Chakra

There is a tremendous amount of information about chakras. This is just a synopsis to help with your awareness of them.

Chakra is a Sanskrit work and means 'wheel' or 'turning'.

We have seven major chakras and these are in line with the endocrine system.

Each chakra emanates a colour (the colours of the rainbow).

  • At the bottom of the spine is the base or root chakra
  • In the belly under the naval is the sacral chakra
  • In the stomach under the rib cage is the solar plexus chakra
  • In the centre of the chest is the heart chakra
  • In the throat is the throat chakra
  • In the forehead between the eyes is the third eye or brow chakra
  • At the top of the head is the crown chakra

The chakra system is how the body deals with currents of energy.
