The Chakras

Chakras and Energy

"We have certain centres called Chakras in the body. The Chakras are nothing but energy-centres which whirl in some direction as water whirls in a river. Chakra is a wheel or circular motion. They move in a spiral shape. They are not physical; but psycho-physical and psychological. These Chakras are neither in the mind nor in the body; they are in the astral body."

~ Swami Sivananda

Chakras are first mentioned in the Vedas, the ancient Hindu texts. Some writers believe the knowledge is even earlier, from the Aryan tradition that predates Hinduism. Chakras are also linked to Plato, to Teutonic thought, to the Kabbalah and the Tao.

Chakra Meditations

Books

"There are seven power centers in your body, called chakras. The state of each chakra reflects the health of a particular area of your body. It also reflects your psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Every thought and experience you've ever had in your life gets filtered through these chakra databases. Each event is recorded into your cells. In other words, "your biography becomes your biology." When chakra energy is blocked or misdirected, emotional and physical illness can arise."

Anatomy of the Spirit

Dr. Myss's "model of the body's seven centers of spiritual and physical power, in which she synthesizes the ancient wisdom of three spiritual traditions-the Hindu chakras, the Christian sacraments, and the Kabbalah's Tree of Life-to demonstrate the seven stages through which everyone must pass in the search for higher consciousness and spiritual maturity."
