Chakra Meditation The Seven Chakras And Their Meditations
The concept of chakras and the way energy flows through, in and around them, can be found in both Hinduism and Buddhism. It is more commonly associated with Hinduism, as such most people believe that to be the origin of the knowledge.
The flow of energy runs through many spiritual systems though. With bits of it found in numerous places. The origin of the word chakra is within Sanskrit though. Where the meaning is “wheel” or “turning”, more on this can be found here.
The meaning fits incredibly well with various characteristics of what they are, what they do, and how they operate.
They are energy centres. Energy flows through them. Energy in itself is universal, in its raw state it is neither good nor bad. It has no form. No direction. No purpose, and as such does little.
It is only once it is given purpose, direction and meaning that it becomes “Good” or “Bad” and has any real effect. This is where the chakras come in. They give the energy that meaning, purpose and direction. They turn it from something raw and formless, into something with meaning and substance.
Each of them has a specific meaning. Relating to particular aspects of your life. As such the energy flow through them relates directly to your experience relating to each of these aspects within your life. As the energy flows, and varies in its flow, through them the results you experience in your life on the level of substance vary too. More on this later.
On top of this they each spin in different directions, being either clockwise or counter-clockwise, depending on their location and your gender. Yes they spin in different directions for men and women. Or in their clean, efficient, properly functioning state they do. Again more on this later, as it is another thing that can cause problems.
So what are the different chakras? What do they do? What associations do they have?
