What is a CHAKRA
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, or vortex, and it refers to each of the seven energy centers of which our consciousness, our energy system, is composed~ Chakras, or energy centers, function as pumps or valves, regulating the flow of energy through our energy system~ The functioning of the chakras reflects decisions we make concerning how we choose to respond to conditions in our life~ We open and close these valves when we decide what to think, and what to feel, and through which perceptual filter we choose to experience the world around us~The chakras are not physical. They are aspects of consciousness in the same way that the auras are aspects of consciousness. The chakras are more dense than the auras, but not as dense as the physical body. They interact with the physical body through two major vehicles, the endocrine system and the nervous system. Each of the seven chakras is associated with one of the seven endocrine glands, and also with a group of nerves called a plexus.
Thus, each chakra can be associated with particular parts of the body and particular functions within the body controlled by that plexus or that endocrine gland associated with that chakra~
All of your senses, all of your perceptions, all of your possible states of awareness, everything it is possible for you to experience, can be divided into seven categories~ Each category can be associated with a particular chakra~ Thus, the chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also particular parts of your consciousness~
When you feel tension in your consciousness, you feel it in the chakra associated with that part of your consciousness experiencing the stress, and in the parts of the physical body associated with that chakra~ Where you feel the stress depends upon why you feel the stress~ The tension in the chakra is detected by the nerves of the plexus associated with that chakra, and transmitted to the parts of the body controlled by that plexus~ When the tension continues over a period of time, or to a particular level of intensity, the person creates a symptom on the physical level~The symptom speaks a language that reflects the idea that we each create our reality, and the metaphoric significance of the symptom becomes apparent when the symptom is described from that point of view~ Thus, rather than saying, "I can't see," the person would describe it as keeping themselves from seeing something.
"I can't walk," means the person has been keeping themselves from walking away from a situation in which they are unhappy~ And so on~The symptom served to communicate to the person through their body what they had been doing to themselves in their consciousness~ When the person changes something about their way of being, getting the message communicated by the symptom, the symptom has no further reason for being, and it can be released, according to whatever the person allows themselves to believe is possible~We believe everything is possible~ We believe that anything can be healed~ It's just a question of how to do it~Understanding the chakras allows you to understand the relationship between your consciousness and your body, and to thus see your body as a map of your consciousness~ It gives you a better understanding of yourself and those around you~
Crown Chakra:Also known as: Cosmic Consciousness Center, "I AM" Center, Sahasrara
Location: Top of the head Parts of the body: This Chakra is associated with the top of the head, the brain, and the entire nervous system Endocrine Gland: Pineal Gland. Sense: Sense of empathy, unity, experiencing another person's experience as if you were inside them, being them.
Consciousness: The Crown Chakra represents that part of our consciousness concerned with perceptions of unity or separation~ Just as the Root Chakra showed our connection with Mother Earth, this chakra shows our relationship with Our Father in Heaven~ It represents our connection with our biological father, which becomes the model for our relationship with authority, and ultimately, with God. It's the level of the soul~ When one experiences a sense of separation from their father, they close the crown chakra, and experience a sense of isolation and aloneness, as if they are in a shell, and having difficulty with feeling contact with those around them~ Thought processes tend to justify and maintain the sense of aloneness~ The view from this chakra includes seeing one's Self as the single consciousness creating all, and paradoxically, thus connected to all, like a dreamer dreaming a dream and realizing that all that is perceived is just an extension of their own consciousness~
Element: Inner Light, which is what one experiences when they are in the deepest part of their being, as a point of consciousness glowing with intelligence. Also called White Light. Metaphysically, this is considered the most subtle element of which the entire physical universe is created.

Consciousness: This Chakra is associated with the deep inner level of Being we call the Spirit, and with what we consider spirituality and the spiritual perspective, the point of view from that deeper part of our being that western traditions consider the subconscious or unconscious. It is the place where our true motivations are found, and is the level of consciousness that directs our actions and, in fact, our lives. It is also from this point of view that one sees events in the physical world as the manifestation of co-creation among the Beings involved in those events~

Element: Ether, as the crossover between the physical world and the world of Spirit. On the physical level, it corresponds to deep space as the most subtle physical element.

Sense: Sense of touch, in its aspect of relating to the person inside the body, and distinct from the sensation of the Orange Chakra, which is more about the sensation one feels from their own body~ Hugging, therefore, is a Heart Chakra activity~ When one hugs, one is aware of what the person inside the other body feels, and they are aware of what you feel inside your body, and there is a sense of relating to the person inside the body~ Sensitivity about being touched indicates heart chakra sensitivity~
Consciousness: Perceptions of love, relationships (relating) with people close to your heart, e g partner, siblings, parents, children~ Difficulty with breathing, or with the lungs, the organs of air, indicates tension in the Heart Chakra~ A person's relationship with air reflects their relationship with love~ AIDS is a problem with the person's perceptions of love, since it is the immune system which is affected.

FOURTH DIMENSIONAL CHAKRAS
CHAKRA~DESCRIPTION ~ COLOR
The first chakra of the fourth dimension, and is the seat of the soul. In the third dimensional chakras the earth designated number zero represents physical existence. It is solid and concrete. The seat of the soul now becomes the seat of our existence, just as the earth was the baseline for our existence in the third dimension.
The ninth chakra corresponds to the base chakra in the third-dimensional chakra grid. The ninth chakra corresponds to the body of light. It has to do with joy. When this chakra is activated the body of light is now in your cellular and sub-cellular structure
The tenth chakra is associated with the polarity chakra in the third dimension. It has to do with the integration of polarities—the proper integration of male and female within self. This chakra actually starts functioning when the male and female energies are in total balance. This is experienced as a state of effortlessness, and alignment with one's soul.
This is the chakra of the New Age energies. It corresponds with the solar plexus chakra in the third dimensional chakras, connecting the third chakra to the eleventh chakra allows us to diminish the present and past life trauma stored in the third chakra. The eleventh chakra energy feeling will be like a wave, and it will move through your body and out again without staying in the body or without attaching itself to an area of misperception.
The twelfth chakra is the Christ consciousness, which is a transformational energy that connects all energy forms. It is associated with the heart chakra in the third-dimensional chakra grid.
This Thirteenth chakra has to do with the manifesting of vibratory communication. This is the chakra that is used in materializing and dematerializing things. It is also the chakra used in teleportation. This chakra is also used for healing.
The fourteenth chakra has to do with the Divine Plan. It allows the mental mind to surrender. The fourteenth chakra is saying that you are allowing the Divine Plan to show you the way without reviewing or evaluating from your mental thought beliefs. This chakra corresponds to the third eye in the third-dimensional chakra system. It is bringing clairvoyance into the fourth dimension. It is beginning to activate your unlimitedness.
Deep Blue Violet
The fifteenth chakra has to do with your Monadic connection. It corresponds to the crown chakra in the third-dimensional chakras. The seventh chakra is your spiritual connection. With the fifteenth chakra your new spiritual connection is to the Monadic level. At the fifth initiation we become merged with the Monad. This brings us to the doorway of ascension. When this chakra is operating it is saying that the structure of your soul is stable enough to handle the energy and the scope of the information coming from the monadic level.
Light Golden White
FIFTH DIMENSIONAL CHAKRAS
The sixteenth chakra has to do with ascension. Again it is the sixteenth chakra that descends into the crown chakra at the time of ascension. This chakra is the first chakra of the fifth dimensional chakra grid system. The chakra of ascension into the Monad and I Am Presence and becoming a universal being becomes one’s new base line, just as the eighth chakra, the seat of the soul, was the base line in the fourth dimensional chakras.
Light Violet White
The seventeenth chakra has to do with universal light, which corresponds to the ninth chakra, or the body of light in the fourth-dimensional chakra grid. We are going from the third dimension, which is solid, to the fourth dimension, which is solid and light, to the fifth dimension, which is total light.
The eighteenth chakra has to do with sixth-dimensional divine intent. This chakra when activated will bring in the ability to bring in the sixth dimension of reality In looking at your charts of the chakras you will see that there is a gap between the eighteenth and nineteenth chakras that says; “No correspondence.” The reason for this is that at the fifth dimensional level there is no correspondence to the solar plexus because it has united with the heart chakra.
The nineteenth chakra has to do with universal energy. The heart energy was the focus in the third dimension. The Christ consciousness is the expanding energy in the fourth dimension. In the fifth dimension the correspondence is the universal energy. This universal energy is being felt by those that are allowing the new source energy to come through this source, through their Monadic level, through their soul level to their physical body.
The twentieth chakra has to do with Beingness. In the third dimension you needed to communicate. In the fourth dimension you were able to communicate in a more expanded way through communication by vibration through light. In the fifth dimension there is no need for an exchange, it's a being-ness where exchange is not necessary for communication
Twenty First Chakra
The twenty-first chakra has to do with divine structure. It is creating from a point of evolution, which is really from a point of resolution. As you develop your consciousness, this chakra will allow you to see the Divine Plan. You are now beyond the structure of the fifth into the learning that took place during the Divine structure.
The Twenty Second Chakra
The twenty-second chakra has to do with Source or Godhead connection. It is platinum in color.
Besides using light and color to work with and open your chakras, it is also possible to use sound. Djwhal Khul has channeled the sounds that correspond to the seven three dimensional chakras. In parenthesis in the second column of the following diagram are words that will help you to enunciate the sounds properly.
