The word Chakra refers to a concept first mentioned in ancient sacred Sanskrit Hindu texts. It describes a worldview which holds that we humans are an amazing miracle of divine creation and as such are comprised of a number of energy centers called, chakras which act as interface devices between this earthly, physical dimension and the unseen, spiritual dimensions. The word, chakra itself is derived from the sanskrit word for wheel, assumed to have been chosen due to the spinning / whirling nature of this interface when observed by those gifted with spiritual sight.
Tradition has it that there are seven main chakras in the human body, each with it's own particular vibration and color and each responsible for channelling/responding to different aspects of human nature, the lowest one dealing with survival and security issues on the physical plane while the topmost serves as our doorway to transcendant spiritual dimensions.
With spiritual and holistic healing, it is a widely held belief that stimulation or working on areas where the Chakras are located can produce incredible self-healing properties whilst also, whilst meditating or 'channelling', the use of the Chakra's can keep you grounded physically whilst opening up mentally.
Additionally, it is believed that ALL creatures have these energy points - not just human beings - and that healing and stimulating the Chakra's on animals has also had a profound effect.
