Reiki (pronounced ray-key) can help speed healing of muscle, bone and tissue, as well as bring the body into a state of balance with more life energy or Chi.    This life energy runs through the Chakras in our body, which then moves into the rest of our body for health and balance.   There are 7 major Chakras, and their connections to our organs, glands, and emotions are listed below.

The 7 major Chakras (or energy centers in the body) receive, assimilate and distribute energy.  This energy or life force enters our body through our electromagnetic field, known as the aura.  Our Chakras whirl like mini tornados in the front and back of our body, in close proximity to the 7 major glands.  The chakras step down the Universal Life Force, which has a much higher frequency than our 3rd dimensional bodies.  As this Life Force is tuned down, then our 3rd dimensional bodies can utilize this energy.  The Life Force is what keeps us alive.

The 7 energy centers resonate and vibrate to the same frequencies of the rainbow colors and their corresponding sound vibrations of the C scale in music.  When the Chakras are evenly balanced and in tune with each other, our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual selves are working in harmony for optimum health and well-being.  Thinking of your body as a musical instrument is a good analogy, because each string (chakra) of your musical instrument (body) resonates with and becomes harmonized by a corresponding note on the C scale.  This is why listening to music can be so relaxing and therapeutic!

Here are the 7 Chakras with location, associated glands, musical notes, colors and their functions:

1st Chakra = Root Chakra, located at the base of the spine.  Musical note = C.  Associated with the adrenal glands, spinal column, bones, teeth and nails, anus, colon, prostate gland, blood & building of cells.  Color = red.  Functions: survival, power to achieve goals, vitality, stability & courage.

2nd Chakra = Sacral Chakra, located between the navel and the genitals.  Musical note = D.  Associated with the reproductive organs, pelvic area, potency, fluid functions, kidneys and bladder.  Color = orange.  Functions: sexuality, relationships, enthusiasm, union with nature & personal creativity.

3rd Chakra = Solar Plexus Chakra, located above the navel ad below the chest.  Musical note = E.  Associated with the pancreas, liver, digestive system, stomach, spleen, gall bladder, autonomic nervous system, lower back & muscles.  Color = yellow.  Functions: personal power, self-control, energy, will, peace, radiance, joy, and acceptance of self, strength, action & vitality. 

4th Chakra = Heart Chakra, located in the center of chest.  Musical note = F.  Associated with the thymus, heart, blood circulation, immune system, lower lungs, rib cage, skin, upper back & hands.  Color = green.  Functions: unconditional love, forgiveness, healing, compassion, transformation, sincerity, & selflessness.

5th Chakra = Throat Chakra, located in the throat area.  Musical note = G.  Associated with the thyroid & controls the jaw, neck, throat, voice, airways, upper lungs, nape of neck & arms.  Color = blue.  Functions:  communication, self-expression, inspiration, confidence, integrity, wisdom, truth, independence & access to subtler levels of being.

6th Chakra = Third Eye Chakra, located in the center of the forehead.  Musical note = A.  Associated with the pituitary gland, endocrine system, left brain hemisphere, left eye, nose, ears, sinuses and parts of the nervous system.  Color = indigo.  Functions:  inner vision, intuition, insight, clairvoyance, imagination, ESP, peace of mind, concentration.

7th Chakra = Crown Chakra, located at the top of head.  Musical note = B.  Associated with the pineal gland, cerebrum, right brain hemisphere, central nervous system and right eye.  Color = violet.  Functions:  perfection, divine wisdom & purpose, universal consciousness, bliss, understanding & enlightenment.

The best way to open, clear and balance your Chakras, and therefore your well-being and the amount of energy you have, is to take time to relax, listen to soothing music, be with nature outdoors, and have a Reiki session!

    I’ve also been meditating on the similar idea personally recently. Happy to see somebody on the same wavelength! Nice article.

  13. In response to the woman who said her daughter put a seashell up to her ear and a crab came out of it and bit her: Your daughter experienced a trauma, and this could stay with her for the rest of her life, unfortunately. Thought Field Therapy could correct this so that she doesn’t fear the ocean and sea shells. It only takes a few minutes to do, if you are interested. I have information about it on my website.

    Love & Light,
