A Chakra is a spinning vertex of energy created within overselves by the interpenetration of consciousness and the physical body. Through this combination, chakras become centers of activity for the reception, assimilation & transmission of life energies.
In this system there are seven major Chakras arranged vertically along the spine, starting the base of spine & ending at the top of the head. In the physical body this seven chakras correspond the major nerve ganglia, glands of the endocrine system, and various bodily process, such as breathing, digesting and procreating.
The body is a vehicle of consciousness. The Chakras can be seen as the wheels of life that carry this vehicle through its evolutionary journey towards enlightenment within us. This wheels are like gears, each one appropriate for different activities or stages of life. As we open our chakras, we become more conscious and more fully alive. Our journey becomes smoother, more productive, yet more exciting as we become more fully who we are.
