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. Things are different today, however, in at least three ways: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Coffitivity - Increase Your Creativity! 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 uses colour to re-balance the Chakras that have become depleted of energy. 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. Colour has a profound effect on us on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Our well being is not purely a physical issue. All life experiences have an affect upon us. The Colours VIOLET/PURPLE governs the CROWN chakra, at the top of the head. Related organ: brain Endocrine gland: pineal gland.

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. These relate to heavenly Ch'i and Earth Ch'i: the energy that we draw in to our bodies from outside of us. when we draw the energy in, down our bodies from the head, this is Universal Heavenly energy, and it is light, clear, and quick-flowing. When we draw energy in, up from the ground, this is 'grounding' or earthly energy, and it is heavier, black, and slower moving. 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. 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.

Collection of Human Frequencies - Reflexology - Chakra Charts - Energy Meridians - Hands, Feet, Tongue, 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.
