The word Chakra means spinning wheel. Yogic meaning of this word is “Vortex” or “Whirlpool”.
There are seven important chakras, each associated with a different part of the body along the spine from the perineum to the crown of your head. Each chakra is associated with a particular body location(nerve plexus), a color, a central emotional/behavioral issue, as well as many other personal aspects including identity, goals, rights, needs, behavioral characteristics etc.
One of my personal research involves connecting the psychic/subtle chakra energies of the physiological & psychological dimensions of existence along with the organizational needs.
In this article I’m going to share with you, how the human needs and the organizational are interconnected through Chakras along with some vital information about them.
