Chakra = Sanskrit for ‘wheel’. Depicted as whirling vortices of energy. “There are 7 bodies & 7 chakras & within them lie all the means as well as the barriers. There are no barriers outside.” Osho. Chakra system is a map of consciousness. A system of seven (with some variations). Chakras are located where the body & mind meet. They are an interface between the body, mind & feelings. 3 lower chakras limit & confine us. They represent our earthly connection. Enable us to manifest & act in the material world, to bring abstracts into solidity. Govern outer pursuits & the external world. 3 upper chakras liberate & expand us. Govern our inner pursuits & inner worlds. 4th chakra is the connecting bridge between the lower & the upper. Place where the animal/human & the divine human meet. Chakras may be too open or too closed, creating a ‘stuckness’ in that area. This creates repeating patterns & behaviours which bind us to that level of consciousness. Chakras may be prematurely opened (e.g. from sexual abuse, trauma, yogic practices or drugs). This can create difficulty in containing or channelling that type of energy, until the other corresponding chakras are opened & balanced. Energy is neutral. Energy manifests differently through each chakra. Ida = lunar/feminine/yin energy with an upward flow Pingala = solar/masculine/yang energy with a downward flow In west 3 lower chakras predominate: money (1), sex (2) & power (3) - produces a materially rich, sexually obsessed & spiritually dead culture. In east (until recently) higher centres predominate: creativity (5), spirituality (7) produces a spritually rich culture but materially poor & with sexual taboos. Major challenge now - to open the heart chakra. Use of ecstasy by teenagers. Romantic love. Heart disease biggest killer in the western world
