Energy Medicine 101
Energy or Kundalini energy (also called prana or life force energy, qi and chi) resides on both a macro and micro level. On the macro level, it resides within all matter on the Earth plane, and extends into the Universe and beyond, into other planes and dimensions. On the micro level, it is within each one of us and around us.
Within each of us, energy runs through us, almost like an electrical current, maintaining our body and organs, thus keeping us alive. The energy within the body flows through a system of energy centers, also known as the chakra system. There are seven main chakras within this system that stack upon one another beginning at the base of the body, ending at the crown of the head. Each aligns to a certain part of the body and an imbalance in any one chakra can lead to disease or dis-ease.
Prana also exists outside of the body- in the air we breathe, nature, other people, the food and water we consume, animals and even inanimate objects such as stones. This energy, external to the body, is able to impact each of us internally, thus altering the flow of life force residing within each of us in a positive or negative way.
All energy vibrates at a certain frequency and can be measured in hertz. Hertz is the measurement of the Earth on its axis. Since we are all energetic beings comprised of chakras (energy centers along our body), with energy flowing in, between and from each chakra to the next, the goal for each of us is to raise his/her vibration. Once we achieve a high vibrational state, thereby also balancing the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical layers of the body, we will have optimum health and wellness in all areas of our lives. Through working with this natural, God-given energy, we can take a proactive role in regaining, maintaining and improving all components of our lives.
