Mind & Spirit | 13 July 2017A Guide to the 7 Chakras Share article facebook twitter google pinterest Most people know that we are more than just our physical bodies. We have a certain essence that we can feel and chakras are the key. They are the gateway through which the spirit affects the physical body. They reside along the spinal column and interact with nerve plexuses. There is a lot to uncover about chakras and how they can help you connect your spirit and physical body. If you are looking to connect more with your spiritual side, learning about chakras can help. Get started with The Key to the Chakras. The Seven Chakras In the most popularly accepted system, there are seven chakras that span vertically from your tailbone to the top of your head. From the bottom up, they are the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow, and crown. Revolving Doors The word “chakra” comes from the yoga related language, Sanskrit, and it means “wheel” or “spinning disk.” This is a pretty apt name for these energy centers since each one spins like a mini-vortex. Still, it may serve you better to think of each chakra as a revolving door. Just as revolving doors let people in and out, your chakras allow energy to move in and out of your body. They continually take energy in, assimilate it, and send it back out. In order for you to thrive, these doors must be healthy and open, and your energy flowing. When it is, you can live fully, taking in all that life has to offer and expressing all that you have to give. Energetic Frequencies Each chakra corresponds to a different energetic frequency, with the root being the densest and the crown the lightest. And each one relates to different aspects of your life—for example, wealth, power, sexuality, love, communication, psychic ability, and connection to the Divine. The lower, more slowly vibrating chakras (one, two, and three) relate to your physical existence, while the more quickly vibrating upper chakras (five, six, and seven) relate to your spiritual experience. They are associated with your highest purpose—your psychic abilities, and your connection to the Divine, respectively. The heart is the sweet balance point of your chakra field, the bridge between your physical and spiritual aspects. When your chakras are truly balanced and you are in your most energetically healthy state, you are naturally in a state of love.
