Did you know that each of your 7 chakra centres actually map to each of your 7 endocrine glands
Each of the body’s basic seven chakras is associated with specific locations on the body, such as the heart, the throat, or the crown of the head. But when you look at a chakra chart, you don’t see the underlying network of glands (and their nearby organs) governed and influenced by the chakra system.
On its surface, the endocrine system seems quite complex. But when you break it down into its individual parts, it isn’t so bad.
Overall, this network of glands is in charge of producing, regulating and distributing hormones throughout the body. Released into the bloodstream, hormones play a pivotal role in the body’s ability to mature, metabolize nutrients, and function.
The function the chakras is very intricate in that it is an energy system that communicates with the body via biological systems, such as the endocrine glands and nervous system, to keep it balanced and healthy.
Each of the chakras in the body is paired with an endocrine gland and governs its function. So before we go any further, here are each of the chakras, their corresponding gland, and their function:
- Root chakra (1st) — Reproductive glands (testes in men; ovaries in women); controls sexual development and secretes sex hormones.
- Sacral chakra (2nd) — Adrenal glands; regulates the immune system and metabolism.
- Solar Plexus chakra (3rd) — Pancreas; regulates metabolism.
- Heart chakra (4th) — Thymus gland; regulates the immune system.
- Throat chakra (5th) — Thyroid gland; regulates body temperature and metabolism.
- Third Eye chakra (6th) — Pituitary gland; produces hormones and governs the function of the previous five glands; sometimes, the pineal gland is linked to the third eye chakra as well as to the crown chakra.
- Crown chakra (7th) — Pineal gland; regulates biological cycles, including sleep.
Not just that, these 7 chakras also correspond to 7 planets in our galaxy
Chakras are the energy centers in our body. The word “chakra” means “wheel”. We have seven main chakras and each chakra is located on a plexus (center of a network of nerves). These energy centers are responsible for keeping our spiritual, physical and mental aspects in balance. This subtle system is the same in every human. What is different is how we use it and with what quality.
Each chakra is ruled by a planet. The mapping to planets used in the above diagram is sourced from Edgar Cayce though there are different theories and variations on which planets to correspond to which chakras. In one version, the moon rules the crown chakra and the sun the third eye chakra.
Chakras display the nature and characteristics of their ruling planets. Birth charts, which are formulated according to our date and time of birth, show the aspects the planets were in when we were born and how they relate with each other. While our birth chart describes our spiritual, physical and mental aspects, it also helps us see how the planets shape us and affect our chakras and energy body. The first breath that we took on this earth has made its mark on every cell of our being and has become an inseparable part of us. Entire humanity shared that moment with us and life started flowing with the next moment. However, that moment of our birth spreads over our entire life and gives us the responsibility to use “that moment” to the benefit of all humans. Only we hold the chance to make that moment perfect. We can feel that our life is part of the universe as we get to know ourselves and balance our being.
In addition to the 7 chakras mapping to each of the 7 notes in music
Did you know that each of the 7 notes in music create harmonic balance to the 7 chakras (your endocrine glands and energy centres) in your body.
The power of music has the ability to heal people that are in distress, relieve pain to those suffering from a physical ailment and much more.
Music’s healing power over the body has also attracted attention from scientists who aim to test this ancient wisdom. A growing body of research supports the claim that music can alleviate physical pain. Studies have shown music to be an effective pain reliever, both on its own and as an addition in connection with other types of therapy.
Take a look at how each of your 7 Chakras map to an Endocrine Gland in your body, and also how each of these energetic centres also map to a planet in the cosmos and also a musical note.
