Thinking about chakras from a different perspective

7 chakras

Did you know that chakras affect our wellbeing on many different levels? They connect to organs in our physical body as well as to our emotional and spiritual bodies. And beyond – for we are all energetically connected via the Divine Matrix to each other to the Earth and beyond.

If chakras are out of balance, it can create dis-ease. And eventually may lead to more serious health conditions.

Carolyn Myss, in her book Anatomy of the Spirit writes extensively about this. Here’s just a snippet to give you a  bit of an idea –

The Base Chakra provides the physical body support for the base of the spine, legs, bones, feet, rectum and the immune system. It relates to family, group safety and security, being able to provide for life’s necessities. Dysfunctions can include chronic lower back pain, ciatica, varicose veins, immune related disorders.

I don’t want to dwell on the personal chakras in any detail here. There has been a lot written about the seven chakras. But did you know that as humanity, and we as individuals continue to evolve and grow, more higher level chakras are coming into being.

The other very interesting piece of work undertaken by Carolyn Myss was her comparison between different spiritual teachings across the world.

The truths contained in the scriptural teachings of the different religious traditions are meant to unite us, not separate us. Literal interpretation creates separation, whereas symbolic interpretations – seeing that all of them address the identical design of our spiritual natures – brings us together. As we shift our attention away from the external world and into the internal one, we learn symbolic sight. Within, we are all the same, and the spiritual challenges we face are mere physical props. The more we seek what is the same in all of us, the more our symbolic sight gains authority to direct us.
Merging Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Jewish spiritual traditions into one system with common sacred truths constitutes a powerful system of guidance that can enhance our minds and bodies and show us how to manage our spirits within the world.” The Anatomy of Spirit page 90-91

What she found was that the  teachings of the Kundalini System, the Christian Sacraments, the Kabbalah and the Seven Sacred Truths could be interpreted or understood as essentially the same thing just viewed from many different perspectives.

I find this particularly fascinating. It gives strength to the belief that we are All One. That ‘all roads lead to Rome’.  That although different languaging is used it all essentially describes the same thing. Which leads me to ask the question, what are we fighting about?

In the early 1980’s practitioners trained in the art of meditation were placed at various trouble spots throughout the Middle East. With clockwork-like precision, each time the practitioners began their meditation which focused on the feeling of peace, crimes against humanity dropped, emergency room visits declined and traffic accidents went down. Statistics reversed each time the meditations ended. This happened with such regularity that those conducting the experiments were able to calculate the minimum number of people meditating on peace, needed to effect a change in a community, or the world. The number is surprisingly small: the square root of 1% of any population.
With this in mind I have created the Meditation for World Peace. This guided meditation allows those who have never practiced meditation, and those who are experts, to partake in this movement to promote world peace by embodying and simultaneously sending out the vibration of peace and love….” Therese Joseph
