If you are experiencing emotional upset or illness, you are likely suffering from an energy imbalance. Within the energetic body are dense areas of energy called Chakras - vortexes that help to channel energy or prana around the body. Each Chakra spins in a clockwise direction and vibrates at a different frequency; each represents a different emotion, organ, color, sense and elements.The unbalance in your energy flows can be related to issues going back as far as your childhood. Many yogis believe that these energy pathways can only be unblocked by addressing the underlying issues that caused the imbalance. Meditation is an important tool in recognizing and resolving these life issues. Practicing yoga helps to balance the chakras, which in turn creates a positive effect on our entire well being. When our Chakras are not resonating at the correct frequency an imbalance can occur. This may present itself in the physical body as an illness, injury, insomnia or a restless mind.
