About Chakra Conscious
There are seven main chakras within the human body and eight within the equine body. Chakras are points in the body that correspond to a specific area where multiple nerves crisscross, engaging powerful energies. It is believed that, through meditating on these specific Chakras, you can learn to control the energy in your body and experience everything from spontaneous healing to enlightenment. Chakra Conscious® not only educates you about the power of Chakras, it assists you, and your horse, in experiencing the positive power of healing and connecting that Chakras can bring to your life and your relationships.
Your consciousness, your experience of being, represents everything that is possible for you to experience.
All your senses, all of your perceptions, all of your possible states of awareness, can be divided into seven categories, and each of these categories can be associated with a particular chakra.
Thus, the chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also particular parts of your consciousness.
When you feel tension in your consciousness, you feel it in the chakra associated with the part of your consciousness experiencing the stress, and in the parts of the physical body associated with that chakra.
Where you feel the stress depends therefore on why you feel the stress.
When someone is hurt in a relationship, they feel it in their heart. When someone is nervous, their legs tremble and their bladder becomes weak.
Horses hold emotional tension and stress in their bodies too. This shows up in their uneasiness or anxiety towards an experience such as trail riding, trailer loading, being saddled or the whip.
The opposite would be a young, untainted baby horse. They are born naturally curious, emotionally open and self-regulated.
When negative experiences happen, they will naturally switch from a relaxed nervous system (parasympathetic) to a heightened one where natural survival instincts take over (sympathetic nervous system) such as freeze (detach), flight (over reactive) or fight (defensive).
Too much stress, tension, toxins for too long periods of time and they will naturally (like us) store these tensions, toxins, within their body, thus affecting their nervous system and natural ability to self-regulate.
