Chakras And Nadis
Man, as an energy body has seven main chakras (energy vortexes), which also have the role of sensors, that register even the environment changes. These energy wheels perform a number of functions and serve as a door through which energy passes between the astral and the physical body. Emotions are actually scope of spreading energy frequencies which do not arise in the physical body, even though they cause chemical reactions. They originate in the astral body, the body of emotions, and pass through the chakra, through the eternal twin, to the body.
Each chakra conveys energy vibrating at a certain frequency. Nadis are channels which transmit energy through a tiny energy system. The most important and the most vital are Sushumna, Ida and Pingala. The Chinese and Japanese have a similar system, the doctrine of meridians.
Bioenergy or biomagnetism (universal cosmic energy) is present in every living thing. Every living creature is an energetic being. Encircling each living creature – man, animal, and plants – is a system of interdependent fields. The whole universe is permeated by that field or by biomagnetism. Every emotion, thought, feeling and action can be seen as discharging energy, emanating from local fields a number of oscillations (vibrations). The energy fields of all living beings came from the cosmic energy field that energizes us with the energy and has consciousness.
For a journey in material reality, we need consciousness and physical body. Our senses receive only a small part of the cosmic universal energy field, which consists of four levels. The physical level establishes a connection with other levels through an ethereal duality. This connection is realized from the nervous system via the ethereal duality with universal energy. Emotions are actually the scope of energy spreading which do not arise in the physical body, even though cause chemical reactions there. They originate in the astral body, the body of emotions, and pass across the chakra, through the eternal twin, to the body. Each chakra conveys energy vibrating at a certain frequency.
Man as an energy body has seven main chakras (energy vortexes), which also have the role of sensors, and register changes in the environment. So we feel the emotions of other people through them. These energy wheels perform a number of functions and serve as the door through which energy passes between the astral and the physical body. The fine energy system is made up of the energy that is channeled by three-level subtle bodies, which are energy storage and are surrounded by four parts of the hara. The seven energy chakras are located along the spine column up to the head, and they are connected to the nadi. Chakras converter of universal energy in thoughts, emotions and senses known to man. Also, each chakra is associated with an endocrine gland (internal gland).
Description Of The Chakras
- The first chakra is Muladhara – placed in the root of the spine and radiates bright red color. It relates to the Earth, and warns of the importance of the relationship between man and the environment. It also associates with the adrenal gland and controls the spine and kidneys.
- The second chakra is Swadhendana – it links to the sexual gland and controls the reproduction system and radiates orange color. Swadhendana’s place is little above the genitals.
- The third chakra is Manipura – it is located in the plexus solaris, and corresponds to the glandular pancreas. It turns yellow in color and controls the stomach, liver, gall bladder and nervous system.
- The fourth chakra is Anahata – it is located on the eighth cervical vertebrae opposite the heart and is associated with elements of air and touch. It affects the thyroid gland, controls the heart, blood, nervous and circular system. This chakra radiates green.
- The fifth chakra is Visuddha – begining on the third cervical vertebra and ending in the throat next to Adam’s apple. It glows blue. Matches the thyroid gland, and it manages the bronchial and speech apparatus, lungs and esophagus.
- The sixth chakra is Ajna – located between the eyebrows. Ajna connects with the pituitary gland and is well known to everyone as a third eye. The chakra color is indigo. Ajna controls the lower part of the brain, the left eye, the ears, the nose, and the nervous system.
- The Seventh Chakra is a Sahasrara – it radiates in purple-white color. It is depicted with an epiphyseal gland, and it controls the upper part of the brain and the right eye.
Nadia – Energy Transmitters
There are more channels to transmit energy through an energy system. They are similar to the arteries, since they transfer vital energy from one subtle body to another. Out of tens of thousands more, seventy-two are more important. The most important and the most venerable are sushumna, ida and pingala. The Chinese and Japanese have a similar system, studying the meridians instead.
Sushumna flows through the center of the spine. Starts in the lower vertebrae, and ends in the crown of head. It is also a path of kundalini, a snake-like energy that bundles up in the root of the spine.
Ida and Pingala form the basic nadias and begin from both sides of the first chakra. Ida travels from the left nostril, and pingala from the right. These are important for two reasons. The first reason is that with breathing, they absorb energy from the air and with exhaling they release the toxins. This function compares to blood enriched with oxygen while flowing to the lungs by inhaling and removing harmful substances when exhaling. Another reason for their importance is that they awaken the kundalini energy.
Practical breathing exercise
All eastern systems use the method of Partial or total breathing. Such breathing fills the whole lung with air and allows maximum oxygen and energy accumulation. This way of breathing engulfs the whole lung, all the bronchias and every pulmonary bubble. The diaphragm is maximally engaged, and the inhalation effort is almost negligible.
- Sit on a chair, with fully upright spine, try not to lean your back on. Begin to breathe lightly, first into the lower part of the lungs, pushing the stomach outward and downward. When you fill this part with enough air, continue breathing without any interruption in the middle, then in the upper part of the lung, without lifting the shoulders. While breathing with the upper part of the lungs, abdomen will slightly retract. According to this description of pranic breathing, it seems that the inhalation consists of three separate parts. However, you have to make sure that all three fall into a single equilibrium movement.
- When you have filled your lungs with air, keep it in the lungs for a few seconds. Release lightly and evenly. Practice this exercise three times a day, before taking food for a few minutes, until you get into habit. Of course, the whole process does not have to run perfectly.
- After a few minutes of this breathing, you will feel an increase in your own bioenergy potential, which will be expressed in a form of a nerve titre. If you feel uneasiness or dizziness, make a brief pause.
