Beyond the Seven Chakras

(A discourse on the 8th Chakra)

Seven ChakrasIn a recent article we discussed the seven major Chakras and their impact on our physical bodies. In this article, we will discuss the 8th Chakra, a spiritual Chakra which is located above the 7th or Crown Chakra.

The 8th Chakra is the energy center of divine love, of spiritual compassion and spiritual selflessness. It is also the Chakra that holds one’s karmic residue – those energy patterns that one has held on to for more than one lifetime. When the eighth center begins to open up and expand, a new spiritual awareness is set in motion. The individual begins to sense him/herself as part of an extended community of beings. This Chakra is the gateway to other ideas, concepts and abilities which enable the individual to achieve advanced out of body projection, spiritual perception, and spiritual wisdom.

This center is the gateway to your Self as it expands past this dimension. Thus, this Chakra is the last energy center that holds anything human within it. It, therefore, becomes the center of human cleansing and the releasing of patterns that are lifetimes old and worn out. These patterns are the last of what holds you to the reincarnation system and your humanness and keeps you from uniting with higher powers, beings, and ideas. When this center opens up, you not only begin to take on an awareness to this larger community of energies, but you begin to shed those patterns that have kept you rooted to the planet. This shedding is a natural process as once this center is awakened, the individual is ready to let go of his humanity and grasp onto something larger and divine.

Due to the karmic connection, when this center opens, the experience is not without duress. The extent of the duress is directly connected to what and how much the individual has to let go of. Once the Chakra opens, the individual becomes aware of himself as part of the limitless universe. Information on new levels of awareness and intuition present themselves; old ideas about one’s self and the planet must be discarded. All these factors contribute to the inherent stress. In addition, at the same time one is dealing with all this new information, new psychic abilities appear.

Because karma is involved, any kind of healing that can bring out and clear past life trauma or patterns will help the individual. However, as soon as these old patterns are cleared, there will be an acceleration in spiritual abilities. Mantras are very important when working with these spiritual energy centers because a mantra will unlock the energy needed to complete a healing on these levels and at the same time provide the momentum for the individual to be able to accept his new found talents.

The 7th Chakra traditionally is the Chakra that connects you to your higher self and to divinity. In a sense this is true as the 7th center contains the guide to what you need to do to connect with higher energies and to evolve yourself. It isn’t actually until the 8th Chakra begins to open up and become active that the individual can avail himself of these programs and of the ability to ascend. Until then, the programs remain dormant and the individual will sense only a tentative connection to the divine through the 7th Chakra. This vague quality to divinity is the reason why, when a person finally does open up the 8th center, a true sense of divinity sets in. The perception of what was once a vague notion now becomes a full blown reality.

If a person is trying to evolve past the human condition, but for some reason can not, the 8th center is probably being held closed by some fear. The fact is, any time an individual reaches to develop some extraordinary ability, an ability that goes beyond themselves or others or puts them into contact with the divine community, it shows that the person is ready to advance and open up these higher centers. If a real fear exists here, the 8th Chakra will remain closed, and it may be necessary to delve deeply to expose just what the fear entails, so that the Chakra can open up and the ascending individual can expand. A thorough 8th Chakra clearing is necessary. Also the 8th Chakra holds much karmic residue which the newly ascending individual will have to shed. If the karma that has to be cleared is very old, repaid karma that just is lying around, it would naturally clear over time. However, a clearing process can be quickened by a professional healer or by doing personal work on the 8th Chakra in the form of repetition of the basic mantra: “Ma – Ah – Zot” that translates for those of you interested, to “What is this?” – surely a question we can all ask about the 8th Chakra, a subject beyond this 3-dimensional world.

Gemstone Essences and Chakras

Semiprecious gemstones - round color spectrumLet’s explore which gemstones and their essences relate to the seven chakras.

The chakras are the energy centers surrounding the body that activate the reception and transmission of Life Force (prana, chi). Connecting with these centers and opening the chakras assist in the journey toward self-realization. The embodiment of spirit rests within the crown chakra waiting to be truly discovered. Within the root chakra, resides the Serpent goddess, Kundalini. As the other six chakras are explored in meditation, Kundalini rises up to connect with Spirit and gives the gift of total enlightenment.

It seems only appropriate that we begin the enumeration with the Heart Chakra.

Emerald activates the release of emotionally suppressed trauma and brings new awareness of the heart and soul. It will stimulate dreams, enhance psychic and clairvoyant faculties and during meditation, increase deeper spiritual insight. The heart is strengthened to deal with the extra toxins that flow into the system during a cleansing, particularly from a discharge of toxicity in the muscles. Emerald opens the potential of divinity within and brings the gift of prosperity, LOVE, kindness, tranquility and patience. An emerald essence strengthens the heart, liver, kidneys, immune and nervous systems; its properties aid the healing and the function of the pancreas and the spleen.

Garnet is associated with the Root Chakra, the creative force of manifestation. An essence of garnet will stimulate Kundalini. It will assist in the alignment of all the chakras; aid the release of stored stress in muscle tissue; and raise the conscious onto higher spiritual levels. Garnet has the ability to help expand awareness and bring creative ideas to fruition on the physical plane; enhances loving energy and compassionate understanding; and stimulates the Root Chakra to provide a free energy flow through the entire spinal column. Garnet brings healing energy to all disorders of the physical structure as well as to the lungs and circulatory system. It can help to repair and prevent damage to the RNA/DNA structure. Garnet has also been used to equalize sexual energies and enhance the assimilation of vitamins and minerals.

Carnelian influences all aspects of the Sacral Chakra including primal feelings, sexuality, desire, procreation and pleasure. At the same time, carnelian governs the utilization of creative force and directs self toward divine devotion. This gemstone carries the ability to awaken latent creative potential; brings one the ability to release sorrow, fear and rage and stimulates physical energy and willpower. Carnelian is beneficial in the treatment of gall and kidney stones, viral infections and pollen related allergies.

Tiger’s Eye and its connection to the Solar Plexus Chakra generates the positive use of personal power and will. It heightens sensation during astral travel; facilitates the benefit of psychic awareness and attainment; and brings a newfound ability to center and ground scattered energy. Stubbornness quickly transforms into compassion in the presence of tiger’s eye. Bringing balance to the energy of yin and yang and both hemispheres of the brain, the stone helps in the recall of past lives and brings the gift of abundance in our present existence. Tiger’s Eye is beneficial for the organs situated above the navel and below the chest – the pancreas, liver, digestive system including the stomach and the autonomic nervous system.

Lapis Lazuli will stimulate, activate and cleanse the Throat Chakra. It is a thought amplifier that brings increased personal expression and more articulate speech while speaking in public. Lapis Lazuli creates a sense of strength, vitality and virility; assists in bringing about inner discipline; effectively treats inflammations such as tonsillitis and extends to the esophagus, larynx, and upper bronchial passages. Anxiety and tension are released because the thyroid is stimulated. The lymphatic system, pituitary and thymus are invigorated by Lapis Lazuli and it is effective in assisting the removal of petrochemicals in the body.

Amethyst and its effect on the Third Eye Chakra generates clearing of the subconscious mind for the recognition of divine perfection in all aspects of being and gives one the ability to channel abstract thought. Amethyst stimulates psychic ability, clarity and inspiration. This gemstone strengthens will, expands cosmic awareness and helps balance mental disorders. Amethyst stimulates the pituitary gland strengthening the entire endocrine and immune systems.

Quartz Crystal enhances the Crown Chakra and allows for the identification with the immortal part of one’s self. It balances and purifies energy within body and mind. It will enhance inner vision and clairvoyance along with giving aid toward communication with the Higher Self and Spirit Guides. Quartz crystal improves circulation and strengthens the central nervous system. It aids the body in regeneration of cellular tissue and will stimulate dynamic activity in the function of the brain.

As a general rule, use 3-5 drops of the essence or elixir under the tongue 3 to 5 times a day three weeks on, one week off. Depending on your sensitivity, you may begin to feel the effects of the essence within a few hours, on up to the end of the first week. Some people may move into the second three week period before effects are experienced. A three month period for each chosen essence is sufficient for the influences to be integrated in to your ethereal and physical body. Most elixirs are more pronounced if taken singularly, but some, such as quartz, are fine when combined with other gems.

There are various gemstones that relate to each of the seven basic Chakras. Inasmuch as each Chakra is connected to one of the colors of the rainbow, gemstones in that Chakra’s color have the ability to influence all aspects unique to that particular energy point.

To learn more about the Chakras and how they influence one’s life force, or to have your Chakras aligned and your Aura cleansed, make an appointment with any of the psychic readers or psychic healers at the Center for the New Age. Their psychic abilities will amaze you!

Introduction to Chakras

Lotus meditation and seven chakrasChakra is the Sanskrit word for “wheel.” Our chakras are invisible energy centers, vortices of spinning energy along the center core of our bodies, interfacing between the physical and subtle (intangible) worlds.

Some people can “see” or “feel” the chakras . You may even be able to do this yourself. Lie on your back and pass your hand over your front midline, a few inches above your body. You may feel the chakras as intense concentrations of energy; you may even feel the actual spin.

There are seven major chakras along the spine. Each chakra gives off one of the seven colors of the rainbow. Thus, when all the chakras are open and a person is vibrant and healthy, all the colors of the rainbow appear in the electromagnetic energy field, the aura, that surrounds the body. Each of the seven chakras is associated with a primary function and has an anatomical correspondent that is influenced by the chakra itself. Therefore, the chakras, although subtle in their energy, directly affect various conditions of our physical manifestion. You can relate the Chakras with the Healing properties of Colors we are introducing in other Newsletters. This will help you expand your awareness and understanding of the subtle energies of the Chakras.

There are varying degrees of openness which relates to the amount of energy flowing through the chakra. When fully open, the chakra is charged with energy; when closed, there is very little energy moving through it. When the chakras are too receptive (open) or too non-receptive (closed) to energy planes, imbalance and pain are inevitable. By knowing which chakras are open or closed, we are better able to understand ourselves. It is through the chakras that we are able to receive and transmit social, sexual, mental and spiritual energy.

The first chakra is the Base or Root Chakra. It is located at the base of the spine. Its color is red. This is the center of manifestation. The Root Chakra gives us the energy to succeed; it is the center of survival and security. Its energy relates to the nervous system, male reproductive organs, bladder, spine and circulation.

The second chakra is called the Sacral Chakra. It is located about two inches below the navel, just above the genitals. Its color is orange. The chakra is the center of emotions, intuition and how we relate to others, or relationships. It is also the center for female sexuality and directly affects reproduction.

The third chakra is called the Navel Chakra or Solar Plexus center. It is located below the breastbone or sometimes shown at the navel. Its color is yellow. This chakra is the center of personal power, will, creativity. It is your “gut instinct.” In the martial arts, the third chakra is considered the center of chi (see Feng Shui), the life force energy. Thus, this chakra relates to physical abilities and athletic prowess. The energy here is associated with the adrenals, digestive organs, diaphragm, liver, gall bladder and pancreas.

The fourth chakra is the Heart Chakra. Its color is green. The Heart Chakra is the center of love and compassion, for ourselves and others. It relates to the heart, lungs and immune system, and manifests in our bodily circulation.

The fifth chakra is the Throat Chakra. Its color is blue. It is the seat of communication and expression. Through his chakra, we speak our truth. The energy here also affects the thyroid and the ears. An open Throat Chakra allows us to speak, sing, scream and cry whenever necessary.

The sixth chakra is located between and above the eyebrows and is often called the Third Eye. This is our psychic center as well as our intuitive center. Its color is indigo; its energy affects the pituitary glands, and our nervous system. This is our “sixth sense.”

The seventh chakra is the Crown Chakra. Its color is violet. It is our center of spirituality, wisdom and understanding. An open Crown Chakra allows us to realize oneness with everything around us; enlightenment. When we have inspiration, it is due to the energies of the Crown Chakra.

Each of us needs a little fine tuning of our chakras every now and then. Crystal bowls imbued with a specific tonal quality as well as Tibetan bowls and bells can be used for this purpose. Some energy work or crystal healing can prove invaluable in balancing our chakras and enhancing our overall physical and emotional health. Crystals are the keys that open or subdue the chakras with each chakra using discrete crystals to accomplish these tasks. However, to balance the upper four chakras in general, use Chinese fluorite. To bring calming, peaceful love energy to relationships, choose rose quartz . If your goal is to enhance your psychic abilities, azurite is one of the crystals to clear and stimulate the chakras towards this end.

What is the Kundalini energy?

kundalini, energyThere is a special form of energy within every individual. This energy has infinite capabilities; however, it has no form or dimension. It has been conceived in different manners under different names in various traditions of the world. In the Hindu tradition, it is “Kundalini,” the transformative energy that awakens consciousness; the primordial dormant energy, coiled as a serpent at the base of the spine since birth, awaiting the stimulus to unfold its potential.

There is a set of three nerves which connect the base of the spine to the brain. When Kundalini awakens, it rises through the central nerve to the brain, which causes what seems like an explosion in the brain, since the dormant areas begin to blossom like flowers. All happenings in the spiritual life and all outstanding works in any walk of life – poetry, painting, writing, music, war, science, art philosophy etc. –are related to the awakening of Kundalini. It is the creative energy, the energy of self-expression.

The awakening of Kundalini causes a transformation and transcendence in life. There is a change in the mind, priorities, and attachments. A speeding up of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual evolution takes place. As the first symptoms of an awakened Kundalini, some people experience violent shaking of different parts of the body. Aspirants also feel pleasure of a spiritual kind and the brain becomes hot and heavy as if under intoxication.

From the root center at the base of the spine to the crown center on top of the head, there are seven centers of energy called Chakras, through which the Kundalini passes. With the passage of Kundalini through the centers of energy, the transformation and transcendence of personality in the individual takes place. The seventh Chakra lies at the top of the head. It is the seat of cosmic awareness and is the terminal point of the Kundalini’s journey. The arrival of Kundalini at the seventh Chakra, the Crown Chakra, is the beginning of cosmic consciousness or self-realization.

There are several methods of achieving this goal –awakening the Kundalini so that it may achieve this higher level of awareness.
Chanting of mantras continuously or endless repetition of sacred passages, serves to tire the mind from thinking about many things and wandering aimlessly, and thereby brings about the desired concentration, a form of self hypnosis which activates the Kundalini.

Meditation arouses Kundalini. When we sit still, our automatic bodily functions find a minimal rhythm, and our mind is energized more fully to dwell on positive thoughts which in turn generate additional energies. Loving thoughts balance and harmonize body-mind, allowing Kundalini to flow from the unseen source.

There is the process of spiritualizing a person with the charge of psychic force. This transmission of power tends to raise the Kundalini in the disciple in the course of time which leads to self realization.

Ritual dance, drumming and many other sacred endeavors can also awaken the Kundalini, but perhaps the most renowned approach to this mystical happening involves Tantra, a discipline integrating yoga, meditation and recognition of the sex drive. In the metaphysical union, sublimation of sex is the factor producing enlightenment and illumination. Through controlled breathing and other disciplines, sexual energy is neither dissipated nor released. Rather, it is converted into pure life force, the Kundalini.

Though Kundalini awakening is perhaps the greatest prize on the spiritual quest, the awakening and its attendant process of renewal is not without peril. The process of transformation can be marked by both emotional and mental states of ecstasy as well as periods of decline and distress. Kundalini awakening can create experiences that mimic psychiatric and somatic disorders. Nothing remains untouched by Kundalini. If you have experienced Kundalini awakening or you’re seeking it, be prepared for a cosmic makeover. The Kundalini’s gifts are incomparable. After receiving them, no one is ever the same.
