A chakra is an energy vortex that collects in energy at night when you are asleep to 'top up' on energy for the next
day. You have 7 major chakras and over 300 minor ones.Your chakras rotate clockwise if healthy and stable, and anti-clockwise
if they are unwell and unstable. You can check this by holding a crystal on a string in front of it.
From the picture, here are the chakras and what they do:
Earth, Physical identity, oriented to self-preservation
Located at the base of the spine, this chakra forms our foundation. It represents
the element earth, and is therefore related to our survival instincts, and to our sense of grounding and connection to our
bodies and the physical plane. Ideally this chakra brings us health, prosperity, security, and dynamic presence.
Water, Emotional identity, oriented to self-gratification
The second chakra, located in the abdomen, lower back, and sexual organs, is related to the element water, and
to emotions and sexuality. It connects us to others through feeling, desire, sensation, and movement. Ideally this chakra
brings us fluidity and grace, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment, and the ability to accept change.
Fire, Ego identity, oriented to self-definition
This chakra is known as the power chakra, located in the solar plexus. It rules our personal power, will, and
autonomy, as well as our metabolism. When healthy, this chakra brings us energy, effectiveness, spontaneity, and non-dominating
Air, Social identity, oriented to self-acceptance
chakra is called the heart chakra and is the middle chakra in a system of seven. It is related to love and is the integrator
of opposites in the psyche: mind and body, male and female, persona and shadow, ego and unity. A healthy fourth chakra allows
us to love deeply, feel compassion, have a deep sense of peace and centeredness.
Sound, Creative identity, oriented to self-expression
is the chakra located in the throat and is thus related to communication and creativity. Here we experience the world symbolically
through vibration, such as the vibration of sound representing language.
Light, Archetypal identity, oriented to self-reflection
This chakra is known as the brow chakra or third eye center. It is related to
the act of seeing, both physically and intuitively. As such it opens our psychic faculties and our understanding of archetypal
levels. When healthy it allows us to see clearly, in effect, letting us "see the big picture."
Thought, Universal identity, oriented to self-knowledge
is the crown chakra that relates to consciousness as pure awareness. It is our connection to the greater world beyond, to
a timeless, spaceless place of all-knowing. When developed, this chakra brings us knowledge, wisdom, understanding, spiritual
connection, and bliss.
Chakras are not living organs, they are placed in the energy body. That is where the Ki flows. Ki flows out of your palm
chakras to form a Ki ball. So if the palm chakras are closed, you will have a very hard time making a Ki ball.
Every so often a chakra becomes blocked. This maybe by inactivity or just too much energy trying to get past at once.
You can unblock them by making energy flow through them. You can do this by Ki training or NEW. Most people who have their
chakras blocked become depressed and sad for no apparent reason.
To unblock your chakras, you can do this exercise: Lie down on a bed with your arms by your side and your legs together.
Visualize Ki being drawn into the chakras and being stored in your tan tien. You can do them all at once, or one at a time.
If you do them all at once, it takes less time but is more difficult. While doing this exercise, you WILL feel sensations
like tingling and discomfert. Try to ignore both of these as it is the chakras opening. If you ever get and itch after doing
this, ignore it. It is the energy passageways opening.
You also have energy storage centres in your energy body. The main one is the sub-navel. But the main Ki storage
centre is the tan tien. The sub-navel storage centre is located around your stomach.
