word chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel'. If we were
able to 'see' the chakras (as many psychics can do) we would observe a
wheel of energy continuously rotating. Clairvoyants and psychics perceive
chakras as colorful spinning wheels. The chakras begin at the base of the
spine and finish at the top of the head. Though fixed in the central spinal
column they are in pairs, located on both the front and back of the body,
and work through it. The only exception to this is the Root
Chakra (seen as red above), which is a single chakra.
chakra vibrates or rotates at a different speed. The root or first chakra
rotates at the slowest speed, the crown or seventh and highest chakra at
the highest speed. Each chakra can be stimulated by sound. And, each
chakra is stimulated by its own and complimentary color. There are
also special gemstones for that resonate with each chakra, and the gems
can be used to help clear or balance a chakra. The chakra colors are of
the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The
size and brightness of the wheels vary with individual development, emotional
state, physical condition, energy levels, disease, or stress levels.
Is A Healer ...
"Sound stimulates the wheels
of energy called the chakras. Over 7,000 years ago seers in Indian
connected with Spirit and brought down the Bija mantras, one mantra for
each chakra. The chakras affect health and emotions in the region
of the body that they govern. By using the correlating bija mantra,
you can stimulate the chakra to help heal the body, and the emotions to
release. As Above, So Below. What exists etherically will flow
down to the physical body."
In traditional Hatha Yoga
the seven Bija mantras
associated with the chakras are:
LAM (Lum) - for the earth
VAM (Vum) - for the water
RAM (Rum) - for the fire
YAM (Yum) - for the heart
HAM (Hum) - for the throat
AUM (Aum) - for the third
AH (Ahh..) - for the
crown chakra (7)
