The Chakras – Fourth or Heart Chakra
This is the fourth in a series of articles on the chakra system. The seven major chakras are aligned along your spine. The first chakra is located at the tip of the tailbone, the second is about 2 inches below the belly button, the third is at the solar plexus, the fourth is the middle of the chest, the fifth is at the base of the neck, the sixth is in the center of the head, behind the eyes, and the seventh sits flat on the top of the head. All except the seventh go through the body, front to back. Their functions range from completely physical- the first chakra, to completely spiritual- the seventh chakra and they impact every aspect of life. Each chakra has a function that directly contributes to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. The chakras hold information from this lifetime as well as previous lifetimes and not all of it is empowering. They can hold other people’s energy as well as your own. They are in constant motion, sending and receiving energy, and they are constantly reacting to what is happening in your life.
