My first query was, ‘What are chakras?’ This word is derived from Sanskrit and means wheel. Those who work with chakras are able to see each primary chakra as a spinning vortex or wheel of energy. This energy is spinning inward from the front of the body towards the center point of that chakra and then spins outward from that same point from your back.
Chakras start at the base of the spine and go up through the head on the kunilini which is located almost on your spinal column. The kunilini is shaped like a staff and some people have thought that the twenty-third psalm of the bible is speaking of the kunilini. Almost all religions believe in the spiritual and energy power points within the human body and these specific points are called chakras.
There are seven primary chakra points with about a hundred smaller secondary chakras. Each chakra relates to a specific part of the body, specific emotions, mental, and spiritual concerns. Each chakra has a different frequency of vibration, color, sound, and symbol that it relates to. Each needs to be balanced, clear, and properly spinning.
When a chakra becomes unbalanced or blocked you will experience some kind of illness. We are given intuition all the time about what we should do or how we should live but we often ignore the words from the spirit. When we don’t listen to our inner selves the chakras become out of balance and manifest an energy imbalance affecting our health in an adverse way. Effects we may experience with chakra blocks are depression, feeling out of touch, or like we lost something. You may be very tired, unable to think clearly, or become listless. You may be angry for no apparent reason, be afraid, and be negative.
When your chakras are in balance you will experience happiness and health. When the chakras are aligned and balanced the energy flows freely and we maintain a grounded connection to a higher spiritual communication.
That’s the basic understanding I gained about chakras from sitting down to discuss it with Brad and Amelia (names have been changed). Amelia is sick often with one thing or another. She has emotional problems and physical problems including spinal and bone problems, digestive disorder, headaches, and poor circulation.
When Brad met Amelia he felt a strong connection to her almost right away. Amelia started to feel the same magnetic pull between them after a few weeks of getting to know Brad. Brad and Amelia have many common bonds and within two years have become inseparable friends. Their friendship had blossomed into love and during heart-to-heart conversations they shared they both felt that they had come together for a bigger purpose.
After Amelia had a particularly stressful day and she and Brad had gone to bed, Amelia began to have excruciating abdominal pains that left her crying out in pain and doubled over. She was used to these stomach aches as she has experienced them occasionally for nearly 20 years. Brad tried to comfort Amelia and stroked her forehead lightly with his left hand. As Amelia began to relax and drift into a light, disturbed sleep, Brad left his hand on her forehead.
The next day Amelia hesitantly told Brad about the occurrence from the night before. She started by telling Brad that she didn’t want to sound weird and wasn’t sure that she hadn’t been in some kind of dream state but she needed to tell Brad about what she had felt. While Brad’s hand had been placed on her forehead Amelia’s stomach pains had slowly begun to subside. She had been able to stretch her legs back out and eventually her whole body began to relax. Her emotional state became calm and relaxed. She says she was not entirely awake but was not asleep either because she could sense everything that was happening to her. What she had seen visually was a sort of spinning whirl of sky blue sparkling lights. She felt surrounded by these small spinning lights.
Brad was astonished at what he was hearing. He had felt something too. He hadn’t seen any lights or colors but he had felt an unusual force within himself. He says it started at the base of his skull. It was an electric ball of sorts resting in that lower region of his head and it had eventually begun to move down his arm. It went out through the fingers that had rested on Amelia’s forehead. He had felt several of these electrical charges release. He had wanted to help Amelia. He couldn’t stand to see her in such pain.
Today Brad and Amelia are quite distracted by their daily environment and unable to explore to any great extent what it is that Brad can do for Amelia’s health. They continue to take time to practice this chakra healing. Amelia does not respond to this type of healing when she is fully awake. She needs to be asleep or nearly asleep for it to work. Brad has gained better control over the impulses. He can hold them in various locations as they move down their path. He can do more of them and sometimes they can become very strong. Amelia can not recollect any more visual sightings of lights when Brad has aided in healing. Many times she does get positive effects from his healing touch. Brad says Amelia jumps and/or her muscles twitch where he has contact with her when he releases an impulse. Afterward, she breathes a bit heavy and then returns to her normal state.
Amelia and Brad feel this is a very special connection that they share. They believe Brad is indeed a chakra healer and plan on exploring this spiritual link between them. Amelia is certainly pleased when she can get relief from years of aches and pains that until now had seemed impossible to get rest from. They are a unique and wonderful couple.
