Reiki and The Chakras
This spiritual healing practice involves engagement of the wheels of energy or vortexes circling within and about you, known as chakras.
These spirals of light and motion are invisible to the naked eye (of course there are exceptions), much like the aura.
Your friend Google has lots of fascinating research for you, such as this site from which I borrowed the graphic image. It should be easier to read on its original page.
Seven of the major chakras are linked to our body organs. The more powerfully they spin, the more powerful yet subtle stimuli is released to the body’s metabolism. Here are the connections:
1st ROOT ovaries/testes; legs, feet, bones, large intestines
2nd SACRAL/GENERAL spleen/adrenals; womb, genitals, kidney, bladder
3rd SOLAR PLEXUS liver/pancreas; digestive system, gall bladder
4th HEART thymus/heart; lungs, circulation, arms, hands
5th THROAT thyroid gland; throat, ears, mouth, neck and shoulders
6th BROW/3RD EYE pituitary gland, the brain; eyes, brows, base of skull
7th CROWN pineal gland, central nervous system, cerebral cortex
Here is a breathing exercise to stimulate the chakras and rejuvenate the inner organs:
* Beginning at the 3rd eye, start breathing slowly into the chakra.
* Release the breath slowly and through the mouth, but visualize the breath being released into the throat charka.
* Breathe while visualizing the breath going into the throat chakra, then release the breath into the the next lower chakra, the heart.
* Continue all the way down through each vortex, then go UP the spine (your back), doing the same thing. Work up to seven rounds.
This is one of many exercises that will be taught in the REIKI class on Oct. 22, 23.
Many of you have asked about which oils should be used for which chakras. The “should” is the problem! You may use what you have with your own healing hands and healing intention.
Here’s a starting list of oils AND spices, and I’m limiting each to just the top four that I can attest to based on my own experience.
Be assured there are many more and you may chat with me to get more information and/or respond on Facebook.com/healmobile
