The word Chakra comes from an ancient Indian language known as Sanskrit meaning; vortex, spinning wheel or circle. Chakra’s are the major centers of spiritual power in the human body and are circles of energy, which balance, store and distribute the energies of life. Throughout time practitioners of many cultures have accessed these energy vortexes as the cause of dis-ease.
Imagine charkas as circles of energy, flowing all the way through our body, these circles of energy assist in running our body, mind and soul. If these charkas are not performing correctly or blocked, this could cause our physical body, mental and emotional health, along with our spiritual selves to suffer.
There are seven main Chakra’s, located up the spinal column, combined these compose of your consciousness and your energy system.
Each of your Chakra’s has its own unique purpose, each controlling a specific aspect of your life. Each Chakra is associated with different parts of our body and mind and they need to spin totally in balance to feel good. The Chakra’s absorb energy that comes from our thoughts, feelings and outside environment and feed this to our body. Each Chakra is associated to different levels of body functions, consciousness, sounds, colours, elements and more.

Overview of what the Seven Charka’s deal with and what blocks them!
Clearing and opening these energy centres is referred to as ‘chakra balancing’ or ‘chakra healing.’ This process can lead to a profound transformation of our emotional, physical, and spiritual state.
Balanced Chakra’s bring our body to life and keep us emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually healthy.
If you wish to have your Chakra’ balanced I would love to hear from you.
I use various mediums including Reiki, Sound Healing, Crystals, Intuitive Counselling, AromaTouch Massage with Sound Healing, Australian Bush Flower Essences and doTerra Essential Oils which all assist to help bring you back to your natural state of being, while clearing any blockages in your system, shifting negative programming bringing you back into complete balance.
Working in the realms of our chakra system, energy field and subconscious and conscious programmed belief system. I know how powerful and important the direction of our thoughts both conscious and sub-conscious are, as they contribute to the reality that we live, so I work closely with you to help reprogramme your overall being to assist you back to complete harmony and balance in Mind Body and Soul.
