I am sure that you understand that each vortex of energy, each chakra relates to certain aspects of our Being. For instance the base chakra concerns itself with material, financial and family matters. While the throat chakra is about our expression, speaking our truth.
For a moment I would like to invite you to pretend that you are scooping your hand into your body. Physically and literally do the action of taking a chakra, for instance take the solar plexus chakra, take it out and hold it in your hand. For a moment I would like you to extend your other hand towards it, gently and carefully. Can you feel its circumference? Can you feel its energy? Can you feel its vibration? How does it feel?
And maybe you can close your eyes, and for a moment connect with the chakra in your hand. Maybe you can see it, or you can hear it vibrate. Or maybe you can taste something. Become aware of any sensations when you connect with this chakra.
And now I would like to invite you to place the chakra back and just note how it feels where it sits. Generally the chakras are aligned down the spine, from the crown the head down to the base of the spine at the perineum, where the base chakra sits. These are your physical chakras and we work with seven main chakras (although each chakra has sub-chakras and minor chakras.) Each organ has its own chakras, sub- and minor chakras. There are chakras on the palms of your hands, the tips of your fingers as well as the soles of your feet and the tips of your toes.
To effective balance your system, we will only be working with the seven main chakras in the physical body. Later on, when you are ready, I invite you to make a study of the transpersonal and the subpersonal chakras. Transpersonal are the chakras that are above the head, and subpersonal are the chakras below the feet.
I, personally, work with twelve plus one chakras, but that amount of information becomes intimidating when you are just starting out with your own journey through the chakras; it is a lot of information to try and digest! So keep it simple for now, and once you have worked with, and understand the seven physical chakras as best you can, only then would I suggest you move on to expand your knowledge and experience to the Ascension Chakras.
Why is it important to manage the chakras?
Sometimes we go through experiences that may cause one or more chakra, to become unbalanced. We have been taught that a chakra can become blocked. I believe it is more a question of a chakra’s influence at a particular time in your life, may be more or less prevalent than at any other time. You may be going through a financial slump, yet your creativity is flowing. Maybe you find it difficult to follow your intuition, yet emotionally and compassionately you are in top form and helping so many people feel good about themselves.
