What are the navel chakra and the meng mein chakra?

Master Stephen Co
Alternative & Complementary Medicine

The navel chakra is located at the navel and is one of the body’s main power centers. It controls the large and small intestines and affects the birth process. In many Eastern systems, particularly those derived from Taoist teachings, practitioners are taught to focus on the navel chakra during meditation to build up energy.

The meng mein chakra, or “gate of life,” is located on the back between the kidneys directly opposite the navel chakra. This is a key power center, for it acts as a pumping station for energy from the basic chakra. It controls the kidneys, adrenal glands, and upper urinary tract, as well as the blood pressure.
