Mar 25, 2018
It is worth noting the fact that it is very important that the chakras are always kept in absolute order. The more they are opened, the more energy will flow through them into the body, accordingly the person will be much healthier and more realized. It should also be noted that each chakra has a strictly assigned function, and the chakras are a window for us at a certain energy level, this in turn affects us, our lives, health, abilities, behavior, relationships with other people, our strengthdirect influence.
Chakras are mainly identified in a number of Hindu treatises, many of the researchers believe that the doctrine of the chakras is rather ancient, and refers to the global knowledge of our ancestors associated with outer space much more and closer than modern humanity. The names of chakras are often found in mystical and fiction, as well as in books on psychology and medicine. Including quite often the concept of chakras is resorted to by many authors of esoteric works and various theories about the origin of the world and of mankind as a whole.
In general, there are seven centers, seven chakras, they are directly in the astral body, but have a connection to the channels in the etheric body and exert their influence directly on the mental body. In addition to the main chakras, there are also many small ones.
Types of chakras
The first chakra is Muladhara( Kundalini)
Muladhara is located at the base of the spine. This chakra answers for basic health, survival, instincts, basic vitality, care for one's physical existence: about food, protection, shelter, reproduction of offspring. In her management is the health and functioning of the legs, genitals, the ability to reproduce.
Symptoms of a harmonious chakra are directly good physical health, liveliness, activity, courage and self-confidence. Signs of the blocked chakra are feelings of a victim of circumstances, fears, a sense of danger, escape from physical reality, nervousness, selfishness, insecurity, greed, arrogance, excessive tension in the body, lasciviousness, bruises, frequent injuries, problems with legs, feet andlower part of the spine.
Chakras, mostly closed to all people. At the moment when it opens, it is directly accompanied in a literal sense by an explosion of energy, which in turn enters the body. This happens in cases when a signal about a deadly danger comes. In this case, the chakra automatically opens and gives out a rather large amount of energy to the body. It is in this chakra that an untouchable fount of energy is stored, which is directly intended for the preservation of our life.
Kundalini, is connected directly to the next chakra and feeds it. The vibrations of this energy are rather low. Therefore, the less developed a person is, the less energy he is able to perceive, and the more in his consciousness there is a manifestation of the survival instinct. And the more developed a person, the less in his mind all instincts are manifested, including this directly and the instinct of survival.
The second chakra - Svadhistana or the Sacred Chakra

Responds to this chakra for emotions, pleasure, sexuality, self-esteem and relationships with other people, flexibility( physical and physical), attractiveness, physical sensations.

Since this chakra is located near the Kundalini chakra, the resultant sexual energy here is the most powerful, as it is subscribed by the energy of the Kundalini. The sacred chakra, like the rest of the other chakras, can perceive and radiate only low vibrations. Consciousness of energy, which is directly perceived and emitted by this chakra, manifests itself in its turn as an instinct for procreation, it is a love for the child itself, a desire for sexual satisfaction, a sexual attraction to another person of the opposite sex, low negative emotions and feelings that arise in that casewhen this instinct is dissatisfied - malice, envy, etc.
With the direct development of a person, the function of this chakra is shortened, as the direct feeding of its energy ceases, the person no longer perceives low energies, which in turn correspond to the vibrations of this chakra. In this case, the manifestation of jealousy, jealousy, and sexual intercourse ceases.

At the moment when this chakra opens and begins to perceive highly vibrating energies, a beautiful astral body begins to be "constructed."Man in turn becomes loving, benevolent, cordial. All these states arise precisely when the highly vibrational energy is perceived by the heart chakra.

Features of chakras
Each chakra is characterized by the perception of a certain frequency of vibrations. In the event that only the vital or predominantly sacral chakra is opened, then the person perceives energy only of the appropriate frequency and manifests itself in accordance with the consciousness inherent in the energies of these chakras.
It is worth noting the fact that we primarily perceive the energies of ten planets, that is, the energy of the small cosmos, which affects the earthly life most of all. They are directly perceived by the chakras of a person, influencing the vibrations of his astral and mental body, thus evoking certain feelings and thoughts depending on which chakra is most open. It is very important that the chakras are not only centers concentrating energy, but also centers of consciousness. When the chakra begins to perceive energy, then it accumulates a certain energy, and this in turn means that the consciousness begins to form a subplane corresponding to the vibrations of the astral body.
Many of us are used to think that consciousness is in the head, but this is a mistaken opinion. The brain is only a tool of the physical body, which in turn has the ability to automatically regulate the functions of all physical organs. The brain gives only orders. This is to some extent a computer that has a screen, a display on which the activity of the mental body is reflected, the design into words and actions. Since our astral body is directly connected with the mental, our senses, emotions and states we comprehend, characterize words, our thinking is colored by one or another characteristic feeling.
It is worth noting that not everything that we feel in the world around us, we can expose in words, much we just do not realize. In the case when the vital chakra perceives the energy of Mars, for example, there is a feeling of irritation. We can not always understand the reason why they suddenly became angry. If the energy of Mars was perceived by the sacral chakra( this energy is more low-vibration), then a strong sexual desire arises. We, in turn, simply react to external influences.
We feel quite a lot, react to very much, perceive very much, manifest in unison with many influences, but we can not understand and understand. Therefore, we can not regulate, consciously manage these processes, hence, we are simply blind pawns, devices that have the ability to turn on and off without our own knowledge, in addition to our will.
The average person uses two chakras - the vital and the sacral. The chakra of Kundalini is closed, the heart chakra of Anahata is also not revealed. These two chakras, in turn, are directed horizontally and, therefore, largely trap the environment. We can feel the mood of the people around us, to some extent vaguely feel the sexual appeal or vice versa, rejection, feel anger, envy, but we do not always understand this.
Spiritual development of a person says that he begins to perceive a wider range of vibrations, is able to perceive energies from vibrations related to higher chakras. As a person develops spiritually, he begins to perceive more and more subtle vibrations. And not just to perceive them, but to radiate. At the moment when the heart chakra is opened, the astral body begins to be created, which in turn consists of the energy of the higher subplanes of the astral world.
In this case, the person emits energy, which the surrounding people perceive with great pleasure. This energy to some extent calms the surrounding people, making them more peaceful and benevolent. The energy that radiates such a person harmonizes the surrounding world, and also improves people. Those around him say that he is kind, cordial, calm to sympathy, compassionate. He is beginning to be loved. Thus, his higher consciousness appears, the consciousness of the heart chakra, the level of human development lies in the development from the sacral to the heart chakra. Above this level is only the consciousness of the superman.
There are seven subplanes between the main chakras. This is a conditional division. Man gradually learns to understand more subtle vibrations. In some cases, we experience subtle vibrations. And they find manifestation in us as a feeling of bliss, love, ecstasy and delight. But this happens to us very rarely. At the average level of development a person can not always be in a state of love, compassion and tenderness. Meditations help us learn to perceive more subtle energies, hence it helps us build a more perfect astral body and reveal higher chakras.
What does the state of ecstasy mean? When the etheric body is full of energy, it causes a state of sexual ecstasy. This happens directly with sexual contact, as there is a flow of sacral and vital energies in partners. In the case when both partners are developed approximately equally, that is, the energies of the sacral and vital chakra in each partner vibrate with the same frequency, then the saturation of the etheric bodies in them occurs equally, and they themselves also experience ecstasy equally. If one of the partners is developed more, then he gives more energy and more subtle energy in contact, the second can not give him adequate energy for vibrations, the more developed spiritually sexual partner in a state of ecstasy will never be in such a partnership.
When the sacred chakra is overflowed with energy, ecstasy of the so-called first degree arises. This is a condition that occurs as a result of sexual intercourse. If the higher chakras are filled with energy, then the state of bliss is strengthened, a feeling of power arises. In the event that the heart chakra is filled with energy, a joyful perception of life, love of everything arises. A state of ecstasy, ecstasy can also cause beauty, art, nature, love for the highest ideal.
What does the state of nirvana mean? This is an unspeakable delight, bliss. Such a state is experienced by a person when the higher chakras, beginning with Ajna, are filled with energy. The more the chakra is full of energy, and the higher the chakra itself, the more prolonged the state of ecstasy will be.
If we look at an example of how our consciousness manifests itself depending on the body in which it is concentrated. For example, in the morning you got out of bed and felt weak: something hurts somewhere, you directly listen to this pain and are not able to think about anything else. Your consciousness at this moment is in the physical body at the level of the kundalini chakra. In this case, the instinct of survival begins to show itself quite strongly.
There is a feeling of anxiety, you can hardly think about anything other than your physical condition. After the pain subsides, there is a feeling of hunger, a desire to eat, this in turn manifests the consciousness of the etheric body, it needs energy feeding. They ate and calmed down. Then we feel satisfaction. The energy reserve necessary for our life is replenished. The instinct of survival is satisfied.
But suddenly a friend came and told you some bad gossip about you. You already perceive this information negatively. It will affect your astral body. There is a feeling of indignation, anger and irritation. In this state, you radiate energy from the sacral chakra, from the level of the astral body. Then you calm down and begin to think about how to act on your boss in order that he would raise your salary - the consciousness is on the vital chakra.
Then you remember that soon the child should return from school - the consciousness in this case is concentrated in the heart chakra, on the astral level. In this case, a state of tenderness arises. Thus, our consciousness is concentrated in this or that body, manifesting itself from the level of different chakras. It is rather important to know from which chakra you emit energy at each moment of time and energy, what chakra of other people acts directly on you. Knowledge of the chakras, the vibrations that they emit, allows a person to understand the principle of interaction and relationships with surrounding people much deeper, to live in this world more harmoniously and wisely.
