If you are interested in energy healing, you may want to learn about sensing chakras so as to have more information about them during a healing.
Chakras are energy centers, or portals, in a person's energy field. Located along the central channel of the body from the base of the spine to the top of the head, they are conceived of as whirling, wheel-like vortexes through which universal/cosmic energy flows into and out of a person.
There are seven major energy centers, plus many minor ones. (My own form of energy work, Restorative Touch, posits an eighth.) Each corresponds to specific glands, organs, and facets of your being.
Disturbances in a chakra's flow of the energy can result in disturbances in a person’s health, emotions, mind, spirit, or life, so many energy healers work with the chakras.
So how do you go about sensing chakras?
Sensing chakras is probably easier on another person, rather than starting on yourself.
