The First Chakra, called the Muladhara (Root Support), is located between the anus and the penis at the base of the spine. It contains the Mystic Energy of the Shakti or Kundalini (Serpent Force). The Kundalini is coiled three and a half times around a central Lingam - the Shiva Lingam - a phallic energy source that is contained in the Muladhara Chakra. The Kundalini is asleep and inactive until this chakra is energized and opened through the work of initiation. The Muladhara Chakra (Lotus of 4 Petals) corresponds with the Planet Saturn, the Element of Earth (Prithivi Tattwa), Alchemical Lead, and the Atu of Thoth called “The Universe” or “The World”.

Its special symbol is the triangle; its Hindu Deity is Rudra; its Shakti is Lakini; and its Bija is RAM.

The Anahata Chakra (Lotus of 12 Petals) corresponds with the Sun (or the Planet Mercury), the Element of Air (Vayu Tattwa), Alchemical Gold (or Mercury), and the Atu of Thoth called “The Sun” (or “The Magus ”). Its special symbol is the Circle or Hexagon; its Hindu Deity is Isha; its Shakti is Kakini;

The Seventh Chakra is the Sahasrara or Brahmarandhra. It is symbolically located above the head and represents, among many others things, the continuation of the Force of Kundalini beyond that of the physical being. This is the mystical sphere of Cosmic Consciousness, the Invisible Throne of Enlightenment, and the Ultimate Place of Union between Shiva and Shakti. It is the supreme dwelling place of Shiva, “whiter than the full moon”. In this highest Chakra there exists a great Triangle of Mystery, in the center of which there is a great Void (Shunya), the symbol of the Supreme and Formless Light. The Sahasrara Chakra, or Lotus of 1,000 Petals (or more correctly 1,001 Petals), corresponds with the Planet Mercury (or the Sun), Alchemical Mercury (or Gold), and the Atu of Thoth called “The Magician” (or “The Sun ”). Its special symbol is the Crown; its Hindu Deity is Parabrahma. The fifty letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, from A to La, go round and round, twenty times, the thousand petals of the Sahasrara Chakra. The Sahasrara is not really a Chakra or Lotus; it is rather a metaphorical center of the Infinite.

It is very important to cure unhealthy chakras. We can influence our chakras, our health, and our lives by using different techniques such as:

  1. Reiki: Reiki healing is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies and brings health and well being to the recipient. Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work in which healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the flow of the energy from a limitless source (God Force) to the patient via the Reiki practitioner.

  2. Color Therapy: Color can be used in healing to bring balance and harmony within the psyche and the body. Depending on what color we choose for healing, the invisible vibration of color can relax or stimulate us.

  3. Yoga: Yoga is the ancient art and science of balancing the physical and subtle anatomy of the individual. There are many different types of Yoga, however some basic Hatha Yoga techniques that bring depth to the art and science of all forms of Reiki are Sun Salutation, The Breaths and The Intent.

  4. Conscious breathing

  5. Physical exercises

  6. Positive thinking

  7. meditation

Chakra balancing meditation:

  • Sit comfortably on a chair with your hands on your legs (I have found with the palms facing upwards more beneficial)

  • Whilst sitting close your eyes and concentrate on your breath, nice deep slow breathing

  • Put you attention on the base Root chakra - visualize the chakra as a bright RED ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the base chakra - breathe in red - breathe out red. Repeat for 2 - 3 minutes.

  • Put you attention on the next Sacral chakra - visualize the chakra as a bright ORANGE ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the Sacral chakra - breathe in yellow - breathe out orange. Repeat for 2-3 minutes.

  • Put you attention on the next Solar Plexus chakra - visualize the chakra as a bright YELLOW ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the Sacral chakra - breathe in yellow - breathe out yellow. Repeat for 2-3 minutes


  • Put you attention on the next Heart chakra - visualize the chakra as a bright GREEN ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the Sacrial chakra - breathe in green - breathe out green. Repeat for 2-3 minutes

  • Put you attention on the next throat chakra - visualize the chakra as a bright BLUE ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the Sacral chakra - breathe in blue - breathe out blue. Repeat for 2-3 minutes.

  • Put you attention on the next Solar Plexus chakra - visualize the chakra as a bright INDIGO ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the Brow chakra - breathe in indigo - breathe out indigo. Repeat for 2-3 minutes.

  • Put you attention on the next Crown chakra - visualize the chakra as a bright VIOLET ball spinning clockwise - as you focus on the Sacral chakra - breathe in violet - breathe out violet. Repeat for 2-3 minutes.

  • Finally see White light flowing down from the Heavens through your Crown chakra all the way through all the other chakras and finally into Mother earth. You should envisage your self as a glowing white being with all the chakras within that spinning brightly (for their chosen color). Hold this for about for 2-3 minutes.

When you feel stress in your consciousness, you feel it in the chakra associated with that part of your consciousness and in the parts of the physical body. Everything can be healed so in understanding the chakras, the healing process can begin with the body and the mind.


These are the 7 ... the 8 -the Kundalini and the 9 will follow .... someday
