Open Your Chakras - Chakra energy Test
We all have seven chakras - invisible energy centres that control our life force. Our chakras can become blocked and if this happens a chakra therapist can restore the flow of energy, sometimes by laying the corresponding semi precious stone over the chakra to re-open it. Recently I was shocked when Isobel, one of my readers picked up on very specific physical symptoms that she told me needed the attention of a chakra therapist. I had sensations of pins & needles & shortness of breath that was alleviated by placing precious stones over my throat chakra.
Whether you believe or not, chakras are at the basis of many eastern belief systems. Essential to Yoga, chakras are now an extremely popular subject in New Age circles. Originating in India around the middle ages, the term "chakra" is derived from the sanskrit word meaning wheel.
The major chakras extend along the nerves along the spinal column. Starting at the perineum with the Root chakra and extending right up to the top of the head with the Crown chakra. Each chakra is represented by a different colour - going from red at the root, right up to violet at the crown. Chakras control not only energy but also govern many different feelings and emotions.
Chakras should be balanced and open, resonating at a similar frequency to each other. Unfortunately the modern lifestyle leaves many of us with chakras that are unbalanced or even closed completely.
