The Catholic Church has enumerated what are called the cardinal sins. These are taken from the Old and New Testaments of the bible, especially the Book of Proverbs in the Old Testament and Galatians in the New Testament.
This article correlates these with the 7 system, and explains why they are important for mankind today.
THE SEVEN CARDINAL SINS
Pride = Seventh Energy Center
Pride means selfishness, arrogance, being full of oneself, ad thinking one knows something when one does not. it is the feeling that there is nothing above or beyond you.
This sin corresponds to the seventh energy center, located in the head, starting in the area of the pineal gland and extending upwards and slightly backward in most people in the shape of a narrow funnel. When this energy center is closed or only slightly open (meaning it is small), one suffers from pride.
Envy = Sixth energy center
Wrath or Anger = Fifth energy center
Avarice or Greed = Fourth energy center
Gluttony = Third energy center
Lust = Second energy center
Laziness or sloth = First energy center
THE SEVEN VIRTUES AND THE ENERGY CENTERS
Faith = Seventh energy center
Hope = Sixth energy center
Charity = Fifth energy center
Courage = fourth energy center
Temperance = Third energy center
Justice = Second energy center
Prudence = first energy center
WHY THESE ARE IMPORTANT
- Cultivating the virtues and avoiding the sins greatly speeds up development.
- The sins impair basic health in many cases. For example, overeating or gluttony usually leads to deranged digestion, impaired absorption of nutrients and often this unbalance the body chemistry.
While this one is obvious, some of the others are no less important. Anger, for example, throws a person into a fight-or-flight reaction, stimulating the sympathetic nervous system. This directly impairs elimination, digestion and the immune response.
The same goes for pride, envy and the others. Too much food, too much sex, too much running around, which is part of extravagance, all deplete the body.
In various ways, they upset the body and therefore contribute to a fight-of-flight tendency that impairs healing significantly.
- The sins upset a person psychologically. They do this by the same mechanisms at that explained above, namely by causing a lack of peace, unbalancing the nervous system, and, in most cases by eventually depleting the glands and organs of vital substances needed for health and healing.
