    Lightbulb Chakras and MBTI (haters: go away please)

    Hiiiya

    Recently I have been getting really into crystal healing.

    In the process I have been learning about the ancient knowledge of Chakras and their areas of influence within human psychology.

    ------

    (Wikipedia)

    Chakras (Sanskrit: चक्र, IAST: cakra, Pali: cakka, lit. wheel, circle) are the various focal points in the subtle body used in a variety of ancient meditation practices, collectively denominated as Tantra, or the esoteric or inner traditions of Indian religion, Chinese Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, as well as Japanese Esoteric Buddhism, and in postmodernity, in new age medicine, and originally psychologically adopted to the western mind through the assistance of Carl G. Jung.

    In the image below you'll see what each Chakra represents:

    ------

    What are your thoughts on the following:

    Can Chakras be correlated to the functions?


    I'm not totally sure such a wide divide can be made. But, intuitively I would suggest -


    Root (1) [Survival] - all of the functions

    Sacral (2) [Pleasure] - Sensation

    Solar plexus (3) [Willpower] - Thinking

    Heart (4) [Love] - Feeling

    Throat (5) [Truth] - All functions

    Third eye (6) [Insight] - Intuition

    Crown (7) [Cosmic energy] - All functions


    Or even, could each person have certain functions more identified with each Chakra?


    **** I've had rude comments before on these topics. If that is your intention, I kindly ask you to ignore this thread. Thank you.

    Hmmm I can see both MBTI and ennagram type links for this.

    Root (1) [Survival] - Id guess gut tried in ennagram (8,9,1) and Sensing in general as well.

    Sacral (2) [Pleasure] - E7 and Se

    Solar plexus (3) [Willpower] - Gut triad again but I dont see clear function coleration here.

    Heart (4) [Love] - Heart triad (2,3,4) and Fe/Fi

    Throat (5) [Truth] - Head triad (5,6,7) and Fi/Ti

    Third eye (6) [Insight] - Head triad

    Crown (7) [Cosmic energy] - Attachment traid (3,6,9.
    Love is magical, magic is out there far too many miss and disvalue it

    I shall endeavour to understand what the eannagram comments refer to.


    Yeah, Te was hard to place - but it is after all with the mind and it's logical abilities that we move through life with a sense of willpower. I don't think any of the other functions enter into the realm of getting things done quite like T in general.


    If I was gonna place my four main functions within the chakras I might arrange them like this:

    Root (1) [Survival] - all of the functions

    Sacral (2) [Pleasure] - Se

    Solar plexus (3) [Willpower] - Ti, Fe, Ni

    Heart (4) [Love] - Fe, Ni

    Throat (5) [Truth] - All functions

    Third eye (6) [Insight] - Ni, Ti

    Crown (7) [Cosmic energy] - Se, Ni


    -- So having said that T in general fits the solar chakra - once I set it up with my own functions there were more there than anywhere else !
