The Chakra System is a complex network of energy channels connecting these wheels and is mapped throughout the whole body, much like a spiritual nervous system.
There are 7 main and biggest Chakras which are found running alongside the spine (not actually in the spine). The main hurdle these days is the ambiguity of the word “energy”, with so many varying meanings. It sometimes feels like people just use the word because they do not know what they are talking about!
Actually, it is true that in some ways we are not fully sure what we are referring to. When we say “energy”, we are referring to our life force, which makes us alive and conscious, and we have not truly been able to explain the source of this life force. However, the Chakra System helps to explain the movement of this life force or “energy”, and can help us understand ourselves. Working with your chakras and balancing them can help in many ways from curing ailments, to improving our emotional states, or even unblock limitations to financial success!
We work with the seven (7) main chakras which run alongside the spine. They start at the perineum (the space between the genitals and anus), and then run up in a straight line to the top of the head. The top most chakra is in fact just outside of the body above the top of the head. Each chakra is said to vibrate at a different frequency and is associated with a particular color, very handy for chakra meditations where you can visualize the colors. They are also each associated with certain emotions and organs and their function.
There are some who believe there are 13 Chakras,
Yes, you read that right, some believe you have far more than just 7 chakras…
I will touch upon the 13 main chakras that make up the 12 Chakra Systems here. So why is it called the 12 Chakra System when there are 13 chakras? Well, we're talking about chakras 0-12 here! But the reality is that you have thousands of minor chakra energetic centers throughout your mind body, and spirit.
However by viewing the energy body through the 12 Chakra System you're able to see and experience your complete, and balanced energy body system.
Seven (7) Chakras | The Life-Force Energy Centers
#1 Root Chakra (Muladhara)

Associated with the color red and the spinal column, the kidneys, legs and colon.
#2 Sacral Chakra (Svadisthana)
Located by the Sacrum, a large piece of bone at the base of the spine, but above the coccyx. This chakra represents pleasure, emotional balance and sexuality. Associated with the color orange and the reproductive organs, prostate and bladder.

The only chakra to be found outside of the physical body, this is located just above the crown of the head in what is considered our “spiritual body”. There are less words about this chakra as it is the chakra associated with higher consciousness, pure unconditional live and a state of pure being (beyond words!). There are no physical organs associated, but it is associated with vitalizing the upper brain, and the color is a light purple or indigo, or white.
