“It’s all about conscious living for Rastas,” A lot of Rastas practice yoga and meditation, it’s just a really natural fit thing for them to do;Yoga is a way of life which is practiced by many rastas . The Seven Seals is one of the most prominent themes within the Rastafari movement, As the scriptures did state “Behold the lion of the tribe of judah, the root of david hath prevailed to open the book and to loose the seven seals thereof” The Seven Seals/ Chakras are energy centers within the body of the Rastafari/yogi , they are located in different parts of the bodies .

The Muladhara chkra is located at the base of the spine. The root is where the slumbering kundalini rests until it is summoned upwards. The Seat of physical conciousness: it regulates the sexual organs, in these organs, We find the polirazation of the male and female principles (Ovaries and Testes)

Manipura chkra is found cosmically in the navel center. It governs the larger life passions of wo/man. hunger and power are also governed by this chakra. The manipura chakra influences the endocrine system.

The Anahata chakra is located in the heart region its symbol is the six pointed star, known to the israelites as the star of david; this region governs the emotion of love, and in hebrew the name “David” means love or beloved. This chkra commands the higher emotions and psychic energy.

Visuddha: This is the chkra of the throat center. This is the center of self expression through the logos/word. It represents the power to deal mentally with the physical mind> It also governs the thyroid glands.
Anja Chkra is known as the 3 eye center. it is located between the brow in the area of the pituatary gland. It represents the Inner will, the power of decision, and the ability to understand beyond what the ordinary mind can percieve. One who is concious is rasised to this level is meditative, and on their way to self realization.

SHASRARA: This is the crown chakra, and is the summit of completion, and bliss to such a blessed one. It is the highest conciousness center and its located above the head, acting as a connecting point between the inner and outer phenomena; a link between the individual and universal concious. It is the state of illumined mind, and opens one to the psychic,intuitive planes.
