Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura

In the solar plexus chakra is the ability to execute work, presevering will power, endurance and courage. Lower level emotions also first manifest here. The solar plexus controls and energises the following:
  • Diaphragm
  • Liver
  • Pancreas
  • Stomach
  • The small and large intestines
  • The adrenal glands, heart, lungs and other parts of the body are also affected by the solar plexus chakra.
  • The malfunctioning of the solar plexus chakra may manifest as
  • Difficulty in breathing due to malfunctioning of diaphragm
  • Diabetes
  • Ailments of the pancreas
  • Digestive ailments
  • Hepatitis
  • Ailments of the gall bladder
  • High cholesterol level
  • Heart ailments
  • Dirty blood or blood ailments
The solar plexus chakra is the centre of positive and negative lower emotions like ambition, courage, perseverance, aggressiveness, anger, hatred, envy, greed, destructiveness, violence, cruelty and others. When a person is very angry, the solar plexus chakra pulsates erratically resulting in irregular shallow breathing.

Heart Chakra or Anahata

"Unsullied and pure- that which does not make any sound of protest when struck". (an=not, ahata=sound of agony, protest, pain). The heart chakra is the centre of feeling and direct perception and insight. It affects the ability of the body to fight infection. From the medical point of view, the thymus gland is an important organ in the defense system of the body. The heart chakra is the centre of higher or refined emotions. It is very closely related to the solar plexus chakra since both are emotional centres. To agitate the solar plexus chakra is also to agitate the heart chakra. This is why negative emotions have detrimental effects on the physical heart in the long run.

Throat Chakra or Vishudha

"Pure universal consciousness of divine love". The throat chakra controls and energises the following:
  • Throat
  • Voice box or larynx
  • Air tube or trachea
  • Thyroid gland
  • Parathyroid glands
  • Lymphatic system
  • It also affects the s*x chakra
Malfunctioning of this chakra may manifest as sterility and throat related ailments like goitre, sore throat, and loss of voice and asthma.

Forehead Chakra or "Ajna"

"The controlling or permitting centre". It is also known as the third eye chakra and corresponds to the pituitary and hypothalamus glands in the brain. This chakra controls and energises the pineal gland and the nervous system. Malfunctioning of the forehead chakra may manifest as ailments of the nervous system. The forehead chakra is the centre of the lower budhic or cosmic consciousness.

Crown Chakra or Sahasraar

"The thousand gold petalled lotus." The crown chakra corresponds to the pineal gland in the brain. It controls and energizes the brain and the pineal gland. Malfunctioning of this chakra may manifest as diseases of the pineal gland and the brain, which may manifest as physical or psychological illness.

It is the place of realisation of the higher self, a brilliant crystal clear white light radiating throughout the golden, connecting to the Antahkaran, the pillar of light that comes from the pure spiritual source from the spiritual sky.

Beyond these seven chakras are 645 other chakras, each giving higher and higher insights and perceptions. The eighth chakra is what is know as the "Brahmanda realisation" that is, the pure awareness of the soul's immortality.

With the Reiki attunement the seventh and the eighth chakras are easily available to the new Reiki channel. Through Reiki one can attain the standard of the 752nd chakra level by understanding and following the Reiki teachings.
