Introduction to Body Chakras

Whenever I have tried to read and learn about the Significance of our Samskaras/rituals/routines, always there  has been a mention of empowering and balancing  body chakras. So, to the benefit of all seekers regarding this information on Chakras, I thought of sharing the articles written by Smt.Dr.Manisha who holds a PHD in Metaphysical Science and is a Spritual Counsellor in Mumbai. Her articles can be read on Articles shall be in parts covering all 7 Chakras.

The Body Chakras

They are basically energy vortices along the spinal cord; starting at the last vertebra—coccyx and ending at the crown (head). When we talk of Chakras, we generally talk of the seven major Chakras. These are supposed to have major impact on our well being—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Chakras are wheels of energy that exchange our inner energy with the universal energies. These universal energies are comprised of the energies of nature, celestial energies, our own thoughts, emotions, traumas, and the energies from surroundings.

It is said that for every physical part of our body there is a corresponding Chakra. There are approximately 80,000 Chakras in our body. That means every cell of our body is connected to a Chakra—major, minor, or even at lower levels some way or another. As we learn about Chakras, you’ll notice that every major Chakra corresponds to an endocrine gland of our body.

Imagine these Chakras as a pipe running along the length of your body. When you visualize Chakras; you should be able to see a clear pipe, without any blockages. Such passage will only allow a proper and healthy flow of energy in our body. If there is a blockage, the flow of energy will be disrupted and the blocked energy will manifest in some form of imbalance—physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.

Therefore, one must be very careful about his or her thoughts, emotions, resolving issues, getting over a trauma, and interaction with his or her inner-self, universe, and surroundings.

Chakras- Our Energy Centers
Chakras are energy centers in our body, and hence are vulnerable to attracting energies that may or may not be conducive to one’s growth. What do I mean by this sentence? We have learned some time back that thoughts are energy, and there are other vibrations also in the universe around us. Every thought generates energy in the form of thoughts that follow the first thought, or in some kind of an action. If the very first thought was positive, it is likely to generate other positive thoughts and actions; but if it was not, negative thoughts and actions are generated. We all know that in metaphysics, “Like attracts like.” So if there are positive thoughts, they will attract positive energy; and vice versa.

Energy generated from every thought, every action will end up either opening a Chakra or blocking it. If it is open it will attract more positive energy; and if it is blocked, it goes on attracting negative energy. This negative energy blocks the Chakra further and manifests in the form of various illnesses.

Apart from our own thoughts, Chakras are affected by the thought vibrations of people around us and surroundings. Again, positive vibrations will attract positive vibes, and negative ones—negative vibes. So be cautious of what to think, talk, do, and also watch your company.

Chakras are also affected by feelings—happiness, love, compassion, selflessness, satisfaction, meaning, give and take, ability to forgive and forget and any other positive feeling; and also by negative feelings like—fear, guilt, anxiety, revenge, stress, and any other emotional traumas. Colors too play an important role in Chakras’ health as every Chakra vibrates on a particular frequency. Excessive use of any particular color may influence the health of a Chakra.
