What Other Kinds of Chakras Are There?
Chakras are vortexes of energy that spiral out from an origin point and from where lines of energy cross each other (creating a spin). While the body has seven major chakras, many traditions list more. There are spiritual chakras above the head and grounding earth chakras below our body base. There are earth and cosmic chakras as well. In our human body, chakras exist in many sizes; if you count down to the cellular level, there are millions. That means that are countless numbers of ways you can explore and work with energy. Energy workers of many disciplines pursue this study as part of their learning.
Chakras spin out and back into specific frequencies of energy. The seven major chakras take us into seven worlds of energy that especially make up the human being. The classic Far Eastern chakra diagrams used here are actually diagrams of the energy of that chakra and can be read by people familiar with their symbols. These diagrams can be very complex, graphing sound, animals, plants, cosmic images, sacred geometry.
