What are the Seven Chakras and Churches?

Within us there are transformers of energy vital to our psycho-physical well-being. In the East, they are called “chakras” (wheels or vortices), while in the West they are called “churches” or “metals”. These subtle transformers of energy are intimately related with our psyche and our physical well-being.

“The seven most important glands of the human organism constitute the seven chakras.  Each one of the seven chakras is found located in intimate correlation with the seven churches of the spinal medulla.  The seven churches of the dorsal spine control the seven chakras of the Grand Sympathetic Nervous System.

The seven churches become intensely active with the ascent of the Kundalini along the medullar canal.  The Kundalini dwells in the electrons. The Sages meditate on it; devotees adore it, and in homes where the Perfect Matrimony (Tantra) reigns, it is worked with practically.”

– Samael Aun Weor
