Chakras & Endocrine Glands | Meridians|

Category : Aura & Chakras

Why should we care about the endocrine system? We all know someone with diabetes, breast cancer, prostate cancer, hypothyroidism or chronic fatigue syndrome. These disorders are all directly affected by improper activity, or inactivity, of the endocrine system. Hence we all should wonder what is happening with our necessary and important endocrine glands.

The endocrine system consists of ductless, glandular organs that secrete hormones and enzymes necessary for digestion, hormone production and regulation,  immunity, metabolism, fat utilization, glucose uptake into energy conversion and sleep/wake cycles. The endocrine system is so crucial because it connects to the invisible yet very present spiritual chakras and meridian lines in the body. The organs present within this system include the pituitary, the pineal, the thymus, the pancreas, the adrenal glands, and the testes or ovaries.  The toxins and chemicals in today’s water, food and air are directly attacking our endocrine systems. It is imperative that the collective understand how this system works and the importance of proper function. Only then will you understand the gravity of avoiding processed food, fluoride-laden water, heavy metals, xenoestrogens, plasticizers, pesticides and lab synthesized pharmaceuticals.

Whats the importance of the glandular organs? The pituitary is involved in a very complex biofeedback loop that involves the hypothalamus in your brain and numerous other target organs. It helps to regulate release of hormones that tell your thyroid, ovaries/testes or adrenal what to secrete and when.  Under stress the adrenals are told to release cortisol, the thyroid is told when to produce more or less thyroid hormone based on metabolism, and the ovaries in females, release hormones in relation to monthly cycles or menopause. In a male, the body makes and eventually releases testosterone after numerous androgen building block steps. It even secretes hormones telling our bodies when to grow and mature. All of this is due to communication from the pituitary! The pancreas and digestive tree are the main detoxifiers. Once they back up and malfunction, our other glands become toxic as well as all is connected. Then we are at risk for heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders or autoimmune diseases due to toxin and chemical overload which deregulates the processes built into our DNA.

The fillers for extended shelf life, heavy metals in vaccines and EMF and cell phone towers all aid in changing our DNA.  Fluoride partially blocks our spiritual antenna. The endocrine system is the victim. As it plays a crucial role in directing and controlling chemical messages that affect protein and enzyme production. These toxins are affecting our message system, stagnating our immunity, metabolism, spiritual connectedness and reproduction. Surprisingly, that’s not all.

There is a specific reason that the endocrine system is especially special. Each gland is connected to one of the seven chakras. Chakras are spinning energy vortexes connected to the spiritual, not physical body.  They tie us to our higher self and to God/source/intuition. Physically harming the body can also harm the chakras that are attached to them because the chakras are an energy system that communicates with the physical body. Everything is energy! Disturbances in the subtle energy of the chakras translate into physical manifestation and symptoms. Depending on our genetic and emotional predispositions, the combination of chakra and/or physical toxin overload eventually produces disease in an organ that is susceptible, based simply on our unique personal risk factors.


Chakra systemThe word chakra literally means wheel, circle, vortex, or whirlpool. The chakras are connected to a network of psychic channels called nadis, which correspond to the nerves but are more subtle in nature. The major chakras are seven in number and are located along the pathway of sushumna nadi which flows through the centre of the spinal cord. Sushumna nadi originates at the perineum and terminates at the top of the head.
The chakras are depicted symbolically as lotus flowers, each having a particular number of petals and a characteristic colour. The lotus symbolizes the three stages- ignorance, aspiration and illumination. It represents spiritual growth from the lowest state of awareness to the highest state of’ consciousness. The petals of the lotus, inscribed with the beeja mantras or seed sounds of the Sanskrit alphabet, represent the different manifestations of psychic energy connected with the chakras and the nadis leading into and out of them. Within each chakra is a yantra comprised of the geometrical symbol of its associated element and beeja mantra. Within the yantra there is also a presiding deity, which represents particular aspects of divinity, along with the corresponding vahana or vehicle which is an animal form, representing other psychic aspects related with the particular centre.


On a physical level, chakras are associated with the major nerve plexuses and endocrine glands in the body. Endocrine system is a system of glands which secrete hormones directly into the blood stream rather than through a duct to regulate activity in other parts of the body. It is instrumental in regulating metabolism, growth, development, puberty, tissue function and also plays a part in determining mood. The names of the glands & the chakras are muladhara (adrenal glands), swadhasthana (gondas/ovaries), manipura (spleen/pancreas), anahata (thymus), vishudha (thyroid/parathyroid), ajna (pituitary gland), sahasrara (pineal gland). The ideal condition of chakras is that they all be open and active, and neither underactive (closed) or overactive. If your chakras are closed you need to open the chakras so as to make them active, you should feel more balanced, happy and at peace.

Endocrine Glands

The seven major chakras, although undetectable anatomically, are metaphysically linked with a number of different systems within the physical body. We will explore how the chakras bridge the visible, physical, self – in the form of the spinal cord, the autonomic nervous system, and the endocrine system with our ”subtle” body, that envelope o vibrational energy called the “aura”.

Endocrine GlandsWhile orthodox medicine describes our physical system in terms of chemistry, what is now understood in that for any chemical action to take place a change in the electromagnetic energy of the body must occur. This energy emanates from the “mind” and explains the importance of the mind-body link to our physical, emotional, and mental health. The old scientific paradigm of relating to health purely in terms of the visible is now being superseded by an appreciation of “truths” once embraced only by mystics: that thoughts and the mind precede and affect physical matter. After all, what is thought but a form of energy?

The endocrine system is one of the body’s main physical control mechanishms. It comprises a number of ductless glands that are responsible for the production of many different natural chemicals called hormones. These chemical messengers, which include adrenalin insulin, oestrogen, and progesterone, are secreted into the bloodstream from specific organs in the body to stimulate or inhibit certain physical processes. The endocrine system, along with the autonomic nervous system, helps maintain the parameters needed for optimum health by adjusting levels of hormone secretion to suit special demands. In the same way that an imbalance in one chakra affects the others the nervous and endocrine systems are functionally interconnected and any disturbance in one part can lead to a malfunction elsewhere. In order to gain a better understanding of how the endocrine system links wit the chakras, let us look at each pair in turn:

Adrenals – Root (1st) Chakra
The adrenals are triangular=shaped glands that cap each of the kidneys. They secrete a variety of hormones including those that regulate the body’s metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates and ones that control the balance of salt in our bodily fluids. These glands also reduce adrenalin, the hormone essential for our primitive “fight or flight” response, from which we can determine the link between this gland and the Root Chakra’s association with the issues of physical survival.

Ovaries/testes – Sacral (2nd) Chakra
The male and female reproductive organs, or gonads, produce hormones that are responsible for the development of secondary sexual characteristics, such as the depth of voice and amount of body hair. The testes and ovaries control an individual’s sexual development and maturity as well as the production of sperm in males and eggs in females. Our relationship with our own sexuality, and issues of emotional balance concerning that, is a key association of this chakra.

Pancreas – Solar Plexus (3rd) Chakra
The pancreas lies behind the stomach and secretes a variety of substances essential for the effective digestion of food It also produces insulin, which helps control the blood’s sugar level. One of the physical dysfunctions of this chakra is diabetes, a disease caused by excess sugar in the bloodstream. There is a further link with the Solar Plexus and adrenalin, which is why we experience “butterflies in the stomach” during frightening experiences. The associated body parts of the Solar Plexus include the digestive system and a further dysfunction of this chakra is stomach ulcers.

Thymus – Heart (4th) Chakra
Located just above the heart, the thymus produces hormones that stimulate general growth particularly early in lif. It also has a purifying role in the body by stimulating the production of lymphocytes, which form part of the blood’s white cells’ defense system, attacking invading organisms and providing immunity. Scientists now recognize that auto-immune diseases, where the immune system attacks its own proteins, mistaking them for a foreign substance, have an emotional link and are not simply due to physical or environmental causes.

Thyroid/Parathyroid – Throat (5th) Chakra
The thyroid gland, situated on either side of the larynx and trachea in the neck, manufactures thyroxine, which controls the body’s metabolic rate – that is, how effectively it converts food into energy. Behind this lies the parathyroid gland which controls the level of calcium in the bloodstream. In addition to physical growth, these glands are also believed to affect one’s mental development. The Throat Chakra, linked with all forms of communication, corresponds to the need to balance between the rational, cerebral, approach and the emotional expression of the heart.

Pituitary – Third Eye (6th) Chakra
The pituitary glands located within a structure at the base of the skull, close ot the eyebrows. Once called the “master gland” of the endocrine system, it has since been found to be controlled by hormonal substances released by the hypothalamus, a part of the brain This vital gland influences growth, metabolism, and general body chemistry. This includes the hormone which produces contractions during labor and releases milk from the breasts during lactation. It is interesting to note this Third Eye= pituitary gland connection with birth and motherhood, a time when namely women feel that their intuition, particularly with regard to their child, is at its peak.

Pineal – Crown (7th) Chakra
The glandular connection of the Crown chakra is the pineal gland, a pea-sized body that lies deep within the brain and was once thought to serve no useful purpose. Considered in the seventeenth century to be the seat of the soul by French philosopher, Rene Descartes, recent scientific research has linked this gland with the production of melatonin and regulates our internal “body clock”. Melatonin is also the subject of intense scientific interest for its possible anti-ageing properties and is believed to affect the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, and gonads – although no one yet understands how or why. Like the Crown’s function within the chakra system as a whole, the pineal gland is the control center for the effective functioning of our physical, emotional, and mental selves.

Kundalini Rising

In the same way that our physical body’s central nervous system consists of the spinal cord leading to the brain the energetic equivalent is the sushumna, vertical column within which the seven chakras are located. The parallels between these physical and metaphysical structures are striking. Whereas the function of the spinal cord is to relay impulses to and from the brain and other parts of the body, the sushumna channels energy from the Universal Life Force to and from the Crown and Root Chakras. Each chakra is rooted into the sushumna by both a front and a rear aspect. In their traditional depictions as lotus flowers, the petals of each chakra emerge from the sushumna at the front of the body, while the stems open out from the back. The stems normally remain closed and have a negative polarity, whereas the petals consecutively vibrate, rotate in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction, as well as open and close. They have a positive polarity.

The journey upward through the chakras is spoken of in terms of “Kundalini rising”. Kundalini is the serpent goddess often depicted as coiled three and a half times around the Root Chakra. According to Hindu tradition, when awakened Kundalini pierces each chakra in turn as she travels toward the crown. Once she has arrived at her destination the subject is said to have achieved enlightenment. There are many links between Kundalini and religious and cultural archetypes. In Genesis it is a serpent that leads Adam and Eve to taste from the Tree of Knowledge, hereby instigating the inner conflict between material needs and the spiritual desire to achieve higher states of consciousness.. And in Egypt, the pharaohs wore serpent symbols over the Third Eye Chakra to represent godlike stature. It is the appreciation of our Higher Self = finding the God within = that is the ultimate goal of this journey through the chakras..

How to create Good Karma

Category : Past Life Therapy

If you believe in reincarnation and future lives, then you might want to consider what conditions you would like to live under in the future, so that you can progress forward in your Spiritual Life.

How to Create Good KarmaIn considering those conditions, here are some of the things I would personally like to have:

1) To become someone that has the physical and mental ability to discriminate between helpful and destructive actions. Animals and others that are constantly in pain have a very difficult time with this discrimination. Also, humans can be born or acquire problems that can take away their ability to discriminate and intentionally perform genuinely beneficial actions.

2) To be born in an environment where there is enough to eat and all the necessities of life are easily found, including fresh water, air and a healthy environment.

3) To be born with wisdom, status and resources to easily allow for a spiritual practice and to assist others with their spiritual practice. This is one of the greatest benefits I experience from my own Spiritual Healing practice.

So, by thinking about what you would like to create for yourself in the future, you can begin to know how to create good karma now so that it’s more likely to happen. Remember that you get to experience in the future what you intentionally cause others to experience. Deciding to assist others with a genuine desire to help is a great way to begin. Of course it’s important to root out any hidden agendas, misunderstandings or deep seated negative karma from the past.

Hypnosis and past life regressions, along with various other forms of alternative healing are a great resource to help you know what you really want to create and clear the limited beliefs or past karma that prevent you from doing so. Taking the time now helps to ensure that the conditions of your future lives will be advantageous for your spiritual healing, progress and happiness.

How do I create good karma?

The word Karma can be thought of as actions or deeds and also as the law of causality. [Karma] According to Mayavada/Advaita Vedanta of Adi Shankara (Great Indian philosopher 8th Century AD) and most Buddhist schools the aim of human life is Moksha/Nirvana or getting rid of Karma and its fruits. But as long as one has not reached that stage some or the other Karma is inevitable whether we like it or not. Therefore those actions that help one reach the aim of Moksha/Nirvana should be done and they constitute good Karma. The Bhagwadgita says that no human being as long he is alive can avoid action, therefore he must involve himself in actions according to his inherent qualities, temperament, social position, Divine eternal moral order/cosmic law  and stage in life. Again for spiritual seekers the Bhagwadgita recommends superior actions (Sattwic), spiritual praxis, self control and surrendering to the Divine will. All these constitute good Karma. According to the dualistic schools (Dvaita) of Indian spirituality love, devotion, faith, service, worship and final surrender to the Divine is the aim of human life and all actions that help reaching this aim are good Karma. According to the Yoga school of Indian spirituality the aim of human life is Moksha and there is a eight-fold path of spiritual praxis. Following the path with sincerity constitutes good Karma. All human beings are born in the world with some inherent qualities, likes, dislikes and aspirations. There is a purpose for each birth. That purpose will have to be fulfilled in life. therefore, that Karma (whether it is good or bad) will have to be compulsorily done. That Karma cannot be wished away.  Thus, certain Karma is unavoidable. All paths of Indian spirituality recommend paths and methods of getting rid of bad Karma as far as possible, minimizing its bad impact as far as possible and doing good Karma or getting rid of Karma altogether. This is for spiritual seekers. For the common men/women following the general rules of morality and ethics should help create good Karma or reaping the fruits of good Karma.

‘Karma’ is a Sanskrit word for actions or deeds. It’s a Hindu and Buddhist concept from ancient India that embodies the idea of cause and effect, action and reaction. It’s also about contributing to a better and more beautiful world. But how does karma work in our lives?

We believe that acting with good, true intentions – and creating and sharing goodness – will always create ‘good karma’. The idea of helping to shape a positive, loving and kind world resonates strongly with us because we feel that this can have a wonderful ripple effect.

How do we practice Good Karma?

Karma is the idea that whatever happens in our lives is a reaction to our own previous actions; it’s an effect of what we’ve done, felt or said before. In other words, all of our intentional actions have an effect, and we’re the creators of our own reality. Whatever we do, say or feel, affects how our lives will be shaped in the future. Karma is all about doing good, not just for ourselves, but for others and the world around us. Let’s think of our lives as a garden. If we take good care of it, if we put in time and effort, it can be beautiful. But we need to realize that there are things in our garden that are beyond our control: rough weather, the seasons and even the people who walk into our garden, whose intentions are different from ours. But we are the gardeners – we determine what our gardens will look like and how we deal with the imperfect and the unexpected.

Creating karma: living with good intent  takes practice. Day after day, living with the right intent means cultivating mindfulness and compassion amid the chaos. It means paying respectful attention to loved ones, to our surroundings, connecting to nature. It means finding beauty in the small things; being open to new wisdom; to listening quietly. It also means building good karma: we need to replace our anger, greed and negativity with love and kindness.

We create our karma through …
the right thoughts;
the right speech;
the right actions.

In other words, by focusing on good intent. Instilling good intentions in all of our thoughts and actions mean that we can’t help but create and share goodness for ourselves and those around us.
