What are chakras?
Chakras are wheels or vortexes of energy
in the human aura, or energy field. Chakra means wheel in Sanskrit. Life force energy -- chi, ki, or prana -- flows in and out of us through the chakras. Each chakra has an area of life that its energy affects particularly. If a chakra is closed down or out of balance, the life energies in that area will be affected negatively. Open, strong and balanced chakras make those areas of our life energies better and promote health and healing.
Certain colors tend to be related to each chakra.
The energy of the wavelength of the color light acts with the energy of the chakra synergistically. There is some blurring and differences between what colors go with what chakras. I think of this as the difference of our perspective changing our view on the colors we perceive to go with the particular chakra.
is always in motion, interweaving and interconnecting. Many times working with multiple chakras via energy work, wearing or carrying related crystals, using related stones, or other methods, brings a synergy that working with a single chakra could not as easily reach.
The major chakras are generally counted from the bottom up, as the energy rises from the earth plane to the spiritual planes.
