Healing through the chakras....

This post is on request from my dearest friend, Geetali Tare.
She had a few questions like what are chakras, function and purpose of chakras, obstacles to the chakras etc.
So, where do I start from……
All we have to do is google the word, chakra and huge amount of information on chakras is available. There can be a beginning in ‘knowing’ the chakras but no end; it’s like diving into the deep sea. There is so much to know and understand. I would rather like to share my perceptions and feelings about the chakras.
As the name indicates, it is a wheel. I call it the wheel of energy flow. They are like turbines in our system, which blend the Universal vital life energy into our endocrine system for our continuous and smooth performance at the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual levels.
I have seen the chakras look like the orbits of the planetary system, reflecting the macrocosmic mystery of the movement. They all move in the anti-clockwise movement. So do our chakras.

Our system is made up of 72000 nadis and chakras, including all the major and minor chakras.
The 9 major chakras are the ones I scan when I heal. Every chakra has its own qualities and specific role; each has a different story to tell about a person. The chakras combined with the Aura of a person help the healer to locate the blocks as well as the causes of the dis-ease.
The aura is the energy or magnetic field emanating from every individual. It comprises of 7 levels of consciousness or etheric energy layers, which are the etheric body, emotional body, mental body, spiritual body, past mental body, past emotional body, past physical body. The last three layers contain the past life memories and healers can tap into these for healing purpose.

The movement of the chakras gets affected by any block, imbalance, trauma, shocks, fears, past lives’ unresolved issues etc; at these etheric layers. The vital life energy is deflected, stuck or their movements become sluggish and dense, which are manifested in physical symptoms of dis-ease.

So what does a Reiki healer do to ‘heal’ with the help of chakra movements? As a channel we allow energy to pass through us to the person. Our systems are quite capable of self-healing and allowing more energy simply improves this ability. Channeling Reiki into a person’s aura and chakras removes the blocks and enables a free, smooth, swift and clear flow of energies. All the elements of fire, earth, water and air blend into each other in a beautiful balanced way; dancing with joy and rhythm of life.
In my experience of various healings I have come to the conclusion that we all have to resolve all our issues at a spiritual level as a block at this level percolates to the other levels, finally getting manifested at the physical level. Whether we do it consciously or not we all are on a journey of spiritual growth. The ones who have chosen to learn spiritual lessons from all the experiences are enjoying the journey in their knowingness……….
