The chakra system - our 7 major energy centers

Posted Sep 14 2008 4:44pm

Did you know that you have an energy system that has seven major centers? These energy centers are known as chakras. Chakras are thought of as whirling vortices of energy. Each chakra is associated with certain characteristics and a specific color. There are areas along the spine where the molecules of emotion are most densely populate. Interestingly, these areas correlate with the chakra centers.

The first chakra, or root chakra, is located at the base of the spine and it's color is red. It is associated with the sense of safety and security and it connects us with the earth. The second chakra is located in the area of your reproductive organs and is orange. It is the center of creativity, sexuality, and relationships. The third chakra, located just above the belly button, is the center of self-esteem and personal power. It's color is yellow. The heart chakra is the fourth energy center. This chakra is green and is our center of love and intimacy. The fifth chakra, with the color blue, is located around the throat and is our communication center. Next is the brow chakra which is indigo. It is associated with intuition and imagination. Finally, the crown chakra is the energy center that connects us with the Divine or source energy. It's color is violet.

To help balance the chakras and enhance health and wellness, simply visualize each one filled with the appropriate color. Start at the 1st chakra and make your way to the 7th. The colors go in the order of the rainbow. Think of the acronym ROY G BIV. Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet. Do this imagery a couple of times each day for the best results.
