“Before the beginning, all was nothing, only the spark of Divine consciousness. From this spark, all of the creation, arose…spinning out from the center…spinning into time…spinning into being…spinning wheels of life.” – quote from The Illuminated Chakras documentary.
The word chakra derives from Sanskrit word for “wheel” or “turning”, but a better translation of the word is “vortex or whirlpool”.
Chakras are energy points in the subtle body and through our chakras, we receive energy from the surroundings. A human being has many chakras, but seven are the main chakras.
The seven main chakra centers are aligned along the spinal column and each of the seven main chakras has its own innate intelligence and function, each governs the main organ and a gland.
“As we explore the aura and the chakras, it is important for us to view our journey not as revolutionary, but rather as very traditional. Chakras, as well as auras and electromagnetic fields, are as old as the earth itself.
The chakra system, in fact, is a part of the ancient and lost mysteries. And, in the end, the chakra system in our bodies is how we find our way back to the most ancient mystery of all – God, the Oneness, the Omniscient.” – Rosalyn L. Bruyere’s quote from Wheels of Light.

“Numerous cultures describe a matrix of subtle energies that support, shape, and animate the physical body, called qi or chi in China, prana in the yoga tradition of India and Tibet, yesod in the Jewish cabalistic tradition, ki in Japan, baraka by the Sufis, wakan by the Lakotas, orenda by the Iroquois, megbe by the Ituri Pygmies, and the Holy Spirit in Christian tradition. It is hardly a new idea to suggest that subtle energies operate in tandem with the denser, “congealed” energies of the material body.” – quote from Donna Eden with David Feinstein in Energy Medicine.
