What are Your Chakras and What Can They Do For You

Chakras are wheels of energy that are located along your physical spine. Like your nerves and blood vessels feed your physical body, your chakras feed your energetic body. For them to do this efficiently they should be aligned and free spinning. You keep them that way by your awareness of them and how they feel when they are misaligned or blocked.

What misalignes them? Stress is the biggest factor. You hear of “good stress” and “bad stress” but the truth of the matter is that stress is stress, there is no good or bad. Your idea and notion about whether it is good or bad can and does add to the intensity so you may want to consider changing you paradigm around this subject. A neutral attitude about stress will make it easier for you to detach your emotions about  the subject that is stressing you and allow you to calm down, thus helping lower the stress.

As you learn more about these wonderful things in your body/mind system the more fascinating they become. They can let you know something is amiss before you feel bad or sick. They can give you guidance about whether a food or product is beneficial to you before you buy it. As you become more adept at using your energetic system you will be able to make better judgments and choices that impact your life.

In this series of articles, I will tell you a bit about each chakra area, what it affects and other information about it. The series will begin with the first chakra and rise to the seventh. To get you started, I have compiled a list of  them with some of their lesser known attributes.

The Sanskrit is in the parenthesizes.
