Left Energy Channel
The left channel (Ida nadi), also known as the Moon Channel, begins at the 1st chakra (Mooladhara) and passes up through the left side of the body, crossing the Agnya Chakra into the temple and terminating on the right side of the brain. The left channel carries the energy of desire and it corresponds to our past, emotions, desires and our affection for others.
Right Energy Channel
The right energy channel (Pingala nadi), also called the Sun Channel, begins at the 2nd chakra (Swadisthan) and travels up the right side of the body. The right channel is the conduit for the energy of action and planning, which drives our mental and physical activities.
Central Energy Channel
The central channel (sushumna nadi), also known as the Middle Path, extends from the sacrum bone at the base of the spine (where the Kundalini energy resides) straight up the spine towards the Sahasrara (the 7th, uppermost chakra). The central channel is the channel of spiritual ascent, the power which sustains our evolution and guides us, consciously or unconsciously, towards the higher awareness of the Sahasrara.
1st Energy Center: Innocence & Wisdom
Mooladhara is the root chakra, the foundation of the entire subtle energy system. It is from Mooladhara that we receive the ability and authority to raise our own subtle energy and help others raise theirs.
2nd Energy Center: Creativity
Swadisthan’s fundamental quality is creativity. It is through this chakra that inspiration is born and creative energy is generated. Swadisthan also governs attention and our ability to distinguish and assimilate pure knowledge.
3rd Energy Center: Generosity, Evolution
Nabhi, also sometimes referred to the Manipura, drives the evolutionary process within us. The fundamental qualities of the Nabhi chakra are generosity, satisfaction, and the drive and capacity to evolve.
The Void Region: Self-Mastery
It is from the Void that we are granted the power to become Self-masters and to ultimately evolve into gurus or teachers, who can go on to provide guidance and enlightenment to others. We become self-regulating, self-reliant, self-disciplined and self-sufficient.
4th Energy Center: Love & Compassion
The fundamental qualities of the Anahat or Heart chakra are pure, unconditional love and compassion. It is through the Heart chakra that we become confident, secure, morally responsible and emotionally well-balanced.
5th Energy Center: Relationships, Community & Collectivity
It is from Vishuddhi that we achieve harmony and cohesion with humankind and experience unity and oneness with the universe. The fundamental qualities of Vishuddhi are good communication skills and the ability to develop strong, pure relationships.
6th Energy Center: Forgiveness
It is through this chakra, sometimes referred to as “the third eye,” that we are able to forgive others, as well as ourselves. The primary qualities of Agnya are forgiveness, humility and the absence of rigid and unnecessary conditionings within us.
7th Energy Center: Universal Integration
The primary quality of the Sahasrara chakra is integration and a sense of oneness with all elements of the universe. It is through Sahasrara that we experience the connection to the all-pervading divine energy, to the absolute truth.
