Can you explain what the chakras are?

Q: Can you explain what the chakras are?

A: The chakras are spinning vortices of energy that reside in the subtle body. The subtle body is that hidden field of energy, within you (the etheric body) that carries all of your imprints, memories, emotions, habits……..basically any experience that has ever happened to you is stored here in these centers. There are seven major vital centers within the body, and each one corresponds with the glands in these areas. There is the root chakra or center at the perineum (center of security), then the sacral plexus at the sexual organs/pelvis (center of sexuality, creativity and integration), then at the belly is the solar plexus (center of empowerment and will). Above the Thymus gland is the heart chakra at the heart center, then we move to the throat chakra where the thyroid resides (place where we speak our truth), then we move up to the third eye between our eyebrows (this is the center of visualization, clairvoyance & where we make our creations become reality). The crown chakra is at the top of the head and beyond (the space where we feel God and our connection with all that is). It is here where we attain Samadhi-blissful cosmic consciousness through deep meditation .

You can think of these areas as computer software that has been downloaded into the hard-drive of your physical body. These areas take information in, from life experience, processes the information and then expresses it back out again. I realize that at first, these centers can seem abstract, yet we have all felt the physical sensations in these areas: Sore feet (out of the blue), The butterflies in the stomach, the heart “breaking”, the lump in the throat, the headache……………. When the energy in these centers is not vibrant and spinning, thus a block, we start to feel the sensation. The body is intelligent. It will always tell you what is going on. We then know that we have an unresolved and unhealed issue at this level. It is fascinating and yet, quite a simple system. We have to be willing to do the work, though, to clear it. Otherwise it will manifest into dis-ease.
