I obtained 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 conversant in the eighth chakra, often known as the Soul Star or Interpersonal Chakra. Much less is thought about charkas 9 by way of twelve. Data varies relating to the upper dimensions. That’s as a result of persons are on completely different ranges of consciousness, or maintain completely different vibrational ranges. You may solely see the reality primarily based on the place you’re looking from within the second.

The 5 Greater Chakras, eight – 12

These 5 increased charkas have been disconnected eons in the past & at the moment are being reconnected by way of our opening to Spirit. The method might be accelerated by way 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 often known as the Transpersonal chakra, is roughly 18 inches above the top. 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 folks they’ve had long-term relationships or sexual encounters with, & they do not fully disconnect on their very own, though the couple might half bodily. It is essential, subsequently, to have the ability to clear all these previous relationship contracts, with a view to make means for brand spanking new potential relationships to return to you extra simply, or to clear a pathway for the connection of your present, supporting it to develop extra absolutely. The eight chakra can be the middle of detachment, staying within the current second, unconditional belief, acceptance of intuitive steerage & the flexibility to discern phantasm. It’s the heart 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 vitality physique. Observe: C;

The Ninth Chakra: Intergalactic Gateway to the Divine and the BluePrint for this incarnation, & our Greater Emotional Heart. That is the place we maintain all the knowledge associated to who we shall be & are, on this present incarnation – our eye shade, hair shade, 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 to this incarnation. In a therapeutic, the BluePrint might seem fragmented, broken or fractured, cut up, cracked, scattered and even dispersed. I labored with one girl who was extraordinarily depressed, and I had a way that she didn’t wish to be right here. She confirmed this after I requested her. Her blueprint really appeared dispersed or scattered & I consider she would have tried to depart in some way if she hadn’t had the session with me. She burst into tears after I requested new blueprint be introduced in & she felt fully completely different after the session. Specifically she had an enormous launch after I cleared her ninth and eleventh chakras. Observe: 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 points are retrieved the individual 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 points or soul fragments into one chakra it offers us the flexibility to work with all our skills and skills. 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. Observe: E

The Eleventh chakra: Common Gateway to the Divine is the place duality begins, so to talk. It’s the ‘discipline of overlap’ between Gentle & Darkish is the place we have now 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 almost certainly 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 points of ourselves which have skilled the shadow, as a result of that is a part of the Soul’s journey to discover Gentle and Darkish, Order & Chaos. A part of the Divine plan for us is to expertise Duality–Gentle and Darkish and all of the rays of the rainbow in between. Typically I discover that this chakra could be very imbalanced and should require a considerable infusion of Love, & maybe a ‘new’ chakra make by wanted. Once I clear with this chakra folks usually expertise an immediate shift, they usually remark that they all of the sudden really feel completely different, extra linked to the Divine. Observe: F

The Twelfth charka: Monadic Soul Stage Finishing the 5 increased charkas is the 12th chakra or the Monad is taken into account the individualized Spirit-Spark of the Divine & is usually known as the I’m Presence. The Monad is usually thought of 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 of the Ascended Grasp or Spirit degree of Soul. When being cleared I see the individual’s TwinFlame in addition to their Divine Ray – their private taste of the Divine, in shade 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 is no such thing as a differentiation between the Monad and the Divine. Usually I see that the 2 BluePrints–Soul’s & this incarnation–reflect each other. Typically the identical fragmentation is occurring in every one. If there’s a cut up within the Blueprints, this significantly pertains to a disconnection between the female and male points of our being. Unify the male/feminine vitality inside us is a very powerful step to experiencing Unity.

If there’s a cut up between the male/feminine points, 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 complete, their TwinFlame is available in and the shopper has entry to working with their mirror-self. Observe: F#

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

The Thirteenth Chakra: Divine Coronary heart Area/ Star Tetrahedron Coronary heart Centre: is located half means 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. After we awaken this centre, wellness is probably an integral a part of our path. Life takes on which means & achievement & we expertise the enjoyment of Love, which pours forth from this chakra.

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

The Thymus gland controls the immune system & our price of ageing. It’s absolutely useful 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 every day you retain it activated. It’s stated that sure initiations additionally hold the thymus activated & that you’ll cease ageing after the initiation. Reiki is one such initiation, significantly after Stage II.

When Divine movement is extra direct & highly effective, we might transfer constantly by way 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. Colour: depends upon the soul’s goal; Observe: 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 & all the pieces within the Universe. We regularly have inappropriate connections to others by way of the Internet & give our presents & skills away to cover ourselves. Therapeutic vitality might be directed by way of the Internet in such a means as to restore the Internet & thereby heal the ‘bodily’ body–which solely seems strong however is in reality vitality. If the bodily physique is broken the Internet can be damaged–torn or damaged. Colour: Inexperienced-White Observe: B

The Fifteenth Chakra: Bodily Gateway to the Divine is between the toes, on the degree of the ankles, & grounds & connects spirit into the bodily aircraft. When this heart is activated we really feel linked to Mom Earth & really feel one along with her vitality, & that of all life forms–referred to by Native People as All My Relations. Environmental consciousness resides right here & our want to help our Earth Mom. Colour: Navy Blue; Observe A

The Sixteenth Chakra: Earth Star is roughly 18 inches under our toes & when activated grounds our Spirit-Self absolutely into the bodily into the Infinite Second of the Current, the place we’re probably 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 may be nothing to search for besides inside the self – to recollect we’re a chunk of the Divine. Colour: Forest Inexperienced; Observe 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 & vitality our bodies. After 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 carry the charkras into steadiness & alignment & in my expertise they have to be practiced every single day.

Bodily ache related to chakra imbalances could be very actual. Having labored with folks 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 supply our previous predominately in our backs, which represents our past–literally behind us! Individuals 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.

Through the years my work has developed into my very own modality, Micro-Fusion Holographic Therapeutic, which includes Shamanic therapeutic practices in addition to the numerous modalities I’ve educated in. I’ve discovered that the physique responds to this light work by releasing & opening as much as the Spirit-Self in a really light, but profound means.

On this closing a part of The Chakras, I needed to deal with some questions & points which have come up incessantly with shoppers over time, together with a few of the methods I’ve discovered best to maintain the chakras working in concord.

Shoppers have requested me to ‘shut my chakras’ on the finish of their session & this can be a essential subject to deal with. As a query this additionally comes up incessantly: “Ought to I hold my chakras open or closed?” Shoppers have been advised by different healers that they should shut their chakras to be ‘protected’. And since my shoppers know I open all of the charkas & carry them into alignment & then give my shoppers a visualization for holding 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 way of the nervous system & refined our bodies. Having your chakras closed is like attempting to function your pc with it switched off. Due to this fact it is not a safety, however moderately the other holding you unprotected & open to detrimental or undesirable energies.

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

The subsequent query I get requested probably the most is, “How do I hold 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 shall be partially open however transferring sluggishly, some chakras shall be closed. Conversely I’ve discovered that when the Earth Star is then opened, all chakras are affected in a optimistic means additionally.

As a way to undergo the way to open & preserve your chakras, we first want to determine how they spin – wherein course. There are 2 foremost beliefs about how the chakra system spins – each are legitimate & work, if that is your perception. Usually, the way you have been first taught is the one which works for you. My Crystal Grasp taught me this fashion: Every chakra spins the wrong 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 simple option to keep in mind it’s that each one the odd numbers spin clockwise, whereas the even numbers spin counter clockwise.

The way you test that is with a pendulum, which can be the way you clear & open the chakras. You may 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 absolutely 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 might have quick access to all of your chakras. Beginning on the Earth Star, which is approx. 18 cm under your toes level your pendulum on the chakra. Lean ahead & relaxation you elbow on the knee. This provides you with the suitable place, on the degree 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 realm of every chakra till you get to the crown chakra on high 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 all the pieces, you are going to think about carry every one among 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 might probably 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 the event you really feel completely 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 use to open every chakra is to visualise every one spinning in its applicable course & visualizing the suitable shade for every. One other means is to carry a double terminated clear quartz crystal or selenite wand over every chakra when you’re utilizing your pendulum. Alternatively you possibly can maintain a Herkimer or Tibetan Diamond on the factors, between your thumb & index fingers. This can assist to clear every chakra of any undesirable energies extra totally. Ideally, Chakra balancing must be practiced every day.
