What are Chakras?

A series of subtle, fine energies are in the ether right outside of our physical bodies, and they are called chakras. Psychics believe that people get most of their energies, such as physical, emotional, and mental, from invisible rays which come down into our bodies through very tiny openings in the top of our heads.

These rays may be a single color, or several colors. The color and its quantity and position will affect the talents, vitality, disposition, personality, character, and behavior patterns of the individual. Once these energies come into the head, they are filtered and reflected downward through seven etheric energy centers or energy wheels, called chakras.

These centers are located just in front of the spinal column, in the ether, which is just a thin substance through which electromagnetic waves can travel.

Kundalini and Chi Energy are the Same Thing

The crown chakra at the top of the head can be found at the intersection of two lines, one coming down the head from the fontanel at the upper back of the head (the soft spot on a newborn baby’s head) the other through the middle of the forehead.

The brow center, or third eye, is found at the first cervical vertebra, or between your two eyes. The throat chakra is at the third cervical and the heart center at the first thoracic. The solar plexus is at the eighth thoracic, the spleen center at the first lumbar, and the sacrum, or base chakra, just above the coccyx. As this subtle energy comes into the head, it moves downward an extremely fine invisible stem located in the center of the spinal cord.

As the energy moves downward through each center, it becomes more dense, so that when it reaches the chakra at the base of the spine, it is quite heavy, and has a very low and slow frequency. Here it mixes with a dense, dormant earth energy known in yoga as kundalini energy, or serpent power. The kundalini energies are often described as a snake since they sort of “crawl” downward to their bases in your body. They are also known as your “chi” energies.

Meditation Information to Clear Your Chakras

Try to Direct Chi Energy up Towards the Crown Chakra

Both Eastern and Western cultures believe it is the responsibility of the individual consciousness to try to raise, mix and balance these energy forces and direct them upward. This is done through different meditation techniques, where a person quiets their mind to outside distractions and tries to get in touch with their inner selves. Any type of meditation a person begins is very serious, and must be practiced for quite some time before they will make any progress, so I will not discuss that much here.

Suffice it to say that a beginner in meditation will enjoy better relaxation, clearer mental processes, and be able to concentrate and focus better, thus improving their health in both physical and mental ways. As the kundalini energies begin to climb upward, they are blended and transmuted, creating many types of experiences that cause profound changes in a person’s awareness. The main goal is to open and balance each of these energy centers fully in a harmonious flow through the whole mind, body and spirit system of the person.

The Seven Chakra Centers Should Not be Blocked

These seven centers have a significant effect on the endocrine glands, and if the flow through these energy wheels is blocked or disrupted by too little or too much activity, the corresponding endocrine center of the particular chakra area will be affected. These glands affect the nervous system, and are what controls, balances, and self regulates the unified mind and body. Even a slight imbalance in these areas can cause fluctuations of powerful hormone secretions that enter the blood stream and create changes of mood, appearance, relaxation, respiration, digestion, initiative and intelligence.

This energy is also called chi, as in T’ai chi and the ki force used in karate and akido, as well as it’s manipulation is the basic principle of acupuncture. Chiropractic treatment also works from a similar premise, which believes any misalignment in the spine causes illness, (not to mention back pain) and manual manipulation of specific pressure points will help a person get well. The acupuncture can be thought of as small streams flowing from seven rivers of light. If these centers are blocked or out of harmony, the person becomes weak and ill. In Chinese and Occult medicine, all physical, emotional, and psychological illness is because of an imbalance of this vital energy flow. Once the natural balance is restored, the person is again well, healthy, harmonious and whole.
