What are CHAKRAS?
 
According to Eastern Indian philosophy, we possess seven major Chakras, or pyschic centers on the body.  Each of these forms a bridge, link or energy transformer; changing pure energy into various forms, and connecting the four bodies together (i.e. spiritual, mental, astral and physical.)  the Chakras are located along the 'nadies'.  Nadies are a network of psychic nerves and channels.
 
Chakras correspond with major accupuncture points.  The seven major chakras are connected together by three major nadies which are parralel and near to each other.  The middle nadi is called the suchumna and it has neutral characteristics.  The nadi on the left (i.i nearest your left hand) is called the ida nadi, which has yin characteristics.  The nadi onyour right (i.e nearest your right hand) is called the pingala nadi, having yang characteristics.  
 
Chakras are visible to clairvoyent sight as variously coloured rotating circles or funnels.  In the East they are described as petaled flowers or lotus'.  Where as in Western Shamanism they are devined as Spirit Tunnels. 
 
There are many minor chakras throughout the body, but the are 7 main ones.  Each Chakra has a colour and a pitch associated with it, which can be used to invoke it.
