The Chakra System and Energy Healing

In our previous issue, Sinduja's post ("My Experiments With Yoga - How Yoga Changed My Life?") touched briefly on the subject of Chakras. In this issue, therefore, I decided to share this interactive widget I found on the net, on the human Chakras.

For those of you who don't know what Chakras are, it provides a good briefer about these energy centers in our bodies. At the same time, it also serves as a quick refresher or a ready-reckoner for those of you who already know about them.

In simple words, Chakras are energy vortices, and each Chakra is supposed to resonate at an ideal frequency for optimum health. An over-active Chakra would be one spinning at a higher than ideal speed, and a blocked Chakra would be one spinning too slow. Both the situations lead to dis-ease in the body - physical, mental or emotional.

In Indian scriptures, Chakras are visualized symbolically:

  • 4-petalled Red lotus for the Root (Mooladhara) Chakra
  • 6-petalled Orange lotus for the Sacral (Swadhisthan) Chakra
  • 10-petalled Yellow lotus for the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra
  • 12-petalled Green lotus for the Heart (Anahata) Chakra
  • 16-petalled Blue lotus for the Throat (Vishuddhi) Chakra
  • 2-petalled Indigo lotus for the Third Eye (Ajneya) Chakra
  • Thousand-petalled Violet lotus for the Crown (Sahasrara) Chakra

Makes it V-I-B-G-Y-O-R, in reverse... all the colors of the rainbow!

Each of these seven major Chakras corresponds to specific organs and glands in our body. And abnormal functioning of any Chakra leads to a dis-ease in the corresponding section of our physical body. For example, the Sacral Chakra is associated with the human reproductive system.

Similarly, each of these Chakras also relates to specific mental and emotional patterns. For example, suicidal temperament is primarily marked by a weak/under-active Root Chakra. And a Teacher/Professor would have a healthy Throat Chakra.

In short, all aspects of our life can be summed up in Chakras. Health, finances, personal relationships -- they're all dependent on the state of our Chakras. Yoga, Reiki, TaiChi, QiGong, Meditation and Pranayam are just a few of the many different ways in which we can keep our Chakras vibrant and balanced, in order to live a more fulfilling life.
