The chakras

Chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit. Our bodies have 7 energy centers that look like spinning wheels, starting at our perineum and flowing in a straight line up to the crown of our head. In order to be 100% healthy, we must be in allignment. Each chakra must be open and spinning correctly.

The "root" chakra is at the perineum. It's color is red and it extends down to the earth. This is the chakra that governs our physical existance. When it is open you will feel grounded, stable and secure.

The "sacral" chakra is located at the area of the womb(in the same area for men, even though they don't have a womb). It's color is orange and it extends horizontalyl out from the body. This chakra governs creativity and emotions(to some extent). When it is open your feelings will flow freely.

The "solar plexus" chakra is located above the belly button, at the solar plexus(thus, the name). It's color is yellow and it also extends horizontally out from the body. This chakra is assosiated with will and desire. When it is open you will have sufficient self esteem and you will feel in control.

The "heart" chakra is located in the middle of the breast bone. It's color is green and extend horizontally out from the body. This chakra is assosiated with emotion and love. When it is open you are compassionate and friendly.

The "throat" chakra is located on the neck. It's color is bright blue and extends horizontally out from the body. This chakra is about self-expression and speech. When it is open you will express yourself clearly.

The "third eye" chakra is located between the eyes at the top of the nose. It's color is indigo and also extends out horizontally from the body. It is about insight and visualization. When it is open you will have good intuition.

The "crown" chakra is located at the top of the head. It's color is violet and extends up. This chakra connects us with God. I heard someone once describe this chakra as our umbilical cord that connects us with God. I liked that, so it's always stuck with me.

I often do a chakra connection, decribed by Brugh Joy in "Joy's Way," to get everything back in allignment. When I do a distance healing on someone I will also do something similar to get them all back into allignment.

Since I mentioned distance healing, I thought I'd mention that I offer this free of charge as I have not felt lead to ask money for it. Donations or trades are always accepted though.

Hi, it's Katrina, Herbwifemama- I'd be the one from NCH here tonight. ;)

I went searching for your chakra info there only to find it all deleted to my dismay (at your request, they said)- they pointed me to your blog, and here I am, please send me the chakra info you posted- I haven't found anything better. I'll share with you a bit about why I need it, if you're interested, but not here in the comments on your blog. Email me: eponine49 at yahoo dot com
