CHAKRAS, AWARENESS & THE REAL HEART CENTERED SPACE
As humans, we are gifted with self awareness. We "are", and we realize that we are "being".
We notice also that there are other objects and individuals in the world that are not "us".
As we perceive all these things we make representations of them in our own awareness.
However, since we are deeply conditioned by our past, we are not neutral to any given set of experiences.
In fact, we see reality through a heavy set of 𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐬 or resonances.
These “lenses” can influence:
-𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐞𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝, 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 & 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 -𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 -𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐡𝐚𝐬 𝐨𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐢𝐭 (𝐢𝐟 𝐚𝐧𝐲) -𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐡, 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩 𝐭𝐨 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐨 𝐨𝐧...
Does this sound complicated? Keep reading, i use much simpler language below, along with 𝐏𝐑𝐀𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐂𝐀𝐋 examples:
There are many systems to categorize these "lenses", yet my favorite is the 𝐲𝐨𝐠𝐢𝐜 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐤𝐫𝐚 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦.
7 containers to classify different ways human consciousness can engage with reality.
𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐢𝐧𝐠:
𝐌𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐚 (𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐭): Basic vitality, survival (Earth alchemical element)
𝐒𝐰𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐚 (𝐬𝐞𝐱𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐧𝐬): Reproduction & basic creativity, socialization, imagination, pleasure. (Water alchemical element)
𝐌𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐚 (𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐥): Individuality, competition, conquering, discipline, honor. (Fire alchemical element)
𝐀𝐧𝐚𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐚 (𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭): Compassion, unconditional love, contentment. (Air alchemical element)
𝐕𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐮𝐝𝐝𝐡𝐚 (𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐚𝐭): Refinement, class, higher creativity & expression, genius (Aether alchemical element)
𝐀𝐣𝐧𝐚 (𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐫𝐝 𝐞𝐲𝐞): Intuition, perceiving the grand design, higher intellect (Mind alchemical element)
𝐒𝐚𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐫𝐚𝐫𝐚 (𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧): Unity, void, the end of the individual & the dream of creation (Beyond duality/categorization)
There is flexibility to these, and it doesn’t mean that one of these completely dominates your outlook, just that most humans cycle predominantly through a few of them.
It is of utmost importance to be able to identify where we are standing, because it aids you into knowing when you are out of balance, or acting out of alignment with your true self or ideals.
Additionally, If you can identify which state a person is interacting with you from, it is much easier to understand their 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐬, 𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐬.
A person in the state of 𝐌𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐚, is predominantly thinking of her own survival, how she is going to get by in this world. The shadow aspect can be related to fear, and even greed, as she strives to find safety for her own well being. There is also a strong identification with the physical body.
A person in 𝐒𝐰𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐚 is mostly interested in her own comfort and pleasure, no longer just needing to survive but looking for sensual gratification (a better lifestyle, better social status, sex etc.). On the bright side, this person can display wondrous creativity & flair. Seduction & style are also in the realms of this element. It is interesting to mention, that swadisthana can pose as any of the other chakras without actually owning its substance. A person who is constantly speaking of her big dreams and projects, but who hardly ever takes action on them, is a classical example of swadisthana impersonating manipura. (it is funny that in some cases, this person is not even aware of it)
A person in 𝐌𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐚 wants to assert her individuality, is willing to go through effort, discipline and hardship to increase her value as an individual. Wants to stand out from the crowd. All competition stems from manipura. This person can uphold noble values such as honor and loyalty. On the shadow side she can become a warlord or an individual who despises weakness and treats “lower” individuals as worthless. Laws of humans and law enforcement come from manipura.
85% of the global population lives primarily amongst these 3 states
A person in 𝐀𝐧𝐚𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐚 (the heart) sees the world with the eyes of compassion and unconditional love. This person doesn’t get triggered, does not take things personally, does not seek individual gain, but looks after the good of the collective. Has the insight to understand that offenses and acts of evil come from profound suffering.
This person does not seek the punishment of the ones who commit crimes, but their redemption ("Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.").
The rules do not count in the realms of the heart. This is the true state of love. Anything else, like infatuation with another person, is a caricature, a sterile mirage (usually coming from swadisthana consciousness, yet confused as anahata).
It is beyond the scope of this article to talk about vishuddha and above, these are the geniuses, the worldchangers, the mystics & saints of this planet (if you want me to write about these let me know in the comments 👇).
So, now you that you know that theres these “states”...
𝐂𝐚𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟?
Can you see how you have fluctuated through these states your whole life?
Perhaps you had a strong spiritual experience, or did some work with medicine plants, and your outlook on the world changed dramatically.
Can you tie it back to any of these?

Working with the chakra system can bring about 𝐌𝐀𝐒𝐒𝐈𝐕𝐄 transformation!
Now, since we have done the groundwork, i want to address one further topic:
I hear a lot of people dropping the term “𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐝” very loosely in spiritual circles nowadays.
Is it really coming from complete detachment from individual gain?
From unconditional love and compassion?
Or is it being used as a marketing tool, another big trendy word like 𝐘𝐎𝐆𝐈𝐂, 𝐓𝐀𝐍𝐓𝐑𝐈𝐂 or 𝐒𝐇𝐀𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐈𝐂, words that have been prostituted so much that they have lost almost all connection to their 𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠.
Ill make it really easy for you:
-𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠, 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 -𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐮𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐝𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧, 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 -𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐝, 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 -𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐯𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐞, 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭 -𝐢𝐟 𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐫 𝐝𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞, 𝐍𝐎𝐓 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐭
Can you tell now where each of the people in your life are coming from? What are they trying to convey or achieve with their message?
Most importantly, 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦, 𝐡𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐥𝐲?
Theres no shame or glory for favoring one state of consciousness over another. You're not better or worse than anyone else for having your consciousness rest into any of these states.
However, these states determine how much suffering will come your way, how at peace you are with life, and color pretty much every single perception and action you take. Some wise masters call the first 3 chakras "hell" and the 3 superior ones "heaven".
By engaging with certain practices, techniques, movies, books, music & places in the world you can tune yourself in to many of these resonances.
If you want to make more $ or strengthen your character or personality, manipura is what you want to work with.
If you want more attention from the opposite sex, swadisthana can give you that.
If you want more compassion, for yourself and others, and to achieve peace and a state of contentment regardless of circumstance, anahata is the way to go.

I invite you today to see where you are standing, and honestly ask yourself if it is in sincere alignment with your higher values and greater good.
In my personal sessions i provide guidance & tools to be able to tune into each of these states yourself.
