Chakras are energy centres located at different points on the etheric body. They are wheel like vortices about 6 inches in diameter, funnelling into the spine. Apart from the root and crown chakras, each chakra is a pair front and back. The front part regulates feelings, while the back parts are the will centres. They regulate the amount of energy required by us. There are about 114 major and minor chakras out of which 108 are located in the body. They are closely linked to the endocrine system of the body. The endocrine system controls the hormonic balance in the body and has a powerful effect on a person’s moods and emotions. Any imbalance in the endocrine system, leads to mental and physical illness.
When a person has a negative emotion or has gone through pain or trauma, he/she blocks off the relevant chakra in order to avoid the pain, as a natural defence mechanism. The chakra then begins gets clogged with stagnated energy and can get distorted or torn. When a person is in perfect mental and physical health, it means the chakras are functioning normally.
Reiki treatments concentrate on the 7 main chakras which are located along the spine. The chakras absorb the Universal Life Force Energy, also known as Prana or Chi, break it up into component parts and send it along energy rivers called Nadis/channels to the nervous system, the endocrine glands and then to the blood to nourish the body. All Chakras are connected to different parts of the body.
When there is a balance on the energy centres called Chakras, illness manifests in the physical body so as to bring attention to the distortion in that particular energy centre. Be it emotional , mental or physical health a lot of issues can be resolved by bringing balance into the energy body. Of course medical help and advice needs to be taken as and when required but it is worth taking into consideration if the root cause of a problem is coming from an imbalance relevant to a particular chakra and along with medical treatment, alternate therapy is also introduced to bring the energy centres into alignment.
Is your illness really coming from a physical cause?
