Your body is your pharmacy, and you are the doctor

How does your mental state affect your physical body?

We’re all familiar with our physical body; skin, organs, ligaments, glands, blood, and muscles. This is because autopsy has shown us that with naked eyes. But do we know anything about our astral body? The body which consists mainly of energy? Not many do. And physical tests are still too short in this region. Energy can’t be seen, but its effect is palpable. Just like an electric current; we can’t see it with naked eyes, but we do know it exists, and science has been able to prove it by measurements. But human energies differ in this aspect because the electrical current was purposely created, and therefore easily measured, and for the sake of mathematical calculations; the direction of the current is logically assumed. But body energies are not readily controlled; therefore there is no means to measure its accuracy. And although scientists have a big debate about this issue, the majority does not eliminate the probability of its existence.

Having cleared that out, let’s go back to the astral body. What is its main component?

Think of a body as just a balloon filled with air and has thousands of electrical currents flowing through it in all directions. These currents would naturally cress-cross each other like a large network. The point where they tend to have the most intersections is called the main energy center or the chakras. Other intersections are labeled as the minor energy centers. There are five nodes or main energy centers located along the spinal cord, and two in the head area, While 72,000 minor energy centers are scattered all around the body, of which the palm of the hand and the sole of the foot are most noticeable. I will only address the main energy centers and their association with hormones induction into the body because of their primary importance as related to the subject title.

Hormones are blood-borne messengers which communicate between different parts of the body. They are secreted in one part of the body (e.g., the gonads) and cause effects or responses in different, distant parts.

Main energy centers:

Crown Chakra

This Chakra is located at the top of the head. And it is associated with the Pineal Gland which is responsible for growth and maturity. It is believed that this gland is deactivated after adolescent years.

Brow Chakra

This chakra is located at the center of the forehead, a bit above the eyebrows and sometimes called the third eye. It is associated with the Pituitary Gland: to stimulate milk production after giving birth, stimulate the ovaries and testes, to control skin pigmentation, to increase absorption of water into the blood by the kidneys.

Throat Chakra

Located in the throat, and associated with the Thyroid Gland: disorders of this gland can cause such complaints as feeling run down and tired, poor attention span, inadequate metabolism rate.

Heart Chakra

Located at the center of the chest, and associated with the Thymus Gland

The Thymus is critically important in the body’s response to disease invasion; the immune system.

Solar Plexus Chakra

Located at the solar plexus, and associated with the human pancreas which is an amazing organ with two main functions; to help regulate many aspects of our metabolism and to produce the hormone functions of Endocrine which plays an important role in maintaining sugar and salt balance in our bodies

Orange Chakra

Located at the center of the abdomen and is also associated directly with the Endocrine gland which is mandatory for the reproductive system, and sexual organs.

Root Chakra

Located in the point between the anus and the sex organs, and associated with the Adrenal glands. The adrenal cortex produces other hormones necessary for fluid and electrolyte (salt) balance in the body such as cortisone. The adrenal cortex also makes sex hormones.

Having gone through all the main energy centers and their associating with the hormones is one step towards understanding the significant role of energy in our health, and that’s another story

to be continued.

    Dear Peach
    I hope my continuation post did give you an idea of how to activate the chakras, and the headache you are getting is from trying too hard to get to the world of metaphysics and to understand it. It’s much simpler than that, you don’t have to try anything just enjoy the feeling and with regular practice you will reach the ultimate happiness and contentment, and you will notice how much your prospective in life changes without any effort from your side. It’s like a recharging battery; it gives you self confidence, and clears your mind for making better decisions. You will simply be yourself again, this self that was lost in the chaotic life we are leading. Do not expect anything unnatural, and when you are ready it will come by itself. You will find yourself floating to different levels of self realization.
