Chakras
The chakras are bands of light which flow through the body.  The word chakra comes from
the Sanskrit word for "wheel" or "disk".  Their origins stem from the yoga system;  more
specifically from the Vedas (Holy books of the Hindus).

The system is dated back as far as 2500 B.C.

How many Chakras are there?
There are hundreds of chakras on the body in the hands, feet
and at each of the joints.  The main (& largest) energy centres consist of 7.  The 7 are
arranged vertically along the spinal column
(starting at the coccyx & proceeding upward toward the crown of the head).


What do the Chakras have to do with anything?
The chakra system (and consequently healing) is based on the belief that in order for total
well being to occur we must act as an integrated whole.  The chakras form the basis to
healing our physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual selves.

If our chakra system is working properly for us;  we are considered to be balanced and in
optimum health.

If they are out of balance;  we have illness and dis-ease in our bodies making healing much
more challenging if not impossible.


What are the Chakras really for?
The chakras are like 'inner computers' ......lookout Microsoft......
(.........yes they existed long before Bill Gates & will exist way after!)

They store our programming about how we function in our lives;

The
1st Chakra is like our survival file:  what we eat, when we need exercise, where we
live, how/why we will anger etc.,.
The
2nd Chakra provides us with our sexuality program:  hosting our views of
self-respect/self-love, our ethics and preferences.
The
3rd Chakra is our power program:  our personal will resides here.

The upper chakras have to do with perception and intellegence (they are our motherboards
so to speak).

Our bodies or internal computers are all different models;  each of us being individuals (think
Apple vs. Microsoft here) we are programmed with a distinct language......each using unique
operating systems.
