top of the head. The chakras are connected by what is called the pranic tube. This tube carries force energy up and down the length of the body. A blockage in any of the chakras affects the rest of the body because they are interconnected. It is important for health reasons to ensure that the chakras are all rotating with a flow of energy and that none is under- or over-active.

Energy-sensitive persons will be able to tell you if your chakras are in proper tune. They may do this with their hands or a pendulum. They will also be able to help you balance your chakras using their hands, intention, a pendulum, or vibrational sound.

This is a very brief and simplistic look at chakras, but know that if they become blocked they can stop the flow of energy and cause dis-ease within the body. The very least that you should do is, during meditation, visualize the energy flowing freely up and down your pranic tube, rotating the chakras like little engines supplying energy to your entire body. This will help promote health and balance within your body.
