CHAKRASThe word chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel. It is a wheel-like spinning vortex that interpenetrates the physical body, with the outer ends of each vortex forming a specific layer of the auric field. The whirling circular motion forms a cavity or vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibrational level. It is then processed and returned to the auric field. The major chakras of the human body are the seven chakras that are aligned along the spinal column. Secondary chakras of importance are located in the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet, and at major joints in the arms and legs.
For the people of antiquity - Egyptians, Chinese, Hindus, Greeks, Romans, and aboriginals of many lands - the chakras were an integrated part of daily lives. As these ancient civilizations were conquered, vast libraries of knowledge were destroyed. Only a few remnants of their information on the chakra system have survived - either through the preservation of ancient texts by sacred priesthoods, or orally from generation to generation, as in the traditions of many aboriginal peoples.
In any study of the anatomy of the aura it is important to understand the significance of the chakra system. The chakras exist on all levels of the aura and serve as linking mechanisms between the auric field and the physical body as well as linking mechanisms between the different levels of the auric field itself.
It is usually believed that the three lower chakras correlate to basic primary needs - those of survival, procreation, and will - whereas the four higher chakras are concerned with our psychological makeup -defining love, communication, and knowledge, and connection with the spiritual realms.
The Seven Major Chakras
We must balance this chakra before moving on to the others. Otherwise our growth will be without roots, i.e., ungrounded
Other Names: Root, base, muladhara, Kundalini (Sanskrit)
Situated: base of spine and the pubic bone (but encompasses genitals and reproductive organs)

Governs: perception of the physical world, willpower, motivation and intent
Here we encounter change, for without change we cannot grow.
Other Names: Sacral, sexual, svadhisthana (Sanskrit)
Situated: behind and just below the navel
Area of consciousness: emotional Change in that we now moving beyond our understanding of ourselves and realize the awareness of others - desire arises and with it our emotions and sexuality.
Key Words: difference, separation, change, duality, and movement
Physical organ association: spleen ( Peyer's Patches) as well as the kidneys and bladder

The task of this chakra is to integrate and balance the realms of spirit and mind with our physical body (matter).
Other Names: Heart, anahata (Sanskrit)
Situated: midway between shoulder blades (over the sternum)
Area of Consciousness: astral body This is the first level beyond 3-dimensional matter. Here we have the bridge between the dimensions of matter and the dimensions of spirit. Although we may refer to the "lower chakras" as being concerned with mankind, and the "upper chakras" as being concerned with spirituality and God, each chakra is no less important than the other. For instance, the first chakra has a number of frequencies (all within the Red vibration), ranging from very low to very high. The goal is to rise above a chakra's lower frequencies into its higher ones.
