The Podz are seven imaginary creatures created by Dr. Wolfe to teach her son Samm life lessons in expressing emotions. The Podz are based on the 7 Chakras, the 7 energy centers of the body. The 7 chakras also represent the 7 colors of the Rainbow! The Podz derive their names from the 7 Seed Sounds of the Ancient Sanskrit language, known as a Bija Mantra. Bija means Seed, and is associated with the lotus petals of each chakra. A Bija mantra or Seed Sound is a sound, with one syllable, that when chanted causes vibration in the chakra frequency. Chanting a mantra or reciting a poem can cause a shift from negative to positive energy, from negative to positive emotion.
