Chakras
A few words on Chakras:

Chakras are wheels or orbs of psychic energy located throughout the physical body.
The word Chakra comes from sanskrit and means wheel or disk. They denote a point of
intersection where the psychic self and the physical self connect.
When the total sum of the major chakras forms a vertical column in our body it is called
"Sushumna ".
The Sushumna is the " nadis " or networks of channels by which the prana " life force "
travels up and down through the chakras.
In addition to the seven major chakras arranged along the spine there are also minor
chakras in the hands, feet, genitals, and  so forth. 
There is about 72,00 different nadis in the etheric body. It is these nadis that acupuncturists
access to heal ailments.
The earliest mention of chakras comes from the Indian " Vedas " which mean knowledges.
It is believed that these vedas originated from the oral traditions of the Aryans, who arrived
in India about the second century B.C.E.
Generally seven main chakras are recognized, however I personally work with five additional chakras.
These are the Eighth Chakra which is located about an inch and a half above the head. This chakra serves as a psychic portal. The color is silver.
There is the "Soul Chakra" which is located about an arms length above the head. The color is gold. 
Then there is the Tenth Chakra which is known as the Grounding Chakra. It is located about 1 1/2 to 3 feet below or under the feet. The color is brown.
And there is the Eleventh Chakra which are the chakras of the hands and feet. The color is pink
And finally there is the Twelth chakra, which is actually a collection of 32 minor chakras located throughout the body.
