A considerable amount of scientific research has been done in an effort to validate the existence of chakras. An electromyography, which is an instrument that measures the electrical activity of the muscles, was used to measure the human electromagnetic fields out put under many different conditions. It was discovered that the physical body would emanate radiation (light) from parts of the body that were associated with the different chakra locations. It was also discovered that certain levels of consciousness are linked with specific frequency vibrations.
There are several variations of chakra lore. This means that the interpretations of each chakra and the number of chakras that are used within those systems varies according to different cultures. For instance, the Classical Hindu (Bindu or the Soma) uses a seven-chakra system, the Tibetan six-chakra system and the Narayana (yoga derived) uses a nine-chakra system. The interpretations of each chakra depend upon cultural beliefs, ideals, philosophy and traditions.
Chakras have been described as “wheels of light”. They are portrayed as tiny vortexes of spinning energy that emanate or radiate from the front and back of the spinal (energy) column that runs from the head to the feet and beyond with the exception of the root/perineum chakras ( having only a downward direction/radiation) and the crown chakra (having only an upward direction/radiation). The front of the chakras relates to the conscious self and our immediate reality or current life experiences while the back of the chakra relates to the unconscious self, ancestral programs, feelings and spiritual matters such as past life experiences, higher dimensions and hidden knowledge.
Energy is information that moves. Each chakra carries information throughout the entire system into and out of the body. Every chakra has a unique influence on the body physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Each energy center vibrates at its own frequency and spins (inner and outer rotations) at its own rate or velocity. This means that the information (energy) has a specific speed and frequency to it. Both Internal and external influences (data/information) that is being sent out from or received into each chakra affects and alters the way it functions within the entire chakra system. Varying speeds and frequencies (slower or faster) alter or change information which influences the chakras energetic balance and the way it runs or acts within the system (our bodies).
