Chakra Colors – Heart Spiral Meditation

Many teachers begin their basic Chakra meditation classes starting with the root Chakra and working upwards to the seventh.  While there is necessarily nothing wrong with this, for many people their inner voices whisper to them that “you’re supposed to start with the heart… this is the first Chakra… central to all other Chakras”!  

In this article you will learn about Chakra colors and just one of many meditation techniques rated Adept; since the source of this information is well versed with out of body experiences and astral travel, ending up with his own meditation technique “the heart-spiral”, which seems to harmonize well and pretty much everyone else that was told/taught this technique reported excellent feedback.

The reason many focus on the 7 glands/Chakra system is because these are the main vortex/energy points where the soul interfaces with the biological spacesuit via the gland system which produces hormones (harmony).  Nevertheless, some believe from experience that there are actually 24 prime Chakras.  12 are in this physical manifestation and 12 are in the non-physical.

We pulse in and out of this existence of focus at approx 24 times per second but are only conscious of the time we are in the physical (possibly why video movie frame rates were based on a minimum of 24 Hz i.e. frames per second).  From 12 of these prime Chakras, 7 are mirrored and aligned with the body glands.  These are the ones used for the heart-spiral.

The other 5 Chakras are over-laid as follows: one above your head, at approx. 60 centimeters above the crown and two hovering in and above your wrists approximately 15 cm, and two in the souls/soles of your feet (i.e. one in each foot).

Another issue of contention and confusion is which gland is regarded in the position of the 7th crown Chakra.  Is it the Pineal or the Pituitary?  Reports from astral travels reveal that the Pineal is the crown, the communication device between the all-that-is, receiving and transmitting all frequencies.  The Pituitary is the surveyor and the two work closely together setting up a resonance chamber in the brain between the two.

Everything Begins With the Heart…

The soul’s primary node is this area approx. 2 inches left of the “liver” up underneath the rib-cage virtually to the bottom right of the heart.  Some know this also as the “assemblage” point and there are some that actually claim to move the assemblage point from below the liver into the above area for re-aligning purposes.

All energy coming into and out of the body is through the heart Chakra which then loops around in a spiral fashion feeding into and out of the other Chakras.

The sequence is as follows…

from 1 to 7 and the correlating Chakra Colors:

 

4th Chakra – Heart (green) enters here first then

3rd Chakra – Solar Plexus (yellow) then

5th Chakra – Throat (blue) then

2nd Chakra – Sacral (orange) then

6th Chakra – Brow/3rd Eye (indigo) then

1st Chakra – Base/Root (red) then

7th Chakra – Crown (violet)

… then cycles thru again to the heart Chakra.

 

The above is a simple sequence form 1 to 7 of the Chakras opening up.

If you draw the flow of it, it is like a spiral.

 

1. Heart

Thymus Gland – Green

First for unconditional love, allowance, and transformation.

Transmutation of ALL energy.

Receiving and Giving

chakra colors

2. Solar Plexus

Spleen / Pancreas – Yellow

Where the energy and frequencies coming in from the heart are experienced as emotions and feelings.

Where integrity and power of SELF are based.

hs2

3. Throat

Thyroid Gland – Blue

Where you voice/verbalize what you feel.

Where your feelings and emotions are expressed.

hs3

4. Sacral

Gonad – Orange

Where the creativity occurs for the expressions that you feel.

Giving and Receiving (give/take)

hs4

5. Eye / Brow / Ear / Nose

Pituitary Gland – Indigo

Where you perceive and reflect.

Become aware of…” real eyes” your creations.

Your ears and nose are also connected to this Chakra.

Sight – Sound – Smell

hs5

6. Base / Root

Adrenal Gland – Red

Which grounds you to this physical/matter reality.

hs6

7. Crown

Pineal Gland – Violet

Connects you to the Universe/complete-SELF.

Whole Being/Spirit and then loops/spirals back into the heart Chakra.

Spiraling around again.  Creating a spiraling torsion field.

hs7

Also as an alternative, you can start with the heart and then focus on pairs (one above and one below).

1. Heart

2. Solar + Throat

3. Sacral+ Brow

4. Base + Crown

Instead of seven steps, you do it in 4-steps.

Consider the 4-chambers of the heart, 4-aorta’s and the heart is 4th Chakra.

Then the heart also has 7- muscles, which spin/tilt the blood like a spiraling vortex.

 

Interestingly doing some numbers on the Chakra sequence you find:

4 + 3 = 7
then 5 + 2 = 7
then 6 + 1 = 7
then 7

or with the 4th as the center

then 5 + 3 = 8
then 2 + 6 = 8
then 1 + 7 = 8

Octave of 4= 8 = Infinite Spiral Loop!

Consider heart disease is one of the number one killers.  WHY?  It is not just food/diet, it is the energy dynamics of the heart.  If the heart is not open and tuned/flowing and allowing the energy to spiral through correctly it can cause imbalances in the rest of the body and affect other things.

Some examples of blocked chakras symptoms are if the heart is blocked and you are trying to open and/or close Chakras/Seals that are closed below the heart then “dis-ease” can manifest problems in that region in the body. 

The same goes if above the heart, energy may be trying to flow/spiral/cycle thru and it can’t because the heart is closed/blocked, pressure then builds up and bang!

Also if the energy is not released from the top half or the bottom half, due to the heart seal closed or blocked (not fully open), then those Seals/Chakra’s can burn out or over stress/overwork and start causing physical ailments in those areas as well as pressure on the heart-Chakra and the heart itself.

Simply having an unbalanced or closed heart will cause other Chakras and their respective glands to either overwork/stress and burn out.  This is reflected and can be seen where some overuse/draining of certain areas.

Extreme examples are addictions such as sex or drugs, or you may notice some people talk too much; some people are over emotional; some people have severe eye/sight problems or hearing etc.

Also if you feel inclined you can sit cross-legged and also clasp and hold your hands out in front of your heart area.  Imagine your hands like a flame or ready to catch a ball and remember to breathe in/out like woosh-shhh sound… (note: the lungs are situated in the area of the heart Chakra).

Adding to this information you can focus on the Chakras while meditating with several tools, from crystals that assist each Chakra in particular, to sound frequencies, aromatherapy, intention, etc.

Definitely an interesting method to practice with.  Leave your comments below about your own experiences!

7 Important Differences Between Religion & Spirituality

“It is not that the Way broadens humans; it is that humans broaden the Way.” ~ Confucius

There are roughly 4,200 religions in the world today.  Most people believe in only one of them and renounce the other 4,199, while a small minority renounces all of them. 

There are roughly 7.3 billion people on the planet today, and every single one of us has a different psycho-physiological interpretation and perception of what spirituality and religion mean.  But, and here’s the rub, spirituality is inherent within the human condition and is as unique as our own fingerprint. 

Religion, not so much.  Religion is dictated, while spirituality is intuited.  Religion preaches while spirituality inspires.  Religion pretends to be “the Way” that broadens humanity.  Spirituality frees humanity to broaden “the Way.”

Religion is the parochial dead-end path of our ignorant forefathers, whereas spirituality up-ends that dead-end path and allows for a personal journey with the numinous.  Indeed, as Hingori said, “Spirituality begins where religion ends.”

Here are seven differences between religion and spirituality:

1) Spirituality is flexible; religion is dogmatic: “Mystery is a place where religion and science meet.  Dogma is a place where they part.  Awe-based psychology is a place where they can evolve and reunite.” ~ Kirk Schneider, PhD

Dogma has been a serious psychological hang-up for our species for thousands of years.  Our tendency to become rigid and inflexible in our thinking is an all-too-common problem.  We are a young species, after all.  There is still so much for us to figure out, and it can be daunting as hell (pun intended).

The problem is we tend to avoid an intimidating cosmos by closing ourselves off into the overly comfortable and placating nutshells of religion.  We shut down the sacred quest.  We close off the search.  We place all our eggs into a particular “basket,” swearing off all baskets, even at the risk of forsaking the baskets that have the potential to help us flourish.  In short: we become dogmatic and closed-off from the numinous.

But there is newfound hope when we are able to transform dogmatic religiosity into flexible spirituality.  True spirituality up-ends the baskets that we cling to.  It shatters the all-too-precious eggs on the tough-love concrete of an interconnected reality, revealing that flexibility and the ability to adapt and overcome are the way to move forward when facing a vastly unknown and astonishingly mysterious universe.

2) Spirituality is liberating (courage-based); religion is authoritative (fear-based): “That which can be destroyed by the truth should be.” ~ P.C. Hodgell

It’s so easy for the majority of us to allow an authority to do our thinking for us.  Most of us were raised in authoritative cultures and conditioned by biased indoctrination, after all.  Unless at some point we are taught to question things, it’s all too easy to get caught up in authoritative jargon.

No matter how outdated or nonsensical that jargon is, if we don’t learn a courage-based disposition we’ll always be caught in the fear-based indoctrination of authority, mostly due to the power of cognitive dissonance.  Spirituality is the courage-based liberation of the soul from the fear-based prison of church and state.  It frees compassion, empathy, and morality from the fallible stranglehold of human-made laws.

a-spirit3

If, as H. L. Mencken surmised, “[m]orality is doing right, no matter what you are told.  Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right,” then spirituality is tapping into the forces behind what makes things “right” or “wrong” (a universal healthy/unhealthy dynamic) and acting on those forces in a moral way, despite the declarations of church and state.

Spirituality courageously questions power; religion cowardly kowtows to it.  Jesus and Buddha were spiritual rebels who challenged dogmatic orthodoxy, not religious zealots obsequious to it.  Where religion is taking a leap of faith because of fear, spirituality is taking a leap of courage despite fear.

3) Spirituality is a painful growth; religion is comfortable stagnation: “The path of the spiritual warrior is not soft and sweet.  It is not artificially blissful and pretends forgiving.  It is not fearful of divisiveness.  It is not afraid of its own shadow.  It is not afraid of losing popularity when it speaks its truth.  It will not beat around the bush where directness is essential.  It has no regard for vested interests that cause suffering.  It is benevolent and it is fiery and it is cuttingly honest in its efforts to liberate itself and humanity from the egoic ties that bind.” ~ Jeff Brown.

Religion keeps us pampered and contented.  We feel nice and cozy in the teachings passed down by the authority of our forefathers.  And why not?  It’s so much easier to just lean on the laws created by other men.

No matter how outdated or ridiculous those laws are, and no matter how fallible and imperfect those men were.  There’s no thinking involved.  All we have to do is obey and not question any of it lest we appear blasphemous in the eyes of our peers.  Easy!

True spirituality flips the tables on blind obedience.  No fear, only fearlessness.  It questions outdated laws.  It upsets all dogmatic apple carts.  But it is not without pain.  It is not without existential angst.  As Eckhart Tolle says, “the fire of suffering becomes the light of consciousness.”

A spiritual person is a beacon fully lit, brightening an uncertain shoreline where waves of doubt crush the beaches of certainty.  Those who are spiritual dip in and out of all religions, ideologies, mythologies, and philosophies, taking the healthy with them and leaving the unhealthy behind.  They are existential alchemists, transforming religious lead into spiritual gold.  And such gold shines all the brighter in dark times.

a-spirit2

4) Spirituality is open-minded; religion is close-minded: “To conceive of ourselves as fragmentary matter cohering for a millisecond between two eternities of darkness is very difficult.” ~ Sebastian Faulks

A religious person stubbornly believes; a spiritual person takes things into consideration and lets things go.  If “belief is a wound that knowledge heals,” as Ursula K. Le Guin states, then open-mindedness is the scar left behind: flexible and robust from the harsh lessons of vicissitude.  In spiritual circles, curiosity is allowed to be foremost; in religious circles, curiosity is atrophied by the reliance on outdated “answers”.

Where religion blindly clings to what it believes is right, spirituality openly surrenders to what could be healthy.  Those who are spiritual tend to be more open-minded precisely because they are free to question everything, to practice probability, to embrace being wrong, and to remain curious and skeptical in the face of parochial authorities grown uncouth through the passage of time.

5) Spirituality is interdependent; religion is codependent: “Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.” ~ Rumi

Religion is codependent upon the establishment of church and state.  Spirituality is interdependent despite establishments.  Where the religious person submits to the authority of religion and politics, the spiritual person subsumes all religious and political strongholds through flexible inter-connectedness, thus transcending entrenched power constructs.

Spirituality is a force of nature, and the spiritual person becomes a fountainhead for an ecstatic universe, a mighty conduit, an existential pivot where the cosmic dance between an independent observer and observed interdependence is free to take place.  There is a music in this sacred space that doesn’t use words, and the spiritual person has the ears with which to listen.

a-spirit4

6) Spirituality speaks a language older than words; religion speaks a language limited by words: “The poet and the musician together speak a natural and universal language… The original language that all creators spoke before the fall of man. This language is, of course, the language of the birds.  And, what does it mean?  What does the shape of a tree mean?  What do clouds mean?  What is the meaning of the way the stars are scattered through the sky?  Both poetry and music lead us to the understanding of what this world is all about. Which is: It’s a dance.  A rhythm.” ~ Alan Watts

Within the mysterious rhythm of the cosmic orchestra playing itself out, the spiritual person dances in full glory.  While the religious person cowers in fear of God, the spiritual person pirouettes through the fear and dances with God.  For those who are spiritual have tapped into the interconnected Mecca.  They are milking the essence of all things, the language of birds and sky, fire and ice, life and death, permanence and impermanence –the voice of God and the song of Infinity.

The Truth is a gamboling gamble, and those who are truly spiritual are gamblers par excellence, knowing that the human condition is fallible and flawed, but having the ontological wherewithal to rise above it with an act of Promethean courage that topples outdated godheads.

They rise up with a full heart, with audacious love, with a throat Chakra in full flutter speaking fluently A Language Older Than Words.  But they are still not afraid to speak their experienced truth.  For as Gustave Flaubert observed, “Human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars.”

7) Spirituality allows the Great Mystery (God) to be truly infinite:  “How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, ‘This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, subtler, more elegant?’  Instead, they say, ‘No, no, no! My God is a little God, and I want him to stay that way.'” ~ Carl Sagan

Spirituality is vulnerable intimacy with the Infinite.  Religion is veiled invulnerability pretending to be intimate.  A spiritual person understands that Infinity cannot be pigeonholed into finite constructs.

God cannot be crammed into human-made models.  Through such understanding, the spiritual person transcends the finite game of religion in order to play the infinite game of spirituality.

The mirror through which we reflect the Great Mystery is the same mirror through which the Great Mystery reflects us.  The spiritual person has intuited this, shed the middleman, and become the mirror.

Where the religious person is desperately looking for his/her own reflection, the spiritual person has become Reflection itself, understanding that there is no duality, only the illusion of duality.

There is no finitude, only the illusion of finitude.  They are walking, talking, meditating Mirrors dancing as Reflection between micro and macro, flesh and spirit, man and God, order and chaos, entropy and life.  They have risen above the empty placation’s and petty platitudes of religion and have embraced the open explication and flexible interpretation of the Great Mystery through spirituality.

The spiritually robust have moved on from the shackles of someone else’s experience in order to feel their own experience, understanding, as Angeles Arrien did that “we are all unique medicine“.

How Do Crystals Work?

Crystals form over many years, deep within the earth within the forces of solid matter.  They form in places that are rich in minerals, usually molten rock.  The process in which they are formed usually occurs when hot gases encounter cool surroundings and in turn deposit crystals.  The perfect formation of crystals occurs when the temperature and concentration of the solution they are forming from are in harmony.  It seems it is a type of alchemy that takes place in their formation, as is the same with anything that comes from nature, but the specific formation of crystals is what attracts people to them the most.

There are huge arrays of different types of crystals in all different shapes, sizes, and colors.  Throughout history and continuing into the present day, some people believe in the energetic properties crystals have as well as their aesthetic beauty which can be utilized for color therapy.  Although crystals are not spoken about in science to have healing effects, when we listen to our spiritual guides from around the world we see that there is, in fact, a healing property within these crystals that can be utilized within our lives just by being in their presence.

This, it seems is what can be difficult to grasp for some people as they are skeptical, as we all are when something new is presented to us.  However, this is not a new concept, it only appears so in our modern day since we are so heavily bombarded by science and the outer world of tangible reality.  The healing benefits of crystals can sometimes be met with much speculation.  It is understandable that people may think crystals cannot actually do anything outside of appeal to our eyes.

We understand that plants and water carry the same energizing and healing effects only because we consume them, therefore, what about the energy of matter and how it affects our lives?  For instance, when a person is in the presence of wondrous art, a scenic view of nature, or even in the presence of a person who is negative, then why are we so affected by these things if we do not consume them?  This is because everything is made up of energy.  This energy field cannot always be seen by our eyes, rather it can be sensed or felt.  Even our entire bodily system is made purely out of energy, which science does not contradict against.

Since the healing effects of crystals cannot be so easily pinned down by science when many factors need to be taken into account, it all comes down to what we ourselves choose to believe.  This is the same for anything in life, have no doubts about it, because it is our judgments and reactions that create our world, not the other way around.

Crystals radiate pure patterns since they are sourced directly from nature.  They are mother natures production of art and a representation of how energy is harnessed correctly to create perfect harmony in the material world.

“Each stone resonates with a slightly different pattern geometrically.  These same geometric patterns reside in our systems and organs.” – Benjamin Dean

Therefore, the structural patterns that are active in say a Rose quartz (generally used in order to open the heart chakra) can balance out the same energy structure in our heart.  Nature has created this amazing world we live in, therefore, to believe that nature only creates material that is “pretty to look at” no longer makes sense since the biological codes that exist within and without of us in this world are so magnificently intricate that everything has a purpose.

It is important to first understand the healing benefits that each crystal can have for each different part of your physical, mental and spiritual energies.  Only once you have fully understood and experienced this inherent knowledge surrounding crystals can you begin to see the results.
