Chakras

A simple overview of the energy centers in the human body also known as chakras is provided as a point of reference.

Seventh chakra (crown) is our connection with the Spirit/God.  It contains information on how we show ourselves to the world (our persona) and the energy of understanding.

Sixth chakra (brow) is where we experience our intuitive and analytical energy.  Here we see, imagine and have knowledge. It is from here that we see ourselves in the world relative to others.

Fifth chakra (throat) is our communication space, how we express ourselves.

Fourth chakra (heart) is where we give and receive love.  It vibrates the energy of affinity for others and the Self.

Third chakra (solar plexus) is our core personal power.  It is where we experience self-worth and activate will (how life force energy is manifested into physical form).

Second chakra (sacral/abdomen) is where our creation energy lives.  It contains our emotions, sexual energy and capacity for manifestation.

First chakra (root/base of spine) is where we ground to the earth.  It holds the energies of safety, security and our basic food/shelter survival needs.

A deep look at the chakras can be found in Anodea Judith’s work and book Wheels of Life.
