If yesterday’s idea holds true, then we should be able to clear our chakras to heal these areas of inner division. For those who don’t know what the chakras are, they are centers or vortexes in the subtle energy field of the body, coinciding also with density of nerve nodes. Most ancient cultures had teachings of the chakras – they have been as prevalent in the Yoga of the Orient as in the Peruvian/Incan teachings of indigenous South America. In the Christian tradition they are hidden within the seven seals of the Book of Revelations. They show up in the Sephirot of the Kabbalah and in the nine worlds of Yggdrasil. So what do they look like?
The most common model is the Yogic, so I will go with that one for now. The Chakra energy flows up and down the spine from the Root Chakra at the tail bone, to the Sacral Chakra about four inches below the belly button, the Solar Plexus located just below the Xiphoid process at the joining of the rib cage, the Heart Chakra, the Throat chakra, the Third Eye chakra and the Crown over the head. The Root and Crown chakras point downward and upward respectively, linking our body to the Earth on a vertical axis and to the three worlds of shamanism, the under world, the middle world and the upper world. The other chakras drink from the atmosphere around us on a horizontal basis, connecting us to waking consciousness and the affairs of daily life in the middle world.
Each chakra holds its own conscious awareness, which is like the awareness of conscious awakening. And more on this I will say tomorrow.
