WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?
The 7 chakras are energy vortexes that radiate and transform light. The chakras are our connection with the universe. They absorb cosmic and earth energy and transform these frequencies into our own unique energy system to show us the meaning of life. In a way - the chakras are our teachers. They teach us what to do with our life. They teach us how to use our best talents to progress.
CAN WE PROVE THAT CHAKRAS EXIST?
Science and a lot of people do not believe that chakras exist. In this world of modern technology - humans focus on material, tangible things. "Chakras are just an illusion!" We can often hear this statement in one form or another. People are too obsessed with mobile phones, cars, artificial intelligence. "If I can't touch it, it is not real" This is another statement mentioned often by people. Science and its "proven theories" are the respectful ones. However, in this article I will give you a proof that chakras exist. It will be a scientific approach! Next time when someone close to you does hurt you emotionally - notice where you feel the pain? I bet, the place will be in the middle of your chest - heart chakra. This chakra relates to love and compassion. When you are not allowed to speak your truth - notice where you feel the restrictions? In the throat - throat chakra. This chakra relates to self-expression. When you feel unsafe - notice where you feel insecure? Beneath your genitals - root chakra. This chakra relates to survival. This is a valuable exercise. It proves the existence of the chakras - the energy centres. It is a wonderful opportunity to understand our human nature.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO OPEN MY CHAKRAS?
I will give you my personal opinion and it is based on my experience. The chakras exist in us as wheels of light. Every chakra has its own unique frequency. Every chakra contains lessons to be learnt. These life lessons start from our birth. We understand the world around us through the chakras. We absorb information through the chakras. We receive cosmic, sun and earth energy through them. The chakras are always open to process these forces, mentioned above. This is a constant progress of learning. It is not possible for the chakras to be closed. Why people do talk about "how to open your chakras?" My answer to this statement is: In life we meet difficult and negative situations. These situations create blockages in the chakras. So, I will change the question "how to open your chakras?" into "how to clear blockages in your chakras?". My answer to this question is: chakra healing meditations, healing physical activities and new positive ways of thinking.
