Chakras – Your seven energy centers

The seven Chakras are the windows of the soul; the healing light of joy, freedom, peace, love, power, vision, & wisdom.

I would like to give you a quick review of the seven Chakras with a brief, simple meaning of each Chakra and its color.  First of all, Chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit.  Each Chakra is like a disc with a source of energy in color.  Each color has a specific source of energy; an easy way to remember the colors is to think of the rainbow, with the same alignment of colors.  When I was a little girl I used to look at the rainbow and would see it as energy – now I know why.  Have you ever heard of anyone who was able to see people’s aura?  Well, they are seeing the energy system of our Chakras.  The seven Chakras start at the base of the spine and go up to the crown of our head.  We all have experienced energy flowing through our seven Chakras, whether we’ve realized it or not.  We all have areas of strengths and weaknesses.  As we travel down our individual path of self-transformation, we are learning to use our strengths to overcome our weaknesses.

Alright, let’s get started with the base of the spine and go up to our crown…

Base of the Spine ChakraRed; also known as “root”, “base”, or “foundation”. This is how we ground ourselves to the physical world, with nature & our environment.  How we choose to use our energy with the base chakra determines the potential of our other chakras – they remain dormant or become fully awakened.

Seat of the Soul Chakra – Orange; this is where we find freedom to be all we are meant to be.  Fluidity, emotions, and movement are set here.  I’m sure you’ve said, “My gut feeling tells me” – this is the energy source where that comes from; our soul identity – being true to ourselves.

Solar-Plexus Chakra – Yellow; how we are directing our energy, dealing with the tests and trials of our karma.  We learn to cultivate inner peace.  This is the area where we get those “butterfly feelings”.

Heart ChakraGreen; life lessons become love in action… The most important energy center in our body, physically and spiritually. Our God energy passes through our heart chakra, it takes on its imprint – a unique vibration and quality of your heart. Purify love with divine spirit and all its vastness.

Throat Chakra: Blue; this is our power center.  Here is the mastery of using our minds and our hearts through our spoken word. That mastery involves not only what we say but how we say it; and what we choose not to say.

Third-Eye ChakraIndigo; we can access the power of inner vision to perceive the reality of a situation.  Your third-eye chakra is holding the highest vision of yourself.  This is about looking within for your truth in any given situation.

Crown ChakraPurple; where we receive and experience wisdom and enlightenment. Being awake to our inner potential; reaching for a higher source of knowledge.

Mind, Body & Spirit…

Love & Light
