The seven chakras are the seven heavenly gates that connect every human being with his cosmic origin. Just as the seven colors of the rainbow are created by the refraction of light, the chakras are the reflection of the radiant cosmic light in man.
These chakras are developed differently in every human being. They unfold "automatically" through meditation and ethical life. However, this can be supported by work on the chakras - for example by wearing jewelry, which emphasizes the symbolism of the chakras.
