The 7 Chakras For Beginners


Chakras

The word chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. Chakras are seen as spinning wheels of light by those with the ability to see subtle energy

While chakras have been incorporated in many spiritual practices, their existence is based, not upon religion, but upon awareness of energy.

Scientific instrumentation is now beginning to record and validate them.

Chakras are energy centres that regulate the energy flowing between our physical and energy bodies.

We have aura and astral bodies, known collectively as energy bodies, that surround our physical body.

Our energy bodies are also known as auric layers. They contain different types of information that correspond to our chakras.

The first layer is known as the etheric layer. It is very close to our physical body and holds information about our physical health.

This layer vibrates between 1 to 2 inches away from the physical body.

The second layer is known as the emotional layer and holds information about our emotions and feelings.

It vibrates between 1 to 3 inches away from the physical body.

The third layer is known as the mental layer and holds information about our ideas, thoughts and mental processes.

It vibrates between 3 to 8 inches away from the physical body.

These auric layers send and receive energy from the seven main chakras in the physical body.
