My Experience with Chakras

According to the Chopra Center:

The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called Prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive.

Ok good, we have gotten that formal definition out of the way.

Let’s get down to brass tacks as my grandmother would say and find out what’s really going on.

You have seven major chakras and the diagram below shows the name, colour and part of the body that the chakra is located.

If any of your chakras are out of alignment, a disruption of your energy flow may occur and limit your energetic flow.


I will go deeper into the chakras on my blog. Please stay tuned.

It always amazes me how I can tell if a chakra is out of balance with myself and others.

Here is an example:

A good friend of mine who is usually one of the most grounded and pleasant individuals that I know, was annoying me to no end. His energy was aggressive and his tone of voice seemed quite harsh. Because this was not his normal behavior pattern, I just let it roll off of my back. Please take note that I trust my friend and thought that maybe I was being too sensitive, but after about four days, this had to end.

With his permission I began to clear his chakras. When I got to his second chakra, his orange seemed dark and not spinning uniformly. I cleared his orange chakra and got it back into alignment. His remaining chakras were cleared and then I infused them all with Reiki. He stated that he felt calmer. You see, before he was feeling extremely passionately about things to the point his good intentions would have served himself and others had he pulled back some.

There is a balance within ourselves that we all must be aware of. By keeping my chakras clear and spinning properly, it assists me with my sense of security, passion, confidence, love, truth, insight/intuition and connection to God.

Happy spinning Chakras = Happy Life
