Through this signalling, the chakras attract and repel people and events into our lives, depending on the lessons we need to learn to aid in the growth or expression of that energy centre.
Some Psychics known as sensitives, read these signals by feeling out the projections from the chakras and interpreting them into a useable language to achieve an understanding of the person and their situation. Healers also work on these points by feeling the condition of the chakra and its relationship to the other energy points, then using various forms of energy; Crystals, Oils, herbs, colour, sound, Reiki, or Chi adjust the chakra and chakra system to a more harmonious state.
Working with Chakras is an excellent method of attaining more understanding of the self it encourages one, to be more sensitive to them selves, and to take action in aiding the flow of energy throughout the whole of the energy system. Such sensitivity promotes good health, a positive mind, a cleaner emotional centre, a positive sense of self.
The Chart above indicates the chakra points and their position on the body, their colour vibration and relationship to the three forms of self. The Chart above also outlines their names, basic natures, and corresponding balancing chakra points.

* Earth Star Chakra - Magnetic Definition
The Earth star is our magnetic imprint upon this place. It is the reason, the program, the karmic imprint, the limit of boundaries, the lessons of this life. In astrological terms it is a physical imprint of the natal chart, our metaphysical definition printed around our feet. It is through this chakra that we connect to Earth Plane and are propelled into a life. It is the individual journey that each of us take. Our program may be altered but this can take a long time to achieve; Life a series of questions and challenges to the program, which are tested through the personality to strive beyond the program, to improve, to become, to better the self, to better the life, and to accept its place. It is the understanding of the value of our unique journey that stimulates this chakra, and it is our acceptance that sets the star free. The more value we can see, the more we are free. Greater acceptance of our part in the great play, increases our acceptance of others. The Light body is linked through this chakra point, which becomes free to walk in this life when our physical roles are accepted.

The next two areas of knowledge are not often mentioned in Chakra books therefore we really wanted to include them, as we have found that many people do get stuck without little extra bit of information on the Chakra Counter balances, and Three forms of self.
This makes the first point of growth a positive sense of self. A positive sense who we are (Solar Plexus) balanced with a positive self expression of the self (throat). Building a positive sense of self is the first goal, before delving into the lower self or higher self. Learning to accept who we are, for what we are. There can be no growth before one accepts themselves, and takes a positive view of who they are.
The Naval, our emotional and sensational centre is balanced by the Brow. This balance is built on the first goal being achieved. The navel is full of current sensations and emotions as well as the deposit of all previous emotions and sensations; the build up those feelings relates to our subconscious mind, hence its association with the brow chakra. The Naval only feels, it can not think. Feelings need to be balanced by rational which is the domain of the Brow, therefore the link between the two allows one to see, and to personify their feelings. Working with the Heart chakra the two can be balanced. To attempt to delve higher or lower before attaining a positive sense of self can lead people to delusions of grandeur, or feelings of paranoia. The subconscious mind contains all of our experiences, hopes and dreams, fears and doubts, with out the light of self it�s a dark place.
Are the final areas. These are purely diametrically opposed for one contains the ideal of perfection, and the other contains the animal of being human and the necessity of survival. This does not mean that the human animal is negative, certainly not, it only means that the animal needs to be enlightened too. The animal in us again does not have higher brain functions, and wont surrender it�s self unless coxed to do so gently by the heart and the building of the previous realms.
Fig 1 in the Chart above, divides the charkas into forms of the self.
The Inner flute is a mystical channel that connects all chakra points in a straight line. The channel works in both directions. This channel is used for drawing energy in, or to expel energy. It�s the same channel associated with the raising of Kundalini and the central nervous system. Energy can be drawn in, by means breathing through the crown and down to the feet. Energy can not be expelled through the root; energy can only be expelled through the crown. This means that what ever is expelled travels through the heart and brow, so that it can be seen, understood, and changed. The same channel is used in Tantra, Yoga, and magical practice. It is our own personal inner wand or magical staff.
