Chakras-Types and Details.

A short lesson on the chakras

 

It is impossible to discus tantric sex without an introduction to the chakras. Chakras are rotating energy channels above, around, and within the human body that takes care of the organs of their respective regions (fig.). The energy generated by each chakra is associated with a particular color. Some of the games and exercises included in this book use the teaching of the chakras to help us guide sexual energy through our bodies (using spiritual images) and to help us understand their different effects within our being.

 

I will offer here only a short list of the characteristics associated with each chakra.

Locations mean the physical level where the specific energy source of the chakra is located and tangible. Each energy channel supplies specific body parts with life energy; you become more conscious of these body parts when concentrating on this chakra.
Sense means the action and the corresponding sense organ that are most stimulated by the chakra.

Color is the composition of light that is stimulated by the energy of this chakra and what is seen or visualized by most people in relation to this chakra.

Psychic function refers to the kind of emotionality, the psychic mood that corresponds to the Chakra’s character.

These short descriptions and pictures contain many centuries’ worth of experience. However, they are not to be confused with your reality! Experiment with them, but rely on your own experiences rather than projecting others’ experience onto yourself. Allow yourself to get to know the depths of your physical self- your living being-better and better.
