Chakra System | Aura & Energy Centres | Meridians

An introduction to chakras

The primary energy centres (chakras) are the non-physical organs of the energy body. There are at least seven primary centres, and over three hundred secondary and minor centres, scattered throughout the human body. All together, they form a complex network of non-physical energy components. These are all joined together by interconnecting pathways, or meridians.

These centres, and their interconnecting pathways (meridians) were charted by the Chinese, and other Eastern races, thousands of years ago.

Modern versions of these charts are still widely used today, in many types of alternative medicine and body work, i.e. acupuncture and reflexology.

There are active centres – transforming and manipulating energy – feeding other energy centres and taking care of life processes – both physical and non-physical. There are storage centres, communication centres, and centres designed to absorb energy from other energy sources around us.
Primary energy centres are attached to major internal organs, glands, nerve ganglia and the spinal cord. Secondary and minor energy centres are attached to joints, glands and nerve clusters, throughout the body.

Some Energy Sources

Food, water, oxygen, sunlight, planetary energy, cosmic energy and  love. Some of these energy sources are very subtle, but all are necessary for us to live a balanced life.

Energy centres are invisible to the naked eye but can be felt, quite strongly, when they are active (as a pulsing, thrumming sensation) . When energy is consciously drawn from one centre to another, through the connecting meridians, this can be felt as: A rushing water sensation, a spreading warmth, a tingling feeling, or a combination of these. Energy centres (chakras) can also be seen – with auric and clairvoyant sight – as whirling vortexes of intensely coloured light.

Every energy centre has important individual functions, in the energy body. It also works in conjunction with all the other major and minor centres. Each centre is an individual, but integral part of the energy body. They all work together, for the good of the whole energy body; just as all the physical organs, brain, heart, liver, kidneys, glands, etc, work together for the good of the whole physical body.

The energy body is extremely complex. It is, in a way, similar to an electronic device. Energy flows into the electronic device, and on through connecting pathways (meridians) that are etched into the circuit board. These connecting pathways (meridians) carry energy on to all it’s electronic components, (chakras), diodes, resistors, capacitors, etc. Energy is continually being changed, enhanced and transformed, by these components; to serve a multitude of different purposes, required by the device, as a whole unit, to function properly.

A single energy centre, is very much like a single electronic component. It takes in energy from the components around it, and changes the value of it. It enhances this energy, in various ways, transforming it into something different, that is needed by the whole unit.

Each energy centre (chakra) takes in the different types of energy it requires, from other energy centres in the energy body, and generates a completely different type of energy – with a different value and colour – according to what is required.

The strength of each primary energy centre, in any particular person, depends upon that person’s individual makeup; their nature, health and life style, as well as their spiritual, moral and psychic development. The energy generated by all the chakras at once, is reflected into the aura, mixing together and causing the dominant hue of the aura. This, dominant hue, is the part of the aura most commonly seen with auric sight.

Chakra” is a Sanskrit word literally meaning “wheel.”  These centers were named as such because of the circular shape to the spinning energy centers which exist in our subtle etheric body, the non-material energetic counterpart to our physical body.  There are seven main chakras and they are located along the spine extending out the front and back of the body.  Each chakra has a number of specific qualities that correspond to the refinement of energy from the base-level material-self identity, located at the first chakras, up to the higher vibration spirit-level awareness of being at our crown.  These energetic centers represent our highest level of integration split, prism like, into a spectrum of colors. Our opportunity in studying them is to learn how to master each chakra’s essence and unite them all into a unified field of brilliance.  As such, we re-unite our disparate parts into a radian light of full self-awareness.

Our Seven Life-Force Energy Centers

The chakras are formed at the junction of three connected energy shafts that ascend the spine, one on each side of the central channel, the Shushumna. The two lesser channels of energy — the Pingala on the right and Ida on the left — run parallel to the spinal cord. Chakras both take up and collect prana (life force energy) and transform and pass on energy. Our material bodies could not exist without them for they serve as gateways for the flow of energy and life into our physical bodies.

Each chakra is associated with a certain part of the body and a certain organ which it provides with the energy it needs to function. Additionally, just as every organ in the human body has its equivalent on the mental and spiritual level, so too every chakra corresponds to a specific aspect of human behavior and development. Our circular spirals of energy differ in size and activity from person to person. They vibrate at different levels relative to the awareness of the individual and their ability to integrate the characteristics of each into their life. The lower chakras are associated with fundamental emotions and needs, for the energy here vibrates at a lower frequency and is therefore denser in nature. The finer energies of the upper chakras corresponds to our higher mental and spiritual aspirations and faculties.

The openness and flow of energy through our chakras determines our state of health and balance. Knowledge of our more subtle energy system empowers us to maintain balance and harmony on the physical, mental and spiritual level. All meditation and yoga systems seek to balance out the energy of the chakras by purifying the lower energies and guiding them upwards.  Through the use of grounding, creating “internal space,” and living consciously with an awareness of how we acquire and spend our energy we become capable of balancing our life force with our mental, physical and spiritual selves.

In order for us to become fully self-realized and in harmony with our physical and spiritual nature our denser lower energies need to be harmonized with the lighter energies of the upper centers. This is to say our survival and base tendencies have to be raised to incorporate a heart-felt spiritual focus expressed in all areas of our being. Indeed, each of the upper-level energies corresponds and refines a lower level counterpart: 7th with 1st, 6th with 2nd, 5th with 3rd.  In the center of our being is full integration into the heart.

Each center has an integral function in creating our energetic balance. It is through the study of our energetic and physical being that we can create health, emotional stability and spiritual bliss. The following chart maps out the primary qualities of each chakra, its corresponding location in the body, color, physical and emotional realms of influence, and its greater significance.

This image shows where the main chakras in are located in your body.

Treating Diseases / Illness With Energy & Spiritual Healing

We believe we are physical bodies. As physical bodies, we expect to grow old, become sick, and eventually die. In addition, we believe that disease originates in our physical bodies.

As it turns out, not one of these beliefs is true. We are, in fact, spiritual beings, not physical bodies. Our physical bodies are merely an illusion we have created for the sake of experiencing this physical world. Since our physical bodies are an illusion, then aging, sickness, and death must also be illusions.

Many people will find these ideas hard to believe or even outrageous. The onset of any illness alarms me. The pain you experience seems real. Invariably, you run to a medical doctor, convinced you might be suffering from cancer or some other catastrophic disease. Like most people, you are certain that something has gone awry in your physical body. Our condition requires “modern” medical treatment. Most often, the treatment you receive consists of pharmaceuticals or surgery.

This treatment may alleviate your symptoms. It may seem to offer a cure. But the truth is: it only “works” because you believe it works. As such, all the pills you take are really just placebos. Like the magic which magicians perform on stage, the treatment you receive provides the illusion of a cure, and it appears real. In fact, it typically ignores the underlying cause of all disease. Yet what alternative do you have but to continue to believe in this kind of magic?

Recently, one of my client underwent surgery to remove his thyroid gland. A goiter had appeared on his neck, and nodules were discovered in this gland which produces hormones to regulate the body’s metabolism. His thyroid gland had become incurably sick and had to be removed. Fortunately, the pathology report he received following the surgery affirmed that the nodules had not yet become cancerous. But this whole experience awoke in him an interest in energetic and spiritual forms of healing.
The terms energy healing and spiritual healing are often used interchangeably, and as healing practices, they do seem to overlap. But they are not synonymous.
Energy Healing. Energy healing consists of numerous well-respected healing techniques that focus on the energy field surrounding and penetrating each of us. This energy field is normally referred to as our life-force, chi, ki, or prana. Energy healing seeks to clear our aura and chakras. It seeks to eliminate blockages in our energy field. These blockages prevent life-sustaining energy from flowing into us, leading to aging, sickness, and death.
Soon after his thyroid surgery, He began to investigate energetic and spiritual healing as an alternative or complement to conventional medical practices. From this investigation taking sessions from me, He learned that all of his chakras were open and functioning well — with two important exceptions: his throat chakra and his heart chakra. Both of these chakras had long been closed. A closed throat chakra — associated with his thyroid gland — blocked his ability to clearly and openly communicate his thoughts and feelings. This led to his thyroid problems. A closed heart chakra blocked his ability to express love and forgiveness. This discovery concerning his throat and heart chakras sparked in him a new-found interest in chakra healing as a form of energy healing.
Spiritual Healing. In contrast to energy healing, spiritual healing places little or no emphasis on the proper placement and movement of the healer’s hands or other such techniques. Rather, it looks beyond disease in the body and instead focuses on the mind where disease originates. Fear, guilt, stress, anger, resentment, and other negative emotions send biochemicals throughout the physical body, leading to diseases such as cancer. To deal with these negative emotions, spiritual healing relies on spiritual practices. It also relies on spiritual studies which help to correct our erroneous beliefs and which encourage our spiritual evolution. As we evolve spiritually, our disease-ridden physical bodies are being transformed into light bodies which are immune to all forms of pain and suffering.
A Course in Spiritual Study helps us to provides an extraordinary explanation of spiritual healing. Indeed, the Course has a great deal to say about sickness and healing. For example, it says we feel guilty because we believe we separated ourselves from God eons ago in an act referred to as “the fall of man.” We think we “sinned” against God by separating ourselves from Him. Overwhelmed by fear and guilt, we expect God to punish us. So we unconsciously seek to punish ourselves before God has a chance to do so. One way we do this is by inflicting illness on ourselves.
The ego benefits enormously from our continued belief in the illusion of separation and sickness. The ego — which can be defined as the separate “me” that I think I am — uses our deep-seated fear of sickness and death to ensure that we continue to believe we are physical bodies, separate from God and each other, weak, limited, and vulnerable. This belief allows the ego to maintain its stranglehold on us.
The ego wants us to remain spiritually asleep so that we don’t discover the truth about ourselves and our true relationship with God. The truth is: We have never really been separate from God or each other. We never really left Heaven. All along, we have been dreaming we are physical bodies, pursuing our separate adventures here in the physical world. The conviction that we are physical bodies and that our physical bodies are real has led us to believe that physical sickness is likewise real.
A Wake-Up Call. People sometimes speak of a serious illness as a “wake-up” call. My Client’s thyroid problem is only the most recent of his wake-up calls. But why should we continue to wait until we become seriously ill before waking up to the truth? We can begin to heal our minds before another serious illness appears in our bodies. We can change our beliefs about what we really are — eternal spiritual beings and not physical bodies. We can awaken from the spiritual amnesia we have been trapped in for such a long time. We can do this in an instant, if we so choose. And when we awaken, we will discover that we can experience perfect health for the duration of our sojourn here in the physical world.
