solar plexus chakra
A PDF Essay From: The Chris Thomas Files
We have travelled a long way along the path to achieving soul re-integration. Many millions of people are ready, or nearly ready, to make the final step into full consciousness. Just when we will, collectively, make that final step is still not fully determined. When the time is right, we will all take that step together. In order to be “ready” to take that final step, we need to be as clean and clear of all of our “issues” as it is possible to be. We need this full clearance in order to make enough “space” to allow the higher self unrestricted access into the physical body. So what are these “issues” and how do we clear them? How do I know if I have any unresolved “issues”? The answer is within the body itself…symptoms of ill-health.
The Root Causes of Illness
To understand the root causes of illness, we need to first understand how the body works and, more importantly, how the soul, the higher self, uses the body to communicate to us. The author has worked as a healer and a psychic surgeon for over thirty years, exploring how symptoms of illness arise, how they can be healed and how the body can be brought back into balance. Essentially, that is what an illness is…an imbalance in the energy patterns of the body. Bring the energies back to balance and the symptoms of illness disappear. It really is that simple.
When we first divided the soul into two, 7,000 years ago, forming the physical self and the higher self, we also provided ourselves with a “route-map” of how we determined if we were following the dictates of the higher self and lived through the experiences that we had planned for each successive lifetime. This “route-map” is given form through the body’s seven primary chakras.
The Seven Primary Chakras
Over the 7,000 years of the Human Plan, many individuals, and many cultures, have been aware of the chakras and the function they play in our everyday lives. Unfortunately, when the knowledge of the chakras was brought to the west, that knowledge became “westernised” and watered down into something romantic. In many, many instances, the true connection that the chakras have between the body and the soul have become lost.
The seven primary chakras are located on the spine and not in individual organs. The chakras look like “ice-cream-cones” of energy, spinning vortices, and not like a rose or a lotus blossom opening. There has also been a great deal of speculation as to the number of chakras ranging from 4 to 13, all located somewhere along the spine. There are only 7 primary chakras along the spine, however, there are a total of 238 chakras located in the body and these additional 231 are usually known as the acupuncture points [or meridians].
The body is constructed around the soul with the main concentration of soul energy being down the spine. At relevant positions along the spine, the soul energy opens up into distinct vortices of energy and each of these vortices (chakras) relates to specific organs and to specific regions of our lives. Every single person on the planet has these chakras in exactly the same location and, each chakra relates to the same organs and the same regions of our lives. Nobody is any different.
The First Chakra
The first chakra is located at the very bottom of the spine. The energy flow from the soul is directed from the higher self through the top of the head and down the spine. That soul energy then connects into the planet’s own consciousness energy through the first chakra. This is why this chakra is also sometimes known as the “root” chakra as it literally “roots” the soul to the planet. As this chakra’s primary function is to connect us with the planet, it deals with our sense of security. This is the chakra that deals with our “fight or flight” response to whatever situation we find ourselves in. This first chakra relates to the skin, the muscles and to the skeleton. It also relates to the kidneys, the urinary tract and the adrenal glands.
The way in which it works is this:
If we are in a situation where we feel mildly insecure (stressed) and we want someone to give us reassurance, the skin becomes affected with eczema. If we are not reassured, the muscles become stiff. If we feel insecure over a prolonged period of time, the skeleton (particularly the spine) becomes affected resulting in osteoporosis. The first chakra can also become imbalanced in more immediate ways through the kidneys and urinary tract. If we suddenly feel insecure and do not know where to turn for reassurance, we can urinate. This is why the young and the elderly can become incontinent.
There are several ways in which the first chakra can be re-balanced…doing something practical, something that makes us feel “grounded”. This can be things like washing dishes by hand instead of using a dishwasher, taking up a hobby such as sewing or carpentry…walking in a garden, particularly in bare feet, to help re-connect with the ground. Use a meditation that works with and re-balances all of the chakras, paying particular attention to the first chakra. [Note: If you use a chakra balancing meditation, you must balance all of the chakras during the meditation. It is no good just working on one chakra. All must be worked on or you will create a greater imbalance in the energies of the chakras.]
The Second Chakra
The second chakra, also called the sacral chakra, is located where the spine meets the pelvis and opens equally both front and back of the spine. In other words, the vortex of energy extends to the front as well as to the back of the spine. In order to avoid confusion, the illustration above only shows the back view. This chakra relates to the lower spine, the pelvis, uterus and ovaries in women and, testicles and prostate in men.
The second chakra has two functions, primary and secondary. Its primary function is to do with our creativity and its secondary function is with our sexual (husband and wife-type) relationships. Virtually all of the problems people experience with this chakra are connected to relationship problems.
Lower back pain is short-term insecurity within a relationship. Hip pain is long-term insecurity within a relationship. Problems with the ovaries and/or the uterus are related to the withdrawal of a woman’s sense of nurture from a relationship. Problems with the testes and the prostate are related to a man’s withdrawal from a relationship.
All of these relationship problems can be overcome if you begin to work with the chakra’s primary function by taking up a creative hobby. The deeper the relationship problems, the more creative you will need to become to overcome the physical symptoms. You will also need to make use of the giveaway – see below.
The Third Chakra
The third chakra, also called the solar plexus chakra, is located just above the tummy button. Again, it is located on the spine and opens equally front and back of the body. The primary function is to do with personal power and its secondary function is to do with the emotions we either do, or do not, express in personal power situations. The chakra relates to the mid to lower spine, the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen and, through the spleen, the lower body lymphatic system, the stomach and, both large and small intestines.
