History of 

 Chakras 

Chakras are spinning wheels or vortexes in your ethereal body. They are represented by different lotus flowers with various petals and colors. The wheels represent the eternal cycle of time called 'Kalachakra', representing celestial order and balance.  

  

Hindu belief date back thousands of years and are based on the Vedas and Upanishads these are wisdom teachings that were passed down from teacher to disciple. Chakras are mentioned as psychic centers of consciousness in the Yoga Upanishads, 600 B.C.E. and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 200 BCE. This is where todays classic Yoga tradition originated.  

  

Tantra plays a vital role in the raising of your Kundalini energy. Sexuality is viewed as sacred in the Hindu belief system. As your body is the Sacred Temple for the Divine consciousness that lies within.  

  

Tantra means 'loom' which symbolizes weaving yourself into wholeness. Through Tantra you will be weaving together the duality of spirit/matter, mind/body, masculine/feminine, heaven/earth. 

  

When you awaken this energy inside of you and become one with all that is not only do you bring your body and mind back into balance but also your spirit or soul. Walking the path, you will grow in ways you have never imagined and begin to light your way to Ascension.  

  

Many cultures have philosophies based on various levels of ascension we must go through. Jewish Mysticism or Kabballah is one of them much as you go through the different levels of your Chakra System each relates directly to the Tree of Life, or the Sephira. A mystical path of Ascension where your goal is to transmute your baser self into gold and become Christ like. 

  

The number 7 is used in many different forms and cycles of life and nature. The rainbow has 7 colors, music in the Western major scale has 7 notes. Even life cycles are in ratios of 7. 

 

In Ayurvedic Medicine Chakras are part of our energetic anatomy. In yogic philosophy there are seven chakras that go up the spine from the base to the top of the head. The Chakra is a concentration of energy, a focus of an area.

Each Chakra has correspondences to sound, elements, and emotions. You will learn all the correspondences as we go deeper into each Chakra. Currently, it is important for you to understand the basics.

Vital Life Force

The creator emanates out into the universe in various forms of energy reflecting love and light on all the logos. These forces manifest first as electricity, then the serpent fire, then vitality and finally as life force.

 

Kundalini is the Serpent fire that will begin to awaken at the base of your spine. Sometimes this happens to people sporadically. That is one of the reasons I am writing these classes, so people know they are not going crazy. If you are unaware of this knowledge and the energy that lies dormant in your body, it can make you feel like you are having a psychotic break. The society we live in does not embrace the mystical and unknown like our ancient ancestors did so when the unexplainable happens we immediately think we have lost our minds.
