The energy flow in the chakras

The purpose of this website is to provide useful information about the energy flow in the human chakra system. Chakras are energy centers in our bodies that influence our health on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. If one of the chakras is blocked or out of balance it will have a negative impact on our overall health and manifest in a disturbance (disease) in our bodies.

Although the knowledge about chakras is thousands of years old they merely find consideration in western medicine. The most popular chakra system originates in Hinduism and was first mentioned about 600 B.C. in ancient Vedic texts, the Yoga Upanishads. In the Upanishads the chakras are described as psychic centers of consciousness in our body that influence our overall well-being.
There do exist other ancient chakra systems, i.e. in Tibetan Buddhism and in North American Shamanism, that differ slidely from the Hindu chakra system. As the latter is the most popular one in the Western World, it will be the main subject of this website.

According to the Hindu chakra system, there are seven main chakras and several minor chakras in the human body. All seven main chakras are alligned at the Nadi Sushuma (=central energy channel) that runs through our spinal cord. Nadis are considered to be channels in both the physical and the subtle human body, through which life force energy (=Prana) flows. This knowledge of the Nadis is applied by many eastern health sciences like TCM or Ayurveda. With regard to TCM the nadis comprise equivalents to the meridians, the energy channels that are worked on over i.e. Acupuncture or Shiatsu to restore the flow of Prana and support the healing process.

The way we experience life impacts the flow of energies through the nadis and the chakras. In order to remain healthy, they must remain open and unblocked. Painful life experiences can cause blockages in the nadis and chakras and will ultimately lead to health problems if not dissolved propperly.

At the bottom opening of the central channel is the first chakra located – the Root Chakra. Its energy vortex is pointing downwards towards the earth. Above the root chakra is the second, the Sacral Chakra located. The energy vortices of the sacral chakra point towards the front and towards the rear of the body, like the next five chakras up to the sixth chakra, which is called Third Eye Chakra. The two energy flow directions of the 2nd to 6th chakra correlate with future to present (front) and present to past (rear) influences. At the top opening of the central channel is the 7th chakra located – the Crown Chakra, with its energy vortex pointing upwards towards the sky. The root and the crown chakra are complement to each other, whereas the root chakra grounds us on earth and the crown chakra connects us with higher dimensions.

The chakra system is communicating with the body by governing biological processes in the endocrine and nervous systems, as well as the organs. Each chakra is paired with an endocrine gland and its relevant processes. If a chakra is unbalanced it will manifest this unbalance in the related gland or organs and disturb necessary biolical processes for our well-being.

The Chakra Colors

The chakra colors and their meanings

The goal of this post is to inform about the relations of colors and frequencies to the chakra system. It aims to show what colors are, what psychological effects they have on us and how they relate to the chakras.

Chakras are energy centers in the human body that regulate our physical and emotional health. The existence of these energy centers, that are aligned with the spinal column, has been known for thousands of years in many ancient civilizations. The most well known and usually referred to chakra system in the western world has its origin in the Hindu tradition. The Sanskrit word “chakra” literally translates into wheel. When open and active, all chakras vibrate on their own specific frequency and resonate with the different colors of light.

Light itself is a vibration, a wave that is characterized by a wavelength and a frequency. As all light waves move at the same speed, the number of wave crests passing by a given point in a given time period depends on the wavelength.The shorter the wavelength, the higher the frequency. Light as we know it seems to be of white color, although it actually contains all colors of the rainbow. When white light gets in touch with objects we see those in colors, depending on which of the light frequencies are absorbed, reflected or transmitted (ie. in glass).

The colors of the visible light have wavelengths ranging from 700nm for (infra) red to 480nm (ultra) violet light. The chakra colors correspondent with those frequencies ranging from 400 to 700 Thz.

Chakra colors and chakra frequencies

Chakra Color Wavelength (interval) Frequency (interval)
Root Chakra Red 700-625nm 405-480THz
Sacral Chakra Orange 625-590nm 480-510THz
Solar Plexus Chakra Yellow 590-565nm 510-530THz
Heart Chakra Green (Pink) 565-520nm 530-580THz
Throat Chakra Blue 520-450nm 580-630THz
Third Eye Chakra IndigoViolet 450-400nm 630-680THz
Crown Chakra Purple (White) 400+nm 680+THz

Red resembles the longest wavelength with the lowest frequency. It is the color of our first primary chakra, the root chakra. The root chakra comprises the energetically densest of all chakras as it vibrates on the lowest frequency and grounds our physical bodies into matter. On the other end of the color spectrum we find violet which has a much shorter wavelength and therefore higher frequency. This is the color resonating with the crown chakra, the chakra that connects us with the Divine. (The crown chakra further resonates with white, which is not a color itself but the sum of all colors). In other words, they higher the chakra the higher its inherent frequency. The more we develop all our chakras the higher we will ultimately rise our overall frequency.

By looking at the chakra colors one gets a very good indication for their main aspects and issues. Although the color interpretations may vary a bit from culture to culture lets have a look at their most common meanings. The positive attributes of the colors are states of mind that correlate with balanced respective chakras, whereas the negative attributes correlate with a respective chakra difficiency/overactivity.

Chakra Stones and Chakra Crystals

All things in the universe are forms of vibrating energy, including inorganic solid matter like stones. This knowledge about the real nature of all things, although just recently proven by science, was already executed thousands of years ago by several civilizations like the ancient Egyptians, Sumerians or Greeks. They all seemed to know about the frequencies of specific rocks and crystals and used them in their jewellery, in their rituals or as burial objects. From the 11th century through the renaissance precious- and semi-precious stones were even used in the treatment of several medical diseases. Although nowadays not recognized in modern medical therapies, their healing properties find more and more appreciation and application in holistic healing methods like Reiki or crystal healing.
