Chakras are important Entry Gates of the Aura.
Within the physical body resides a body double, a spiritual or etheric body, that contains the Chakras.
The word Chakra in Sanscrit translates to wheel or disc.
They are centers of activity that receives, assimilates and expresses life force energy. They are responsible for the person's physical, mental, and spiritual functions.
They absorb and transmit energies to and from the universe, nature, celestial entities, from people even from things.
According to the traditional writings there are 80,000 chakras in the human body covering basically every area in the body. The majority of them are small and insignificant. 40 of them have significant function and they are in the hands, feet, fingertips, and shoulders. The most significant ones are the Eleven Main Chakras located along the central line of the body, from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
They are located in the ethereal body and they express the embodiment of spiritual energy on the physical plane.
HOW CHAKRAS AFFECT US?
The chakras are constantly rotating and vibrating.
The activities in the them influence our:
Body shape, Glandular processes, Chronic physical ailments, Thoughts, and Behaviour.
When one (or more) of the chakra is blocked and the energy does not flow harmoniously through them, or it is wide open, it will result in imbalance that is manifested in all areas of life.
Each chakra is expressed on the physical body in one of the endocrine glands that regulate physical and emotional processes in the body. The imbalance in the chakra will also be expressed in the endocrine gland linked to it.
HOW CAN WE ASSESS THE CHAKRAS
You can do a chakra assessment:
a) Using your Hands
b) Using a Pendulum (Dowsing)
Place your pendulum over each chakra and ask your pendulum for its: direction, size and speed.
Construct your own or use a Chakra chart to determine on which chakra to work on, if it is balanced, under or over energized.
In the same manner you can determine if or what stones or colors may be needed. Go through each of the chakras and make sure that you construct your questions in a way that they can always be answered with a YES or NO.
It is not necessary to do the assessment over the clients body. It can be done over the palm as well. The first chakra can be assessed over the wrist, the second at the thumb, the third over the middle finger, the fourth over a small finger, the fifth over the index finger, the sixth over the ring finger and finally the seventh chakra over the palm.

ABOUT THE SEVEN POWER CENTERS
According to the Eastern understanding, the Universal Life Force flows through the top of the head and down the chakras, nurturing our bodies with seven distinct kinds of energy, each essential to our physical and spiritual development. And it flows upward through the chakras, communicating individual insight and a conscious sense of universal interconnectedness.
We can think of chakras as floppy discs that contain vital programs.
They contain programmed subroutines that shape our behaviour. We all function by sets of programs, which may or may not be conscious. In this analogy the body is the hardware, our programming is the software, and the Self is the user. We did not write all of these programs, and some of their language is very archaic. The challenge before us is to identify our programs and rewrite them all while continuing to live our lives, yet this is the task of healing.

The chakra system can be used as a tool to fight viruses, debug and reprogram our lives. In order to run any of our programs we have to activate our energy currents, which is bipolar as mentioned above:
* Earth-centered which we contact through our bodies called grounding ( comes from the solid contact we make with the earth through feet and legs), which provides connection that makes us feel safe, alive, centered in ourselves, and rooted in environment and the pole of consciousness which is experienced through our minds, and this is our inner understanding, our memory, our dreams, and beliefs. We have a dynamic energy flow throughout our entire being when it is connected to our body.
We can plug in into this system just as we plug in our stereo. The chakras than become like stations, receiving and broadcasting at different frequencies.
The seven vortices of the chakras are created by the combination of these two active principles: consciousness and matter.
Consciousness enters through the crown chakra and flows downward through the body, than upward from earth to ethereal consciousness.
In order to be whole, a human being needs a balance between the downward flow and the upward flow of energy. Blockages in any of the chakras affects the flow of the currents.
Note: The Earth, as a living organism, has its own chakra centers.
They link with major grid points based on sacred geometry.
What blocks a chakra?
Childhood traumas, cultural conditioning, limited belief system, bad habits, physical and emotional injuries. Or even just lack of attention all contribute to chakra blockage.
Difficulties abound in life, for each one, we develop a coping strategy. If these difficulties persist, these coping strategies become chronic patterns, anchored in the body and psyche as defense structures. It is important to recognize the blocks we carry, find and understand their source and meaning, and develop tools to heal them.
Furthermore we have to consider that we are reincarnated on earth to pass a specific learning pattern – compare it to a school – to improve and balance our Being – ‘I AM’ REALITY. Therefore you carry from your past incarnations also thought and emotional pattern or elementals (click here to learn more) in your aura – specifically in your chakra system that will influence your health and life experience.
The Balanced System
It is possible to be relatively balanced through the chakras without being an enlightened master. People who have done lot of their own healing work or were lucky in their upbringing may be relatively balanced.
What would a balanced person look like?
The person would be:
- well grounded and in touch with their body,
- in good health and vitality
- aware of their feelings without being ruled by them,
- sexually content without being driven,
- with balanced third chakra they would have confidence and confidence without dominating
- the heart would be compassionate and loving, yet centered and peaceful,
- could communicate feelings or ideas with truth and clarity and be able to listen to others,
- their upper chakra would bring imagination, wisdom and a personal connection with spirit.
This is an ideal we hope to strive. We all have the means to achieve it, only it takes time, patience and dedication.
The work depend entirely on the person's structure and the practitioner's style. The main thing to remember is that body, soul, mind and spirit together with the seven chakras, are one invisible whole.
