The Power of the Chakras
The following is excerpted from Spiritual Clearings: Sacred Practices to Release Negative Energy and Harmonize Your Life (North Atlantic Books 2009) Chakra Assessments The word chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit. Chakras are the body's subtle energy vortices. They have been identified in many ancient cultures. The first chakra is located at the base of the spine. The second chakra is located in the gonads area below the navel. The third chakra is located in the solar plexus above the navel. The fourth chakra is located a little to the right of the heart area. The fifth chakra is located in the throat area. The sixth chakra is located between the eyebrows, just above the bridge of the nose. The seventh chakra is located at the top of the pineal gland and controls the upper region of the brain. All seven chakras are interdependent and develop gradually after years of yoga and meditation practices. Each chakra nourishes a specific endocrine gland, which energizes different body structures.

The 13 Chakra System | OneHealsOne What Is A Chakra - Chakras are energy centres in our bodies. They are the openings for 'life energy' to flow in and out of our aura. Their function is to nourish and vitalise our physical body and aid awareness to the development of our consciousness. How do we activate the chakras? We can activate our chakras through the breath, through yoga postures, meditation and prayers, through sound and colour, through singing, through visualisation, and through certain kinds of music. Aura We often hear expressions like “she has a nice aura”, or “he has good energy”. Gateways to consciousnessPsychologist Carl Jung called the chakras the "gateways of consciousness".

Healing the Body with Mindfulness of Breathing « Metta Refuge This excerpt from a talk by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh explains how to use mindfulness of breathing to bring loving-kindness to our dear bodies. The physical effect of this can be truly remarkable. As Thây says, “You should really love your body. You should really take care of your body. Mindful breathing, with rest, can do miracles. The First Exercise of Mindful Breathing My dear friends, yesterday I spoke about the first exercise proposed by the Buddha concerning mindful breathing: “Breathing in, I am aware that I am breathing in; breathing out, I am aware that I am breathing out.” We should always start with our physical bodies, because our physical bodies also needs peace, harmony and rest. We should realize a true rest. Animals in the forest, every time they are wounded, know how to rest. Deep relaxation here is one of the methods of resting. The Second Exercise of Mindful Breathing Do not try to prolong the breath; just allow it to be the way it is, naturally. Like this:

Information on Zeal Chakra///by Eileen Brooks, from Messangers of Spirit | WeCycle Wisdom Submitted by Davita Lynne St... on Mon, 11/29/2010 - 08:40 Zeal Point a newly awakened Chakra... This is situated at the back of the neck at the base of the skull, just where there is an indentation. This Chakra works more on a Transpersonal Level, it works at our Soul Level with the Soul Star Chakra which is positioned out and above the Crown Chakra (this is classed as an out of body Chakra, once again most therapists do not work on this level of the Chakra's.) The colour associated with the Zeal Point Chakra is magenta infused with pure white light from the Soul Star Chakra. Many things can cause imbalances at an energetic level. If we push them to the back of our mind, refusing to look at whatever the situation may be, you can guarantee that it will try to resurface at various times in your life. Some of the symptoms people can suffer with an energy block or stagnant energy etc are feeling low in energy, even after sleeping well, feeling spacey or not grounded.

Study shows compassion meditation changes the brain (March 25, 2008) Can we train ourselves to be compassionate? A new study suggests the answer is yes. Cultivating compassion and kindness through meditation affects brain regions that can make a person more empathetic to other peoples' mental states, say researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Published March 25 in the Public Library of Science One, the study was the first to use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to indicate that positive emotions such as loving-kindness and compassion can be learned in the same way as playing a musical instrument or being proficient in a sport. The scans revealed that brain circuits used to detect emotions and feelings were dramatically changed in subjects who had extensive experience practicing compassion meditation. The study was part of the researchers' ongoing investigations with a group of Tibetan monks and lay practitioners who have practiced meditation for a minimum of 10,000 hours.

Your new chakra system In the next stage of your physical body's shifting reality a realm of many vibrant prismatic colours and dancing energy patterns. Your body's chakra system can be viewed as an energy pattern of beautiful colours, circling each of its thirteen major energy centres. Imagine glorious combinations of reds, coral-pinks and vibrant lightblues, red-oranges and pale and day-glow greens, dancing together in marvellous ways. Picture each energy centre working with every other as one. Before we immerse ourselves in the observation of our chakras, let me briefly describe why this is happening to you. Chakras (or your major energy centres) allow your transforming physical body to integrate its spiritual body and to function properly. The first extra centre is at the diaphragm where your body's emotional memory system is currently located. [1] The first chakra (root centre) is located at the base of the abdominal cavity.
