Firstly, it is important to understand basic science of energy. Energy cannot be destroyed, it can however be changed.
We have energy flowing through us and around us. We have an energy field around us known as an Aura. An aura extends approximately 2 meters from the physical body; however, this varies depending on the persons development and the space they are in at a given time. An aura surrounds all living things.
Ideally the aura should be clear, bright, glowing – with vibrant colours. However, the aura can become polluted with dark shadows or clouds which attract unwanted negative energies. This polluted aura can leave you feeling ill, tired, down, unbalanced and depressed. It can also lead to more challenges and difficulties being drawn towards you. There are several factors that can contribute to weakening your aura: poor diet, alcohol and drugs, stress, and lack of rest. A healthy aura can be maintained through more self-care and good attitude and behaviours.
The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs have their own energy field which is continually changing. Just as the physical body has layers such as the skin, tissue, muscle, and bone, the human energy body has layers—physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The main energy systems are called chakras.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel or vortex, and it refers to energy centres of which our consciousness, our energy system, is composed. These chakras or energy centres, function as pumps or valves, regulating the flow of energy through our energy system. The functioning of the chakras reflects 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 we interpret and choose to experience the world around us.
There are seven main chakras which can be associated with particular parts of the body and particular functions within the body. All of your senses, all of your perceptions, all of your possible states of awareness, everything is possible for you to experience, can be divided into seven categories. Thus, the chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also particular parts of your consciousness. Chakras allow you to understand the relationship between your body and consciousness.
If your chakras are unbalanced or blocked, you are more likely to feel unwell on some level. But if it is balanced and flowing freely, you will feel healthy and happy.
