Chakra Power

Some teaching promotes the idea that Chakras are energy centres of the body that connect the physical with the spiritual. They are allegedly linked to the energy channels of the spine. The seven major chakras are said to be related to hormonal glands of the body.
The Sanskrit word ‘chakra’ means wheel or disk, referring to the visual appearance of the chakras seen by clairvoyants.

The seven main chakras and their influence are believed to be:

The goal of some spiritual practices is to open and energize all chakras to allow a full integration of the physical and spiritual body. One way to achieve this is supposed to meditate on the individual chakras and visualize them as opened flower blossoms glowing with their respective colors. The use of the corresponding gemstones are said to enhace this process.

General advice for all spiritual practices is to set-up a sacred space or temple where you can display the objects that represent the desired goals for you. In this space you are believed to be safe and undisturbed during meditation.
