A person can collect energy from several different levels of vibrations–including color–that are utilized in various parts of the body. Throughout our body we have main energy centers, which are connected to major organs or glands that govern other body parts. Each of these main energy centers are referred to as a chakra–chakra is a Sanskrit word which means wheel. A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion forming a vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibratory level.
These “spinning wheels” draw-in coded information from our environment. In essence, our chakras receive the health of our environment, including the people we are in contact with (that’s why other people’s moods have an effect on us!). As well our chakras also radiate an energy of vibration.
We have seven main chakra centers and that each main center is connected to our being on several different levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. On the physical level each chakra governs a main organ or gland, which is then connected to other body parts that resonate the same frequency.
The seven main chakra centers are aligned along the spinal column. If there are disturbances or imbalances on any level, this shows in the chakra’s vitality level. Also each of the seven main chakras is their own intelligence center. This means that each chakra is not only associated with our physical health but also controls aspects connected to our emotional, mental and belief systems.
Energy work, color therapy, and crystal therapy all assist in aligning and balancing the chakras.
