CHAKRA COLORS AND MEANINGS

There are seven main energy centres (chakras) of the body. These chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others. Using the seven colours of the spectrum, Colour Therapy aims to balance and enhance our body's energy centres/chakras and also to help stimulate our body's own healing process. Colour therapy can be shown to help on a physical level; however there are deeper issues around the colours on the psychological and spiritual levels. Our well being is not purely a physical issue.

7 Kundalini Yoga Postures to Clear the Chakras “Men of great knowledge actually found out about the chakras – their workings, their petals, their sounds, their infinity, their co-relationship, their powers. They found that the life of a human is totally based on these chakras. They developed into a whole science. The human body is a complex system encompassing vast energy systems that are not immediately perceptible with our limited eyes. Asana,or postures, are positions of the body used to activate and direct energy to open both a physical and an energetic position in the body. 1) First Chakra, the Root Chakra (Muladhara): Foundations, fear, survival Asana: Crow Pose 2) Second Chakra, the Sacral Chakra (Svadisthana): Creation, desire, relationships Asana: Frog Pose Keep the heels together and the fingers on the ground. 3) Third Chakra, the Solar Plexus (Manipura): Will, action Asana: Stretch Pose Lift the head and the feet six inches off the ground. 4) Fourth Chakra, the Heart Chakra (Anahata): Love Asana: Camel Pose Asana: Cobra Pose

Chakras All human beings and animals have a set of seven energetic centers along the midline of the body from the feet to the head. This is well known in other cultures, but not in Western medicine or science. A common name used for these energy centers is a Sanskrit word from India - the energy centers. The word means spinning vortices of energy, which is a good description of them. This article is an introduction to these funnel-shaped spinning vortices. They are located at the midline of the body, along the spine, as illustrated below. All are shaped like double funnels joined at the narrow ends except the first and seventh. Every person also has another set of etheric centers. Centers are “closed” in most people. Ideally, the energy centers should begin to open during the teenage years. Factors that promote the opening of the centers. All major religions discuss this, although they may not mention the energy centers.

Free meditations: how to meditate and attain inner peace and freedom Coffitivity - Increase Your Creativity! Religions - Hinduism: Vishnu The Hara Line Chakras - Reiki Heidi: Reiki Healing in Norwich The Hara Line Chakras are located in between the 'major' chakra points, along the central line of the body, and I am noticing them more during my Reiki healings. Hara Line Chakras Outside of the body, above the head and below the feet are the Transpersonal Point and the Earth Chakra, respectively. Working from the top down, at the base of the skull is the Causal Body chakra and is crimson. Next is the Diaphragm Chakra, and is lime green. I believe many healers instinctively know about the Tan Tien – for example, I naturally held my hands flat on my belly, in a diamond shape around my navel when working with energy- around the Tan Tien. For me personally, obviously the Tan Tien is extremely active, and is where I always start with self-Reiki, feeling the energy gathering there before I move on to the 'major' chakra positions. If you work with energy, or meditate, try meditating on the Thymus Chakra to activate it, and sense what it means/feels/sends to you. Heidi.

Barbara Brennan's explanation of the chakras The chakras according to Barbara Brennan (diagnostic view) diagram from Hands of Light, Bantam New Age books, 1988, p.46. The contemporay holistic healer Barbara Brennan goes into some detail regarding the chakras. In this she is following the Theosophists like Leadbeater, Alice Bailey, David Tansley and many others. Like them, she adopts the Tantric model of seven chakras but modifies it quite drastically, the chakras being no longer organs of yogic consciousness but rather etheric (and astral, and mental...) vortexes (see above illustration), which serve as transformers that receive and process cosmic energy, as well as enabling expression and healthy functioning of the individual's own consciousness and psycho-physical make-up. Barbara Brennan's unique contribution is to have not one but two rows of chakras, arranged in pairs located at the front and rear.
