Chakras are energy vortexes or portals in the body.
Most people can’t see them, but you easily sense if they are open, or closed, and if you meditate on them, you can notice that they are swirling in one direction or another, and you will probably be able to open or expand the swirl of your chakra, in meditation.
Thus, if you notice a chakra that is closed very tight, blocked or still, you can unlock it and allow it to swirl in a circle of energy, and even to expand to a size that is as big or bigger than your body.
Energy healers, such as hands healers, also work in this way, using the energy that comes from their hands, or the way that they use their intention, to unblock or open your chakras.
If you are feeling kind of yucky or sad or sub-par, it is a great idea to check your chakras. Just go up from the first or root chakra, to your second chakra in your reproductive system, to your third chakra in your solar plexus, to your fourth chakra which is your heart, to your fifth chakra which is your throat, to your sixth chakra which is your third eye, to your seventh chakra which is at the crown of your head.
Just notice what the energy feels like in each area. If it’s tight, small, locked, imagine or meditate on this chakra until you have the sense that is swirled open.
