Chakras are simply
functions of the subtle body (the mind, emotions,
and intellect). People do not control the chakras,
contrary to what they may believe. The chakras
activate and deactivate as a side effect of how people live
their life – their feelings, thoughts, words, and actions.
When they say Chakra
in Sanskrit means “wheel” – it is not a simply a metaphor, it is
reality. Chakras are simply wheels or cogs in the Grand
Machine. (The Grand Machine is very similar to a computer
program.) Chakras are not intelligent. Chakras are not self
aware; they are completely inert. Chakras are more like a
windmill or a child’s pinwheel than most would like to admit –
subject to the wind (mind; mind rides wind.)
The bottom chakra is
always on – rather you feel it or not. Most people have a few
chakras on at all times, not always on “full power” or cycling
in a healthy way, but never-the-less, they are on. If your
chakras were not on – you would be dead.
Chakras activate or
deactivate according to how you live your life. Doing a simple
meditation or visualization to activate your chakras may work
temporarily, but it is little more than a band aid; a temporary
fix. It will not keep your chakras on indefinitely. If you
want to permanently activate your upper chakras – from the heart
chakra upwards – you have to live the life that supports them.
Feeling or sensing
the chakras does not make them better or worse. If you feel
your chakras and then one day you don’t feel them, this does not
mean that they are not active. You temporarily lost the ability to
feel them. The ability to feel the chakras comes and goes with
the mind or subtle body. It comes and goes with your attention
to spiritual things. This does not imply high energy or low
energy or that there is a problem with your chakras.
If you feel your
chakras, this means that you can see “the man behind the
curtain”; you are getting a glimpse of the Grand Machine and how
it works. It really is a machine, and the chakras are simply a
small part of it. I began to feel my chakras as a side effect
of my spiritual practices which are extensive. I often feel sounds,
emotions, and thoughts hitting my chakras. Sometimes I feel my
chakras spinning, other times not. Sometimes I feel vortexes in
a very uncomfortable way. The times I
have experienced undeniable full force chakra sensations were
during deep meditation. The kundalini experiences I had with
the chakras was like a jet engine taking off – it was
extremely powerful and scary. Not a simple “oh, may be I feel

The Great Sages
agree that most *worldly* (non-spiritual people) who feel or sense their chakras
ill in some way, mentally, emotionally, or physically, yet
these same people often think they are superior to others who
can’t feel the chakras. More sensation does not always mean better,
especially in this instance. (I first discovered mine
after an illness.)
If you experience your chakras, you should
dispassionately observe them; get to know them and their
functions. This will help you gain knowledge of the true nature
of reality. Through activating the chakras you may
have a spiritual or psychic experience, but this new state of
mind or experience will not be permanent, nor
lasting. No one and no thing can give you permanent
experience or state.
All states and experiences are transitory. If through your spiritual practice
you are seeking the Eternal Reward, understand that chakra
activation may be a side effect of your spiritual practice, but it is not a way or path
to achieve siddhis (powers), freedom, or perfection on its own.
The upper chakras
activate: when you are turning inwards toward the Source, when you have a quiet mind,
when you are introverted and live your life inward – not seeking
to change or modify your experience and you accept life as it is
with gratitude and joy.
Finally, there are Shaktipat
Gurus who can zap you with psychic energy and activate your
chakras - this will help you gain experiences. But, these experiences
will not last – these experiences are not permanent. As wonderful as these
experiences are, they will end and your mind will come back to
exactly where it was before you had the experience - if you are
not living the life the supports the chakras!
There are no short
cuts on the spiritual path. The chakras do not
personally care about you because these
forces are inert and impersonal. The reason for these experiences is to
guide you to the path of higher knowledge and to draw you closer
to the Source. If you are seeking
experience, after experience, after experience – you are not
learning, you have simply become an experience junkie and the
spiritual world is full of experience junkies going nowhere fast. Experience is great, but it is
not the end, but merely a taste.. to make you hunger for more
and hopefully get you moving in the right direction.
Namaste to All.
