There are 7 major Chakras related to our emotional, mental, and physical interactions. They are the openings that allow our energy to flow through our aura. Chakras are the center of our energy and located in various areas of our body.
The root chakra which is the first chakra is positioned on the outside of the body, between the thighs, halfway between the knees and the physical body. The crown chakra is the 7th one and is located on the top of the head. Between those 2 chakras are the others. They are in alignment, positioned in sequences long the skull, neck, and spine.
While we cannot see chakras with our eyes, the trained energy worker sees them intuitively. Each of the 7 major chakras has a function and a purpose. When all 7 chakras are in line and working together, we are at a best.
A Chakra’s Appearance
In drawings or paintings, chakras are depicted as lotus flowers or wheels with each chakra from the others. However, if they were visible to the human eye, you would seem them blended together.
The energy of chakras is centered with a constant flow, providing us with a living pulse. They open, close, expand, and retract. As a chakra expands its boundaries and becomes separated from the other chakras, they become blurred. But when they are interacting and moving together, the visual would be that of a colorful imagery that you would see through a kaleidoscope.
For image sake, picture when the root and sacral chakras intermingle, they create a bright blood-orange color. Whereas when the heart and throat chakras merge, the shade is a blue-green. When one of our chakras shuts down, a healthier one will expand and compensate the lower energy level for the stressed one.
The chakras are team players, but as in any other aspect of team players, a healthy chakra can only put out extra energy for a period. After a while, the relationship between the healthy chakra and the stressed chakra becomes strained and all the chakra suffer. For a healthy you, each of chakra must work together to defeat diseases and illnesses.

THE FOOT CHAKRA
This chakra is also considered a root chakra and may have one, two, or three spokes.

Each foot has the chakra in the arch and is in a deep brown or deep green color to a pale yellow.
Energy is passed with his chakra to the entire energy system and into the earth. It is our grounding point that transforms our body energy into earth energy and the other likewise from the earth to our body.
