Chakra Definition

7:07 pm Chakras, Yoga Glossary

A chakra is defined as a wheel, or vortex of energy.  There are seven primary chakras that flow through a human’s energetic system.  The chakras have been called “windows to the soul” this is because they provide humans with subtle connections into soul consciousness.  It is through the seven energy centers that vitality pulses throughout our system energizing many of our physical, emotional and mental states.

By removing blockages within our chakras we are able to remove blockages within our lives.  We can discover our true self, and purpose in life.  And in that discovery live to our fullest expression and potential.

All definitions here are based on my understanding, learning and reading of Kundalini and other Yoga related texts, classes and websites.

I invite the Kundalini Yoga experts in the community to ellaborate on what I have presented here, and thus further the learning experience for visitors.

    I don’t know if you can help, but I thought I’d give it a good shot.
    My question is what is chakra? I looked it up in the dictionary and it gave some generic discription. I am desperate to change my life. I’m “disabled” (not a good word, it feels too perminate and it WILL NOT be!) I want to learn (slowly) yoga, and anything that will help me on my journey to get better!
    Can you help? I sure hope so!
    I tried to read the blogs but do you remember “The Peanuts” with Charlie Brown? Remember his teacher that only said “wa, wa ,wa, wa?” Well that’s what it sounded like what I read.
    Even if you can’t help I appreciate you taking the time to read this.
    Thanks, Penny T.

    The chakras have a depth of definition which truly can only be experienced.

    Might I suggest you locating a Kundalini Yoga Teacher near you and asking them about chakras and how you could begin a gradual yoga program…
