Chakra Body

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel.’ Traditional writings say there are some 88,000 chakras in the human body. They are our psychic energy centers & they form connections between the physical body & the aura. The aura is just as much you as your physical body it just exists on the next plane up & carries a higher vibration. There are 7 major chakras located in key places along the spinal column from its base to the top of the head & they are the most significant. They are located in the ethereal body and they express the embodiment of spiritual energy on the physical plane. They carry life-force energy along the spine bringing this energy both up from the root & down from the crown. Having any of them blocked means the stuff you need for life does not get through. Ultimately, illness becomes directly related to the blockages that occur. All of the main chakras affect the physical body so strongly because each is connected to one of the body’s ductless glands.

The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine & the color associated with it is red. The glands this center corresponds to are the gonads. This is where our fight or flight instinct comes from. It is our grounding center as it is the chakra most closely connected to the physical plane.

The Sacral Chakra is located 2 inches below your navel along your spine & the color associated with it is orange. It corresponds in the physical body to the spleen. It is the most creative center in a physical sense.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is located at the base of the sternum & the color associated with it is yellow. Its corresponding glands are the adrenals. This center is considered the seat of the lower mind & in it we find focus & concentration. It is also the storage center for raised energy that is not yet needed.

The Heart Chakra is located at the center of the chest & the color associated with it is green. The corresponding gland is the thymus. This center is considered the seat of unconditional love & the key to all healing work.

The Throat Chakra is located at the root of the tongue. It is the higher octave of the root center so it is highly creative & also strongly sexual. The color associated with it is blue & it corresponds to the thyroid gland. This is our center of will. The ability to manifest desires comes from this center. Mediumship & channeling are abilities that focus in this center & you need to be sure that it is strongly developed in those cases to remain in control.

The third eye or Ajna Chakra is located at the root of the nose, between the eyes & the color associated with it is deep indigo. This center is the doorway into the realm of spirit. When combined with the crown chakra it allows clairvoyant ability. It is the higher octave of the sacral center & again, highly creative. It corresponds with the pineal gland.

The Crown Chakra is often referred to as the thousand petal lotus which is located at the top of the head & the color associated with it is violet. Fully opened it expands consciousness to higher planes. Insight, intuition & wisdom from the higher self can be connected with via this chakra. The gland it corresponds to is the pituitary.

Open, healthy, & developed chakras equal the body being vibrant & filled with life force energy. It is important to open, develop, and balance ALL the chakras. As you develop them to carry more energy you create an expansion of consciousness & your psychic abilities begin to expand as well. Balanced chakras result in a stronger aura which makes it hard for outside negative influences to affect you energetically. This is the foundation of psychic protection.

You can balance & develop the chakras in numerous ways from yoga, color therapy, music, physical exercise, balancing using crystals or pendulums, to Reiki healing, but one of the simplest most effective ways that I have found to accomplish this is through meditation. Focus & thought are energy & directing energy towards those centers can be enough to begin the balancing process.


Chakra Balancing & Development Exercise:

Lie down or sit comfortably with your back supported. Close your eyes & take 3 deep breaths, blowing out all of your tensions on each exhale. In your mind’s eye see yourself floating over a lake of bright white light but still fluid like water.

Focus your attention on your root center. Take a deep breath in & imagine a small stream of that white fluid light rising up from the lake & entering in through your root center. Breath in deeply again & vision that center beginning to glow a powerful red. Breathe in again & see that red glowing center gaining in size & brightness.

Now focus your attention on your sacral center. Take a deep breath in and vision more of the bright white fluid light entering again through your root center but traveling up through the root center & beyond to your sacral center. Breathe in again & see this center begin to glow a vibrant orange. Breathe in again & see that orange glowing center gaining in size & brightness.

Now focus your attention on your solar plexus center. Take a deep breath in & imagine more of that white fluid light rising up again flowing through your root center & your sacral center & up into your solar plexus. Breath in again, drawing more of the light in through your chakras & vision your solar plexus beginning to glow a wonderful yellow. Breathe in again & see that glowing yellow center gaining in size & brightness.

Now focus your attention on your heart center. Take a deep breath in & imagine more of that white fluid light rising up again flowing through your root center & your sacral center & your solar plexus & into your heart center. Breathe in again, drawing more of the light in through your chakras & vision your heart center beginning to glow a brilliant emerald green. Breathe in again & see that glowing green center gaining in size & brightness.

Now focus your attention on your throat center. Take a deep breath in & imagine more of that white fluid light rising up again flowing up through your root center & your sacral center & your solar plexus & your heart center & up into your throat center. Breathe in again, drawing more of the light in through your chakras & vision your throat center beginning to glow a beautiful sky blue. Breathe in again & see that glowing blue center gaining in size & brightness.

Now focus your attention on your third eye. Take a deep breath in & imagine more of that white fluid light rising up again flowing up through your root center, your sacral center, your solar plexus, your heart center, throat center, & up into your third eye center. Breathe in again, drawing more of the light in through your chakras & vision your third eye center beginning to glow a deep indigo blue. Breathe in again & see that glowing deep blue center gaining in size & brightness.

Now move your focus up to your crown center. Take a deep breath in & imagine more of that white fluid light rising up again flowing up through your root center, your sacral center, your solar plexus, your heart center, your throat center, your third eye center, & up into your crown center. Breathe in again, drawing more of the light in through your chakras & vision your crown center beginning to glow a cool violet. Breathe in again & see that glowing violet center gaining in size & brightness.

Now breathe in deeply again & imagine the white fluid light flowing up through all of your chakras & shooting straight up & out through your crown chakra & raining back down over your entire body till you are covered completely by a fine bright white mist.

Relax & enjoy this feeling, slowly bringing yourself back to waking consciousness when you’re ready.

Love & Light,

~Dawn
