The 7 Chakras - Your Energy Centers

 

Creating total balance means more than finding an equilibrium in all areas of your life.  

Have you ever asked yourself, "What are Chakras"?

Chakras... meaning "wheel, circle", sometimes spelled C̣akra, Cakra or Cakka, is any center of subtle body believed to be psychic-energy centres in the esoteric traditions of Indian religions.

In essence, the seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows.

Blocked energy in any of our seven chakras often leads to illness.
So it's crucial to understand what each chakra represents.

We need to learn in order to ensure that energy keeps flowing freely.

And so, to get your life in balance, you need to calibrate all seven chakras. 

 

 MULADHARA - Root

Muladhara - Root ChakraThe First Chakra is situated below the sacrum bone in which resides the KUNDALINI, and its main aspect is the innocence. Innocence is the quality by which we experience pure, childlike joy, without the limitations of prejudice or conditionings. Innocence gives us dignity, balance and a tremendous sense of direction and purpose in life. It is nothing but simplicity, purity and joy.
It is the inner wisdom that is ever present in the little children, and gets sometimes clouded by our modern lifestyles. But it is a quality which exists eternally within us and cannot be destroyed, waiting to be manifested as pure joy when the Kundalini rises.

Before using the fragrant oil, a simple blessing/prayer should be spoken for the desired effect in order to increase the effect and chances of success.

SVADHISTHANA - Sacral

Svadhistanna - Sacral Chakra
This is the Chakra of creativity, pure attention and pure knowledge. It is the one which connects us to the inner source of inspiration, and enables us to experience the beauty around us. The pure knowledge given by this Chakra is not mental, rather it is direct perception of the reality that can be felt in our palms and indicates our subtle blockages. Also this is the center of pure, steady attention and power of concentration. On the physical level it looks after our liver, kidneys, and the lower abdomen. When we think too much, this centre gets drained of energy and diseases like diabetes or blood cancer can occur when this Chakra goes completely out of balance. Before using the fragrant oil, a simple blessing/prayer should be spoken for the desired effect in order to increase the effect and chances of success.

MANIPURA - Solar Plexus

Manipura - Solar Plexus ChakraManipura, which is also known as NABHI, the 3rd Chakra is the one that gives us the sense of generosity, complete satisfaction and contentment. On the left side, the main quality of this center is peace – clearing this Chakra can relieve stress and tensions. On the right side, it looks after our liver which is the organ of our attention and power of concentration. When enlightened by the Kundalini, this Chakra gives us our spiritual ascent, righteousness and inner sense of morality and complete balance at all leveIs in our life. Surrounding the second and the third Chakra is the void which stands for the principle of mastery (GURU/SISYA i.e. Master/Student relationship) within us. In many spirituaI traditions, this area is the “OCEAN OF ILLUSIONS” that needs to be crossed with the help of a Spiritual Master. When the Kundalini is awakened and passes through the void, this principle of mastery is established within us. In this stage of realization only you can become your own guru, your own spiritual guide since you can feel on your fingertips all your subtle problems and have the power to cure them using your own Kundalini. Moreover, establishing this center helps you get rid of aII your habits, laziness, gross attachments, and everything that enslaves you in a way or another; you become your own master.

ANAHATA - Heart

Anahata - Heart Chakra
The 4th Chakra is located in the Heart Center where resides our SOUL (ATMA), with SUPER SOUL also known as PARAMATMA, Our Soul is eternally pure and unaffected by anything material like a shining diamond hidden within us. Our True Self witnesses all our actions in the presence of PARAMATMA. It is like two birds sitting on a tree. While one (Soul) is eating fruit of one’s action and the other (Super Soul or PARAMATMA) is witnessing the action within each and every one of us. Upon attaining self realization, our attention becomes for the first time connected to our Spirit and we gradually become aware of it. Our misidentifications with our false EGO or conditionings drop and we start becoming identified with our true self which is our true nature. On the physical level, this Chakra looks after our heart and lungs - if affected it can cause asthma or various heart conditions. It is from our heart that the compassion and love manifests, also comes sense of responsibility and pure behaviour towards other. Our worries, doubts and fears are destroyed when this Chakra is fully awakened by the Kundalini.
