Holistic healing acknowledges the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self. The chakra system can help us understand the intersection of these four quadrants of health.
In the West, the concept of energy is still quite foreign and few people are familiar with the subtle body—the part of ourselves that yogis, Chinese medicine practitioners, and traditional eastern practices often reference. It can be felt but not seen. This is the part of you that feels a vibe when you enter a room. The subtle body is full of vibration and information, and many of us can feel it but do not know how to use it to better understand ourselves and our experiences. The chakra system is the key to becoming conscious of this unconscious material so we can positively impact our growth and healing.
