An Introduction to The Chakras
A chakra is an energy center in the human body that receives, processes and transmits information about particular aspects of being and experience. The Sanskrit word “chakra” literally means “wheel,” which is an apt name for these energy portals since they rotate in a circular fashion just like a wheel. It helps to think of the chakras as revolving doors between the human body and the outside world.
Once a human being suffers in life, the Chakras get effected and at times when the suffering prolongs, it leads to serious negative blocks and may also lead to life threatening issues, as the sufferings increases it leads to de-generation of chakras resulting into various medical, physical financial, emotional, etc issues, if not cured on time can prove fatal
As the energy moves upward and downward in a swirling fashion, it makes one full rotation for each chakra so that the front body chakras typically spin clockwise (“masculine”) and the back body chakras typically spin counter-clockwise (“feminine”).
In the most commonly accepted chakra model, the seven main bodily chakras are:
1st Chakra – Tailbone(Root) – Red – “Muladhara”
2nd Chakra – Sacral – Orange – “Svadisthana”
3rd Chakra – Solar Plexus – Yellow – “Manipura”
4th Chakra – Heart – Green – “Anahata”
5th Chakra – Throat – Blue – “Visuddha”
6th Chakra – 3rd Eye – Indigo – “Ajna”
7th Chakra – Crown – Violet – “Sahasrara”
