Using the Chakra for Physical Empowerment

Updated on June 23, 2009


            The concept of chakra has been prevalent in Hindu and Tao belief for centuries. They are generally defined as nexuses of spiritual energy throughout the body which regulate body, mind, and spirit. In the latter part of the 20th century the existence of chakras and their purpose became more familiar to the western world, though their interpretation stayed similar to that of the Hindu belief structure from which the concept was taken. Recently several radical spiritualist groups largely in North America have come to believe that the powers of the chakra can be called upon or “tapped” in order to accomplish great feats of physical and spiritual strength and ability.

            This tapping of the chakras is accomplished by focusing on the physical placement of the chakra while using a mudra. A mudra is a certain configuration of the hands or a hand gesture combined with a resonation in the throat which opens up and sends energy to a specific chakra. It will be explained how to successfully open the appropriate chakra for different purposes, but be warned, one should not attempt this unless one is familiar with how to close the chakra back up again. Someone who leaves their chakras open can fall prey to many different illnesses and disorders, as well as be attacked by spiritual parasites or vampiric entities.

            Someone wishing to complete feats of physical strength and stamina would need to open three chakras; The Visuddha at the base of the throat, The Anahata at the center of the chest, and the Manipura in the solar plexus. To open the Visuddha place your hands level with your belly and cup the fingers of one hand with the other. The backs of your hands should be facing down. Press the tips of your thumbs together and arch them upward so it would appear that your hands were forming a circle to someone looking at you. Repeat the sound “Hawm” or “Hom” at the back of your throat. As you chant visualize a point of sky blue light at the base of your throat. Imagine it growing in size slowly until the light baths your entire body. The Vissudha is now open.

            To open the Anahata place your right hand against the center of your lower chest with your thumb and forefinger touching in an “OK” sign. If you’re standing let your left hand hang at your side repeating the hand sign. If you’re sitting place your left hand atop your left knee. Repeat the sound “Yawm” or “Yom” at the back of your throat. As you chant picture a point glowing emerald green at the center of your chest above your right hand. Imagine that point of light growing and pulsing until it engulfs your entire body and fills your mind’s eye. The Anhata is now open.

            To open the Manipura place your hands before your stomach and tent them so all the tips of your fingers touch and point directly forward. Fold the right thumb over the left thumb and repeat the sound “Rom” or “Rawm” in a guttural tone. Picture a glowing spot of yellow light in the solar plexus just above your hands. Envision it steadily becoming brighter and growing in size until your entire body is filled with its light. The Manipura is now open.

            Having completed this you should now temporarily have greater strength and stamina. The three chakras that were opened deal primarily with blood flow, blood oxygenation, and muscle control. By opening the chakras and shunting energy to them you increase your own physical capacities. This process should take a person up to two hours when he/she first tries it, but a practiced mudra user can often fully open the appropriate chakras in as little time as ten minutes. Unfortunately the chakras cannot be kept open for more than a few hours at a time as it promotes a spiritual imbalance in the other chakras of the body. Other chakras may become starved of spiritual energy, damaging a person both spiritually and promoting serious physical illness. As a result of these dangers it is imperative that a person know by heart the steps to closing the chakras before he/she attempts to tap them.
