The purpose of chakra
energy healing is to align and balance the Chakra system, which is one of our
body’s electro-magnetic energy systems. It is comprised of seven spinning
vortices of energy running from the root chakra at the base of the spine all
the way up the midline of the body to the crown chakra on the top of the head.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word from the Hindu system literally
translated as “circular motion” but most often translated as wheel or vortex.
The Chakras represent different levels of consciousness, having to do with
survival, creativity, identity, love, expression, comprehension, and
transcendence. Each of these energy centers has a special task and they all
carry specific information.

Chakra energy healing is needed when one or more of the chakras
get out of whack due to low vibrations from worry, fear, anger or other issues.
That can deplete the energy of the person in general. When the chakras are
aligned and free from negative emotions they spin vibrantly and communicate
with each other and we experience peace and contentment.

The following is a brief description of each chakra, including
where on the body it is located and what type of emotions are stored there.
Also listed for each is a color, although when I see them in my mind’s eye each
one contains a variety of hues, not just one solid color. What is listed is below
is the most predominant color for that chakra.

·        
Chakra 1 Red/Base of
the Spine. The root chakra is tied to your survival instincts, and your
connection to earth. Comfort and contentment with our earthly lives is rooted
here. When our first chakra is working optimally, we feel grounded.

·        
Chakra 2
Orange/Beneath Navel. The sacral chakra carries lots of emotions. It is located
in the reproductive region, so with that it carries the energy of creation —
not just of a new life, but any creative expression. It is also tied to
relationships and sex, power and money.

·        
Chakra 3
Yellow/Between Navel and Chest. The solar plexus chakra is located right in the
“core” of our being. It is where we carry our feelings of self-worth and
confidence, or lack thereof. It is also where we experience feelings such as
“butterflies” or “listening to your gut.”

·        
Chakra 4
Green/Heart.This is the heart chakra. It is here that we hold our feelings of
love and forgiveness. It radiates warmth, compassion and connection with
others. Or, if it is not working up to par, it is because we’ve got stuck
feelings of heartache and unforgiveness. It’s the hallway between the upper and
lower chakras.

·        
Chakra 5 Blue/Throat.
The throat chakra has a lot to do with speaking up for yourself. It is located
in the throat/neck area and is related to your voice and your communication
with others. It also houses concerns about others not hearing what you say, and
your perception of your public representation of yourself.

·        
Chakra 6 Indigo/Brow,
middle of forehead. Also called the third eye because it represents our
spiritual sight. It helps us to see the big picture of situations in our lives.
Through this we see much more than our five senses pick up.

·        
Chakra 7 Violet, Gold,
White/Top of the head. Referred to as the crown chakra, this is our connection
to “the Divine,” which may mean different things for different people. Both
Chakra 6 and Chakra 7, when clear and functioning ideally, contribute to
intuition and inspiration.
