The spine and the human energy field contain chakras, or energy centers, that vibrate at different frequencies. Each chakra presents us with the opportunity to establish a root relationship and to satisfy a deep soul desire. Each frequency holds the gift of a certain power, which enhances our human experience on Planet Earth. As we tune into this power, we are internally empowered to deal with the specific life challenges of that energy center or chakra and as a consequence to live more whole, meaningful and fulfilling lives. They govern us physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically. The chakras have different levels of activity. When they are open they are considered to be operating normally. Ideally, all chakras would contribute to our being. Our instincts would work together with our feelings and thinking. However, this is usually not the case. Some chakras are not open enough, and to compensate, other chakras are over-active. What everyone should strive for is the chakras to be balanced.
There exist lots of techniques to balance the chakras. Mostly techniques to open the chakras are used. It’s not wise to make over active chakras less active, as they are compensating for other chakras. To restore the compensation they’d be over-active again pretty quickly. To stop them from compensating, the chakras that are under-active must be opened.
