The word Chakra is Sanskrit means “Wheel or Disc”. The seven major chakras are discs of energy and information that reside deep in the body. They act as receptors, assimilators, and transmitters of life force energies. Our chakras form a vast and detailed coordinating network of the mind/body system. There is information that is stored in the chakras. The information contained in thoughts and emotions, as well as actions and events, move through these energy doorways into the body. In turn there becomes a physiological response in the body from the information it receives. In addition, the seven chakras are directly linked to the seven major glands of the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates every physiological process that occurs in the body.
Therefore, the chakras are the direct link between thoughts and emotions and their effect on our body. Chakra balancing is a wonderful modality to bring harmony, balance, and clarity to the body.
