Everything is energy! From the biggest mountains or oceans, to the tiniest blades of grass, to each individual cell in our body… It is ALL energy.
All of our cells emit energy in different ways, and different cells will emit different kinds of energy depending on where they are located within the body and what their job is. It should come as no surprise, then, that given the specialized nature of your body’s energy, there are several different channels located on key points of the body through which energy can flow in and out in a constant stream. These are called chakras or energy centers.
The word chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit. Chakra energy spins in a clockwise direction as it moves the energy of our body out into the energetic field, and it spins counterclockwise to pull energy from our external world (and the people in it) into our body. It is the frequency state of our chakras that determines the direction our energy will flow as they either draw energy into our body or release it outward.
You might be wondering how we can know chakras exist if we can’t actually see them. Think of it this way: can you see how the communication goes through your cell phone? Or the flow of electricity? Not really, but they do exist!
The Chakra system has existed for thousands of years and across cultures. It has been studied and demonstrated time and again in the Aurvedic tradition, as well as through the Chinese concepts of qi and meridians.
