7 chakras

  Egyptians associated ‘back’ and ‘spine’ with magical powers, and the Egyptian word “psd” for 'spine’ can also mean 'to give light’, 'to gleam’, or 'to shine’. A snake is mostly a living spinal column, something the Egyptians noticed. They understood the vivifying nature of the spine, endowed with :life-giving properties”. Texts from the Old Kingdom on, mention the back (spine) or the bones which comprise it, in contexts, suggest they were all believed to fulfill magic or physiological functions
 
  The Egyptian snake mythology goes beyond deities to encompass another understanding, also expressed in the Hindu concept of Kundalini and the Eastern concept of Chi. It is the life force as it expresses itself, and the cycles it makes. The spine is the central navigating path for the life force, which the Egyptians call Ka. This life force, understood in Hindu mythology as the chakra system, expresses itself through seven energy centers in the astral body which correspond to nerve ganglia branching out from the spinal column. The word “Kindalini in Sanskrit.. kund, “to burn”; kunda, “to coil or to spiral”. The Hindu belief is that within each person resides a sleeping “serpent” coiled up tightly at the base of the spine. When aroused, the serpent force at the base of the spine darts upward, bringing a concentrated field of intelligent, cosmic invisible energy that rises up the center channel of the spine to the brain, where it allegedly awakens spiritual illumination and inner perception.

The Seven Sisters are the seven stars of the Pleiades and they correspond with the seven chakras. The Pleiades are recognized in every culture around the world, and central to the secret knowledge of ancient civilizations.
