What is a Chakra?

Chakra is the Sanskrit word for "wheel". Each chakra is an energy center appearing as a spinning wheel of light. The wheel represents the degree of energy in an individual body. These chakras, which receive and transmit energy, are also called lotuses. Just as a lotus blooms on the water though its roots are buried deep in the murky pond, so also can a chakra open and blossom when we heal ourselves though we continue to live in the world of desires. We become lotuses which blossom in the world but remain untainted by the world.

Chakras vibrate in our subtle body. They are a bridge between the physical and the auric field, transmitting energy from one level to another. This is universal life force energy that is in all living beings. Each chakra is assigned to a major system in our body and is related to organs and glands. In addition, each chakra has its own color and corresponding beej mantra or healing seed sound - an elemental sound, evocative of foundational vibrations specific to human beings.

Benefits of clearing our chakras

Every single thought, feeling and emotion is held in our nervous system. Thus, the unhappy ones can cloud the energy and even block it in time. When a chakra is blocked, we are unable to access high energy level and therefore experience imbalance.

Happy, positive thoughts, feelings and emotions expand the healing energy in our chakras. So, unblocked chakras are excellent indicators of good thoughts, good words, good feelings, emotions, actions and health.

Positive affirmations and visualizations are very helpful for awakening chakras. The opening up of all the chakras gives us clarity, confidence and spiritual guidance to remain centered and at peace with every breath, without using any other person as a crutch. One becomes in-dependent. Therefore the root of all good as well as the root of all evil is in our thoughts. It is entirely up to us to make our heaven on earth.
