The mind requires activity in order to maintain the flow of consciousness. The purity of mind leads to perfection in Reiki and develops the power of oration; and further, make aspirant dive deep into the ocean of bliss and see the universal beauty within. Man is a microcosm and whatever exists on the outside of him is a reflection of the outer universe but existing in him. Everything that has happened since the creation came into being is recorded in the cosmos and all of cosmic impressions can be retrieved by the aspirant when the mind is attuned with the cosmic impression. Retrieval and disclosure of sacred Reiki symbols by Reiki Master Dr. Mikao Usui were the act of divine virtue. All of these are to be treated as sacred; and when the energy centre of the body is purified by Reiki, the aspirant becomes sacred themselves and provides the meaning of the life because it will solve the karmic matters of the aspirant and bestow the divine grace on practitioners.
The six centres are life energy forces that need to be purified before any advanced spiritual practices so that the ultimate goal of the soul is achieved. Six centre of the spinal column signifies distinct life forces and would be categorised into 50 different patterns which have affinities with 50 alphabets of the ancient Sanskrit language. Each chakra has a particular number of petals, and each petal has a particular Sanskrit alphabet letter which resonates with the letter of which exists in the dormant form. The number of petals of the lotuses varies in each chakra, starting from the root chakra to the top crown chakra have 4, 6, 10 12, 16, 2 and thousand-petals respectively. Each chakra has separate Yoga Nadi of which encamps around the chakras vibrating with the particular letter.
In the ancient times, the sage composed mantras in such a way which resonated and got vibration to all energy centres and Nadis of the body. You can also compose distinct sublime hymns that resonate the chakras and Nadis but provided that you have an elementary knowledge of the Bija mantra and which sound resonates the energy centre. Mantra is repeated in the specific energy centre and can be felt quite a lot of symptoms of descent divine energy that appear on the level of the body, mind emotions and others superconscious planes. Repeating mantra on one of the particular energy centre is just stimulating it by striking through the sound of the mantras and keeps the vibration continued around the specific area until it is filled with more prana energy around it. Let’s take the first energy centre that is the root chakra. The lower three chakras are root chakra, sacral plexus and solar plexus and all three form the great junction of the right and left chains of Ida and Pingala with the cerebra-spinal axis and being connected all with lumbar plexus.
The root chakra is situated between the reproductive organ and the anus, at the base of the spinal column and is triangular in form and red. Here the kundalini stays dormant, the knot of Brahma and prana energy respites on this chakra which is known as Svayambhu Linga. Presiding deity is Ganesh and goddess – Dakini (power/Shakti). Kundalini is coiled in the root chakra – manifests fundamental support; the seat of the earth and Kundalini Shakti, be composed to a magnet with two poles. This is the point from where four important Nadis emanate which appear as petals of lotus and subtle vibrations that are created by each Nadi are symbolised by the Sanskrit letters i.e. vam, ṣam, Ṥam and sam, and lam is the Bija mantra of the root chakra. Fire, sun and moon are called as the Bija. One who meditates on the root chakra will acquire full knowledge of kundalini and enable oneself, to awaken it and gradually accumulate sufficient prana energy in the root chakra that takes one’s prana energy to enter the middle Brahma Nadi. This is the first step of kundalini to awaken; Ida, Pingala, and Sushumna are purified and prana energy flow is increased, prana energy that enters through the crown chakra enhances. The aspirant can feel cool prana energy over the crown chakra by waving the right hand over it without touch the head. When crown chakra is active then aspirant can feel cool energy; when it is to be disturbed then hot energy is felt.
In fact, Reiki provides the cosmic energy according to aspirant’s biological nature and that would is felt as hot or cold but that hardly matters. Cool energy over the crown chakra is indispensable to keeping the others chakras to be more active and aspirant can judge it by placing the hands on the knees in upward direction during meditation. So if aspirant feels cool vibration then he/she can meditate upon root chakra which gives sufficient prana energy and within five minutes he/she can draw energy to the swadhishthana Chaka/prostatic plexus and experiences more energetic vibration of blissful state from which the mind can easily rise up to sacral then solar plexus and so on with other chakras meditated on with the same dedications.
Balanced root chakra gives security, patience, manifestation, stability, and energy. Moreover indicates stability and seat of physical vitality. When the root chakra is not working properly then the problems that occur in one are unhappiness in choice of work, fear, kidney, knees, hips, and anus problems.
