Do you have chakras? Does everyone have chakras and not know it? What
are chakras anyway? Chakras are information centers of the soul. Aren't
you relieved? You may have been thinking they are something undesirable.
Chakras are actually wonderful sources of energy and information that
everyone has. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel and they do resemble
a wheel from the front view. Chakras contain an unfathomable amount
of information so you never need to worry about running out of interesting
information once you get in touch with your spiritual information centers.
Chakras are the energy and information centers that you use, as
spirit, to store and access your spiritual information. Oh yes, you
are spirit and you have chakras. Your body is your home for this lifetime.
Yes, you have had other lifetimes, but that is another story. You are
spirit, you have a body, you have lived before, and in every life you
have chakras to use. Your chakras help you keep track of all that you
have created and adopted during your creative sojourns on planet Earth.
Your chakras are storehouses of your information and energy, ready for
you to use to create your life.
Your chakras can be located in relation to your physical body.
In fact, every acupuncture point in the body is a chakra. You need to
first get in touch with the seven main chakras located along your spine
before you focus on all of the others. These main chakras are numbered
one through seven with the first chakra located near the base of your
spine and the seventh chakra located at the top of your head. The second
chakra is located just below your navel and your third chakra is at
your solar plexus. The fourth is located at the sternum near the heart.
The fifth chakra is at the base of your throat and your sixth chakra
is in the center of your head. All of the chakras are lined up with
Each chakra relates to aspects of your creativity as a spiritual
being. For example, your first chakra contains information about how
you relate to the physical world, such as how to keep your body alive
and well with food, housing, clothing, and so forth. It is easy to see
that there is a great deal of creativity in this one area since the
world is full of a variety of ways to relate to survival issues. Different
cultures are extremely varied in their survival techniques, in addition
to the individual interpretations and creativity in relating to the
All of the chakras relate to different aspects of your spiritual
creativity and how you manifest your creativity in the physical world.
The second chakra relates to your sexuality and emotionality, your third
to how you distribute your energies, your fourth to affinity. Your fifth
chakra has your information on communication and your sixth has information
on spiritual sight. Your seventh chakra has your information about how
to be still and know as spirit. All of the chakras contain a variety
of aspects of each of these main focuses and an infinite amount of information
about the topics. For example, the fifth chakra contains five different
aspects of communication.
Now that you know that you have chakras, where they are and what
they relate to, what do you do with them? Use them to get to know yourself.
By focusing on your chakras and the energy and information in each one,
you learn about your creativity as spirit. You learn what you have created
in the body, what you want to keep and what you want to clear. Your
chakras are "the book of you" and are exciting "reading."
You can use them like a guidebook or a road map to negotiate the creative
project called your life.
Getting in touch with the information in your chakras is an exciting
experience. You can even learn to access and consciously control the
energy and information in your chakras. This process is an important
part of awakening as spirit. Every great spiritual teacher has said,
"Know yourself," and getting to know what you have stored
in your chakras is part of that process. Consciously using your chakras
requires discipline, patience and a spiritual perspective. This is a
life-long journey and the ultimate in self-discovery. The process does
take time and attention and is well worth the attention you need to
put on it.
To access the information in your chakras you must learn to meditate.
If you already meditate you need to add the techniques of grounding
and centering in your head to your meditation practices. Grounding is
creating a flow of energy from your first chakra to the center of the
Earth. You center in your head by focusing your bright light as spirit
into the center of your physical head. Grounding connects you to this
physical reality and keeps you and your body safe. Centering in your
head puts you in a neutral control space so you can be in charge of
your creativity. Being grounded and neutral are essential ingredients
to creating a controlled, safe experience while getting to know what
you have in your chakras.
You are spirit, you have chakras. Learn to know yourself and your
wonderful creative abilities by reacquainting yourself with your chakras,
your spiritual information centers. Become the conscious creator of
