WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?
The whole purpose of Reiki is to rebalance the flow of Life Force Energy in our chakras and energy systems. There are 7 main chakras in our energy system that are placed along the spine, or governing meridian, to the top of the head. Chakras are vortexes that spin through the front and back of the body except for the root chakra that spins downward at the base of the spine and the crown chakra that spins upward at the top of the head.
Each chakra has its own purpose, governs specific areas of the body and areas of our life. For example, the root chakra, which is at the base of the spine, is our survival center. It's concern is whether or not we have our basic needs met such as shelter, security and financial needs. Our chakras are affected by every aspect of our lives including what happens to us, what we do and our thoughts. If someone is experiencing financial issues their root chakra can become imbalanced causing physical or emotional symptoms such as lower back pain and aggressive behavior.
Chakras communicate with us by manifesting symptoms in the body. Our physical body is like a blueprint where each part is linked to our chakras and energy system. Based on what area that a chakras govern you will see symptoms appear.
Sometimes if there is an imbalance in one chakra the chakras next to it can work on overdrive and can create symptoms as well. There can always be some overlap and more than one reason for an emotional or physical symptom of the body.
