The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
The Vishuddha Chakra or better known as the Throat Chakra is fifth of the seven primary Chakras in Hindu Tantric thought. Translated in Sanskrit as “especially pure”, meaning you and God are indivisible.
In the Anahata Chakra we recognized the God within, in the Vishuddha Chakra the God within recognizes us. The contemplation is abstract and the results are a matter of fact. A place where creativity and the self are expressed in truth. A place where our negative experiences and feelings are transformed into lessons learned and wisdom gained. A balanced Vishuddha Chakra is what one would call success in life, an inactive Chakra is what one would call failure. Guilt and Shame are the main contributors to the closing of this chakra. One must rise above the Ego’s limitations to reach the point of access to the Akashic Records. To receive the messages from the higher self one must put themselves in the position to listen. Aligning yourself with the 5th chakra is aligning you with the etheric realms. which is aligning you with the mind of God. To reach this alignment one must detach from their personal experiences. Thus far on this journey of the Chakras, you have been contemplating on the God in You, in the Vishuddha Chakra, the God in you contemplates you. Like sandpaper, the journey of the Chakras can be a little coarse at the beginning but as you ascend to the Throat Chakra the material becomes very fine. In the Vishuddha Chakra, your energy you put forth is more powerful than the energy already present in the universe. No one is against you and if there is, it is you. Translating the abstract and saying the right thing at the right time is a result of a balanced Throat Chakra. The abstract or ethereal realm is not unknown, it is simply beyond reason. When one ascends into the Vishuddha Chakra one is attuned to the higher realms of knowledge. Information goes from abstract to known in the Vishuddha Chakra. The element of the Vishuddha Chakra is Ether or the Quintessence, this controls the areas above terrestrial life, literally the air the Gods breathe. In this position, you think like a God. This energy has no particular form, so in this world, it shows up as abstract. The Vishuddha chakra is living with the knowledge of that fact. The Throat Chakra is your voice, your voice is the base of all your projections. What you say or don’t say is the difference between success and failure. A balanced Vishuddha Chakra gives us the ability to say the right thing at the right time and also how to listen attentively. Although it is located in the throat, this chakra controls one’s ability to hear. You may need to hear that crucial detail that puts you over the top if one is preoccupied with self-talk, one won’t be able to access its intuition. Intuition has a lot to do with the Vishuddha Chakra and spirituality in general, the ability to listen and hear the God within. You are always in control of your voice, meaning you are always connected to the source, the trouble is in realizing this connection. Opening and balancing the Vishuddha Chakra gives you power over your voice. In the Vishuddha Chakra, your psychic nature is evident, your reality is a mirror to your inner world. No longer can one say “He is a jerk”, one has to say “Why am I creating this jerk”, and make the necessary adjustment. Life is what you say it is. Listening to our inner voice without hesitation or distraction will lead us to our best results, this is abstract. You realize that intuition is life just as much as your habitual terrestrial nature. Our source is the inner Ethereal and auric energies. From this point we find our true purpose in life.
The Anahata Chakra or better known as the Heart Chakra is fourth of the seven primary Chakras in Hindu Tantric thought. Anahata is translated from Ancient Sanskrit to mean “unstruck” or in other words unhurt, untouched. Simply meaning pure.
How does one reach this level of purity? Most of us never reach the fourth chakra because its consciousness relies on letting go of the desires and emotions that plague the ego. Rising from the Manipura Chakra to the Anahata Chakra is seen as difficult because we have to recognize our soul. At the same time, we have to realize that our desires and emotions are not of the soul. This truth is amazingly hard to recognize and admit. Most people don’t make this leap because they would rather deal with desires and emotions. Once you reach the Anahata Chakra you are making the effort to having an impersonal experience, not concerned with involving personal feelings or influences. Since most people never reach this level it is a hard subject to talk about.
The lower three chakras consolidated comprise of your earthly existence and understanding your unconscious drives and fears. Once you reach the Heart Chakra you are no longer identifying your emotions and desires. Your earthly situation is released into the element of Air, which rules over the Heart Chakra. This is the process of becoming whole again and recognizing your soul or the Self. Nobody recognizes what the Soul is because the Soul is what you are not. It is not the Me or I, it is the source of Me, I am just an appendage of the Soul. The soul encapsulates you, it is more important than you. Down to your very last breath when the Soul leaves your body and the body decomposes. The key to unlocking your Hearth Chakra is to distance yourself from your emotions, observe them, and rise above them. During anger, one can ask himself, why am I angry? From this point-of-view, one can easily release himself from all emotions.
The Animal Symbol of the Anahata Chakra is the gazelle. Gazelle an animal of the earth but when it runs it seems to be free from gravity. A gazelle is known to be extremely fast and light on its feet. So from this perspective, we can innerstand the symbol of the gazelle as it relates to the heart chakra.
When this Chakra is balanced we are filled with unconditional love for self and others. We are filled with compassion, appreciation, and joy. When this chakra is open the Higher Self is free to emerge and resonate with higher frequencies. We fully understand the concept of Namaste, ” The God in me recognizes the God in you.” Our emotions and desires are replaced with devotion. We change from “I Need” to “I Love”
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them–yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.
The Anahata Chakra represents a state of freshness that happens when we separate from our egos and experiences and begin to look at the world differently, through the soul. We begin to expand from this pure state. It’s important to separate from your Ego when opening the heart chakra, simply because the EGO and Soul don’t mix. The Ego is not going to live forever, it has a limit, unlike the Soul which lives forever. Inside of us this war wages silently and unconsciously. One is never free until he understands the purpose of the inner world, if ones inner world is filled with desires and emotions, this world is limited. If ones inner world is of that which is unlimited, one begins to reflect those miraculous worlds. The 12 petals that surround the Anahata Chakra are symbolized as lustfulness, fraudulence, indecision, repentance, hope, anxiety, longing, impartiality, arrogance, incompetence, discrimination and defiance. These petals represent the unconscious behaviors that unknowingly block the spin of one’s heart chakra.
The color of the Anahata Chakra is green really representing unconditional love. This is the crux of the heart chakra, really identifying the love you are giving and letting go of the love you are looking for. The love you are looking for is inside of you. The color green is a reminder of that, abundance. Imagine money, the trees, or grass. Abundance and good vibrations. Focus on the color green to bring about soothing, calming, balance, love, and healing.
The element of the Anahata Chakra is Air, representing intelligence, expansion, freedom, freshness, simplicity, and calm. Air also represents the breath, which is necessary for every single one of our cells to stay alive. Breath is where all life begins and where all life ends. By controlling the breath, you control life, from this perspective you understand the power of the Anahata Chakra.
