I learned all about the chakras while attending massage school. In that environment, I was taught that they are energy centers that can suffer imbalances and such and are each related to a basic emotion/action in Eastern medicine.

It is a concept native to Hinduism, and yes, it involves much meditation. It is not a part of something *bigger* necessarily, it is more a way to explore and stabilize your inner emotions and energies so that they can ‘flow’ clear. Most people have too much anger, too much love (yes, it is possible), too much something, or too little something, and so they are not complete.

Chakras are linked to eastern traditional medicine. A wonderful resource book is, ‘Chakras Healing.’ One spirit has a copy with instructions on usage. Also, ‘The Subtle Body.’ Also from One Spirit Book Club and Barrnes and Noble has them too.

Chakras deal with infinite energies and is a method of healing. Meditation is sometimes included…as is Crystal Healing.

Blessed Be!

It’s either a part of reality or not. What does religion, philosophy, or something bigger have to with it?
