Esoteric Healing Chakras and Glands II
On a physical level, chakras are associated with the major nerve plexuses and endocrine glands in the body. Endocrine system is a system of. The sacral chakra governs our relationships to each other, our concepts of beauty and attractiveness. Our adrenal glands secrete hundreds of hormones and. Each chakra's connection to a key endocrine gland and nervous system in your body means that an energy deficiency could lead to serious physical.
All of our cells emit energy in different ways, and different cells will emit different kinds of energy depending on where they are located within the body and what their job is. These are called the chakras.
Energy, Chakras and the Endocrine System
Chakra energy spins in a clockwise direction as it moves the energy of our body out into the field around usand it spins counterclockwise to pull energy from our external world and the people in it into our body.
It is the frequency state of our chakras that determines the direction our energy will flow as they either draw energy into our body or release it outward. Are they actual little wheels spinning in the seven key centers of our body? They are not made up of matter; they are energetic. It is a valid question, and one that science has not yet found a hard answer for.
It was a bit of a leap for me as a science-minded person to make when I began learning about chakra healing. But while the concept of chakras was new for me and still manages to evade scientific proofit has existed for thousands of years and across cultures. I do believe that we will get there eventually, but until then we can only rely on our experience and the teachings of others.
Free Enlightened Living Course: For instance, the one between the eyes sits around our visual center, of course, but also the frontal lobe of our brain. That location is the epicenter of our decision-making, planning, and orientation. There is so much energy required in that region of our body that it makes perfect sense for it to have an energy outlet sitting in a handy location. The same goes for the heart chakra, which we know contains so much energy that it has its own force field and emits so much electromagnetic energy that it can be measured from several feet away.
The chakras can be open or closed, overactive or underactive, depending on how well energy is able to flow through them. And that flow is determined by the open or constricted state of, you guessed it, your body and energy body. Yes, each chakra has a color associated with it.
Visible light gives off electromagnetic waves, vibrating across the field through time and space. Depending on how quickly the waves are vibrating, our eyes will pick them up as different colors. Red, for instance, is a lower-frequency wave that looks like a slow roll; purple, on the other hand, is a high-frequency wave with sharp peaks and valleys. In fact, we can measure a wave in nanometers and then determine its energetic strength!
The chakra energies, vibrating at their different frequencies, likewise have different colors. How Does a Chakra Work, Anyway? A chakra may be a wheel or a vortex, but it operates like a ball of energy interpenetrating the physical body.

They are aspects of consciousness, and they interact with the physical and energetic body through two major vehicles, the endocrine system and the nervous system. Each of the seven chakras is associated with one of the nine endocrine glands, and also with a particular group of nerves, called a plexusmaking them important elements in healing.
Chakras and Glands
Thus, each chakra corresponds with particular parts of the body and particular functions within the body controlled by that plexus or that endocrine gland, which is they key to understanding how chakra healing methods work. The chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also particular parts of your consciousness. Your consciousness, how you perceive your reality, represents everything it is possible for you to experience.
All of your senses, perceptions, and possible states of awareness can be divided into seven categories, and each of these categories can be associated with a particular chakra.
Understanding The Role Of Chakras And Glands In The Human Body
Where you feel the stress depends therefore on why you feel the stress. When you are hurt in a relationship, you feel it in your heart. When you are nervous, your legs tremble and your bladder becomes weak. When there is tension in a particular part of your consciousness, and therefore in the chakra associated with that part of your consciousness, the tension is detected by the nerves of the plexus associated with that chakra and communicated to the parts of the physical and energy body controlled by that plexus.
When the tension continues over a period of time or reaches a particular degree of intensity, it creates a symptom on the physical level and requires chakra healing to resolve. Again, the symptom serves to communicate to you through your body what you have been doing to yourself in your consciousness. In order to reverse it, physical change may be required first as well as chakra healing practices.
When we change something about our way of being, we can release the stress that has been creating the symptom sand then we can return to our natural state of balance and health. Opening and Closing Chakras The opening and closing of our chakras works like an energetic defense system. A negative experience and the low-frequency energy that comes with it can cause the associated chakra energy to close in order to block that energy out.
Similarly, if we are clinging to a low-calibrating feeling like blame, prolonging the emotion because we refuse to deal with or move it, we close off the chakra the channel through which the energy would otherwise escapewhich then requires special chakra healing techniques like the Fire Breath exercise outlined below. I believe we feel that constriction as the tightness that comes into our mind and body when we are stressed. As we open and heal our chakras, energy is able to flow freely once again and things return to normal.
I often wonder if the heartbreak I experienced when my mother died suppressed my immune system enough—along with all the negative thinking, grief, and sugar cancer cells have far more glucose receptors than normal cells —to allow the cancer cells that were already in my body to grow. Balance Is Key in Chakra Healing No one chakra is better than the others or more important than any other in the process of energy body balancing and chakra healing.
Ideally, all seven of your chakras are healed, balancedopen, and humming, allowing energy to flow into and out of your body. The amazing thing is that your body is going to find a way to move energy in and out unless, of course, your ego self is telling it to hold on to something.
Watch out for amazing synchronicities right after you do this.
Historical Perspective on Chakras and Glands It seems that no direct correlation was made by Indian traditional chakra systems between glands and the chakras. However, modern literature from both the Western and Eastern cultures highlights the connection between each the primary chakras and the endocrine and nervous systems, as well as organs. Leadbeater, one of the first to shed light on the chakra system in the West, and Alice Bailey, theosophist and teacher of esoteric knowledge at the beginning of the 20th century, both started outlining the connections between the chakras and the biology of the human body.
The 7 Chakras and Endocrine Glands Each of the chakras in the body is paired with an endocrine gland and governs its function. So before we go any further, here are each of the chakras, their corresponding gland, and their function: Root chakra 1st — Reproductive glands testes in men; ovaries in women ; controls sexual development and secretes sex hormones.
Sacral chakra 2nd — Adrenal glands; regulates the immune system and metabolism. Solar Plexus chakra 3rd — Pancreas; regulates metabolism. Heart chakra 4th — Thymus gland; regulates the immune system.
Throat chakra 5th — Thyroid gland; regulates body temperature and metabolism. Third Eye chakra 6th — Pituitary gland; produces hormones and governs the function of the previous five glands; sometimes, the pineal gland is linked to the third eye chakra as well as to the crown chakra. Crown chakra 7th — Pineal gland; regulates biological cycles, including sleep. How Chakras and Glands Work Together Disturbances in the subtle energy of the chakras translate into physical manifestation and symptoms who are likely associated with the corresponding glands and organs.
It is not to say that chakras are physical or physiological in nature. They are considered as energy centers that influence our being at many levels, including the physical and biological levels. Whenever one of our energy centers is thrown off balance by a blockage, physical maladies can happen. It is important to remember that chakras function on the same principle as a pendulum.
Chakra balancing is in order. The disturbance is felt either at the level of that specific or the level of another chakra or set of chakras connected to it. For instance, when the throat chakra is blocked you may experience sore throat, neck pain, or laryngitis. Similarly, when the heart chakra is out-of-sorts, high blood pressure and heart-related problems can arise. Examples of Connection Between the Chakra and Glandular Systems Pituitary Gland Chakra There are two chakra glands that serve to regulate overall glandular and biological function: Located between the eyes, this pea-sized gland regulates emotion and intellect and works in partnership with the pineal gland to achieve overall balance.
