Tantra means "weave."
The chakras, an ancient system of energy centers in and about
our bodies, are as spools, providing yarn that forms the warp
and woof of our consciousness, our "tapestry", so
to speak. The chakras (belongingness, sensuality, empowerment,
love, communication, clear thinking and seeing and spiritual
connectivity) thread through our lives. Consciously woven into
our existence, we weave a magic carpet with balance, integration,
beauty, harmony and expansion for individuals, relationships
and humanity.The seven main body associations, the origin spools,
for the chakras are: perineum, genital, solar plexis, heart,
throat, brow and crown. From the perineal chakra come the filaments
of belonging, feeling healthy, experiencing security and safety.
The genital chakra can spin a thread of sensuality and sexuality
to every part of the life you weave. Empowerment, the third
chakra-spool, gives you the hutzpa to take the joy and authority
available to you. From your heart chakra, you connect in love.
Image the threads of authentic communication spreading from
your throat to every area of your life. For your third-eye,
the thread is vision, clarity, intellect, intuitiveness. The
Crown Chakra, pictured as a thousand-petaled white lotus that
blossoms from the top of our heads, turns into a stream of white
light, and mingles with the crown lights of others and the Universe.The
yin/yang symbol signifies harmony between male (yin) and female
(yang), both internal and external. This dichotomy, represented
by the polar opposites of black and white shows balance and
integration. In this perfect sphere, both sides are equal in
size plus contain elements of their antithesis represented by
the white within the black and black within the white.
