Living the Chakras

Liv­ing the Chakras

A Word From Brother Thomas

[dropcap]Dearest[/dropcap] broth­ers and sis­ters, I am Broth­er Thomas, your friend who lives on the oth­er side of aware­ness. We who work with the cos­mic rays are watch­ing, with great antic­i­pa­tion, those who have made it to where you are now. Slow­ly but sure­ly your spir­i­tu­al path has brought you to this lev­el of obtain­ment. We are excit­ed because we too remem­ber those times when we were no dif­fer­ent than you. Our advan­tage is that we know how quick­ly your growth will be once you decide in earnest that it shall be so! Nev­er under­es­ti­mate the pow­er of spir­i­tu­al inten­tion. For I, and oth­ers like me, will quick­ly come to your aid as you call out for divine guid­ance. Today I want to intro­duce an ener­getic way of liv­ing that has the poten­tial to trans­form your life and jump start you to the next lev­el of spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment. It is based upon the sacred ener­gy that flows from Source to Soul and from Soul to the phys­i­cal body via the sil­ver cord. We are talk­ing about the ener­gy of the chakras. But we are not talk­ing about Chakras in the same way that yoga teach­ers of your time speak of them. These are not new age buzz­words that we use – but some­thing far more impor­tant!

You are a Spiritual Being

By now, most on the mys­ti­cal path have come to real­ize this most impor­tant truth – you are spir­i­tu­al beings liv­ing in a phys­i­cal body, but many do not  know why this knowl­edge is so spe­cial. Here is the secret knowl­edge so many have not been taught. Before you incar­nate, there is a direct con­nec­tion between your soul body and source.  Once you live in phys­i­cal form, the spir­i­tu­al cir­cuit between Lux and Spir­i­tus (Soul and Source) is opened to allow the inser­tion of anoth­er enti­ty and then closed to com­plete the cir­cuit. This enti­ty is your phys­i­cal human form. It fil­ters all but a spe­cial­ized band of fre­quen­cies which define your human expe­ri­ence. While liv­ing in the body, a sig­nif­i­cant part of your soul’s ener­gy must pass through the phys­i­cal form before it may con­nect once again with Source. Just as humankind has learned to mas­ter physics and earth ener­gies in order to build com­mu­ni­ca­tion devices, so too, your soul must learn to mas­ter the ener­getic forces of the phys­i­cal form in order to secure­ly con­nect with Source. That, in a nut­shell, is what the life of a mys­tic is all about – learn­ing to mas­ter the ener­gy of the chakras to bet­ter com­mune with Source. That is what this les­son is about.

Chakras — The First Religion

Anoth­er lit­tle known secret is this: before there were orga­nized reli­gions, sav­iors, and gurus of all kinds, the first reli­gion (if we would call it that) was mas­ter­ing the ener­getic forces of the chakras. This alone is all that is need­ed to pro­duce a gold­en age for humankind. Here we learn how to be a ground­ed per­son, how to gain mas­tery over our emo­tions, how to be objec­tive, how to live lives of com­pas­sion and love, how to speak our truths respect­ful­ly, and how to con­tact the ancient wis­dom that resides on the oth­er side of our present aware­ness. Indeed, if humans today were to con­stant­ly mon­i­tor their ener­getic cen­ters and max­i­mize pos­i­tive ener­gy flow (or at the very least, trans­form all known neg­a­tive ener­gies into pos­i­tive ener­gy as it jour­neys through the chakras), there would be no need for laws, police, defense forces, reli­gions, or moral codes of any kind. This is because the ener­getic forces pro­vid­ed to each phys­i­cal enti­ty makes its pres­ence known through vibra­to­ry forces that can be imme­di­ate­ly per­ceived in the human phys­i­cal com­plex as ben­e­fi­cial or not. We not only have the abil­i­ty to mon­i­tor this ener­gy, we have the abil­i­ty to trans­form it into a high vibra­to­ry state. This is the state of ascen­dence!  This is what it means to live the chakas! I urge you to pay care­ful atten­tion to the infor­ma­tion you receive in this les­son and to prac­tice care­ful­ly all inner and out­er forms.

The Chakras

[dropcap]To[/dropcap] review, chakras are the major ener­gy cen­ters locat­ed along the mid­line of the body from sacrum to crown. Each of these ener­gy cen­ters is fed a par­tic­u­lar fre­quen­cy of ener­gy by the sil­ver cord and is attached to sub­tle bod­ies locat­ed just out­side of the human phys­i­cal form. It is con­ve­nient to rep­re­sent­ed these ener­gies by a par­tic­u­lar col­or. Please note, the col­ors assigned to the chakras are the results of gen­er­a­tions of received knowl­edge span­ning thou­sands of years. In a very real sense, one could say that the assign­ment of these col­ors are arbi­trary – much like we might col­or code our email to rep­re­sent dif­fer­ent clas­si­fi­ca­tions of infor­ma­tion. While col­ors are impor­tant, it is just as impor­tant to remem­ber that it is our inten­tion to focus upon the spir­i­tu­al ener­gies rep­re­sent­ed by these col­ors that mat­ter most. Even so, there is much intu­itive wis­dom in the assign­ment of these col­ors.

Frequency Waveforms

The col­ors range from the low­est and longest per­ceived fre­quen­cy wave­forms. These include the infra reds, to the high­est and short­est wave forms, the ultra vio­lets. The ancients wise­ly assigned each vibra­to­ry state a spec­tral col­or to a place on the human body cor­re­spond­ing to an action, or ener­gy, com­mon­ly under­tak­en by humans. Some of these make per­fect sense to most of us. For instance, the col­or blue is asso­ci­at­ed with the throat chakra which is respon­si­ble for com­mu­ni­ca­tion.  Some, like the solar plexus, are less obvi­ous. Most peo­ple in today’s cul­ture would not intu­itive­ly asso­ciate this chakra with the realms of think­ing and log­ic.

Human Behaviors

Each of these col­ors is ranked from low to high fre­quen­cy and asso­ci­at­ed with a human behav­ior tra­di­tion­al­ly ranked from low­est to high­est in terms of spir­i­tu­al aspi­ra­tion and devel­op­ment. Notice, we use the word tra­di­tion­al­ly. The ancients would argue that the col­or red, which is asso­ci­at­ed with pas­sion, con­nec­tion to the earth, and phys­i­cal ener­gy, is a low­er form of spir­i­tu­al­i­ty than the crown chakra, which rep­re­sents spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment and trans­for­ma­tion. While we under­stand the log­ic behind this think­ing, we approach it dif­fer­ent­ly.

Levels of Development

Each vibra­to­ry fre­quen­cy and each lev­el of spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment, no mat­ter how low­ly we humans may per­ceive it to be, has a vital­i­ty that is impor­tant for us. First grade is just as impor­tant as col­lege. True enough, we don’t remain in first grade for­ev­er, but we should respect the lessons we learned there as a part of our vital edu­ca­tion­al foun­da­tion. The same is true in the spir­i­tu­al realm. All vibra­to­ry states are wor­thy of our explo­ration, though some will be drawn more to one col­or than anoth­er. Some on the spir­i­tu­al path might assume (usu­al­ly because of ear­li­er mis­guid­ed pro­gram­ming) that a spir­i­tu­al aspi­rant would have lit­tle or noth­ing to do with the chakra asso­ci­at­ed with sex­u­al­i­ty (many paths encour­age their stu­dents to just ignore them alto­geth­er). But we believe the col­or orange, which rep­re­sents our emo­tion­al and sex­u­al vital­i­ty, is just as impor­tant to human thriv­ing and expe­ri­ence as say, the heart chakra. Indeed, a mys­tic who does not respect their emo­tion­al and sex­u­al ener­gies will find it next to impos­si­ble to get along with the human fam­i­ly, much less advance along the mys­ti­cal path! The way we treat our­selves and oth­ers emo­tion­al­ly and sex­u­al­ly is foun­da­tion­al to hap­py liv­ing and spir­i­tu­al advance­ment. We believe it is mis­guid­ed to make our emo­tions and sex­u­al expe­ri­ences “off-lim­its” as some paths do. We believe all of these ener­gies should be skill­ful­ly cul­ti­vat­ed and used. Under­stand­ing, respect, and bal­ance are key. A list of chakras and assigned col­ors are giv­en below.

Extra-dimensional Connections

These sub­tle col­or rays ener­gize the organs and the var­i­ous extra-dimen­sion­al bod­ies attached to the human body. There are spir­i­tu­al exer­cis­es we can do using these col­ors uti­liz­ing the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion in both the inner and out­er forms. For instance, when we need heal­ing, we might con­duct a chakra med­i­ta­tion and base it on the col­or asso­ci­at­ed with the need we have iden­ti­fied. Or, if we are prepar­ing for a big meet­ing at work or school, we might med­i­tate upon the col­ors blue and indi­go as we men­tal­ly speak, or say aloud, affir­ma­tions of our abil­i­ty to expert­ly exer­cise our cre­ativ­i­ty and self-expres­sion.  There are oth­er approach­es as well. For instance, when we are emo­tion­al­ly upset, we might focus upon bal­anc­ing the orange chakra (emo­tion­al expres­sion), med­i­tate upon the green heart chakra for peace and peace and har­mo­ny, and con­clude with a brief med­i­ta­tion upon the blue throat chakra for assis­tance in self-expres­sion and speak­ing our truth. These are but a few of the many thou­sands of inner and out­er forms we might use to draw upon the ener­gy of the chakras.

A Simple Chakra Healing Inner Form

The basic approach to all of the chakra med­i­ta­tions involves sit­ting in a med­i­ta­tive state, pro­ject­ing the desired col­or upon our men­tal view screen, as we “breathe” the desired col­ors in and out of our bod­ies. If we want to do more, we might also ask our angels, spir­its, and guides for spe­cial gifts and under­stand­ing as we med­i­tate upon each col­or. There are many vari­a­tions of this basic approach.  For instance, we might focus on ener­giz­ing and heal­ing one par­tic­u­lar chakra by bathing the desired chakra loca­tion with the appro­pri­ate light. Keep­ing in mind the impor­tance of ethics, as described in an ear­li­er les­son, we might prac­tice a form of ener­getic heal­ing for some­one who needs it by send­ing the per­son in need these heal­ing rays. In this short spir­i­tu­al exer­cise, we will teach you an inner-form designed to bring more heal­ing ener­gy into the phys­i­cal body. It is a form of self-heal­ing.

  1. Relax, ground and cen­ter your body in the method your pre­fer, or as described in the lessons on the inner forms
  2. Once your body is relaxed, and you feel ready to focus your ener­gy, pre­pare your body to receive the cos­mic rays by imag­in­ing your phys­i­cal form being bathed from head to toe with the col­or of light you desire.
  3. Imag­ine your cho­sen ray of light draw­ing itself to you like a thick fog­gy cloud. Or, imag­ine a won­der­ful foamy cream that is filled with the ener­gy of your cho­sen cos­mic ray that cov­ers all of your body – absorb­ing the ener­gy wher­ev­er it is need­ed.
    1. If this is dif­fi­cult to visu­al­ize, try instead to imag­ine a mas­sive and com­fort­able coat, filled with cos­mic ray ener­gy, which is draped round your body cov­er­ing it all the way to the ground.  Imag­ine the ener­gy per­me­at­ing and fill­ing your body.  As it does so, it fills you with com­fort­ing and ben­e­fi­cial ener­gy. 
  4. As you draw in the breath, allow a bright shin­ing cos­mic ray of light from heav­en to enter your body from the crown chakra and stream all the way down to your toes. On the out breath, imag­ine the reverse. As you breathe out, Moth­er Earth sends you the cos­mic ray through your feet – streams it through the body – and exits the ray through the crown chakra in a pow­er­ful stream into the heav­ens. 
  5. Cre­ate a rhythm of breath­ing in and breath­ing out. Do this exer­cise as long as is com­fort­able.
  6. When you con­clude, thank your guides and mas­ters for the bless­ings of this ray.

Review

Source ener­gy is dis­trib­uted through the Spir­i­tus Lumine, to the Lux Ani­mae, and then feed via the sil­ver cord to the human body. There are sev­en pri­ma­ry ener­gy cen­ters whose loca­tions are: base of the spine, gen­i­tal area, solar plexus, heart, throat, between the eye­brows, and crown of the head. Each of cen­ters process ener­gy dif­fer­ent­ly. If we do not learn how to direct our con­scious aware­ness on these ener­gy cen­ters, our lives suf­fer. Learn­ing how to man­age these ener­gies was the “reli­gion” before there were reli­gions. If humankind were able to skill­ful­ly man­age each of these sev­en ener­gy cen­ters, there would be lit­tle need for most laws, rules and reg­u­la­tions. Study­ing the chakras, and learn­ing how to chan­nel their ener­gies, is a way of life that helps the mys­tic rid them­selves of point­less dra­ma. This peace­ful exis­tence rais­es our vibra­tion and makes it pos­si­ble for the mys­tic us to com­mune their angels, spir­its and guides.

  1. We like the expla­na­tion of the chakras pro­vid­ed by the folks at Self-Real­iza­tion Fel­low­ship. This video is one of four that explains how the man­age­ment of each chakra con­tributes to a har­mo­nious life. The speak­er, Asha Nayaswa­mi, is a very qui­et pre­sen­ter – but don’t let that fool you. There is real gold here.
