The Mystery Of Chakra and Flowers

Chakra practice is an aspect of meditative visualization and channeling of the body entity that is very popular amongst the Indians and is said to be key to relaxation as well as a means of psychological boost for most. Like Star signs, practice of chakra usually comes with several misconceptions and interpretations but it's best we make detail research before drawing conclusions which is exactly what this article is all about. So we may connect chakras, the energy centers of the body in Eastern tradition, and flowers, pretty, ephemeral, bright, cheerful manifestations of nature through yoga energy techniques.

There are about 7 main chakras which are in a line from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and one more newly recognized chakra just above the head which I believe is important. Each one is associated with various areas of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. When the energy flow in one becomes blocked it can result in certain symptoms and vice versa. By keeping the chakras open and the energy flowing, we can maximize our body’s ability to keep well and heal itself.

One way of stimulating energy flow is by a simple visualization is to focus by imagining color spectrum linked to chakra and taking deep breathes as this will help you create a positive aura and energy. When we talk about flowers anything you use to visualize the color would work, paint swatches, colored stones or crystals, an image in your minds eye, but perfect photographs of flowers saturated in the pure color of each chakra can bring some extra flower energy into your life as well. 

Flowers raise the vibrational energy around them, which is why they have long been associated with celebrations, brought as presents to new mothers, sick people, loved ones. Weddings and funerals are blessed with them. We are not really aware of the spiritual connection these days, we just know that flowers cheer people up and make them feel glad.

There are books written about the chakras going into far more detail than there is space for here, as it is a deep and complex subject, with infinite, individual interpretations, but here is a basic, brief summary of the chakras and their associated areas and colors.
