Chakras 101Written by Sam Stevens
The chakras are different coloured energy centres that originate from seven different points in our body. Chakra is a Sanskrit (East Indian) word that means "Wheel". For millennia chakras have been visualized as round balls, blossoms or spheres of light that can open, close, darken, brighten and spin! The location of each of seven chakras represents a different aspect of human experience. Our emotions, ability to connect with others and physical health are thought to be reflected in condition of each chakra. Seeing your own chakras requires mental focus and powers of meditation. Remember these are imaginary entities that were invented by great mystics thousands of years before medical technology. The manipulation of these spheres or wheels of light, particularly brightening and opening of them is thought, by many, to relieve a variety of ailments. There are seven main chakra centres in human body and correspond with seven colours of rainbow or light spectrum: The Red Chakra, also often referred to as Root, First or Base chakra is at base of trunk of body and is thought to correspond to sex drive and to primal drives such as desire to procreate, survive and destroy. This is chakra to work on if you are having troubles with your health. The Orange Chakra, sometimes called Second, Sexual or Spleen chakra is in abdomen and relates to lower digestive organs. It corresponds to our ability to physically digest and eliminate food, emotionally digest events and process them in a healthy way and emotions such as joy or affection. This is chakra to work on if you are having trouble letting go. The Yellow Chakra, sometimes called Third, Stomach or Solar plexus chakra is located in upper stomach area just below rib cage. It is centre where we connect to others on an astral level and it relates to our abilities to transform or manifest events. The Green Chakra is located in chest and is related to lungs and heart. It is sometimes called Fourth or Heart chakra. It represents flow of energy and flow of love in our lives as well as our ability to connect to others.
Basic Palmistry IWritten by Sam Stevens
Palmistry is an ancient art and one that has many systems of interpretation. It is also an intuitive art that is easily learned just by learning a few basics about symbolism that is represented by lines that run across palm, mounts (or fleshy parts) of palm and structure of fingers. In some systems, right hand represents who you are today and left hand, everything that you were born with when you came into this world. For "palmistry on run" though it is best to read hand that person writes with, as that would be considered to be dominant hand. In palmistry, hand as a whole is divided into three different sections. The Fingers represent mind and higher self. The middle of palm represents day-to-day life and conscious mind. The lower half of hand represents primal instincts, health and basic drives of subconscious. Palmistry is all about proportion, symmetry and distortions of what would be considered to be a perfectly formed hand. You can tell a lot about a person by looking at their thumb and fingers. The thumb has three phalanges. Its tip represents will power. A club shaped thumb indicates criminal tendency. Pointed or long tips indicate creativity and intelligence. The middle phalange represents logic. The longer phalange, more efficient and strategic person. The fleshy part at base of thumb is called Mount of Venus, which represents empathy, emotion, grace and compassion. The fatter and fleshier this part of hand is, more sensitive and compassionate individual. The index finger correlates to planet Jupiter and indicates good fortune and career. The middle finger is related to Saturn and limitations and restrictions in life. The ring finger is called Apollo. It relates to self-expression and intelligence. The pinky finger belongs to planet Mercury, which is about your ability to communicate with others and sustain relationships. The longer and straighter finger, more good fortune a person can expect to have in these areas. All these fingers have their own mounts, which are located on palm right below each one. The more developed or pronounced these fleshy mounds are beneath finger, more developed that trait is in a person. The Mount of Jupiter below index fingers represents ambition, leadership, religion, honor and love of nature. The Mount of Saturn below middle finger represents sanity, sobriety, wisdom, introversion and karmic events such as good or bad luck. The Mount of Apollo below ring represents confidence, creativity, impulsiveness and extroversion. The Mount of Mercury below your little finger has to do with ability to sell yourself, communication, quickness, connection as well as writing and mathematical abilities. Sometimes Mount of Mercury will be feathered with short vertical lines that are called Lines of Affection. These sometimes indicate number of deep emotional connections or significant relationships in a person's life. Right below Mount of Mercury (below little finger there are two more mounts. About half way down is Mount of Upper Mars, which reflects your temperament: if this mound is fleshy then person tends to be more courageous or war-like. Below that, near base of hand is Mount of Luna (also known as Mount of Moon). This mound reflects such qualities as generosity, warmth and imagination. If it is over pronounced it can indicate a tendency to madness.
