SPINNING WHEELS (SPHERES) OF LIGHT CODES AND PROGRAMS
Vetruvian Man with Seven Chakra Overlay
Vortices (vortexes). We each have them. There are many chakras all over our bodies; they are everywhere in and around us. They are all over the planet at sacred power points on the land. They are everywhere within and without. We are made up of moving units of Light Packets or Codes of Light.
There are far more than a mere seven chakras (READ HERE: Transcending the 7th (Chakra)); however, today we focus on the main central wheels of Light that are positioned (see above image) down the central column of our bodies. Let us first review the body's basic chakras ... Have you ever wondered about our body's chakra system (spinning vortexes or wheels of light)? Would you like to know what each chakra represents? Here is a simple diagram and list for you to follow. | WIKIPEDIA
THE CHAKRAS ARE AS FOLLOWS
- ROOT/BASE (MULADHARA) CHAKRA
The ROOT/BASE (Muladhara) chakra is located at the base of the spine and is associated with physical survival, energy distribution and practicality. Supporting power stones would be bloodstone, red jasper, and garnet.The color is red.
SACRAL (SVADISTHANA) CHAKRA
The SACRAL (Svadisthana) chakra is associated with orange, and is located in the lower abdomen, just below the navel. Its functions are creativity, feelings, sexual drive and pleasure, as well as exploration. Supporting power stones would be carnelian or orange zincite. The color is orange.
SOLAR PLEXUS (MANIPURA) CHAKRA
The SOLAR PLEXUS (Manipura) chakra is located just below the ribcage and associated with yellow. It identifies and assists in the sense of identity, self-confidence and personal power. Supporting power stones would be citrine, golden calcite, tiger's eye, yellow topaz, yellow sapphire or amber. The color is yellow.
- HEART (ANAHATA) CHAKRA
The HEART (Anahata) chakra is located at the center of the chest and associated with green. It deals with relationships, personal development, direction and sharing. Supporting power stones would be rose quartz, aventurine or green tourmaline. The color is green.

CROWN (SAHASRARA, KETHER) CHAKRA
The CROWN (Sahasrara; Kether) chakra is located just above the top of the head and is associated with violet. It maintains overall balance of the chakra system, stimulating fine levels of perception, intuition and inspiration. Supporting power stones would be amethyst or clear quartz. The color is violet.
Harmony and stability can also come from re-structuring and re-organizing our chakras. By doing this we walk on the earth with a renewed sense of order and inner/outer structure when we 'lock in' to the Divine Structure and Flow of the Universal axiotonal grid lines surrounding the planet and traveling through us.
Blockages or vulnerabilities in our chakras will show up as blocks in our daily lives so it pays to pay attention to them, and clear them often.
Now with a greater understanding of the basic seven chakras you can understand their importance and value. There are may ways to rebalance ourselves: yoga asanas, breath working exercises, aromatherapy essential oils, chanting Sacred Names of God, visualization, eating a more balanced / living diet, walks out in nature, ecstatic dancing or whirling as the Sufi masters, and so on.
Today I invite you to discover another method of rebalancing and clearing the chakras utilizing breath, color and focus with the following meditation exercises:
ADVANCED BREATHING EXERCISE #1 - COLORFUL CLOUD CHAKRA MEDITATION
TO CLEAR AND REBALANCE
With eyes closed ... Imagine a small red cloud coming before your inner vision. See it floating before you.
TIP: If you have difficulty 'seeing' a little red cloud before your inner vision, there are ways around this; you can pretend or imagine a red cloud floating before you, or perhaps you can pretend to see at least the color of red and then it will evolve later on into a little red cloud formation.Inhale the little red cloud through your nose, slowly and gently, inhaling deeply, filling your lungs and belly with this little red cloud.
Now through your mouth, slowly exhale the little red cloud from your belly and lungs.
- The red cloud represents your root chakra or 1st chakra
The next cloud you see is a small orange cloud. Do the same inhale/exhale exercise for this colored cloud. Inhale the orange cloud through your nose slowly and completely, and exhale the orange cloud through your mouth.
The orange cloud represents your sacral chakra or 2nd chakra
Do this exact same inhale/exhale technique for the remaining clouds.
Yellow cloud, solar plexus or 3rd chakra
Green cloud, heart chakra or 4th chakra
Pink cloud, this is for your high heart chakra, or known as the high heart area
Blue cloud, for your throat chakra area, your throat center, 5th chakra
Purple cloud, for your third of ivy, or your Third Eye chakra, 6th chakra
Silver cloud, your crown chakra, 7th chakra
Seafoam green cloud, your 8th chakra
Pink/orange or salmon cloud, your 9th chakra
Blue green cloud, your 10th chakra
Pearlescent white cloud, you're 11th chakra
And last but not least, a beautiful golden cloud, halo, 12th chakra
ASCENSION NOTE: Six (Entropy) is a Subset of Nine (Syntropy)
This is good news in that there is always, always, always order and structure even amid the darkest chaos. As Christ mentions, "not one sheep will be lost". Eventually, we access the triple power (trikaya) of the divine trinity "3" code in order to increase to the 9 level, travel through this lower dimensional frequency and ascend into the higher realms of Light. Do not limit yourself to clearing and working with seven chakras only, break through the Crown (Kether) into a higher light frequency. (more on this topic to come)
You should now be in a gentle, relaxed state of being. This exercise will balance, calm and clear your chakras, giving them the right amount of balanced energy. Pay close attention to any variances or nuances the clouds and chakras may exhibit in subsequent meditations. These changes may mark or indicate shifts of consciousness. You may feel free to get up and move about as you wish, take a sip of water, and so forth, and yet are capable of returning to this state of relaxation.
When you feel you have mastered this exercise begin to pay attention to any feelings you may experience. As you inhale begin to expand that time from four seconds to eight, then to 16 seconds. After a while you can hold that time between each inhale/exhale the same length.
ADVANCED BREATHING EXERCISE #2 INHALE-EXHALE
On the Inhale: Add an attribute feeling (i.e., love, kindness, peacefulness, etc.)
On the Exhale: Add an emotion for release (i.e., anger, hatred, fear, guilt, shame, etc.)
This way you are taking in the positive and releasing the negative at each chakra level. Very powerful!
