Chakra Poems and Chakra Haiku

I decided to write 7 poems about Chakras.

There are 7 chakras in the body. Chakras are energy centres in the body which spill out into your aura, the energy field that surrounds your body. They need to be in balance and in balance with one another. You can imagine them as little wheels spinning the different energies around the body. They either spin deosil/ clockwise or they spin widdershins/anti-clockwise.

You cannot see these energy points on a x-ray for example. They affect the endocrine and nerve systems.

Starting at the bottom one, is the root chakra which is situated at the base of the spine; represented by red, it spins deosil.

The next one going up the body is the sacral chakra which is situated just below the belly button. This takes red to orange and spins widdershins.

Then there is the solar plexis situated in your mid section, which is represented by yellow and spins deosil.

Next is the heart chakra, situated on the left side of your chest where your actual heart is. Represented by green (or pink) and it spins widdershins.

Now we move up to the throat chakra, this is in your throat and it is blue and turns deosil.

The third eye chakra is found above the eyebrows in the middle of your forehead and is represented by indigo and spins widdershins.

The crown chakra is on the top of your head and is purple in colour and rotates deosil completing the rainbow synchronicity of the chakras.

The idea is you open your crown chakra to receive pure white light that comes from the Universe, God or Goddess whatever you believe in. This sets the little wheels spinning as it goes through the chakras and into your arms, hands, legs and feet.

Following a suggestion on THE DAILY HAIKU Facebook page from Amanda White that you can write a haiku from a longer poem. So my Chakra Haiku Series was born. So I took each of my chakra poems and found their essence in the writing of haiku. Thank you Amanda!
