When it comes to understanding the energy dynamics of the human body, our ancient Rishis have mapped the main energy centres in the human body but at a subtle level. At the physical level, these chakras connect to our various organs and energise them so that they continue to perform the various autonomic functions they do. Science uses the terminology “involuntary” when it comes to various bodily functions such as peristalsis and digestion. Actually all the impetus is given by these energy centres. Imagine the body as a great energy distribution highway with a powerhouse and various distribution centres carrying out specific tasks. A chakra is in that sense a localized nexus of connection with a certain reach into the systems of the body.
Each of our chakras has a corresponding spectrum of spiritual, emotional and physical attributes associated with them and by addressing each of these chakras with irradiation of Reiki energy for example, we can harmonize and even correct health ailments within the body. This is a working principle in all eastern traditional methods of healing. If our chakras are working perfectly and harmoniously, our personality will be completely integrated and we no longer struggle with our separate selves. The lower chakras are associated with the fundamental needs and emotions, for the energy here vibrates at a lower frequency and is therefore denser in nature. The finer energies of the upper chakras correspond to our higher mental and spiritual inclinations.
For a sizeable portion of humanity, the two chakras that are the most active are the mooladhara and the svadishthana. This is because our visceral actions are mostly inclined towards fulfilling our basic needs of eating, sleeping and mating. When Kundalini is activated, the energy rises from the moodladhara, activates all the chakras and puts them in full throttle. This is what makes a human into a superhuman. There are specific powers and qualities attributed to the activation of each chakra and these are normally not experienced in ordinary human life.
However, since we have entered the Age of Aquarius, this energy is being stirred and we are witnessing more and more souls discovering the true essence of their selves through initiation, meditation and a subsequently well-harmonized Kundalini activation. A fully operating chakra system confers upon the individual access to cosmic consciousness, extra-sensory perception (ESP), connection with higher realms, higher knowledge, intuition, sentience, telepathy, telekinesis, psychokinesis and various other extended human capabilities. I prefer to look upon this as a possible new avenue of human evolution.
