What are Chakras?
The word ‘chakra’ comes from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘Wheel. Perhaps a better translation would be ‘spinning vortex’. It is said that 7 primary chakras run up the spine. The pathway through the chakras is sometimes referred to as the rainbow bridge. Connecting the physical body with mind and spirit. Each chakra is said to have a physiological component, as well as an energetic and emotional part.
Chakras, Mantra and Meditation:
There are various ways to focus the mind, and a traditional technique is using breathing techniques. Another option to help focus the mind is through sound. The repetition of simple sounds (mantra) can help bring focus and clarity to the mind. Soothing sounds help bring calmness and focus.
Sound syllables are known as Bija Mantra, these are simple chants and easy to pronounce. The repetition of these mantras can help to bring a sense of stillness and inner awareness. Each of the 7 key chakras is associated with a specific seed sound (Bija Mantra). You will learn each mantra as well as the meaning behind the sound and each chakra.
