What are Chakras

What are chakras? A chakra is an energy vortex through which energy is transferred from the Universal Life Force to nourish one’s physical body via energy lines (the Nadis) and into the nervous system, endocrine system, blood system and finally into every cell of one’s physical body.

To function properly a chakra must be open otherwise blockages will occur resulting in imbalances which can lead to physical pain. The energy must be able to flow unhindered.

Each chakra consists of a varying number of small rotating vortices, spinning and resonating at certain frequencies, which increase upwards from the root/base chakra to the crown chakra. The frequency resonates, and corresponds to certain colours in the visible spectrum.

The chakras are connected to the main “power line” running along the spine, from the crown chakra down to the base chakra. The crown and base chakras can be thought as being paired, whilst the third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus and sacral have a front and rear paired aspect. The front aspects are related to one’s personal feelings and inner-self (world), the rear to personal will and outer world.

Together the physical chakras and the transpersonal chakras make up the chakric column or chakric system.

Physical Chakras

There are seven major chakras that are related to the physical body, which are located on one’s torso, and numerous minor chakras including one on each palm of one’s hands, one on each sole of one’s feet, one each side of the face, close to the ears, and one behind each knee.

The 7 major chakras are also present within the 7 subtle bodies located in the same positions as the physical body, becoming broader and vibrating at a higher frequency as they progress through the subtle bodies.

Transpersonal Chakras

There are four transpersonal chakras which are located in one’s energy fields and are the link to the spiritual parts of one’s being, and the Divine/Source.

They are the doorways through which energy can be transferred from the physical, 3rd dimension to the higher dimensions, and vice versa.

There are three located above one’s head and one below one’s feet.

Transpersonal Chakras

There are four transpersonal chakras which are located in one’s energy fields and are the link to the spiritual parts of one’s being, and the Divine/Source.

They are the doorways through which energy can be transferred from the physical, 3rd dimension to higher dimensions, and vice versa.

There are three located above our head and one below our feet.

Causal Vortex

The causal vortex chakra is located 3 – 4 inches above / behind the crown chakra.

When activated and developed it keeps one’s connection to one’s soul. It helps to keep the mind clear and focussed, thus allowing for soul input / ideas, or intuition to flow freely.

Soul Star

The soul star is located 6 inches above and behind the top of the head. It is the interconnecting link between the body chakras, causal vortex and stellar gateway.

When activated one can feel the connection and love of all things. The soul star acts as a bridge between spirit and matter (i.e. physical). It slows down the high frequency energy of “Spirit” to a frequency that can be integrated into the human consciousness.

Stellar Gateway

The stellar gateway is located about 12 inches above and behind the head.

When activated it allows the two-way transference of energy from “Spirit”/ higher dimensional consciousness into the human consciousness.

Earth Star

The earth star is located about 6 inches below the feet.

It is the vortex that connects one to Mother Earth. It allows the energies to interact and thus keeps one grounded within the physical, 3rd dimensional realm. It anchors one’s subtle bodies, therefore keeping them aligned to one’s physical body and the magnetic core of the Earth.
