In the spiritual movement the word Chakra pops up quite a bit. That's fine if you know what it means. Pretty confusing if you don't. The following is a short explanation of what the Chakra System is all about.
The Human Energy Field or Aura is an energetic, multi-dimensional field that surrounds penetrates, and is the human body. It has rivers of energy called meridians that nourish every organ and cell in our bodies. These rivers are supplied by seven cone shaped, spinning vortexes of energy called chakras (pronounced "Shock-ra"). These chakras, in turn, collect energy from the Universal Energy Field that is all around us.
The seven chakras carry the colors of the rainbow spectrum. The Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine carries the color red. The Sacral Chakra, our creative center, vibrates to the color orange. The Solar Plexus Chakra, our self centeredness, carries the color yellow. The Heart Chakra, our feeling center, resonates with the color green. The Throat Chakra, responsible for our expression, carries the color blue. The Brow Chakra radiates indigo is responsible for our dreams and questioning of spiritual things. And the Crown Chakra radiates a violet or white, the highest vibrational rate in the spectrum.
