Chakras are energy centres in our aura which can both collect negative energy blockages and assist in healing. There are 7 main chakras in the aura and each one is responsible for different sphere of our life. If you find out how they work, you can receive an amazing gift from nature which is the ability to heal own body. With the development of these skills, you can also help your friends, relatives and other people.
As for me, I am also a practitioner of Reiki and I would like to admit that it is essential to learn it from a master before starting to heal other people. Each person has its karma and it is essential to understand when you can heal a person and when you do not have such a right.
If you are interested in the work of chakras and want to find more information about self-healing, I recommend you read a book by Margarita Alcantara. She is a famous acupuncturist and a master of Reiki.
The book “Chakra Healing: A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Healing Techniques that Balance the Chakras” will help you to understand how it works. While reading it, you will find out how to discover an affected chakra and identify your way of healing. You can choose from the array of therapeutic methods such as meditation, chrystals, yoga, essential oils etc.
