The Mooladhara Chakra has two possibilities. Its first potentiality is a natural one that is given to one with birth; its other possibility is obtainable by meditation. Lovemaking is the natural possibility and Brahmacharya is its transformation. The more the mind is focused upon and gripped by sexual desire, the more difficult it will be to reach its ultimate potential of Brahmacharya.
The following illustrations portray the locations of the seven chakra levels of the Physical Body:
1. Physical Level
Four locations: heels of the feet and hands. Function: energy outlet for self declaration and for liberating physical fierceness; power spots. Too open: very challenging. Blocked: predisposition to walk more on the toes; not to communicate the self or no yearning to be noticed; a sensation of walking on egg shells; Hands might seem cold and pulled back; complexity in reaching out, shaking hands or affecting others.
2. Emotional Level
Location: spleen. Function: peace on the emotional level. Too open: unnecessary fury articulated, sometimes in detrimental processes. Blocked: holding too much fury which may be liberated in subconscious manners.
3. Mental Level
