The Chakras

The universe is made up of various types of energy, and being a part of the universe, we are also made up of energy.  Energy flows through our bodies and affects everything from our mood to our physical health. 

The earth has certain areas of power where energy tends to gather, and ley lines that connect these power centers.  Our bodies also have energy centers which are connected by a network through which energy flows throughout our bodies, connecting our mind, soul, and body together.

We have many energy points in our bodies but there are seven major energy vortexes known as chakras.

Each chakra corresponds to areas of the physical body, but also affects our mental, emotional and spiritual portions of being as well.

Just as sound and light vibrate at different frequencies and can affect all forms of energy, so too our chakras vibrate at different frequencies and have visual correspondences because of it.

The seven major chakras start at the top of our head and go all the way to the base of our spine. 

The Crown Chakra is located at the center of the top of your skull.  It vibrates a bright white or deep purple.  It is associated with a connection to the universal energy and to spiritual matters.

The Third Eye Chakra is located in the middle of your forehead between your eyebrows but raised slightly above the brow ridge.  It is connected to your intuition and the ability to tap into the universal knowledge all around us.  It is the color of indigo.

The Throat Chakra is located in the center of your throat below your jaw.  It is associated with communication.  It is valuable not just with the art of speaking but also with listening to what others have to say.  It is seen as a turquoise or sky blue.

The Heart Chakra is found in the center of the sternum.  It is instrumental in experiencing compassion, love and hope. It is sometimes felt to be the seat of the soul.  It vibrates in a  deep green tint.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is located in the soft tissue midway between your rib cage and your navel.  It is the source of emotions, your sense of self, along with your will power.  It glows bright yellow.

The Sacral or Intestinal Chakra is just below the navel.  It is the seat of interpretation and vitality, and is the basis of your sense of security and connection with others. This is seen as a vibrant orange.

The Base or Root Chakra is located at the base of your spine spreading through your pelvic floor.  It is the source of creativity, sexuality, fear, anger, and survival instinct.  It vibrates an intense red color.

When your chakras are balanced and in harmony they allow the energy to flow freely, aiding your ability to maintain a healthy physical body, attune your mind, and allow your soul to vibrate at its highest level.
