The Chakras At A Glance

Chakras are organizational centers for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life-force energy. They are the stepping stones between heaven and earth.     

Anodea Judith

I came across the word chakra at a very young age. To me it seemed weird, what do you mean by a vortex of energy inside me ? What colors are you talking about. I don’t see anything. When you come from a world, where it is taught to believe only what you see, it is very hard to believe anything that lacks factual evidence.

Being a science student made it even harder. I understood centrifugal force and Newtonian laws. They were constant, always giving the same result. None of that could explain to me, why mystics would believe we have different levels of energy fields inside us.
But a deep yearning, a knowing that there was truth in this made me search for answers and finally I came across Kirilian photography.Here was evidence that showed the existence of a field which was quite invisible to the human eye. I give you and example of kirilian photography below which shows difference between organic and regular mushrooms.

My next step was trying to see the aura. And if you work at it, you can see the etheric field( the first field)  quite easily. Within a few minutes, you will see the glow around your fingers. The reason you can see it so fast is, because all it takes is to retrain your eye, to do something it did when you born. That is see through your peripheral vision.

So after I saw the first field, I knew this was the truth. And I delved into it further. I see colors now. But my subject has to be still for me to see it, so I still have a long way to go.

But let me explain in simple terms what are chakras

Our body looks like a single unit, until we look deeper and see our organs and the systems that are needed to make it all work together as a unified whole. In the similar fashion each physical unit has its own energy unit and our primary energy organs are called chakras/energy vortex ( more like energy stations). Our energy circulation system is called meridians. There are many more energy systems as lined in the book called ‘ Energy Medicine ‘ by Donna Eden. This is one of the best books I have come across, written by a truly gifted soul

Each chakra supplies energy to specific organs, corresponds to a distinct aspect of your personality, and resonates (respectively, from the bottom to the top chakra) with one of seven universal principles having to do with survival, creativity, identity, love, expression, comprehension, or transcendence. Your chakras also code your experiences in their energies, just as memories are chemically coded in your neurons. An imprint of every emotionally significant event you have experienced is believed to be recorded in your chakra energies.

Energy Medicine – Donna Eden

Reiki is a healing modality which uses universal energy to heal abnormalities and enhance our energy systems. Practitioners channel this universal/divine using intention and symbols, to their patients chakras to release associated pain.
