Understanding Chakra healing
by Christy Lindell, Tofino
" As a different consciousness dawns at the beginning
of a new millennium we are at last shaking off the confines of a
to life and embracing concepts that were accepted by our ancestors
many thousands of years ago."
Book of Chakra Healing
Over the past few decades the explosion of interest in complementary
medicine has led to a deeper understanding of how the body functions
and how energy flows through it. The subtle energy anatomy of the
aura charkas and meridians is becoming increasingly understood and
throughout the medical and health care community as well as millions
of people world wide. While orthodox medicine uses chemistry to describe
our physical system, what is now understood is that for any chemical
action to take place a change in the electromagnetic energy of the
body must occur. This change must emanate from the mind through the
energy of our thought patterns and explains the importance of the
mind-body links to our physical, emotional and mental health.
The fact that we cannot physically detect our charkas or aura can
be explained thus: They operate as energy fields vibrating at a rate
undetectable by the human eye. These ever changing energy flows have
been documented by using Kirlian photography.
Chakra healing is based on the belief that in order for totally balanced
well being we must act as an integrated whole. The holistic nature
of the chakra system outlines how in order to maintain a healthy,
balanced life we must attend not just to certain physical dysfunctions
may occur but to our emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs
as well. Each of the main seven charkas deals with different parts
this bigger picture and directs us to those areas where we might
be functioning out of balance.
Chakras operate like interconnected, self—opening valves that
channel the "electrical current" of universal life force
into the body. When there is a dysfunction or blockage in one part
of the system it has an impact on all the other parts. Such malfunction
can occur when the energy flowing through one or more of the charkas
is either excessive or deficient.
Opening the mind and appreciating the very real benefits that come
from balancing our human energy system we will learn to discard the
need for material evidence of their existence and let personal experience
and enhanced well being provide this for us.
