Linking Science and Spiritually.
How are Cilia in cells and chakras the similar?
Inside nearly all mammalian cells are cilia which are are microscopic, hair like structures that protrude downwards at a 45 degree angle playing a part in our cells cycle of proliferation and progression.
As the cicila are constantly beating this creates a left-ward flow of the liquid inside that circulates around the cell.

There are two types of cilia. Motile and non-motile. Motile (moving Cilia) have a rhythmic wave keeping our airways clear allowing us to breathe easily. Smoking and poor diet can damage and burn the cilia causing a build up of mucus and phlegm in the lungs, respiratory track and middle ear.
Non-Motile cilia receive signals from other cells or fluids nearby, igniting a crucial role in some of the organs. Cilia in our kidneys, alert the cells that there is a flow of urine and they bend with the urine flow.
Long before technology chakras were born. There are 7 chakras that run up the mid-line of the body and are still used today to centre, balance and enlighten the body and mind.
Chakra is an old Sanskrit word that means wheel. The life force, prana, spins and rotates inside our body and brain and must keep doing so to maintain ultimate health.
The connection between ancient cultures and the planet we live on is evident with the colours of the chakras relating to the colours of the rainbow with Red being at the bottom and Violet at the top of the head.
The human body is an energetic field that has been created, somehow, by the marvels of the universe. Whether you are logical and want to believe in the science or creative enough to give spiritually a chance it is finding a happy medium of the two that uses the left and right hemisphere of the brain giving us a deeper and more fulfilling understanding. Whatever you choose to learn, practically applying will feed and nourish the body and brain leading to a healthy, enlightened being.
