The eastern tradition of the chakra system teaches us that along the vertical core of our bodies, we each have seven subtly spinning energy centers which span from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.
Along with yoga, there are many other ways in which you can support your body’s energetic centers. While I had no real knowledge of the chakra system back then, I see now how my process was about first grounding myself at a physical level.
I cleaned up my diet and my lifestyle, began to move and breathe with exercise and yoga, and perhaps most of all, the process of self-forgiveness and compassion began. Connecting with these amazing energy centers we call the chakra system means I find that inner power, the self-love and love for others, the intuition, the forgiveness, and the release of the fears and resentments that knock me off balance.

When I got into the gym today, 315 felt light and I had the urge to do more than my soul suggested, but I’ve learned the hard way to stick with Higher-guidance. I did six sets of 4 at 315 off the box and coupled that with reptilian crawling for the length of my track in the gym, which is 30 meters.

Chakras function in much the same manner as a satellite antenna that both sends and receives information. Here you can see the energy field and chakras of a human being taken by advanced photographic technology, which is now widely available. To a skilled therapist, each color you see in such a photograph (or with your own spiritual vision) has specific meaning. As a therapist, I look at the colors and feel the energies associated with each client to know what questions to ask and what suggestions to make. The point I’m trying to get across is that chakras are no longer fluffy metaphysical stuff, but are the stuff of hard science!
Scientists investigating subtle energies have found that all living things, including the earth itself, have chakras.
It isn’t a surprise to those of us who understand how chakras work that each major city in the world happens to be situated directly atop of key earth chakras. In the photo of the chakras expressing energy from the human body above, you will see that there are chakras on the front and back of the body. Those on the front of the body express energy related to an individual’s desires, while those on the back of the body correlate to an individual’s use of their will power. Just as each person you meet (including yourself) has a unique personality, dreams, goals and experiences that are expressed in the energy of your body, energy fields (aura) and give us a sense of them, and they us, each city has it’s own individual personality and energy profile.
I’m sure most of you have noticed that there can be a pretty significant difference in the people from city to city; are the people the same in Seattle as they are in Miami? In my diagram above, you can see the chakras represented by the color of light they commonly express as seen by those with clairvoyance (inner-vision or spiritual vision). If we don’t evolve according to these life lessons, we tend to become stuck or animalized in that we may feel we are struggling to survive. Each of the first five chakras represent the dominant psycho-physical themes we may embody to achieve wholeness.
I call the bottom three chakras the animal chakras because they are common to both animals and humans, and because the life lessons at these levels are common to all living creatures.
The first thing any animal (or human) must do is learn to create safety and security for themselves. For an animal, this typically means assessing its hunting grounds for intruders and doing what is necessary to feed itself.
In nature, it is very unusual to see an animal procreate (2nd chakra) before it feels safe and has adequate food to feed itself and its offspring. Once we reach the fifth chakra level (age 35-42), which is primarily about communicating to self and others and using our creative energies effectively, we have finished our learning phase.
At that point (provided our previous lessons have been learned), we now begin the second phase of our life, which is to exemplify the lessons learned for all those in their growth phase.
We are tasked as living examples and now we head back down the ladder so-to-speak, with our final lesson being a healthy willingness to let go of the body at death to begin a new life in the next dimension or reality.
For example, the person I’ve exemplified above with financial challenges causing safety and security issues is likely to also have some degree of dysfunction in either lumbar spine, sacrum, coccyx region, and often have some degree of adrenal fatigue.
The greater the pain or dysfunction, or number of dysfunctions expressed, the greater the energetic imbalance at the body-mind level as a general theme. There is real benefit to addressing these issues, as well as understanding the nature of how the human ego grows and develops. If there is an imbalance created in the first seven years of life that isn’t resolved before entering the second seven-year phase, the unresolved problems will mirror themselves within the next theme. Because each psycho-physical theme we grow through is developmental to the successive themes, we can, and often do become more and more complex and challenging to ourselves and others in relationships as we age. For example, someone who has unresolved safety and security issues entering into the second period (which deals with sex identity, sexuality, and the use of creative energies) is very likely to have a hard time feeling safe in intimate relationships.
Of the myriad of things that can be done to aid healing (outlined in the books suggested above), following the advice given as to how to lower your health appraisal questionnaires in my book, How To Eat, Move and Be Healthy!
Because our mind is an embodied process that regulates the flow of energy and information, it is often easiest to start the healing process by meeting our basic (animal a??) needs, such as getting adequate water, good food, exercise and rest. I have found that those with imbalances in a given chakra often have a hard time creating the sound that correlates with the chakra.
After you’ve got that one working well, keep going until you’ve addressed the most challenging one. When you identify a chakra that is imbalanced with the methods I’ve suggested above, you can test to see if wearing, holding, or exposing your self to light of the correlating color is helpful.
If looking at, holding or wearing the color that correlates with your imbalance seems to make you feel better, then exposure to that color is often helpful because it adds more light energy you can use at that level to make changes.
If you feel worse in any way, you may be addressing a chakra imbalance that is a symptom of a deeper imbalance.
Therefore, if you get negative symptoms using the color that correlates with you imbalance, I suggest working backward or down the chakra tree testing each color along the way until you find one that feels good to you. Additionally, once you find a supportive color, using the tone associated with that color will give added benefit. It is also wise to look at your overall diet and see if you are eating foods of the color that your body-mind responds favorably to. There are many audio CD’s now available with specific tracks of music to aid balance in each chakra. If you have a musical instrument, you can play with each of the notes on the tone scale until you find notes or sounds that are soothing to you and they will have a similar beneficial function.
In closing, I’d like to highlight that the grand majority of chakra imbalance problems I see clinically result directly from poor choices. All the red meat, toning “DO”, crystals, essential oils, and the likes, will be very short lived until a person takes responsibility for the choices they are making that are creating the challenges! The first photo was taken at 11:00 (the green, lavender and violet), which is close on the colour scale to white (which I was told is very spiritual).
My headache, gastro-intestinal bloating, gas and nausea continued into the day, accompanying my dwindling mood.
I typically start my healing sessions by having my patients complete PPS Success Mastery Lesson 1. This program is specifically designed to help people look at the challenges in their life and see what can be gained from them. It also guides you to an awareness of the ten essential components of a legacy or overarching life dream so that anyone can become aware of what it is that they desire to create and make intelligent decisions in that regard.

There is nothing better for balancing your chakras than having a clear definition of what makes you happy and a set of core values to guide your decision making process in relationship to self or others.
In my career, I’ve found that the people who have a clear concept of what they desire to experience and core values that guide them to the effective creation of such experiences never stay down long.

Every problem we have in our lives can be traced back to its source, which resides within our energy body, or chakras. In this chakra kit, you’ll receive guidance and tools to get your chakras fit and healthy. As you can see from the images and the chart that I’ve included in this post, the chakra centres each occupy different areas of the body, and are responsible for different feelings and psychological responses in our life. Understanding now that chakras are related to these glands, it is possible to understand that many chakra based therapies and techniques could have a real physical impact on the body and mind. Of course there are still going to be some practitioners who are not effective or lacking in skill and understanding. If you are interested in checking out some chakra balancing therapies, I highly recommend the Chakra Balancing Crystal Bowl Meditation at the Sanctuary of Peaceful Healing, and Sharon Young’s Chakra Balancing Aromatherapy and Massage Session.

Within every human being there is a subtle body of three energy channels (nadis) and seven energy centres (chakras).
Each chakra has different qualities and by healing or balancing these chakras, we awaken and enhance their qualities within us, making us more balanced and integrated. Each of these subtle chakras is a storehouse of energy for the gross plexuses supplying the physical, mental and emotional demands of the sympathetic nervous system. Situated below the sacrum bone, the awakened Mooladhara chakra gives us innocence and wisdom. The Swadishthana chakra moves like a satellite around the Nabhi chakra and the Void and provides us with our sense of aesthetics, art, music, our appreciation and connection with nature. The quality of Swadisthan is pure knowledge (Nirmala Vidya), knowledge of things as they are in the absolute sense. The key to true creativity is in achieving the state of thoughtless awareness (nirvichar samadhi).
When enlightened by the Kundalini, the Nabhi chakra gives us unconditional generosity, complete contentment and profound inner peace.
When the Spirit manifests, you see things in their true perspective, through purified attention, and give up worrying. The Agnya is the narrow gate which, when open, allows our kundalini to ascend to the limbic area of the brain. When the Kundalini reaches the Sahasrara, the thousand petals of this chakra begin to open and enlightenment begins to manifest. The right channel (yellow) corresponds to our actions and planning, to our physical and mental activity.
The central channel is the channel of ascent, it is the power which sustains our evolution and guides us, consciously or unconsciously, towards the higher awareness of the Sahasrara. You will learn more detailed explanation about the chakras and basic balancing techniques in our free Online Meditation Course.

I think the top image that shows the relation between chakras and fingers isn’t completely correct. From what I know, the index finger is related to the 3rd chakra, and the index finger to the 5th.
But you’ll see through meditation, once you feel those fingers, the moment you meditate on the chakra that relates to it, it works. ReplyDaniel May 23rd, 2015Would still love to know the names and colours of the newer ones.
The energy of this chakra allows us to feel the mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature and get connected at a fundamental level.
Please make sure to check out the site to keep up with all the yoga happenings in the metro Atlanta GA area. Ideally these little wheels are supported perfectly, providing us with a balanced state of emotional, physical and energetic health. Meditation can help you to tune into any imbalances you may be experiencing so that you may work to create harmony. At the time I was a single mom to a 5-year-old, owner of a successful business, and going through a difficult breakup.
I asked for help and found an integrative doctor and a homeopath to get me from a desperate survival mode to a feeling alive and open.
On top of it all perhaps is the humility that I am a spiritual being in a physical world and we are all connected and interdependent with one another.

After a few years of a dedicated daily hot yoga practice, Lisa found herself leading a yoga class when the instructor overslept, and her passion for teaching was discovered.

During a session with her, you receive an hour of healing that helps you to release past life and early life blocks and patterns that are holding you back from fully expressing who you are.
I was moving a bit slow after three nights out in my rock garden visiting with the moon, but it was worth it! He’s gone, but the fruits of his life live on in me and others like you who are willing to learn and grow. These numbers correlate to the life lessons to be obtained in each lifetime so that we can first and foremost, become human in our use of self. These life lessons come in seven year periods beginning at the first (root) chakra in red at the bottom, which deals with the issues of creating safety and security for ourselves.
This lists the main issue or psycho-physical them our growth is oriented around at each seven year period of our growth and development.
If there is a problem with the tree’s ability to feed itself and grow that isn’t resolved at any period, that dysfunction becomes part of the fabric of the tree from then onward; a little diseased tree left untended becomes a bigger, older diseased tree!
A simple way to begin assessing yourself and healing is to sound out the tones listed in the above diagram (DO, REY, ME, FA, SO, LA, TI). You are likely to find it easier to implement the changes needed to create wholeness in your life. For example, root chakra imbalances related to money problems are as common as white bread. The colours have regressed in the chart towards the red end which I am told is closer to anger and conflict within me. I can only recoil in horror as to the damaging affect continuous exposure to this will have on the human body, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Core values are a self-imposed value structure created to specifically manage your choices such that you optimize your chances of creating peace, joy and fulfillment in your life. Once you learn to clear and balance your own chakras, you’ll be in better over-all health, and then you’re able to better manifest the life you desire! Now, you can have it all in the comfort of your home and you can work on your chakras whenever you so desire.

For instance, if the Swadisthan chakra looks after the abdominal organs, it also supplies energy to creative action and thought and depth to the aesthetic sensibility. Innocence gives us joy without the limitation of conditionings and prejudice, a quality that can be found on small children. It looks after our digestive organs and provides us with the dynamic energy to do physical, mental and creative work.
This knowledge needs to be experienced by ourselves directly not through an external agency. Like a lake, silent and still, all the beauty of the creation around You, is reflected within. On the right side, it looks after the upper part of our liver which is the organ of our attention. Because of liver problems and the consequent irritability people often develop the habit of expressing discontent at the slightest provocation. The spirit manifests when our heart is open, at which point we feel the pure joy of existence and the meaning and purpose of our place in creation.
As it awakens we discover greater self-respect (left Vishuddhi) and greater respect for others (right Vishuddhi). We may experience a pulsation at the fontanelle bone, followed by a subtle flow of cool vibrations. Our human birth can be likened to the hatching of an egg and Self-realization to the breaking of the egg and the emergence of the bird.
Its termination is the superego, which is the storehouse of all our memories, habits and conditionings. Its termination is the ego, which gives us the idea of I-ness, the sense that we are separate from the world. In my meditative visions I have felt that the pineal gland was not just a spiritual connection point but an actual habitation for my spirit. However the chakras’chart is correct, the index finger is related to the throat chakra and the finger for stomach or belly chakra is the middle finger or 3 rd finger. What everybody needs right now is to establish thoughtless awareness, then a doubtless state.
However, life happens: both internal patterns and external situations such as physical tensions and other stressors can cause excesses, deficiencies and blocks in these centers. In addition, by tapping into these centers through journaling, art and conscious awareness of them, you can empower yourself to release blocks that may be holding yourself back from expressing yourself fully and authentically. With this stability, I was able to heal, and other people and situations appeared to me due to my willingness to see them.
With willingness and curiosity, and perhaps a bit of fearlessness thrown in, finding your own balance is within your power!
She went on to earn her 200-hour yoga teacher certification in Pranakriya Yoga and additional certifications in Grounded Yoga, Radiant Child Yoga, Street Yoga, Lisa continues to study, always the student and has foundational training in yoga therapy and hopes to earn her 500-hour certification soon.
She can help you to cut the energetic cords that bind you to trauma and relationships that cause you to feel fear and which keep you from fully connecting to your life purpose. If you are having problems meeting your financial needs for safety and security, for example, then you are very likely to have an imbalance at the root chakra level.
Just as I mentioned above, the more problems a person has in this column, the greater the imbalance.
I had an organic breakfast of chicken, tomatoes, asparagus and raw garlic at approximately 08:00. How much of my energy and own nutrient stores is being used up to digest, metabolise, assimilate and eliminate this garbage? Before Kundalini awakening, the energy in the chakras is limited and exhaustible, as in a battery. We seek food, shelter and comfort and ultimately, we seek to evolve into a new state of spiritual awareness and to receive our Self-realization.
Then you know the Spirit is not bothered with passing fads and trends, a button missing here or there.
Forgiveness is the power to let go of anger, hatred and resentment and to discover, in humility, the nobility and generosity of the spirit.
As our attention and our kundalini rise to Sahasrara chakra we enter a new dimension of consciousness.
When you tune into your body’s subtle energy field and bring it into harmony with your physical being, you are able to see patterns of behavior and emotions that are holding you back.
After surviving my years as a party girl and breaking free from an abusive relationship, I thought I had no more worries. Janet receives guidance throughout the session from your spirit team, including animal spirits, angels and your personal guides.
After realization, they are connected by Kundalini passing through Sushumna (the middle channel) to the infinite current of the universal superconscious, to the all-pervading power of divine love.
Fortunately this innate innocence is never destroyed and can return to us by practicing Sahaja Meditation. Once we start to see that by not forgiving others we are actually doing no harm to anyone other than ourselves, we start to realize that it is not only wise and generous to forgive but also very practical and pragmatic. When you are in Thoughtless Awareness there is only you and the Divine flowing its divine energy into you. That is why we do not wish to include them for now, the attention has to come first on what`s reachable right now. You are also able to recognize your strengths so that you can learn to work with them to support you on your path.
This unique messaging provides you with insights into how to shift your thinking and emotional responses so that you may more fully enjoy your relationships with others and find the career path that aligns with your higher purpose.
It is like the sun which is obscured by clouds but which shines again after the clouds pass. We rise above the three channels of the subtle system-beyond the past, present and future and into a timeless state and experience the inner joy and bliss of the divine. We are suddenly tuned into the universal wavelength of vibrations, to the subtle joy that is present in nature. So if anybody could properly guide me what should be done then I would properly do and wanted to see what actually chakras are. With this awareness, it is then possible to break through your own barriers so that you may fully actualize yourself. Each session wraps up with a thirty minute discussion of the guidance and you also receive a write-up through email. In India the elephant-headed deity, Shri Ganesha, is worshipped as the essence of innocence and wisdom. In this state of union with our spirit, we become witness of our body, our mind, our thoughts, our emotions, and ultimately the detached witness of the drama of our lives. Forgiveness melts away all our ego and conditionings, our false ideas of racism and nationalism and our misidentifications. When Kundalini reaches Sahasrara the lotus petals open and enlightenment (samadhi) takes place. He has the body of a child, symbolizing innocence and the head of an elephant, symbolizing humility and wisdom. It wasn’t until I was willing to face these feelings and become proactive in my own life that I was able to begin a path of healing and wellness. Putting our attention on this chakra can help us experience mental silence – the true meditation. If you see how a small puppy runs to every person it sees in a park just to give them its love and share with them its joy, that is the essence of love. The Heart chakra also manifests in the head at the fontanelle bone so it’s important to keep our Heart chakra clean, as this is the entry point to the super consciousness, where the Kundalini escapes from the subtle system and unites us with the Paramachaitanya-the all-pervading power of divine love.
