Although there are many major chakras, only seven of them will be discussed in this level. See figures 14 and 15 on the following pages for illustrations of the chakra locations.

1) Basic or Root Chakra: This chakra is located at the base of the spine or at the coccyx area. It energizes and strengthens the whole body and is responsible for your physical well-being. It energizes and affects the nearby organs and it also controls the adrenal glands. People with a highly activated basic chakra tend to be robust and healthy, while those who have less active basic chakras tend to be fragile and weak.

2) Sex Chakra: This chakra is located at the pubic area. It controls and energizes the sexual organs and the bladder.

3) Solar Plexus Chakra: There are two solar plexus chakras. The one located at the solar plexus is called the front solar plexus chakra and the one at the back is called the back solar plexus chakra. The term "solar plexus chakra" shall mean both the front and the back solar plexus chakras. The solar plexus chakra energizes and controls the pancreas, liver, stomach, large intestine, the appendix, the diaphragm and to a certain degree, the small intestine. The heart is greatly affected by this chakra. The front solar plexus chakra is an energy clearing house center, a large portion of prana from the lower chakras passes through the front solar plexus chakra before

reaching the higher chakras and vice versa. The whole body can be strengthened by energizing the solar plexus chakra.

4) Heart Chakra: There are two heart chakras. The one located in front of the physical heart at the center of the chest is called the front heart chakra and the other is at the back and is called the back heart chakra. The front heart chakra controls and energizes the physical heart and the thymus gland. The back heart chakra controls and energizes primarily the lungs and to a lesser degree the heart and the thymus gland. The term "heart chakra" shall mean both the front and the back heart chakras.

5) Throat Chakra: The throat chakra energizes and controls the thyroid and parathyroid glands, and the throat.

6) Ajna Chakra: This chakra is located at the area between the eyebrows. It energizes and controls the pituitary gland, and it also energizes to a certain degree the brain. It is also called the masterchakra because it directs

and controls the other chakras and their corresponding endocrine glands. Energizing this chakra will cause the other chakras to light in a certain sequence. Some healers project prana to the ajna chakra to reach an ailing part that is located far from the ajna chakra. The ajna chakra affects the eyes, nose, brain, and other nearby organs.

7) Crown Chakra: This chakra is located at the crown of the head. It energizes and controls the brain and the pineal gland. Energizing this chakra will cause the projected prana to flow to other parts of the body. It is just like pouring water to a funnel. Some healers project prana to the crown chakra in order to reach an affected part.

It is interesting to note that each of the seven major chakras energizes and controls an endocrine gland or glands.

The whole body can be energized through the crown, ajna, back heart, solar plexus, navel, spleen, basic, hand, and foot chakras. An affected part can be energized directly or through the nearest chakra. Some healers may energize through a farther chakra, such as the ajna or the crown chakra, to treat a heart or abdominal problem. Therefore, one can deduce that there are many possible healing techniques to treat one type of ailment. But the basic principles are the same—cleansing and energizing.

Acupuncture points and chakras are gates through which prana can easily go in or come out. By energizing through the nearest chakra, the projected prana will have easy and direct access to the affected part. Whereas, when energizing directly the affected part instead of through a chakra or chakras, a filtering action on the projected prana takes place; hence, energizing in this way takes more time and more prana.

In energizing the whole body, the solar plexus chakra is usually used because of its proximity to the many important organs in the body. It is located at the center of the trunk which contains many essential organs. Energizing the solar plexus chakra should be done slowly and gently. Too much and too intense energizing could cause difficulty in breathing.
