We humans are made up of more than just our physical bodies. We have an etheric (physical) body, an emotional body, a mental body, and a spiritual (astral) body. These different bodies, or levels, are often referred to as your aura or auric fields. Things don’t just affect us physically. We are affected on these multiple levels. When we have thoughts and feelings, these non-solid forms of energy go out into our multi-system body and greatly affect us.
We all have centers in our bodies that store energy and energy patterns. These centers are called chakras. We can have energy patterns stored from events that happened yesterday and from many years ago. Some of these patterns will be positive while others will be negative. Sometimes we store these patterns deep into our chakras and in our auras (the energy field around us). Dis-ease is a manifestation of unbalanced energy.
The healing traditions of many cultures emphasize the importance of subtle energy systems that flow through and around the human body, affecting its health and vitality. Many of these traditions stress that balancing these energy fields can assist the body, mind and spirit in moving towards and maintaining wellness.Healing is a way of balancing energy. Any techniques we find that enable us to let go of these negative patterns will help to move us toward peace and happiness.
