Introduction to Chakras


8chakraThe seven energy centers, or chakras that we are focusing on here include the base, sacral/creative, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow or third eye and crown chakras. We have additional soul level chakras that are explored in our self-study audio programs.
These centers of energy function as valves which regulate the flow of energy through our subtle energy system. Chakras function based on choices we make regarding our responses to circumstances, situations and relationships in our life.
The functional quality of our chakras is dictated by the decisions we make regarding how we think and the way we respond to what we feel.
Chakras are non-physical in the sense that many people are unable to perceive them with their physical eyes. They are rapidly vibrating vortices of light, and elements of consciousness that interface with our energy bodies and are integral parts of our etheric field. Each chakra vibrates to a specific color, and musical note.
Chakras vibrate slightly slower than the aura, but more rapidly than the energy of the physical body, thus they are more dense, or ethereal than the aura, and more ethereal
or less dense than the physical body.
It is through the endocrine and nervous systems that our chakras “communicate” with our physical body.
Each of the seven basic chakras influence the condition of one of the seven endocrine glands, and also with a grouping of nerves known as the plexus. The plexus is divided into three subgroups, the lower, middle and upper nerve plexus.
The lower nerve plexus communicates directly to our reproductive organs.
The middle nerve plexus located in the area of the solar plexus chakra,
controls the functioning of our heart and lungs.
The upper nerve plexus in the brain is the source of all our cognitive abilities as well as our endocrine, neural, and muscular functions.
Therefore, each chakra can be related with specific parts of the body and the functions which are controlled by the associated plexus or endocrine gland.
Each chakra also interfaces with our mental and emotional body, and affects how we think, feel and act.
