The Chakra Points.
Energy exists in all things in the known universe from human beings to
the chair that you sit on. There are seven main points in the body where
energy is obvious, these are called Chakras. The Chakra Points, to some
degree, determine how you feel. Chakras are like vortices of energy that
spin both from the front of our bodies and the back. These energy centres
can get blocked and sluggish at times, therefore making certain aspects
of our life or physical body feel the same way. They can also spin too
fast and become overactive, this in turn can also cause imbalances on
various levels. Therefore, what we strive to achieve is a nicely balanced
chakra system, so that each centre is working at its optimum level for
us to feel healthy and harmonious in all aspects.
It is important then to realise that you may not need to energise certian
chakras or indeed that others will need far more enrgy at certain times.
A qualified healer will be able to perceive what is going on in each of
your chakras and would allow energy to flow (or work with colours, crystals
and sound according to need for your highest good) By using your own intuition
you can get a fairly good idea of what is going on in your chakra system
and work with this accordingly. If in doubt seek further advice from someone
that is experienced in this field. (See Sharon and Brian in the Directory
section for Healing)
With a well balanced Chakra system you will feel fit, healthy and harmonious.
When they are not balanced you may feel disorientated, uncomfortable and
The Chakras can also help you to communicate with the spirit realm. By
learning to open your Chakras you push your energy level out, which 'opens'
you for spiritual communication, but you must remember to close your Chakras
because staying open too long will cause unbalancing.
Each Chakra works best with certain colours. There are seven major Chakra
points in our bodies and they are situated as so:-
- Red - is the BASE, situated at the base of the spine. It is like the
roots of a tree that bury themselves in the very heart of the Earth.
- Orange - is the SACRAL, situated about two inches below the navel.
A mix of red and yellow, the Earth and the Sun. This is a mixture that
benefits both mind (the Sun) and body (the Earth).
- Yellow - is the SOLAR PLEXUS, situated at the upper stomach (about
four fingers width above the navel). It works to influence your mental
attitude, enabling you to be good natured, contented and happy in whatever
you choose to do.
- Green - is the HEART, situated in the middle of chest. The colour
of growth and renewal. Green is a good balance between mind and body,
it brings serenity and calmness both to you and those you come in contact
- Blue - is the THROAT, situated near bottom of the throat. Blue is
a very strong, healing colour. It brings calm, peace and a love of both
freedom and togetherness.
- Purple - is the BROW, situated in the middle of the forehead (or slightly
lower/between eyebrows). This deeply spiritual colour is linked to the
Pineal Gland in the brain which is said to be a sensory organ. It enables
the individual to see, hear, write and work with Spirit Guides.
- Violet/White/Silver/Gold - is the CROWN chakra, situated at the top
of the head. This is linked to the Pituitary Gland that secretes hormones
to other glands of the body. It also symbolises purity of mind and body
and is the strongest link to the spirit world.

Chakras & Colours
If we integrate the various colours that relate to each chakra, either
through healing, visualization, clothes we wear, crystals etc.. we can
go a long way to bringing about a balance within these areas. Below is
a list of various colours and how bringing them into our related chakras
can enhance certain traits/emotions and aid certain physical issues.
RED - grounding, stability, stamina,
motivation, self - confidence, purpose, passion, excitement
ORANGE - joy, respect for oneself,
release (of stored negativity), creativity, cheer, pick-me-up, happiness
YELLOW - cleansing, cheer, happiness,
upliftment, ego, will(power), energy, focus, enthusiasm, self worth
GREEN - balance, harmony, peace,
abundance, love yourself, release (heart related emotions), growth/new
BLUE - release of physical tension,
communication, peace, healing, honesty, calming, cleansing, express
- wisdom, protection, vision, responsibility, understanding, seeking,
WHITE - clarity, cleansing, clearing
negativity, universal energy, has all colours within it, pureness
PINK - sensitivity, compassion,
unconditional love, nurturing
VIOLET - power, transformation,
spiritual growth, freedom, cleansing, knowing (clairvoyance)
BLACK - absorbs negative, stability, protection, power, grounding,
TURQUOISE - healing on all levels,
communication, immune system,
There are a multitude of ways to open your Chakras (energy centres).
Some people can 'open' (tune in on a spiritual level) instantly, for others
it can take several minutes. If you follow the simple
meditation script, you will notice that it takes you through the seven
Chakra colours from red to white. Visualising these colours going through
the body will in turn open each Chakra. You can visualise the colours
as lights, mists or whatever you feel comfortable with.
Once you have worked through these you will find it easier to work on
a spiritual level. Don't worry if it doesn't feel natural or easy at first,
as with all things the more you practice the easier it will become.
To cleanse the Chakras yourself (as opposed to using one of the crystals
which can perform this task automatically) you can visualise yourself
under a waterfall or in a clear pool, again, whatever you are comfortable
Once you have finished balancing and cleansing your Chakras you must
remember to 'shut down'. If you don't close your energy centres you will
begin to feel unwell and fuzzy headed. Closing the Chakras is the reverse
process of opening them i.e. visualising white light enveloping you from
the top of your head and slowly moving down to red, the final colour,
at the base of your spine. Normally you would image yourself being wrapped
in a red cloak or something similar in the final stage.
Chakra and Crystals.
The Chakras work well with crystals. By holding and receiving the energy
of the crystals, you can open, close or balance your Chakras. Every crystal
performs a different job so it's worth checking with someone who knows
before you decide which one is going to be best for you to use on each
occasion. Here is a list of some of the crystals and the Chakras they
best relate to:
- Base - Garnet, Bloodstone, Ruby, Red Jasper, Black Tourmaline, Smokey
- Sacral - Gold Topaz, Coral, Orange Calcite, Amber, Citrine, Carnelian,
Peach Aventurine. Moonstone
- Solar plexus- Amber, Gold, Gold Calcite, Citrine Gold Tigers Eye.
- Heart - Chryoprase, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Kunzite, Green & Pink
Tourmaline, Green Jade, Green Adventurine.
- Throat- Blue Topaz, Celestite, Turquoise Chrysocolla Sodalite, Lapis
Lazuli, Aquamarine, Kyanite Blue lace Agate
- Brow - Quartz Crystal, Azurite, Lapis Lazuli Amethyst, Sapphire and
- Crown - Purple Flourite, Quartz Crystal, Selenite, Diamond, Alexandrite,
There are also some crystals that can help balance, open, close and ground
such as Boji Stones
