The 7 Chakras and the Wheel of Life

As I continue on my own path towards spiritual enlightenment, I have been studying several different methodologies on how to heal ourselves and to move into a different level of living, one free from suffering. One of these methodologies is the chakras system. I didn’t know much about the chakras until the past year or so and there is so much to learn! A system that can explain our intrinsic nature and one that has been around for a millennium or more is definitely complex. So I don’t pretend to fully understand the chakras and all the nuances, effects, and benefits of opening and balancing each chakra. But I’m beginning to understand it.

If you’d like an overview of each chakra, you can check out my previous blogs on the root chakra, the sacral chakra, the solar plexus chakra, the heart chakra, the throat chakra, and third eye chakra, and the crown chakra.

One of the most compelling aspects of the system is how to open and/or balance each chakra, as I mentioned in each of my blogs on each of the chakras. In addition to beginning to live a life that supports opening each chakra, you can also heal yourself by using a visualization technique.  Follow these steps while sitting comfortably in a chair, with your feet on the ground.

  1. Begin to visualize white light coming in through the crown chakra from either your eighth chakra or from Source or from the Divine -whichever works for you.
  2. On your in breath, bring the white light to each chakra, starting at the crown chakra, one after the next, all the way down to your root chakra.
  3. On your out breath, you can push the white light down through the root chakra, through your legs, into the earth, releasing any blockages into the earth.
  4. Know that all your blockages are being healed or cleared out through the grounding with the earth.
  5. As necessary, do this for as many breaths as you need to feel the clearing.

As a side note: I spent several months unable to do any visualization, which concerned me [as you can imagine]. I couldn’t figure out “what was wrong with me”.  I kept meditating and working on healing myself through prayer, forgiveness and other methods. I can now visualize with the best of them! So if you’re struggling with being able to use the visualization in this post, don’t sweat it.  Try to work around it or through it but be gentle with yourself.

Now you’re clear and able to better manifest your ideas and dreams. To understand how the process of getting the spark of an idea becomes real in this world, I want to take you through how you begin manifesting through the chakras, I will take you from each chakra to the next.

Most important ideas come to you when you’re busy doing other things, a time in which the busy mind/ego is quiet and distracted, like in the shower or while driving on your commute.  This idea comes to you and it must travel between each of the chakras, which may individually decide whether or not it’s a good idea.  Remember that the chakras are each an energy source in your body and each is designed to help you with an aspect of yourself and each is equally important to daily life and your decision making process. And although I’m writing this post like your chakras are separate from you, I’m artificially slowing down an instantaneous internal process that happens often at the subconscious level, to help explain it in more detail.  Your limiting beliefs may be quashing an idea before you’re ever aware you made a decision.

You may get the spark of an idea that comes to you. You can know that this is the spark of an idea is coming from your connection to Source or the Divine because it doesn’t push and it doesn’t keep coming back again and again, insistent, from different angles. [That’s your ego and it is very, very pushy.] So this spark comes to you through the crown chakra and you get enough of the download to think that it’s the start of a very good idea. This idea then descends to the third eye chakra.

The third eye chakra helps us see the idea, to perceive it as an actual concept rather than the spark of an idea. The process of moving from the crown to the third eye chakra actually begins to bring the idea into being, by perceiving the concept in a way the mind can understand.  At this point, the third eye helps to decide if this idea is something that can be made real and that is somewhat understood. If so, it moves to the throat chakra for further evaluation. If not, the idea, like so many of our ideas, floats off as unimportant or as a funny little idea and is gone.

Once it’s passed the sixth chakra, it descends into the throat chakra. As you may know, this chakra is the place of discernment, of decision, of choice. This is where you decide if you want to continue with this idea by making it even more “real”. You may even say aloud, “I just had the best idea” and it’s something that you can begin to explain, even if only to yourself. Through your discernment, your voice, you’re beginning to bring the idea into the world, from the spark to an actual idea to one that you’re using your powers of discernment to continue make real.  Once you’ve agreed on the idea through the throat chakra, it descends into the heart chakra.

The heart chakra is the nexus point in the system, the meeting place between the top three, more spiritual chakras and the bottom three, more body oriented chakras.  This is where you decide, either consciously or subconsciously, about whether this decision is a good idea or not in terms of whether it feels good, whether or not it heals or hurts your heart.  If it feels good, like it’s the right decision for you, it now descends into the third chakra, the solar plexus chakra.

The solar plexus chakra processes the idea in terms of whether or not you both have the will to do it and whether or not it will diminish your standing in the world. Will this idea make you stronger?  Or perhaps even though it may seemingly make you look foolish to others, it is ultimately good for your sense of self?  If it’s a good decision, it continues to the sacral chakra.

The sacral chakra reviews the idea through the lens of creativity and your emotions. Do you have the creative will to bring this idea to life? Are you willing to put your creativity and your emotions behind this idea? If it isn’t vetoed by the sacral chakra, the idea then descends to on to the last chakra, the root chakra.

The root chakra processes each idea in terms of whether or not the idea will affect your basic security and your affiliations with your tribe. If you move forward with this decision, will you still be safe or not? Of course, sometimes the answer to this will be no, it’s not safer, but it’s still the “right” thing to do, when it’s time to move past the ideas that your tribe has inculcated in you.  But sometime the idea is so scary, something just too demanding and the answer, for now, has to be no.

If all of the chakra centers are “go”, then you’ve effectively taken the spark of an idea, made the concept real, decided it was a good decision that positively affected your heart, that you had the power, creativity, and security to do it.  It then gets done. The vague concept of a plot becomes a novel. The spark of a business concept becomes your new business. The new way to tackle your problem becomes your new modus operandi. Or even you realize that you need to hydrate more and you get yourself a large glass of water.

Continue to work on healing and opening each of your chakras, while also working on becoming aware of your limiting beliefs. As you begin to do so, you’ll see new ideas, bigger ideas, manifesting at a faster rate.
