Chakra Healing, Bangalore
What are Chakras?
‘Chakra’ is a Sanskrit word, meaning wheel or disk. In terms of our body, a chakra is a vital point, which vibrates with energy. It spins and draws energy from the universe, and this energy flows between chakras along pathways called ‘nadi’s.
Scientifically, a chakra is a point where one or more important glands are present. Proper, healthy functioning of these glands ensures healthy living. Energy-wise, when the chakras are vibrating with positive energy, a person is healthy.
Each chakra governs the body parts linked to the gland, and is linked to certain emotions as well. Imbalance in the chakras could cause physical/ mental/ emotional problems, and vice versa.
The Seven Chakras
There are many chakras in our body, but seven are the most important.
The Root or Muladhar Chakra
The Muladhar chakra relates to basic survival instincts, and is the foundation for the whole chakra system. When this chakra is in harmony, it brings a balance of stability and flexibility to our life. This chakra is also related to the grounding of a person – the force which keeps us firmly connected with ground realities, and also build strong foundations on which to base our life.
The main aspect of this chakra is sexuality. It is the center of emotions, pleasure, sexuality and creativity. It is influenced by the moon, and in turn affects our emotions.
