Chakra Wisdom....

Root Chakra (Muladhara)

~Surely a man needs a closed place wherein he may strike root and, like the seed, become.  But also he needs the great Milky Way above him and the vast sea spaces, though neither stars nor ocean serve his daily needs.~
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

~To fear is one thing.  To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.~

~The greatest hazard of all, losing one's self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all.  No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss - an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. - is sure to be noticed.~ 
Author Unknown

~Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness.~
  Shakti Gawain

Heart Chakra (Anahata)

~The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience.  Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around.... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing.~  
Larry Dossey

~The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.~
Mother Teresa

~Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.~
Zora Neale Hurston

Og Mandino

Throat Chakra (Vishudha)

~Keep your words soft and tender because tomorrow you may have to eat them.~
Author Unknown

~Talking is like playing on the harp; there is as much in laying the hands on the strings to stop their vibration as in twanging them to bring out their music.~

~It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.~
Henry David Thoreau

~We have five senses in which we glory and which we recognize and celebrate, senses that constitute the sensible world for us.  But there are other senses - secret senses, sixth senses, if you will - equally vital, but unrecognized, and unlauded.~
Oliver Sacks

~Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.~
Florence Scovel Shinn

~The thoughts that come often unsought, and, as it were, drop into the mind, are commonly the most valuable of any we have.~
John Locke

Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)

~It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts.~
K.T. Jong

~We can be Knowledgeable with other men's knowledge, but we cannot be wise with other men's wisdom.~
Michel de Montaigne

~There are joys which long to be ours.  God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.~
Henry Ward Beecher

  1. Namaste Jennifer,

    This is an amazing post on the charkras and the beautiful photos of the beej mantras.As a hindu from India, I find it intriguing that westerners are adopting hinduism and practicing it more religiously than native hindus. Its inspiring. I wanted to contribute to the cause by mentioning that you can listen to excellent explanation of srimad bhagvatam puran at Also, there are 24x7 internet radio stations on hinduism at

    Wish you the best of Luck.
