Chakras are important for our life in every aspect of our being. We can heal a lot of mental, emotional and possibly physical issues with chakra healing. Despite the fact that chakras are often ignored by science and modern medicine they play a big role in the healing process. On the physical level the chakras are connected with the glands and do subtle and imperative work. On the energetic level chakras channel life-force energy which is the main factor in healing. On the emotional level the chakras provide emotional fuel to our feelings. On the mental level the chakras stimulate our thoughts. On the spiritual level the chakras are an entrance to our spirit. Healing the chakras is a process that may happen spontaneously or unconsciously or it may happen consciously. I will explain what I mean by these terms. During our life on the earth we have many different experiences and we meet a lot of people. We accumulate emotional and mental energy from these experiences and people. This mental and emotional energy has 3 frequencies - positive, neutral and negative. Depending on a particular event or a person chakras will absorb into themselves one or more of the frequencies discussed above. This goes for the aura as well but in this article we are talking about the chakras. If the frequency is positive or neutral it will not have a knock-on effect on the person involved. If the absorbed frequency is negative it will impact the chakras. Healing the chakras from negative frequencies becomes possible when we release the energy stuck in the chakras. We can use different techniques to do this and sometimes we need to be persistent to release the negative frequency or energy. Healing the chakras is an art of itself and we can learn from it a lot about ourselves and our inner world. Understanding the chakras and healing them cannot be understood without discussing the chakra themes. The reason for this is that all energies that I talked about - positive, neutral and negative attach themselves to the themes of the chakras. What is a chakra theme? The answer to this question seems simple but it is complicated at the same time. Each chakra contains within itself a primordial force and this force plays a role in our life. There are 7 well-known chakras and in my investigation I have found 8 main chakras with an additional chakra.** Let me summarize the chakra themes.*
Root chakra - security, will, purpose. Sacral chakra - emotional container of relationships, fun, joy. Navel chakra - power, emotional attachment. Solar plexus chakra - control, planning, logic. Heart chakra - love, compassion, giving and receiving. Throat chakra - expression of feelings and thoughts, vocation Third Eye chakra - vision, understanding, perspective. Crown chakra - divine connection, highest energy, cosmic mind.
* This is not a complete list of the chakra themes.
** It is a reference point for future research.
What we can do is to relate the 3 energies that we discussed with the chakra themes. In conclusion: working with the chakras can have a profound result for our healing on all levels.
