Chakras: What are the 7 Chakras of the Body and Their Meaning?

The chakras are revolving wheels or energy vortices responsible for the regulation of the energy body and are found throughout the length and width of our energy body (Aura), inter penetrating all our fields: Etheric Field (the closest to the body; layer of up to about 6 cm thick); Emotional Field; Mental Field and Spiritual Field.

The concept of the chakras was born in the Hindu culture, and falls within the sacred texts of the Vedas (Knowledge), mainly within those known as “Upanishads”, written around the seventh century BC The Sanskrit word “chakra”, means wheel and alludes to the form, the image, of how these Chakras are perceived.

The chakras are the main agents of regulation of this energy field of ours, acting as transformers or gateways to energy.

What are the Chakras?

The concept of the chakras was born in the Hindu culture, and falls within the sacred texts of the Vedas (Knowledge), mainly within those known as “Upanishads”, written around the seventh century BC The Sanskrit word Chakra means wheel and it alludes to the form, the image, of how these Chakras are perceived.

The chakras are spinning wheels or energy vortices that are found throughout the length and width of our energy body (Aura), inter penetrating all our fields: Etheric Field (The closest to the body; layer up to 6 cm thick); Emotional Field; Mental Field and Spiritual Field.

The Chakras are the main agents of regulation of this energy field of ours, acting as transformers or gateways to Energy: They receive, accumulate, transform, distribute and adjust the Vital Energy of the organism (known as Prana).

To fully understand the functioning of the Chakras, it is necessary to understand that everything is energy ; this is but one more manifestation of reality (more subtle than Matter). We continuously interact with all kinds of Energy, more or less subtle, in the same way that we have different types of experiences and experiences (each of which produces a different response from our body).

The Chakras absorb the Energy, process it and before assimilating it, they make an adjustment, tuning it to the optimal and particular vibratory frequency of each Being, to later rush into our physical body, where a physiological response is triggered.

In addition, each Chakra is the confluence, a nodal point, of numerous energy distribution highways that circulate through the body. Where there is a large crossroads point, there is a processing and regulation post, called Chakra. These pathways, channels and paths of Energy are called Nadis, of which it is said there are more than 72,000.

From the 3 main Nadis: Ida (Left Channel), Pingala (Right Channel) and Sushumna (Run the entire spine), the 7 Main Chakras arise. Accompanying this system of main Chakras, there are 21 Minor Chakras and hundreds of Tertiary Centers, of less relevance, but equally important, for the maintenance of our Health.

The Chakras are a very important diagnostic element when carrying out any energy therapy or of any other nature, since the information that we can extract from them is very valuable for clinical practice.

Using the Chakras in Clinical Practice

The use of Chakra information in clinical practice is immense. Here are some examples:

A person with a kidney problem comes to us, and with his medical history we discover that he recently lost his job. With this information we spin the therapy: Kidney we know that it is from the 1st. Center or Root Chakra, which governs the functioning of the adrenals, which have to do with survival and support, which has been removed by the loss of your job. We know that, in part, the therapeutic action will be aimed at resolving the imbalance in the 1st. Center.
On the other hand, all the centers form a symbiosis or global synthesis of action, through relationship axes that provide us with a greater amount of information.

The 2nd Center is related to the 5th. Both have to do with expression, with creative development. We cannot treat one without the other: An excess of energy in the 5th Center means an energy defect in the 2nd…
And so we can spin, simply with the basic information that the Chakras provide us, a global therapy, not limited by the symptom, and have positive therapeutic repercussions on the entire organism…

The chakras expand our awareness of the field of health.
