Putting a New Spin on the Chakras

The chakras aren’t really pretty, swirling, vortexes of light, that somehow get messed up and you can fix them by wearing red colored glasses or green pants.

Oh, if it were only that easy.

Understanding the chakras as a model of consciousness which, like pure white light before it passes through the prism, is completely invisible.

More from our Master Spiritual Teacher himself, GP Walsh…

The Chakras Get an Upgrade

There aren’t many of the esoteric philosophies and new age adaptations that I teach or am even interested in.

But one did catch my attention and, after a bit of examination I discovered it had enormous teaching potential. That one what the Chakras.

Now, most people regard them as pretty, swirling, vortexes of light, hanging out in various places in the body. Like the image at the top of this email… pretty girl, pretty lights and Sanskrit words.

You know, the word chakra in Sanskrit simply means wheel. And, of course, the whole point of a wheel is to roll, or spin if you prefer.

But the chakras aren’t literal, they are metaphorical. They represent the flow of life, which is in constant motion.

The chakra are not literal wheels, they are ARCHETYPES.

Now I know that flies in the face of what we in the west have come to believe they are, but indulge me for a minute.

The western mind sees everything literally, physically and objectively. It has a hard time grasping things symbolically. In fact, the west believes that if it isn’t physical and objective, it isn’t real. Our definition of reality is that you can see it, hear it, touch it, smell it or taste… or all the above.

So it should come as no surprise, that we would try to turn a metaphor in to a literal fact. Like the statue of liberty is not liberty but only a symbolic representation of it, even so the chakras are represent something extremely important. What is this extremely important thing the symbolize?

The chakras are archetypes that represent you!

They are aspects of your consciousness. They are aspects of your being. Like light shining through a prism reveals its manifest nature, so the light of consciousness, shining through the prism of the mind, reveals all of the aspects of human existence.

I am going to be talking more about this on this week’s radio show. I hope you will join me.
