Major Chakras and Their Psychological Functions: Basic Chakra
The major chakras or energy centers not only control and energize the internal organs but also control and affect one's psychological conditions. The major chakras have corresponding psychological functions. By treating the chakras, the patient will be healed.
The basic chakra is located at the base of the spine. It is the center of self-preservation or instinct of self-survival. Persons who are depressed or suicidal have depleted and under-activated basic chakras. Person who have lost touch with physical reality or who have become quite unrealistic also have depleted basic chakras. Persons who in spite of their qualifications and their relatively good health condition, have difficulty in getting a job, have partially depleted and under-activated basic chakras.
The practice of one's profession involves survival. If a person is having problems in finding a job, work performance, or business, the basic chakra should be treated. There was this guy who, at one point in his life, was faced with mounting financial debts. When his basic chakra was scanned, it was depleted and under-activated. After several treatments, his work performance and productivity improved in a matter of one to two months. Not long after, he was promoted to a higher position, thereby making it possible for him to earn a higher income and to solve his financial problems.
If a person has suicidal tendencies, the basic chakra is small and depleted. To prevent a person from committing suicide, activate the basic chakra. If you make it big and strong, committing suicide is almost impossible since this chakra is the center of self-preservation or instinct of self-survival.
Hyperactive children have over-activated basic chakra. Some children are sedated to control hyperactivity but this kind of treatment is doubtful. What you do is just cleanse the basic chakra to make it small and inhibited, and a hyperactive child will gradually calm down. Once the child is under control, do not keep on inhibiting the basic chakra because it also controls physical growth and affects mental development.
A better solution for hyperactivity is by distributing the energy of the basic chakra upward to the crown, arms and legs. When it has become decongested and smaller, there is no longer a need to inhibit it. This technique can be used when the higher chakras are partially blocked, thereby making the basic chakra over-activated.
People with insomnia have over-activated basic chakras. To induce sleep, thoroughly cleanse the basic chakra and the solar plexus chakra and then inhibit them.
The basic chakra is not only the center for self-survival. It is also the center for dynamic activities. A dynamic executive or somebody who is successful in business tends to have a highly activated and energized basic chakra. A person with a small and depleted basic chakra has a tendency of making plans but not implementing them. He also tends to procrastinate or keep things on hold. The basic chakra needs to be treated because it is the chakra of action.
