The 7 Chakras - Chakra Truth in a Web of UncertaintyBy Eric Budd You've heard about them. You probably have studied them. Now I bring TO YOU "The 7 Chakras". The 7 Chakras are the functional units of our energy body. Imagine yourself as an atom that is one electron away from completion. That one missing electron allows you to interact and connect with the other little guys floating around.So we aren't actually atoms but microsystems and macrosystems tend to reflect each other... it just makes manifesting life that much easier. And we act pretty much like this... our chakras are negative charged energy vortexes that swirl around our internal, dharmic Light of the Higher Self.The 7 chakras being Negatively charged attract light or energy from the exterior world. Being incomplete, as in having 7 chakras and not balancing the Potential internal Light we Possess with the our negative charged shadow self, we find completion through completing various tasks in life, fulfilling karmas an what not.Now, we all have the energetic makings to have 7 fully functional chakras but if you take a look at the average human, they are vibrating between using 1-3 chakras at a time, illuminating the specific chakra without much knowledge of its existence through their thoughts, actions or emotions.When one becomes aware of all of the 7 chakras you will begin to be able to activate numerous chakras at one time. This activation of our negative charge creates more interaction between our internal light, our higher self and brings that light out and further to the surface. Not to be confused with Kundalini lines or in the Chinese tradition, meridian lines the chakras are not felt within the body but our experienced as OUR EXPERIENCE and their organization and illumination defines the vibration that our being maintains.So as you go through life changing from thought to action, feeling angry to doing something kind for a stranger you are really boggling your whole chakral system up. The 7 chakras should be aligned and should be put into an intended format so that you vibrate an intended energy to affect your own ascension or the ascension of the world at large.Some chakral tips:The following seven primary chakras are commonly described with additional input from my consciousness to connect with yours:1. Muladhara Base or Root Chakra (ovaries/prostate) - It's energetic function is to fill your second chakra with source energy extracted from not the "All Oneness" but from your specific collectives you interact with on a daily basis.2. Swadhisthana Sacral Chakra (last bone in spinal cord *coccyx*) - It's Energetic Function is to separate a unified vibration created in the unified energy field of the said collective into two polar opposites, Positive and negative. A balance of positive and negative is what should be aspired for but in most collectives you will be pulling from a vibration that charges more the positive.3. Manipura) Solar Plexus Chakra (navel area) - Energetic Function is to give force and respect to our actions. If we do not have force we will not manifest anything. This Chakra pulls energy from the second chakra via respect so that an action or purpose can be realized with force.4. Anahata Heart Chakra (heart area) - The energetic function of this chakra is to open our reception to the Karmic Factor. Here we want to open ourselves and activated to vibrate with joy and gratitude. But it as well is a shadow aspect of what we physically experience. The what comes around goes around. While in the second chakra both positive and negative charges exist. In the heart chakra it is mainly a negative charge. In the Manipura it is mainly a positive charge. There two chakras interact the most to create the phenomenon of Yin and Yang and are responsible for many physical attributes as well as proper movement of energy thoughout the meridian channels.5. Vishuddha Throat Chakra (throat and neck area) - the energetic function of this chakra is to begin the personal vibration to resonate with the collective once again. This is done though standard communication, astral travel, dream weaving and many other functions that one may use to share their personal experience with the collective and affect the collective vibration6. Ajna Brow or Third Eye Chakra (pineal gland or third eye) - The energetic function of this chakra is to receive input/feedback from the collective in a final stage before what was being vibrated by the individual person is released back into the collective to be absorbed by all parties involved, clearly after completely mixing with the collective's collective vibration. A chance to make final adjustments to your vibration, you being, your experience before projecting it into the collective consciousness. Also connected with abilities like seeing the potential future for your collective and needed to be opened for astral travel regression. Used in conjunction with the throat chakra when ascension has begun this is the receptive antenna for telepathic communication.7. Sahasrara Crown Chakra (Top of the head; 'Soft spot' of a newborn) - Where we project our vibration out of our own personal energy body and into a collective whole to be used and to be integrated with the collective vibration, can make slight changes or large changes in the collective vibration and those involved in the collective will then have this vibratory change to pull from when believing they are creating their own desires and/or thoughts. The truth is that they are absorbing these thoughts and desires through the medium of the collective the unite with.
