The 12 Primary Chakras in Human Body

The 12 chakra system includes the 7 primary chakrs inside the body and 5 transpersonal chakras outside the body. The 7 primary chakras are the root (base), sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye (brow) and crown. The five additional chakras are transpersonal chakras, which  integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience.

I learnt chakra system and deep chakra meditation from the great Indian meditation master Sri Amit Ray ji. His teachings helped me a lot for deeper understandings about the flow of spiritual healing energy in my body and mind. Here, I am giving below the details of 12 chakras in human body.

What are Chakra Systems?

Chakra is the Sanskrit word that means “wheel”. Chakras are energy points in our ethereal or *subtle body. They are part of our ethereal body, not the physical body, and as such, they are the meeting points of ethereal energy channels called nadis.

Chakra comes from the Sanskrit language and Indian religions of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.

Cells and tissues actively generate electrical fields that are detectable on the surface of your skin. Any electrical current also generates a corresponding magnetic field in the surrounding space. This is the law of physics. All organs and tissues produce specific frequencies and biomagnetic fields come together into energy vortexes in our bodies. These energy vortexes are called chakras.

*Nadis are channels in which the life force (prana) (non-physical) or vital energy flows. While there are several chakra systems in the body, only 7 are considered to be the most important of the physical chakras.

In order for our bodies to function optimally, all 7 of the chakras need to be balanced, allowing our energy to flow smoothly throughout the body. If one energy center is not functioning well, the others do not function as well as they should. Some of them can even over compensate and work too hard or too much. This sends our bodies and emotions into a free-fall.

Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color, and sound that it is attuned to. Chakras can be knocked off balance by any number of things, including stress, trauma, grief, toxins, and even the weather.

In our modern society, it’s increasingly difficult to keep them balanced as we’re constantly rushing around, worried about what others think, and not taking adequate time for ourselves to just relax and be still.

Why Is 12 Chakra System Balance Important?

An imbalance in your chakra system means some of your chakras are underactive while others are overactive. Like anything in life, the key is balance, meaning not too much and not too little.

Our chakras transmit and receive energy, which is transmitted into psychic, emotional, and physical energy. Too much or too little energy can affect the way we think, act, and feel.

For example: If there’s too little energy flowing through the Heart Chakra, it can show as selfishness and hard heartedness. If there’s too much energy flowing, it can show as “bleeding heart” where someone who is compassionate and generous can be easily taken advantage of.

Open chakras can leave us wide open to energy vampires. Energy vampires are unconscious or unevolved beings who can, and will, attach to us to use our energy, manipulate our thoughts and emotions. This is why closing or covering your chakras is just as important as opening them.

Discovering the balance between openness to outside and Universal energy, and maintaining our own energetic boundaries, is the ultimate goal of chakra balancing. Being “one with the universe” is the supreme goal, but first you need to learn the difference between yourself, the Universe, and “others” who may not be as spiritually evolved as you, and will only end up draining you, if you’re open to their energetic influence.

Ultimately, each chakra has to be at its correct frequency independently- and it should also be in harmony with each other. They all need to be energized, balanced, and clear. And when the chakras are all in harmony and balanced, the entire energetic vibration of the human body is raised.

The 12 Chakra System

You may be familiar with the 7 major chakras of the human body, but there is actually a 12 chakra system within each of us. Familiarity with the 12 chakra system adds depth, context, and appreciation for your understanding of how chakras work and how to best balance energies in your life.

Restoring the power of your chakras is about learning how to take back control of your health and wellness by learning to work with energy.

The 12 chakra system brings forth the vision of our connection to the entire universe. All living beings are part of a whole. Each of us is grounded to the earth and linked to the universe via a thin cable. That cable stretches from roughly 3 feet below your feet to miles and miles up through the atmosphere and into deep outer space.

Using the 12 chakra system allows us to draw from powerful energies outside of the human body and get in touch with the whole array of dimensions of our human experience.

The traditional 3rd-dimensional chakra colors follow the spectrum of the rainbow, while the extended system may add colors associated with metals and other elements.

You have thousands of minor chakra energetic centers throughout your body, mind, and spirit. By viewing the energy body through the 12 chakra system, you’re able to see and experience your complete and balanced energy body system.

Your entire 12 chakra system can be thought of as one brilliant ascension pillar of white light. It connects you to Divine Source above the Crystalline light of the Divine at the core of Gaia below.

These chakras might not be in an order that you are familiar with. This is because we are outlining the 12 chakra system that now belongs to the ascension process here on Earth. There is a lot of misinformation online now regarding the chakra system.

This new chakra system is outlined by those who are in the ascension process and actively work with the 12 chakra system, archangels, the angelic realm, and higher consciousness.

Chakra 1- Your Earth Star Chakra

As a physical being on Earth, you have a unique connection with the Ascending Earth, and to All That Is.

Your Earth Star Chakra is your personal link to the Earth’s life force, to the crystalline grid, and to the Divine light contained within the Earth.

As your soul progresses through the primary ascension stage, your Earth Star chakra expands in size and power. Its role is to guide you to the location allocated for your mission.

When you are born, your 5th dimensional chakra blueprint is programmed with the content of the life mission for your master self. Your Earth Star chakra knows exactly where you are supposed to be on the planet.

Chakra 2- Your Root Chakra or Base Chakra : Muladhara

Your Root Chakra (Muladhara) is located at the base of your spine, in your pelvic area, and at the center of your body. Your Root Chakra is your grounding chakra which helps you to stay centered, secure, active, energized, and present.

It’s connected to your sense of belonging, feeling grounded, and safety. Your connection to your family, your ancestry, and planet Earth all reside here in your body.

It’s essential to pay attention to your Root Chakra in order for the others to function well. The keyword here is survival. All your survival instincts, resilience, and self-preservation characteristics live here.

If you’ve recently had surgery, a major illness or trauma like physical violence or betrayal, or if you have a history that includes neglect, abandonment, or instability, your Root chakra needs support.

Your Root Chakra allows Divine energy to flow from the Earth up into the rest of your chakras, and is an important foundation for the 7 chakras that are contained within your physical body.

The 5th dimensional base chakra is the anchor point of our ascended mastery. The base chakra frequency tries to draw our attention to an understanding of who we truly are and this is one of the most important lessons that it’s teaching us on the master pathway.

Chakra 3- Your Sacral Chakra : Svadhisthana

Your Sacral Chakra is your center of creativity and sexuality. Dealing with issues of relationships and how you interact socially, it is the dwelling place of your Self.

The Sacral Chakra rules abundance, creativity, wellness, pleasure, and joy. It also controls passion, sex, and sexual pleasure, and brings the lessons of learning to let go.

The 5th dimensional sacral chakra has provided some challenging lessons to those on the ascension pathway. This chakra concerns our sexuality and interrelating with others. Family relationships tend to be formed from this chakra, depending on the karmic blueprint that our soul brings into incarnation.

Chakra 4- Your Navel Chakra

The navel chakra is situated right at the navel (between the Sacral chakra and the Solar Plexus chakra). This chakra governs divine masculine qualities of courage, strength, and protection of the weak summing up to empowerment.

Chakra 5- Your Solar Plexus Chakra: Manipura

The Solar Plexus Chakra is your personal power center, and is a storehouse of energy, both positive (growth and healing) and negative (pain, fear, and stress).

The Solar Plexus is your center of will, and it controls issues from the past as well as ambitions and goals for success in the future. This is the center of your personality as a physical being as well, and its state of balance is directly correlated with your sense of willpower, self-acceptance, and your ambition to succeed.

Chakra 6- Your Heart Chakra : Anahata

Your Heart Chakra is located in the center of your being and is where the physical and spiritual meet, and where your emotions come into play.

The heart controls relationships, and when it’s open, it allows you to flow while relating with others with love and compassion. An open heart chakra allows you to be empathetic to the feelings and emotions of others, while remaining true and in tune with your own.

The heart rules emotional healing, and love of self and others, as well as overseeing your appreciation of beauty, and your willingness for compassion. The heart is a sacred portal, which when open allows you to access the gifts of your higher energetic centers, and in and of itself is the doorway to the realms of angels and Divine love.

Chakra 7- Your Throat Chakra : Vishuddha

Your Throat Chakra is your communication center, and it is the center of truth, personal expression, listening, responsibility, faith, and creativity. Anything dealing with voice (singing, acting, communication, talking, or listening) is ruled by the Throat Chakra.

The Throat Chakra when opened and balanced allows you to speak the truth of Divine love.

Chakra 8- The Third Eye Chakra : Ajna

Your third eye chakra is located in the center of your forehead, and is the center of psychic ability. Your Third Eye chakra also plays a role in your feeling, sensing, and hearing ability. This chakra also connects your energies beyond the physical.

Your Third Eye chakra regulates the decisions you make, and what you consider to be important. It oversees your dreamtime, and connects you with the subconscious mind and with the higher realms of Spirit. Learning, memory, telepathy, clairvoyance, mediumship, aura sensing, are all ruled by the Third Eye chakra.

Chakra 9- Your Crown Chakra : Sahasrara

Your Crown Chakra connects you to the higher spiritual realms. It rules your dreams, visions, hopes, and Divine realizations. Spiritual downloads, connection to Spirit, and alignment with your higher purpose are all possible through an awakened and balanced Crown Chakra.

When your Crown chakra is open and you are linked to the infinite light of the Divine above, anything is possible in your life, including the fruition of your dreams, a true connection with Spirit, and even enlightenment.

Chakra 10- Your Causal Chakra

The Causal chakra is located 3 to 4 inches behind the center of the back of the head. When it’s above the Crown it’s governed by Archangel Christiel and twin flame Malory, and this chakra is white and has feminine qualities of love, compassion, purity, and intuition.

Chakra 11- Your Soul Star Chakra

When activated, Divine light is able to flow through this energetic center to access higher consciousness. Here Divine love can be truly felt and experienced, and awareness of your power as a Divine soul and spiritual being is recognized.

When open, Divine light flows up through this chakra, connecting you to the infinite power of the Divine light above before flowing back down to your entire being to replenish, empower, and enlighten, before flowing once again.

In many senses, your Soul Star chakra could be called your chalice of soul energy as the full essence and power of your accumulated soul experiences are available here. Want to access the Akashic records? This too is possible from within your Soul Star chakra as is total soul realization.

Chakra 12- Your Divine Gateway Chakra

With your Divine Gateway chakra activated, your Divine essence is intact. This chakra center is the Divine light portal allowing you complete connection to Divine Source, and offering an open doorway to explore other worlds and realms.

Here, full ascension, advanced spiritual skills, complete oneness with Divinity and full connection to the cosmos, other worlds, and beyond is realized.

Here you enter the Super Galactic Realms, access the Divine Mother, and the Womb of the entire universe. Activating this chakra allows you to access the Goddess Light, become one with the Mother, and become a star gate yourself enabling peace, balance, and ascension to enter into humanity through you.

All the rays of the Divine, and all the qualities of the Divine represented by the higher vibration beings align with you here.

Activate this chakra, and allow all the blessings to then flow back down. Divine light pouring down through your higher chakras, in through your Soul Star and down your spinal column, through your Earth Star chakra, and directly connecting to the light at the core of the Earth before flowing up in an unending loop of Divine awakening, presence, growth, and advancement once again.

Subtle Body: A subtle body is one of a series of psycho-spiritual constituents of living beings, according to various esoteric, occult, and mystical teachings. According to such beliefs each subtle body corresponds to a subtle plane of existence, in a hierarchy or great chain of being that culminates in the physical form.

The various aspects of the subtle body are frequently described in terms of often obscure symbolism: Tantra features references to the sun and moon as well as various Indian rivers.

Nadis: Nerve, blood vessel pulse; is a term for the channels through which, in traditional Indian medicine and spiritual science, the energies of the physical body, the subtle body and the causal body are said to flow. The nadis are said to connect at special points of intensity called chakras.
