The very word Chakra comes from the Sanskrit word cakram, which means wheel.
In Hindu art the chakras are often depicted as flowers, each with a set number of petals. These flower petals are interconnected in such a way that they appear as spokes in an energetic wheel, they are visualized as whirling wheels of energy situated along the spine in what is called the “Subtle Body”.
This double is not fully outside of you, but is intertwined with your physical body. These Chakra energy centers are moving and swirling clockwise and are the main avenue for the reception and transmission of energy.
Each Chakra has a color and a mantra, mainly a seed syllable or a single letter ascribed to them. The mantra is used as the sound in each ritual and each chakra is assigned a specific colour.
Our first chakra is known as the root Chakra or Muladhara. It can be found at the very end of our spine and right atop the genitals. The color associated with this chakra is red. Red can be a vital and living color but can also be associated with anger and frustration. The element that it most closely resonates is with earth. This chakra, when balanced, will keep us grounded. A block often manifests in sluggishness, fatigue, constipation. It is responsible for insomnia, lower back pain , eating issues on both spectrums.

The Heart Chakra called Anāhata in Sanskrit Is situated in the center of the chest just right of the heart area itself. It is a major chakra and is often at the center of the chakras since it distills the lower chakras energies so it may move up and relaxes the energy from the higher chakras when traveling down to the lower chakras. A balanced heart chakra, often appears as a sense of nurturing, optimism, compassion and feelings of wholeness with oneself. Often this chakra is hurt more often than others because of life events.

The sixth chakra called Ājñā in Sanskrit Is situated right between the eyes. This is the eye of discernment and wisdom, your mind's eye if you will. The gland that this chakra most connects to is the pituitary gland which regulates all the other glands and hormones in your body.

The seventh chakra called Sahasrāra is situated right at the top of the head, our spiritual gateway. It is also the location where life/divine energy enters into the chakra system and your body.
