Chakras are whirling energy centers and are very important parts of the bioplasmic body. Just as the visible physical body has vital and minor organs the bioplasmic body has major, minor, and mini chakras. Major chakras are whirling energy centers, which are about three to four inches in diameter. They control and energise the major and vital organs of the visible physical body. Major chakras are just like power stations that supply vital energy to major and vital organs. When the power stations malfunction the vital organs become sick or diseased because they do not have enough vital energy to operate properly! Minor chakras are about one to two inches in diameter. Mini chakras are smaller than one inch in diameter. Minor and mini chakras control and energise the less important parts of the visible physical body. The chakras interpenetrate and extend beyond the visible physical body.
What do the chakras do and why are they so important?
1. They absorb, digest, and distribute prana to the different parts of the body.
2. They control, energise, and are responsible for the proper functioning of the whole physical body and its different parts and organs. The endocrine glands are controlled and energised by some of the major chakras. The endocrine glands can be stimulated or inhibited by controlling or manipulating the major chakras. A lot of ailments are caused partially by the malfunctioning of the chakras.
3. Some chakras are sites or centers of the psychic faculties. Activation of certain chakras (energy centers) may result in the development of certain psychic faculties. For example, among the easiest and safest chakras to activate are the hand chakras. These are located at the center of the palms. By activating the hand chakras, one develops the ability to feel subtle energies and the ability to feel the outer, health, and inner auras. This can simply be accomplished by regularly concentrating on them. It is called sensitising the hands.

This chakra is located at the base of the spine or the coccyx area. The basic chakra controls, energises and strengthens the whole visible physical body. It controls and energises the muscular and skeletal systems, the spine, the production and the quality of the blood produced, the adrenal glands, the tissues of the body and of the internal organs. It also affects and energises the sexual organs. The basic chakra affects the body heat, the general vitality, and the growth of infants and children. Malfunctioning of this chakra manifests as arthritis, spinal ailments, blood ailments, cancer, bone cancer, leukemia, allergy, growth problem, low vitality, and slow healing of wounds and broken bones. Persons with highly activated basic chakra tend to be robust and healthy, while persons with less active basic chakra tend to be fragile and weak. Old people usually have depleted or very depleted basic chakra. This is why their body is weak and become smaller, their spine tend to curve, and they tend to develop arthritis. The basic chakra is like the root of a tree. If the root is weak, the tree is weak. If the basic chakra is very weak, the body is also very weak. Another term for the basic chakra is 'root chakra'.
This chakra is located on the pubic area. It controls and energises the sexual organs and the bladder. Malfunctioning of this chakra manifests as sex-related problems. The ajna chakra, throat chakra and basic chakra have strong influence on the sex chakra. Malfunctioning of any of these chakras may result in malfunctioning of the sex chakra.
This chakra is located at the back of the navel. It serves as a 'pumping station' in the spine that is responsible for the upward flow of subtle pranic energies coming from the basic chakra. It controls and energises the kidneys, and adrenal glands. It also controls the blood pressure. Malfunctioning of this chakra manifests as kidney problems, low vitality, and high blood pressure and back problems.
This chakra is located on the navel. It controls and energises the small intestine, large intestine, and appendix. It affects the general vitality of a person. Malfunctioning of the navel chakra manifests as constipation, appendicitis difficulty in giving birth, low vitality and other diseases related to the intestines.
The front spleen chakra is located on the left part of the abdomen between the front solar plexus chakra and the navel chakra. It is located at the middle part of the left bottom rib. It is the major entry point for air prana or air vitality globule; therefore, it plays a vital part in man's general well being. It energises the other major chakras and the entire body by distributing the digested prana to them. The back spleen chakra is located at the back of the front spleen chakra. The front and back spleen chakra has similar functions.
The front heart chakra is located at the center of the chest. It energises and controls the heart, the thymus gland and the circulatory system. Malfunctioning of the front heart chakra manifests as heart and circulatory illnesses.
The solar plexus chakra is quite sensitive to emotion, tension and stress, and has strong influence on the physical heart and the front heart chakra. Malfunctioning of the solar plexus chakra may cause the front heart chakra and the physical heart to also malfunction. The front heart chakra is closely connected to the front solar plexus chakra by several big bioplasmic channels, and is also energised by the front solar plexus chakra to a certain degree. Patients with heart problems usually have malfunctioning solar plexus chakra.
The back heart chakra is located at the back of the heart. It primarily controls and energises the lungs and to a lesser degree the heart and the thymus gland. Malfunctioning of the back heart chakra manifests as lung problems such as asthma, tuberculosis and others.
Energising of the heart is done through the back heart chakra. Energising the front heart chakra immediately energises the physical heart. However the vital energy or prana tends to localise, or does not spread easily to other parts of the body which may result in serious heart pranic congestion. It is not therefore advisable to intensely energise the front heart chakra for a prolonged period of time. Experienced pranic healers energise through the back heart chakra, which does not have localised effect on the physical heart. Excess prana can easily flow to the lungs and other parts of the body. The whole body could be energised through the back heart chakra.
This chakra is located at the center of the throat. It controls and energises the throat, the thyroid glands, parathyroid glands and the lymphatic system. To a certain degree it also influences the sex chakra.
Malfunctioning of the throat chakra manifests as throat-related Illnesses like goiter, sore throat, loss of voice, asthma, etc.
This chakra is located at the area between the eyebrows. It controls and energises the pituitary gland, the endocrine glands, and energises the brain to a certain extent. It is also called the master chakra because it directs and controls the other major chakras and their corresponding endocrine glands and vital organs. It also affects the eyes and the nose.
Malfunctioning of this chakra manifests as diseases related to the endocrine glands like diabetes which requires not only treating the solar plexus chakra which controls the pancreas, but also the ajna chakra. Energising this chakra also causes the whole body to be energised. The mechanism is different from the crown and the forehead chakra. Instead of the usual funnelling effect, energising the ajna chakra causes the other chakras to light up in certain rapid sequence, thereby, energising the whole body. That is why in charismatic healing or invocative healing, the healers touch either the crown or the forehead or the ajna chakra of the patients with their fingers or palms. The sudden intense rushing in of prana in the head area causes some patients to lose consciousness.
This is located at the center of the forehead. It controls and energises the pineal gland and the nervous system.
Malfunctioning of the forehead chakra may manifest as loss of memory, paralysis and epilepsy. Energising this chakra has a funnelling effect like the crown chakra causing the whole body to be flooded with prana.
It is located at the crown of the head. It controls and energises the pineal gland, the brain and the entire body. It is one of the major entry points of prana. Energising the crown chakra has the effect of energising the whole body. It is similar to pouring water on a funnel causing the whole body to be flooded with prana. So, some healers proceed to energise the crown chakra even though the affected part is somewhere else. Malfunctioning of the crown chakra may manifest as diseases related to the pineal gland and brain. These may manifest as physical or psychological illnesses.
The whole body can be energised through the crown, forehead, ajna, back heart, solar plexus, navel, spleen, basic, hand, and foot chakras. An affected part can be energised directly or through the nearest chakra. Some healers may energise through a farther chakra, like the ajna or the crown chakra to treat a heart or abdominal problem. Therefore, one can deduce that there are so many possible healing techniques to treat one type of ailment. But the basic principles are the same: cleansing and energising.
