a which chakra are you type of quiz popped on my facebook and i took it…i know about the different levels and that they can be either open or closed and what each level represents…but what is it apart of a religion? philosophy? is it apart of something bigger? i have a feeling its a form of meditation but im not sure…if it is does it help at all? and where did this idea come from?
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.
