Chakras are energy centers in the subtle body. They are best described in visual terms as spirals through which multidimensional, ethereal and astral energies can be transferred into the dense mass of the human body.
These higher vibrational forces are able to enter and affect the human consciousness as they serve rather like transformers. These transformers are able to translate these higher frequencies and put them into biological manifestations via our endocrine and nervous systems.
Working with subtle body energy has the potential to transform physical illness, bring about balance and harmony in the entire organism and lead us from dis-ease to ease.
