There are seven energy centers located in the body that are called chakras. They are vertically aligned in the body beginning at the base of the spine and the seventh chakra is at the top of the head. Each of these energy centers has a specific purpose in our lives and to support each of us properly, they need to be cleared of any blockages. The blockages may be cleared by the work we do at Earth Release or they may also be cleared by focused breathing techniques.
The majority of people who call us for clearings have several chakras blocked and very few have all seven chakras open. In addition, many people who have serious abundance issues have blockages in their lower chakras. The lower chakras support an individual's survival issues including their abundance, work, sexuality, personal power etc. Many people with relationship issues have blockages in their heart chakra and individuals who have difficulty speaking "their truth" often have blockages in their throat chakras. The upper two chakras are directly related to intuition and spirituality and blockages at those areas often diminish or "shut down" a person's inner guidance.
There are many wonderful books available that will explain the chakras in great detail such as Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss, Ph.D. or Vibrational Medicine by Richard Gerber, M.D.
Our purpose here is to reiterate the point that opening your chakras and keeping them open is VERY IMPORTANT and should not be underestimated. There are many wonderful breathing techniques that may be used to support your chakra attunement work and they will be included in my next blog.
