One more subject needs clarification before we can begin to meditate effectively to achieve strong, tangible results: our spiritual energy centers or “chakras”.
What are the chakras?
We all have chakras, the same spiritual centers that act as focal points of power. Their purpose is to help move Divine Light in and out of all levels of our consciousness.
Some may be surprised to learn that there are many spiritual centers in our auric makeup. Our spiritual and divine anatomy as a whole is richly complex, even just starting with the aura as I detailed in this post.
When it comes to our chakras we actually have four sets of seven chakras–and those are just the ones in and around our physical body! There’s even more!
For this reason alone, you will see the chakras described differently in different places, and some sets of chakras are given more emphasis in some teachings and cultures than in others.
In light of the fact that we have more than a single set of seven chakras, most teachings available today are touching on only a small part of the whole.
Generally, you’ll find a lot of good and true information out there…but it is all kind of piecemeal. You sort of have to read between the lines, and still, it can be difficult to pull together a complete picture.
Yes, some chakras look like flower-like flat discs, for example. But others are simply like spheres of light.
Sizes do vary, sometimes significantly.
While there are some colors that are common to some chakras as normally described, some can vary a little, or have one color in their nucleus, being a different color outside the nucleus. Many can radiate different colors at different times, depending on what we are thinking, saying, doing and feeling.
As we mentioned, they are focal points of power responsible for distributing Divine Light throughout all aspects of your consciousness. If the light touches into the chakras first before it goes anywhere else, then you want your chakras to be strong, stable, clear, unblocked and rotating clockwise (if they are meant to rotate).
God, the Holy Ones, and the Divine Light can achieve a lot through us, but we are only as good as the instruments we give them to work with. So we want those spiritual centers to be as strong and stable as possible because we are directly responsible for the state they are in.
As you work with Divine Light consciously in meditation, you will simultaneously strengthen your chakras. The stronger they are, the more light you can receive and channel into your aura, body, life activities, and your mind.
For the Higher Self Meditation technique, we will be working with on this site, which is from the Kingdom of Light mystical tradition (and which I will detail how-to in future posts, along with a few guided meditation videos) we will work with only four key spiritual centers within the physical body.
These are the “master set” of chakras in a sense because these are the ones the Divine Light usually enters into first before any others.
These centers are chiefly responsible for the distribution of the spiritual energy we receive.
For certain situations, you will want to work with some other centers or with other parts of your astral and spiritual makeup.
Still, in my first year or so, I achieved some pretty wonderful results just working with these four centers and nothing else. I know you will, too.
When the mystical clairvoyant affectionately known as the “Mozart of Metaphysics” published her book on spiritual healing that so clearly laid out the details of the many layers of the aura and their corresponding chakras, it was considered a breakthrough work. Some big names in energy healing and metaphysics wrote to thank her for making sense of it all.
There is still nothing like it on the market. If you would like to read up on this topic for yourself, I highly recommend The Healing Power of Your Aura by Barbara Y Martin.
I must say that while this book is the most complete and clearly written work on the subject, there are still more spiritual centers that Barbara simply cannot write about in books meant for the general public. At least, not at this time.
But some of you reading this may be ready for that knowledge now.
That is why I encourage you to consider signing up for classes taught by Barbara at the Spiritual Arts Institute if you are feeling a strong call to the metaphysical spiritual path.
As a student of eight years now myself, all I can say is that joining the classes has been one of the best and most impactful decisions of my life. I wouldn’t trade what I have learned and achieved through these classes for anything.
