Nowadays we have Kirlian photography to see the human aura. This is one I had taken in 2001.
The energy field surrounding the body is called the aura .
The aura or human energy field is composed of 7 levels.
There is a physical, emotional, mental, 3 spiritual levels and pure universal energy at the core.
Each level penetrates through the body and extends out from the skin (not separate like an onion).
It is through the energy field that your life situations, events and experiences, as well as our material world are created.
The 7 main chakras look like funnels in the body. 1 and 7 form a large channel from the crown down the middle of the body to the base, chakras 2 to 6 extend from the front to the back of the body.
The 7 main chakras correspond to the endocrine glands and the major nerve plexus in the body. The chakras funnel energy to the various organs and are each associated with a colour and qualities. Details about each of the main 7 chakras, their location, function and associated qualities are taught in a Reiki 1 class.
There must be a balanced energy flow through the chakras for health and balance to exist in the body.
During a Reiki session, the practitioner is able to channel universal life force energy directly into our energy system through the chakras.
