Chakra Energy


What Are Chakras?

The word ‘Chakra’ is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel.’ Chakras are energy centers in the human body that align with distinct nerve bundles and organs, and vibrate or spin to keep the Mind, Body, and Spirit in a state of health. One or more blocked chakras means the life force energy cannot flow properly, resulting in an imbalance.

There are 7 main Chakras that run in a straight line from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each Chakra corresponds to a different energy wavelength on the color spectrum, from red light at the base to purple light at the forehead, and clear white light at the top.

The goal of Chakra integration is to determine which Chakra may be out of balance or most activated during a Dynamic Tarot reading, so the Journeyer can begin to focus on that aspect of the Shadow that needs healing.
