The Body’s Energy Field

The body’s energy field has been studied for thousands of years. Many traditions use the chakra system, and so does Shamanism. Reiki healers, chiropractors, massage therapists, and acupuncturists use the energy fields in the body to heal. There is an abundance of resources and information on the internet and in books on chakras. I encourage you to explore for a deeper understanding.
My basic explanation follows the illustration, starting at the bottom and working up.

  • The Root Chakra is located among that tripod of bones upon which we sit. It is instinct and survival and security.
  • The Second Chakra is located in the abdomen. This is the center for emotion, sexual energy, and creativity.

  • The Third Chakra is located in the solar plexus, or the gut. Mental functioning, power, control, and freedom to be oneself are located here.
  • The Fourth Chakra is the heart chakra. Love, balance and compassion reside here.

  • The Fifth Chakra is the throat chakra for speech and self expression.
  • The Sixth Chakra, often called the Third Eye, is located in the middle of the forehead. Here Intuition, psychic abilities, and imagination reside.

  • The Seventh Chakra is known as the Crown Chakra, located at the top of the head. It is known for spiritual understanding and connection.
