What are the Chakras?
Chakras are swirling vortices of energy emanating from the Etheric Body and are aligned along our spine. There are minor Chakras in our arms and legs and, above and below the physical body. There are 7 major chakras on the body and they act as filters between the physical and energetic/spiritual realms. The spin of the Chakras is related to the energy within the body. If the body is out of balance, whether physically, mentally, or emotionally, the Chakras first begin to spin erratically. If they remain out of balance, blockages start to occur. Sometimes the Chakras become so blocked they stop spinning altogether. The condition of the Chakras is projected into the Aura and if not cleared and cleansed, the Aura becomes fogged, mis-shapen or torn. When the Chakras are out of balance, we manifest this by becoming sick. If the imbalance continues, and the Aura is also damaged, serious dis-ease occurs.
What is the Aura?
The Aura is actually made up of several layers which surround our physical body like an ever expanding template - like an electromagnetic field. Although there are layers and each layer has a colour, the Aura actually swirls gently around us like a rainbow mist, all the time. It is never static. The Aura is said to emanate from the Divine, or Source, where we exist as a Being of Pure Light. To exist on this physical plane, our Higher Self projects the Aura in gradually increasing density or vibration, until we can manifest in our physical body. We need the density of the physical body to exist on this earthly plane. When both Chakras and Aura are in perfect balance, we are able to re-connect with Source and open up to the higher vibrations.
The Etheric Body
The Etheric is the subtle body closest to the physical. It is the most important body as the Chakras actually emanate from the Etheric. Together they act as filters, transmitters and receivers of all vibrations to and from the physical body and Source. When the body or the emotions receive a profound shock, the Etheric can be pushed completely out of alignment, usually to the left, and this can result in very serious illness. Quite often, those with Etheric displacement will constantly trip, fall and stumble and mostly any injury will be to the right side of their body, as this is left unprotected when the Etheric is displaced.
