Chakras are spiritual energy centers located in our spiritual bodies that channels Universal Life force Energy or Qi/Ki both (In and Out) of our physical and spiritual selves. They are considered both transmitters and receivers of energy. Meridians are energy paths in the body in which Qi/Ki flows through. The idea with both is that one must have balanced Chakras and Meridians in order to be physically, emotionally, mentally and spirituality healthy. A body can get problems in different areas with blockage or instability in any one of the four above areas.
Chakras, Meridians and Nadis
The seven main Chakras are located at various points along the spine. They correlate with various Meridian points flowing along the spine. There are 12 main meridians 6 are yin and 6 are yang. Reiki channelizes the Qi/Ki life force energy through both the Chakras and Meridians. The idea is that the energy travels through ‘Nadis’, which is a Sanskrit word for blood vessel. They are located in the Meridian pathways, which are a network of psychic nerves where the energy spirals in an ascending or descending fashion.
Chakras (Sanskrit word for wheel) are Energy points that vibrate and turn to channel energy into the body and Meridians. Meridian channels follow the same path that the autonomic nervous system does along the spine. This is also where the Chakras receive and transmit the Universal Energy into and from the body.
The body is made up of many chakras that parallel the Meridian paths flowing through the body. The seven main Chakras are connected by three major Nadis located parallel one another. The degree of Chakra and Meridian activity in a person’s body is dependent on the person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of health.
If a Chakra is damaged or blocked, it hampers the flow of Qi/Ki that is channelized into the body through the Meridians. If the Meridians have blockage or low Qi/Ki flow, one cannot be in an optimum healthy state of being. When the Qi/Ki flow is not free flowing and healthy, there is a condition of imbalance in one of the four aspects in the state of being healthy. Balance is maintained when the flow of Qi/Ki is free and strong. When it is weak or blocked; illness and imbalances occur. This is when we find unhealthiness in mind, body or spirit because of a blockage into one of these two areas.
