Understanding energy channels
Our entire subtle system is governed by three primary vertical channels of energy (called "Nadis" in Sanskrit) and by seven main chakras.
Our subtle system is fully activated only with the awakening of the Kundalini, which cleans and balances the entire system and enlightens the pure qualities of the chakras within us. You can understand the function and spiritual manifestation of the energy channels here...
Left channel (ida nadi)
The left channel (moon channel) corresponds to our past, emotions and desires. Its pure state represents the qualities of deep joy, love, compassion, music and art. However, we are prone to left side problems such as emotional attachments, depression, low self esteem and feelings of guilt.
Right channel (pingala nadi)
The right channel (sun channel) corresponds to our actions and planning. However, we are prone to right side problems such as egoistic behaviour (selfishness), arrogance, pride, anger (violence) and hatred.
Central channel (sushumna nadi)
The Central Channel is the balance of the other two channels. The central channel is the channel of ascent, it is the power which sustains our evolution and guides us, consciously or unconsciously, towards the higher awareness of the Sahasrara (seventh chakra). Daily meditation leads to a cooling of the sun channel and a warming of the moon channel, which restores the inner balance of our emotional, mental & physical beings.
