What is a Chakra? A Sanskrit word meaning wheel, or vortex, and it refers to each of the Energy Centers of which our consciousness or energy system is composed.

These Chakra’s or Energy Centers, function as pumps or valves, regulating the flow of energy through our energy system. I like to think of the human body as it’s own Unique Eco System, within another Eco System. The function of each of the Chakras reflects on decisions we make concerning how we choose to respond to conditions in our life. We open and close these valves when we decide what to think, and what to feel, and through which perceptual filter we choose to experience the world around us.

They are not Physical, they are aspects of consciousness in the same way that the auras are aspects of consciousness. The Chakra are more dense than the auras, but not as dense as the physical body. They interact with the physical body through three major vehicles: the endocrine system, the nervous system and the meridians. The chakra’s are associated with an endocrine gland, and also with a group of nerves called a plexus, along with the meridians. Chakras being associated with particular parts of the body, and different functions within the body, controlled by that plexus or endocrine gland associated with that Chakra.

All your senses, your perceptions, possible states of awareness, everything that is possible to experience can be divided into these Chakra Centers. These categories being associated with different energy centers, represent not only particular parts of the body, but also intercorrelate with particular parts of your consciousness as well.

When you feel tension in your consciousness, you feel it in the chakra associated with that part of your consciousness experiencing the stress, along with the parts of they physical body associated with the Chakra itself. Where you feel the stress depends upon “Why” you feel the stress. The tension in the Chakra is detected by the nerves of the plexus associated with the chakra, and transmitted to the parts of the body controlled by that plexus. When the tension continues over a period of time, or to a particular level of intensity, the person creates a symptom on the physical level.

The “symptom” speaks a language that reflects the idea that we each create our reality, and the metaphoric significance of the symptom becomes apparent when the symptom is described from that point of view. Thus, rather than saying, ” I can’t see”, the person would describe it as keeping themselves from seeing something. “I can’t walk”, means the person has been keeping themselves from walking away from a situation in which they are unhappy and so on.

The Symptom served to communicate to the person through their body what they had been doing to themselves in their consciousness. When the person changes something about their way of “Being”, and it can be released, according to whatever the person allows themselves to believe as possible.

Understanding the chakras allows you to understand the relationship between your consciousness and your body, and thus see your body as a map of your consciousness. It gives you a better understanding of yourself and those around you.

The Root Chakra centers upon our core needs for survival, security and livelihood. When the Root Chakra is unbalanced, you will feel ungrounded, confused and lack the ability to move forward. Without a balanced Root Chakra, it is impossible to fully balance the other chakras.
