What are Chakras

What Are Chakras?

Chakra is the Sanskrit word meaning "Wheel of Light". Chakras are power centers of energy located throughout the body. Each one has a specific physical and psychological/spiritual correspondence. The seven major chakras are shown in the diagram below. Blocked energy means a person cannot efficiently utilize energy at that Chakra point. Therefore it is important to open the chakras to increase the energy flow. The better the flow, the healthier the person. Reiki creates the opportunity to open blocked chakras. 


Root or 1st Chakra:  Relates to grounding and security; governs the spinal column, bones, teeth and blood. Color is red.


Sacral or 2nd Chakra:  Relates to emotions and passions; governs the reproductive system, adrenals, kidneys, bladder and all liquids. Color is orange.


Solar Plexus or 3rd Chakra:  Relates to one's personal power and will; governs the stomach, liver, gall bladder, spleen, pancreas and nervous system. Color is yellow.


Heart or 4th Chakra:  Relates to love, compassion and community; governs the heart, thymus, blood and circulatory system. Color is green.


Throat or 5th Chakra:  Relates to the ability to communicate and create; governs bronchial and vocal apparatus, lungs, thyroid and alimentary canal. Color is blue.
