David Gordon White traces the modern popularity of the seven chakra system to Arthur Avalon's The Serpent Power, which was Avalon's translation of a late work, the Satcakranirupana. Below is a description of the seven chakras, with various associations.

How to open the chakras

I am interested in your statement about "quantifying what you have seen" do you care to be more specific?
Many cultures refer to serpent energy and chakras - and yes the numbers vary depending on path.
If you could give me an idea what you are trying to quantify I might be able to help you.
For example are you trying to open your third eye or understand Psychic phenomena?
Or are you doing this for health reasons - some believe certain ailments are tied into respective chakras and that having them blocked or not open results in their being blocked and the aliments ascribed to them manifesting.
Opening them - can be done through types of meditations, certain energy healings - or IMO psychological introspection. If you can share your goal I might be able to advise you as to direction.
