“Chakra” is a sanskrit word that translates to wheel. Chakras are energy wheels, sometimes referred to disks or centers, in the subtle body, that acts as a vortex, spinning energy where matter and consciousness meet. When these energy centers are aligned and balanced, so are the spiritual, physical, emotional and mental bodies within the subtle body.

Energy Flow

The human body has 114 chakras throughout, where the 72000 nadis, or energy channels, meet in the body. Life force energy, also known as Prana, circulates through various nadis. The seven major chakra energy centers align with the central channel of these nadis, starting from the base of the spine and move up to the crown of the head. The flow of energy through the meridians, the electrical network that runs through the human body, are regulated by the chakras.

This energy system communicates with the body via the nervous system and endocrine glands to keep it healthy and balanced. When chakras are too open, blocked, or are out of alignment, the flow of the body’s energy system is disrupted which may result in physical illness or a sense of unbalance mentally and/or emotionally. Aligning your chakras allows your energy centers to flow freely, connecting the body to the mind and the mind to the spirit, cultivating more happiness, harmony and well-being.

The Seven Major Chakras In Balance

When aligning your chakras, start at your base with the 1st chakra and move upward so not to blow out lower chakras.

1st Chakra. Identified as the energy color red, the root or base chakra associated with the element of earth is located at the perineum, at the base of the spine.

When the 7th chakra is in balance, you may feel connected to God or “the source”, oneness, live in the present, acceptance, bliss and/or pure consciousness energy.

Mind Body Connection

When the mind and body are connected, everything flows, but when this connection is disrupted, energetic imbalance may occur that can contribute to negative effects. The body wants to attain energetic balance in your chakras. When one chakra is blocked, the other chakras begin to compensate and either become overactive or underactive, which then pulls energy away from that region of the body. This energetic imbalance affects the corresponding endocrine gland, resulting in symptoms of illness.

Aligning Your Chakras with The Universal Sphere®

There are a variety of processes and techniques available to align/cleanse/balance your chakras, but few are able to show scientific proof that they work.

As a kinestetic, I follow my feelings, but I also appreciate being able to see results like those that can be seen when testing with a GDV-EPC Kirlian Pro Camera, which was used during this indicative test of a distance Universal Sphere® session.

The picture top left was taken before a client in Queensland, Australia received their distance Universal Sphere® session from a Universal Sphere® Practitioner who was located in Oregon, USA. As you can see, three chakras, (6th, 5th and 1st), are outside of the light green highlighted area.

The picture lower left was taken immediately after the distance session, and shows all seven chakras to be within the green highlighted area, which represents and excellent state of energetic balance. Learn More about the science.

Aligning your chakras with the Universal Sphere® can be performed by a Universal Sphere® Practitioner, like myself, in person or from a distance. You can also learn to do it for yourself and for others in a one day, in person, workshop taught by a certified Universal Sphere® International Instructor, or host a private workshop in the comfort of your home or office.

  1. Hi Shellie,
    I have to say, I am very impressed with this page. I browse through the whole page first before reading a post and I can immediately tell that I’m going to like your article here.

    I like reading about chakras. I watch anime a lot and a lot of them talk about using chakras to awaken oneself and go beyond the average human’s limits. Though these anime are all work of fiction, I do believe that there is some truth to the information they gave about chakras.

    This is excellent content. I enjoyed reading it very much and will be adding you to my bookmarks as I may refer to your page in a future article that I could be writing.

    Many thanks! Very informative and definitely applicable to everyone.


    1. Thank you, migzzz, I greatly appreciate your kind words. It’s interesting to know they talk about chakras in anime. I like that the info is being shared in that way. Thank you, for your visit!

  2. It makes sense that our bodies produce and release energy through biochemical and mechanical interactions. Thanks for your article that teaches us that we have energy centers in the body called Chakras. The influence of the harmony of these centers influences our health and wellbeing.

  3. You’re welcome, ebufi, and thank you for sharing your feedback with me. These energy centers definitely play a significant role in maintaining balance throughout our systems. Thank you for stopping by!
