Chakras – An Overview

I talked about chakras and energy centers in my post: Energy Cleansing in 30 Minutes A Day. Each of us is a being of light and energy. This is our essential nature. This energy flows through our being and is concentrated in seven centers or chakras that seem to follow the spinal column and are located near various glands in the body.

So What Are Chakras?

I am going to begin a series of posts about the chakras. One post a month will deal with each of the seven chakras in order.

The word chakra is Sanskrit and means “wheel.” Clairvoyants say that the chakras resemble spinning wheels or fans.

Each center seems to be associated with the issues of life.

The Lower Three Chakras, Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus

As you move up the body, the lower three chakras, the root chakra, the sacral chakra and the solar plexus chakra, deal with issues of the material world such as money and success, power and relationships.

The Upper Three Chakras, Throat, Third Eye and Crown Chakra

The upper three chakras, the throat chakra, the third eye chakra and the crown chakra, concern the truth,spiritual sight and hearing and our connection with God.

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is the middle between the two and is concerned with the energy of love, which holds the material and the spiritual dimensions together and makes the world, both inner and outer go round.
