Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning circle or wheel. In the Hindu language it literally means “wheel of light”, in Greek it is called pneuma, in Polynesian mana, and in Hebrew ruah. Energy is also known as chi, prana, ki, Universal life force, God, Supreme Being. The chakras are a healing conduit through which energy flows from the Universe to the physical body. The chakras are the body’s power centers or transformers that take in and distribute energy. Chakras connect to the spine from the front, back, top and base, creating a pathway to nourish and maintain electrical energy balance of the entire body.
Generally, there are considered to be seven major chakra centers. Tibetan literature identifies six chakras, while Pranic Healing recognizes eleven major chakras. There are 122 smaller, minor chakras that are commonly used in Acupuncture, along with pathways that are referred to as meridians. These meridians are the body’s energy channels that transfer prana to and from the chakras and nearby organs and parts of the body.
Each of the seven traditional chakras has a physical, a creative, and a celestial component. In addition, each chakra has its own purpose or function based upon the area of consciousness that it influences. Each chakra has a purpose, or a “prime directive” related to the body's organs and systems. The chakras or energy vortices have identified with them individual colors that are detected in a person’s aura. These colors that appear in a person’s aura are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and white with variations and shades.
