The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to meeting points of subtle energy channels called nadi. These channels carry Prana (life force) throughout the subtle energy body keeping us vibrant and healthy. There are seven primary Chakras which move along the spine from the tailbone to the crown. These swirling wheels of energy correspond to nerve plexus in the physical body. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of well-being. Each Chakra controls a specific area of our physical, energetic and emotional body. As we bring attention to each Chakra thru breath, color visualizations, mantras, and clearing statements we can illuminate fears that may be preventing energy from flowing freely. When we let go of fear by opening and balancing the Chakras we can begin to see our life's purpose clearly.
Chakra Clarity is like having a clear glass of water in front of you. As the Sun shines into the glass you see a rainbow refracted onto the wall. The glass of water is you; your body, your mind and spirit. The sunlight is the white light of the Divine. The rainbow is the energy of your True Nature spread out into the world. As we step into the rainbow - a place of clear-seeing - we see that security, gratitude, happiness, unconditional love, peace, intuition, and source energy is the reality. Everything else is an illusion. When you feel negative emotions come up, remember this illusion. Bring yourself back to your breath and see yourself lit up in rainbow colors.
