What are Chakras?

The chakra system is a template for the flow of subtle energy that runs through all life and through the human energy system. It is like a ladder that takes us from the physical realm of substance up through the workings of the higher mind and spirit and into the realm of divine consciousness.

The subtle energy is the force field surrounding all living things. In the human body, this force field is the aura, and the seven layers of energy referred to as subtle bodies. These control our physical well-being, emotional stability, and mental clarity. They reflect our spiritual state and mirror how we feel about ourselves and life in general.

A chakra resembles a large cone and acts like a vortex drawing energy in. The outer lip catches the accumulated stress of the day. The body of the cone is all our ideas and attitudes about life. The seeds of our destiny are at the very tip where the chakra meets the energetic spine. These seeds cannot be opened until we have worked on removing our negativity and self-limiting beliefs. These beliefs and negativity block our energy.

Chakra energy and function.

When something in life happens that blocks the flow of life energy, the chakras slow down, and energy becomes sluggish and even stagnant. It this is a brief occurrence, the chakra will resume the natural flow. If the block is more permanent, the chakra will need stimulation to become active again. Our health and well-being are subject to our chakras being active and balanced.

Third Eye, Brow Chakra – Where it is and what it relates to

Third Eye Chakra Symbol
Third Eye Chakra Symbol

Chakras exist on all levels of the human energy field, some as connections between the levels. If functioning well they act as anchors between these levels.
Light energy and love is always trying to get through the vortices.
When we get inspiration this is energy moving.
We should not let emotions, feelings within get suppressed. We should process these feelings and by feeling them, understand and let go.

Common problems are the chakras’ being blocked, excessive (over active) and deficient (under active).
Energy Healing can balance your chakras by channelling colour, light and love to them and restructuring if necessary.

The brow, third eye chakra is surrounded by energy and radiates a deep indigo blue colour. Doreen Virtue says “your third eye records a movie of your life, including everything you think, feel and do. It also records all the emotions felt by everyone with whom you come into contact. After you pass on to the other side you will watch this movie during a life review”. The third eye is related to the future, past and beliefs about spirits. Your negative thoughts and fears around the past, future and your spiritual beliefs will unbalance or block this chakra
