We have rivers of electrical currents coursing through our bodies picking up signals around us and within us. These rivers of energy are unseen to the natural eye, but we can feel them. For instance, have you ever felt someone staring at you from behind only to turn and look at them and actually catching them in the act! It’s like having eyes in the back of your head!
One way the body detects such experiences is through energy centers called Chakras. Chakras mean, “spinning wheel” and are energy vortexes located along the spine. There are seven major chakras that are multi-dimensional meaning they extend out the front as well as the back. Each chakra governs certain regions or functions of the body depending on where they are located. For example, the chakras located on the head govern the pineal and pituitary glands in the brain.
Chakras are also energy receptors and transmitters of our emotional, mental and spiritual levels of our bodies and are meant to metabolize energy. We are energy beings or spiritual beings as well as physical ones. It’s the energy part of us that is the transmitter and recorder of all our thoughts and interactions.
Scientifically, how is this explained? Since the chakras of the body not only take in and release energy they transfer the energy to a super highway of electricity called Meridians. They flow to the nervous system which leads to the spine and, eventually, reach the brain. The brain relays messages to the rest of the body by releasing hormones throughout the body through the endocrine system. The hormones are carried through the blood and then to receptor sites on the cells. It’s the destructive cellular memories within our bodies that create a disease or, on the other hand, a feeling of wholeness. True healing of any kind occurs at the cellular level.
Say, for instance, a child grew up in a terrible home environment and chose to harbor anger and resentment from the experiences he or she had. Those experiences along with the intense emotion are recorded in the DNA of the cells of the body. Overtime the cells begin to resonate at a certain frequency or disease and begin to manifest itself as a physical ailment. Therefore, each illness and each body organ has its own frequency or vibrational pattern. The body is actually like a story book or a self-help book ready to be opened and ingested. The body is saying, “Pay attention to me! I am trying to tell you something. The resentment and anger you are holding onto are creating liver problems!” Only when the person is listening to his or her body and willing to delve deep inside can the issue be addressed.
