The chakras are portal or structures which help to
channel and integrate subtle energies into the physical body. The body
has 7 primary chakras but over 2000 secondary ones which help to direct
and hold the integrity of our 3 main elements – mind, body and spirit.
Since the flow of this triad is always shifting, directed by our intent
and consciousness, so too must the chakra system recalibrate and find
new points of balance which each shift. In other words, just as our
thinking, communication, perspectives and intentions change, so do the
requirements of our chakra systems.
The chakra system deals
mainly with subtle energy and so for the most part this energy is able
to move through subtle shifts of tension within the physical body. With
enough subtle tension however, the flow of energy will slow and even
stop. The result is that the body, mind and emotions will begin
receiving less and less information. Information will result in less
understanding and less understanding will lead to less ability. Usually
this does not happen in a dramatic way, it may take years, the same way
that plumbing can take years to clog up and eventually block the flow
Depending on which chakras are blocked or limited, the
physical and mental consciousness will exhibit various manifestations.
Blockages in the solar plexus for instance can result in a lack of will
or strong intent to take action. This will be experienced in the body
as a lessening of the bio-chemicals that create the sensation or
emotion of will and purpose. Emotionally and mentally this will be
experienced in corresponding mind states such as apathy or boredom.
Blockages in the crown chakra will result in a disconnection from the
Higher Self, as well as a difficulty connecting to the bigger picture
in ones life. Just as with the solar plexus chakra, specific
bio-chemicals will correspond to this particular blockage.
link between the energy of the chakra and the bio-chemistry of the body
is simply about information. There is nothing mysterious about it at
all. Our whole being exists and survives because of information. There
is information between the heart and the brain, information between
organs and enzymes, hormones and blood, oxygen and lungs, as well as
information from the outside world such as people, books, trees, the
sun, the moon, gravity and electricity. Information is influence and
expression, through connecting with this information a communication
happens. This is the same communication that occurs between the energy
of the chakras and the physical body.
The foundation ‘foot in the
door principles to any type of chakra balancing should begin with
simply spending time at the chakra location. Forget about what is
written in books, references or even here for that matter. Nothing will
compare to actual ‘sit down time with your own chakras. Its like
spending time with a loved one, kids, friends and so on – we can go out
and seek advanced knowledge and professional advice, but sometimes what
is really needed is simply to spend time with them. Its the same deal
with the chakras. An amazing amount of communication will open up when
we just listen and observe – and in this listening a great deal of
balancing and integration will just happen. The results will be seen in
the way the physical body feels, the mind thinks, the emotions move and
the spirit flows through us.
