Our soul’s luminous energy body connects to our physical body through seven major funnel-like vortexes of energy called Charkas. The word ‘Chakra’ comes from Sanskrit that dates back to as early as 1500 BC. It translates as “wheel”, or “disk” or “turning”.
Each Chakra is associated with particular parts of the body and a gland. They transfer prana (vital life force energy) throughout the body to nourish the physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. When the chakras are clear, energy is flowing freely and a sense of physical wellbeing is achieved. Unresolved emotions such as conflict, loss, fear, anxiety and stress and other emotional traumas can create energetic blockages in the Chakras. These blockages disrupt the harmonious flow of energy and can eventually cause disease, as well as emotional and mental disorders in the physical body.
Energy clearing restores the balance and harmonious flow of the Chakra system as well as the entire body’s energy system, re-informing our mental, emotional and physical aspects. It consists of:
- chakra clearing and balancing;
- intrusive energy removal; and,
- energy body restoration.
