Chakras and Religion : I knew one day I would be encouraged to clear the air up on chakras and how they relate to a specific religion or if there is even a relation at all. Spirituality and religion are not the same, However, most will think they are, I’m going to break it down real simple for you. Spirituality is the experience of one’s own spiritual journey, Where religion is living or learning someone else’s spiritual journey the word religion means to yoLk back and do what your ancestors did.
Religion is based on hearsay and I say this because for instance the book of JOhn was written by John it is his perception of His spiritual experience no third party to give any credibility of any events that truly happened its just his word that must be taken (but that’s another blog.) Okay, now it’s story time so what brought me to write this blog?
Well as most of you know or have figured out by now I am a Reiki Master Teacher or energy therapist as some might say, anyway I came up with this beautiful commercial idea but it required a Digital Graphic Designer, I bet you can guess where I went, you guessed it, Instagram.
Chakras and Religion
Now I found this page which belongs to a woman it had all this beautiful esoteric digital graphic art on it so i reached out. We talked I explained what I do and the details of the commercial and where I would need her services she gave a price and that was that.
Now, one day later I get a text from this oh so lovely lady and it read ” hi after reading about the chakras I can no longer be apart of the project because I am Christian sorry and bye”. I was like “man what the hell?” but okay it took me a minute I wasn’t gone reply but you guys know I couldn’t help but indulge only because I have never heard such nonsense.
So I replied not in a mean way but more of an informational way because the truth is chakras are no way connected to any particular religion but they are of the spiritual body that every human possesses and directly connected to each organ system. Without this energy system, the body would be a CORPS!
yes, you heard me you would be DEAD. Now, this system is where the life force energy moves about and transmits emotional, spiritual and physical information, it controls the power of thought as well as the power of being. I don’t care what your religious beliefs are the chakras system has nothing to do with what god you choose to serve.
I really liked her work but one thing for sure is there are no mistakes and she was not meant to be apart of my project. Oh well, my message to all who read this and any of my blogs research, research, research I’m just saying most don’t even know their own blood type or much about the body they carry with them every day since birth.
There are 7 primary chakras that lie all along the spine from the base to the crown of the head. Associated with each chakra are the primary nerve junctions and organs of that region. Furthermore, each chakra is responsible for certain traits and characteristics that make up our personality.
When we strengthen and rejuvenate the nerves and organs in a particular region, we are in fact activating these energy centers that reside there and are thus working on ourselves not only at a physical level but also at an emotional and mental level (by affecting our traits and characteristics). Practiced over time, the chakras become charged and come into balance with each other, bringing us into a physical, emotional and mental well-being.
Again, it should be noted that the work being done is primarily about dissolving granthis (blockages) in these regions which introduce disease and imbalance into the system by preventing the chakras from functioning at their optimum level. Finally, we see how this relates to Kundalini Shakti.
The state of the chakras influences all of our organs, the skeleton, and the hormonal, digestive, circulatory, and nervous system–in short, the entire organism.
Chakra teaching asserts that behind every ailment lies a problem with the level or flow of energy and that this leads to a disturbance in the body’s equilibrium.
Holistic healing approaches such as chakra-oriented therapy are not directed toward relieving illness– although that may be the initial reason we turn to them. For true healing to take place, the deeper reason for sickness must be addressed. The healing process entails not only the elevation of symptoms but an inner freeing, a maturation that re-establishes a healthy equilibrium.
As we know from the study of psychosomatic disorders, such complaints as stomach troubles, asthma, and high blood pressure are often connected to emotional conflicts. We are more susceptible to colds when we are stressed, and anyone who is prone to allergies knows that they become aggravated when we are tense and irritable.
When our spiritual growth is hindered and the energy transmitted by the chakras does not flow freely, it burdens our spirits, our minds, and ultimately our bodies. The basic problem is that energy is not circulating like it should be, and as a result, the relationship with our higher self is lost.
To arrive at the true causes of our physical complaints, it is helpful to consider the different areas of the body that are governed by each of the chakras.
By considering why you suffer from a particular illness, you can gain valuable insight. The concern with deeper causes of ill health always leads to increased self-awareness.
