The 7 Main Chakras are Vital for Our Existence
This seven chakra simple guide is your doorway to understanding these vital power centers. Our world and the universe that we reside in is made up of energy. Energy is what keeps us going. So, where does this personal life force energy come from? The answer to this is that the energy force of life comes directly from the seven chakras which are located within our *Etheric Body.
Each of the seven main chakras empowers an aspect of our consciousness. For understanding the chakras, think of them as the flow of energy operating in your life. The energy of the chakras is subtle rather than physical. Those with clairvoyant vision speak of the chakras as vortexes of energy that spin with each radiating its own color. The more energy flowing through the chakras, the faster they spin.
Wheels of Light
The word “Chakra” originates from an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “Wheels of Light.” The wheels are actually spinning vortexes that draw in energy.
In Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, a chakra is defined as a non-physical energy center of power. Additionally, chakra centers are situated where the crossing points of energy channels called Nadis meet. Nadis are the conduits in the subtle body through which the life force (prana) circulates. (More information about chakras and nadis is contained in The Psychic-Clairvoyance Training Course.)
The chakras, aligned with our spine, are linked to different areas of our body and its functions–from mental to physical to spiritual. Importantly, chakras act as a conduit for the energy to flow through the body. More importantly, they direct energy throughout the entire body.
The Concept of the Chakras Goes Back to Ancient India
The teachings of the chakras go back to the Hindu yogis in ancient India. They were brought to the western world’s attention in the early 1900s by Madam Helena Blavatsky. Blavatsky spent years in India learning ancient teachings from Tibetan Masters. Since then, metaphysical students and healers have focused heavily on the functions of the chakra system.
Once you understand what chakras are and how they influence your overall field of energy, you will have a better understanding of yourself and perhaps how to make simple improvements in your life.
An Overview of the Seven Main Chakras
The Seven Main Chakras are not only the Wheels of Light but are actually the Wheels of LIFE!
Few people choose to study additional chakras beyond the primary seven. Perhaps this is because there are hundreds more contained within our human energy field.
The seven main in-body chakras are the ones which have a significant impact on your aura, or energy field, and ultimately your overall health and well-being.
Understanding the effects of these seven primary in-body chakras and their purpose, goes a long way for keeping them healthy, open and continuing to circulate the vital life source energy throughout the entire body.
