The 12 Chakra System Explained

The chakras are energy centers, which are part of the subtle body, one that cannot be seen. However, they are illustrated as colorful symbols that you can find on the walls of most yoga studios and spiritual stores.

The chakras originate from India, with roots in Hinduism and Tantra. What we know about them today is limited, including how many there are. Some people claim there are 7 main energy centers, while others say there are 12 chakras. However, according to some ancient texts and scriptures, there could be over 100. In this blog post, we’ll explore the 12 chakras system.

How Many Chakras Are There?

The most familiar understanding is that there are seven main chakras, which run from the base of the spine to the top of the head. These seven chakras have associated colors, mantras, symbols, frequencies, and elements, and all govern particular parts of our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Before we go further, let’s take a brief look at the seven major chakras:

  • Root Chakra – Located at the base of the spine. Governs our safety, security, and sense of groundedness.
  • Sacral Chakra – Located in the lower belly near the sexual organs. Responsible for creativity, pleasure, passion, sexuality, and emotions.
  • Solar Plexus Chakra – Located in the upper abdomen above the belly button. The center of our personal power, strength, courage, and resilience.
  • Heart Chakra – Located in the center of the chest. Governs our ability to love and be loved, feel compassion, empathy, gratitude, and joy, and forgive others.
  • Throat Chakra – Located in the center of the throat. Responsible for communication and self-expression.
  • Third Eye Chakra – located between the eyebrows. Center of our intuition, vision, and imagination.
  • Crown Chakra – located above the top of the head. Governs spiritual connection and enlightenment.

The seven main chakras run up the spine. However, the rest are distributed around body parts like the feet or knees or located off the physical body.

One of the newest beliefs among new-age practitioners is the existence of the 12 chakra system. ​​This includes the seven major chakras and an additional 5 (or 6) outer chakras (transpersonal and sub-personal). These higher chakras exist outside the body and represent our interconnectedness with higher spiritual realms.

Order Of The 12 Chakra System

When it comes to the 12 chakra system, there are several interpretations on the order of the additional chakras. However, one common interpretation is as follows:

  • 1st Chakra: Earth Star Chakra
  • 2nd Chakra: Root Chakra
  • 3rd Chakra: Sacral Chakra
  • 4th Chakra: Solar Plexus Chakra
  • 5th Chakra: Heart Chakra
  • 6th Chakra: Throat Chakra
  • 7th Chakra: Third Eye Chakra
  • 8th Chakra: Crown Chakra
  • 9th Chakra: Soul Star Chakra
  • 10th Chakra: Universal Chakra
  • 11th Chakra: Galactic Chakra
  • 12th Chakra: Divine Gateway Chakra

Another interpretation of the 12 chakra system actually features 13 chakras, but the Earth Star Chakra is named Chakra 0. This variation then includes the five chakras above the crown.

  • Chakra 0: Earth Star Chakra
  • Chakra 1: Root Chakra
  • Chakra 2: Sacral Chakra
  • Chakra 3: Solar Plexus Chakra
  • Chakra 4: Heart Chakra
  • Chakra 5: Throat Chakra
  • Chakra 6: Third Eye Chakra
  • Chakra 7: Crown Chakra
  • Chakra 8: Soul Star Chakra
  • Chakra 9: Spirit Star Chakra
  • Chakra 10: Universal Chakra
  • Chakra 11: Galactic Chakra
  • Chakra 12: Divine Gateway Chakra

Because more is being discovered about the chakras beyond the seven major chakras, you may also come across other variations of the chakra system that feature a different order and different chakra names.

The Meanings Of Chakras 0 And 8 thru 12

Every chakra has a unique purpose and possesses specific qualities that affect a particular part of our mind, body, or soul. Let’s discuss what we know about each part of the higher chakra system.

Here you are able to bring healing, insight and growth from the highest realms into your present existence.
