Chakra's & Their Meanings

A chakra comes from the Sanskrit word meaning spinning wheel

A common system of chakras outlines that there are 7 main energy vortices.
According to ancient texts a chakra is where 216 nadis / meridians (energy channels) cross over each other, forming energy spirals.

There are thousands of minor chakras eg. on, hands, feet, ears etc .

The 7 chakra system can be useed to illustrate many interested things - see below

Depending on who you read the chakras may be assigned different colours - don't miss the point - the colours on the highter chakras just emphasise a change in vibration (frequency)

The higher chakras are not necessarily more valuable than the lower ones- just higher in morallity

Balancing Chakras with Sound & Chanting

In my opinion if you want to feel balanced, charged and happy - therei snothing easier, quicker, cheaper and more natural than chant some sacred sounds.

This really works, try it!

Edgar Cayce's mantra:


Have an open heart when doing this

Don't try with half effort - open up - let the sounds flow out through you
