Chakra and Endocrine System
They allow the energy to flow and circulate inside the body itself. The chakras interact with the physical body mainly through the endocrine system and the nervous system. Each of the seven main Chakras are associated with one of the five endocrine system regions and also with a particular group of nerves called a Plexus.
Each chakra, in addition to correspond to parts and functions of the physical body, is seen as influencing in specific ways the functioning of the mind, emotions and spiritual development.
The Root chakra - Mooladahra is related to the physical identity, it is the place for grounding, feeling connected with one's physical body, expression of basic needs and survival instinct. The Sacral chakra is related to the emotional identity, relationships, digestion/capacity to absorb life's events, and ability to change. The Solar Plexus Chakra is related to individual identity (who I am), ego, will, power, action and creativity. The heart chakra is related to love, compassion, integration of opposites, acceptance and understanding. The throat chakra is related to self-expression and communication. The Third Eye is the place for intuition, psychic abilities, vision, and the crown chakra is understanding, pure awareness, connection with the higher self, divine consciousness.
These key nodal points are clusters of huge numbers of neurotransmittersʼ receptors. They are main centers of communication exchanged between the mind and body.
Through the nervous system, each chakra is connected to several organs and glands, so when energy is congested in the chakra, this communication can be altered and the functioning of the organs may be affected, and disease can occur.
