    Chakra System and Anatomy. Humans have energy centers throughout the body that are connected to major organs and glands, which regulate other parts of the body. Each of these energy centers is called chakra (Sanskrit word meaning wheel).

    How does the Chakra system work? A chakra is similar to a vortex rotating in a circular motion forming a void in the center that attracts whatever is in your particular vibrational level.

    It is said that our body contains hundreds of key chakras for functioning. These “spinning wheels” attract encoded information from our environment. The encoded information may be of any type: a color vibration, an ultraviolet radiation, a radio wave or microwave, or even the aura of another person. In essence, our chakras are affected by the environment, this includes people who are around us (that’s is why their moods can affect us). In addition, our chakra system also radiates a certain vibrational energy.

    It is said that we have seven major chakras and each of these is connected to our being through different levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. On the physical level, each chakra governs a main organ or gland and connects it to other parts of the body which resonate at the same frequency.

    The Chakra System in our Body

    Each system in our anatomy, such as a system of organs and glands, is connected to a chakra and each chakra is connected to a vibrational frequency of color. For example, the heart chakra governs the thymus gland but is also in charge of the correct functioning of the heart, lungs, bronchi system, lymph nodes, secondary circulatory system, immune system, like the arm and hands. This chakra resonates with the color green.

    The main seven chakras are aligned along the spine. When an interference at any level occurs, this is manifested in the level of vitality of that chakra. Moreover, each of the seven major chakras has its own intelligence center, which means that each chakra is associated not only with our physical health, but also controls aspects of our emotional, mental and belief systems.

    The names of the seven major chakras and teachers organs that each rule is as follows:

    When part of a chakra is out of sync it may affect its other parts and possibly their neighbor chakras, which means the entire chakra system works as a unit. If a chakra is out of balance, usually it means you are too active or too inactive, or possibly congested or blocked. When this happens, you can usually feel it as a mental, emotional and / or physical plane manifesting it as a disease. To help balance your chakra system, either on an emotional, intellectual, physical or spiritual level – it is important to introduce vibrations that resonate with the same frequency of the affected chakra(s).

    Chakra System Anatomy Blockages

    When we experience an incident in our lives to which we respond with fear, anger, anxiety, etc., these emotions become stagnate energy patterns in our auric field. If these low vibration and emotions are not released from our field naturally, they will eventually migrate to different wheels in our chakra system. For example, an emotional experience related to family matters that have not been clarified, ends up migrating to our root chakra. Once these energies come to the root chakra, this chakra will be partially or completely blocked; due to the low vibration and mass that charge these energies. The severity of a blocked chakra is directly related to the number and intensity of these low frequency vibration experiences one has had in life. Each chakra stores issues of different emotional nature.

    When the chakras are completely blocked, the universal energy can not nourish or sustain the physical body. And since the universal energy is the life force, a blockage in the chakra system will eventually lead to imbalance and disease in the physical body.

    When our chakras are in a harmonious state of flow with the universal energies, our lives will reflect a balanced state of being; allowing us to enjoy being free from any imbalance or emotional, mental, physical or spiritual disease.

    Chakra System and Anatomy

    The life force of the human energy system directs energy through the layers of subtle energy bodies. It is the living of us moving to our limbs, and allowing us to feel emotions and make use of our free will. It encourages our minds and keeps us from stress. The life force exists in all life forms and is the same whether you are a human being, an animal or a plant. It differs in form, but it is the same force in all living beings. It is what sets apart life and non-life.

    This force directs our physical energies, using the chakra system as an energy driver to move through the physical body. The energy moves through the chakras, stimulating the flow of hormones in the endocrine glands. These, in turn, affect the biochemistry of the body and the speed at which the body uses energy. On the physical level this is what we call metabolism.

    When our body stores an excess of heat or liquids, it affects how the body processes energy. Excessive heat, which can be unexpressed anger, causes inflammation of blood. This stagnation of fluid in the body causes excessive mucus and catarrh and can lead to tumors if left untreated.

    Our physical bodies are energy maps. The body has its own mind, but acts as a mirror of the higher mind, showing us when there is an imbalance. We have to read the body as a map of emotional distress to understand what is happening at a deep level. This shows when there is constriction, or when there is not enough energy in the system.

    The body uses energy that is released by the chakras. If the chakra system is congested, the energy filtering becomes slow. This can be experienced as coldness and a lack of vital energy. You may feel tired, moody, or constipated. Too much energy in the chakra appears as heat, irritability, and stagnation.
