Chakra meaning - the 7 chakras

What does chakra mean and how many chakras are there?

The meaning of the chakra and the millennia-old chakra teachings have their origins - just like Ayurveda - in the Indian art of healing and in Hinduism. The word chakra comes from Sanskrit and literally means energy wheel, circle or vortex.

7 chakras and their meaning

The human organism has 7 subtle energy points , also known as chakras. A chakra is an energy center at a specific point in the body. There are a total of 7 main chakras, whose chakra points are aligned along the spine like a string of pearls.

The interaction of these seven fine energy centers contributes significantly to our well-being, so that many different processes in the body are controlled. The totality of all 7 main chakras also forms a person's aura. A strong aura gives us physical and mental resilience.

The aura, also known as the 8th chakra or magnetic field, is therefore the unity and connection of all chakras! The more harmoniously the 7 main chakras vibrate, the stronger this personal, energetic and natural protective shield of a person is.

The 8th chakra is the only chakra that is located outside the human body! The circumference of the aura usually varies and, depending on your personal constitution, the aura can extend to over 8 meters. In general, a circumference of 2.70 meters is assumed for the aura. The aura surrounds the physical body like an invisible sheath: it is the electromagnetic field of an individual that Security and Protection in differentiation from others and the protection of the self from external influences.


Chakra meaning and harmonization  

In particular, the seven chakras can be stimulated by the vibration of colors and powerful Chakra symbols are activated and energized with elements from sacred geometry. The combination of the sacred chakra symbols and the energetic vibration of the color frequency give your energy points the right impulse to open up! By opening the chakras, you will achieve greater well-being and inner balance!Chakra meaning

Color is emotion, color is mood - which is why color is also called "the spice of life"! 

With this motivation in mind, I founded Chakmonie®, the first chakra manufactory in Germany, and developed my own design collection to activate the chakras: "Chakra energy to go" as wellness for the soul and mindfulness in everyday life.

The millennia-old traditions of chakra teachings hold many treasures, and I would love to share my expertise with you! For each chakra symbol you will receive interesting information about chakra meaning and colors as well as chakra healing stones and fragrances.

On the Chakra Energy page you will find exciting information about the chakra life cycle.
