Do you tend to roll your eyes every time some one mentions the word chakra? I know I do a lot of the times. Especially if it is being used along with words such as “open”, “close” or “clear”. As a scientist by trade, I find really disturbing all the garbage, intentional and unintentional that surrounds such an important aspect of our existence.
My most favorite way to describe the chakras is that of Plato. Plato referred to the chakras as the subtle organs that our soul uses to relate to our physical body.
This is why it should be of no surprise that there is plenty of scientific experimental evidence which shows that working with the chakras is like strength training for our emotions and our mind.
The following is a 25-second Sound Bite from Episode 043, where we discuss the root chakra and how you can use it for a stronger emotional and mental world. Also, you do not want to miss Tim’s singing! 🙂
