Chakras are part of our energy system, also including the nadis and meridians. Their balance depends on the harmony of our energy system and the flow of data to power the various parts of our body.

What is a chakra? 

The word “chakra” means “wheel” in Sanskrit, refers to energy centers, or energy sensors for powering our subtle energy system; they look like whirlwinds or funnels, energy vortex. They may also be called: Life Force Centre, Centre of consciousness, nerve plexus  …

The chakras serve as a bridge between the outside and the various bodies (physical and subtle) of the human being, considered in its entirety. The “gateway” word seems to define their role, as they are both energy sensors and transmitters.

Where are the chakras?

The chakras are located at the “crossroads” of several Nadis and are present in each of our subtle bodies. chakras

Chakras and Nadis crossings:

21 Nadis: 7 main chakras located along the spine

14 Nadis: secondary chakras

7 Nadis: tertiary chakras located along the route of the meridians (acupuncture points)

The main chakras
– capture
– forward
– emit

These are energy crossroads where energy routes intersect (Nadis) chakras

The secondary chakras

The secondary chakras are very numerous, I would mention here that twelve major side chakras:

– Middle of the palms,
– Bend the elbows, – clavicular hollow,
– 2nd intercostal (pain points)
– Popliteal fossa (bend knees)
– Middle of the arch.

The tertiary chakras

The tertiary chakras gathered in the path of the meridians and acupuncture points are. Each gathering tertiary chakras corresponding to an organ’s meridian, depending on how the energy centers. Each meridian (group of energetic centers or tertiary chakras) has a function. chakras

In some ancient texts, it is said that the human body consists of more than 80,000 chakras. Chakras are in rotation, which allows the energy to be absorbed inwardly. The rotation is either to the right-handed (Yang) or to the left and Back (Yin), according to the proportion of Yin and Yang that drives us at the time considered not as is a popular belief, that following we are man or woman … it’s possible with reading auras, etheric palpation or measurement pendulum, to see if a chakra runs well if it has the tone.

Role of chakras

The chakras are used to absorb the vital energy that surrounds us. The received energy is then metabolized through each chakra then sent body parts depending on the closest major nervous system. This energy is essential to the functioning of the subtle body and the physical body. Eastern tradition gives him the name of prana or chi. If a chakra stops working well, the energy absorption suffers, and dependent organs will weaken. chakras

The role of the chakras is essential in this balance, spreading some of that light / vital energy to the glands and organs they fly. If they are dysfunctional (closed, turning in opposite directions, damaged …), energy circulates less in the Nadis, or not at all … they become porous, deficient, and their members being attached enter a process dysfunction due to their progressive inactivity, which induces the so called “disease”. Therefore if there is a malfunction, it should restore the energy balance of the whole energy system.

Chakra energy balancing

The energy balance is to recirculate Energy harmoniously throughout the system. For this, it must balance the chakras, cleanse and energize the nadis and meridians, if necessary.

This rebalancing the energy system will allow the energy to start to flow smoothly into the subtle body and the physical body. By relying to circulate Energy will dissolve blockages at the source of many organic, physiological and psychological problems present or old and thus prevent the risk of malfunctions, sources of diseases.

Energy balancing helps to relieve stress, repressed emotions, many dysfunctions responsible and regulates at a subtle level endocrine glands. chakras

Chakras and endocrine glands vibrate and work in harmony.

Any abnormality in the functioning of a chakra leads to under-activation or overactivation in the next chakra, followed by lighter disturbances in other chakras. It is the same as regards the glands: all imbalance causes a disruption of one or more other, since each secret one or more hormones, which affect the functioning of the organs located nearby.

So a hypo or hyperfunction causes glandular disorders in parts of the body, usually bringing psychic disorders. Note that the hormones secreted by internal secretion glands are transported into the body through the blood stream, hence the importance in consequence of anything that promotes the good circulation.

Each main chakra corresponds:

– One or more endocrine glands
– Organs (organ may depend on two chakras).

Too open chakra (sub-activity) will absorb too much energy.

A chakra too closed (overactive) will not absorb enough energy.

It is only with respect to the chakras of the person concerned, we can say that a chakra is too open or too closed.

The whirlwind of energy that can see out of a chakra (outside the physical body) is its emission into the etheric aura.

For a perfect harmony of our energy system, chakras must be open and all work in perfect balance. It is harmful to our energy system that some chakras are overactive and other sub-enabled, as each chakra influences all others and this, in each of the subtle bodies composing our being.
