The Navel chakra is located on the navel. It has eight petals and contains predominantly yellow, green, blue, red and violet pranas. It also contains a little orange prana.
The Navel Chakra produces “synthetic golden chi”, which helps in circulation of prana within the meridians. Synthetic golden chi facilitates the drawing in of prana by the etheric body.
The word “chi” is loosely used to mean subtle energies. It is also used to mean a type of “biosynthetic chi” produced by the Navel Chakra and is quite different from the prana or life energy. it affects one’s ability to draw in, distribute and assimilate prana. Therefore, somebody with lower biosynthetic chi will face greater difficulty in drawing air prana and will tend to feel more tired and low as compared to any average person.
Our physical body gets nutrients from eating and drinking and in the process produces hormones through the endocrine glands. Food, water and juices correspondence to different types of pranic energies, which are absorbed by the energy body. The biosynthetic chi produced by the Navel Chakra is golden in colour.
Our Navel chakra can concretize spiritual energy into a “golden ball of chi energy”. This looks like a golden sun surrounded by rainbow-colour light.
Golden chi is necessary for the rapid evolution of the physical body. Good thoughts, good words, good feelings and goodwill must be manifested as good actions. The Navel chakra controls and regulates the Basic chakra which is the centre for actions.
This Chakra is the center of the instincts for knowing. For example, when somebody practices martial arts, they do not think about the next move you have to make. They will instinctively know what to do and when to do it, when attacked by an opponent.
