According to the science of Kundalini Yoga, there are chakras or energy fields between the spine and the human energy field. These energy spots vibrate at different frequencies and hold certain power within them. This powers enable us to better our experiences on Planet Earth.

Now, yoga professes that there are eight energy centers or Chakras in the human body, namely, Root chakra, Sex chakra, navel Chakra, Solar Plexus, Heart Chakra, Throat chakra, Third eye, Crown Chakra and the aura. These chakras are stated in an ascending order of their presence in the body.
The Muladhara, root or the first chakra, is located at the base of the spine and at the perineum. The name means support or foundation. The primal relationship is with the physical reality. The Swadisthana, or the sex chakra, is located at the the pelvic area between the pubis and the navel. The chakra enables us to bond freely with others without loosing our identity. The third chakra is the Manipuraka, also known as the navel chakra. Activating this chakra helps us to connect with our inner energy and power. The fourth chakra is the solar plexus chakra. This chakra is located between the navel and the heart. Activating this chakra enables a person to overcome the negative emotions and turn them into positive emotions. The Anahatha or heart chakra which is located at the heart enables a person to attach himself/herself towards the unbiased universal love.
Next in line is the Visudha or The Throat chakra. It is located at the base of the neck between the collar bone and the shoulders. Activating the chakra enables a person to fearlessly express the truth and also hear the sound of the universe.
