To activate the sacral chakra, sit on your knees with your back straight and keep your hands in your lap with your palms facing up. Start breathing gently and focus on the Sacral Chakra, in the lower abdomen, about an inch or two below the navel with a “VAM” singing sound. Continue to do this until you are completely relaxed. The chakras are, in fact, the key points in Eastern philosophies, since they are very important energy centers in our body.
My work as a Shamanic Reiki Master is based on the 7 chakras, their cleansing and awakening. In my ceremonies I will work mainly in these energy centers. chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel, disc or circle. The Chakras are our vital points and represent the energy centers of our body that have the task of absorbing our vital energy (prana) and redistributing it.
Our energy flows through our Chakras. According to Reiki, in humans there are about one hundred vital points (the chakras, in fact) located between the vital body and the physical body, whose activation allows the acquisition of certain physical and extrasensory abilities, achieving inner peace and finally achieving the awakening of consciousness. The Chakras would then join the different bodies of man (astral, mental, causal,. But within this group are the 7 basic or main chakras that are distributed from the lower part of the spine, where is the Kundalini (entangled energy in the shape of a snake, which must be awakened) to the highest part of the head.
Energy flows through these channels with upward and downward movements, while forming a kind of spiral, which rotates like a wheel. Each lotus representing a Chakra also has a different number of petals and a different color and contains different elements, such as a mantra, a letter of the Sanskrit alphabet on the petals or a symbol with a particular meaning. Chakras are fundamental points in our body because they are strong energy centers that connect the various bodies and the psyche. When the Chakras are open, energy can flow freely, with positive effects for both mind and body.
But when they close, energy can no longer flow, forming a blockage that causes negative repercussions on all levels, both physical and psycho-emotional. For this reason, it is very important that these energy vortices remain open and I will soon explain how to do this. In the following, I will describe each of the 7 main chakras with some of their most commonly used meanings and characteristics, as well as some diseases and psychological illnesses that could be caused by the maldevelopment of each chakra. Muladhara - Earth Chakras or Root VadHisthana - Water Chakra or SacroAnipura - Solar Plexus Chakra or Fire ChakraAnahata - Heart ChakraVisHuddha - Throat Chakra or Ajna Chakra - Light or Third Eye ChakraSaharara - Crown Chakra These energy centers have the task of receiving energy and redistributing go to through the nadis, a kind of channels connected to the spine that have the task of transporting energy in the rest of the body.
Therefore, our goal will always be to maintain the correct opening of our chakras, in a balanced way, so that energy can flow smoothly without energy blockages (chakras closed) or an energy overload (chakras too open). Since the chakras are connected to the nerve ganglia and endocrine glands, the closure of the chakras and the resulting energy blockage can cause a state of internal crisis and psychophysical discomfort, as well as the appearance of pathologies in the organs connected to those glands. When a chakra awakens and then opens, we achieve greater self-awareness and a development of precise psychophysical benefits. In addition, chakras are not disrelated, but have a strong influence on each other, especially with regard to chakras close to each other.
This means that the opening or closing of a chakra can also have a positive or negative effect on adjacent chakras. Later, when we describe the individual chakras one by one, I will also give you examples of whether one or more of your chakras are out of balance. By realigning the chakras, you will also achieve a balance in your body, so that your mind and body can live in unison, with all the benefits and positive effects that come with it. This chakra is located at the base of the spine, in the perineum.
It is the chakra that is connected to the legs and, therefore, is a symbol of the earth and of everything that is solid and stable. For this reason, it is also the chakra of all the hardest parts of the body, such as nails, bones and teeth. In fact, it is essential to have solid roots on which to base our entire lives, just as the roots for the survival of a tree or the foundations for building a solid house are fundamental. When the first chakra is blocked, we may feel lost, apathetic, distrustful and not confident in ourselves.
We will never feel satisfied in one place and we will tend to change houses or countries often. When it is too open, opposing feelings are unleashed, such as a strong attachment to material goods and the past, without being able to live in the present moment. We oppose change and develop a total lack of fear or excessive fear, which can lead to very risky situations or an inability to enjoy the beauty of life. To balance the chakras you never have to pretend to be what you are not.
For example, you don't have to pretend that you're happy to align it, but on the contrary, if you manage to rebalance it, you'll start to feel happy. Practice yoga positions that encourage your contact with the earth, such as Vrksasana, the tree position or Tadasana, the mountain position. Sit on the floor with your legs crossed and your back straight. Now visualize the roots that start in your body and go deep into the ground.
As the roots sink, they will carry with them all the negative energies you have accumulated. When you feel ready, call back to the roots, which will return together with the positive energy of the earth. To help you stay focused, you can also listen to the LAM mantra, the mantra corresponding to the first chakra, which you can find in the following video. You can also open this chakra by walking (for example,.
Experience walking (meditation), doing aerobic exercises, flexing the trunk until you touch your toes while sitting, doing dance or dance exercises, jumping in place, doing exercises that increase self-confidence, practice yoga, etc. Continuing the upward journey of the kundalini, the second chakra we find is the splenic chakra or water chakra. Unlike the first, which indicates stability, this chakra is associated with liquids and, therefore, with loosening, with flow, with the capacity to change. The splenic or orange chakra is related to the sexual organs, the reproductive system and the lumbar plexus.
Physically, problems and pathologies can occur in the lower abdomen, such as kidney stones and dysfunctions of the reproductive system and menstrual cycle, as well as fluid flow, such as the circulatory system or bladder. Other consequences of malfunctioning splenic chakras are sexual repression, fear of pleasure, contempt for sex and energy blockages that limit the expression of one's personality. If the second chakra is too open, there is an immediate but ephemeral search for pleasure and satisfaction, developing emotional addictions or addictions related to food, alcohol, drugs or sex. Reiki practice will help you to know and manage your emotions.
Breathing is also very important for rebalancing the splenic chakra. Like a fluid, in fact, you'll need to be able to let the air you breathe through your entire body flow. Listening to this mantra during practice and meditation will help you rebalance the second chakra. To activate this chakra you can also engage in some exercises such as swimming, taking long baths, showers, some relaxation in a jacuzzi, or even dancing or dancing that involves movements and rotations of the pelvis, closely related to sexual intercourse.
The third chakra, the solar or fire chakra, is located in the solar plexus, the part of the abdomen that lies between the diaphragm and the navel, is associated with the color yellow and involves different parts of the body, such as the skin, muscular system, stomach, liver, large intestine and glands and organs at the level of the solar plexus. It is also associated with the eyes, eyesight and muscles of the face. If the first chakra is connected to stability and the second to flow, the third chakra is that of the union of these two elements, namely light, energy, heat, and when it is well balanced we feel energetic, self-confident, strong and self-controlled. It is connected to the digestive system and digestion, which devours food, just as fire devours what it finds in its path.
When the third chakra is out of balance, we can see many negative symptoms, both physical and mental, especially related to our safety and our digestive system. When you are too closed, in fact, we notice increased insecurity, low self-esteem, introversion and a strong sense of inadequacy in all situations. On a physical level, however, problems arise such as liver disorders, nausea, ulcers, gastritis, difficulty digesting and celiac disease. Problems can also appear when this chakra is too open, which makes a person seem very arrogant, aggressive, too confident, constantly seeking power and always feeling the need to celebrate themselves to hide their defeats and insecurities.
To rebalance the Manipura chakra you can practice Reiki and all the yoga positions that involve the abdomen, such as the Navasana, the position of the boat, or the Parivrtta Trikonasana, the position of the turned triangle. You can choose to do meditation using the Ram mantra, which is found in the video below and which is the mantra of the third chakra, or opt for a guided meditation. You can also open this chakra by running, relieving tension, changing boring habits, breaking routines and doing arch exercises, such as the 5 Tibetan rites (you can find many videos on YouTube). The heart chakra is the most central chakra.
It unites the higher and more spiritual chakras, which represent elements that are in the air, with the lower chakras, more material, which represent elements that are in the ground. The fourth chakra is closely related to the heart, circulatory system, lungs, heart plexus, the entire chest area and breathing. It is associated with the color green. Physically, air can enter our lungs in a fluid, oxygen-laden form, which is transported to the rest of the body by a functioning circulatory system.
Other consequences of heart chakra malfunction are inability to love, respiratory and heart disease, selfishness, disconnection and isolation. The asanas that help to reopen the fourth chakra are all those in which the chest is the protagonist, such as Anahatasana or Dhanurasana, and all breathing techniques, such as Pranayama. As always, Reiki can help activate and balance this chakra. You can also focus on listening to the Yam mantra, the mantra linked to the fourth chakra, while you practice or meditate.
To open this chakra, you can also do full-breathing exercises that involve large openings in the chest, help people every day, and let go of hate. The Vishuddha chakra is located right at the base of the throat and is connected to communication, both with others and with ourselves, and with the emotions that result. It controls the neck, throat, hands and arms, and is associated with bronchial or cervical plexus. The color of this chakra is light blue and symbolizes transparency.
When this chakra is open, in fact, you can express yourself clearly and transparently, with touch, without offending. Your voice is calm and relaxed, you know how to listen to others and you always manage to express what you think and let yourself go. The opening of the fourth chakra also brings great creativity, which is a very powerful way of expressing yourself. Our social relationships are pleasant and relaxed, we take an intense interest in others with understanding and without judgment.
All this leads to a situation of deep discomfort that, in the long run, can cause us to get so close in ourselves that we don't want or even fear being together with other people. Needless to say, our social relationships will inevitably disintegrate. Even on a physical level we can find problems, first of all in the thyroid, but also in the breathing and related organs. Diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, mouth ulcers, speech disorders, but also ear pain will appear.
When the chakra is too open and works too much, we become logoreic and never listen to what others tell us. However, what we say is not what we really think, but rather that our conversations will be based on lies and manipulations. When the fifth chakra is out of balance, what we need to do is bring out our creativity and learn to appreciate silence and listening. You can practice Reiki or even yoga asanas that affect the neck and shoulders, such as Matsyasana, also called the fish position.
I also recommend that you do meditation, focusing deeply on your breathing, perhaps listening to the mantra of Vishuddha, the HAM, which you can listen to in the following video. Any other methods to activate the throat chakra? With rotations and movements of the neck, shout everything you hear in a quiet place, do vocal exercises, do singing exercises and pronounce mantras in a repetitive and systematic way. The third eye chakra is located in the head, between the eyebrows, and is the symbol of intuition and sight beyond appearances and even beyond reality itself. It is inevitably connected to the eyes, but also to the forehead, temples, brain and spinal cord.
In this chakra, all opposites and all duality are connected, such as masculine and feminine, reason and intuition, form and substance, body and mind, good and bad. And the third eye sees what exists beyond these concepts, dissolving duality to get to see true reality. We see the world for what it is, in its energy and spirituality, wisely and without prejudice. We can understand the essence of what surrounds us, see beyond what we physically see with our eyes.
When Ajna freezes, we become selfish, cynical, materialistic, cold and calculating. We only trust what we see with our eyes and we can no longer perceive what exists beyond. We can no longer dream or plan for our future, we become insensitive and detached, without the ability to stay focused on something for a long time. To rebalance the third eye chakra, meditation is very important.
Through meditation we can communicate with ourselves and with the energy that surrounds us. Even the practice of Reiki, without a doubt, brings you closer to this goal. It's also important to practice pranayama to learn how to benefit from our breathing. To open the sixth chakra we can do it by listening to the mantra of the sixth chakra, the om.
In addition to Reiki and meditation, to rebalance the sixth chakra you can do activities that stimulate creativity or immerse yourself in nature, paying attention to the small details of life and contemplating the beauty that surrounds us every day, such as a sunset or a starry sky. Details that make our existence so beautiful, deep and worth living. To activate the third eye chakra you can also do guided meditations, visualize simple geometric shapes, massage the temples and eye contour in a circular way, and massage the eyes with your eyelids closed with your fingertips. The Sahasrara is the chakra of liberation, knowledge and bliss.
It is not found in the physical body, but above, above the head. It is linked to the energy of the universe, to the connection with the Divine, to the Enlightenment. Whoever reaches this stage will have understood the mysteries of life, including birth and death. This chakra is represented by a lotus with a thousand petals, a symbolic number that indicates infinity.
Its energy will dissolve your Ego into the Whole and transform us, in turn, into energy. The opening of the seventh chakra will give you wisdom, well-being, peace of mind and happiness. You will be patient, understanding and compassionate. But what happens if the flow of energy from the seventh chakra is blocked? When the flow is blocked, we will not be able to cultivate our spirituality.
Then we will feel apathetic, despondent, reluctant to live, depressed. If it is too open, then we will be attached to unimportant things, material goods and power, overwhelmed by ignorance and dissatisfaction, and we will always feel anxious, arrogant, impatient. Even on the physical plane we will be affected and suffer exhaustion, mental confusion, depression, apathy to the point of ending in psychosis and schizophrenia. Other problems with this chakra can cause the need to dominate and manipulate others to get what one wants, the fact of always wanting to be right, harassment, rigidity in the way of thinking, a high ego, materialistic values, difficulty concentrating, difficulty thinking independently.
In addition to Reiki sessions, yoga positions that help us rebalance the seventh chakra are those that stimulate the upper part of the head, such as Sirsasana or Sasangasana, but also Padmasana, also called the lotus position, which will help you find concentration for meditation, perhaps listening to mantra Ah. Chakra Essences are deep-acting combinations focused on helping you open and rebalance your most important chakra points. There are ten essences, one for each of the seven main points of the chakra and three important points of the minor chakra. These powerful essences offer you the opportunity to work at a deep level with the problems and patterns of each of the chakras that most affect your mental and emotional well-being.
We have reached the end of this long and fascinating journey to discover the 7 chakras. Together we saw what chakras are, how they work and why it is so important that they are always open and aligned. Maintaining the balance of the 7 chakras will help you live a full and serene life, obtaining a perfect relationship with yourself and with the people around you, developing knowledge, beauty and serenity, until you achieve deep peace and harmony with the energy of the universe. I am curious about your impressions and experiences.
Have you already practiced Reiki and meditation to realign your chakras? What results have you achieved? I am Alessandro Ferrari, shamanic master of Reiki, creator of Reiki Shamanic Healing. Every day I work on myself to develop the Consciousness of the present moment, seeking and sharing Light and Love in the world. I can help you through the connection with the sacred spirits of Rapé and Sananga, and with the powerful knowledge of the oracles of the Amazon rainforest. Certain healers can affect the physical counterparts of the chakras with external aids or with psychic energies, which can be useful in treating various physical or emotional imbalances, but true awakening of the chakras cannot be achieved by an external person.
No external person, machine or object can open your chakras to you at their level of yogic functioning. The use of certain diets, herbs, or gems can be helpful in paving the way for chakra opening, but these are only external supports. They cannot open the chakras any more than the asanas themselves can produce meditation. A guru, or someone in whom inner consciousness is awakened, can provide guidance or initiatory experience, but they cannot do the work for us.
True opening of the chakras requires the expert practice of yoga, which can take years, sometimes lifetimes, to achieve and which is derived from deeper yogic practices of pranayama, mantra and meditation, along with a disciplined lifestyle. The beach is my happy place and here are 3 science-backed reasons why it should be yours too. However, today, chakras, like yoga, are defined in physical terms, which obscures their true purpose and function. Focus on the third eye chakra, which is located on your forehead, slightly above the center of both eyebrows, and sing the “OM” sound.
Open chakra signs include corresponding control over and detachment from physical elements and organs. If you can't do a Reiki session, there are several exercises, positions and visualizations you can do to unlock the first chakra. In addition, there are many subtle energies that exist between ordinary physical consciousness and the true awakening of the kundalini and chakras. However, traditional yoga considers that chakras influence physical functions only secondarily.
This is the seventh chakra (the highest chakra is located at the top of the head), which is used to connect with pure consciousness. . .
