Most people have heard of chakras. Some have spent the time, done the research and may have even been lucky enough to have people to talk to about them. Others have heard the term and just let it slide by because it didn’t seem like something that interested them. I understand it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea to dig in and research everything they here and see, this is one that could very easily open your eyes and heart to a totally new and peaceful life.
Let’s start by saying a chakra is an energy center within us. Each energy center is like it’s on mind and maybe even own being inside that gives us knowledge and allows us to pay attention to the environment around us. Have you ever had a “Gut” instinct? Or, felt true love radiate from your heart? Those feelings or that information is coming from those energy centers. Each one has its own job or responsibility and as we bring them into alignment, they can begin working together more and more making life much easier and more enjoyable.
There are different views and thoughts on how many chakras we all have. It can range from 7 or 8 on up to 114. Some would say there are even more than that. As a way to keep this simple while providing an explanation that makes sense, the focus will be on the main 7. As you will see each is vital on its own because it is really a very important information center. Something to keep in mind is even if most are in alignment, even with one or two out of whack, it can throw us for a loop. Those times you feel “out of sorts for no good reason”, it's because you aren’t in alignment. With a little understanding, having good practices in place and using certain tools, we can all get ourselves in alignment.
