physical and psychological influence

in the Yogaphilosophie becomesassumed the consciousness level of humans depends on the oscillating frequency of his Chakren. If the Chakren turns fast, they shine themselves strongly and are their colors clearly, should appropriate humans not only physical and mentally healthy be, but also on a high mirror-image-ritual Entwicklungsstufefind. If all seven Hauptchakren including the Kronenchakras are completely opened and the life energy (Prana) without blockades and disturbances can flow, one in the Hinduismus /Buddhismus speaks illuminated humans of one „“. It is assumed that the Chakren admits also in the Christian tradition(been) are. Whenever on Christian representations angels or holy ones (holy = welfare its) are shown, these have a holy light, thus „an illuminated “and/or. fully opened Kronenchakra. They therefore concerned at the highest mirror-image-ritual Entwicklungsstufe.

It is called, the development of the individual Chakren takes placein cycles at certain times of the life and begins already in the nut/mother body. The childhood up to 7. Lebensjahr is considered as a particularly coining/shaping phase. Trauma tables of events, love lacking, indifference of parents, negative coinages, suppression of the natural needs etc. during this time it could lead to the fact thatparticulars or several Chakren only insufficiently or not at all develop. So e.g. is the first Lebensjahr. particularly importantly for the Muladhara Chakra, which among other things is responsible for the Urvertrauen. E.g. becomes the baby in this time. separately from the nut/mother or its needs afterProximity, warmth, food etc. not satisfied, it can lead to the fact that the adult humans does not have confidence in the life and under fears of existence suffers. Also later events or a wrong way of life could lead beyond that to the fact that even in actually well developed Chakras blockades develop. Feelingslike fear, could lead envy, jealousy, hate to blockades. And an exaggerated adjustment accompanying with the restraint of the emotions could an energy back-up cause. The accumulated energy will itself then in inadequate way unloaded (e.g. violent rage accumulations).

Each of the seven Hauptchakren is for completely determined rangesthe physical health as well as the mental-mental procedures responsible its. Disturbances and blockades of the Chakren could itself therefore both on the physical and on psychological level and/or. accompanying show with one another. In the Yogaphilosophie is assumed humans these disturbances and blockades not powerlesslyis delivered. The Yogasystem is to offer possibilities of harmonizing the Chakren and of dissolving blockades gradually. One of the goals of the Yoga is it, body, to heal and to find to an entireness back soul and spirit in such a way in energetic way and in front-walk in the mirror-image-ritual development.It is to be considered however that it is not enough, itself e.g. to concern intensively with front and Kronenchakra, in order to attain realization, wisdom or illuminating. That would possible be only if all Chakren is equally opened and free, exactly the same as it little sense has, a roof(Kronenchakra) to set on a house, whose foundation (peppering moose distal extremity) is unstable.
