The first thing you really need to do is familiarize yourself with what Chakras are in order to understand the power of this meditation. There are seven chakras that run up the spine, from the base of the spine to the top of the head. The word chakra means wheel of light, so if you could actually see them, they would be seven light wheels centered in the middle of the body.
While the subject of what chakras are and what each wheel represents would take more time that we have here, here are the basics. The first chakra is called Muladhara, the root chakra, and it is found at the base of the spine, near the tail bone. This is represented by the color red. It is the chakra that grounds us to mother Earth. This is the chakra that helps us manifest things in the real world.
The second chakra is the Svadisthana, or sacral chakra. It is positioned just two in below the belly button, and is represented by the color orange. This is where creativity is located. This chakra is the emotional center of the body. The third chakra is the Manipura chakra, the solar plexus. It is found just below the breast bone, centered behind the stomach. This is where ego, passions, as well as anger are located. This is also where you are receptive to spiritual guides and psychic development.
Anahata is the fourth chakra, found behind the breastbone, near the shoulder blades. This is the heart chakra, and is represented in green. It is the center of spirituality, compassion and love.

Too much energy in one chakra can cause problems, some of which you may not even be aware of. For an example, let’s take the root chakra, Muladhara. This is where you experience fears. A lot of energy is used in the negative emotion, which can throw this chakra out of whack. This means that you would have an excessive amount of fear, but this also depletes energy from the other six. If you body’s chakras are out of alignment, you can experience anything from unknown anxieties, body aches and pains, or even mental illness.
One the other hand, having an aligned chakra energy will give you a greater sense of well being, of being able to accomplish anything you set in front of you, and can help keep physical illnesses away, because the mind, the spirit and the body are attune to one another.
