By contrast, the Indian or Ayuervedic traditions focus more on the
Chakras. Reference is made to the meridians, but the primary focus tends to
be the Chakras.
There are seven major and multiple minor Chakras. The major Chakras are
the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown. As with
the meridians, Chakras are also associated with principle organs or glands.
Starting with the 1st or Root Chakra, these would be the Adrenals,
Ovaries/Testes, Pancreas, Thymus, Thyroid/Parathyroid, Pituitary, and
Pineal. Probably the most important Chakra after the seven major Chakras is
the Palm Chakra in the palms of the hands. There are actually minor Chakras
in every joint in the body, shoulders, elbows, knees, ankles, wrists, etc.
There is also a Chakra associated with the sole of the foot, but unlike the
palm Chakra which is in the actual palm, the sole/foot Chakra is actually 18
inches BELOW the foot. And as with meridians, there are extra Chakra
“pieces” or components. These include the Transverse and Motor Spiral energy
lines. Where the energy flow in the meridians is basically longitudinal,
energy flow in the Chakras is circular around the central point of the
Chakra. There are three main “currents” that run longitudinally (called Long
Line Currents), wrapping around the body (called the Transverse Current),
and in a spiral moving out and around from the navel, in a widening pattern
(called the Spiral Current). And finally, there are what are known as the
Motor Ovals and Motor Spirals.
