The chakra system will be an ancient system, known to many cultures for thousands of years. Chakra (pronounced CHUK-ruh) means wheel or circle in sanskrit. In Tibetan Buddhism the centres are called channel wheels. Taoist yoga will be a complex discipline based on the control along with also circulation of these vital energies seen as vortexes.
Chakras are also called lotuses, which gives us some idea of the nature of the chakras. The lotus with its exquisite flowers blooming on the surface of the water, under the light of the Sun (spirit), has its roots buried inside muddy darkness of the depths (the physical). Just like the lotus blossom, the chakras can be closed, in bud, opening or blossoming, active or dormant.
The ancient western alchemical tradition used the chakra system, with metals along with also planets being assigned to the chakras in an elaborate system of correspondences, which formed the basis of the alchemists’ quest for spiritual transformation. With the decline of alchemical arts, knowledge of the chakras faded also. Interest inside chakras re-emerged inside west with the appearance of the Theosophy movement inside late nineteenth along with also early twentieth centuries.
The chakra system will be an energetic data storage system, very much like a computer, which many healers feel or see. the idea will be the spiritual interface between the physical body, through the nervous system, our spirit body & the holographic web. The nervous system will be our physical interface, communicating with all aspects of the physical, giving information to & receiving coming from the chakras. The chakras function as transmitters of energy coming from one level to another, distributing qi or prana to the physical body.
While there are many minor chakras inside body & at our joints, the idea will be recognized of which there are 7 major chakras between the groin along with also top of the head, with 2 others of which are of major importance located approximately 18 inches above the top of the head, known as the Soul Star, the Earth Star, located approximately 18 inches below the feet. There are differences of opinion as to where some of the minor chakras are. I work with & balance 16 major chakras, coming from the Earth Star all the way to the Monad:Divine connection, some of which are not recognized by some other healers or systems, doing my healing work unique.
Personal experience will be a vital part of western acceptance for everything, our, “I’ll believe the idea when I see the idea” syndrome, & limits humanity’s multi-sensory experiences. There are many reported incidences however, where people have had physical pain, inside heart for example, with no physiological reason found, even after extensive medical testing. When these people went on to have a crystal healing & chakra balance, the healer found of which their pain to be connected to a past life injury & the pain resolved after the rebalance. Many healers believe of which physical aliments have their root in mental & emotional imbalances & in order to heal the physical body one must also address the mental & emotional bodies as well.
Each one of the commonly recognized 7 chakras corresponds to a physical system along with also its related organs along with also glands. Sound, colors along with also crystals are assigned to each chakra, though the colors along with also functions of each chakra vary somewhat according to different traditions.

Shadow aspect: the need to know why things happen as they do, which causes you to live inside past. colour: white; Note: B; Crystal: Clear Quartz, Selenite, Indicolite (Blue) Quartz.
I received the following information coming from the Divine in a healing session many years ago. As I have worked with these chakras my understanding of them has grown. People are somewhat familiar with the eighth chakra, also known as the Soul Star or Interpersonal Chakra. Less will be known about charkas nine through twelve. Information varies when the idea comes to the higher dimensions. of which will be because people are on different levels of awareness, or hold different vibrational levels. You can only see the truth based on where you are looking coming from inside moment.
The 5 Higher Chakras, 8 – 12
These all 5 higher charkas were disconnected eons ago & are right now being reconnected through our opening to Spirit. The process can be speeded up through an Ascension Initiation. The colors of the higher charkas varies coming from person to person & will be dependent on your individual purpose or function 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 known as the Transpersonal chakra, will be approximately 18 inches above the head. This particular will be the center of which holds all our contracts & agreements related to This particular lifetime, karmic connections along with also so on. A person’s Soul Star overlaps with of which of the people they’ve had long-term relationships or sexual encounters with, & they don’t completely disconnect on their own, even though the couple may part physically. the idea’s very important, therefore, to be able to clear all those old relationship contracts, in order to make way for brand new potential relationships to come to you more easily, or to clear a pathway for the relationship of your current, supporting the idea to grow more fully. The eight chakra will be also the center of detachment, staying inside present moment, unconditional trust, acceptance of intuitive guidance & the ability to discern illusion. the idea will be the center of higher intellect. the idea marks the realm where the individual soul merges with the Universal Mind. the idea also marks the point where the soul manifests into matter, into the individual energy body. Note: C;
The Ninth Chakra: Intergalactic Gateway to the Divine along with also the BluePrint due to This particular incarnation, & our Higher Emotional Center. This particular will be where we hold all the information related to who we will be & are, in This particular current incarnation – our eye colour, hair colour, some other features, personality characteristics & what we are going to be/do in This particular lifetime. This particular information becomes our DNA. We choose all This particular before we come in to This particular incarnation. In a healing, the BluePrint may appear fragmented, damaged or fractured, split, cracked, scattered or even dispersed. I worked with one woman who was extremely depressed, along with also I had a sense of which she did not want to be here. She confirmed This particular when I asked her. Her blueprint actually appeared dispersed or scattered & I believe she might have tried to leave somehow if she hadn’t had the session with me. She burst into tears when I asked of which a brand new blueprint be brought in & she felt completely different after the session. In particular she had a huge Discharge when I cleared her ninth along with also eleventh chakras. Note: D
The Tenth Chakra: Interdimensional Gateway to the Divine will be the gateway to all the some other experiences (along with also dimensions) we’ve had throughout the universe. This particular chakra will be where the soul fragments itself & scatters itself throughout the universe, requiring ‘retrieval’. Once all aspects are retrieved the person has full access to all the infinite possibilities of who they’ve been along with also are–their ‘universal archetypes’, for want of a better term. By bringing the essence of those aspects or soul fragments into one chakra the idea gives us the ability to work with all our talents along with also abilities. Most people only have access to between one along with also ten of their universal archetypes, along with also of which’s quite limiting because we actually have an infinite number. Note: E
The Eleventh chakra: Universal Gateway to the Divine will be where duality begins, so to speak. the idea will be the ‘field of overlap’ between Light & Dark will be where we have all contracts along with also agreements belonging to our soul, whereas the eighth chakra will be This particular current incarnation’s contracts along with also agreements. Clearing the eleventh chakra will be pivotal in bringing a person into balance along with also allowing them to have full access to their Divinity. I find of which blocks inside 11th chakra are most likely to interfere with our Divine connection. This particular will be where our contracts with the occult, black magic & the Abyss are held. We all have aspects of ourselves of which have experienced the shadow, because of which’s part of the Soul’s journey to explore Light along with also Dark, Order & Chaos. Part of the Divine plan for us will be to experience Duality–Light along with also Dark along with also all the rays of the rainbow in between. Sometimes I find of which This particular chakra will be very imbalanced along with also may require a substantial infusion of Love, & perhaps a ‘brand new’ chakra make by needed. When I clear with This particular chakra people often experience an instant shift, along with also they comment of which they suddenly feel different, more connected to the Divine. Note: F
The Twelfth charka: Monadic Soul Level Completing the all 5 higher charkas will be the 12th chakra or the Monad will be considered the individualized Spirit-Spark of the Divine & will be often called the I am Presence. The Monad will be often considered the Ascended Master Level of the Soul. Each Monad or Spirit-Spark creates & will be divided into 12 pairs of Souls. Each pair are knows as TwinFlames. The Monad will be often considered the Ascended Master or Spirit level of Soul. When being cleared I see the person’s TwinFlame as well as their Divine Ray – their personal flavor of the Divine, in colour frequency, which will be their ‘function’ as Spirit.
Here will be the BluePrint of the Soul, the Soul’s TwinFlame–twin-self or mirror opposite. Occasionally I see the souls of some other significant relationships here. the idea’s a connection where there will be no differentiation between the Monad along with also the Divine. Often I see of which the two BluePrints–Soul’s & This particular incarnation–reflect one another. Sometimes the same fragmentation will be going on in each one. If there will be a split inside Blueprints, This particular particularly relates to a disconnection between the male along with also female aspects of our being. Unify the male/female energy within us will be the most important step to experiencing Unity.
If there will be a split between the male/female aspects, one half of the BluePrint may be missing. So the Monad will be present nevertheless their TwinFlame will be usually missing. By bringing the BluePrint back together along with also doing the idea whole, their TwinFlame comes in along with also the client has access to working with their mirror-self. Note: F#
The following will be based on the my own numbering system to include the some other major chakras of which I work with. The numbers are not important, where the chakras are & what they ‘do’ will be:
The Thirteenth Chakra: Divine Heart Space/ Star Tetrahedron Heart Centre: will be situated half way between the Throat & Heart Chakras, over the Thymus, This particular will be the chakra of Co-Creative Divine Consciousness, the acceptance of the Divine within, Unconditional Love & compassion for self & others. When we awaken This particular centre, wellness will be potentially an integral part of our path. Life takes on meaning & fulfillment & we experience the joy of Love, which pours forth coming from This particular chakra.
When fully activated This particular centre becomes one Unified Chakra. This particular will be important because a unified chakra allows you then to align your physical, emotional, mental & spiritual bodies, & to harmonize their energy. Working with the unified chakra you unify the all 5 higher & the ten lower chakras into one to ensure of which they all function in accordance with the frequency of unconditional love-based energy flowing through This particular Divine-Heart centre.
The Thymus gland controls the immune system & our rate of ageing. the idea will be fully functional when the physical body (glands & organs) utilizes the thymus-governing imprint. The thymus naturally gets smaller as we age. By tapping the thymus daily you keep the idea activated. the idea will be said of which certain initiations also keep the thymus activated & of which you will stop ageing after the initiation. Reiki will be one such initiation, particularly after Level II.
When Divine flow will be more direct & powerful, we may move consistently through life in tune with the Intention of Spirit. Then as male (thoughts) & female (emotions) are no longer antagonistic, proper hormone balance will begin to be established. colour: depends on the soul’s purpose; Note: F#
The Fourteenth Chakra: Quantum-Holographic Gateway to the Divine will be located between the knees & will be where the Universal Holographic Web connects to the physical. The Web will be like a highway & connects us to everyone & everything inside Universe. We often have inappropriate connections to others through the Web & give our gifts & talents away to hide ourselves. Healing energy can be directed through the Web in such a way as to repair the Web & thereby heal the ‘physical’ body–which only appears solid nevertheless will be in fact energy. If the physical body will be damaged the Web will be also damaged–torn or broken. colour: Green-White Note: B
The Fifteenth Chakra: Physical Gateway to the Divine will be between the feet, at the level of the ankles, & grounds & connects spirit into the physical plane. When This particular center will be activated we feel connected to Mother Earth & feel one with her energy, & of which of all life forms–referred to by Native Americans as All My Relations. Environmental consciousness resides here & our desire to support our Earth Mother. colour: Navy Blue; Note A
The Sixteenth Chakra: Earth Star will be approximately 18 inches below our feet & when activated grounds our Spirit-Self fully into the physical into the Infinite Moment of the Present, where we are the most powerful – Spirit having a human experience. We cannot be anything some other than Spirit, although humans tend to ignore This particular Truth, & there will be nothing to look for except within the self – to remember we are a piece of the Divine. colour: Forest Green; Note A#
These 16 chakras, along with some other major & minor chakras, make up the most important interface between our spirit & physical bodies. The chakras directly interface with our nervous system, hence the importance of clearing both systems–physical & energy bodies. When we observe our patterns (attitudes, values & beliefs) we see clues as to what chakras are out of balance. There are many visualizing techniques to bring the charkras into balance & alignment & in my experience they need to be practiced every day.
Physical pain associated with chakra imbalances will be very real. Having worked with people as a shaman along with also healer for over 20 years, I have seen many instances where physical pain has been relieved or released during a healing session. I have found of which we carry our past predominately in our backs, which represents our past–literally behind us! People often experience a physical sensation related to a ‘broken’ heart. They may experience pain around their mid spinal region between the shoulder blades, along with also upon visualizing their emotional heart, ‘see’ either an image of something protecting their heart (e.g., a box or cage) or ‘see’ the idea as broken. When a person has money issues along with also feels unsupported in some area of their life, they may experience low back pain.
in the past my work has evolved into my own modality, Micro-Fusion Holographic Healing, which incorporates Shamanic healing practices as well as the many modalities I have trained in. I have found of which the body responds to This particular gentle work by releasing & opening up to the Spirit-Self in a very gentle, yet profound way.
In This particular final part of The Chakras, I wanted to address some questions & issues of which have come up frequently with clients in the past, including some of the ways I’ve found most effective to keep the chakras working in harmony.
Clients have asked me to ‘close my chakras’ at the end of their session & This particular will be a very important issue to address. As a question This particular also comes up frequently: “Should I keep my chakras open or closed?” Clients have been told by some other healers of which they need to close their chakras to be ‘protected’. along with also since my clients know I open all the charkas & bring them into alignment & then give my clients a visualization for keeping their chakras open, the idea’s natural of which This particular creates confusion.
The chakras are in essence mini computers, gathering & storing information of which then gets transferred to their interfaces, the physical & spirit bodies, through the nervous system & subtle bodies. Having your chakras closed will be like trying to operate your computer with the idea switched off. Therefore the idea’s not a protection, nevertheless rather the opposite keeping you unprotected & open to negative or unwanted energies.
When your chakras are open & operating in harmony with one another, you are communicating freely with your Spirit-Self. Most importantly when your charkas are open, your heart chakra will be open, & you are exuding Love, in & around you, & This particular will be your greatest protection.
The next question I get asked the most will be, “How do I keep my chakras open?” One thing I find will be of which when the Earth Star will be closed, or deactivated, all the some other chakras are affected. Some chakras will be partially open nevertheless moving sluggishly, some chakras will be closed. Conversely I have found of which when the Earth Star will be then opened, all chakras are affected in a positive way also.
In order to go through how to open & maintain your chakras, we first need to establish how they spin – in which direction. There are 2 main beliefs about how the chakra system spins – both are valid & work, if of which’s your belief. Typically, how you were first taught will be the one of which works for you. My Crystal Master taught me This particular way: Each chakra spins the opposite direction to the one next to the idea, creating a DNA-like spiral of which locks them together, starting with the Earth Star spinning counter clockwise. Another easy way to remember the idea will be of which all the odd numbers spin clockwise, while the even numbers spin counter clockwise.
How you check This particular will be which has a pendulum, which will be also how you clear & open the chakras. You can hold a pendulum over any chakra & ask to be shown how the idea’s spinning. If a chakra will be closed, the pendulum will do nothing. If the idea’s only partially open the pendulum will spin very slowly. When a chakra will be fully open the pendulum will spin smoothly & reasonably fast, in large circle. Once you’ve established if your Earth Star will be open or closed, & you’ve checked your solar plexus & heart chakras, you can start realigning all your chakras.
the idea’s best to be sitting in a chair due to This particular exercise, so you have easy access to all your chakras. Starting at the Earth Star, which will be approx. 18 cm below your feet point your pendulum at the chakra. Lean forward & rest you elbow on the knee. This particular will give you the right position, at the level of your ankles & forward of them. right now, make the pendulum spin counter clockwise. Do This particular for about 30 seconds, until the pendulum spins easily on its own.
Continue up to your ankle chakra–clockwise, then knees – counter clockwise, first chakra at the base of the spine- counter clockwise, & so on, holding the pendulum over the area of each chakra until you get to the crown chakra on top of your head, which spins clockwise.
I know you’re wondering at This particular point, how you’re going to clear the higher charkas. Since intention will be everything, you’re going to imagine bring each one of them down in front of you–out coming from your body at approximately the level of your heart chakra. Continuing on with the 8th chakra–counterclockwise, & so on to the 12th chakra. Make each on spin until the idea can spin naturally on its own without your assistance. Sit quietly for a few minutes at the end, with your eyes closed & notice how you feel. Notice if you feel different to how you did before you started off This particular exercise. Do you feel calmer, more at peace?
Another exercise of which you can use to open each chakra will be to visualize each one spinning in its appropriate direction & visualizing the appropriate colour for each. Another way will be to hold a double terminated clear quartz crystal or selenite wand over each chakra while you’re using your pendulum. Alternatively you can hold a Herkimer or Tibetan Diamond at the points, between your thumb & index fingers. This particular will help to clear each chakra of any unwanted energies more thoroughly. Ideally, Chakra balancing should be practiced daily.
