The word “Chakra” is a Sanskrit word meaning "wheel" so named by Indian Masters who were able to see and hear vortices of colored spinning energy operating within specific locations within their body during meditation. The drawings we have now come from ancient texts describing these visions.
Symbols shown on the person sitting illustrate the general location and color of each of our 9 chakras. Unique to the illustration is the multi-colored ring around the heart chakra center, as found in the ChakraSynergy crop circle. The lower ring indicates the lower heart chakra, and the upper portion of the ring indicates the upper heart chakra. For more on the Heart Chakra Complex see my video: ChakraSynergy & the Alchemy of Love.
In essence, chakras are non-material “energetic centers of consciousness” that operate within a quantum field of energy that encompasses our physical body. As we have a physical body and physical anatomy, we have a spiritual body and spiritual anatomy that animates our physical body. Chakras are part of our spiritual anatomy.
While we can see and touch our physical body, our chakra system is invisible – yet we can feel and experience the subtle energies located within each of our chakras. To experience each of your chakras, see my video: 2 Minute Spirit Test.
ChakraKey shows us how spirit and flesh are joined together as one Divine Being in a wholly matrimony, that we might experience the wonder and beauty of living in the 3-dimensional realm of Earth. We are designed to survive the wilds of Earth and to co-exist with others in love, peace, harmony, in a state of homeostasis. (Homeostasis, any self-regulating process by which biological systems tend to maintain stability while adjusting to conditions that are optimal for survival. If homeostasis is successful, life continues; if unsuccessful, disaster or death ensues.)

Listed below is a basic description of each chakra with its associated drive, location, color, frequency, purpose, and way we experience love through each energetic center. As you read about each chakra, bring your attention to that area, and see how the description resonates with how you feel.
1. Root Chakra — Drive for Survival
2. Sacral Chakra -Drive for Sex, Physical Pleasure, Creative Expression
satisfies the Sacral Chakra. When we feed too much attention and energy into the Sacral Chakra, seeking ‘more and more’ pleasure satisfies the Sacral Chakra. When we feed too much attention and energy into the Sacral Chakra, seeking ‘more and more pleasure with reckless abandon, the result is a life filled with only temporary pleasures that satisfy for a little while and then are quickly followed by needing ‘more food’ to keep satisfying the delight. This is how addictions and compulsive behaviors are formed. When the desire for sensual delight goes out of control, the only thing that can support the Sacral Chakra continuing its obsession is the shadow side of its counterpart: the Brow Chakra. Thus Illusion/Delusion - the shadow side of the Brow - feeds the Sacral Chakra the energy it needs to continue (in its overdoing). Hence, we have pornography, fantasy in romance (followed by the inevitable disappointment), overeating, and other forms of spending too much of our precious time and energy in seeking intense sensual delight.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra — Drive for Personal Power – to WIN
Plexus Chakra When we feed too much energy into our desire for power in hopes of experiencing more exhilaration, the result is careless risk-taking such as gambling, ruthless ambition, trying to over-power another. What is being violated is the Solar Plexus’ counterpart: the Throat Chakra, the seat of logic and conscience. The compulsion for risk-taking, gambling, or over-reaching one’s power (to experience more and more exhilaration) inevitably leads to loss. The shadow side of its counterpart - the Throat Chakra - is being evoked to boost the Solar Plexus to go into over-drive (rather than maintaining balance). The shadow side of the Throat Chakra is not using logic, not telling the truth, and avoiding the facts of the situation. The consequence of not integrating the Throat and Solar Plexus Chakras is predictable loss of clear conscience.
4. Lower Heart Chakra — Drive for Personal Love
connects with another who makes them feel special and loved, ACCEPTANCE is experienced-- feeling appreciated and part of the clan. This is the face of Love that fills and satisfies the Lower Heart Chakra.
5. CenterHeart Chakra — Drive to Express Love
energy connection. When the Center Heart Chakra successfully makes an impact on another or others-- connects with them on an intense level that creates both people feeling intensely connected in rapt attention, it experiences PASSIONATE INVOLVEMENT-- the most intense and fiery love connection. This is the face of love that satisfies the Center Heart Chakra.
6. Upper Heart Chakra — Drive for Bliss, Unconditional Love
humankind. When the Upper Heart Chakra successfully connects with a spiritual path that it resonates with, or with another person who carries similar inspirational energy, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE is released and experienced. This is the face of love that satisfies the Upper Heart.
7.Throat Chakra — Drive for Communication, to speak one’s truth
mental level and feels understood, RECOGNITION OF A KINDRED SOUL is experienced. This is the face of Love that satisfies the Throat Chakra. When the communication cycle does not form a complete loop of mutual understanding and acceptance, it is lopsided due to too much or too little listening. Too much listening to the thoughts and beliefs of others can result in being brainwashed and losing one’s own innate point of view. Too little listening - or superficial listening - results in not connecting deeply with what the other person is saying and the joy of a true mental rapport is lost. On a more serious level, not listening to what the other person is saying - trying to communicate - leads to arguing and fighting as a technique to try to force the other person to ‘hear’ us (misuse of the Solar Plexus Chakra and of Power). This abuse of power to force another person to accept our position leads to bullying, and in the case of countries, it leads to wars.
8. Brow Chakra — Drive for insight and to see the solution
dreams. When the Brow Chakra successfully connects with an ‘ah ha’ moment, ECSTASY is the face of Love we feel. If the desire for more and more knowledge becomes exaggerated in the quest for the ecstasy of the ‘ah ha’ moment, our lives can become devoid of the sensual pleasures that our bodies need to feel loved. Life becomes dry and lacking the vitality of creative energy. Then the shadow side of its counterpart - the Sacral Chakra - is evoked and we begin to feel shame around the fun of spontaneously being ourselves and participating fully in life. Once again, it is the principle of balance that leads to a steady and truly fulfilling life in which a steady stream of all the different faces of Love can be experienced.
9. Crown Chakra — Drive to connect with the Divine
pleasure of FREEDOM from worldly attachment and thereby a self-mastery in approaching daily life situations. From this vantage point, it is possible to fully experience life without the attachment that leads to suffering when things don’t go as we had planned. Freedom is the face of Love that satisfies the Crown Chakra. If the desire for freedom from material things becomes exaggerated, we can become lost in prayer, meditation, and reaching for ‘higher things’ to the extent of not being able to survive on our own in the material world. We then inevitably evoke the shadow side of the Crown’s counterpart - the Root Chakra - and fear and anxiety can creep into our lives. We have lost the balance of being grounded on the earth and having the full human experience with strength and confidence.
