By Chakra one understands something like an energy wheel, a centre for energy of life. Every human possesses seven main Chakras, which all stand in relationship to each other. The chakras start at the basis of the spinal column with the basis-chakra, and end in the midst of the head vertex with the vertex-chakra

chinesische-medizin-chakraWithin a Chakra, energy is taken in, processed and finally distributed further. This energy moves cyclically in clockwise direction and rotates at different speeds depending on the Chakra. The speed of the Chakra increases step by step from the first to the last one. 

Each Chakra has a particular size and color, which are however distinct depending upon physical and emotional condition. The original color of a Chakra changes during a longer period of time and is accordingly in its distinctiveness of color an indicator of the own manifested psychological or physical condition. Thanks to his chakras, the human radiates a colored aura that can be seen by particularly spiritual humans, thus enabling another human to observe and analyze the body and the interior and the world of feeling and thought of a human being from the outside. 

Chakras are not enclosed in our bodies; instead they float a little over a certain position of the physical body.  They are located near our central nervous system and stand in relationship to certain organs of the body. 

The task of the Chakras is mainly to take in fine-fabric oscillations from outside and to convert them into energies within the physical body. These energies are life energies that are distributed in and outside of the body into different directions by means of energy paths, so-called meridians. 

The flow of the life energy depends on the relationship between the single Chakras and the respective state of a Chakra. If there are blockades in energy flow, then the life energy cannot flow unhindered from Chakra to Chakra and through the meridians. These blockades of energy can often be sensed by the hands as holes, appearing differently in size. 

chinesische-medizin-chakraThe symptoms that arise from disturbed Chakras are not to be underestimated, because they can affect body, mind and soul and can manifest themselves within them. Only too often, feelings remain suppressed and opinions not expressed. However, thereby the natural flow of energy within and between the Chakras gets heavily disturbed and the development of the energy centers is substantially hindered. 

Chakren sind auch Verbindungspunkte, über die Energie von einem Körper zum anderen weitergegeben oder aufgenommen werden kann, je nachdem wie offen sie sind.

Chakras are also interconnected points, over which energy can be transmitted and absorbed from one body to the other, depending on how open they are. 

The aim is to preserve the energy points and to absorb only positive energy. Negative energy can be transmitted very fast to the own body from one person to another, and similarly positive energy can be taken away. That has to be prevented, in order to ensure the own health.

Everyone knows the aggressive, irritated and exhausted feeling that one brings along at home after having spent whole of the day at an overcrowded place. One is constantly bombarded by emotions and if the energy centres are unprotected, the body cannot do than to take in the whole emotional dirt.

Chakras and meridians cannot be detected medically, and only everyone on its own can, if he concentrates on it in a balanced state of mind, feel the energy. 

If one is always looking for a medical explanation and a chemical medicine that is suitable for his disease or for his prevailing negative mood, then one should rather avoid dealing with the teaching of Chakras. The healing, many are striving for, is reachable at every time, because it lies in nature, in universe and especially in everyone’s self.
