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.

Aura & Chakras | Meridians |How they work | Distant Healing|

What is Aura and Chakras?

Aura is a field of subtle luminous energies surrounding your body. These energies generate, hold and project your thoughts, emotions and beliefs. When your energy is harmonious you will experience peace and tranquillity, joy, sense of wellbeing. But if you are under stress, hold self limiting beliefs and other blocks within your energy field they will be projected into your life as self destructive patterns, difficulties, arguments and other negative experiences. Some times we are not even aware of the limitations and blocks we are holding on to, and if we could become aware of them and adjust our thoughts and emotions accordingly we would effectively be removing those negative influences from our lives and begin projecting a different reality, one that we get to choose consciously.

 In very simple terms, Chakras are energy centres which connect our subtle energy bodies with each other and channel life energy to our physical being via the energy network called meridians.

Most people assume that chakras and auras are two different names of the same energy but that’s simply not true. They’re connected and can influence each other, but they’re not the same. There are seven chakras in our body and all of them have their own colors. The chakras have a fixed location and they don’t move. You can consider them gateways that control and direct spiritual energy.

Auras are different. While chakras are present inside your body, aura is present around it. It’s like a field around your body that emits energy outward instead of channeling it inward. Auras always have seven layers and emit different colors that reflect your personality, mood, and general health.

Aura is the energy that surrounds everything, living and non-living. Non-living things have a slight aura that is equal to the energy being emitted. A hot table will give off a stronger aura than a cold table; a wood table will put out a stronger aura than a glass table. With living creatures, there are seven layers to this egg-shaped energy.

Each aura layer is directly associated to a charka. The first layer, which is the closest to your body, is connected with the base or first chakra. Each additional layer will appear further from your body, completing the sphere with the seventh layer which is associated with the crown chakra. Most people who are “healthy” will have an aura that can extend beyond their bodies in all directions. When people are feeling depressed, sick or emotionally unhealthy, the aura has a tendency to stay fairly close to the body for extra protection.

Do Chakras and Auras Influence Each Other? 

Yes, they do. Your energy can’t really be fully contained. It will escape your body and influence your surroundings. While the energy within your body is controlled and directed by chakras, some of it does leak out and form an aura around us. If there’s a disturbance in the chakras, the leaked energy will corrupt your aura. If you’re surrounded by a corrupt aura, it will influence the chakras. This is a cycle that would keep going until you correct the imbalance and heal your aura.

Auras are a Reflection of Your Mood and Intent

Auras are energetic fields that emanate from the body in a rainbow of hues, and it is somewhat of a tattletale concerning your current state, mood, and way of being. Auras can change as quickly as chameleon depending on your current situation, and they can be adjusted consciously by practiced individuals. These luminous fields of energy surround every individual, a halo of colors that can only be detected by a master intuitive, often by using their Third Eye.

The auras serve as a mood ring of sorts and are affected by not only your state of mind, but that of those around you. If you work in a high stress office surrounded by Type A personalities, your aura may feel theirs pushing against yours if it is weakened; hence, why maintaining a strong aura is essential. An example of energy fields colliding is often seen when people are in love. Lovers’ auras brush against one another and combine into a great field of light when the two are together. Even as they depart, a bit of their partner’s aura clings to theirs.

You can often tell as an average human what type of aura someone has…those with strong auras are very charismatic, can draw a crowd, and have a strong presence. Think celebrities and politicians. Now think about that shy, anxious, withdrawn person who gets easily intimidated by those with thick, strong auras. These individuals have thin, weak auras.

The Chakras Tell the Story of Your Life

Chakras reflect the NOW in your life, and these energy centers are anchored within specific regions of the human body. Chakra means ‘spinning wheel’ in Sanskrit, and each of the chakras has a correlating color just as the auras do. These energy centers work together and ‘communicate’ with each other, so when one or more is blocked, the spinning or activation of the chakra is impaired. In turn, this can affect other chakras, causing slight imbalances that hamper emotional and physical wellbeing.

Emotional healing intuitives can often see the chakras, identify shrunken ones that are impaired, open ones that indicate blockages, and identify those with pinpricks of light which often indicate depression. Healing the chakras requires REAL life changes and effort, whereas auras can be changed on a dime. Clearing and balancing the chakras will in turn support your aura!

Why is a chakra important?

Each chakra tends to be primarily related to certain organs, glands, and life issues. Physical and emotional traumas create pain and therefore a negative energetic “charge” in the associated center or chakra. When this happens a block can be created in which fresh life force (chi, energy, light) is unable to flow freely through the chakra.

Our physical body rejuvenates and energizes itself with food, water, breathing, and receiving universal energy. The chakra is the unseen organ that exchanges energy for the body. Fresh energy is drawn into the body and it is this flow of energy that provides energetic nourishment to the organs and glands. Each chakra supports physical well-being by providing vitality to the physical body as well as psychological and emotional balance. If too much or too little energy is focused in a particular chakra, our ability to receive, experience and express the related concepts and emotions is impaired.

Energy Healing use a gentle touch to balance the energy to support a free flow of energy, which helps to create an energetic balance and eliminate the block. This method works with self-healing as well as for client work.

Chakra Characteristics:

OUT OF BALANCE OR NON-FUNCTIONAL: Energy flow in the chakra is sluggish or is not absorbed and released in a balanced manner. If a chakra is not balanced, or if the energies are blocked, the energy flowing into the body will be slowed down or not absorbed into the body. This means that the feelings and experiences associated with that chakra are being incorporated into one’s experience.  Not only are physical bodily functions affected, which may allow diseases to manifest, but the thought processes and the mind can also be affected. A negative attitude, fear, doubt, etc. may preoccupy the individual. Many people react to unpleasant experiences by blocking feelings and stopping a great deal of our natural energy flow. Whenever a person blocks whatever experience, the energetic balance in the chakra is also blocked. An energetic block can occur by long held negative states, rigid thought patterns, negative emotions, toxins etc., which if not released can lead to physical imbalances. The term “close” or “too open” is also used to describe a chakra that is not balanced.

BALANCED or FUNCTIONAL: Energy freely flows to and from the body through the chakra. Feelings and experiences associated with that chakra are well balanced and full in that person’s life. This ensures physical vitality by taking in energy & distributing it throughout the body. This balance or equilibrium supports groundedness, good health and a sense of well-being. 

A constant balance between the chakras promotes health and a sense of well-being. The term “open” is also used to describe this balance.

Where are chakras located?

There are seven major chakras and approximately 22 minor chakras. The major Chakra System begins at the base of the spine and finishes at the top of the head. They are fixed in the central spinal column. Five of the chakras are located on both the front and back of the body, and work through it.

Chakras in the hands and feet

Note: the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet are considered minor or intermediate chakras. The chakra’s in the palms of the hands is where the energy is transferred from practitioner to client (including working on oneself).

The chakras in the soles of the feet are significant in grounding.

Hurtful situations that affect our emotional being are wounding to the heart chakra. Physical illnesses brought about by heartbreak require that an emotional healing occur along with the physical healing. Almost everyone today has a hard, hurt, or broken heart, and it is no accident that heart disease is the one of the most prevalent diseases in America today.

All choices we make in our lives have consequences on an energetic level. Even choosing not to make a choice such as in repressing our anger (not speaking out) may manifest issues for the throat such as laryngitis. We have all experienced that “lump in our throats” when we are at a crossroad of not knowing how to speak the right words in any given situation, perhaps even stuffing our own emotions.

Chakras & Endocrine Glands | Meridians|

Why should we care about the endocrine system? We all know someone with diabetes, breast cancer, prostate cancer, hypothyroidism or chronic fatigue syndrome. These disorders are all directly affected by improper activity, or inactivity, of the endocrine system. Hence we all should wonder what is happening with our necessary and important endocrine glands.

The endocrine system consists of ductless, glandular organs that secrete hormones and enzymes necessary for digestion, hormone production and regulation,  immunity, metabolism, fat utilization, glucose uptake into energy conversion and sleep/wake cycles. The endocrine system is so crucial because it connects to the invisible yet very present spiritual chakras and meridian lines in the body. The organs present within this system include the pituitary, the pineal, the thymus, the pancreas, the adrenal glands, and the testes or ovaries.  The toxins and chemicals in today’s water, food and air are directly attacking our endocrine systems. It is imperative that the collective understand how this system works and the importance of proper function. Only then will you understand the gravity of avoiding processed food, fluoride-laden water, heavy metals, xenoestrogens, plasticizers, pesticides and lab synthesized pharmaceuticals.

Whats the importance of the glandular organs? The pituitary is involved in a very complex biofeedback loop that involves the hypothalamus in your brain and numerous other target organs. It helps to regulate release of hormones that tell your thyroid, ovaries/testes or adrenal what to secrete and when.  Under stress the adrenals are told to release cortisol, the thyroid is told when to produce more or less thyroid hormone based on metabolism, and the ovaries in females, release hormones in relation to monthly cycles or menopause. In a male, the body makes and eventually releases testosterone after numerous androgen building block steps. It even secretes hormones telling our bodies when to grow and mature. All of this is due to communication from the pituitary! The pancreas and digestive tree are the main detoxifiers. Once they back up and malfunction, our other glands become toxic as well as all is connected. Then we are at risk for heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders or autoimmune diseases due to toxin and chemical overload which deregulates the processes built into our DNA.

The fillers for extended shelf life, heavy metals in vaccines and EMF and cell phone towers all aid in changing our DNA.  Fluoride partially blocks our spiritual antenna. The endocrine system is the victim. As it plays a crucial role in directing and controlling chemical messages that affect protein and enzyme production. These toxins are affecting our message system, stagnating our immunity, metabolism, spiritual connectedness and reproduction. Surprisingly, that’s not all.

There is a specific reason that the endocrine system is especially special. Each gland is connected to one of the seven chakras. Chakras are spinning energy vortexes connected to the spiritual, not physical body.  They tie us to our higher self and to God/source/intuition. Physically harming the body can also harm the chakras that are attached to them because the chakras are an energy system that communicates with the physical body. Everything is energy! Disturbances in the subtle energy of the chakras translate into physical manifestation and symptoms. Depending on our genetic and emotional predispositions, the combination of chakra and/or physical toxin overload eventually produces disease in an organ that is susceptible, based simply on our unique personal risk factors.

A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE CHAKRAS

Chakra systemThe word chakra literally means wheel, circle, vortex, or whirlpool. The chakras are connected to a network of psychic channels called nadis, which correspond to the nerves but are more subtle in nature. The major chakras are seven in number and are located along the pathway of sushumna nadi which flows through the centre of the spinal cord. Sushumna nadi originates at the perineum and terminates at the top of the head.
The chakras are depicted symbolically as lotus flowers, each having a particular number of petals and a characteristic colour. The lotus symbolizes the three stages- ignorance, aspiration and illumination. It represents spiritual growth from the lowest state of awareness to the highest state of’ consciousness. The petals of the lotus, inscribed with the beeja mantras or seed sounds of the Sanskrit alphabet, represent the different manifestations of psychic energy connected with the chakras and the nadis leading into and out of them. Within each chakra is a yantra comprised of the geometrical symbol of its associated element and beeja mantra. Within the yantra there is also a presiding deity, which represents particular aspects of divinity, along with the corresponding vahana or vehicle which is an animal form, representing other psychic aspects related with the particular centre.

CHAKRAS ASSOCIATION WITH THE PHYSICAL BODY

On a physical level, chakras are associated with the major nerve plexuses and endocrine glands in the body. Endocrine system is a system of glands which secrete hormones directly into the blood stream rather than through a duct to regulate activity in other parts of the body. It is instrumental in regulating metabolism, growth, development, puberty, tissue function and also plays a part in determining mood. The names of the glands & the chakras are muladhara (adrenal glands), swadhasthana (gondas/ovaries), manipura (spleen/pancreas), anahata (thymus), vishudha (thyroid/parathyroid), ajna (pituitary gland), sahasrara (pineal gland). The ideal condition of chakras is that they all be open and active, and neither underactive (closed) or overactive. If your chakras are closed you need to open the chakras so as to make them active, you should feel more balanced, happy and at peace.

Endocrine Glands

The seven major chakras, although undetectable anatomically, are metaphysically linked with a number of different systems within the physical body. We will explore how the chakras bridge the visible, physical, self – in the form of the spinal cord, the autonomic nervous system, and the endocrine system with our ”subtle” body, that envelope o vibrational energy called the “aura”.

Endocrine GlandsWhile orthodox medicine describes our physical system in terms of chemistry, what is now understood in that for any chemical action to take place a change in the electromagnetic energy of the body must occur. This energy emanates from the “mind” and explains the importance of the mind-body link to our physical, emotional, and mental health. The old scientific paradigm of relating to health purely in terms of the visible is now being superseded by an appreciation of “truths” once embraced only by mystics: that thoughts and the mind precede and affect physical matter. After all, what is thought but a form of energy?

The endocrine system is one of the body’s main physical control mechanishms. It comprises a number of ductless glands that are responsible for the production of many different natural chemicals called hormones. These chemical messengers, which include adrenalin insulin, oestrogen, and progesterone, are secreted into the bloodstream from specific organs in the body to stimulate or inhibit certain physical processes. The endocrine system, along with the autonomic nervous system, helps maintain the parameters needed for optimum health by adjusting levels of hormone secretion to suit special demands. In the same way that an imbalance in one chakra affects the others the nervous and endocrine systems are functionally interconnected and any disturbance in one part can lead to a malfunction elsewhere. In order to gain a better understanding of how the endocrine system links wit the chakras, let us look at each pair in turn:

Adrenals – Root (1st) Chakra
The adrenals are triangular=shaped glands that cap each of the kidneys. They secrete a variety of hormones including those that regulate the body’s metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates and ones that control the balance of salt in our bodily fluids. These glands also reduce adrenalin, the hormone essential for our primitive “fight or flight” response, from which we can determine the link between this gland and the Root Chakra’s association with the issues of physical survival.

Ovaries/testes – Sacral (2nd) Chakra
The male and female reproductive organs, or gonads, produce hormones that are responsible for the development of secondary sexual characteristics, such as the depth of voice and amount of body hair. The testes and ovaries control an individual’s sexual development and maturity as well as the production of sperm in males and eggs in females. Our relationship with our own sexuality, and issues of emotional balance concerning that, is a key association of this chakra.

Pancreas – Solar Plexus (3rd) Chakra
The pancreas lies behind the stomach and secretes a variety of substances essential for the effective digestion of food It also produces insulin, which helps control the blood’s sugar level. One of the physical dysfunctions of this chakra is diabetes, a disease caused by excess sugar in the bloodstream. There is a further link with the Solar Plexus and adrenalin, which is why we experience “butterflies in the stomach” during frightening experiences. The associated body parts of the Solar Plexus include the digestive system and a further dysfunction of this chakra is stomach ulcers.

Thymus – Heart (4th) Chakra
Located just above the heart, the thymus produces hormones that stimulate general growth particularly early in lif. It also has a purifying role in the body by stimulating the production of lymphocytes, which form part of the blood’s white cells’ defense system, attacking invading organisms and providing immunity. Scientists now recognize that auto-immune diseases, where the immune system attacks its own proteins, mistaking them for a foreign substance, have an emotional link and are not simply due to physical or environmental causes.

Thyroid/Parathyroid – Throat (5th) Chakra
The thyroid gland, situated on either side of the larynx and trachea in the neck, manufactures thyroxine, which controls the body’s metabolic rate – that is, how effectively it converts food into energy. Behind this lies the parathyroid gland which controls the level of calcium in the bloodstream. In addition to physical growth, these glands are also believed to affect one’s mental development. The Throat Chakra, linked with all forms of communication, corresponds to the need to balance between the rational, cerebral, approach and the emotional expression of the heart.

Pituitary – Third Eye (6th) Chakra
The pituitary glands located within a structure at the base of the skull, close ot the eyebrows. Once called the “master gland” of the endocrine system, it has since been found to be controlled by hormonal substances released by the hypothalamus, a part of the brain This vital gland influences growth, metabolism, and general body chemistry. This includes the hormone which produces contractions during labor and releases milk from the breasts during lactation. It is interesting to note this Third Eye= pituitary gland connection with birth and motherhood, a time when namely women feel that their intuition, particularly with regard to their child, is at its peak.

Pineal – Crown (7th) Chakra
The glandular connection of the Crown chakra is the pineal gland, a pea-sized body that lies deep within the brain and was once thought to serve no useful purpose. Considered in the seventeenth century to be the seat of the soul by French philosopher, Rene Descartes, recent scientific research has linked this gland with the production of melatonin and regulates our internal “body clock”. Melatonin is also the subject of intense scientific interest for its possible anti-ageing properties and is believed to affect the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, and gonads – although no one yet understands how or why. Like the Crown’s function within the chakra system as a whole, the pineal gland is the control center for the effective functioning of our physical, emotional, and mental selves.

Kundalini Rising

In the same way that our physical body’s central nervous system consists of the spinal cord leading to the brain the energetic equivalent is the sushumna, vertical column within which the seven chakras are located. The parallels between these physical and metaphysical structures are striking. Whereas the function of the spinal cord is to relay impulses to and from the brain and other parts of the body, the sushumna channels energy from the Universal Life Force to and from the Crown and Root Chakras. Each chakra is rooted into the sushumna by both a front and a rear aspect. In their traditional depictions as lotus flowers, the petals of each chakra emerge from the sushumna at the front of the body, while the stems open out from the back. The stems normally remain closed and have a negative polarity, whereas the petals consecutively vibrate, rotate in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction, as well as open and close. They have a positive polarity.

The journey upward through the chakras is spoken of in terms of “Kundalini rising”. Kundalini is the serpent goddess often depicted as coiled three and a half times around the Root Chakra. According to Hindu tradition, when awakened Kundalini pierces each chakra in turn as she travels toward the crown. Once she has arrived at her destination the subject is said to have achieved enlightenment. There are many links between Kundalini and religious and cultural archetypes. In Genesis it is a serpent that leads Adam and Eve to taste from the Tree of Knowledge, hereby instigating the inner conflict between material needs and the spiritual desire to achieve higher states of consciousness.. And in Egypt, the pharaohs wore serpent symbols over the Third Eye Chakra to represent godlike stature. It is the appreciation of our Higher Self = finding the God within = that is the ultimate goal of this journey through the chakras..
