The human body has seven core centers of energy which are found in a vertical straight formation from the crown of ones head all the way to the base of their spine. These are Reiki “chakras”, which are converging points of energy in people, subtly, within and from these points energy is transmitted and received.
Speaking in a scientific tone, Reiki chakras are major nerve ganglia originating from the spinal cord and thus physically, each is associated with a number of vital organs. The wellbeing of a person, both physically as well as emotionally depends on whether the energy flow of these seven Reiki chakras are balanced or not and any kind of blockage or misdirection results in minor to severe physical health issues.
Reiki technique on the other hand is all about palm healing. Thus, when a chakra is blocked or the energy flow is not balanced, the Reiki technique is performed by a Reiki master on the diseased person in order to open or balance the chakra. Essentially Reiki involves the master receiving the infinite positive energy of the cosmos, acting as a conduit and directs and channelizes this energy through his palms in order to heal an over active or under active chakra of the diseased.
There are seven Reiki chakras in an individual’s body, namely the base/root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and the crown of the head. Each of these chakras are connected with some vital organs of the body as well as psychologically linked to the mind and its emotions. The base or root chakra is located at the bottom of the pelvis, at the ultimate bone of the spinal cord. It is this chakra that connects the rectum, the large intestine, leg bones spine, kidney and the adrenaline gland.
The second and third of the Reiki chakras are those of sacral and solar plexus chakras respectively. While the sacral chakra is all about the reproduction system of an individual, linked with the testicles, ovaries, urinary bladder and spleen, the solar plexus chakra is all about the metabolism system having under it the organs of pancreas, liver, stomach, gall bladder, and small intestine.
The fourth of the Reiki chakras is the heart chakra that controls a person’s heart and the blood circulation system in the body. If this chakra is not balanced then the heart, the arms, lower lungs, skin and the thymus gland that are linked with it ceases to function properly. Again, the throat chakra resides at the base of the throat of a person and is mainly connected to the thyroid gland. Needless to say, physically this chakra affects the throat, upper lungs jaw and also the vocal cords. Indirectly, the digestive system may also be affected by this chakra.
The last two Reiki chakras are essentially the third eye and the crown of the head chakras. The third eye is situated between the two eyebrows and is connected to the face, eyes nose and the all important pituitary gland and the brain of an individual. The crown of the head chakra on the other hand, though not linked to any physical organ is the centre of spiritual power and the core essence of an individual’s being
The Reiki chakras are not only important physically but are the sole reason behind a person’s emotional, psychological and spiritual well being as well. Starting with the base chakra which grounds a person’s existence, one by one the Reiki chakras stand for a person’s relations with others, personal power, his emotions mainly that of love through his heart chakra, his expression, communication and mental creativity through the throat chakra, thereafter his intuition, ability to meditate, visualize and manifest through the third eye and finally the attainment of eternal peace via spiritual wisdom at the crown of the head chakra.
