I’d really love to share with you what I know about Chakras and how to work with them to improve your human experience, but before I can get into chakras, I feel it’s important we discuss energy. Once you understand your energy, you’ll understand how to influence it, mold it, improve it… all the things you do when working with chakras.
What I have learned, experienced, and come to strongly agree with is that everything in the universe is made of the Divine Power’s energy.
Long before modern technology and science, ancient cultures knew that “God was within all of us”. Some call this energy Spirit, Chi, Ashe, Shakti, etc. It’s the fundamental life force that flows through all and everything – not just living beings.
But aren’t we made of atoms? Yes, we are! According to quantum physics, as you go deeper and deeper into the workings of the atom, you learn that it’s made of nothing but energy. If every cell in our body is made of atoms, and each cell carries 1.4 volts of energy, the cells in our bodies combined, total a voltage of 700 trillion volts of energy in our bodies. And that is what we refer to life force energy!
Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. – Arjun Walia
All things are made of atoms and therefore energy. Us, your pet, the lemon you call a car, even the rooms in our homes and our favorite park. At their core levels, there are made of atoms, which are made of energy.
Each of these atoms vibrate at varying frequencies. When you’re sad, your energy (Spirit/Chi/Ashe/Shakti) vibrates at a lower frequency. It feels denser. You feel heavy. Vibrating at a lower frequency, you feel less of the Divine’s energy. When you’re happy, your energy vibrates at a higher frequency so it feels lighter and brings you closer to the frequency of the Divine’s energy.
Just as the sun – a glowing sphere of hot gas which is also a form of energy – emits waves of energy, so do we.
Those waves of energy that we emit carry our thoughts, feeling, and intentions. If we’re sad or depressed or just mopping, we’re sending out waves of low-frequency energy. These waves of low energy can interact with the energy of those around you and lessen the frequency of their vibration.
Ever notice how being around happy people makes you feel happier? Those who are feeling happy are emitting energy waves vibrating at high frequencies. When those waves collide with your energy, it raises the frequency that your energy is vibrating at.
Now, on a scale from sad to happy, we have low and high frequencies, less Divine energy to more Divine energy. You’ll notice, whether high or low, there is still Divine energy there.
You may now be asking yourself, where does negative energy fit in?
As you have noticed, I state energy as low to high, not negative to positive. This is because energy is energy. It’s not negative or positive. It’s your thoughts and intentions that can be determined as either negative or positive. When you add your thoughts/intentions to the energy, that’s when you give the energy either a negative or positive charge. So if I have nothing but pure love for you, when I think of you, I’m sending positive waves of energy your way because I’m focusing my energy on you with positive thoughts. This is what causes people to feel loved. It took my husband 3 years to say he loved me. Three years after we were married. But I accepted his proposal knowing that he did love me because he made me feel loved. Those waves of energy flowing from him made me feel happy and warm and secure.
Guess what happens when I can’t stand you… and you tick me off. I think of you, in a negative way and since I’m thinking of you, I’m sending out waves of energy to you that are tainted with negative thoughts.
You can feel this. Things of beauty and harmony hold great love and are able to create joy. Things that are hurtful and nasty create unhappiness and pain. They are lacking love.
And here is where chakras come in.
There are 7 major vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating at different frequencies, within us, known as chakras. Because they vibrate at different frequencies, their energy waves affect different parts of our bodies and lives.
Our chakras are continuously sending out and absorbing waves of energy, all the time. It’s through these chakras that we send waves of love, healing, and joy to others. It’s also how we attract and manifest both good and bad things in our lives. If you send out waves of gratitude, you attract more to be grateful for. If you send out waves of desperation, you’ll attract more reasons to feel desperate. If any of your chakras absorb energy tainted with negative intentions, that chakra can become misaligned/unbalanced which causes issues, big and small, to show up in your life.
You can cleanse and heal these chakras through multiple techniques which I plan to share with you here on ZenAtma in future articles. One of the easier techniques is meditation and when meditation seems difficult to do, you can give yourself a good spiritual cleansing. Also, do you remember that I mentioned earlier that everything is made of atoms, therefore energy? If your favorite room at home or your lemon of a car is making you feel uncomfortable, it’s energy may need a spiritual cleansing too.
