The Seven Major Chakras
Life is energy. We are energy. It sounds like I’m trying to convince myself but really, I just want my fair share. Chakras are our personal storehouses and transmitters of this energy. The word chakra is from the Indo-European language, Sanskrit, and means “circle or wheel of light”. Universal energy flows from the earth through our chakras (our transmitters) from the root chakra, and out through our upper chakras. Much like the process of photosynthesis, whereby the plant absorbs the energy from the sun, feeding the roots, with the energy moving back up the plant, resulting in growth – often in the form of beautiful flowers!
Each chakra is associated with a color, sound vibration (hertz, scale notes):
Chakra Color Musical Note Hertz
Root Red C 252 cps (cycles per second)
Sacral Orange D 283 cps
Solar Plexus Yellow E 322 cps
Heart Green F 348 cps
Throat Blue G 376 cps
Brow (Third Eye) Indigo A 452 cps
Crown Violet B 480 cps
In some yoga disciplines, they link the seven major chakras to a cycle of seven year time periods. Starting at your birth which corresponds with the root chakra and working forward completing the cycle at 49 years of age with the crown chakra. The cycle then begins again with a higher plateau of enlightenment:
The following Biopulsar images and analysis were taken 5 years apart: the 1st in 2006 and the second in 2011.
The Root Chakra
If you look back at the 2nd Biopulsar image/analysis, my root chakra at the time the information was gathered, was functioning at 27%, when it should be functioning between 45% and 65%. UNDERACTIVE! Okay – so what now?! The woman who provided the analysis for me, provided me with some great suggestions for activating my root chakra. This, combined with information that I drew from my books and from various web sites, provided me with an arsenal for kick-starting my root energy center! Now let me just mention, that I have always approached life with a healthy dose of skepticism. The introduction of chakra’s into my belief system was no different. I would estimate that for the past, roughly 16 years or so, I have gradually put more weight into the whole idea, as my personal experiences and investigations have allowed me to let go of doubt and see the reality that we are largely beings of energy and light. That being said, this is not the 1st time in the last few years, that I have been told that my root chakra is not functioning at full capacity. I had the pleasure of having a session with a woman who performs reiki in combination with the use of crystal bowls (sound massage). I will go more into that topic later. She told me during our session, that I had very little energy working around my root area. I can honestly say that I was not surprised then, nor more recently, that this was so. In order for myself to better understand why, other than intuitively, that this was a common occurrence for me, this time I dug my heels in to investigate the why’s, what’s and how I could change it and amp that root!
