Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, or vortex, and it refers to each of the seven major energy centres of which our consciousness, our energy system, is composed.
These chakras, or energy centres, function as pumps or valves, regulating the flow of energy through our energy system. The functioning of the chakras reflects decisions we make concerning how we choose to respond to conditions in our life. We open and close these valves when we decide what to think, and what to feel, and through which perceptual filter we choose to experience the world around us.
The chakras are not physical. They are aspects of consciousness in the same way that the auras are aspects of consciousness. The chakras are more dense than the auras, but not as dense as the physical body. They interact with the physical body through two major vehicles, the endocrine system and the nervous system. Each of the seven major chakras is associated with one of the seven endocrine glands, and also with a group of nerves called a plexus. Thus, each chakra can be associated with a particular part of the body and particular functions within the body controlled by the plexus or the endocrine gland associated with that chakra.
Chakratherapy is a form of energy healing which raises the chakra states to a higher level; it corrects all the errors in their functioning, and cleanses and heals them. This itself brings great healing in us. Chakras start spinning faster and absorb energy from the cosmic continuously. As all the chakras start functioning, we become a reservoir of energy and this brings growth on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level. It increases our energy vibration level to new heights. If a healthy person uses this method, it accelerates his/her growth in all aspects. Chakratherapy makes our body a better place to live.
