A Simple Guide to the Body’s Energy Systems. Our premise is that first and foremost we are energy beings; we are spiritual beings or souls having a human experience. We comprise of an energy field – an electro-magnetic field that completely surrounds and penetrates our body called our aura. Furthermore, without this energy field we would not exist. It’s not so much that we are a body first that owns this field; It’s more the case that we are this energy and because of this we have a body. What’s more, this energy field stretches out for several feet around us and we call it an aura. Similarly, a denser energy field sits close against the skin is called the etheric. This is also the blueprint for our body and being.
The aura draws in lifeforce energy or prana or chi and feeds it through the etheric into our chakras or energy centres. These then in turn feed energy via our meridians—an energetic network paralleling our nervous system. This lifeforce energy also works with our glands and nervous system to energise us and keep us healthily functioning. Likewise, this lifeforce energy interacts with water and minerals within our systems to create and sustain physical life.
Our energy field needs to be well-grounded in order to function properly. Modern footwear and buildings insulate us from the earth and just like electrical systems we need to be properly earthed to function optimally and healthfully. To rectify this, go barefoot for at least 30 mins a day outside on the natural ground, or use an earthing mat indoors.
Our essential chakra system overlays our major organs:
- Earth Star Chakra – at our feet. Primary connection to our physical source. Grounding.
- Base Chakra – over our reproductive organs. Connected to survival, physicality, and security.
- Sacral Chakra – roughly in the area of our navel or digestive system. Related to gut instinct and emotions, sexual energy.
- Solar Plexus Chakra – bottom of the sternum. Lungs and breathing, nervous and digestive systems. The seat of the ego.
- Heart Chakra – over the heart. Lifeforce and prana. Centre for love and self-expression.
- Throat Chakra – at the throat. Verbal and nonverbal communication. Personal responsibility.
- Third Eye Chakra – Brow, between the eyes. Psychic ability. Intuition.
- Crown Chakra – just above the top of the head. Brain. Primary connection to our spiritual source. Integration point. Point of acceptance or denial.
A Simple System for Maintaining Your Body’s Balance and Harmony
Using Crystals and Natural Elements
If possible go outside and find an area that appeals to your senses. Preferably do this at a time when and where you are not overexposed to the elements. Allow yourself about 30 minutes for this exercise, however, any amount of time is preferable to none and you may go longer if you want. Sit at ease in a chair and earth yourself by planting your bare feet firmly on the ground, or sit directly upon the earth.
Breathe comfortably from your abdomen whilst holding a Clear Quartz crystal in each hand. This is a fantastic energy recharge and it also brings oxygen into your systems. What’s more, the average person can only survive 2 minutes without air and the life force or prana it contains.
Close your eyes and allow your mind to wander, or use this time to meditate.
All things being equal the energy from the ether will now feed down through your aura, into your chakras, and then disperse throughout your body to balance and harmonise all of your systems.
The combination of natural elements, earthing, breathing and energy balancing with crystals does wonders, so that at completion you should find yourself relaxed, but feeling energised and clear.
