Welcome to the journey!

"It is the tremendous experience
of becoming conscious,
which nature has laid upon mankind,
which unites the most diverse
cultures in a common task."
Carl G Jung

Welcome to the start of our journey, as we work our way through Anodea Judith's Chakra Balancing kit.

In the Chakra Balancing Workbook, Judith says the Chakra System is a map for the journey through life. Its seven rainbow colours represent the full spectrum of human possibility that stretches from the ordinary to the extraordinary, from Earth to Heaven, forming a bridge and describing the steps between them.

This map is an archetypal formula for wholeness that addresses the full spectrum of human possibility.

To navigate its territory is to take an exciting journey of awakening -- in body, mind, and spirit.


"There is a bridge between time and eternity; this bridge is the individual soul, the Jiva."

Chandogya Upanishad

There are many challenges on this journey.

Try something new, and you might feel buterflies in your stomach. Try to speak up, and you might get a lump in your throat. Fall in love and you might feel your heart leap with joy and fear. These are all common activities that happen through your chakras. They occur for most people quite by accident. Sometimes the experiences are better than others.

Learning about the chakras gives you access to your programmed responses so you can minimise their negative effects and maximise their positive ones. But furst you need to understand just what the chakras are and how they work in your energy body.

The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel or disk and signifies one of seven basic energy centers in the body. Each of these centres correlates to major nerve ganglia branching forth from the spinal column. In addition the chakras also correlate to levels of consciousness, archetypal elements, developmental stages of life, colors, sounds, body functions, and much, much more.

You can read more about Anodea Judith and the chakras here and and you'll also find some articles.

Those of you who have the kit, begin with CD one. Part One takes you on a journey through the general territory of the chakras. Its purpose is to make initial contact with your own energy centres and their and their contents.

Next week we'll explore how to deepen your connection to your first chakra.
