Energetics, Emotions & Chakras

Australian Essential oils believe for health and well-being it is very important to have an understanding of our innate Body’s Energy System.  In many spiritual and healing disciplines, and in the world of complementary medicine the word Chakra pops up quite a bit. That’s fine if you know its meaning; not so great, and I must say pretty confusing, if you don’t.

The 7 Chakras are the energy centres in our body in which energy flows through.

The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. Literally translated from the Hindi it means ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’. A chakra is like a whirling, vortex-like, powerhouse of energy.

The chakras spin and energy flows through them. Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency. At times this energy can become stuck or the chakra can pick up energy from an outside source. When a chakra is not balanced, it can affect that physical region of the body and also affect specific aspects of our spiritual and emotional selves.
Within our bodies, you have seven of these major energy centres and many more minor ones.

You can think of chakras as invisible, rechargeable batteries.

They are charged and recharged through contact with the stream of cosmic energy in the atmosphere in much the same way that your home is connected to a central power source within a city – the only difference is that this cosmic energy source is free.

Imagine this, a vertical power current rather like a fluorescent tube that runs up and down the spine, from the top of the head to the base of the spine. Think of this as your main source of energy. The seven major chakras are in the centre of the body and are aligned with this vertical “power line. ”

Chakras connect your spiritual bodies to your physical one.

They regulate the flow of energy throughout the electrical network (meridians) that runs through the physical body. The body’s electrical system resembles the wiring in a house. It allows electrical current to be sent to every part, and it is ready for use when needed.

Sometimes chakras become blocked because of stress, emotional or physical problems. If the body’s ‘energy system’ can not flow freely it is likely that problems will occur. The consequence of irregular energy flow may result in physical illness and discomfort or a sense of being mentally and emotionally out of balance. They  too have their own individual frequencies and energetic properties and can be of great assistance in balancing the energetic body as well as the chakras.

The Aura

The aura is the electromagnetic (energy) field around the body, and there are 7 energy centers or vortices in the body, that are called chakras.

It is in the auric field and the chakras that our thoughts, feelings, and experiences are recorded.


Essential oils too have their own individual frequencies and energetic properties and can be of great assistance in balancing the energetic body as well as the chakras.
