Just like water, galaxies and weather patterns all swirl in vortexes, so does our own subtle body’s energy spiral in vortexes when flowing in healthy, fully activated ways.
We actually have many various-sized vortexes of swirling energy in and around our body. And just like our lungs inhale and exhale air from and into our environment, so too our chakras receive and transmit energy.
We can experience our chakras when we tune into the subtle inner sensations of our emotions, desires, our motivation, intuition and many aspects of our creativity. It’s primarily through our chakras that we feel, express, and process life experiences.
Chakras are prismatic, in that we can approach their discovery and healing in many ways. This particular approach focuses on transforming “core wounds” to reveal the inherent “divine state” of each chakra. With a new perception and powerful practices, deep trauma patterns, outworn defenses, and states of suffering can become great inner resources, the foundations of wisdom and our life purpose.
In this model, “core wounds” refer to the early traumas that are awakened in our lives, crossing over from past lives, and that cause us a deep, existential angst. We then usually spend our lives trying to cope, manage, and defend against this pain in various ways, sometimes causing more complicated issues. The themes of our core wounds tend to repeat until they are resolved. We believe this to be our identity and can even be convinced that the reality we are manifesting is fixed, that our circumstances are unchangeable.
Fortunately, this is not true. When we learn to identify our core wounds — then learn specific skills and techniques to transform and release these deep patterns — we begin to live from the inherent divine states of our chakras. From here, we begin to actively direct our lives and create our reality from this pure and powerful core energy.
