Sometimes when I meditate and cycle through my chakras, an interesting thing happens when I’ve engaged my Crown. It connects to the Root, completing the cycle. It’s occurred to me that this could explain why the emotion of Love is often considered pink in color, even though the Heart chakra is green.
Correlating the chakras to the Sephiroth, it also explains the concept of Malkuth and Kether as being the sort of alpha and omega, beginning and end, while both serve the function of beginning and end alike.
When this happens in meditation, I’ve occasionally felt my physical body disappear from my awareness completely. It’s like I become a sphere of spirit. That’s the closest description that I can think of at the moment.
I wonder what revelations might spring forth if one were to wrap the Tree of Life around a 3-dimensional sphere? Or the Qlippoth, for that matter.
Anyhow. I had understood that there was a syncopation, a pairing between those chakras points for a while. Recently, I discovered more…
I had noticed, some time ago, that there were additional chakras points not covered in the normal 7-chakras system. I did some research and found that, yes, others have noticed this as well. The 12-chakras system seems to be the most popular outline that attempts to describe the additional points. This makes sense to me considering the Zodiac and everything else that follows the rule of twelve.
I can’t say that I necessarily agree with the labels that have been attributed to these untraditional chakras. Some examples…
I concur that there is a chakra well below the Root, under the feet. I’ve been aware of this when grounding.
The first point up from the Crown is indeed related to the spirit essence. I think “Astral” would be the best definition for it.
The second point up from the Crown is, in my opinion, related to the “God Self”. The top image there shows it as a golden color…and I can agree on that. It explodes with golden light, in my experience.
So, the other day, I’m meditating and focused on the Manipura, the Solar Plexus. Which has always seemed more “gold” than “yellow” to me (unless I’m envisioning it as a sun). Suddenly, I realize that the Manipura is directly related to the God Self chakra. I believe the symbiosis allows us to channel the power of our highest self into our physical bodies.
Just as the Crown connects to the Root, the Sacral connects to the Astral. And the Solar Plexus to the God Self. You see what I’m getting at here? There is another layer to the chakras system; a looping circuit series that emanates from us.
Here’s an illustration I whipped up:
Note the interesting pattern that forms. This is very similar to a critical part of the design of the Universe, the double spiral that appears in all things in nature.
I plan on delving into all this a bit more and seeing what there is to see…
