Introduction to 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
