The first energy center, Muladhara, is first of the main seven chakras. It is the seat of the kundalini. The Muladhara Chakra opens downwards connecting us with the Earth. The energy flows in and out through this chakra, and the presistance of this flow can improve your health. Muladhara controls the lower part of the body, below the belly. If it is closed, it causes illness of the colon.
The First Chakra is associated with the very important principle of struggling against the following impulses of the lower human nature:
- The need for security, money, wife, husband, friends
- The need for sex, the instinct for preservation of the species
The need for food and drink, indolence of the mind and body, need for sleep (dullness, sloth, inertia).
This Swadisthana or Svadisthana Chakra is the second of the main seven chakras. Women have more problems with this part of the body. The sexual energy is creative energy; when blocked, and then the first chakra is also blocked. It means that the kundalini energy is blocked, too. It is important to keep it open and to enable the flow through it. It controls masculinity and femininity, making us what we are. When the sexual energy is blocked, love itself is disrupted. Love cannot be made separate from the exiting creative energy that originates in this Chakra.
The second energy center, the Svadisthana Chakra is connected to the principle of fighting against:
- Sexual lust, greed (for food and drink, possessions), Fear, Falseness (flirting, meanness, untruthfulness), Sadness, Hatred (anger, fury, wrath, aggression).
The third energy centre, manipura, is located in the area of the solar plexus. It begins from behind and opens up in front. The love energy is changeable. The plexus energy is the sturdiest energy. When the manipura is open, it maintains a relationship among people. It makes us feel to whom we belong. It maintains friendship. When we are connected with people, we radiate love, we are beautiful. When it is closed, we feel separated from other people – fear separates us and this chakra is blocked. Men have more problems with the manipura.
The energy center Manipura is third of the main seven chakras. It is connected to the principle of resisting:
- domination, fame, love for honours, criticizing others, cynicism, egocentrism, anger, refined need for food, drink, sex, apprehension, tension, aggressiveness;
- Manipura contains Fire of the Sun, drinking all nectar coming from the Moon and that is the reason why man grows old and dies.
Anahata Anahata is fourth of the main seven chakras. When the heart is open, love flows. Every positive emotion has its opposite – negative emotion. Love -hate, joy – sorrow. When energy flows through the heart, we can express various emotions. All energies are good. If we block pain, we block joy also. To preserve a course of positive things, we should leave a possibility for negative emotions. Love is not healthy until it has passed through the Vishudha Chakra. If energy comes only up to the heart and would not go further, then this energy can be manifested in, for instance, falling in love. Falling in love brings imbalance – one second we are happy, the next we are unhappy, possessive. That is why it is necessary for the energy to flow upwards in order to be transformed into joy.
The fourth energy center, the Anahata Chakra is connected to the principle of fighting against:
- More subtle egoistic feelings, longing, apprehension, melancholy, concernment, doubtfulness, desire, anticipation, hesitation, more subtle conditions of depression.
