What are Chakras?- Chakras are a 7 equal centers of energy that lie on our bodies mid-line. They govern our psychological properties, the lower chakras are more instinctive while the higher chakras are more our mental side. 

First Chakra-  The Muladhara or Root chakra is located at the base of our spine at the coccyx and associated with the color red.This chakra, that connects to the Earth, gives us vital information about whether actions we are considering will nourish us or pose a threat, as well as our basic survival needs and our sense of belonging. When flowing freely we feel secure and confident. If this chakra is blocked or under-active you may be subject to anemia, depression, lower back pain, sciatica, anxiety, frequent colds as well as cold hands and cold feet. There are many ways to stimulate this chakra such as physical exercise, restful sleep, gardening, Red gems, red food & drink, and using red oils like ylang ylang and sandalwood.

Second Chakra- Svadhisthana or Spleen chakra is found below the navel in the lower abdomen and is represented by the color orange. Creativity, feelings, and birth (not just as in newborns but as ourselves, ideas, and aspects) When this chakra is healthy we are tapped into a higher power that boosts creative energy. A blocked or under-active Shadhisthana can bring depression, lower back pain, high susceptibility to alcohol and drug abuse, eating disorders, impotency, asthma, and urinary problems. Engagement in water aerobics, embracing sensations, use of hot aromatic bath salts, orange food & drink, or wearing the color orange, or the use of orange oils like melissa all work as excellent stimulates the cure a congested Shadhisthana chakra.

Third Chakra- The Manipura or Solar Plexus chakra is located above the navel in the stomach area and is linked to the color yellow. Self esteem, sense of personal power, self control, and humor stem from this chakra. When active and healthy we are confident in ourselves, intentions, and our desires. However when blocked poor memory , frustration, feeling powerless, ulcers, constipation, nervousness, hypoglycemia, and toxicity are sure to ensue. To cleanse this chakra reading infromative books, taking classes, doing mind puzzles, detoxification programs, eating or drinking yellow foods and liquids, wearing the color yellow, and the use of yellow oils like lemon or rosemary are advised.

Fourth Chakra- Anahata or Heart chakra is symbolized by the color green and is located in the center of the chest. Love, compassion, forgiveness, and acceptance flow from the Anahata. When open and free we will feel connected and close to everyone in our lives. When blocked we will feel lonely and isolated, as well as several imbalances like heart and breathing disorders, chest pain, high blood pressure, muscular tension, and immune system problems. To cure a sick Anahata you should go on nature walks, spend time with family and loved ones, consume green food & drink, green gemstones, wearing the color green, and using green oils like eucalyptus or pine. 

Fifth Chakra- Vishuddha or Throat chakra, is located in the throat and is represented by the color blue. This is the center for communication as well as self expression. When unblocked and flowing we will be able to express and tell the truth without worrying what others may think, as well being able to express ones faith and thought fluently. When sick and blocked we may become anxious and censor our speech around others because of what their reactions may be. The implications of a blocked Vishuddha are mood swings, mouth, jaw neck and shoulder problems, as well as thyroid imbalances, Stamp or art collecting, singing, meaningful conversations, blue food & drinks, wearing the color blue, and the use of blue oils such as chamomile and geranium are recommended for healing this chakra.

This is where we gather all of our intuition and information in our life. This chakra is responsible for realization and when free and flowing we are connected to our inner wisdom and feel guided in our choices, on the other hand when blocked we develop sleep disorder, distrust, lack of coordination, and self doubt. Stimulants for this chakra are Meditation, star gazing, indigo food & drink, wearing indigo clothing, using violet oils such as frankincense and patchouli.

The Seven Dimensions of Existence, the Seven Chakras, the 7 Hermetic Laws, and the Rainbow: What do they have in common?

Since I noticed there are a lot of misunderstandings surrounding the chakra system and dimensions that correspond to each chakra (or vice versa), I decided to put up a basic explanation of these.

Essentially, as shown in the picture I made in Paint, we are on the outermost shell of reality where matter is the most dense and energy is at its lowest. As you go increasingly inward, matter becomes less dense and energy is higher. These are simply matters of frequency and vibrations, just like if a wheels of a bicycle or motorcycle are spinning too fast, you cannot normally see the spokes.

Each chakra we have is essentially a spiritual version of a physical organ or gland that we have. More correctly, the physical organs are physical manifestations of those spiritual counterparts. Remember, reality came from within and moved outwards, which is the general direction of expansion in the physical universe as well.

The connections are as follows:

Root chakra (red) : gonads, also the glomus coccygeum or coccygeal body, adrenal gland, the kidneys and the spinal column  
Keywords: survival instincts, sense of security. down-to-earth.

Sacral chakra (orange): spleen (Peyer’s Patches) as well as the kidneys and bladder  
Keywords: emotions, desires, and sometimes fears

Solar Plexus (yellow): adrenal glands, pancreas, liver, stomach as well as the nervous system and the bladder.
Keywords: ego, personal power

Heart Chakra (green): thymus gland (immune system), and the heart, blood, circulatory system, immune system, and the endocrine system.
Keywords: Unity, love (PLEASE NOTE: Love is not the same love that you know from marriage or BF/GF relationships or even parent-child relationships, all of which are conditional in some way, shape, or form. This love is completely unconditional and is not affected by mood swings or your emotional state. This love is a frequency, a conscious choice to choose to love everything, NOT the love you are familiar with)

Throat chakra (Blue): thyroid and parathyroid glands, lungs, vocal cords, and bronchial apparatus.
Keywords: Communication, ability to express yourself in various ways

Third eye (indigo/deep violet): pineal gland
Keywords: Intuition, psychic abilities.

Crown Chakra (light violet/pink): pituatary gland
Keywords: Being one with the creator

(Note, some people believe that pituatary and pineal glands are reversed, but I will stick with this order for now).

The rainbow also shows these exact colors in this exact order.

The connections do not stop there. Please see the photo for an illustration of the main dimensions (of course each dimension has a myriad of subdimensions).

Physical dimension: Everyone knows this.

Emotional dimension: astral plane, first stop after death, place where some dreams occur. Desires and emotions live here

Mental dimension: the plane of thought, any emotionless thought you have lives here.

Unity Dimension: This is supposedly where the ego starts getting dissolved and we realize that everything is connected and in union with one another.

Spiritual Plane: Beings of spiritual advancement far beyond our own reside here. The goal here is to gain spiritual knowledge and experience.

Divine Plane: According to some occult teachings, this is the birthplace of our souls. This is where you can communicate with your higher self.

Monadic or Logoic Plane: This is where the creator resides and does his creating from. It trickles down the planes all the way out to our physical plane. It’s concentration keeps existence in existence according to occult teachings.

And no, they don’t stop here either! Everything is connected.

Have you ever heard of the 7 hermetic laws?

Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, Gender.

In short, Mentalism states that everything is created by the mind(fantasy) of the creator. Including you, me, the universe, etc.

Correspondence states that all things that occur must affect other dimensions and have manifestations there (Law of Attraction is based on this ancient law).

Vibration states that everything is moving, nothing stands still.(Frequency, vibration)

Polarity states that all things are matters of degrees, no good or evil, just levels and degrees of morality/alignment, no hot and cold; they are just different degrees. 

Rhythm states that all things rise and fall, have their seasons, like countries, our age, etc.

Cause and Effect should be obvious, it states that there is no such thing as randomness or dumb luck, everything happens for a distinct reason, though it may not be obvious as the cause could originate in a different dimension.

And finally gender, which is the principle of creation, combining the passive female with the active male to create a dynamic thing.

These also correspond to the dimensions and chakras.

Try to look for these connections in your daily life.

I encourage everyone to research the 7 Hermetic laws that appear in this order and tell me it doesn’t feel like everything is connected. ;-)
