Chakra Healing & Balancing

Chakra Healing & Balancing

Chakra Healing & Balancing

The Aura

The aura is the field of subtle energies that penetrates and extends out from the physical body. It has its own consciousness, which is really your consciousness but you just need to become more aware of it. You can do this by meditating on it - which can result in feeling and even seeing it. You can get a real sense of who you are which does not end with your skin but extends out several feet around you. Your aura holds representations of everything you have ever experienced in this lifetime and in all past lives. A certain few who are highly clairvoyant can see the experiences in another’s aura.

Illness first starts with the aura as karma brought through from past lives, or negative Ki generated by your subconscious mind in this lifetime. With time these ‘seeds’ become strengthened by more negative energies and experiences they attract. This results in the ‘seeds’ growing and extending their ‘roots’ down through the aura levels until they reach the chakras and if not healed, can extend into the physical body and manifest as dysfunction and illness. Therefore, permanent healing needs to encompass the heart of the problem in the aura, not just in physical body or the chakras.

Even though, these energies are opposite they compliment each other, depend on each other, and keep each other in harmony. They come and go in waves, what goes up must come down. Without the one, the other does not or cannot exist.

They manifest in our bodies as cold (yin) and warmth (yang), ascending (yang), descending (yin) receiving substances (yin) and using these substances in physical activity (yang). Certain body parts and inner organs (upper part of the body - liver, heart, lungs, kidneys and spleen) correspond to Yin while others (lower body part - bladder, small and large intestine, gallbladder and stomach) work with Yang.

A healthy body is in a state of perfect equilibrium between Yin and Yang, if it has become disharmonious, meaning too much Yin over Yang or vice versa, it can be brought back to a perfect state of balance by certain treatments (acupuncture, meditation, diet, Tai Chi, etc.)

Chakars and the endocrine system

Chakra Healing & Balancing

Chakras interact with the physical body through two major vehicles, the endocrine system and the nervous system. Each of the seven main Chakras are associated with one of the seven endocrine glands and also with a particular group of nerves called a Plexus.

Thus, each of these Chakra’s can be associated with particular parts of the body and particular functions within the body controlled by that Plexus or that endocrine gland associated with that Chakra.

One of the strongest associations to affect your health and well-being is that formed with your Endocrine system. The endocrine system is part of the body’s main control mechanism. It comprises of a number of ductless glands that produce the hormones, acting as chemical messengers, that are secreted into the bloodstream from particular organs to stimulate or inhibit physical processes. By adjusting the hormone levels, the endocrine system works to maintain the body in a state of optimum health.

The Chakra’s are linked with the glands responsible for creating the hormones. Unsurprisingly, the positions of the Chakra’s, correspond to the positions of the glands in the endocrine system and have an effect on their functioning.

The link between the Chakra’s and the glands emphasises the holistic nature of health and demonstrates that you need to maintain a balance in your emotional and mental activities as well as your physical diet and exercise, as they are all deeply interrelated.

The Chakras located on the lower part of our body are our instinctual side, the highest ones our mental side. The Chakras can have various levels of activity. When they are open they are considered operative in a normal fashion.

Ideally, all Chakras would contribute to our being. Our instincts would work together with our feelings and thinking. However, this usually is not the case. Some Chakras are not open enough (being under-active) and to compensate, other chakras are over-active. The ideal state is where the Chakras are balanced.

It makes no sense to try to make over-active Chakras less active, as they are compensating for other Chakras which are under-active. To restore the compensation they would be over-active again in no time. To stop them from compensating, the Chakras they are compensating for must be opened. Then all Chakras will be in balance.

By understanding the association between the Chakra’s and the glands you can see how Healing can benefit a multitude of illnesses affecting your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.

Your consciousness, your experience of being, represents everything it is possible for you to experience. All of your senses, all of your perceptions, all of your possible states of awareness, can be divided into seven categories and each of these categories can be associated with a particular Chakra.

Thus, the Chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body but also particular parts of your consciousness. When you feel tension in your consciousness, you feel it in the Chakra associated with the part of your consciousness experiencing the stress and in the parts of the physical body associated with that Chakra.

When there is tension in a particular part of your consciousness and therefore in the Chakra associated with that part of your consciousness, the tension is detected by the nerves of the plexus associated with that Chakra and communicated to the parts of the body controlled by that Plexus.

When the tension continues over a period of time or reaches a particular degree of intensity, the person creates a symptom on the physical level. Again, the symptom serves to communicate to the person through their body what they have been doing to themselves in their consciousness.

When the person changes something about their way of being, they are able to release the stress that had been creating the symptom and they are then able to return to their natural state of balance and good health.

Everything begins with your consciousness. Everything that happens in your life and everything that happens in your body, begins with something happening in your consciousness. Your consciousness, your experience of being, who you really are, is energy. We can call it “life energy” for now. This energy does not just live in your brain, it fills your entire body. Your consciousness is connected to every cell in your body.

Through your consciousness, you can communicate with every cell in your body. Through your consciousness you can communicate with every organ and every tissue. A number of therapies are based on this communication with the organs which have been affected by some kind of symptom or disorder.

This energy which is your consciousness and which reflects your state of consciousness, can be measured through the process known as Kirlian Photography. When you take a Kirlian Photograph of your hand, it shows a certain pattern of energy. If you take a second photograph while imagining that you are sending Love and energy to someone you know, there will be a different pattern of energy shown on the Kirlian Photograph. Thus, we can see that a change in your consciousness creates a change in the energy field that is being photographed, which we call the Aura. This energy field shown in the Kirlian Photographs has been quantified, so that when there are “holes” in particular parts of the energy field, these are said to correspond to particular weaknesses in specific parts of the physical body.

The interesting thing about this is that the weakness shows up in the energy field before there is ever any evidence of it on the physical level. Thus, we have an interesting direction of manifestation shown through what we have described:

a.) A change of consciousness creates a change in the energy field.

b.) A change in the energy field happens before a change in the physical body.

The direction of manifestation is from the consciousness, through the energy field to the physical body. When we look at things this way, we see that it is not the physical body creating the energy field, the Aura, but rather the Aura or energy field that is creating the physical body. What we see as the physical body is the end result of a process that begins with the consciousness.

Energy Healing can Realign, unblock and balance your Chakras. This provides Healing on an emotional, physical and spiritual level which ultimately leads to better health, a better state of well being.

The nadis - ida, pingala & sushumna

Nadis are channels for the flow of consciousness (the literal meaning of nadi is’flow’). Just as the negative and positive forces of electricity flow through complex circuits, in the same way, pram shako (vital force) and manas shako (mental force) flow through every part of our body via these nadis. According to the tantras there are 72,000 or more such channels or networks through which the stimuli flow like an electric current from one point to another.

These 72,000 nadis cover the whole body and through them the inherent rhythms of activity in the different organs of the body are maintained. Within this network of nadis, there are ten main channels, and of these ten, three are most important for they control the flow of prana and consciousness within all the other nadis of the body.

These three nadis are called ida, pingala and sushumna.

Ida nadi controls all the mental processes while pingala nadi controls all the vital processes. Ida is known as the moon, and pingala as the sun. A third nadi, sushumna, is the channel for the awakening of spiritual consciousness, Kundalini. Kundalini is a Sanskrit word meaning either “coiled up” or “coiling like a snake.” They can be considered as pranic force, mental force and spiritual force.

The serpents in the illustration represent these two major energy channels, the ”ida” and “pingala”. As sushumna flows inside the central canal of the spinal cord, ida and pingala simultaneously flow on the outer surface of the spinal cord, still within the bony vertebral column. Ida, pingala and sushumna nadis begin in mooladhara in the pelvic floor. From there, sushumna flows directly upwards within the central canal, while ida passes to the left and pingala to the right.

At swadhisthana chakra, or the sacral plexus, the three nadis come together again and ida and pingala cross over one another. Ida passes up to the right, pingala to the left, and sushumna continues to flow directly upwards in the central canal. The three nadis come together again at manipura chakra, the solar plexus, and so on. Finally, ida, pingala and sushumna meet in the ajna chakra.

Ida and pingala function in the body alternately and not simultaneously. If you observe your nostrils, you will find that generally one is flowing freely and the other is blocked. When the left nostril is open, it is the lunar energy or ida nadi which is flowing. When the right nostril is free, the solar energy or pingala nadi is flowing.

Investigations have shown that when the right nostril is flowing, the left hemisphere of the brain is activated. When the left nostril is flowing, the right hemisphere is activated. This is how the nadis or energy channels control the brain and the events of life and consciousness.

When the ida and pingala energy flow is balanced, then the internal energy flows through the central channel called the “sushumna”. When the energy flow is balanced, the sushumna channel becomes active and there is a sense of tranquility and peace. It is through the sushmuna channel that one practices the mantra meditations to experience higher levels of consciousness.
