What are chakras?

  • ‘Chakra’ means ‘wheel’ or ‘disk’.
  • Spinning centres of free-flowing high density energy.
  • Each has its own colour and vibrational frequency.
  • Aligned invisibly and vertically along the spinal column.
  • Their primary goal is to keep us functioning at optimum levels.
  • It is essential they are balanced in order to stay open and aligned.
  • Their energy flow is directly affected by everything we do, our thoughts, emotions, health and state of mind.
  • There are 7 main chakras associated with reiki, explained below.
  • Additional chakras are present within our bodies, which are less well known.

Balanced

  • When all the chakras are balanced our entire body is in harmony and we feel energised, elevated and whole.
  • We are able to release toxins and everyday debris as our energy flows freely.

Blocked/imbalanced

  • Blocked energy in a chakra/s can leave us prone to illness in that area or areas of the body.
  • Negative emotions, fears, an unhealthy lifestyle and or habits can all contribute to blockages and imbalances.
  • Due to the location of each chakra, a blocked or imbalanced chakra relates to specific ailments and physical, emotional, spiritual and mental dysfunctions.
  • When a chakra is blocked, other chakras work hard to compensate and as a result become over or under active, causing issues for others.
