Chakra Energy
by Linda Mackenzie, C.H.T., Ph.D.(c)

The Human Body exists on 3 levels:
Level 1: The Material (dhatus) Level
which includes the physical body, blood, fat, flesh, bone, clay, fluids, air, earth, water, fire and
void space (akasha)

Level 2: The Subtle Level
which consists of prana (vital life force energy), the mind, intellect, ego and the feeling of self.
(please note that prana connects the material and subtle level.)

Level 3: The Spirit Level
which connects to all animate and inanimate energy within the material and subtle levels AND
to all animate and inanimate energy outside the body including collective, earth and universal. The spiritual level also has access to Divine (God) energy.

Chakras & Auras: The Monitoring Systems
To protect an individual's mind-body-spirit on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level there are 7 major chakras within the body (although some claim there are an additional 6 which reside outside the body starting over the Crown Chakra) and 7 auric (aura) levels that surround the body. Chakra energy is electrochemical and auric (aura) energy is electromagnetic.

The seven auric fields are the atmospheres arising from and surrounding the body. These fields are the interpreters and transmitters of consciousness energy. This consciousness energy resides in an individual's mind-body-spirit, as well as, in the external collective, earth, universal and Divine (God) energies in which the individual comes in contact with.

Chakra 101
The word chakra actually means "a wheel, disc or any arrangement in circular form or organization" and indicates movement. The major chakras are the esoteric energy centers of the body. Chakras
are the psychic transformation centers of the body, otherwise known as psychophysical energy.

Psychophysical (chakra) energy is electrochemical in nature and is accessed through Prana (vital life force) energy. Divine Energy (which I prefer to call God, but whatever you want to call it is fine with me) creates Prana and the life, mind and matter of every animate and inanimate object.
Divine Energy operates through, but is not limited to, Pranic energy. In the case of a human being, Divine Energy operates within, without and through all the energy levels which include: the individual mind-body-spirit energy level, animate and inanimate collective energy level, animate-etheric-collective earth energy level and animate-etheric-collective Universal energy level.

Prana energy operates in the body as an open system, which is not limited to the body's physical, mental or emotional systems. As we breathe, prana is drawn into the nose and is distributed into the body by specific unseen channels called Nadis.

There is the Main Nadi System which connects the 7 major chakras to each other and 72,000 other different Nadis. The 72,000 Nadis are divided into 2 different types of channels:
1) The Invisible Channels which is the channel of the mind and self.
2) The Visible Channel which includes the nerves, muscles, arteries, veins, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system and the acupuncture meridians in the body which work with the central, autonomic, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

The chakras work with both visible and invisible energies. These chakras are situated throughout the body as mini whirling vortices of energy.

The 7 Major Chakras reside and work in the cerebrospinal (brain-spine) system inside the spinal column and are connected to the Main Nadi System (Shushumna). This is where the chakras control the functioning of the entire human body.

The Shushumna (Main Nadi System) is centrally located and is the only Nadi (channel) that passes through the spinal column. This Main Nadi System is divided into 3 Nadis of which one channel resides in the spinal column and two channels reside in the brain. The Shushumna usually remains dormant when other Nadis are active and subsequently flows when the other Nadis are restrained. This happens when we breathe in prana through both nostrils. We only breathe through both nostrils about ten breaths in every hour, at dawn and at dusk. The other times, when we breathe, we are usually breathing from only one nostril or the other, but not both at the same time.

Chakra Movement
Chakras are active at all times. They are influenced by the energy elements of water, fire, earth, air and void space (akasha). These energy elements produce different physical, emotional and psychic states. The elements move inside the body through the breath and produce chemical changes via the endocrine glands, which mix these secretions directly into the blood instantaneously.

Chakras and the 5 Senses
The first 5 major chakras, located in the spinal cord, are the building blocks of psychophysical existence for the five senses: feeling, taste, sound, smell, and touch. Chakras have a definite relationship to the physical body and its functions. Each of the first five major chakras are connected to a specific sense organ and stores psychophysical energy, which then flows to all 7 major chakras from one chakra to another when activated by the breath.

Kundalini Shakti Energy
Consciousness controls all the forces operating within each chakra. As you grow through awareness chakras become aligned more to our spiritual purpose and our oneness of all things. Kundalini Shakti Energy means "coiled power". It interacts with Universal Energy by using matter to access consciousness energy with the ultimate goal being to reach Divine (God) energy. With extended use and practice of Kundalini Shakti energy, it is said that you can pass through the three knots in the Shushumna that represent feeling, knowing and doing and ultimately reach Supreme Consciousness also known as Supreme Truth. Kundalini Shakti energy is the only energy that pierces the chakras and is the basic force of the body that can connect to Divine (God) Energy.

Chakras & Healing Stones
Since the beginning of civilization people have used gemstones energetically to help aid healing. Placing the appropriate gemstone on an appropriate chakra may help support and improve physical, emotional and spiritual symptoms of dis-ease and illness.

More Chakra Information...
To give you more information, I have pulled together the following chakra charts. The information was derived from many cultures, over many centuries and from personal experience. These days to correctly ascertain the truth about chakras (or any subject) one must get as close to the source of information as possible. Then interpret the truth of the information with their own intuitive ability and then verify their information source with at least three other reliable sources.
