Sanskrit Name: Swadhisthana
Location: Lower Abdomen
Color: Orange

A well-functioning sacral chakra helps maintain a healthy yin-yang balance. Although the sacral chakras is primarily considered the sexual energy center, it is also the center where individual creativity resides.

Sacral Chakra Affirmation: My sacral chakra juices are creative and bold.

The sacral chakra affects the sexual organs. The functions associated with this center are emotion, vitality, fertility, reproduction, and sexual energy in general. Likewise, any problems in these functions can be identified and resolved through this chakra. The physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the sacral chakra removes any blockages that may hamper these functions.

Foods that Fuel Your Sacral Chakras
  • Sweet fruits: melons, mangos, strawberries, passion fruit, oranges, coconut, etc.
  • Honey
  • Nuts: almonds, walnuts, etc.
  • Spices: cinnamon, vanilla, carob, sweet paprika, sesame seeds, caraway seeds
Sacral Chakra and Color Therapy Orange is a very high energy color. Its creativity juices are extremely intoxicating and sweet tasting. Wearing orange is fun and can make you feel quite playful. Artists love dabbling with orange hues. Orange screams with sexual energy too, not surprising since orange is associated with the sacral chakra. Because of its highly-charged intensity some people cannot comfortably wear this color. Adorning yourself with an orange accent piece can add a hint of playfulness.

Sanskrit Name: Manipura
Location: Naval
Color: Yellow

The solar plexus chakra defines our self-esteem. The personality (EGO) that develops during puberty is housed in this chakra.

In opening your third chakra, you may reach deep into your own sense of self and find your balance or boundary point. This point is the use of personal power as a weaver of inner and outer power. You have the power to create and accomplish, rather than the power over something or someone. In other words, you have the ability to manifest in the physical world.


The solar plexus chakra is related to the digestive organs. It is associated with action, assertion, empowerment, and ego mastery. It is the area where chi or life force is stored. Malfunctions in the navel chakra may leave you feeling tired, powerless, and withdrawn.


The solar plexus is the driving force to act and to complete the conceptualization, the visualization that we have in our lives. It is where we find the human talent of commitment.


Solar Plexus Mediation

Sit back, relax, and take in an easy, deep breath. Release your muscles. Yo do not have to exert any effort to sit or lie there. Allow yourself to be fully supported by the chair or floor. Take in another gentle, deep breath and release as you exhale. Now turn your attention to your solar plexus. This is the area of your body between your chest and abdomen. Picture a vibrant, glowing sun in your solar plexus. Feel its warmth and energy. Focus on this sun for a moment. You may never have paid attention to this area of your body before. This sun represents your inner strength, your intuition, and all your inner resources. Allow your sun to glow brighter and stronger each time you pay attention to it.

Focus On Healing The Will Center

The Will is directly connected with the solar plexus chakra. In order to honor and awaken this place in ourselves, emotional release is essential. Flower essences lend relentless love and support to encourage us through our process of self understanding and acceptance, discernment and integration.

Sanskrit Name: Anahata
Location: Heart
Color: Green or Pink

The heart chakra is considered to be the love center of our human energy system. Among others, love, heartbreak, grief, pain, and fear, are all emotions that are felt intensely within this energy vortex. For this reason, energy-based therapies that focus on balancing the heart chakra are often the purest healing. Learning self-love is a powerful initiative to undertake in order to secure and maintain a healthy heart chakra.


The heart chakra is the place where unconditional love is centered. Unconditional Love is a creative and powerful energy that may guide and help us through the most difficult times. This energy is available in any moment, if we turn our attention to it and use it to free us from our limits and fears.


The heart stands at the center of all energies and unifies our being as a whole. It is the point around which all the energies turn. A discord or imbalance in the heart chakra will adversely effect all the other centers. A clearing of the heart chakra will improve the interaction of all the other centers. It is important to maintain a balance to all the energy centers so a healthy level of awareness is manifested in our everyday lives.


It is imperative, now, that we keep our hearts open, and replace judgments with acceptance. It is vital that we learn to love even more, and to allow ourselves to be loved. We must relate in our relationships, and use communication to clear misunderstandings and disagreements. When we can keep ourselves in a loving space, we will have a positive effect on our environment, a healing effect.


When the heart chakra is out of balance you may feel sorry for yourself, paranoid, indecisive, afraid of letting go, afraid of getting hurt, or unworthy of love. Physical illnesses include heart attack, high blood pressure, insomnia, and difficult in breathing. When the heart chakra is balanced you may feel compassionate, friendly, empathetic, desire to nurture others and see the good in everyone. Body parts for the fourth chakra include heart, lungs, circulatory system, shoulders, and upper back.

Sanskrit Name: Vishuddha
Location: Throat
Color: Sky Blue

The throat chakra is our voice center. It is through our spoken word that we express ourselves to others. The healthfulness of this chakra is signified by how openly and honestly a person expresses himself or herself. A challenge to the throat chakra is for us to express ourselves in the most truthful manner. Falsehoods and half-truths energetically pollute the throat chakra. This behavior violates both our bodies and spirits. Repressing our anger or displeasure by ignoring our feelings through evasive sweet talk, or silence, will manifest into throat imbalances such as strep throat, laryngitis, speech impediments, and so on.


The throat chakra is associated with the vocal cords and the thyroid gland. It is the chakra of communication, telepathy, and creative expression. Unexpressed emotions tend to constrict this energy center. Your inner truth is your sense of what is correct-your innate tendencies and inclinations. In every situation, we should be humble, open, and receptive, suspending all previous judgments in order to grasp the inner truth of the matter. If we rely on the truth of our inner voice to guide us, our actions will be in accord with the times.


Kyanite Aligns Throat Chakra

Kyanite is wonderful when used as a shield. It does not retain negative vibes and they bounce off. A good stone for aligning all of the energy centers but is particularly good for the 5th chakra or throat chakra. It is a powerful stone to access the Universal Energy during healing. Blue (color) relates to your spiritual side. It helps you to attune while searching for inner peace.


Feeding Your Throat Chakra

Speaking One's Truth
  • Liquids in general: water, fruit juices, herbal teas
  • Tart or tangy fruits: lemons, limes, grapefruit, kiwi
  • Other tree growing fruits: apples, pears, plums, peaches, apricots, etc.
  • Spices: salt, lemon grass

Sanskrit Name: Ajna
Location: Brow
Color: Indigo

The third eye chakra is also called "brow chakra." Our mental calculations and thinking processes are functions of the third eye chakra. We are able to evaluate our past experiences and life patterns and put them into perspective through the wisdom of the third chakra's actions. Our ability to separate reality from fantasy or delusion is connected to the healthfulness of this chakra. It is through a receptive brow chakra that auric hues and other visual images are intuited clairvoyantly.


he sixth chakra is classically located at the point between the eyebrows, which yogis refer to as the "third eye point," and contains intuition. This is where we find our sense of physical vision, and our extrasensory talent of vision as well.


The sixth chakra is that of the brow, third eye, or place of "shamanic seeing." Located between and slightly above the eyebrows, it is indigo in color. This energy center is closely associated with imagination, inner vision, and psychic abilities. It is related to the pituitary gland. It functions as a link between the inner world and the outer world. Malfunctions of the brow chakra commonly manifest as headaches and eye tension. Resonating this chakra remedies any problems in function and opens the door to a reality separate from the ordinary world.


Clairvoyance is the gift of second sight. Clairvoyance is a visual form of ESP (extrasensory perception) involving perceiving or intuiting information by way of seeing auras, colors, images, or symbols via third eye sensory.


Visualize Youself Well

Visualization for healing is a simple process.
  • Think of or speak your intention out loud.
  • Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the healing process or as you want to be.
  • Watch as your body heals you
  • Feel the healing taking place
  • Know the healing is being accomplished

Sanskrit Name: Sahasrara
Location: Top of Head
Color: White or Violet

When functioning optimally, the crown chakra allows inner communications with our spiritual nature to take place. The opening in the crown chakra (located in the same area as the soft spot on a baby's head) serves as an entryway wherein the Universal Life Force can enter our bodies and be dispersed downward into the lower six chakras housed below it. This chakra is often depicted as a lotus flower with its petals open to represent spiritual awakening. The crown chakra could also be considered the bottomless well from which intuitive knowledge is drawn.


The seventh or crown chakra is located at the top of the head. The Hopi call this energy center kopavi, meaning "the open door" through which higher spiritual knowledge is received. The crown chakra is associated with the pineal gland, the color violet, full enlightenment, and union with the cosmos.


Visualizing the White Light

Visualise the white light coursing like a liquid through the crown chakra. Visualise white light coursing like a liquid through the third eye. Visualise white light coursing like a liquid through the throat chakra. Visualise white light coursing like a liquid through the heart chakra. Visualise white light coursing like a liquid through the solar plexus chakra. Visualise white light coursing like a liquid through the spleen chakra the sexual centre. Visualise white light coursing like a liquid through the root chakra. Visualise your spiritual chakra centres as being a hollow infrastructure, then as each one fills up with liquid white light. The liquid white light coursing into that chakra and as it does use your awakening perception to inhale breath into that chakra.


Violet Flame of Tramsmutation

The purpose of the violet flame is to free us of negative energies we are holding on to that are born from old karma or past negative influences. Connecting to the violet flame awakens your connection the Christ Consciousness (God Source) and transmutes negative thoughts into positive thoughts. Feelings of guilt turn into acceptance, fear of fate become desired opportunities, etc. The violet flame can be called upon through meditation and incantations.

Mudras for chakra activation

http://healing.about.com/od/east/ig/Mudra-Gallery/

Also here is some additional info:

The Earth Chakra: Located at the feet, just inside the heels, the earth chakra resonates to the frequency of the colour magenta/ brown. Its significance is in grounding and connection to the Earth.

The Thymus Chakra: At the thymus gland, just above the heart, the thymus chakra is the colour turquoise / violet - pink. It is a center for spiritual awakening, drawing in energy from the cosmos, as well as of creative communication and insight.
The most important of the emerging transpersonal chakras are the Thymus or etheric heart - In the upper chest which governs compassion and inner peace and the connection to world soul. Eighth Chakra, (Not always recognized).

Higher Crown/Soul(Core) Star Chakra Entire Energy Field “I AM” Element: Unconditional Love
Higher Crown/Soul (Core) Star Chakra is a portal through which very high frequency light can enter our etheric field. Sometimes referred to as the eighth chakra, it is the first of the non-physical chakras or transcendental chakras above your head. The Soul Star Chakra contains information relating to your soul. Through this chakra the soul braids into the physical body at the time of incarnation, and it is through this chakra the soul leaves the physical body at death. Balancing this chakra increases direct contact with the higher self. Activation and clearing of this chakra opens a cosmic doorway to all of the light where key information is then downloaded into your lower chakra system which initiates the process known as "light body activation", "ascension into cosmic consciousness" or enlightenment. Some believe this chakra was used widely in the Golden Age of Atlantis. This center helps move our spirit into form on the earth plane, as we are in essence, materialised spirit.
