The Seven Major Chakras and Transpersonal Chakras
| The Chakra
Chakra are described or seen as vortexes (spinning wheels) of energy which receive, regulate and disperse the universal energies we need to function. The may also be perceived as flames or flowers or cones or as pulsating energy. Chakra are real but the descriptions are spiritual metaphor.
Through the chakra we are able to give, receive & sense energy. Each chakra vibrates at a different frequency and is associated with a particular color. There are seven main chakra in the etheric layer of the aura and many lesser minor energy points. These permeate the entire aura on all planes. There are also additional chakra and other energy formations on each level of the aura.
All beings animals and even Planets, Galaxies ,etc. have Chakras or equivalent energy centers but this text will discuss the human Aura and chakras.
Chakra is the Sanskrit word for moving wheel, the chakra are present in the energy body and extend into related locations of the physical body. There are traditionally seven major chakra and these function as pathways for energy to be taken in, metabolized and sent to the major nerve center nearest each one. The energy and information that is brought into and processed by the chakra and aura is a major unacknowledged source of fuel for our physical, emotional, mental, intuitive and spiritual existence.
Many more chakra and energy forms or organs exist at different vibration frequencies within the aura. Our focus now will be on the traditional seven major chakras. Those most often described are those as seen on the etheric or first and most easily perceived level of the energy body .
The chakra located along the line of the
column are composed of high frequency energy strands. The
spiritual eye perceives these as light. The life force is
channeled to the
physical body and its organs and enters the body through
the chakra. Energy travels throughout the entire being
along the nadis and meridians, a network of psychic
or channels of ascending , descending and spiraling energy. These
include the ida and the pingala nadis and follow the
autonomic nervous system along the spinal
Chakras correlate to a certain extent with major acupuncture points along the governing vessel meridian of acupuncture. These seven major chakras are connected together by three major nadis which parallel each other. The middle nadi is called sushana and it has neutral characteristics it is the channel of ascent, and the power which sustains our evolution and guides us, consciously or unconsciously, towards higher awareness. The nadi on the left is the ida nadi which has yin characteristics and relates to our past, emotions, desires, affectivity, memories, habits and conditioning. On the other side of sushana is the pingala nadi which has yang qualities. These relate to our actions and planning, to physical and mental activity and the sense that we are individuals, separate from the other. The pattern of movement inspired the symbol of the caduceus which to this day is a symbol of medicine.
The degree of chakra activity depends on a combination
physical, emotional, mental and spiritual development of the individual.
In general the front aspects of the chakra correlate to
emotional function, the back to our will function, and the top
chakra to our reason and intuitive and spiritual functions.

We are spiritual beings composed of energy. We are dynamic and interactive on the aura level with all other beings This contributes to effects within our own energy systems.
The most important change happening at this time is the unification of the energy body which has evolved to work together much more than in the past and the increasing awareness of the higher frequency layers of the self. I do offer a chakra unification attunement which can be called in by intention.
These pages have a general summary of the
locations and elements associated with each chakra. There are
minor different ways that people define each chakra,

have always been pretty consistent. The base chakra extends down
and the crown chakra extends up. The chakra in between have vortexes
both to the front of the body and to the back.
