July 2018 Chakra Reading: The Nadis

The Chakras are an ideal roadmap for personal growth and development. In 2017 we started our journey through the Chakras and focused on one energy center a month. We are going to keep on going in 2018! On our monthly adventure, I am going to educate you about a specific Chakra or a Chakra concept and then ask you to contemplate its function and roll in your own personal growth. This month, we are going to focus on the Nadis (rivers of energy) that create the chakras.

Brief Overview of the Chakras:
The Chakras are openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura or electromagnetic field. There are main Chakras, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal Chakras. The Chakras’ function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each Chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. Each Chakra has personal growth themes, functions, and purposes. The concept of the Chakras has been around for thousands of years, but the energy coming to us from the cosmos is changing. We are receiving potent and new energies of high-frequency light from the universe. The main Chakras (Root to Crown) were appropriate for us these past 2000 years. As we move into a new era, chakras above, inside, and below the physical body are forming and others are waking up from dormancy to help us evolve into our new future. Our journey through the Chakras will focus on ALL of these Chakras; main, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal.

How are the Chakras formed?
The chakras are formed with a mixture of ethereal, astral and mental substances. It is through the chakras that we can connect with the denser terrestrial energies of earth, at the same time, with the subtle vibrations of the universe. These energy flows literally make the Chakras the rainbow bridge between heaven and earth. Rivers of energy/energy flows called Nadis create the Chakras. Nadis are the channels through which, according to Ayurveda, prana and the energies of the subtle body, are said to flow. These energy highways are called Meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The major Nadis connect and intersect at special points of luminosity and intensity which are called Chakras. It is believed that the energy body is a complex woven matrix of crisscrossing energy lines. Where lesser Nadis intersect is where the minor chakras are located. Where even smaller flows of energy crisscross are where the acupuncture points are located. Some ancient texts claim there are between 72,000-350,000 Nadis in the etheric body.

Seven main energy flows create the main Chakras. Energy flows up and down, in and out of each chakra. Energy flows from the universe down from Crown to Root in a path called Manifestation. Thought forms become physical reality; creation. A thought, idea, and inspiration become a physical reality. Energy flows up from the earth and nature, through the bottom of the feet, along the spine, and out the top of the head in a flow called Liberation. Energy stored within matter is released….to purge, to cleanse, to be set free. Physical form is released to become something greater. Energy flows in horizontally from the environment through each Chakra in Reception (information, love, touch, emotions). Energy flows out horizontally to the environment through Expression (creativity, love, touch, thoughts).

Sushumna is the Nadi that connects the root chakra to the crown chakra. It is very important in Yoga and Tantra. It is the grand central channel through which Kundalini rises. Pingala is a Nadi that is associated with solar energy. Pingala is hot, extroverted, active energy. Its temperature is heating and swirls from the left testicle/left ovary along the spine and out the right nostril. Ida is a Nadi associated with lunar, nurturing, cooling, introverted, intuitive, passive energy. It swirls from the right testicle/right ovary along the spine and out the left nostril. Where the flow of manifestation, liberation, expression, reception, ida, pingala, and sushumna all intersect is where the Major Personal Chakras are formed (along the spine).

The Hara Line is the major nadi (river of energy), the connects the Transpersonal Chakra system above the head to the Personal Chakra system in the body to the Subpersonal System below the feet. The Hara Line is the conduit that allows the Light energy from Source to pass down to the Transpersonal Chakras, then down through the Crown, through the rest of the personal chakras along the spine, down the legs, downward towards the Earth Star (6 inches below your feet), merging into the center of the Earth. Just as the Sushumna, or grand central channel, connects the personal chakras in the physical body (Root to Crown), the Hara Line connects the Transpersonal Chakras to the Subpersonal Chakras through the subtle bodies.

July 2018 Chakra Contemplation and Suggestions: I always say, in order to bring the Chakra system and subsequent mind, body, and spirit into balance, we need to look at the energy flows that create the Chakras in the first place. Take a moment and assess the energy flow concepts in your life. How good are you at manifesting and creating? If not so good, then your flow of manifestation needs some work. Connect more with earth, outdoors, animals, water, and nature. Are you a hoarder, live a cluttered life, have a hard time letting people, places, and things go? Then your flow of liberation needs some work. Connect with the universe, cosmos, meditate and pray. Are you good at reading, intuiting, and interpreting other people and their needs, feelings, and emotions? If not, then your flow of reception needs some work. Sharpen your non-verbal communication skills and get better at trusting your intuition and reading body language. Are you communicative and expressive? If not, then your flow of expression needs some work. Create art, use music, journal, dance, and movement to let your authentic self shine! Are you in touch with your active, extroverted, take charge energy? If not, then pingala needs some work. Are you intuitive, nurturing, and introspective? Of not, then ida needs some work. Alternate nose breathing, yoga, tai chi, qi gong, and acupuncture are wonderful methods for working with ida and pingala energy flows. Are you progressing along at a steady pace in your personal growth, spiritual development, and healing process? Or do you feel stuck? If so, then Sushumna needs attention. Sushumna actually means sukha-mana—that is, a joyful (sukha) mind (mana). Find activities that cultivate a joyful mind. Remember, unless you are the universal mind and source of all, we all need a little work. It’s ok! Enjoy the journey!
