Raising vibrations to help humanity
This discussion pertains to Energies: Auric Bodies & Chakras module
of the Little Red Schoolhouse course of study.
This is a good overview of auras, given by Jim Self of MasteringAlchemy.com at https://masteringalchemy.com/content/essential-energy-tools-part-3-0. It's on track 3, takes 7mins 45secs. A chart of the auric bodies and chakras is below the notes.
Notes for those who don't have time to listen:
"The aura is an energy field around you. It has seven layers. The layers can be tight or expansive. They enclose you, front, back, top, bottom. These are also known as the etheric body. All knowledge is stored there. All memories are stored there. From all lives you've lived. Oddly, the past life part is stored behind you.
"We have a flawless internal guidance system. But we began to stop relying on it. Instead, we went outside ourselves. We began to ignore it and it fell into disuse.
"This internal guidance system is so clear "where you ask your question is where the answer exists."
"The energy field is an octohedron and acts as an antenna, transmitter and receiver, like a radio or an old television. It is focused precisely on the answers to every question you have. It allows you to move in and out of dimensional consciousness, allows you to align with the 4th, 5th, and 6th dimensional thought realms. It simply allows energy to be right where you want it, when you ask the question.
"But, we've forgotten and, in the course of forgetting, the energy field became very amorphic and it does not have any definition, so consequently other people's emotions, thoughts, and the environment itself, including other people's reactions to emotions, thoughts and environment are constantly moving through you, affecting you in many, many ways, most of which is unconscious, but will also in a conscious manner trigger numbers of emotions, pictures, memories, considerations, and beliefs that you hold, which have you given you problems all your life.
"The reason being, mostly, let's focus on beliefs. Beliefs that don't belong to you. When we moved away from our internal guidance system, we moved away from our own truths and the truth of others were placed in our space. Because we didn't have good filters, we accepted those statements, in many cases like putting on a new coat and made it our own.
"Many truths of others aren't our truths. When we start to hear people talk, we have filters that allow us to not feel good about ourselves, or not believe we know what we're doing, or don't believe in ourselves in one manner or another. You know those places.
"What we're doing tonight is re-acclimating to this antenna system that's in the geometric structure that defines the aura."

The following excerpts are from the Glossary of The Yoga of Jesus (which is a book of excerpts taken from the main work, The Second Coming of Christ, a 1,600 page, two-volume set), both by Paramahansa Yogananda. In it, he goes through the Gospels in detail and relates them to Yoga (the Eastern science of God-union). Yoga, as the Western world knows it in the form of physical exercises, is just a small part.
Man's body is unique among all creatures and possesses seven spiritual cerebrospinal centers of divine consciousness in which the descended Spirit is templed. These are described in Revelation as the seven seals, and as seven stars, and seven churches, with their seven angels and seven golden candlesticks.
These are the centers of life and consciousness in the spine and brain, which enliven the physical and astral bodies of man. These centers are referred to as chakras (wheels) because the concentrated energy in each one is like a hub from which radiate rays of life-giving light and energy.
The seven centers are divinely planned exits or "trap doors" through which the soul has descended into the body and through which it must reascend by a process of meditation.
Each of the seven chakras are governed by spiritual laws, principles of consciousness that we can use to cultivate greater harmony, happiness, and well-being in our lives and in the world.
The root chakra, known in Sanskrit as muladhara, is located at the base of the spine. It governs your most basic survival needs. When this chakra is clear and energy flows through it freely, we feel secure and confident that we can easily fulfill our needs. However, blockage in this area can cause us to feel anxious and worried.
The spiritual Law of Karma governs the first energy center. On the physical plane, every action you perform results in a corresponding reaction. To maximize the possibility that your actions generate evolutionary reactions, you can use your body as a choice determining instrument.
Consider the possibilities in front of you and listen to signals from your body. These sensations generating from the root chakra are either comfortable or uncomfortable. Your body evaluates every possible decision in terms of its likelihood to meet your needs for safety or increase the level of threat you experience. The first chakra, which connects you with the earth, provides essential information as to the potential nourishment or toxicity that is available to you as a result of the actions you are taking.
The creativity chakra, called svadhishtana, is associated with creativity in all its expressions. Located in the area of your sexual organs, the energy of this center can be used for biological reproduction. When channeled into higher energy centers, it fuels the creative force that enables you to paint a beautiful picture, build a business, or create a life of love and abundance.
The Law of Least Effort is lively in the second chakra. When your vital energy is flowing through your center of creativity, you co-create your life. The solution to every problem is rarely on the level of the problem. Rather, it comes from a deeper domain of creativity. Creativity is the process of taking the same raw material and creating different contexts and relationships between the components.
For example, when a composer creates a new piece of music, he is using the same notes in a new relationship with one another other, resulting in the emergence of something that did not exist before. The second chakra utilizes the raw material of the root chakra to create the world anew each day.
The energy chakra, manipura, is localized in your solar plexus. It’s the seat of your power in the world. When this center is open and flowing, you are capable of translating your intentions and desires into manifestation. When it is blocked, you feel frustrated and ineffectual.
The Law of Intention and Desire governs the third chakra. The seeds of intentions and desires reside in your personal soul. Nourishing the seeds you wish to germinate with your attention will lead to their full expression. It is important to be clear about your intentions so you are not surprised when they bear fruit.
The process of manifesting your desires is to first bring them into consciousness, followed by expanding your awareness through meditation, and finally releasing your intentions and detaching from the outcome. You can control your actions, however you cannot control the fruit of your actions. Keep your life energy flowing freely through your third chakra and the light and heat of your intentions will radiate on the world.
The heart chakra represents the unifying energy of love and compassion. Known as anahata, it is located at the center of the chest. The heart chakra is dedicated to overcoming separation and division. When the heart center is blocked, there is a sense of alienation from others. When the heart center is open and flowing, you feel connected at a deep level to all beings in your life.
The Law of Giving and Receiving governs the heart chakra. Love can take many different forms at different stages of life. The love of child for her mother is different than a mother’s love for her child. A friend’s love is different than that of a passionate lover or the love of a student for his teacher. However so, the common thread in each of these expressions of love is the impulse to unify—to overcome separation. This is the nature of the heart.
Every act of giving is simultaneously an act of receiving. Each time you welcome a gift into your life, you are providing the opportunity for someone to give. Just as a healthy physical heart receives blood from the periphery which it then oxygenates and pumps back out, your emotional heart stays healthy by receiving and giving love in all its forms.
The throat chakra, called visshuddha in Sanskrit, is the center of expression. When the fifth chakra is open and flowing, you have the confidence that you are capable of communicating your needs. When the fifth chakra is obstructed, a person will often feel that they are not being heard. In order to feel alive and empowered, it’s important that this energy center is clear. Blockages in this area are often associated with thyroid problems or chronic neck pain.
The Law of Detachment governs the throat chakra. An open fifth chakra enables you to express your truth without concern for censors or critics. This does not mean you say things that are intentionally hurtful or insensitive. On the contrary, people with open centers of communication are skillful in expressing their needs in ways that are life supporting. Anxiety over how people will react to your views does not arise when energy is flowing freely through the chakra of expression.
The Law of Detachment reminds you that you can choose your words and actions, but you cannot control the response to your words and action. When your intentions are clear, and your heart is open, you will spontaneously demonstrate right speech trusting that the universe will handle the details.
The intuition chakra, known in Sanskrit as ajna, is located in the forehead. It is the center of insight and intuition. When this center is open, you have a deep sense of connection to your inner voice, and feel guided in your choices. When blocked, there is a sense of self-doubt and distrust. The opening of this chakra is usually associated with a clear sense of connection to ones dharma, or purpose in life.
The Law of Dharma or Cause and Effect governs the sixth chakra. You have within you a wise voice guiding you to express the highest aspects of your nature. Listen to this still inner voice, which is guiding you to manifest your full potential. Quiet the internal turbulence that is filled with the voices of others so you can identify the sound of your own soul. It has only one desire—for you to remember your essential nature as a spark of the divine.
The consciousness chakra, known as dahaswara, is visualized as a lotus flower at the crown of the head. When the lotus unfolds its petals, the memory of wholeness is restored. Remember that your essential nature is unbounded, and that you are spirit in disguise as a person. This is the full expression of yoga – the unification of being with action, of universality with individuality.
The Law of Pure Potentiality governs the seventh chakra. When your roots are receiving nourishment from the earth in the first chakra, your creative juices are flowing in the second, your intentions are empowered in the third, your heart is open and exchanging love with those around you in the fourth, you are spontaneously expressing your highest self in the fifth, you are in touch with your inner voice in the sixth, only then, does energy move into the crown chakra and you remember your essential nature as infinite and unbounded. The thousand-petaled lotus flower unfolds and you know yourself as a spiritual being temporarily localized to a body and mind.
The Yoga of Meditation The Upanishads tell us, “As great as the infinite space beyond is the space within the lotus of the heart.” From the time of your birth, you have been called to explore the world outside of you. Meditation is the exploration of your inner world. Yoga encourages you to be as familiar with your inner world of thoughts, feelings, memories, desires, and imagination as you are with the outer world. When you can move through both the inner and outer domains of life with freedom and joy, you fulfill the highest purpose of yoga.

There are also new chakras opening up with those who are kundalini active. I had a reading/healing by a talented healer earlier this summer, and she had told me that I have a new chakra opening up between my solar plexus and my heart chakra. :-)
Good to know. We'll get into more advanced things, like the new 12-chakra system later on.
Love the aura pictures, they are so cool! I'd love to see my aura since my kundalini is active.
I'd like to see it, too.
