People who live life through the second chakra are lacking a center, and they live their lives around other people, be it their family, their leaders, their bosses, their idols. They search for meaning in orbiting others. People at this level are like satellites and they need an external center to give meaning to their lives.
They have a strong sexual urge, they live in fantasies all the time, and they find joy and peace only when their urges are fulfilled: the people of the second chakra.
BONUS for the Advanced: Paranormal Powers
The third eye is also the center of paranormal powers. Once you give a lot of energy and attention to this area, you will meet paranormal powers whether you intend to do so or not. The most common phenomena to appear first are telepathy and clairvoyance, which are the direct perception of certain subtle energies and subtle realities, normally unseen by the eye, becoming visible for the third eye.
The symbolic representation of the third eye is a lotus with 96 petals, 48 on each side. In the center of the lotus there is the famous mantra “aum” who is considered in the East the sound, the logos, from which the whole world was created. This primordial, universal vibration created from itself all frequencies, and is still the central axis of the entire manifestation. Mental repetition of this mantra gradually activates the third eye and attunes the human being to the tremendous universal energy of this mantra.
Attention: caffeine, white sugar, and hours in front of the tv or computer screen can block your third eye. Here we present two effective exercises for opening the sixth chakra. The possible results: phenomenal memory, stopping the flow of thoughts, clairvoyance, and a deep insight into ourselves.
I walked into the first day of Tantra Immersion with an open mind and came out six days later with an open heart. The journey through yoga, guided meditation, and lectures on the principles of Tantra I had signed up for turned out to be much more than what was advertised.
When Anahata Chakra is strong, the search for a lover is a search which is filled with a sense of satisfaction, of wholeness, of peace. It’s the quest of a king wishing to share his wealth with another person. In order to turn from a beggar to a king, the Tantra teachers offer a simple method for those who don’t yet know how to give love to learn how to love.
Love in the heart chakra has a spontaneous self sacrifice. People at this level do not calculate what they give, they are giving. In the same way that a flower doesn’t condition giving its beauty and scent, people at this level give love to everyone around them. Due to this fact, they don’t get hurt or close if somebody rejects their love.
They love everybody around them. They don’t get hurt and they don’t close off. They are outside of the business game, and, therefore, they have an abundance of love in their pocket. So how do you open your heart?
The third center of force, Manipura Chakra, can be found on a subtle level outside of the physical body, underneath the navel.
Its corresponding element is fire (tejas tattva), and when this inner fire is balanced, it grants self-confidence, optimism, perfect health, excellent digestion, and a high energetic level, which allows a person to work hard without tiring easily. Imbalances in this third chakra include low self-esteem, indecisiveness, oversensitive to criticism, anger and control issues, and aggressiveness.
