RED, the root chakra, links you to the physical world and serves as the 

foundation to build and evolve your personality. As the electrician grounds 
the junction box with a copper grounding wire, so too this chakra grounds us 

here on earth.

ORANGE, (ovaries/testes) the pro-creative or sacral chakra is the center for 
sexual energy and creativity, balancing the free giving and receiving of 

feelings and emotions in all your relationships.

YELLOW, (spleen) the solar plexus chakra is where your honor, integrity and 

power originates. It is the essence of who you are.

GREEN (thymus) the heart chakra is the centre of the system. Known also as 

the great transformer it generates the ability to love freely without fear or self 


BLUE (thyroid) the throat chakra is where feelings and emotions are 

transformed into expressions. This chakra centre helps you find the balance 
between silence and speech and assists you to say what you honestly feel.

INDIGO (pineal) the “Third eye” between the eyebrows above the nose, 
connects you to your spiritual being and invites intuition and awareness into 

your daily life.

VIOLET (pituitary) the crown chakra connects you to your total being with 
the awareness that you, the universe and the Great Creator are all one.

First relax deeply, as you connect with the heart chakra through your breath. Next 
anchor your life force or light into the centre of the earth through a brief thought 

intention. Slowly focus on your breath and establish quiet, rhythmic breathing.

Become aware of your heart chakra and allow it to expand with each breath you take, 

until it is large enough to overlap the chakras in the throat and solar plexus. Then see 
these three chakras expanding as one with every rhythmical breath. Extend them to 

embrace the third eye and the sacral chakras. Gradually expand again to merge with 

your crown and root chakras and feel your aura swelling outwards. Continue 
expanding your breathing until you experience yourself as one huge chakra. Enjoy 

your breath and your new sense of an expanded self.

When your chakra system is unified and balanced through meditation, you will be 

able to access more and more of the life force. You will sense its beneficial effects by 

enjoying better health and more positive life experiences. When your meditation is 
finished, close down the chakras and seal or protect your aura. Do this by visualizing 

or intending that each chakra closes like a flower.

As was noted earlier, prana is but one name used to describe the life force that 

interpenetrates all existence, everywhere. To more fully access the life force, prana – 

breathing, a powerful form of energetic breath work will be widely practiced by most 
persons during the coming new age.
