Chakra Therapy

Chakras are the energy centers in an individual’s body. Imbalances and blockages in Chakras lead to various physical and mental ailments. It’s not very uncommon to find an individual’s Chakra to be unbalanced or blocked. Balancing or unblocking of Chakras is performed through Chakra Therapy. Blockages in Chakras can be caused by various reasons such as negative emotions, fears and erratic lifestyle. As the Chakras are the gateways of flow of the universal energies to a human body, they have a direct impact on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of an individual. There are many a benefits of Chakra balancing through Chakra Therapy, the primary benefits being optimal physical, mental and emotional health.

There are numerous ways using which an individual’s Chakras can be balanced or unblocked. Chakra Sadhana or Chakra Meditation, Yoga, Aroma and Color Therapy and other energy healing techniques are some of the ways which are used to balance Chakra. But the best and easiest way to balance Chakras is by using Rudraksha beads and Gemstones. Rudraksha beads emit frequencies and Gemstones radiate colors that resonate with various Chakras and thus help balance Chakras. However, we look at the following mysterious therapies that heal the blocked Chakras:

Brief Description of Chakras and Their Role As Aura permeates our physical body it creates swirling vortexes of energy at specific places which are our endocrine glands. These vortexes of energy look like spinning wheels and hence the name ‘Chakras’. There are seven major Chakras, each of which controls specific organs in the body and are in turn governed by expressions, feelings and senses, including the sixth sense. As we go through different experiences and challenges that life poses to us in our path to realisation of perfection, our thoughts, attitudes and reactions which tend towards fears or negativity, block our chakras. These negative emotion(s), faulty beliefs or rigid, dogmatic spiritual perceptions have to be released in order to open the chakras. Once chakras get blocked, the free flow of energy to the chakras gets inhibited and you develop emotional disorder and physical ailment related to the chakras. By working with your Chakras, you can clear away the stagnant negative energy/ belief that does not serve your highest purpose. This broadens your perspective which will assist you in making the changes necessary for better health, harmonious relationships and personal and financial wellbeing.
7 Chakras
Every major chakra has a link to the seven endocrine glands of the physical body. Endocrine glands are glands that secrete their hormones directly into the blood stream. Each chakra is also ruled by a specific planet and specific deities. The planets seen in Astrology charts are planets in the chakras.The table below gives the relation.

All the endocrine glands, with their hormones, work together to keep the body in perfect health.Hormones have many effects on many organs, tissues and bodily functions. Endocrine glands bring to life many spiritual qualities like will power, persistence, exertion, but they can also cause apathy, indifference, or laziness when hormone production is interrupted. Endocrine glands are also transformers of cosmic powers into the vital energy necessary for the physical body.
