There are hundreds of chakra's connected with healing, but we focus on the ones below to clear and to open to the energy that is waiting to be activated Chakra's balancing is the tuning of the body mind and spirit. These Energies can become blocked for a variety of reasons including trauma and negative experiences that have been carried throughout life. Releasing these blocks then creates a healthy flow of pure energy that will then move easily from the lower to the higher chakras bringing activation of healthy energy to each one. This brings a feeling of well being, peace creative energy and more..

Wheels of Life
The seven major chakras have individual functions and purposes. However, the chakra system works best when all the chakras function in concert.
In drawings and painting of chakras the symbols are usually depicted as wheels or lotus flowers. Each chakra will appear separate from one another. But, if you were able to view your chakras energetically you would notice that the chakras will naturally blend or bleed into one another.
Chakras are energy centers with a living pulse. Energy is not static, energy is in constant flux. Chakras not only open and close, they will also expand and retract. When a chakra expands the boundaries separating it from its neighboring chakra/s can become blurred. As the chakras move and interact with one another the colorful imagery might remind you of peering through a kaleidoscope.
It is not unusual for the sacral and root chakras to intermingle and display a brilliant blood-orange color. The heart and throat chakras may merge and display beautiful blue green shades when you are singing from the heart.
When a stressed chakra is shutting down, a healthier chakra will often expand to compensate for the lowering of the whole energy system. The chakras are typically team players. Still, it is not healthy for any one player in a team to pull more than his share of the weight for prolonged periods. Expansion for the sake of picking up the slack will eventually put strain on the relationship. Ultimately, the whole team will suffer. And in the case of your chakras, when the chakras are not functioning together optimally as a healthy team illness and disease manifests.
These Wheels of Light as they are called were first written about 2600 years ago and have been found to be anatomically correct. The first 5 are the five main nerve ganglia of the spinal column where there are nerve ending that form junctions. Nerves from different organs and the parts of the body join the spinal cord.
The other two are the upper and lower areas of the brain.
Each of these chakras are associated with one of the 7 endocrine glands. Each organ, the entire body and its functions are connected to our chakras by the nerves which generate out from them and by the endocrine glands associated with them
Sanskrit Name: Sahasrara
Location: Top of Head
Color: White or Violet
When functioning optimally, the crown chakra allows inner communications with our spiritual nature to take place. The opening in the crown chakra (located in the same area as the soft spot on a baby's head) serves as an entryway wherein the Universal Life Force can enter our bodies and be dispersed downward into the lower six chakras housed below it. This chakra is often depicted as a lotus flower with its petals open to represent spiritual awakening. The crown chakra could also be considered the bottomless well from which intuitive knowledge is drawn. The seventh or crown chakra is located at the top of the head. The Hopi call this energy center kopavi, meaning "the open door" through which higher spiritual knowledge is received. The crown chakra is associated with the pineal gland, the color violet, full enlightenment, and union with the cosmos.
Sanskrit Name: Ajna
The third eye chakra is also called "brow chakra." Our mental calculations and thinking processes are functions of the third eye chakra. We are able to evaluate our past experiences and life patterns and put them into perspective through the wisdom of the third chakra's actions. Our ability to separate reality from fantasy or delusion is connected to the healthfulness of this chakra. It is through a receptive brow chakra that auric hues and other visual images are intuited clairvoyantly.
The sixth chakra is classically located at the point between the eyebrows, which yogis refer to as the "third eye point," and contains intuition. This is where we find our sense of physical vision, and our extrasensory talent of vision as well. The sixth chakra is that of the brow, third eye, or place of "shamanic seeing." Located between and slightly above the eyebrows, it is indigo in color. This energy center is closely associated with imagination, inner vision, and psychic abilities. It is related to the pituitary gland. It functions as a link between the inner world and the outer world. Malfunctions of the brow chakra commonly manifest as headaches and eye tension. Resonating this chakra remedies any problems in function and opens the door to a reality separate from the ordinary world.
Sanskrit Name: Vishuddha
Color: Sky Blue
The throat chakra is our voice center. It is through our spoken word that we express ourselves to others. The healthfulness of this chakra is signified by how openly and honestly a person expresses himself or herself. A challenge to the throat chakra is for us to express ourselves in the most truthful manner. Falsehoods and half-truths energetically pollute the throat chakra. This behavior violates both our bodies and spirits. Repressing our anger or displeasure by ignoring our feelings through evasive sweet talk, or silence, will manifest into throat imbalances such as strep throat, laryngitis, speech impediments, and so on.
The throat chakra is associated with the vocal cords and the thyroid gland. It is the chakra of communication, telepathy, and creative expression. Unexpressed emotions tend to constrict this energy center. Your inner truth is your sense of what is correct-your innate tendencies and inclinations. In every situation, we should be humble, open, and receptive, suspending all previous judgments in order to grasp the inner truth of the matter. If we rely on the truth of our inner voice to guide us, our actions will be in accord with the times.
Sanskrit Name: Anahata
Color: Green or Pink
The heart chakra is considered to be the love center of our human energy system. Among others, love, heartbreak, grief, pain, and fear, are all emotions that are felt intensely within this energy vortex. For this reason, energy-based therapies that focus on balancing the heart chakra are often the purest healing. Learning self-love is a powerful initiative to undertake in order to secure and maintain a healthy heart chakra. The heart chakra is the place where unconditional love is centered. Unconditional Love is a creative and powerful energy that may guide and help us through the most difficult times. This energy is available in any moment, if we turn our attention to it and use it to free us from our limits and fears.
The heart stands at the center of all energies and unifies our being as a whole. It is the point around which all the energies turn. A discord or imbalance in the heart chakra will adversely effect all the other centers. A clearing of the heart chakra will improve the interaction of all the other centers. It is important to maintain a balance to all the energy centers so a healthy level of awareness is manifested in our everyday lives.
Sanskrit Name: Manipura
The solar plexus chakra defines our self-esteem. The personality (EGO) that develops during puberty is housed in this chakra.
In opening your third chakra, you may reach deep into your own sense of self and find your balance or boundary point. This point is the use of personal power as a weaver of inner and outer power. You have the power to create and accomplish, rather than the power over something or someone. In other words, you have the ability to manifest in the physical world.
Sanskrit Name: Swadhisthana
Location: Lower Abdomen
The root chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our be ings.The root chakra is related to the anus and the adrenal glands. When poorly grounded, your spatial understanding is impaired. You may stumble around physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Grounding enhances your ability to function effectively on a day-to-day basis.
When the root chakra is blocked an individual may feel fearful, anxious, insecure and frustrated. Problems like obesity, anorexia nervosa, and knee troubles can occur. Root body parts include the hips, legs, lower back and sexual organs.
