Definitions for "Chakras"
(energy centers inside and outside physical form but most notedly referred to as 7 energy centers)
Etheric vortexes or centers of energy located at various places over the physical body. There are seven major chakras, each serving as an energetic center for a given subtle body (see Subtle Body). Most humans have many more than the traditional seven major chakras that we are familiar with. The chakras beyond the major seven are arranged as progressively larger and larger funnel shaped etheric centers located over the head. This progression of chakras represents the individual’s connection to divine universal energy, call it the "connection or Lineage back to Source." The chakras also serve to vitalize the body by absorbing universal energy. Each chakra has its own particular dominant energetic function. See Energy Construct. Also see Spiritual Lineage
The seven major energy centers in the astral body; they correspond to nerve centers located along the spine in the physical body. They move in ascending order starting with the base of the spine, the genitals, the solar plexus, the heart, the throat, between the eyebrows and the crown of the head.
