This is the first part of an on-going series on Chakras that I just decided to do today because an overwhelming feeling of hate took hold of me and I had to do an emergency chakra cleanse. It was during the cleanse that I decided to do this post.
I've been cleansing my chakras on and off for about 2 months now with the aid of Doreen Virtue's Chakra Cleansing Book and CD and while her voice is pretty creepy it has helped me get in touch with my inner self (minds out of the gutter!)
I know what you're thinking. What the hell is a chakra (no it is not one of Elephant man's dances) and why would I spend good money on a book and CD when the internet is swimming with free information??
Believe me when I tell you that I'm a born sceptic but the thing is, I've been cultivating an interest in chakras for a good while now. I've done the internet research, I read the oppositions as well as the praise and one day I just decided that the only way to truly check if it works is to try it out. I bought the CD and book because I wanted to have the information handy whenever and wherever I needed it.
That being said, what I'm going to do here is kind of walk you through the steps that I took to get me to this point.
First off, What the hell is a chakra?
Chakra is a Sanskrit word which means circle of energy, wheel of energy, spinning vortex of energy or energetic centre. [See symbol above]
Our Seven Chakras
The video below gives a concise explanation of the colours and the main functions of our chakras.
After understanding what chakras were all about I then decided to do a Chakra Test to see if my chakras needed balancing. [Click Here to do your own Chakra Test]. Of course, as suspected my sacral and throat chakras were large and my root and heart chakras were shrunken. (keep all comments to yourself :oP). That's when I decided on some DIY Chakra meditation @ home.
Stay tuned for my next posts where I give detailed information on each chakra, some DIY chakra balancing meditation as well as the progress of my chakra cleansing.
I hope this information was as useful to you as it is to me.
