I acquired the next info from the Divine in a therapeutic session a few years in the past. As I’ve labored with these chakras my understanding of them has grown. Persons are considerably acquainted with the eighth chakra, also referred to as the Soul Star or Interpersonal Chakra. Much less is understood about charkas 9 by means of twelve. Info varies with regards to the upper dimensions. That’s as a result of individuals are on totally different ranges of consciousness, or maintain totally different vibrational ranges. You’ll be able to solely see the reality primarily based on the place you’re looking from within the second.

The 5 Larger Chakras, eight – 12

These 5 greater charkas had been disconnected eons in the past & are actually being reconnected by means of our opening to Spirit. The method will be accelerated by means of an Ascension Initiation. The colours of the upper charkas varies from individual to individual & relies in your particular person goal or operate as spirit. Crystals: Herkimer & Tibetan Diamonds, double terminated Clear Quartz, Selenite, Indicolite (Blue Tourmaline in Quartz), Moldavite, Cavansite, Apophyllite, Prehnite.

The Eighth Chakra: Soul Star also referred to as the Transpersonal chakra, is roughly 18 inches above the pinnacle. That is the middle that holds all our contracts & agreements associated to this lifetime, karmic connections and so forth. An individual’s Soul Star overlaps with that of the individuals they’ve had long-term relationships or sexual encounters with, & they do not utterly disconnect on their very own, despite the fact that the couple could half bodily. It is essential, due to this fact, to have the ability to clear all these outdated relationship contracts, to be able to make method for brand spanking new potential relationships to come back to you extra simply, or to clear a pathway for the connection of your present, supporting it to develop extra totally.

It’s the middle of upper mind. It marks the realm the place the person soul merges with the Common Thoughts. It additionally marks the purpose the place the soul manifests into matter, into the person power physique. Word: C;

The Ninth Chakra: Intergalactic Gateway to the Divine and the BluePrint for this incarnation, & our Larger Emotional Middle. That is the place we maintain all the data associated to who we can be & are, on this present incarnation – our eye coloration, hair coloration, different options, character traits & what we’re going to be/do on this lifetime. This info turns into our DNA. We select all this earlier than we are available in to this incarnation. In a therapeutic, the BluePrint could seem fragmented, broken or fractured, break up, cracked, scattered and even dispersed. I labored with one lady who was extraordinarily depressed, and I had a way that she didn’t need to be right here. She confirmed this after I requested her. Her blueprint truly appeared dispersed or scattered & I imagine she would have tried to go away someway if she hadn’t had the session with me. She burst into tears after I requested new blueprint be introduced in & she felt utterly totally different after the session. Specifically she had an enormous launch after I cleared her ninth and eleventh chakras. Word: D

The Tenth Chakra: Interdimensional Gateway to the Divine is the gateway to all the opposite experiences (and dimensions) we have had all through the universe. This chakra is the place the soul fragments itself & scatters itself all through the universe, requiring ‘retrieval’. As soon as all facets are retrieved the particular person has full entry to all of the infinite prospects of who they have been and are–their ‘common archetypes’, for need of a greater time period. By bringing the essence of these facets or soul fragments into one chakra it provides us the flexibility to work with all our skills and talents. Most individuals solely have entry to between one and ten of their common archetypes, and that is fairly limiting as a result of we even have an infinite quantity. Word: E

The Eleventh chakra: Common Gateway to the Divine is the place duality begins, so to talk. It’s the ‘subject of overlap’ between Mild & Darkish is the place now we have all contracts and agreements belonging to our soul, whereas the eighth chakra is that this present incarnation’s contracts and agreements. Clearing the eleventh chakra is pivotal in bringing an individual into steadiness and permitting them to have full entry to their Divinity. I discover that blocks within the 11th chakra are probably to intervene with our Divine connection. That is the place our contracts with the occult, black magic & the Abyss are held. All of us have facets of ourselves which have skilled the shadow, as a result of that is a part of the Soul’s journey to discover Mild and Darkish, Order & Chaos. A part of the Divine plan for us is to expertise Duality–Mild and Darkish and all of the rays of the rainbow in between. Generally I discover that this chakra could be very imbalanced and will require a considerable infusion of Love, & maybe a ‘new’ chakra make by wanted. After I clear with this chakra individuals usually expertise an on the spot shift, they usually remark that they immediately really feel totally different, extra related to the Divine. Word: F

The Twelfth charka: Monadic Soul Stage Finishing the 5 greater charkas is the 12th chakra or the Monad is taken into account the individualized Spirit-Spark of the Divine & is usually referred to as the I’m Presence. The Monad is usually thought-about the Ascended Grasp Stage of the Soul. Every Monad or Spirit-Spark creates & is split into 12 pairs of Souls. Every pair are is aware of as TwinFlames. The Monad is usually thought-about the Ascended Grasp or Spirit stage of Soul. When being cleared I see the particular person’s TwinFlame in addition to their Divine Ray – their private taste of the Divine, in coloration frequency, which is their ‘operate’ as Spirit.

Right here is the BluePrint of the Soul, the Soul’s TwinFlame–twin-self or mirror reverse. Sometimes I see the souls of different important relationships right here. It is a connection the place there isn’t a differentiation between the Monad and the Divine. Usually I see that the 2 BluePrints–Soul’s & this incarnation–reflect each other. Generally the identical fragmentation is happening in each. If there’s a break up within the Blueprints, this notably pertains to a disconnection between the female and male facets of our being. Unify the male/feminine power inside us is a very powerful step to experiencing Unity.

If there’s a break up between the male/feminine facets, one half of the BluePrint could also be lacking. So the Monad is current however their TwinFlame is normally lacking. By bringing the BluePrint again collectively and making it entire, their TwinFlame is available in and the consumer has entry to working with their mirror-self. Word: F#

The next relies on the my very own numbering system to incorporate the opposite main chakras that I work with. The numbers are usually not essential, the place the chakras are & what they ‘do’ is:

The Thirteenth Chakra: Divine Coronary heart Area/ Star Tetrahedron Coronary heart Centre: is located half method between the Throat & Coronary heart Chakras, over the Thymus, that is the chakra of Co-Artistic Divine Consciousness, the acceptance of the Divine inside, Unconditional Love & compassion for self & others. Once we awaken this centre, wellness is doubtlessly an integral a part of our path. Life takes on that means & success & we expertise the enjoyment of Love, which pours forth from this chakra.

When totally activated this centre turns into one Unified Chakra. That is essential as a result of a unified chakra permits you then to align your bodily, emotional, psychological & religious our bodies, & to harmonize their power. Working with the unified chakra you unify the 5 greater & the ten decrease chakras into one in order that all of them operate in accordance with the frequency of unconditional love-based power flowing by means of this Divine-Coronary heart centre.

The Thymus gland controls the immune system & our price of ageing. It’s totally practical when the bodily physique (glands & organs) makes use of the thymus-governing imprint. The thymus naturally will get smaller as we age. By tapping the thymus day by day you retain it activated. It’s stated that sure initiations additionally maintain the thymus activated & that you’ll cease ageing after the initiation. Reiki is one such initiation, notably after Stage II.

When Divine circulation is extra direct & highly effective, we could transfer persistently by means of life in tune with the Intention of Spirit. Then as male (ideas) & feminine (feelings) are not antagonistic, correct hormone steadiness will start to be established. Shade: depends upon the soul’s goal; Word: F#

The Fourteenth Chakra: Quantum-Holographic Gateway to the Divine is positioned between the knees & is the place the Common Holographic Internet connects to the bodily. The Internet is sort of a freeway & connects us to everybody & every thing within the Universe. We regularly have inappropriate connections to others by means of the Internet & give our presents & skills away to cover ourselves. Therapeutic power will be directed by means of the Internet in such a method as to restore the Internet & thereby heal the ‘bodily’ body–which solely seems strong however is in reality power. If the bodily physique is broken the Internet can also be damaged–torn or damaged. Shade: Inexperienced-White Word: B

The Fifteenth Chakra: Bodily Gateway to the Divine is between the toes, on the stage of the ankles, & grounds & connects spirit into the bodily airplane. When this middle is activated we really feel related to Mom Earth & really feel one together with her power, & that of all life forms–referred to by Native People as All My Relations. Environmental consciousness resides right here & our need to assist our Earth Mom. Shade: Navy Blue; Word A

The Sixteenth Chakra: Earth Star is roughly 18 inches beneath our toes & when activated grounds our Spirit-Self totally into the bodily into the Infinite Second of the Current, the place we’re essentially the most highly effective – Spirit having a human expertise. We can’t be something apart from Spirit, though people are likely to ignore this Reality, & there’s nothing to search for besides throughout the self – to recollect we’re a bit of the Divine. Shade: Forest Inexperienced; Word A#

These 16 chakras, together with different main & minor chakras, make up a very powerful interface between our spirit & bodily our bodies. The chakras straight interface with our nervous system, therefore the significance of clearing each systems–physical & power our bodies. Once we observe our patterns (attitudes, values & beliefs) we see clues as to what chakras are out of steadiness. There are a lot of visualizing strategies to convey the charkras into steadiness & alignment & in my expertise they must be practiced day-after-day.

Bodily ache related to chakra imbalances could be very actual. Having labored with individuals as a shaman and healer for over 20 years, I’ve seen many situations the place bodily ache has been relieved or launched throughout a therapeutic session. I’ve discovered that we feature our previous predominately in our backs, which represents our past–literally behind us! Folks usually expertise a bodily sensation associated to a ‘damaged’ coronary heart. They might expertise ache round their mid spinal area between the shoulder blades, and upon visualizing their emotional coronary heart, ‘see’ both a picture of one thing defending their coronary heart (e.g., a field or cage) or ‘see’ it as damaged. When an individual has cash points and feels unsupported in some space of their life, they could expertise low again ache.

Over time my work has advanced into my very own modality, Micro-Fusion Holographic Therapeutic, which contains Shamanic therapeutic practices in addition to the numerous modalities I’ve educated in. I’ve discovered that the physique responds to this mild work by releasing & opening as much as the Spirit-Self in a really mild, but profound method.

On this closing a part of The Chakras, I needed to handle some questions & points which have come up ceaselessly with purchasers through the years, together with a number of the methods I’ve discovered simplest to maintain the chakras working in concord.

Shoppers have requested me to ‘shut my chakras’ on the finish of their session & it is a essential situation to handle. As a query this additionally comes up ceaselessly: “Ought to I maintain my chakras open or closed?” Shoppers have been informed by different healers that they should shut their chakras to be ‘protected’. And since my purchasers know I open all of the charkas & convey them into alignment & then give my purchasers a visualization for retaining their chakras open, it is pure that this creates confusion.

The chakras are in essence mini computer systems, gathering & storing info that then will get transferred to their interfaces, the bodily & spirit our bodies, by means of the nervous system & refined our bodies. Having your chakras closed is like making an attempt to function your pc with it switched off. Due to this fact it is not a safety, however relatively the other retaining you unprotected & open to detrimental or undesirable energies.

When your chakras are open & working in concord with each other, you might be speaking freely along with your Spirit-Self. Most significantly when your charkas are open, your coronary heart chakra is open, & you might be exuding Love, in & round you, & that is your biggest safety.

The following query I get requested essentially the most is, “How do I maintain my chakras open?” One factor I discover is that when the Earth Star is closed, or deactivated, all the opposite chakras are affected. Some chakras can be partially open however shifting sluggishly, some chakras can be closed. Conversely I’ve discovered that when the Earth Star is then opened, all chakras are affected in a optimistic method additionally.

With a view to undergo the right way to open & preserve your chakras, we first want to ascertain how they spin – by which route. There are 2 primary beliefs about how the chakra system spins – each are legitimate & work, if that is your perception. Usually, the way you had been first taught is the one which works for you. My Crystal Grasp taught me this manner: Every chakra spins the other way to the one subsequent to it, making a DNA-like spiral that locks them collectively, beginning with the Earth Star spinning counter clockwise. One other straightforward option to bear in mind it’s that every one the odd numbers spin clockwise, whereas the even numbers spin counter clockwise.

The way you examine that is with a pendulum, which can also be the way you clear & open the chakras. You’ll be able to maintain a pendulum over any chakra & ask to be proven the way it’s spinning. If a chakra is closed, the pendulum will do nothing. If it is solely partially open the pendulum will spin very slowly. When a chakra is totally open the pendulum will spin easily & moderately quick, in giant circle. As soon as you’ve got established in case your Earth Star is open or closed, & you’ve got checked your photo voltaic plexus & coronary heart chakras, you can begin realigning all of your chakras.

It is best to be sitting in a chair for this train, so you may have easy accessibility to all of your chakras. Beginning on the Earth Star, which is approx. 18 cm beneath your toes level your pendulum on the chakra. Lean ahead & relaxation you elbow on the knee. This gives you the proper place, on the stage of your ankles & ahead of them. Now, make the pendulum spin counter clockwise. Do that for about 30 seconds, till the pendulum spins simply by itself.

Proceed as much as your ankle chakra–clockwise, then knees – counter clockwise, first chakra on the base of the spine- counter clockwise, & so on, holding the pendulum over the world of every chakra till you get to the crown chakra on prime of your head, which spins clockwise.

I do know you are questioning at this level, how you are going to clear the upper charkas. Since intention is every thing, you are going to think about convey every one in all them down in entrance of you–out out of your physique at roughly the extent of your coronary heart chakra. Persevering with on with the eighth chakra–counterclockwise, & so on to the 12th chakra. Make every on spin till it could spin naturally by itself with out your help. Sit quietly for a couple of minutes on the finish, along with your eyes closed & discover how you’re feeling. Discover in case you really feel totally different to how you probably did earlier than you began this train. Do you’re feeling calmer, extra at peace?

One other train that you should utilize to open every chakra is to visualise each spinning in its applicable route & visualizing the suitable coloration for every. One other method is to carry a double terminated clear quartz crystal or selenite wand over every chakra when you’re utilizing your pendulum. Alternatively you’ll be able to maintain a Herkimer or Tibetan Diamond on the factors, between your thumb & index fingers. It will assist to clear every chakra of any undesirable energies extra completely. Ideally, Chakra balancing must be practiced day by day.
