The chances are you probably have heard of these before. You know that feeling where you think to yourself "Man, I just feel off today!" or "I don't feel aligned with myself, I can't explain it."
Well, most of us hear about the chakras and how they align every single one of us.
It is science, bro.
If you read my personal chakra healing journey and how it led me to finding my purpose, taking my power back in life, and WHERE I AM TODAY. Ya know, singing, dancing, painting, and making it a career. I want to break it down for you all and send the help that I had to spend weeks on the internet figuring out how to ALIGN MY DAMN SELF.
History of Chakras:
What are CHAKRAS? The word’s definition is “wheel of light” or in English it means “living my best life”. This word appeared first in Hindu texts many 1000's of years ago. Now in present day the wisdom of chakra healing has made it into tons of religions, philosophies of life, and lots of eastern and western medicine. But just like myself, you might have first heard this word when your chakras were all over the damn place and out of alignment. I’m here to break it down for you and let you know you don’t have to be a yogi or buy crystals to align your chakras and fix your energy.
Let’s talk about energy:
I’ll start with the basics of energy. We all have physical bodies that have their own energetic bodies too (yup). Our energetic bodies are fields of electromagnetic energy that surround and permeate us. Some say this is how we step into the physical world and the realm of where energy and radio waves all come together. In our bodies these energetic bodies are connected to each other via spiraling energies that are the chakras. When our chakras are aligned, the energy vibrates at a higher frequency than solid matter that’s affected by sound, light, and other externalities. When your chakras are aligned, they create a shortcut to healing your illnesses, relieving stress, and other physical deficits you may experience on the day-to-day.
So, if our chakras are “Gucci” or good, we will be to. Our energy system is really like an energetic subway system; if we can keep our main energetic ports operating as they should be, then the energy can flow through us freely and not leave us feeling discombobulated.
