There are seven major chakras associated with the human body, and numerous minor ones which are much less important.
These major chakras do not actually exist as “objects” (they are actually energy patterns) but there are certain specific locations on the body that correspond to them, five along the spine, and two on the head.
Each chakra is shaped like a funnel or whirlpool of energy. Their vortices lie inside the body, along the spinal cord (which corresponds to a central energy channel) and up into the head.
Each of the seven chakras has both a front (usually dominant) component, and a rear (usually less dominant) component, which are intimately related.
The 1st and 7th chakras, however, are usually represented and thought of as having only the one dominant component, as it is far, far more significant than the weaker component in these two chakras.
The seventh chakra extends vertically upwards above the head. The 1st chakra extends forwards from the base of the spine, and downwards, at up to a 30 to 45 degree angle, although its exact position will vary from person to person and often appears to extend mostly downwards towards the feet.
The other five chakras, spaced between the 1st and 7th, have at their appropriate locations a front component extending out the front of the body and a rear component extending out the rear of the body.
Each of these seven major chakras, or primary energy centers, has its own character and corresponds to a unique aspect of our being—from the 1st chakra (physical vitality, or survival) to the 7th chakra (totality of beingness, or spiritual perfection).
Because the chakras are spiritual entities, however, it is impossible to convey a true explanation of the nature of each chakra in words alone — each is a realm of being and consciousness that cannot be described in mere words but must be experienced.
Each chakra also has a certain true color of the visible light spectrum associated with it—from red (1st chakra) to violet (7th chakra).
