As mentioned and shown above, the human body is made of three channels (Nadis). The left channel (Ida Nadi or ) takes care of our desires (Ichha shakti). The right channel (Pingla Nadi) takes care of our working ability (Kriya Shakti). The central channel (sushumna Nadi) is the channel of balance and ascent of kundalini. If we have too many desires but we do not work accordingly (if our attention is always lost in unfulfilled desires and in the past), then our left channel is under pressure. These type of people become very emotional, conditioned & day dreamers and their left chanl becomes weak. Similarly if a person starts working too much (work alcoholic) without enjoying his day to day life (if he is is always thinking and planning about future), his right channel comes under pressure. Such type of people become very egoist and do not listen to anybody. They become very harsh and gets satisfaction by dominating others. In such unbalanced extremities, stress is created in human body if any of the channel is overworked.

Sexual 'liberation', adultery, perversions used in tantrism, lustful attention, constipation.
Occult practices and drugs
Main enemy of the Mooladhara is ‘lust’
What happens when your Mooladhara Chakra is awakened and cleansed out?
The awakened Mooladhara chakra brings forth wisdom, innocence, strength of dedication, sense of direction
Such a personality is very auspicious and brings good luck of Divine bliss to his surroundings
Main quality of Mooladhara is ‘innocence’
What happens when your Mooladhara Chakra is awakened and cleansed out?
Innocence is the quality by which we experience pure, childlike joy, without the limitations of prejudice or conditionings. Innocence gives us dignity, balance, and a tremendous sense of direction and purpose in life. It is nothing but simplicity, purity and joy.
The pure knowledge given by this chakra is not mental, but it is direct perception of the Reality, that can be felt in our palms and indicates our subtle blockages. Also this is the center of pure, steady attention and power of concentration.
The Quality of the left Swadisthan is pure, Divine knowledge. Therefore, the left Swadisthan is affected if a person seeks the Supra-conscious knowledge (such as ‘special healing powers’, clairvoyance) or knowledge of the ‘dead’. (such as mediums, spirits)
What happens if the Swadisthan Chakra is clear and awakened
A creative personality with sense of aesthetics. Many ‘enlightened’ poets, musicians, artists have a clear and awakened Swadisthan chakra.
Has the knowledge and the inspiration of Reality.
Pure attention, pure concentration and ability to absorb new learning easily
Able to come up with abstract thinking
Main quality of this chakra is ‘creativity’
Main enemy of this chakra is ‘excessive thinking and anger’
Looks after the functions of the stomach and the upper part of the liver.
If the functioning of the stomach is disturbed, then the process of disgestion and assimilation is affected, and thereby causes tension in this chakra.
Too much thinking about food or material desires also adversely affects the chakra.
Nabhi chakra – the Chakra of Dharma and welfare
Centre of Dharma (innate religion).
Dharma (or code of moral conduct, or righteous behaviour) is necessary for human sustenance and evolution. Man has evolved from amoeba to ape to human beings because of this Dharma – which is code of law of evolution. This code of life protects and nourishes our spiritual growth.
Man was given the Ten commandments, as a kind of ‘code of moral conduct.’ Many other incarnations such as Lord Buddha, Prophet Mohammed also came to establish this Dharma or righteous behaviour.
As prosperity grew, the greed for money increased. Instead of receiving satisfaction from money, people started becoming obsessed with it, therefore causing great tensions and blocks at this chakra.
The quality of the right side of this chakra is our action in the realm of material well-being, diet, financial-arrangements, business, planning for the future, clear thinking and logic. A disorganised lifestyle, finance and lack of logic indicates disturbance in this area.
Unfortunately, today there are many charlatans and false gurus who are masquerading as masters and blocking the void of the pupils.
For a seeker, it is difficult to recognise a true master as such a person is often deceived by the master’s appeal to his own ego conception.
Following false "gurus" who are more interested in power tricks or your purse can damage very much the Void area. But after Self Realization, everything can be cured through the purifying power of the Kundalini in meditation.
The fourth chakra, the chakra of the heart, is the place where resides our Spirit, our true Self, which is eternally pure and unaffected by anything, like a shining diamond hidden within us which witnesses all our actions.
Our Spirit is the Source of compassion, the source of Joy and Pure Love. All the incarnations and prophets all spoke about compassion and the need to become the Spirit, i.e. through Self-Realization.
After Self Realization, our attention becomes for the first time connected to our Spirit and we gradually become aware of it. Our misidentifications with our ego or conditionings drop and we start becoming identified with our Spirit, which is our true nature.
On the left heart, it gives us the quality of compassion and love
At the centre, it manifests as complete security and confidence (at the level of the sternum bone). Antibodies that protect us against disease and negativity are formed in the bone which lies in this area.
At the right heart, it gives us the sense of responsibility and pure behaviour towards others - the protocol of the heart.
All our worries, doubts and fears are destroyed when the heart chakra is fully enlightened by the Kundalini.
In the sixth step of evolution, Christ came to absolve human beings of all sin. He forgave and took upon himself all sin.
He helped man to realise his own ego by allowing hmself to be crucified; great penance was aroused in man, thus enabling him to see the monstrosity of his own ego and this brought about humility in him.
The Christ established within this chakra gives the potential for human beings to forgive and be forgiven, to clear themselves from the effects of their sins and karmas.
Roving eyes disturbsn the attention of the Agnya chakra.
Too much visual entertainment or television or computers adversely affects this chakra.
Wrong notions about God block this chakra. Religious people become dogmatic; they get stuck to the letter of the scriptures and miss out the essence of the prophets. Once should not become rigid. Let us seek the spirit of the Buddha, not Buddhism, the Christ, not Christianity.
The only human effort involved is to put the seed to the Mother Earth. Similarly, a realised soul has to awaken your Kundalini to connect it to the Source. This is the unparalled blessing of our Holy Mother Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
When the Kundalini ascends,it sucks your attention from the past and the future, then you are in the present.
If there are any blocks, she clears them. She is like the river of life which steadily cleans all the hurdles and makes it away to the ocean.
As soon as the Kundalini pierces through the fontanel bone on top of our head, it becomes one with the unconscious Divine Power, which means it becomes conscious on the central nervous system.
We become subtle and start feeling this all pervading power on our finger tips as vibrations.
These vibrations are the outward expression of our connection with the energy force that holds the universe together. After realistion, one can feel these vibrations as cool breeze on one’s finger tips.
The seventh center integrates all the chakras with their respective qualities.
It is the last milestone of the evolution of human awareness. Nowadays, we are at a level which corresponds to this chakra, and our consciousness is able to easily enter into this new realm of perception, which is beyond our limited mind and concepts, and which becomes absolute at the level of the Sahasrara.
This chakra gives us the direct, absolute perception of Reality on our central nervous system.
This is precisely what is achieved by Self Realization, through the spontaneous awakening of the Kundalini given by Sahaja Yoga.
