How Energy Centers or Chakras and Glands Work Together
Disturbances in the subtle energy of the chakras translate into physical manifestation and symptoms who are likely associated with the corresponding glands and organs. It is not to say that chakras are physical or physiological in nature. They are considered as energy centers that influence our being at many levels such as astral, subtle, spiritual including the physical and biological levels.
Whenever one of our energy centers is thrown off balance by a blockage, physical maladies begin to manifest at the physical plane. It is important to remember that chakras function on the same principle as a pendulum. If one of them is underactive or overactive, signs will start to manifest that it’s “out of rhythm”. Chakra balancing is required to bring it back to order!
How is the disturbance felt?
The disturbance is felt either at the level of that specific or the level of another chakra or set of chakras connected to it. For instance, when the throat chakra is blocked you may experience sore throat, neck pain, or laryngitis. Similarly, when the heart chakra is out-of-sorts, high blood pressure and heart-related problems can arise.
How can energy centers be balanced?
With the practice of Sahaja yoga, many people have benefited in bringing back balance not just in the body – but at all other levels known to man!
