The core of our energetic system are the Chakras. These are the etheric energy vortexes of the spiritual body. The discovery of these centers and their importance was discovered many thousands of years earlier but are only slowly being recognized here in the West. These vortexes are responsible for distributing all of the spiritual energy into our bodies. When these centers are operating correctly we are healthy, happy and we are free to operate at our peak potential. If during our lives, we experience significant trauma at either a physical or a mental and emotional level, these vital centers can become blocked or unbalanced.
