You are energetically designed to have a life of magnificence. Within you is a powerful, in-built chakra system, which creates for you a beautiful life, filled with all the things you cherish and adore, says modern mystic Belinda Davidson. Here she shares her beginners’ guide to the chakras…
Going within and changing your energy, is the only sure-fire way to make lasting personal changes because the state of your energy field determines the state of your life.
Your Energetic Brilliance
Your aura is a magnificent field of pure energy that exists all around you. It not only surrounds your entire body but it also radiates out from beneath your feet, either side of your body and above your head.
Your energy field consists of 12 different levels of vibration. These levels of vibration are called ‘chakras’, and these chakras are found at specific places within your physical body or energy field; six of the 12 chakras are found in the body, and the other six are located above the head.
Each one of your chakras energetically fuels and sustains aspects of your life and your body. They do this by receiving energy from the Universe and then transporting this energy into a certain area of your life and body. Think of the chakras as happy, eager, diligent workers, who spend all day looking after, managing and organising every aspect of your life.
There is a chakra, whose job it is to look after your career, a chakra that looks after your abundance, one who makes sure you rest and enjoy yourself, and one that supports you in discovering and living out your creativity. It’s that amazing! Within you is a marvellous inbuilt system, that creates for you a joyful, creative, abundant, fulfilling and beautiful life. Aren’t we generously crafted and designed?
What you need to understand about yourself is this: Every aspect of your life works if the chakras are doing their job properly.
This understanding is the key to a magical life. If your chakras are all working properly, your life is magical, beautiful and exciting, full of everything you could ever dream of and desire.
If most of your chakras are working, your life is wonderful with a few hiccups here and there.
If some of your chakras aren’t doing their job properly, some areas of your life work and others don’t, and if most of your chakras are struggling, your life will now low as it should. You won’t be fulfilled and will land yourself in the struggle cycle. In this piece you will learn how to get your chakras working properly, so that your life blossoms.
Let’s take a look at the different levels of your energy anatomy. It may help you to see these twelve levels of vibration like a 12 story house. Chakra 1 would be the ground floor, and Chakra 12 the penthouse.
Level 1 – Your Base Chakra
The first level of your energy anatomy is the base chakra. This chakra is located at the base of your spine and its job is to look after the spine, hips, legs, feet, as well your physical body in general.
This chakra is also responsible for finding you a community of people or tribe in which you feel safe, honoured and protected.
If you are struggling to ‘finance your existence,’ and to make ends meet, have low energy, leg, hip, feet and spinal problems, feel alone and crave to find your ‘home’ in the world, then your base chakra is not working properly.
Level 2 – Your Sacral Chakra
The second level of your energy anatomy is your sacral chakra, located just below your navel. The sacral chakra is responsible for looking after your bladder, kidneys, reproductive system and lower abdomen.
This chakra also helps you discover who you are and what you, as an individual person, desire. It not only helps you discover what brings you pleasure, it also ‘draws into your life’ the things you find pleasurable.
Do you have bladder, kidney or lower abdomen problems?
Do you know what you love and what brings you joy?
Is your life full of pleasure?
Can you ‘be in the moment’ and lose yourself in the beauty of your lover’s embrace, your child’s warm hug or the magnificent colours of a spectacular sunset?
If not, then your sacral chakra is not doing its job properly.
Level 3 – Your Solar Plexus Chakra
The third level of your energy anatomy is located in your stomach region and is called the solar plexus. This chakra looks after your stomach, liver, intestines as well as your whole digestive system. The job of your solar plexus chakra is to make sure that you conduct your life in accordance withyour beliefs.
This chakra keeps you on track with that ‘which is right for you’ even if this ‘goes against the grain’. The solar plexus chakra acts like your own personal bodyguard, defending your moral code and integrity. It does this by making sure you don’t stray from your own path and get influenced by, and tangled up in, other people’s opinions and negative beliefs.
Find out if your solar plexus chakra is working properly by asking yourself the following questions:
Do I have bad digestion, stomach, liver, gallbladder or pancreas problems?
Can I stand up for what I believe in?
Can I say ‘no’ without fearing judgement?
Can I calmly express my opinions without being defensive and angry?
Can I fearlessly forge ahead with a project or decision that I know is right for me even if my family and friends don’t approve?
Level 4 – Your Heart Chakra
The fourth level of your energy anatomy is your heart chakra. Located in the heart and chest region, this chakra’s duty is to look after your heart, lungs and circulation system. Your heart chakra also keeps your heart open and loving. It does this by acting as a type of ‘purification system’, cleansing all your chakras of any negative emotions and keeping your entire energy field positive.
It is the job of the heart chakra to keep you loving and vibrating on a positive frequency, so that all that you love will easily flow into your life.
Do you have a passionate love life, a harmonious family life and/or a nourishing and stimulating friendships?
Have you found your dream job?
Do you have hobbies that you adore?
Are you surrounded by love, support and beauty?
If you are joyous most of the time and your life is full of all the things you love, your heart chakra is working. If not, it’s likely to be unbalanced.
Level 5 – Your Throat Chakra
The fifth level of vibration is called the throat chakra. Located at the throat, its job is to not only look after your throat, thyroid, neck and jaw it also helps you find your authentic and individual voice and express it.
Have you found your own ‘voice’? If yes, can you express it?
Do you know yourself? If yes, can you express your truth honestly and authentically?
Do you have health problems in the throat region?
Your throat chakra also helps you clearly communicate that which you need, desire and believe in. Can you do this? Are you sharing with others how you feel, what you believe in and what is dear to you? If not, then your throat chakra is not doing its job.
Level 6 – Your Third Eye Chakra
Your third eye is the sixth level of vibration that you exist on. It is located on the point of your forehead, between and above your eyebrows. This chakra looks after your brain, neurological system, eyes, ears and nose.
Its job is to teach you the power of your mind and how you can, through your will power, heal yourself and change your life. This chakra also opens you up to becoming more psychic and intuitive.
This chakra is also responsible for helping you become more receptive to ‘other realities’ and the infinity of possibilities in the Universe that exist for you. When you begin to dream big and awaken to your life’s aspirations, you literally start to create your dream life through your will power.
Most people have not yet begun to harness the power of their minds to change their reality.
Most people have also not yet begun to ‘see’ the infinity of possibilities that exist and to use this insight to create their dream worlds. Have you?
Level 7 – Your Crown Chakra
The seventh level of vibration of your energy anatomy is the crown chakra. This chakra is located above the head and it looks after your upper brain and nervous system. Its job is to awaken you to the truth of who you really are: a magnificent infinite soul and being of light, temporarily housed in a body experiencing life on Earth.
When one awakens to this truth, one experiences a peace so deep, a joy so blissful that everything else ever experienced pales in comparison. This experience is what people call ‘enlightenment.’
Have you had this experience? Is your life imbued with peace and joy because you know that you are one with everything there is, eternally connected to and loved by the universe?
If not, then your crown chakra is unbalanced.
Level 8 – 12 – Your Soul’s Purpose
The crown chakra also acts as the gateway, a portal, to the five higher levels of your energy anatomy (Chakra 8 – 12). These chakras reveal to you your higher purpose and show you how to live it.
Getting the chakras fit so that we can discover our life’s purpose.
Within your chakra 8 lies the blueprint of your greatest potential. I call this the ‘Soul Blueprint’.
When you are energetically fit enough to do so, you can journey into your chakra 8 and discover what you are here to do in the world!
Once you have ‘downloaded’ your Soul Blueprint in chakra 8, your energy moves higher, up into chakra 9, and then you’re able to access learn how to express your unique talents and abilities in the world.
Not only that, working with chakra 9 opens up your ‘miracle-ness’, and you are then able to materialise, teleport, become telepathic, influence the elements, astral travel and the like.
In chakra 10, working your ‘miracle-ness’ muscle continues, and your masculine and feminine aspects also being to merge. You then become even more powerful in your life purpose work and ability to manifest and create. In chakra 10, you become a master manifestor.
Chakras 11 and 12 are dedicated to re-remembering and experiencing your ‘God-like’ nature.
Here you experience yourself as a blissful field of energy, interconnected with The All. You know you can experience, manifest, be and have anything because you are everything.
The spiritual masters and avatars of the world – Babaji, Yogananda, Mutter Meera, Dali Lama, Christ – exist from this high level. But this is where you are also headed. Towards your ‘God-like’ nature!
The best thing you can do for yourself, is look after your chakras. Everything works when they do.
