What is a Chakra?
A chakra is a wheel-like energy center that has the ability to receive, assimilate and transmit energy. There are seven major chakras that lie vertically at the central core of the human body. Each chakra correlate’s with certain organs, body systems and emotions. When your chakras are balanced, energy(life-force) is able to freely flow through your energetic system which leads to a greater sense of peace, happiness, and overall health and wellbeing. This way of viewing the body can seem unusual to some people, but the chakra system is actually an ancient way of understanding the body. The word chakra is from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel of light”.
What is the subtle energy body?
The subtle body, also known as the aura, is described by energy sensitive people as energetic layers, electromagnetic wavelengths, rates of vibration or patterns of pulsation that create an interconnected field of energy around the physical body. Some people or healers can see the energetic layers and others can feel the energetic layers, or both. Each energetic layer connects to the physical body through a chakra, which then directs the energy into the physical body. The subtle body provides information that is beneficial for understanding how to help a person heal.
What is the nervous system?
The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs, and all of the nerves that connect these organs with the rest of the body. Together, these organs are responsible for the control of the body and communication among its parts. It consists of two main parts, the central nervous system(CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS). Within the PNS is the autonomic nervous system(ANS) and the somatic nervous system(SNS). The ANS acts as a control system, maintaining balance in the body, regulating all life sustaining functions that you don't have to think about. The SNS is often called the ‘fight or flight’ nervous system because the SNS prepares the body to fight or run from danger. The nervous system is the most important system in our body because it’s what makes us human. It allows us to feel, think, act, live, love and regulates every process in the body.
Anxiety and Stress...
Anxiety and stress are rampant in today's modern world, especially in the USA. We have very busy lifestyles with many demands from work and relationships. Stress is a normal part of living and a lot of times it can help motivate us to get things done. Ideally we want to experience it in small amounts for short periods of time, not constantly live in emergency mode or 'fight or flight'. When it becomes a 'normal' part of your life is when it's really time to take a good look at what needs to be changed or modified, so you can relieve or diminish your symptoms of stress and/or anxiety and live a happy, healthy and vibrant life.
