Below is a series of quotes on chakras from experts and recognized spiritual teachers meant to inspire you in your yoga practice.
“Each of the seven main chakras are governed by spiritual laws, principles of consciousness that we can use to cultivate greater harmony, happiness, and wellbeing in our lives and in the world. "
―Deepak Chopra, MD
“The chakras are specialized energy centers which connect us to the multidimensional universe. The chakras are dimensional portals within the subtle bodies which take in and process energy of higher vibrational nature so that it may be properly assimilated and used to transform the physical body."
―Richard Gerber, MD - Vibrational Medicine
“Your heart chakra is not in your physical body. It is in your subtle physical body, but it comes in contact with your physical body in this location”.
―Frederick Lenz, PHD
“The chakras are very intelligent they are like the software of the whole computer body.“
―Dharma Mittra, Master of Modern Yoga
“Opening your chakras and allowing cosmic energies to flow through your body will ultimately refresh your spirit and empower your life."
―Barbara Marciniac, Author, Channel
“When we develop the heart chakra, we begin to influence the surroundings with our spiritual presence. When we develop the communication chakra, we begin to influence the country with our spiritual presence. When we develop the seventh chakra, we begin to influence the world with our spiritual presence without doing anything.”
― Swami Dhyan Giten, Presence - Working from Within. The Psychology of Being
“Keeping the energy centers we call chakras open and balanced is absolutely essential to being intuitive and also being healthy and fully alive.”
― Catherine Carrigan, What Is Healing? Awaken Your Intuitive Power for Health and Happiness
“Hindu and Buddhist traditions describe a series of four to seven chakras (from the Sanskrit for “wheel”) located along the spine, which are hubs of energy collection and distribution. So elaborate are these descriptions that they each have their own physiological significance, seed syllables, sounds, subtle elements, colors, and even deities. They are said to influence qualities as subtle as emotions and virtues. While I don’t pretend to completely understand these concepts, one cannot help but notice an interesting overlap both anatomically and functionally with major nerve plexuses in the body.
― Lloyd Sparks, MD Neuroscientist
“Chakras are organizational centers for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life-force energy. They are the stepping stones between heaven and earth”.
― Anodea Judith, PHD. The Wheels of Life
