Chakras and the Human Body

Chakra is a traditional Sanskrit word that means a wheel or something round that has a radius, a diameter, and a circumference. Chakra is something that is round and it starts from some place and after travelling a specific distance, it ends at the same place only. This makes the entire path traced by the traveler a complete circle and therefore, a Chakra.


In a human body, there are multiple joints, multiple points, and multiple roots for the nerves veins, and muscles to exist. These nerves and veins are either running parallel to each other or are intersecting something at some point to access the other side of the body. These intersections can be one-off, wherein only one or two cross-overs happen or these can be like a proper junction wherein multiple cross-overs happen.


In the human body, there are 109 total joints where some or the other type of crossovers happen and out of these 109, there are 9 major junctions or nerve centers. From these 9 major junctions, 7 mega junctions account for the maximum number of crosses over and coincidentally, all these seven lie on a very straight line, that can virtually divide the body from top to bottom in a perfect symmetry based upon the outer lining of the body.


These seven mega junctions or major nerve centers are the supply of energy, power, and exchange of good with bad and bad with good for different regions of the body. 


If there is anything that happens in the entire body at least one of these mega centers is involved in the same otherwise there is no possibility of the same at all. At any point in a living person, at least one or all of the seven major Chakras are active and they keep performing something to manage the most complicated human system.

So if you are extremely lusty at some time or you desire sex or any sexual activity, it is because your Sacral Chakra is hyperactive then and you need to either properly engage in the act to satisfy the Swadhishthan Chakra or you need to make it dormant by doing something extremely creative. The more creativity, the lower the activity of the Sacral Chakra and thus, the less lust in the person.
