A different way to look at chakras
I am currently working on a series of art representing our Higher Self, chakras, and bringing awareness to the Universal aether available to us. As I have a curious mind, I researched deeper into the origins of the chakra system and discovered there is a lot more than our westernised system encompasses. Here is a link to an article I found very interesting. https://hareesh.org/blog/2016/2/5/the-real-story-on-the-chakras This article supports my understanding of chakras and is one of the reasons that colours, rather than chakras, are represented within my Archangel deck.
But, here I am creating a chakra series! Let me explain.
Colour is a direct representation of frequency, as is sound. We associate colour with many emotions: red with passion and anger, orange with bliss and overwhelm, etc. We process each frequency on an aetheric level which affects us emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Chakras, in western occultism, are well known, and I don't feel the need to explain this here. This article looks at it from a different perspective, representing our shift in consciousness to a wholistic and expansive mindset. Rather than seeing the standard chakras as the only gateway for the colour frequency, this ideal expands the concept we are multi-faceted and multi-dimensional.
C.W. Leadbeater and John Woodroffe first wrote about the chakra system in the early 1900s, and it has become a much loved and used part of our healing journey, etching itself into our group consciousness. Each art piece represents the individual chakra points as visual gateways, mirroring the existing belief of the chakra system.
Aether does not just enter us only through specific gateways. After all, we are spiritual beings, making us aether manifested into the physical. Therefore, our intent directs where we absorb the required frequency into our physical being and our light bodies, supporting the understanding of vibrational healing.
Each piece of art has the Divine Feminine Inner Guru image I created for my new deck. Even though our Higher Self is of no gender, I felt the call for some Motherly nurturing in connecting with Higher Self for this intent. Having Her placed over a coloured nebular or galaxy represents our ability to absorb the relevant frequency from the Universal aether to where ever we need it. If it is through a chakra, great. If not, then this is great too!
There is so much more to the Universe than we can imagine or even measure. Embracing aether through the frequencies of colour and sound in an expansive, unconstrained manner allows our consciousness to expand to areas we have yet to discover. Being curious and open to the power available to us may open riches and opportunities that reach beyond our dreams. Isn't this the intent of enlightenment, activation, 5D consciousness or any other term we label the process of knowing who we truly are?
