What is a chakra? II

Chakra Series II

The last post we described the seven body chakras, the colors associated with them and their locations.  In this post we will begin to learn about the major functions of each of the chakras.

Our chakras are here to help us develop consciousness for our soul evolvement, as well as being transmitters for energy flow connecting us to the rest of the universe.

  • The first chakra is related on a body level to the adrenal glands. It is related to our survival — food, shelter, clothes, etc. We are able to release old and negative energies from our aura through our first chakra.  Our first chakra is where we connect with our parents and children.  We are also able to connect with our potent kundalini energy through this first chakra.  The vibration of the first chakra is set at personal power.
  • The second chakra is associated with the gonads of our body.  It relates to our emotions, sexuality and reproductive body.  We are able to feel our emotions and other’s emotions through this chakra.  The vibration of the second chakra is set at ownership.
  • The third chakra is associated with the pancreas. This chakra related to how we control the flow of energy through our body.  It also relates to our dream space.  We enter and exit our dreams through our third chakra.  The vibration of the third chakra is set at permission.
  • The fourth chakra is associated with the thymus.  The fourth chakra has to do with our self-affinity, love and relationship. We love and often heal others through our fourth chakra.  This heart chakra connects to the soul.  The vibration of the fourth chakra is set at affinity.

What is a Chakra I?

The word chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel.  The chakra system is a very important energetic system of the human body.  Chakas are subtle energy centers which some describe as looking like a flower facing outward, having petals and a stem, and others describe the chakras looking more like a cone opening outward.Chakras are openings for energy to flow into and out of the aura. We are able to open and close our chakras to moderate this flow of energy. Healthy flow is important since stagnant energy flow in the chakras leads to imbalances in our system and illness. A lack of flow can distort our perceptions and bring us down. However, having chakras too far open before we are ready for the intensity of the energy psychologically and spiritually speaking, can lead to a chakra being “blown out” or damaged. A healthy and moderate opening of our chakras according to our development, clarity and maturity is essential for long term wellness.

Here is a list of the seven major chakras of the human body, their location, and the color associated with them.

These major chakras are along the midline of the body.

  • Base or First Chakra, located at the base of the spine, cone opens downward – Red
  • Sacral or Second Chakra, located below the navel – Red-Orange
  • Solar Plexus or Third Chakra, located between the navel and chest – Yellow
  • Heart or Fourth Chakra, located in the center of the chest – Green or Pink
  • Throat or Fifth Chakra, located at the front of the throat – Light Blue
  • Forehead, Third Eye or Sixth Chakra, located between the eyebrows on the forehead – Indigo
  • Crown or Seventh Chakra, located above the head, cone opens upward – White or Purple

Next we will explore specific functions of the chakras.

What is an Aura III?

Layers of the Aura

Our Energy Field, or Auric Field has seven layers.  These layers correspond to the seven body chakras, which we explore in a later article.  For now, let’s look at the seven layers of the aura.  The first layer of the aura sits closest to the body, with each subsequent layer enveloping/surrounding the previous, but distinctly separate, outward to the seventh layer, which is the layer farthest from us.

Our aura extends outward from us to about the tip of our fingers if we raise our arm horizontally.  We will initially see the seventh layer of a person, and as we interact or communicate with them, we start to see the deeper layers.   Here is a list of the layers of the aura, from first through seventh, and their general associations.

  • First layer:  associated with survival – feeling physical sensations and doing physical functions
  • Second layer:  associated with emotions – where our emotions and feelings pass through us
  • Third layer:  associated with our will – also related to our mental life and linear thinking, power and integrity
  • Fourth layer:  associated with our love – affinity for ourselves and humanity
  • Fifth layer:  associated with communication – the power of the word, listening and taking responsibility for our actions and creativity
  • Sixth layer:  associated with perception – how we see truth, our intuition, celestial love for all of life
  • Seventh layer:  associated with wisdom – this is our connection to spirit

What is an Aura II?

In the last article we learned about the aura, or the energy field around your body which can have many different colors within. Just like your body has it’s own auric field, every individual part of your body has its own aura, including your internal organs. The following list is a description of what color aura each organ may have when healthy.

  • Heart: The aura most often has a sapphire blue, and a deep blue color in the nucleus, or interior.
  • Brain: The aura will show light green, with a pale orange or white interior.

  • Kidneys: The aura of the kidney is blue, with a light blue within the kidneys.
  • Stomach: A vibrant pink aura with a green interior.
  • Pancreas: The aura will show bright orange-red and a pale blue interior.
  • Intestines: This aura will also be bright orange-red.
  • Bones: A white light surrounds the bones, with the marrow radiating a red color.
  • Spleen: The spleen has an orange aura with a pale green interior.
  • Lungs: Usually the lungs show a blue aura with a deep blue interior.
  • Bloodstream: Ruby-red is the aura radiating from the bloodstream.
  • Reproductive Organs: The aura of these organs is usually red-orange.
  • Eyes: Light green mixed with light green, sometimes blue.
  • Nerves: Many colors, usually light green, sometimes pink, violet.
  • Spine: The aura is a healthy white.
  • All cells of our body will vibrate at silver, representing the divine intelligence and spark within each cell.
  • When these organs or cells are ill or unhealthy, often the aura will turn gray, or is spotted with gray.

What is an Aura?

The aura is an energy field around your body that is usually invisible to the naked eye, although the ability to see auras can be learned. It is composed of seven layers which correspond to the seven chakras. The aura is the individual expression of the universal life force, and is where your health manifest first, before the body. The aura helps us perceive what is going on around us, over and beyond our senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste. We sense when someone is standing behind us, not only because we may hear or smell them, but because we are aware of a subtle response we have when others have stepped into our aura. This response may come as a slight shiver or tingle, or as a knowledge a boundary around us has been crossed.

The energies within the aura come through in a kaleidoscope of colors and hues that are vibrant and alive. We are filled with colors. People always ask me what do the colors in the aura mean? Colors within the aura can be very subjective, meaning they don’t have any specific meaning per se. In general though, some themes exists in the colors.

Here is short guide to colors within the aura:

  • Red: the energy of vitality and a very physical energy.
  • Orange: the energy of motivation, enthusiasm, and organization
  • Green: the energy of balance and harmony which is essential to healing
  • Blue: the energy of healing
  • Deep Rose – Pink: the energy of love
  • Yellow: the energy of concentration and of strong mental energy
  • Purple: the energy of peace and of letting go
  • Gold: the energy of wisdom, confidence, courage, strength, faith and strong protection
  • Silver: the energy of intelligence
  • Pure White: the energy of being uplifted and redeemed, connected to clairvoyance and advancement of soul
