BODY CHAKRAS, KUNDALINI, REIKI & CRYSTAL STONES

All these terms are inter-related since their healing properties and spiritual awakening levels are closely bonded. Knowledge about the theory of chakras can help you better understand yourself, your life, and your development, making it possible for you to deal with yourself in a more harmonious manner. A chakra (Sanskrit - wheel) is an energy center of the body that organizes certain life processes on physical, mental and emotional level. Clairvoyants see a chakra as a many-colored, rotating wheel. The Chakras are energy centres within the body.  They act somewhat like psychic organs that produce and distribute energies throughout your being.  In most people the Chakras are not active hence the lack of people who are aware of their intuitive and psychic sides. 

Kundalini (power of desire and self-realization) means a Coiled Corporeal Energy which lies coiled at the bottom of the spine within Muladhara Chakra. The progress of kundalini through the different chakras leads to different levels of awakening and mystical experience, until the kundalini finally reaches the top of the head, Sahasrara chakra, producing an extremely profound mystical experience. The awakening process can be done by means of yoga, meditation and pranayama.

Reiki is universal life force energy also known as touch therapy / energy therapy / palm healing therapy combined by two words Rei (soul / spirit) and Ki (vital energy). It is a spiritual practice developed by a Japanese Buddhist Dr. Mikao Usui. This spiritual energy is already there in all the living beings which by means of Reiki, the therapist transfers / channels it to the patient by gently laying hands on specific place. This process activates the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restores physical and emotional well-being.

In giving Reiki an understanding of the aspects of each chakra can be of great value, as patterns of emotional or psychological behaviour are assigned to particular chakras. Interestingly the chakras are in the sequence of VIBGYOR from top to bottom. Various stones / crystals are used for the healing properties / activation / attunement of these chakras.

Below is a description of the seven chakras, with various associations.

Sahasrara: The Crown Chakra 

Chakra07.gif
Sahasrara, which means 1000 petalled lotus, is generally considered to be the chakra of pure consciousness, within which there is neither object nor subject. When the female kundalini Shakti energy rises to this point, it unites with the male Shiva energy, and a state of liberating samadhi is attained. Symbolized by a lotus with one thousand multi-coloured petals, it is located either at the crown of the head, or above the crown of the head. Sahasrara is represented by the colour white and it involves such issues as inner wisdom and the death of the body.

Its role may be envisioned somewhat similarly to that of the pituitary gland, which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and also connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus. According to author Gary Osborn, the thalamus is thought to have a key role in the physical basis of consciousness and is the 'Bridal Chamber' mentioned in the Gnostic scriptures. Sahasrara's inner aspect deals with the release of karma, physical action with meditation, mental action with universal consciousness and unity, and emotional action with "beingness."

In Tibetan buddhism, the point at the crown of the head is represented by a white circle, with 33 downward pointing petals. It is of primary importance in the performance of phowa, or consciousness projection after death, in order to obtain rebirth in a Pure Land. Within this chakra is contained the White drop, or Bodhicitta, which is the essence of masculine energy.

Ajna: The Brow Chakra 

Chakra06.gif
Ajna is symbolised by a lotus with two petals, and corresponds to the colours violet, indigo or deep blue, though it is traditionally described as white. It is at this point that the two side nadis Ida and Pingala are said to terminate and merge with the central channel Sushumna, signifying the end of duality. The seed syllable for this chakra is the syllable OM, and the presiding deity is Ardhanarishvara, who is a half male, half female Shiva/Shakti. The Shakti goddess of Ajna is called Hakini.

Ajna (along with Bindu), is known as the third eye chakra and is linked to the pineal gland which may inform a model of its envisioning. The pineal gland is a light sensitive gland that produces the hormone melatonin which regulates sleep and waking up. Ajna's key issues involve balancing the higher and lower selves and trusting inner guidance. Ajna's inner aspect relates to the access of intuition. Mentally, Ajna deals with visual consciousness. Emotionally, Ajna deals with clarity on an intuitive level. (Note: some believe that the pineal and pituitary glands should be exchanged in their relationship to the Crown and Brow chakras, based on the description in Arthur Avalon's book on kundalini called Serpent Power or empirical research.)

In Tibetan Buddhism, this point is actually the end of the central channel, since the central channel rises up from the sexual organ to the crown of the head, and then curves over the head and down to the third eye. While the central channel finishes here, the two side channels continue down to the two nostrils.

Vishuddha: The Throat Chakra

Chakra05.gif
Vishuddha (also Vishuddhi) is depicted as a silver crescent within a white circle, with 16 light or pale blue, or turquoise petals. The seed mantra is Ham, and the residing deity is Panchavaktra shiva, with 5 heads and 4 arms, and the Shakti is Shakini.

Vishuddha may be understood as relating to communication and growth through expression. This chakra is paralleled to the thyroid, a gland that is also in the throat and which produces thyroid hormone, responsible for growth and maturation. Physically, Vishuddha governs communication, emotionally it governs independence, mentally it governs fluent thought, and spiritually, it governs a sense of security. In Tibetan buddhism, this chakra is red, with 16 upward pointing petals. It plays an important role in Dream Yoga, the art of lucid dreaming.

Anahata: The Heart Chakra 

Chakra04.gif
Anahata, or Anahata-puri, or padma-sundara is symbolised by a circular flower with twelve green petals. Within it is a yantra of two intersecting triangles, forming a hexagram, symbolising a union of the male and female. The seed mantra is Yam, the presiding deity is Ishana Rudra Shiva, and the Shakti is Kakini.

Anahata is related to the thymus, located in the chest. The thymus is an element of the immune system as well as being part of the endocrine system. It is the site of maturation of the T cells responsible for fending off disease and may be adversely affected by stress. Anahata is related to the colours green or pink. Key issues involving Anahata involve complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, rejection and well-being. Physically Anahata governs circulation, emotionally it governs unconditional love for the self and others, mentally it governs passion, and spiritually it governs devotion.

In Tibetan Buddhism, this centre is extremely important, as being the home of the indestructible red/white drop, which carries our consciousness to our next lives. It is described as being white, circular, with eight downward pointing petals, and the seed syllable Hum inside. During mantra recitation in the lower tantras, a flame is imagined inside of the heart, from which the mantra rings out. Within the higher tantras, this chakra is very important for realising the Clear Light.

Manipura: The Solar Plexus Chakra 

Chakra03.gif
Manipura or manipuraka is symbolised by a downward pointing triangle with ten petals, along with the color yellow. The seed syllable is Ram, and the presiding deity is Braddha Rudra, with Lakini as the Shakti.

Manipura is related to the metabolic and digestive systems. Manipura is believed to correspond to Islets of Langerhans, which are groups of cells in the pancreas, as well as the outer adrenal glands and the adrenal cortex. These play a valuable role in digestion, the conversion of food matter into energy for the body. The colour that corresponds to Manipura is yellow. Key issues governed by Manipura are issues of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex. Physically, Manipura governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth.

Swadhisthana: The Sacral Chakra 

Chakra02.gif
Swadhisthana, Svadisthana or adhishthana is symbolised by a white lotus within which is a crescent moon, with six vermillion, or orange petals. The seed mantra is Vam, and the presiding deity is Brahma, with the Shakti being Rakini (or Chakini). The animal associated is the crocodile of Varuna.

The Sacral Chakra is located in the sacrum (hence the name) and is considered to correspond to the testes or the ovaries that produce the various sex hormonesinvolved in the reproductive cycle. Swadisthana is also considered to be related to, more generally, the genitourinary system and the adrenals. The key issues involving Swadisthana are relationships, violence, addictions, basic emotional needs, and pleasure. Physically, Swadisthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm.

Muladhara: The Root Chakra [edit]

Chakra01.gif
Muladhara or root chakra is symbolised by a lotus with four petals and the color red. This center is located at the base of the spine in the coccygeal region. It is said to relate to the gonads and the adrenal medulla, responsible for the fight-or-flight response when survival is under threat.

Muladhara is related to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality. Physically, Muladhara governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security. Muladhara has a relation to the sense of smell.

This chakra is where the three main nadis separate and begin their upward movement. Dormant Kundalini rests here, wrapped three and a half times around the black Svayambhu linga, the lowest of three obstructions to her full rising (also known as knots or granthis). It is the seat of the red bindu, the female drop (which in Tibetan vajrayana is located at the navel chakra).

The seed syllable is Lam (pronounced lum), the deity is Ganesh, and the Shakti is Dakini. The associated animal is the elephant.

Lower chakras 

There are said to be a series of seven chakras below muladhara going down the leg, corresponding the base animal instincts, and to the Hindu underworld patala. They are called atala, vitala, sutala, talatala, rasatala, mahatala and patala.

Atala 

This chakra is located in the hips, it governs fear and lust.

Vitala 

Located in the thighs, it governs anger and resentment.

Sutala 

Located in the knees, it governs jealousy.

Talatala 

Translated as 'under the bottom level', it is located in the calves, and it is a state of prolonged confusion and instinctive wilfulness.

Rasatala 

Located in the ankles, it is the centre of selfishness and pure animal nature.

Mahatala 

Located in the feet, this is the dark realm 'without conscience', and inner blindness.

Patala 

Located in the soles of the feet, this is the realm of malice, murder, torture and hatred, and in Hindu mythology it borders on the realm of Naraka, or Hell.

Others 

There are said to be 21 minor chakras which are reflected points of the major chakras. These 21 are further grouped into 10 bilateral minor chakras that correspond to the foot, hand, knee, elbow, groin, clavicular, navel, shoulder and ear. The spleen may also be classified as a minor chakra by some authorities despite not having an associated coupled minor chakra.


How to Open Your Spiritual Chakras - LAM, VAM, RAM, HAM, YAM, OM & AUM !!


According to Buddhist/Hindu teaching all of the chakras should contribute to a human's well-being. Our instincts would join forces with our feelings and thinking. Some of our chakras are usually not open all the way (meaning, they operate just like when you were born), but some are over-active, or even near closed. If the chakras are not balanced, peace with the self cannot be achieved.

Read on to discover the art of becoming aware of the chakras, as well as a very reliable technique designed to open them.

Steps

  1.  
    Understand that if you are opening your chakras, there is no need to try and make over-active chakras less active. They are simply compensating for the inactivity of closed chakras. Once all of the chakras are opened, the energy evens out, and becomes balanced.
     
     
  2.  
    Open the Root Chakra (red). This chakra is based on being physically aware and feeling comfortable in many situations. If opened, you should feel well-balanced and sensible, stable and secure. You don't distrust people around you for no reason.You feel present in what is happening right now, and very connected to your physical body. If it's under-active: you tend to be fearful or nervous, and easily feel unwelcome. If it's over-active: you may be materialistic and greedy. You feel as if you should be secure and are unwelcome to a change.
    • Use the body and become aware of it. Do yoga, walk around the block, or do some manual house-cleaning. These activities let your body become known to you, and will strengthen the chakra.
       
    • Ground yourself. This means that you should connect with the ground, and feel it beneath you. To do this, stand up straight and relaxed, put your feet shoulder width apart, and slightly bend your knees. Move your pelvis forward a little, and keep your body balanced, so that your weight is evenly distributed over the soles of your feet. Then sink your weight forward. Stay in this position for several minutes.
       
    • After grounding yourself, sit cross-legged, as shown in the picture above.
       
    • Let the tips of your thumb and index finger touch gently, in a peaceful motion.
       
    • Concentrate on the Root chakra and what it stands for, at the spot in between the genitals and the anus.
       
    • Silently, yet clearly, chant the sound "LAM."
       
    • All this time, let yourself relax, still thinking about the chakra, it's meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
       
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed. You may have a "clean" feeling.
       
     
  3.  
    Open the Sacral Chakra (orange). This chakra deals with feeling and sexuality. If open, feeling are released with liberty, and are expressed without you being over-emotional. You would be open to affinity and can be passionate as well as outgoing. You also have no problems based on sexuality. If it's under-active: you tend to be unemotional or impassive, and are not very open to anybody. If it's over-active: you tend to be sensitive and emotional all the time. You may also be very sexual.
    • Sit on your knees, with your back straight, but relaxed.
       
    • Lay your hands in your lap, palms ups, on top of each other. Left hand underneath, the palm touching the back fingers of the right hand, and the thumbs touch gently.

       
       
       
       
       
    • Concentrate on the Sacral Chakra and what it stands for, at the sacral bone (lower back).
       
    • Silently, yet clearly, chant the sound "VAM."
       
    • All this time, let yourself relax, still thinking about the chakra, it's meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
       
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed. Again, you may have a "clean" feeling.
       
     
  4.  
    Open the Navel Chakra (yellow). This chakra encircles confidence, especially when in a group. When open, you should feel in control and have good feeling of dignity in yourself. If it's under-active: you tend to be passive and indescisive. You could be frequently apprehensive and this doesn't reward you. If it's over-active: you tend to be imperious and aggressive.
    • Sit on your knees, with your back straight, but relaxed.
       
    • Put your hands before your stomach, slightly below your solar plexus. Let the fingers join at the tops, all pointing away from you. Cross the thumbs and straighten the fingers (this is important).

       
       
       
       
       
    • Concentrate on the Navel Chakra and what it stands for, at the spine, slightly above the navel.
       
    • Silently, yet clearly, chant the sound "RAM."
       
    • All this time, let yourself relax even more, continuing to think about the chakra, it's meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
       
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed. You should have a "clean" feeling (for every chakra).
       
     
  5.  
    Open the Heart Chakra (green). This chakra is all about love, caring, and endearment. When open, you seem to be compassionate and friendly, always working in amicable relationships. If it's under-active: you tend to be cold and unfriendly. If it's over-active: you tend to be so "loving" towards people that you suffocate them, and you could be seen as selfish for it.
    • Sit cross-legged.
       
    • Let the tips of your index finger and thumb touch on both hands.
       
    • Put your left hand on your left knee and your right hand in front of the lower part of your breastbone.
       
    • Concentrate on the Heart Chakra and what it stands for, at the spine, level with the heart.
       
    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound "YAM."
       
    • All this time, continue to relax your body, and think of the chakra, it's meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
       
    • Keep doing this until you are completely relaxed, and the "clean" feeling returns and/or intensifies within your body.
       
     
  6.  
    Open the Throat Chakra (light blue). This chakra is based on self-expression and communication. When the chakra is open, expressing yourself is easy, and art seems to be a great way to do this. If it's under-active: you tend not to speak too much, so you are classified as shy. If you lie often, this chakra can be blocked. If it's over-active: you tend to speak so much, it annoys a lot of people. You could also be a pretty bad listener.
    • Once again, sit on your knees.
       
    • Cross your fingers on the inside of your hands, without the thumbs. Let the thumbs touch at the tops, and pull them up a bit.
       
    • Concentrate on the Throat Chakra and what it stands for, at the base of the throat.
       
    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound "HAM."
       
    • All this time, keep on relaxing your body, thinking of the chakra, it's meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
       
    • Keep doing this for about five minutes, and the "clean" feeling will intensify once again.
       
     
  7.  
    Open the Third Eye Chakra (blue). Like it's name, this chakra deals with insight. When open, you have excellent clairvoyance, and tend to dream a lot. If it's under-active: you tend to look up to other people to think for you. Relying on beliefs too often, you also tend to be confused most of the time. If it's over-active: you tend to live in a world imagination all day long. In the extremes, you could suffer from frequent daydreams or even hallucinations.
    • Sit cross-legged.
       
    • Put your hands in front of the lower part of the breast. The middle fingers should be straight and touch the tops, pointing away from you. The other fingers are bent and touch at the two upper phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and meet at the tops.

       
       
       
       
       
    • Concentrate on the Third Eye Chakra and what it stands for, a little above the center of the two eyebrows.
       
    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound "OM" or "AUM."
       
    • All this time, relaxation of the body should come a bit naturally, and continue to think of the chakra, it's meaning, and how it does or should affect your life.
       
    • Keep doing this until the same "clean" feeling seems to come back or intensify.
       
     
  8.  
    Open the Crown Chakra (pink). This is the seventh and most spiritual chakra. It encircles a being's wisdom and being one with the universe. When this chakra is open, prejudice disappears from your To Do list, and you seem to become more aware of the world and it's connection to yourself. If it's under-active: you tend to not be very spiritual, and may be quite rigid in your thoughts. If it's over-active: you tend to intellectualize things all the time. Spirituality seems to come first in your mind, and if you are really over-active, you may even ignore your bodily needs (food, water, shelter).
    • Sit cross-legged.
       
    • Lay your hand before your stomach. Let the little fingers point up and away from you, touching at their tops, and cross the rest of the fingers with the left thumb underneath the right.

       
       
       
       
       
    • Concentrate on the Crown Chakra and what it stands for, at the very top of your head.
       
    • Silently, but clearly, chant the sound "NG" (yes, this chant is as hard as it looks).
       
    • All this time, your body should now be totally relaxed, and your mind should be at peace. However, do not stop concentrating on the Crown Chakra.
       
    • This meditation is the longest, and should take no less than ten minutes.
       
    • WARNING: don't use this meditation for the Crown Chakra if your Root Chakra is not strong or open. Before dealing with this last chakra, you need a strong "foundation" first, which the Root exercises will present to you. 

    • How to Heal Using Chakra


      Different chakras stand for different areas of the body, and can disfunction in different ways. Feelings, thoughts, traumas, and even illnesses of the body can lodge in the chakras, impeding healthy energy flow. The following approaches may be helpful in connecting with the chakras and heal both illnesses and emotional blockages.

      Steps

      1.  
        Root Chakra.
         
        • Warning Signals: Fatigue, disagreements with family members, disorientation due to lack of grounding.
           
        • To Strengthen the Energy of this Chakra: Visualize a molten lava flow beneath you, or the image of your feet and body growing tree roots that extend deep into the earth. Since this chakra corresponds with issues with one’s family of origin (“root”), resolving these deep emotions can heal the first chakra.
           
         
      2.  
        Sacral Chakra.
        • Warning Signals: Sexual disfunction, hormonal imbalance, lack of creativity.
           
        • To Strengthen the Energy of this Chakra: The second chakra relates to a person’s sexuality and creativity and is connected with the womb. Any creative or sexual outlet has the potential to engage this chakra - but only if such an activity aligns with a person’s genuine self.
           
         
      3.  
        Solar Plexus Chakra.
        • Warning Signals: Digestive system upset, weakness in “core” muscles, low immunity, low self-esteem.
           
        • To Strengthen the Energy of this Chakra: The energies of the solar plexus chakra invoke the relationship with the self and concepts of individual identity. Blockages in this chakra are very common, and can usually only be alleviated by reassessing personal choices and life directions. It is helpful to take time and space to nourish – and to uncover and accept - the real self.
           
         
      4.  
        Heart Chakra.
        • Warning Signals: High or low blood pressure, cardiac symptoms, anger, numbness, fear of love.
           
        • To Strengthen the Energy of this Chakra: The heart chakra is the center of emotions. Strengthening this chakra requires willingness to experience life’s emotional spectrum: love and loss, pain and joy. Visualizing a bright white light in the center of the chest and allowing it to expand slowly may help to awaken this chakra and soothe feelings of hurt. It can also be helpful to write a journal or speak to a trusted friend.
           
         
      5.  
        Throat Chakra.
        • Warning Signals: Hyper- or hypothyroid (over- or under-active thyroid gland), frustration, fear or inability to express oneself.
           
        • To Strengthen the Energy of this Chakra: Sing, dance, write, speak – express and emote! This chakra is cleared by genuine, open expression of truth. It is strengthened by standing up for personal beliefs and supporting other people, ideologies, or groups–- but mostly, by speaking up for number one.
           
         
      6.  
        Brow Chakra.
        • Warning Signals: Headaches, lack of insight, feeling lost, lack of psychic intuitiveness.
           
        • To Strengthen the Energy of this Chakra: It may be helpful to call this chakra by its other name and visualise a “third eye” in the middle of the forehead, looking around with keen observation and insight. Tapping a point in the middle of the brow also helps. So can taking the pressure off and exercising patience. Overthinking congests the brow chakra – so don't think.
           
         
      7.  
        Crown Chakra.
        • Warning Signals: Headaches, spaciness/brain fog, fear, disconnection, lack of trust/hope/faith.
           
        • To Strengthen the Energy of this Chakra: The crown chakra represents connection to the divine in all its forms, as well as the reality that all is energy and there is no form. Imagine a ball of glowing white energy coming down and enveloping the top of the head, opening and healing the crown chakra. Pull the energy down as a protective shield around the body. Talking – out loud or internally – to the higher self, goddess, god, guardian angels or spirit guides can also help.
