The human being consists of mainly two bodies, the physical body and the spiritual body. The spiritual body is composed of vibrations of light, which are structured in a way so that they create a large number of different energy centres. These energy centres are referred to as chakras.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word, which means a wheel. There are countless numbers of chakras in the human body. In fact every cell of the body is an energy centre but out of all, seven are considered as main energy centres or chakras. These seven chakras are located in a straight line along the spine, beginning at the base of the spine and finishing over the top of the head. They keep rotating and generating energy, which looks after physical, intellectual and emotional functions of our body, mind and spirit. This energy is perceived as light by the spiritual eye.

Each chakra has a colour and an element of nature associated with it. The colours are in the order of the rainbow colours beginning with: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue Indigo and Violet.
