Meditation Visualizations: Chakras and Colors

There are seven main energy centers (chakras) of the body. These chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others.

All life experiences have an affect upon us. Some experiences will be positive and some negative. It is these negative experiences which can manifest themselves physically over time as dis-ease. For example, let's say that through the years we have been in a situation where we have felt unable, for one reason or another, to speak our mind, or to express our needs and feelings. This can manifest as a problem in the throat chakra.

Energy medicine-or medicine with the focus on the chakras and other energy centers of the body may well be the most exciting, newest frontiers of medicine-not just natural and holistic medicine. It is not new to many of us and certainly not new to the World. It is, however, new to western medicine. Stay tuned for news of the latest research.

The throat chakra relates in the spiritual aspect to self expression. Thus, if our self expression has been blocked, the energy in this area will not be free flowing. Some of the associated problems with a blocked flow in the throat chakra are Thyroid problems - over active/under active; Anorexia nervosa (this is a multi-chakra problem but has a strong connection to the throat chakra); asthma; bronchitis; hearing problems; tinnitus - may also be connected to problems with the brow chakra; problems of the upper digestive tract; mouth ulcers, sore throats, tonsillitis.
