The 7 Chakras for beginners

You have probably heard of the Chakra’s before but are still a bit confused as to what they are or do exactly…

What is a Chakra

The word Chakra is a Sanskrit word, the direct translation from Hindi is “wheel of spinning energy”. In  most instances we refer to the main 7 Chakra’s that run directly through our body (see image) although there are many more that are exterior to us.

Simply put, the Chakra’s are the main energy centres that connect physical and spiritual as they regulate the flow of energy within and around our body.

It is quite normal for our Chakra’s to become blocked on occasion due to our journey in life, for example; Stress, emotional or physical problems. If the energy is not cleared so it can flow it can create further problems such as physical illness and discomfort or a feeling of mental or emotional imbalance.

Becoming aware of your Chakra’s puts you in control as it will allow you to learn to clear blockages as they come up.

Remember that although you may have an unbalanced/blocked Chakra that this is not necessarily something to be alarmed about, balance can be attained through meditation or by seeking a clearing from an energy healer.

I had a fantastic reading with Sam on the 31/07/2021. He was extremely accurate with everything he told me, things that only i would know or that my deceased parents would know. Absolutely blew me out of the water and i will be getting future readings with Sam again for sure.
Highly recommended!!
Thanks again Sam.

Sam Petrou is a genuine and spiritually gifted Psychic Medium. Having met Sam at a fair over 7yrs ago, his peaceful energy and accurate guidance has always given me the direction I needed. I have now completed his workshops for personal development and this has been incredibly intuitively awakening. I strongly recommend Sam to anyone seeking messages for their soul and guidance for life’s journey ahead.


I have just completed Sam's level 1 workshop and it was an amazing experience and I enjoyed it so much that I have signed up for his level 2 workshop. Sam has a beautiful soul and is a wonderful mentor who is patient and gentle, he is always willing to answer any questions and I really benefited positively with everything including our meditation sessions which has helped me to discover a lot more within myself and receive guided messages. I really recommend doing Sam's workshop as you learn so much, I can't wait to start level 2 soon.

Completed Psychic Mediumship & Self Development online workshops with Sam and I would highly recommend this exceptional learning experience and opportunity for personal growth. Sam is a great facilitator and mentor that provides individualised support and coaching throughout the duration of the course. I found that the live workshops were well structured and interactive. The allocated reflective tasks and techniques demonstrated were simple to follow and built upon each other as the workshops progressed. Thank you Sam for such a great learning experience and supporting me to practice and learn.

Had a fantastic reading from Sam. He clarified a few things for me. He was spot on, and made some interesting predictions that I definitely was not expecting to hear. Thanks Sam for your insight and sensitivity. Will definitely do it again. Hopefully in person. Sending you all good wishes for all the help, support and positive energy you give out to everyone.
