Youve probably heard about the chakras from time to time, or received a reading from someone who mentioned them. But just what are they? Chakras, bright regions of spinning energy, are actually organs of the subtle body. They are living, breathing organs, dynamic and beautiful. Although they energize the physical body, the physical senses do not detect them. People who have developed subtle senses such as clairvoyance (inner vision) or clairaudience (inner hearing) can perceive the chakras and learn by observing them.
Though we can study the chakras one by one, their real magic lies in the way they work together. They are like instruments in an orchestra, or players on a basketball team. Its their teamwork that matters most.
In this article, Ill describe each chakras color, and the way that chakras of certain colors work together. Every color of the rainbow has an opposite. Chakras of opposite color complement each other and team up as partners.
The Root Chakra is red. Located at the base of the spine, it plays a key role in our physical survival and wellness, and forms our primary energetic connection to the earth.
Next is the Sacral Chakra, which is orange and is located in the pelvic area. This chakra governs our creativity and sexuality. It influences our success in relationship, and our financial success as well.
The Solar Plexus Chakra, located near the stomach, is yellow. This chakra reflects our confidence, self-esteem and self-image, and influences our ability to take effective action.
At the center of the chest near the heart you'll find the Heart Chakra, which is green. The Heart Chakra carries our love and reverence for life, and our deepest desire as well.
The Throat Chakra at the base of the neck has the color blue. It reflects our expressiveness and ability to communicate. When this chakra develops at the higher frequencies, it becomes an organ for
The well-known Third Eye Chakra, located in the center of the head, governs our intellect and insightfulness. It has the color violet. When it develops at the higher frequencies, it becomes an organ for clairvoyant vision.
The Crown Chakra, whose color is a luminous white, connects us to the heavens and enables us to perceive the divine.
Three special partnerships occur between chakras of opposite color. The first pair is red and green, the Root and Heart Chakras. Working together, they enable you to bring your hearts desire down to earth and manifest it in the physical realm.
The second pair is orange and blue, the Sacral and Throat Chakras. These two enable you to express yourself creatively and passionately, as in music, poetry, song or dance.
Third we have yellow and violet, the Solar Plexus Chakra and Third Eye. Through these chakras you can acquire deep understanding and broad comprehension. They enable you to learn and to teach.
These three chakra pairs all work together under the auspices of the Crown Chakra. As we go through life, we continually learn and grow. In that process, all seven chakras come into greater alignment and harmony with each other, thus bringing us new levels of richness and joy.
Psychically, the energy you are holding in your chakras can be read.
