The view of most people who think about chakras or centres is that there are seven main ones.
Was this always the case? Will it always be this way?
Chakras or centres help us interact with the energies of the world and Universe around us, and spiritual energies that come in that can continually change us. For example, the heart centre is the one the soul forms first, and it can receive and send out love, as well as receive and host some divinely inspired energies. The third eye (which is opening for everyone so we can all be clairvoyant – which is a bit of a mixed blessing as we get to see the unpleasant stuff as well as the lovely) helps us to interact with information from our universe. The base centre, which is so essential for literally rooting us into the earth, and providing the solid grounding needed for spiritual life.
Centres are important to focus on in meditation, as keeping them functioning and in a pristine state are essential to spiritual development and so how we express ourselves in life.
In people, the centres are large or small depending on how active they are, and are bright or dark depending on what the people think or get up to. People who use tinder or grindr for example, can develop quite black sexual centres which shows the energy that is building up in their sexual centre.
I should put up a meditation to check out the colour of a person’s heart centre which gives a good reflection on their character. You can then check out people you come across, and it’s educational to take a look at the people on the TV. Once I found myself in a conference of people involved in the arms trade (long story, that). There were more than a few black hearts and some bats wings which indicated dark lodge status. They were an interesting mob.
A lot of the new children coming in have very bright centres, as they land on this earth to bring about some required changes.
The number of centres we require changes as time in Creation goes on. This is due to the process that creation is going through, and because the frequency and the types of energy we need to assimilate change.
Doing the meditations presented on the blog, the gold, white and blue light ones for example, will open up your new centres. Have fun.
