The 7 Influencers of Your Life, Chakras

Chakras are believed to control energy and to draw it to them. This energy keeps the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health of your body balanced.

Each of your Chakras has its own unique “personality”, each controlling a specific aspect of your life. So if you’re experiencing any form of physical or mental shortcomings, limitations or challenges in your life, there’s a high chance one of your Chakras is weak.

Healing through Chakras can come from variety of places. You might be surprised to find out that even the foods you eat can effect your chakras and in turn the emotional and physical ailments that are associated with them.

Several modern healing techniques use Chakra points. Practices like aromatherapy, mantras, Reiki, hands healing, flower essence healing, sound therapy, light therapy, and crystal therapy all rely on balance at your energy points or chakras.

You can also fuel your chakras through visualization techniques. Similar to meditation, visualization allows energy to flow through your chakras. To do this you must be able to visualize at colour, like white light or one associated with a particular chakra coursing through your body.
