In the ancient Hindu system there are seven Chakras (Energy Vortexes), which are located along the spinal cord of a human being. Each chakra influences a different endocrine gland and nerve plexus, and correlates to different energy body, and the higher realms. Chakra means wheel, they are also called lotus flowers, as each chakra has a certain number of leaves, petals, or spokes. Chakras functions are to absorb and distribute Prana (universal life force) to the etheric and physical bodies. The more the chakra can assimilate prana, the faster it can spin, and the more balanced all our chakras, the more healthy and vital we feel. When the Kundalini (the primordial energy, coiled up, at the base of the spine) integrates with the prana, the chakras become vivified, and perceptions of the higher world become conscious. Within Kundalini the contact is made between the Infinite Divine Creative Energy and the finite physical sexual energy. To gain the highest spiritual potential while incarnated in this physical form the great mass of Kundalini energy locked in the Root Chakra must be released, to travel through all seven chakras up to the Crown Chakra.
First Chakra (The Muladhara Chakra, Four Petal
Lotus) Located at the base of the spine first chakra

First chakra is clear,
I feel secure, grounded, and stable. I can use good "common sense" to
balance my finances, as well as my everyday responsibilities, and still
initiate new activities and interest. My eliminatory system functions
well, neural activity in my legs and feet is healthy, and my ability
to initiate sexual encounters is comfortable and natural. My root chakra
is the home of the Kundalini, the Sleeping Serpent. When this chakra
is clear and balanced, the Goddess Kundalini Shakti can awaken, and
begin her gradual rise towards reunion with Lord Shiva (bringing Enlightenment).

just below the navel second chakra rules our emotional energies.
Second chakra is clear, I feel patient, enduring, nurturing, and secure.

planet. I feel "at home" in my body, and is able to communicate with
my "self". My emotions are balanced, and I'm able to trust my instincts
and "gut feelings". My sex life is natural and loving, and I'm able

food in the correct amount for my body's needs, and enjoy the comfort
and nurturing free of any addictive behaviors. My elimination of waste

at the solar plexus third chakra rules our astral energies. It is chakra
of willpower and our connection to dreamworld.

for the creation of my own reality. Therefore, I do not feel victimized
or controlled by others. If there is a problem in my life, I realize
that if it comes to me, it is mine to deal with. I have keen decision
making abilities, a strong will power, and a good self-image. Since
I take charge of my life, I have good health and vital energy. When
I can balance Yin and Yang, thoughts and emotions, intuition and intellect with willpower, and surrender to my soul, I can be conscious of the many messages
that come to me from the astral plane. I'm able to shield myself from
the "psychic pull" of others, because I'm able to distinguish my emotions
from the emotions of others. I can do this because I have listened to
my own astral world, as it communicates with me through dreams and imagination.

to everything in the Universe. It is the Higher Self assisting in reprogramming
mind to the daily acceptance and integration of its own divinity.
