THE SEVEN MAJOR CHAKRAS
 
chakras and meditation pose
Chakra is a word derived from Sanskrit and means wheel or vortex. 
 
Chakras are parts of the consciousness, the same as the aura. 
 
Chakras are denser than the aura and some people can see them and observe them as a pulsating wheel of focused energy constantly rotating.
Each Chakra rotates at a different speed. 
 
The Chakras are arranged along the Kundalini channel, which runs from the bottom of the spine to the top of the head and these seven major chakras “hook” into the spine.
 
Each chakra has a different colour, ranging through the rainbow colours.  In the picture above the Sanskrit names are on the left and the English ones on the right.
 
Life energy focuses at the Chakras and provides a gateway to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energies.  Chakras represent a “blueprint” of the body.  They hold information of past pain and trauma.
 
This affects our physical health through their connection to the endrocrine glands that regulate human behaviour.
 
When the Chakras are in perfect alignment people are well balanced, energised and in good health in their body and mind.
 
If one or more chakras are under stress than this can affect the other chakras and can manifest as a physical illness.
 
Our Chakra system performance influences our energy field (aura) and this reflects on our physical and spiritual health and how we feel.
 
Crystal pendulums can be used to check the energy levels of the Chakra system.  Many healers feel the energy levels of the Chakras through their hand chakras. 
 
Crystals, colour, aromatherapy, flower essences, etc can be used to align the Chakras and heal physical and mental ailments.

When you are ready open your eyes.
 
Now have a drink of water to hydrate yourself.
