Chakra’s

chakras

The Cosmic Deck was designed and channeled with the chakra system in mind …each of the mandalas were painted with all energies represented as well. As you work with the deck and get into the greater subtleties represented you will find that the colors give you even more detailed information. For those who want to go even further into the use and understanding of the cards I am including chakra information here so that you can draw upon it when and if you reach that point in your use of the cards. But, most importantly of all …have fun with them and remember that we are supposed to celebrate rather than just survive this lifetime and that all the gifts and talents that we carry within are tools gathered through countless lifetimes and brought to this reality to manifest even greater treasures that are within.

The study of the Chakra systems has been around for hundreds of years, maybe even thousands. They are power centers within our bodies and they radiate energy. They are connected to different body parts and elements within the human energetic fields. We all have heard about a chakra being blocked or the opposite wide open and we all have met people who will read our auras or our Chakra’s. For the most part all most people really know is that they are pin wheels whose colors follow the rainbow as they ascend from the base of the spine to the crown of the head

It is also believed that we have seven main chakra centers and that each main center is connected to our being on several different levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. On the physical level each chakra governs a main organ or gland, which is then connected to other body parts that resonate the same frequency.

Every organ, gland and body system is connected to a chakra and each chakra is connected to a color vibrational frequency. For example, the heart chakra governs the thymus gland and it is also in charge of the functioning of the heart organ, lungs, bronchial system, lymph glands, secondary circulatory system, immune system as well as the arm and hands. And the heart chakra resonates to the color green.

The seven main chakra centers are aligned along the spinal column. If there are disturbances on any level, this shows in the chakra’s vitality level. Also each of the seven main chakras is their own intelligence center. This means that each chakra is not only associated with our physical health but also controls aspects connected to our emotional, mental and belief system.

To help balance a chakra–whether on an emotional, intellectual, physical or spiritual level–we need to bring in the chakra (color) vibration, which resonates at the same frequency

first chakra

 

FIRST CHAKRA

Color
Red – Red is the color of vitality, courage and self-confidence. When you are feeling drained and you need a surge of physical energy focus on the color red. It connects us to our physical bodies and draws energy from the earth, which sustains us on all levels.

THE ROOT – It is through the first chakra that energy from the earth enters the subtle energy system of the body, and where we would feel our connection with the earth on which we live. It gives us a connection with the life on the planet as a whole, that we are not separate little entities.

It is the seat of the Kundalini, the coiled up serpent waiting to spring. It controls the horizontal section of the body from just below the buttocks to a point just above the sexual organs; excretion and digestion of food.

Your first chakra is associated with your connection to a tribal force and your sense of belonging in the world. It symbolizes the physical plane of existence both the earth and your physical body. This being true, it’s not surprising that the first chakra is known to be the source of self-preservation and survival. When this first chakra energy is disrupted, you may be more liable to feel alone in the world, be afraid for your safety, and feel disconnected from other people. You’re also likely to feel ungrounded, lacking a strong connection to the earth or your body. Energetically, when the first chakra is disrupted you can feel you have no real “roots.”

• The Earth element nurtures all that we do, and represents solidity and grounding. Earth people are firm and resolute – we can say they are “down to Earth”. They are also practical, hardworking and very conservative. Those of you born under the influence of the Element of Earth are wise, serene and prudent, firmly rooted in your morals, ethics and responsibilities. Led by logic rather than emotion, you seek to plan your life as far out in advance as possible, to expect the unexpected and control your destiny down to the last detail. Your disciplined reserve — which can come across as true grace if you work it right — garners you respect and admiration.

• Saturn is known as the planet of restriction and limitation, but it could also be known as the planet of manifestation. Saturn is the planet that keeps us grounded because Saturn requires tangible usefulness from all that it touches. Saturn is that which denies entropy and manifests the physical form to maintain order over chaos.

SECOND CHAKRA

Chakra_2_Orange

The second chakra is thought of “that which is itself, that which belongs to itself. It is primarily through this chakra that we experience the deep feelings associated with physical manifestation: sexual energy, which is also the seat of creativity and the place where we experience that childlike wonder and excitement of things around us. A sense of innocence and wonder (which we sometimes lose because of blockages put on this c. by taboos toward sexuality. Here we encounter change, for without change, we cannot grow.

The second chakra is often called the sexual chakra, because sexual energy is believed to originate there. But the second chakra is much more than simply a sex chakra, it is the seat of creativity. This chakra is locate at the sacrum, which is the densest bone in the spinal column. When the second chakra is closed or blocked, it can make the entire person appear lifeless. A blocked second chakra can cut you off from your emotions, and you may feel removed from an interest in sexuality. On the other hand, if your second chakra is excessively open, emotions can sometimes rule your being, creating an unbalanced system overall.

Water represents emotional depth and instinctive feeling. Water is considered cleansing and regenerative. Water types are fluent, have deep feelings and often strong intuitions or psychic powers as well. Water is the element that sustains life and it is the medium in which life was created. Those of you born under the influence of water act with the fluidity of a river, affecting your environment with your strength and quiet charm. Creative and captivating, diplomatic and intuitive, water individuals are the masters of subtle persuasion. Without even appearing to try, you can gain someone’s trust and affection, and once you’ve got them they’ll follow you anywhere. You make everyone feel special, noting and praising each person’s unique talents.

The moon is the undisputed master of the ocean tides. Water is its domain and it reflects both its subtly and strength. It is associated with a person’s emotional make-up, unconscious habits, rhythms, memories and moods. It is the seat of intuition and inspiration as well as our instincts and it sets the subtle beat for the rhythm of life.

Color
Orange – happiness, confidence, sociable. This is a fun happy color that strengthens our appetite for life. It removes our inhibitions and makes us feel independent and sociable.

manipura 3

THIRD CHAKRA

WISDOM, CLARITY, OPTIMISM, COMMUNICATION
The third chakra is associated with personal power. People who are empowered have high positive energy emanating from their third chakras. Knowing that you can move things forward in your life to order to learn, grow, and live well is closely related to having a clear third chakra. Individual charisma is also generated in this energetic region. Conversely people who don’t trust their own perceptions of feel confident in their own decisions may experience disruptions in this chakra.

When the third chakra is closed or blocked it can lead to a lack of energy, fatigue, and a yearning to be quiet and shut down. During times when this chakra is blocked, confrontations with others can be very hard to initiate or even tolerate. Fire, at its core, symbolizes the life force.

Optimism, enthusiasm and motivation are governed by fire, as is anger and war. Fire people are quite intelligent, impulsive, fervent, and dynamic – true leaders. Fire types burn through life with your fierce charm, your impulsive enthusiasm and your restless emotions. A natural leader, you inspire with your decisive action and dramatic expression; people can’t help but be magnetically drawn to you. Your instinctual, but your mind sparks with new ideas and clever solutions.

Identity, self expression, and hence self-esteem are areas of life central to Fire people and it fuels their creative and inquisitive mature and underlies their need for to be heard and/or seen. Mars, the “Red Planet” is always associated with fire. Indeed, the eternal flame of life which shall not be vanquished is governed fanned and fueled by Mars.

Passion is the fuel for this fire and all emotions that take from it are ruled by Mars. Ruler of the individual ego and its need for self expression, Mars is master of naked force and drive. Mars is the will to express, the passion to create, and the ambition to be.

Chakra_4_Green

FORTH CHAKRA

COMPASSION, BALANCE, SELF-LOVE
The color of nature, balance, peace and harmony. Green brings a feeling of space into our often-claustrophobic city lives. It is nature’s tonic for the heart on a physical level and an emotional level. This vibration connects us to unconditional love and helps us overcome any of our fears associated with the act of loving. When you need to escape but can’t get out to take a deep fresh breath of the color Green.

The fourth chakra, the heart chakra, controls the physical body from the area of the collar bones to a point about 2 fingers above the solar plexus. There is a psychological gap b/t the 3rd and 4th chakra, a crossing point. Here a person might begin to recognize that “self” is constantly changing as it adapts to a constantly shifting spectrum of possibilities in life. The heart chakra is associated with compassion, healing. Green is considered a healing color. Opening the heart chakra, according to Leadbeater, allows a person to sense energy fields and atmospheres. You can also project energy to another person through this center. (My heart goes out to you-could be almost literal.) It is through the heart center and the “3rd eye” center that a person can project rays of energy out to another person. The thymus gland, an actual physical gland located just above the heart, has an effect on the body’s immune system.

The heart center is the regulator of a person’s emotional life. If it is blocked in any way, then emotions will be distorted. The task of this chakra is to integrate and balance the realms of spirit and mind with our physical body (matter).

Elements
Air and Earth energy relating to unconditional love.

The heart chakra is linked to our true soul emotions and our ability to give and receive unconditional love. Green is linked to the heart center and affects the physical heart and blood circulation. Green is found in the center of the spectrum. It is neither a cool nor a warm color and is therefore entirely neutral. Green can be used in healing to compliment any of the other colors. It harmonies its energy, restoring balance and bringing peace. When the heart charka is open it brings with it understanding, sympathy and co-operation with others and with nature. Green is the color of evolution and we have to learn to trust the process of life. Pink is also related to the heart, for pink symbolizes divine love. Open hearted people are generally complete and content in themselves. These people do not find it hard to accept and forgive others.

The fourth chakra is associated with a gradual increasing of consciousness, as it sits between the lower three and upper three chakras. However, primarily, it is the center of unconditional love. When a person becomes disconnected from their heart and the emotions associated with this region, the fourth chakra becomes closed off. This often results in both low energy and shallow breathing. At times when your feeling a fourth chakra blockage, you might even feel that it’s difficult to breath. Emotionally, when this chakra is blocked, your likely to feel wounded or victimized. Often this will be due to trying to work out past problems. If this kind of inner turmoil happens on an ongoing basis without relief, the overall effect can be a feeling of being stuck in the past.

When the energy from the fourth chakra is disrupted, you may have trouble protecting yourself from emotional harm because you generally feel raw and emotionally vulnerable.

The wood element represents the creative force of nature and all things green and growing. It is associated with spring and new life, the colors green an blue. Wood people are creative, strong and resilient – seeking growth and new creation in all they do. All flowers, plants, trees, and things made of wood represent this element. Your open, expansive mind makes you a compassionate and generous friend, colleague and ally.

You understand the inherent value of what you and those around you possess, and your confidence allows you to act upon your beliefs. Venus is the planet of aesthetics, appreciation, and acceptance. While Mars has dominion over our primal passions, Venus rules emotions of a higher vibration. Love, beauty, harmony and serenity are all the domain of Venus. Venus is responsible for moving beyond the self to acknowledge the life all around and accepting that the individual is apart of a greater world. Acceptance leads to appreciation through which we constantly grow. Above all, Venus values true love and its shared sense of oneness.

Chakra_5_Blue

FIFTH CHAKRA

COMMUNICATION, SELF-EXPRESSION, KNOWLEDGE

Tranquil like the ocean, blue relaxes our mental faculties and takes us into states of blissful relaxation. Be careful as too much of this color can lead the “moody blues”. It has a pacifying effect on the nervous system and is great for insomnia. Blue is excellent for speech and communication, it helps us express our thoughts in a clear concise manner.
The fifth chakra is associated with sound in general.

The meaning of your own personal truth is central to this chakra. The more free-flowing the energy of this chakra, the more you are able to speak your truth without fearing the consequences or at least without letting external forces stop you from doing it. When the throat chakra is too open, you may talk more than other people would like and may not listen closely enough. On a different level, the chakra is also associated with personal will. When the chakra is very open your will can be excessively strong; when it is closed, your will can seem nonexistent.

Reason, logic, and all forms of communication are properties of the element Metal. Often dealing with matters of self-worth, metal people are forceful, strong and determined – and can often be driven by a need to succeed. Metal people are determined, self-reliant and forceful. You enjoy the good life and all it has to offer – luxury, comfort and freedom, especially. You’re like a reclusive film star; you want the acclaim, but you also want to be left alone. You create your own success, building your desired destiny with single-minded focus. Others look up to you in awe of your commanding, confident presence. As such, the nature and pursuit of “The Truth” is central to metal types.

The need to impart this understanding to others is also a central characteristic of metal people and contributes largely to the forcefulness of their personality socially. Mercury is the only planet that also has a metal named after it so, like the moon’s reign over the seas, it only makes sense that mercury be given domain over metal. After all, mercury rules communication in all forms. The champion of logic and reason, Mercury rules rational thought. In fact, our learning styles and overall intellect is also a reflection of Mercury.

Blue controls the metabolic rate of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, balancing the bodies’ equilibrium. It is cooling and soothing to the mind and affects your ability to express yourself vocally. This means it helps you to communicate your inner feelings and needs to others. Use blue power where there is difficulty in motivation and difficulty in expressing yourself and also if you are involved in things which have little to do with everyday life. You may also find that if you suffer from sore throats you will often have difficulty in expressing yourself.

Fifth chakra- the throat. It is associated with the element Akasa -relating to things ethereal. It controls the portion of the physical body from midpoint of the nose to the collar bones. Once activated, we become conscious of our mental body(lower are physical, etheric and astral). By activating this chakra, the person becomes aware, for the first time, that the internal worlds are real worlds. The throat chakra also controls that the internal worlds are real worlds. In addition, the throat chakra controls a person’s ability to express himself or herself creatively and effectively and controls facial expression and the non-verbal. It gives a person the confidence to say no, to disagree in a reasoned way. Fear is transmuted so that one is not afraid to express himself fully in all situations. Here we have the realm of consciousness where communication occurs, whether that be within ourselves or to and from another.

Chakra_6 (1)

SIXTH CHAKRA

INTUITION, FEARLESSNESS, IMAGINATION
Electrical Indigo governs the third eye chakra. It clears the psychic currents of the body freeing the mind from anxieties and fears. This cosmic color affects the pineal gland, which influences the nervous, mental and spiritual potential of man. It can also help get rid of obsessions and treat stomach aches and lung complaints.

6th chakra is the eye of wisdom. This chakra is sometimes identified with the pituitary gland, the master gland. This is the third eye. In this center, a person harmonizes the opposing energies, and balances the yin and yang. A person experiences himself in the fullness of the “I Am,” the union of the selves.

The chakra has control over seeing, not only in the physical sense but in the mystical sense. Intuitive seeing, clairvoyance and other forms of knowing and the paranormal are part of this chakra. It controls all higher mental activities. Also, through the power of a person’s mind, he can create new realities for himself on the physical plane. The person activating the sixth chakra would be concerned with things beyond earthly goals, which divert many people from fulfilling their Dharma.

The essence and function of this chakra is to “see” in the sense that we accept that complete vision will include both darkness and light.

Crystal

Musical note

Element
The sixth chakra is associated both with light and with psychic abilities. This chakra provides a source of inner knowing, as well as an objective of how things are. By being focused on a commitment to the truth and flexibility of thought, people with clear sixth chakras usually have a sense of life’s realities that surpass usual conscious barriers. For this reason, the sixth chakra is connected with higher levels of wisdom and a level disposition. It is located between the eyebrows. When this chakra is closed or blocked, you may have trouble seeing the big picture of events that are unfolding in your life. The truth of matters can be dwarfed in details, and you may become easily confused.

Wind or Air is the element of thought and movement. It symbolizes expansive and original thinking as well as wisdom and understanding of things. You are idealistic and philosophical. Your open-mindedness and curiosity are balanced by a sense of knowing and underscores your self confidence in the wisdom of your thoughts. You have the ability to conceptualize beyond what is apparent or visible-hence the fluidity and independence of air – to understand the hidden or deeper meaning of things. At times, this vision combines with your strong intuition to create a powerful conduit for psychic energy and can generate extra-sensory experiences.

Jupiter is the planet of storms. Furious spirals of wind and electricity swirl throughout the planet of expanse, wisdom, and influenced gained from outside forces. As traditional ruler of visionary Sagittarius and transcendent Pisces, Jupiter’s nature is characterized by the phrases “I see” and “I believe”. Jupiter has dominion over our ideal greatness – the higher vibrations of our thoughts and ideas. The ability to see what is unseen comes from the belief in existence beyond that which can be proven and is ruled by Jupiter’s benevolent force. Essential form image.
