Scientific Research on the Chakras
Updated: May 8, 2022
In this post I decided to share with you scientific research on the chakras which I found quite interesting. Some of the research has been made by Dr. Valerie Hunt and Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama. Lets start this post with a brief bio of each one. Dr. Valerie Hunt was an American scientist author and former professor of Physiological Science at the University of California, Los Angeles and Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama was a Japanese parapsychologist and author whose primary topic was the relationship between the mind and body.
A substantial amount of research is validating the existence of the chakras. Dr. Valerie Hunt serves as a pioneer on this field of research. Dr. Valerie hunt a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles has measured human electromagnetic output under different conditions. Using an electromyograph, an instrument that measures the electrical activity of the muscles, hunt discovered that the physical body emanated radiation at sites typically associated with the chakras. In addition she discovered that certain levels of consciousness were linked to specific frequencies.
When people in her studies were thinking on daily situations their energy fields measured frequencies of 250 Hz. Which his actually the same frequency of the heart. When psychic individuals had their energy fields tested on the electromyograph. Their frequency ranged in a band from 400 hz to 800hz. Trace specialists and channelers fell into the 800 to 900 Hz range, and mystics connected continually to their higher self had an energy field or etheric body up to 900Hz.
Hunts findings correlate with traditional chakra lore: The chakras can be stepping stones to enlightenment, each inviting a different spiritual awareness and increasing the frequency of the subtle body. In fact the manufacturer of the equipment adapted the machine to measure higher frequencies and it was found that a mystic had an average subtle energy field frequency of 200,000 Hz.
Hunt also found changes in coloration emanating from the chakra points when subjects were being rolfed, as she discusses in an abstract cowritten by Dr. Wayne Massey and others.
Rolfing is a form of massage that achieves structural integration by means of manipulating myofascia. While a subject was being rolfed measurement was conducted with Fourier analysis and a sonogram frequency analysis. As subjects were monitored with equipment noted healer Rosalyn Bruyere recorded the colors she saw through psychic vision.
Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama a scientist and a Shinto priest, also investigated the science of the chakras. He has conducted numerous studies to verify the energy system, many of which have become the basis of his more than twenty books. Dr. Motoyama has created a device to detect minute electrical, magnetic and optical changes in a vicinity of a subject. It is called the apparatus for measuring the functioning of the meridians and correspond internal organs or AMI. During one test Motoyama found that increased activity of the heart chakra area actually produced a weak but measurable physical light subjects were asked to pressed a button whenever they thought they were experiencing psy energy or psychic sensations such as inexplicable feelings, pictures or sounds. These internal feelings correlated to objectively measured periods of heart activity. Experiments similar to this one led Motoyama to conclude that mental concentration on a chakra is the key of activating it.
These and other studies led Dr. Motoyama to deduce that certain individuals can project their energy through the chakras a statement supported by Itzhak Bentov, a researcher of physiological changes associated with meditation. Bentov has duplicated Motoyama’s findings regarding electrostatic energy emission from the chakras.
Dr Motoyama suggests that the chakras are represented in the central nervous system by the brain and nerve plexuses as well as in the meridian acupuncture points. Though chakras are separate from the central nervous system and the meridians, Motoyama considers the chakras as super imposed upon these other two systems, rather than occupying the same physical space. As Dr. Motoyama explains, the chakras supply the physical body with the outside energy through the Nadi system a circuitry that spreads subtle energy throughout the body. Mototyama states that the “gross nadi” equate with the meridian system and together they represent a physical but invisible system of physiological control” located within connective issue.
So as we start advance technologically wise we will start to awaken to the truth that the human being is more than just a “machine”. We have more than just the physical body. And that in order to heal ourselves and others we must start to awake to this truth.
