Have you ever wondered what other things inhabit our body? Science mentions vitamins, minerals, blood, veins, organs and bones, but is that the only thing that inhabits our being? Within the spiritual plane we speak of the soul, energies or directly from the Chakras , each of them has different definitions and specific functions. In this case, what has attracted the most attention since remote times are the Chakras, energies concentrated as circuits throughout the body whose origin is quite interesting.
Let us then consider what the Chakras mean, what their origin is and the existing types.
It is important to point out that the general knowledge of the Chakras comes from Central Africa, right in Tanzania, where the study of yoga Tantra is carried out and the intrinsic connection of the mind with the body is established: Once the mind is dominated, one has control of the body, in this sense, we can understand that pain, anguish and illnesses would pass to a second plane. just after knowing perfectly the energies relative to the Chakras and the correct way to make them flow through all our anatomy.
Tanzania is home to the sacred mountain Mount Meru, where research and combinations of Egyptian and Indian traditions began. in its lower part and that it continues until it reaches the highest, the apex of our experiences, experiences and learnings throughout our lives. With Yoga Tantra not only knowledge of the Chakras is obtained through Indian and Egyptian traditions, but also astrological, Kundalini and astronomical traditions.
What defines the word Chakra?
In Sanskrit, the word Chakra means wheel. What does “rolling” have to do with Chakras? Well, the Chakras rotate in a kind of energetic disks that end up concentrating right on the spinal column and the central nervous system, in such a way that they extend throughout the anatomy of the human being. We can compare the Chakras as an infinite network that encompasses the whole body and turns according to the hands of the clock , as do the spiral arms of our galaxy.
All Chakras have a way of individualizing themselves with particular frequencies and colors that identify them, that is why it is said that there are different types of Chakras and these are identified according to the energies that emanate from humans. There are 7 Chakras in total, newborns are characterized by having Chakras with bright colors , can be red or violet, this tends to change with the passing of the years and the experiences that we have.
Each color is going to become more opaque than it once was, and that happens because of the deceptions, sorrows and strong strong experiences that have changed our way of looking at the world, all these leave a toxic trace in our being and in one way or another manage to transform our vision of life and leaves us more vulnerable, full of negative energy and too impulsive at a negative level.
When there are too many negative energies in our being, they immediately adhere to the Chakras, generate strong changes in them , for example, their pure frequency decreases and deteriorates the bright colors that characterize them, consequently, aging makes an act of presence and not only the physical, but also the mental and with the passage of time, diseases attack the organism . All this changes the moment we reconnect our mind with the body and completely detoxify them, only then will we enjoy excellent health and a long life.

Originally we speak of 6 Chakras distributed in the human body, each of them fulfils specific functions:
Chakra de la raíz: We can find it in the spine, right between the anus and the genitals.

The heart : We can place it in the center of the chest.
La garganta: Its location is in the throat.

Recommended cleanings to activate the Chakras
This type of cleansing is usually done when the person is on the verge of death or simply when the disease has reached its peak. It should be noted that not all Chakras can be cleaned at the same time, if it is possible to purify several of them in a session , but that is a fairly long work, requires patience and much dedication so that the results are as expected. It is recommended to work with two Chakras per session.
There is no need to worry about the negative energies that usually adhere to the person who performs the cleaning, that toxicity is incinerated, so that after cleaning, all the negative becomes light and will be part of the universe again. Hatred, resentment, anger, resentment and all those negative thoughts that most of us experience are far from being superficial., that’s why cleanliness is energetic, because the Chakras are powerful energies that take away or regulate everything bad from us.
How can we open the Chakras?
To be able to open the Chakras we must be aware that humanity is part of the whole, it is neither more nor less than the creation of the universe and neither can we limit ourselves to accept that this universe is the only existing one. Taking this into account, once your Chakras are opened you will have full knowledge of the universe and from then on you’ll have to maintain a prolonged balance in your life. The human being is characterized by doubting even himself, this is due to their bad experiences and each of them hinder the Chakras, for that there is Yoga.

At the beginning it will be difficult to learn and stabilize the postures, but with time and practice this task is perfected.
To open the Chakras you need colors, vibrations, concentration, mantras, stones, essential oils and even the help of a therapist if that is what you want. First of all, you must take into account the positions, which vary according to the Chakra you are going to activate. You must concentrate on the location of the Chakra, in its functions and why you want it to be an active part of your life from now on, after that, meditation and repetition of the mantras is fundamental.
Most positions for opening the Chakras are based on sitting with your feet crossed in a lotus shape, with your hands above your knees and your middle fingers and thumb touching each other. Another way is to sit on your heels crossing your fingers without your thumbs on the inside. Concentration is your best ally when activating the Chakras., so try to be in a place connected with nature but which, in turn, is silent, can be your garden.
