THE WILL AND THE SEVEN CHAKRAS (SPIRITUAL CENTERS)
Each of the seven chakras has a mental aspect to it. Each chakra also has an aspect of the will to it. So as a person attunes their chakras (centers), they are also attuning their will to function in a harmonious way with all the centers.
THE SEVEN CHAKRAS
1. Root (gonads). Grounding, life-force, survival, security, safety, stability, trust.
2. Sacral (Cayce: Leydig cells). Sexuality, creativity, emotions, intimacy, self-worth.
3. Adrenal (solar plexus). Self-esteem, personal responsibility, wisdom, power, service.
4. Thymus (heart). Love, compassion, healing.
5. Thyroid (throat). Communication, free will, the ability to make a decision. The 5th chakra is closest to the actual will, because it involves decision-making.
6. Pineal (3rd eye). Intellect, awareness, imagination, intuition, clarity of purpose and path.
7. Pituitary (crown). Spirituality, oneness, divine love, spiritual healing.

A. Healing, making whole, harmonizing our life. Our will can cause us to see how all parts of our lives
can be knit together. Synergy - the whole is larger than the sum of the parts.
B. Fragmented life. Feeling pulled one way and then another, feel pulled apart.
C. Pulling things together to reduce everything to the lowest common denominator. Not building the
parts to a higher unified individuality, but reducing the parts to a “norm” to just “get along."
