There are major and minor chakra centers (similar to the energy meridian lines in Chinese Medicine) located throughout the entire human body and they are receptor sites for energy and they act as transducers and direct energy throughout the body. The energy of the environment naturally flows through the various layers of the auric field and crosses the boundary into the personal energy system.
When the energy enters the chakra it stimulates a bundle of nerves traveling to the corresponding organs of the body and the meridian system. The cells of the organ systems send messages to the endocrine system and stimulate the production of hormones directly affecting the emotions. Long term positive and negative emotions can cause dis-ease, the lack of harmony, within the human body. Healing happens when we allow the flow of emotions and become whole in the body, mind, emotion and spirit.
