Our chakras – energy centres within our bodies – are vital for our health and happiness. When they are healthy and in balance, we can enjoy healthy, natural movement of energy around our physical bodies and our spirits, but when they become blocked or fall out of balance, it can affect us in a huge range of ways. At the Modern Mystery School, we can offer chakra balancing to restore you to physical and spiritual health!
What is a Chakra?
Every human culture in history has had a concept of the “subtle body” – the mind, soul, and energy, separate from the physical flesh. The subtle body is a construct of energy, and is entwined with our physical body, tying the immaterial to the material. The aura is a product of the subtle body, revealing some of its energy, but the centres of spiritual energy in the body are the chakras.
A Chakra is a key point on the body through which energy flows, a vital site where the subtle body and the material body influence one another. While there are many minor chakras in the body, the most serious and important chakras lie along the spine, from the root of the spine to the top of the head. This corresponds roughly to the central nervous system, the most important energy transfer system in the physical body.
The Chakras act as energy sources and “gates” for the flow of energy through the body – if we imagine the flow of energy as a stream, collecting in pools before flowing on, the chakras are the point where the water pours from one pool and flows on to another. They can become blocked, causing the pool to back up and become stagnant; or they can even overwork, draining the pool behind. When this happens, we can experience a huge range of problems, and will need to find a way to rebalance ourselves: the Modern Mystery School offers exactly this in our Chakra Rebalancing sessions.
The word “Chakra” is descended from the Sanskrit word for a wheel or a cycle, and comes from the same root in our ancient common language as the English words cycle and circle, the Latin word circus, meaning “a ring” and the Greek kirkos – “a ring or circle”.
This has significance for the chakras, as they are often described as wheels or circular gates in the body, through which energy flows, but the meaning of wheel isn’t just in terms of shape – it also links the chakra with the idea of cycles, with reference to the “Wheel of Time” and “The Great Wheel”.
What are the 7 Chakras?
The 7 Chakras lie along the centre of the body, from the root of the spine to the crown of the head, each corresponding to different parts of the body and different emotional states. They progress up from the Root Chakra, through the Hara Chakra, the Solar Plexus Chakra, the Heart Chakra, the Throat Chakra, the Third Eye Chakra and finally the Crown Chakra, at the highest point of the head. Each has a vital purpose in the functioning of the material body and the subtle body, and if they develop a problem, the knock-on effects can be felt throughout our bodies and spirits. While other Chakras exist, the seven along the centre of the body are the most powerful and important, acting as gateways for large amounts of energy. The Modern Mystery School can teach you everything you wish to know about these Chakras and the others that send energy around the body – the lineage of King Saloman contains knowledge of the seven chakras dating back thousands of years!
The seven chakras, from root to crown, are:
The Root Chakra
The Root Chakra is located at the very base (or “root”) of the spine, in the coccygeal region of the body. Associated with the element of Earth, the Root Chakra’s colour is red, and dormant kundalini energy is said to reside here. The Root Chakra is symbolised as a red lotus with four petals, with a yellow square at its centre in honour of the element of Earth.
If your Root Chakra is out of balance, it may cause a range of problems in your body and spirit. Physically, you may experience problems in your lower body, including knee pains and sciatica, while your emotions and spirit may be wracked with feelings affecting our basic needs – the most primal requirements for our survival. These feelings may include anxiety about money, housing or shelter, food, and cold – the ability to provide what you need to survive.
If you receive a chakra balancing from the Modern Mystery School for the Root Chakra, you may return to a sense of groundedness, balance and connection to the physical world, as well as a sense of protection or shelter.
The Hara Chakra
The Hara Chakra is found along the spine, above the Root Chakra, in the groin of the body. The Hara Chakra is associated with water and creation, and is represented by an orange lotus flower with six petals, containing a crescent moon in honour of the element of Water.
Physical symptoms that the Hara Chakra is out of balance include sexual and reproductive issues, hip and kidney problems and lower back pain, among other problems. Emotionally and spiritually, an imbalance or blockage in the Hara Chakra can result in our inability to form or maintain healthy relationships, or to relax and enjoy ourselves. We may be gripped by anxiety about trust and betrayal, or concern that we can’t control our impulses.
If the Chakra Healer who helps balance your chakras at the Modern Mystery School corrects an imbalance in your Hara Chakra, you may feel that your passions are returning; your ability to connect to others and form meaningful relationships coming back or becoming stronger.
The Solar Plexus Chakra
The Solar Plexus or Solar Plexus Chakra can be found in the Solar Plexus region, along the spinal column. Represented by a yellow lotus flower with ten petals, the symbol for this chakra contains a triangle representing the element of Fire.
When the Solar Plexus Chakra is out of balance, our self-image and regard for ourselves is badly affected. We may feel worthless or powerless, may suffer low self-esteem or fear criticism and rejection. Physically, the Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the digestive system, liver and pancreas – all vital organs in the body.
A chakra balancing from the Modern Mystery School can help bring this chakra back into balance and clear any blockages which you may be suffering – bringing your self-respect and sense of confidence and control back with it!
The Heart Chakra
Located behind the heart, the Heart Chakra is symbolised by a green lotus flower with 12 petals, containing a hexagram: a powerful symbol for the union of male and female, as well as the sacred symbol for the element of Air; to which the heart chakra corresponds.
A Heart Chakra which is out of balance can result in serious issues, both physically and emotionally. The heart and lungs are crucial: when your Heart Chakra is unbalanced or blocked, they can be affected negatively with the likes of asthma, hypertension and even heart disease. Emotionally and spiritually, a blocked or unbalanced Heart Chakra is a source of anger, jealousy and bitterness, as well as unhealthy love or love to the point of suffocation. Issues with trust, abandonment and the fear of loneliness can creep into us, causing suffering to us and those we love. When this chakra is cleared or brought back into balance by the Modern Mystery School’s healers, our joy and compassion are free to flow again, we can trust others and be trusted, and we can let go of our anger and bitterness and find true peace.
The Throat Chakra
The Throat Chakra is, as the name suggests, located at the base of the subtle body’s throat. Visualised as a blue sixteen-petaled lotus, often with the 16 vowels of Ancient Sanskrit within the petals, this Chakra also contains the seed symbol for the element of Space or Nothingness, with which it is associated.
When your Throat Chakra is out of balance, we suffer a range of ills, usually of the throat and voice, but also of the face, tongue, neck and shoulders. Emotional imbalances or blockages in this chakra result in a feeling of being stifled, unable to express ourselves. We may have no self-control or feel that we have no power and no options in bad situations. A lack of control permeates our lives.
After a chakra balancing from the Modern Mystery School, an unbalanced Throat Chakra can be brought back into alignment, cleared of blockages and allowed to work to its full natural potential. Our sense of self-expression and ability to communicate is allowed to return, and we feel that we can be truthful and honest, without wilting under pressure.
The Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra – sometimes called the Guru Chakra – is a key centre of energy in the subtle body, which rests between the eyebrows, in alignment with the other chakras along the spine. Its symbol is a purple or deep blue lotus with only two petals, and in the Third Eye Chakra, the dual energies within us merge and become one.
Where the Third Eye Chakra is blocked or thrown out of balance, we may suffer with headaches, migraines, visual problems and issues with hearing. Emotionally and spiritually, the blockage or imbalance of our Third Eye Chakra can cause us to lack comprehension and become moody or volatile, disconnecting from the real world or failing to learn from what we see and hear.
Once balanced by one of the Modern Mystery School’s healers, our Third Eye Chakra returns to being a crucial part of our spiritual and mental health, bringing with it a feeling of clarity, of focus and understanding.
The Crown Chakra
Located at the crown of the head, your Crown Chakra is the topmost chakra in the body, and is the seat of consciousness and spirituality. As the Crown Chakra is the highest spiritual centre in the body, and the chakra associated most closely with the spiritual body and spiritual energy, its symbol reflects this – it is represented in art by a multi-coloured lotus with a thousand petals.
When blocked, damaged or put out of balance, the Crown Chakra cannot perform its normal functions, leading to distraction, depression and anxiety, as well as emotional issues concerning spirituality and faith, prejudice, overthinking and existential dread.
If the Modern Mystery School’s chakra balancing helps your Crown Chakra, you may find that your ability to live in the present moment becomes stronger, and your sense of purpose and direction grows to the fullest, allowing you to really live your life.
How are the 7 Chakras Different?
As mentioned above, the 7 chakras each deal with a different aspect of the body and spirit. The subtle body and physical body are both affected by the energy flow through the chakras, and a blockage in one can cause the others to suffer in turn, as they overwork, become blocked or unbalanced themselves, or even suffer a starvation of energy.
Despite their interconnectedness, however, these chakras are each different. Physically, each roughly corresponds to its position on the material body, but emotionally, they each reveal the hierarchy of spiritual and emotional needs, from the base survival needs to the needs for companionship, self-love, expression and spiritual fulfilment, among many more.
With different spheres of influence, different positions in the body and different roles to play in proper physical and spiritual health, the 7 chakras encompass seven very different wheels, each inextricably comprising a greater system.
What Happens if the Chakras Become Blocked or Damaged?
The seven chakras are vital to the health of the body, mind and spirit, allowing energy to flow naturally through us. When they become blocked, the energy flow is affected, and our spiritual and physical health can be affected.
Any one of them may fall out of balance, causing physical or emotional issues as the body, spirit and subtle body are affected, and will need to be rebalanced or healed by one of the Modern Mystery School’s chakra health specialists. Chakras can become blocked, ceasing to allow energy to flow through them, or even work too hard, processing too much and working at too high a pressure. They can become unbalanced, with one taking crucial resources away from the others, or being deprived in turn. Whatever has happened, the Modern Mystery School can help you.
What is Chakra Balancing?
Chakra balancing is the act of bringing damaged or unbalanced chakras back into balance, returning the system to unity and harmony. The Modern Mystery School offers chakra balancing as part of our services to the world, for anyone who worries that their chakras have become unbalanced. Unbalanced or damaged chakras may cause a huge range of problems, examples of which are given above, but a therapeutic chakra balancing from the trained experts at the Modern Mystery School will bring them back to health.
The Chakra Balancing Ceremony offered by the Modern Mystery School is a relaxing, therapeutic experience, suitable for anyone who needs our help.
How can I Balance My Chakras?
There are many methods purported to help balance chakras and bring them back into alignment where they have become blocked or damaged. These methods range from ceremonies with chakra healing stones and chakra crystals to guided meditation and sleep therapy, but few can match the ancient lineage of the Modern Mystery School. Handed down from master to student for over 3000 years, the Modern Mystery School can trace its teachings all the way back to the days of King Salomon, one of the greatest masters of our lineage.

Cleansing Auras and Chakras
Cleansing auras and chakras of any impurities or blockages that have built up is the best way to restore balance to our lives. Even if there are no physical symptoms, all kinds of psychological and spiritual problems can be traced back to a problem with the energy centres of the subtle body. From anxiety and depression to loneliness, feelings of loss of control, stress at life or hopelessness, many of the things that plague us are symptoms of problems that may be resolved by cleansing auras and chakras.
If you are interested in cleansing auras and chakras of any impurities or harmful structures which may have formed there, get in touch with the Modern Mystery School today – our spiritual teachers will be happy to help you find the answers to any questions which you may have, and will be able to arrange a chakra rebalancing or “etheric reconstruction” to help you with cleansing auras and chakras.
The Benefits of Healthy Chakras
When they are healthy and operating as they should be, your chakras are vital parts of your spirit and your subtle body, linking the spiritual to the material. In balance, your chakras are sources of great strength and joy, both physical and spiritual – so don’t allow many aspects of your life to be brought down by one problem!
Each chakra is different, and each one brings different gifts when it is healthy, clear and balanced. The Root Chakra brings a sense of security and connection, the Hara Chakra brings connection to others, compassion and romantic love, the Solar Plexus Chakra brings love for the self and acceptance of who we are, and so on and so forth, all the way up to the Crown Chakra, the centre of spirituality and consciousness in the body!
Healthy and clear chakras are gateways through which our energy can flow, allowing us to live the way we were meant to, full of energy and able to achieve our full potential.
However, like many aspects of our health, we often take the function of healthy chakras for granted. If we have never suffered a blockage it may be easy to forget how unpleasant they can be, and the full range of their ramifications. We may not be able to determine why our mood has suddenly changed, or a preoccupation with negative thoughts and energies has entered our minds. Perhaps we are tired all the time, or suffering with headaches and trouble sleeping – whatever the symptom, you would be wise to think of your chakras. When they are healthy, they impact a huge range of our spiritual and physical wellbeing – wellbeing that can be negatively affected when our chakras become blocked or imbalanced.
