Definition of Chakras
Chakra (which in Sanskrit is spelled Cakra, the “c” being pronounced as a “ch”) is a Sanskrit term which means spinning wheel or vortex. Today, the modern usage of the word is “Wheel of Light,” although originally it was used to refer to a chariot wheel.
Interestingly, the ancient healers’ description of the Chakras or Energy Centers first studied and written about 2600 years ago has proven to be anatomically correct. The location of the 7 Chakras which everyone has, correspond to our bodies as follows:
The first five are the five main nerve ganglia of the spinal column where the nerve endings form junctions. At the nerve ganglia, nerves from different organs and parts the body join the spinal cord.
The other two are the upper and lower areas of the brain.
Each Chakra is also associated with one of the seven endocrine glands. Thus each organ, the entire body and its functions are connected to our Chakras by the nerves which generate out from them and by the endocrine glands associated with them.
Chakras and Vibration
Everything moves, from atoms to planets millions of light years away. Electrons move around the nucleus of an atom. Planets revolve around their suns. Everything moves and therefore everything vibrates.
Where there is vibration, there is sound.
Every part of our body vibrates at a specific sound frequency. Each of the seven Chakras has a specific sound associated with it. Colors also vibrate at a specific frequency. And each Chakra has a color associated with it.
That is why the use of color and sound can return balance to our Chakras causing restored health.
Chakras are associated with our physical, mental and emotional states.
When energy does not flow freely from the Chakras, the body does not function properly. We need to reestablish the free flow of energy in order to heal.
The key to health is for our 7 Chakras to be in balance. Through stress of any kind, physical, emotional, psychological, our Chakras can become unbalanced or out of tune. Eventually, disease can result. Returning our Chakras to balance can heal our diseases. Or better yet, keeping our Chakras in balance can keep us healthy physically, emotionally and psychologically.
