The ancients paid attention to the six centers in human body and the seventh one above the head, over the top of the head, and among these seven places there are the ones that are most often used in practices; they are in the centre of abdomen below the navel, inside breast under the breastbone and inside the head above the eyebrow line! Abdomen, heart and third eye centre are probably the Chakras that are most often used in all groups and circles of internal development, psychotronics or in mysterious, deep moves of religious spiritual, psychical and physical rebirth. Six body centers of energy refer to six senses, and the responsibility for the sixth sense, for supernatural perception, is in the Chakra located inside the head, called the Eye of Shiva or the Eye of Horus, which is vertical to physical eyes, under the forehead, where it is sometimes symbolically painted. Usually one Chakra is good for different types of people as the main place of focusing and the feeling of oneself. Perception, feeling of your own centre of gravity in abdomen under the navel is often used in eastern martial arts, and also in Indian Kalarpayat, mother of spiritual martial arts. Main meditation subject of the abdomen centre is connected with the water element, and also artistry, palate and taste. People of religious and intuitional personality usually focus on the heart centre, in the middle of breasts somewhere up from the line of nipples. Contemplation subject here is the wind, breath and feeling of situation and mercy or sympathy. People with outstanding mentality, working with their minds, usually spontaneously concentrate inside the head in the area of the Third or rather the Single Eye, because this is the way this sixth basic centre was called by Master Jesus, and remains of this are still present in Gospels and apocrypha.
Six body centers are six places of focusing and concentration, which is connected with the elements, senses, features and numbers of vibrations, because Chakras in their basic picture are described as subtle organs of the soul which look like a Lotus flower with a certain number of petals. Padma, the Lotus, is an elementary representation of Chakras and every school of Yoga, Tantra or Ayurveda teach to create the picture of a flower with a certain number of petals, a flower growing upwards, when we stand or sit; it is always recommended to students to visualize, imagine the flower with a numeral vibration, as soon as they start learning about Chakras. The number of Petals, sound vibrations of inner self, the Lotus centre, glamour of light and, above all, the appropriate location of one of the two most important Lotuses among the central vertical line of the body that joins the womb area with the head; result in the nectar of the bases. The main body Chakras are located along the central vertical body canal, known as Sushumna or Vajra, which starts between the anus and the external sexual organ (clitoris for women), and ends inside the body at the top of the skull with the gathering of appropriate smaller energy canals symbolized with the petals of flowers, which are in fact vibrations of auras which flow there.
The basic Lotus, the Padma of Container, the Vessel of Root, Basis, is a beautiful flower with four petals and, which belongs to Yoga or Tantra practice, when we sit on the ground with the legs crossed, we can have the impression that the whole womb-anus area is located in the interior of the Lotus flower with four petals. Main, elementary practice helpful for purifying and developing the Lotus flower is Bija Mantra, the appropriate vibration referring to the point of the centre, with the centre of Chakra, and in case of Muladhara (the Root Container) it is resonant, deep LAM syllable, or rather the “L” sound with very short “a” and very nasal “m” at the end. It’s important that the resonance of sound is produced authentically, deeply from the hips, womb or the coccyx. To achieve it, you only need some exercises and practice. This practice is made with voice vibration, recitation without which you shouldn’t work on purifying and developing Lotus, the Chakra, because this sound is indeed the basis of work with any kind of Lotus. Who cares about Chakra development, he will work a lot with such a syllable enlarging the Earth’s magnetism, and also improving the sense of smell.
Chakra of the basis is used for perception of energy flowing from the planet Earth, but it’s also a location of sand and rock energy, the earth element, and this energy is of a yellow colour. Muladhara is the location of Kundalini power, which is the power of trust, faith and religious zealousness connected with the female nature or Divine form, with Goddess cult, and it’s not allowed to be practiced without zealous reverence for high Goddess of heaven, especially for a female creature of the God of the Absolute, which in Jewish religion is called Shekinah, and in Indian tradition – Shakti, Devi or Amma. Without religious cult, zealous reverence and devotion, trust and faith for Guru and Goddess, there is no possibility of awakening Kundalini, although you can suffer from many psychedelic visions and abnormal experiences. Kundalini in other words is the power or energy of Matrix, Divine Mother, Goddess or the wife of the God of Heaven, also called the fire of Earth. The second Lotus has six petals, and the WAM syllable inside. To develop and purify it, and its element is, as it has already been mentioned, water, and the sense is taste. The third Lotus, located between the navel and breastbone, at the level of the stomach and solar plexus is the centre of ten petals symbolizing five Yama rules and five Niyamah rules, the commandments and moral forces, its syllable for intonation in a vibrating way is RAM, it’s the Lotus of Fire, its sense is the sense of sight and the rule of seeing. The fourth Lotus is colloquially called the heart centre or the centre of soul’s song, it has twelve petals referring to zodiac signs, which are real months of solar year, and its element is wind, its sense is the sense of touch (feeling), and its sound is YAM. An important symbol of the heart centre is a 6-pointed Star known to Christian and Jewish mystics as the Star of David.
The fifth Lotus is located round neck’s basis at the top of the trunk like a Wreath (Dala). It is awakened and developed by a strong vibrating Ham syllable, and its element is ether, spirit, space, in Sanskrit – Akasha. Chakra of Third Eye, or rather Ajna. As seminal, source syllable, which can purify, grow and develop, it has the OM syllable, and it sounds like a combination of sounds of A, U and M in only one vibration, like humming Polish Ą sound. The picture of Chakra, or actually the Lotus with two petals is mainly recommended for beginners, and it is connected with the location point of the Sixth Sense, responsible for Love and Wisdom or rather Devotion and Wisdom. Everyone who really wants to develop his Third Eye must work for years with vibrating Om syllable with his voice along the Sushumna line up to the head, because there are no other methods but vibrating with voice. The development of the seventh centre above the head we should start with vibrating AIM sound, and that’s the centre of the Divine Will represented by a Lotus of Thousands petals. But for this you need a more experienced Guru!
