The word chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel".If we were able to see the chakras (as many
psychics, in fact, do) we would observe a wheel of energy continuously revolving or rotating. Clairvoyants perceive
chakras as colorful wheels or flowers with a hub in the center. The Chakras begin at the base of the spine and finish
at the top of the head. Though fixed in the central spinal column they are located on both the front and back of the
body, and work through it.
Each chakra vibrates or rotates at a different speed. The root or first chakra rotates at the slowest speed, the
crown or seventh chakra at the highest speed. Each chakra is stimulated by its own and complimentary color, and
a range of gemstones for specific uses. The chakra colors are of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue,
indigo, and violet. The size and brightness of the wheels vary with individual development, physical condition,
energy levels, disease, or stress.
If the chakras are not balanced, or if the energies are blocked, the basic life force will be slowed down. The
individual may feel tired, out of sorts, or depressed. Not only will physical bodily functions be affected so diseases
may manifest, but the thought processes and the mind may also be affected. A negative attitude, fear, doubt, etc.
may preoccupy the individual.
A constant balance between the chakras promotes health and a sense of well being. If the chakras are opened
to much, a person could literally short circuit themselves with too much universal energy going through the body. If
the chakras are closed, this does not allow for the universal energy to flow through them properly which may also
lead to dis-ease.
Most of us react to unpleasant experiences by blocking our feeling and stopping a great deal of our natural
energy flow. This affects the maturation and development of the chakras. Whenever a person blocks whatever
experience he is having, he in turn blocks his chakras, which eventually become disfigured. When the chakras are
functioning normally, each will be open, spinning clockwise to metabolize the particular energies needed from the
universal energy field.
As already mentioned, any imbalances that exist within any chakra may have profound effects upon either our
physical or emotional bodies. We are able to use our quartz crystals and gemstones to re-balance all our chakric
centers and once the chakra has been properly balanced then our body will gradually return to normal.
The reason why crystals and gemstones are wonderful and powerful healing tools are because of what science
calls its piezoelectric effect. (You can see this effect in the modern quartz watches). Crystals and gemstones
respond to the electricity that is coursing through our body, and if the energy is sluggish, the constant electrical
vibrations of the stones will help to harmonize, balance, and stimulate these energies.
THE SEVEN MAJOR CHAKRA
First Chakra - Root
Studying the individual chakras begins with the root chakra, called Muladhara in Sanskrit. The root chakra is
located at the base of the spine at the tailbone in back, and the pubic bone in front. This center holds the basic
needs for survival, security and safety. The root chakra is powerfully related to our contact with the Earth Mother,
providing us with the ability to be grounded into the earth plane. This is also the center of manifestation. When you
are trying to make things happen in the material world, business or possessions, the energy to succeed will come
from the first chakra. If this chakra is blocked an individual may feel fearful, anxious, insecure and frustrated.Problems like obesity, anorexia nervosa, and knee troubles can occur. Root body parts include the hips, legs, lower back and
NOTE: A man’s sexual organs are located primarily in his first chakra, so male sexual energy is usually experienced primarily as physical. A women's sexual organs are primarily in her second chakra, so female sexual energy is usually experienced primarily as emotional. Both chakras are associated with sexual energy.
Second Chakra - Belly (Sacral)
The next chakra or second chakra is often referred to as the belly or (sacral). It is located two inches below the navel and is rooted into the spine. This center holds the basic needs for sexuality, creativity, intuition, and self-worth. This chakra is also about friendliness, creativity, and emotions. It governs peoples sense of self-worth, their confidence in their own creativity, and their ability to relate to others in an open and friendly way. It’s influenced by how emotions were expressed or repressed in the family during childhood. Proper bal ance in this chakra means the ability to flow with emotions freely and to feel and reach out to others sexually or not. If this chakra is blocked a person may feel emotionally explosive, manipulative, obsessed with thoughts of sex or may lack energy. Physical problems may include, kidney weakness, stiff lower back, constipation, and muscle spasms Belly body parts include sexual organs (women), kidneys,bladder, and large intestine.
Third Chakra - Solar Plexus
The third chakra is referred to as the Solar Plexus. It is located two inches below the breastbone in the center behind the stomach. The third chakra is the center of personal power, the place of ego, of passions, impulses, anger and strength. It is also the center for astral travel and astral influences, receptivity of spirit guides and for psychic development. When the Third Chakra is out of balance you may lack confidence, be confused, worry about what others think, feel that others are controlling your life, and may be depressed. Physical problems may include digestive difficulties, liver problems, diabetes, nervous exhaustion, and food allergies. When balanced you may feel cheerful, outgoing, have self-respect, expressive, enjoy taking on new challenges, and have a strong sense of personal power. The body parts for this chakra include the stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, and small intestine.
Fourth Chakra - Heart
The fourth chakra is referred to as the heart chakra.It is located behind the breast bone in front and on the
spine between the shoulder blades in back. This is the center for love, compassion and spirituality. This center
directs one's ability to love themselves and others, to give and to receive love. This is also the chakra connecting
body and mind with spirit. Almost everyone today has a hard, hurt, or broken heart, and it is no accident that heart
disease is the number one killer in America today. Deep heart hurts can result in aura obstructions called heart
scars. When these scars are released, they raise a lot of old pain, but free the heart for healing and new growth.
When this chakra is out of balance you may feel sorry for yourself, paranoid, indecisive, afraid of letting go, afraid
of getting hurt, or unworthy of love. Physical illnesses include heart attack, high blood pressure, insomnia, and
difficult in breathing. When this chakra is balanced you may feel compassionate, friendly, empathetic, desire to
nurture others and see the good in everyone. Body parts for the fourth chakra include heart, lungs, circulatory
system, shoulders, and upper back.
Fifth Chakra - Throat
The fifth chakra is referred to as the Throat. It is located in the V of the collarbone at the lower neck and is the
center of communication, sound, and expression of creativity via thought , speech, and writing. The possibility for
change, transformation and healing are located here. The throat is where anger is stored and finally let go of. When
this chakra is out of balance you may want to hold back, feel timid, be quiet, feel weak, or can’t express your
thoughts. Physical illnesses or ailments include, hyperthyroid, skin irritations, ear infections, sore throat,
inflammations, and back pain. When this chakra is balanced you may feel balanced, centered, musically or
artistically inspired, and may be a good speaker. Body parts for the fifth chakra are throat, neck, teeth, ears, &
Sixth Chakra - Third Eye
The sixth chakra is referred to as the Third Eye. It is located above the physical eyes on the center of the
forehead. This is the center for psychicability, higher intuition, the energies of spirit and light. It also assists in the
purification of negative tendencies and in the elimination of selfish attitudes. Through the power of the sixth chakra,
you can receive guidance, channel, and tune into your Higher Self. When this chakra is not balanced you may feel
non-assertive, afraid of success, or go the opposite way and be egotistical. Physical symptoms may include
headaches, blurred vision, blindness, and eyestrain. When this chakra is balanced and open you are your own
master with no fear of death, are not attached to material things, may experience telepathy, astral travel, and past
lives. Sixth chakra body parts include the eyes, face, brain, lymphatic and endocrine system.
Seventh Chakra - Crown
The seventh chakra is referred to as the Crown. It is located just behind the top of the skull. It is the center of
spirituality, enlightenment, dynamic thought and energy. It allows for the inward flow of wisdom, and brings the gift
of cosmic consciousness. This is also the center of connectedness with the Goddess (God), the place where life
animates the physical body. The silver cord that connects the aura bodies extends from the crown. The soul comes
into the body through the crown at birth and leaves from the crown at death. When this chakra is unbalanced there
may be a constant sense of frustration, no spark of joy, and destructive feelings. Illnesses may include migraine
headaches and depression. Balanced energy in this chakra may include the ability to open up to the Divine and total
access to the unconscious and subconscious.
Activation of the Energy Centers by Healing Software
The three lower chakras co-relate to basic primary needs- those of survival, procreation and will. The four
higher chakras relate to our psychological makeup. They define love, communication and knowledge and can also
provide a spiritual connection to this universe and beyond. Seven chakras in our body play a vital role in our total
well being. Our chakras get disturbed due to stress and negative emotions, creating disease and disharmony, which
prevent us from functioning at our most vibrant and joyful level.
The healing software/ basic human values with related positive emotions are connected with each chakra
in order to activate and energize each of the chakras. The details of Chakras and related values/ software
are as follows:
1. Power activates Muladhara (Root) Chakra:
The root chakra not only sends energy to bones and muscles of the body but also acts as a sex center. It is the
source of creative energy and power. We are both male and female in our energies, but society does not let us
Most societies repress the feminine energy: the left side of the body and the right side of the brain, which is the
abode of beauty, stillness, poetry and art. Until the age of seven, your energy is total. Notice how children are
beautiful in their beings. But beyond seven, children are forced to suppress their other side and thus wound their
consciousness. In their search for the other half, girls adore their father and boys their mother.
Between the age of 7 and 14, the wound can be healed if parents remain most of the time with their children,
but if the parents are not there, children look in vain in the outside world for that feminine and masculine energy.
Children in the 14-21 age groups are ready to engage with the opposite sex- to marry- but they are rarely
allowed. So they collect and cherish imagination and dreams of the opposite sex through the media. Manufacturers
exploit this by selling dreams and sex appeal through their products. And these play a vital role in deforming and
disabling the astral and the mental body of youths, which further causes several diseases in the physical body at a
youthful age of their life. This all leads to further degeneration of their character and conduct.
The root chakra is a continuous fountain of positive energy power, while our imaginations and expectations are
like a huge stone blocking this marvelous energy fountain. When we burnaway all our unwanted imaginations and
memories and open ourselves to reality, the creative energy of this chakra flows.
2. Purity activates Swadhisthana (Spleen) Chakra:
This chakra is located two inches below the navel and is the place where fear attacks us. The average person
has six to 12 fear strokes every 24 hours, while in awaken and sleeping time. This weakens our immune system and
leads to depression, illness, aging, infertility, and impotency. It also creates diseases of the kidney.
Fear primarily falls into four categories:
- Fear of loss of status, wealth or comfort.
- Fear of disease or loss of a bodily part.
- Fear of loss of family or friends.
- Fear of death
Purity leads to fearlessness. It is not the absence of fear but it is the courage to face the fear and experience it
completely. If we can truly enter into the space of fear and experience it with power of purity, it can never affect us
again and will activate Swadhisthan/ Hara Chakra.
3. Happiness activates Manipura (Navel) Chakra:
Worry and suppressed emotions sit in the navel center and block this chakra. “Worrying is nothing but a
constant repetition of certain words in the mind”. This drains away our energy and takes us out of the total
awareness and bliss of this moment. Worry is a terrible wastage of time, thought and energy. 99% of our worries
never come true and the one percent that do, end up being good for us. Many stomach problems; skin diseases and
pains are related to the navel center. Obesity is another byproduct of worry and depression. Happiness and
contentment activate this chakra.
4. Selfless love activates Anahata (Heart) Chakra:
Unconditional expression of love and affection expands this chakra. Constant need for other's attention and
approval blocks it. “Life is a long signature campaign.” We are constantly working for social success, rather than
individual success. Make a list of all those people who have the power to upset us and realise that we are
psychological slaves to these people. The conscious realisation itself will bring about a freedom.
We never know the people who are close to us. We simply form an image of them and continue to relate to that
image through out, while the person is in an ever-changing multifaceted centre of consciousness.
5. Peace activates Visuddhi (Throat) Chakra:
“Three layers of energy merge in the throat chakra; ordinary physical energy, reserve energy to be used in
emergencies and spiritual energy.” We usually use only the first level and forget that there are two more levels
behind it; in order to access these levels we need to get rid of our ego, which results in either a superiority or
inferiority complex. Comparison and jealousy lock this chakra. When we run in the rat race, the visuddhi closes.
Understanding the value of peace and appreciating our uniqueness open it.
We usually create an idea about ourself and compare it to others, which is senseless. If we live our life, we will
grow uniquely and will have profound satisfaction, whether we have money, fame or not etc. When we feel tired in
our body, we can say “no” and go to the next layer of energy, which will provide us with all the energy, and vitality
that we need.
6. Truth and knowledge activates Ajna (Brow) Chakra:
“Ajna”(AGYA) means will power. We usually spend 80 % of our energy what we desire and 20% of our
energy what we want to create. These percentages get reversed when this chakra is opened; resulting in fewer
desires but more power to create them into reality. Conditioning, labelling and judgements contaminate this chakra.
All judgements are prejudiced; they draw conclusions from a few observations (observations are contaminated by
our conditioning). “I am this, you are that, life is this, etc.” are statements of the ego.This mental chatter reduces all
our experiences merely to words.
To live spontaneously and intensely we need to deal with every person and situation without a script. If we trust
our being we will have an enormous leap of growth through such spontaneous interaction with the world. Facing life
without a script, we will realise that we know much more than we imagine. Whether we believe it or not, like it or
not, the fact is that we are God's children and we are same as our father is. This is the truth of life. True knowledge
and wisdom enlighten us to open brow chakra.
7. Bliss activates Sahastrara (Crown) Chakra:
“Sahastrara” means the thousand petals lotus. When this chakra opens, we are flooded with ecstasy and eternal
bliss.Discontentment and negativity towards life block this chakra.
Gratitude for life and all that God has given us opens this chakra. So many blessings are showered upon us and
we take them for granted. Our life and body are amazing gifts from God- absolutely incredible. Living out of deep
joy and bliss is the product of simply showing gratitude and respect for the divine. Loving the whole world is easy;
loving our neighbour is difficult because it requires actions through acts of gratitude, compassion and affection. Feel
gratitude for every small thing in life.
“Gratitude is the greatest attitude which determines our altitude of success in life.”
