For the Vedas, feeling and managing this energy in their bodies through their mental and physical practices, lead them to feel and identify the 7 principal energy storage and distribution centers in the Human body and called them The chakra system.

The term chakra (Sanscrit) comes from the Vedic Hindu/Yoga tradition, it means wheel or mystical circle. The term refers to psychoenergetic centers in the subtle or nonphysical human body (lingadeha) discovered in ancient India. 

Psycho Energy is called to the human mind processed divine energy, once your body receives this life force energy from mother earth for his 3 first chakras and from the universe for the resting top 4 chakras connecting earth with the universe, this energy which comes in a love natural vibrating frequency of nature, goes through your body passing first through your thinking, the vibration and frequency is modificated or expanded depending the quality of your thinking, this frequency is generated by your mind basing your thoughts, intention and inspiration, this energy will vibrate in high frequencies of love evolution and will help you in every way to accomplish your true life objective, initially the most important part of this energy is stored in the 1st Chakra Muladhara from where basing your mental awareness, emotional control, deep work for use and control your subtle energy you can reach the Enlightenment” or “ kundalini “ for connecting with the Divine Great Spirit, reaching and achieving your positive propositions in life.


"Every thought and experience you've ever had in your life gets filtered through these chakra databases. Each event is recorded into your cells...".

The chakras are described as being aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. New Age practices often associate each chakra with a certain colour. In various traditions, chakras are associated with multiple physiological functions, aspects of Consciousness, and an Element. Typically refer to Water, Earth, Fire, Air, and (later) Aether, which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances. Usually, aether isn't a common element.


Each chakra is ruled by a planet. Chakras display the nature and characteristics of their ruling planets. Astrology Birth charts, which are formulated according to our date and time of birth, show the aspects the planets were in when we were born and how they relate with each other and ourselves. While our birth chart describes our spiritual, mental and physical aspects, it also helps us see how the planets shape us and affect our chakras and energy body. The first breath that we took on this earth has made its mark on every cell of our being, with all this combined planetary energies and frequencies. The day, hour and second we were born, this is what make us unique characters in life on Earth, to teach and learn from others and has become an unseperable part of us.

The Entire humanity shared that moment with us and life started flowing with the next moment. However, that moment of our birth spreads over our entire life in a certain personal frequency and gives us the responsibility to use “that moment” to the benefit of all humans. Only we hold the chance to make that moment perfect. We can feel that our life is part of the universe as we get to know ourselves and balance our being.


The seven chakras within us are like a reflection of the entire solar system. In one sense, humans are a microcosmos of the macrocosmos. Therefore, universal energies symbolized with those of the solar system exist within us too.  


The Chakra methodology is extensively developed in the goddess tradition of Hinduism called Skaktism. It is an important concept along with yantras, mandalas and kundalini yoga in its practice.

The Chakra-based system is a part of the meditative exercises that came to be known as Yoga.

Modern History

Chakra positions in supposed relation to nervous plexuses, from Charles W. Leadbeater's 1927 book The Chakras

Kurt Leland, for the Theosophical society in America, concluded that the western chakra system was produced by an "unintentional collaboration" of many groups of people: esotericists and clairvoyants, often theosophical Indologists; the scholar of myth, Joseph Campbell; the founders of the Esalen Institute and the psychological tradition of Carl Jung; the colour system of Charles W. Leadbeater's 1927 book The Chakras.

Treated as traditional lore by some modern Indian yogis; and energy healers such as Barbara Brennan, Leland states that far from being traditional, the two main elements of the modern system, the rainbow colours and the list of qualities, first appeared together only in 1977.


The concept of a set of seven chakras came to the West in the 1880s; at that time each chakra was associated with a nerve plexus. In 1918, Sir  John Woodroffe, alias Arthur Avalon, translated two Indian texts, the Ṣaṭ-Cakra-Nirūpaṇa and the Pādukā-Pañcaka, and in his book The Serpent Power drew Western attention to the seven chakra theory.


In the 1920s, each of the seven chakras was associated with an endocrine gland, a tradition that has persisted. More recently, the lower six chakras have been linked to both nerve plexuses and glands. The seven rainbow colours were added by Leadbeater in 1927; a variant system in the 1930s proposed six colours plus white. Leadbeater's theory was influenced by Johann Georg Gichtel's 1696 book Theosophia Practica, which mentioned inner "force centres".


The chakras are thought to vitalise the physical body and to be associated with interactions of a mental, emotional and physical nature. They are considered Loci of life Energy or Prana (which New Age belief equates with Shakti, Qi  in Chinese, ki in Japanese, koach-ha-guf  in Hebrew, bios in Greek, and Aether in both Greek and English), which is thought to flow among them along pathways called Nadis. The function of the chakras is to spin and draw in this energy to keep the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health of the body in balance.

Psychological and other attributes such as layers of the Aura, developmental stages, associated diseases, Aristotelian Elements, emotions, and states of consciousness were added still later. A wide range of correspondences such as with Alchemical metals, Astrological signs and Planets, foods, herbs, gemstones, homeopathic remedies, Kabbalistic spheres, musical notes, totem animals, and Tarot cards have also been identified.
