7 Major Chakras
The location of the 7 major Chakras corresponds to major nerve plexuses of the physical body or nerve ganglia along the spinal column. It is also no coincidence that the locations of these same Chakras correspond to glands of our endocrine system. Each chakra metabolizes energy at a particular frequency and rate and thus has been observed by clairvoyants to have color associated with invisible colored light (Fig. 3).
To clairvoyants, the Chakras look like energy vortices or cyclones that appear to act as conduits for (Universal) Energy to enter and exit our body (Fig. 2). The chakras open up to a few feet beyond our body with their tips connected to our spine, which in turn acts as a main power conduit running the length of our body. It is thus believed that the chakras vitalize our Energy Body and therefore our physical body.
1st Chakra - Root/Base Chakra (Muladhara)
Location: Bottom of the spine (coccyx)
Aspect of life: Foundation, balance, grounding, security
Psychic/Energy aspect: Kundalini
Balance in life is the key to having a healthy root chakra. It gives indication on the foundation of our lives and also how secure we feel as a person.
It is also associated with the general physical functioning and physical sensations (pain and pleasure) of the body. The Kundalini is also believed to reside here.
2nd Chakra – Sacral/Spleen/Pelvic Chakra (Svadisthana)
Aspect of life: Expression
Psychic/Energy aspect: Clairsentience
It also intersects to the “Lower Dan Tien” in the Chinese system of Qi (Chi) and meridiens and is an important energy store of Qi.
Those who have highly developed sacral chakras usually show the psychic ability clairsentience ie ability to feel energy.
3rd Chakra – Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
Aspect of life: Empowerment, Self, Identity, Confidence, Ego.
Psychic/Energy aspect: Energy source
It is associated with our self-identity and empowerment. People who have a strong self-identity and confidence usually have bright Solar Plexus. Especially those who have learnt how to empower themselves and also that of others. People who subject themselves to the control of others (eg parents or lovers) usually have blocked chakras. A healthy ego usually means a healthy Solax Plexus. However, those who are too egotistical will have hampered Solar Plexus.
You can consider it as the Sun of your body and is amongst the easiest place for you to manifest energy in the body. It is no surprise then that this is the place where stress and frustration manifests itself. This is the reason why those who are stressed often get gastric. As the blockages after the digestive systems which the Solar Plexus govern energetically.
4th Chakra – Heart Chakra (Anahata)
Aspect of life: Love, Compassion.
Psychic/Energy aspect: Clairempathy
Loving people have beautiful hearts that radiate Light & Love endlessly. Such people usually have the psychic ability of Clairempathy which enables them to feel how another person is feeling emotionally.
Aspect of life: Truth, Vocal expression
Psychic/Energy aspect: Conviction charisma
Those who live their lives in Truth will often have strong Throat chakras that enable them to convince people at ease.
6th Chakra – Third eye/Brow Chakra (Ajna)
Aspect of life: Perception
Psychic/Energy aspect: Clairvoyance
To develop such, one must be able to have an open mind and perception that is not limited. It is also important that one is not stubborn and insist only one's perception/take of Truth.
7th Chakra – Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
Aspect of life: Wisdom, spirituality
Psychic/Energy aspect: Claircognizance
Those who cultivate of wisdom and/or spirituality will have highly developed Crown chakras that give them 6th sense, intuition or what we call Claircognizance - ie clear knowing.
Each major chakra on the front of the body is paired with its counterpart on the back of the body (Fig. 4) with the exception of the 1st and 7th chakra. The 1st (root) chakra opens downwards while the 7th (crown) chakra opens upwards. However Chakras 1 and 7 may be considered to be paired because they are the open-ended points of the main vertical power current that runs along the spine. All the major chakras terminate at or point to the spine. The spine carries the highest concentration of nerves outside the brain and serves as the information and energy “expressway” of the body. The major Chakras act as conduits interexchanging energy between the spine and the universe and, together with the spine play an important part in our Energy Body.
Not all the major Chakras function optimally (in fully open state) in most adults. Given the important roles of the chakras, it is in our interest to ensure that they are open and functioning properly as much as possible. Closed, distorted, or defective chakras will result in illness and dis-ease. Simple tests will show us how well our chakras are functioning. Thereafter, we can place or wear suitable stones and crystals to balance and activate the chakras.
In addition to the 7 major Chakras , there are minor chakras in our body. While not as large and important as the major chakras, they too have their role to play in our physical and energy body.
