There is some ancient information about the meditation and chakras, so as one biomedical engineer I have one background about the emotional thermals photo, and like to find out some image position correlation between body emotional thermal photo and 7 chakras area.

I have tried to find the relation between the location of high or well-detectable somatization feeling in body by using the hot spot or high contrast colors parts in the similar area of main seven chakra patterns (here) and emotional thermal photo (here).

So i have tried to create one Primary connection between the two above photos, by below photo:

enter image description here

Also, I edited this question which was in this form before and now i summarized it to be more focused.

If possible, I like to ask about the scientific evidence in papers or suggesting some methods for better searching the scholar papers about the below topic:

Do thermal (infrared) photos of subjects experiencing emotions match predictions from Chakra mappings?

Update 1:

Based of the Chris Rogers notification via his comment, and the blow information(link), the solar chakra must be connected to the emotion of self-confidence, happiness and joy:

It is emotionally associated with self-confidence, happiness and joy. A healthy solar plexus chakra will help us feel strong in personal power, have a sense of “knowing”, and a good sense of belonging. You will feel a sense of peace and harmony with yourself, and life in general.

So this means the above photo don't show this kind of meaningfull relation. So in this step i am thinking in testing others chakra meaning for checking all 7 chakras.

And if it is not showing no meaningful relation, it could check the term of opened chakra, which means it needs the emotions thermal photo of two groups:

  • 1st: is the group with label of not opened chakra level ( such as not opened solar chakras), but I don't know these data are available on internet or not?!)
  • 2nd : the group of persons which recognized as opened chakra ( such as the Opened solar chakras )

So if possible i like to, have some comment or answer for checking the others chakra emotional meaning and testing that emotional thermal photo is showing hot spot on that location or not?

And if the question is not off topic, it could go to next step for finding or taking thermal photo from the two group which is described above.


  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to psych.SE. There doesn't seem to be a question here. Please ask an actual question. Note that both Chakras and Freudian psychology are outdated practices considered pseudoscience today. As such, I would recommend keeping presumptions about validity to a minimum. For example, you might ask: "Do thermal (infrared) photos of subjects experiencing emotions match predictions from Chakra mappings?" (hint: the answer is no) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ As I keep saying each time @ArnonWeinberg brings up "pseudoscience of Freud" his theories may be considered pseudoscience by some but not everyone and to cut these questions out of this site would be cutting a large proportion of psychology out, potentially killing the psychology side of this site. Keep asking about Freud, but make sure your questions are framed within the psychodynamic studies. $\endgroup$ Jan 13 at 16:04
  • $\begingroup$ Chakras however are not within the scope of neuroscience and psychology, so that is not going to go far here $\endgroup$ Jan 13 at 16:06
  • $\begingroup$ @Arnon_Weinberg and others, i have updated question and i guess it is more focused, now. $\endgroup$ Jan 13 at 16:39

    $\begingroup$ You took out the tiny part of your question which was on topic and left chakras in which is off topic unless you can show a strong connection to your question. For a start, your heat map for fear shows high concentration in the heart area, yet those who follow chakras believe emotions like this are connected to the solar plexus so that debunks your idea before you ask the question. $\endgroup$ Jan 13 at 16:52
