7 centers of energy

Chakra is a Sanskrit word and means "wheel". A wheel that spins around its own axis and can spin fast or slowly. A chakra will spin in relation to the energy level of your system. Where will you find these chakras? They exist within us all. In the same way that we have a physical body we also have a subtile body. Our chakras are parts of a large network of subtile energies.

Today we know that living cells from humans, animals and plants give off invisible energies. Simple groups of living tissue issue a sort of light (aura) that can be seen on a Kirlian photo. Specialized groups of cells that make up physical organs create more organized energy patterns. The human body's system consists of sensory, breathing, circulation, digestion, reproduction and secretion. There are six corresponding chakras for these bodily functions. The brain and the whole being also has one chakra, making a total of 7 major chakras. These chakras are situated at the top of the head, forehead, throat, heart, solar plexus, the navel and at the bottom of the pelvis.

Every chakra has a corresponding organ in our physical system. The root chakra belongs together with the large intestine and the rectum. It also has a certain influence on the function of the kidneys. The navel chakra belongs to the reproduction system, the testicles and ovaries and also the urinary bladder and kidneys. The solar plexus chakra is in relation to the liver, gall bladder, stomach, spleen and the small intestine. The heart chakra belongs to the heart and the arms.
