The 7 Chakras - Main Energy Centers

The chakra system originated in India between 1500 and 500 BC in the oldest text called the Vedas. The Vedas are the earliest Sanskrit literary records and the most ancient scriptures of Hinduism. These texts and ancient healing traditions tell us that there is a subtle, divine energy that is the foundation of all life, of the whole universe. This life force energy is called “prana”, “chi” or “ki”.

Chakras (Sanskrit: “wheel”) are energy centers in our body. We have many energy centers in our body, of which there are seven main ones that are located along the spine, through the neck and the top of the head. Each chakra corresponds to specific organs as well as physical, emotional, psychological, emotional and spiritual states of being and influences all areas of our life. Each of these potent energy centers has a unique vibrational frequency. At Seed of Life Healing each crystal bowl is tuned to one of the seven main chakras in our body. 


It is believed, that unbalanced chakras - or blocked energy in and around the chakras - can lead to physical and emotional imbalances, distress and even disease. When the chakras are balanced and harmonised, our energy is free-flowing, allowing prana (Sanskrit: "breath", life force energy) to flow through them, keeping us healthy, happy, vibrant and energized.


To complement Seed of Life Healing's services of sound healing and chakra balancing, we have developed seven unique hypercharged Chakra Oils - one oil for each chakra - to balance and harmonize your energy centers.
