Someone recently sent me a link about closing chakras. This is the second time I have been alerted to this idea. People who close down their own chakras seem to feel a lot of benefit. The idea is that chakras have been put in us to control us, and provide nodes for bad forces to attach to. The bad forces can then transmit stuff into us that harms us, or drain our good energy. If you close down these connections, you get rid of this invasion.
I have a lot of sympathy with this idea, and my own experience matches this. However I still find I have a certain attachment to the idea of open chakra.
In most of my earlier life, I went around feeling as if I had control nodes on the top of my head, controlled by my mother, and later on by others. Mothers are trained to train their kids this way, so the kids grow up to be controlled by others. It took a major traumatic life event (that I probably crashed into as a result of the control) to turn my life around. A year or more of counselling and a change of life patterns and I felt I had got rid of the control nodes and I was in charge of myself.
That was before I had ever heard of chakra.
I can now see that the control nodes on my head were actually my crown chakra. So that’s one I no longer use! One I have closed down and feel better for doing so.
I think there may be uses for chakra as tools when needed, providing you are in control of opening and closing them yourself. Experienced psychics always open their chakra if they are helping or healing someone, and then close the chakra at the end of the session. This way, they cannot get any extra energy drained out of them by psychic vampires.
Psychics and healers are often exhausted by a healing session because they are giving their energy. I find I automatically do this with my children. But as they get older, I almost need to break this connection like cutting the umbilical cord, so that they can break free from dependence on me.
If you go around with your chakras open for anything all the time, you will constantly be drained and manipulated. Having all your chakras closed is a good idea for getting some peace, cutting out the endless interference. You will not get any of the bad stuff. Phew, if you have had a life of torment, that will be an amazing transformation.
My personal feeling at this point in time is that, even better than having the chakras constantly closed, is to have an awareness of your chakras so that you can be the gatekeeper to them all. You can receive that which is good, when you need to receive something, and you can transmit and use your own power for good, possibly healing others. We have the ability to communicate and share electromagnetically with each other through our chakras. This would make the internet obsolete, if only we could master it.
The Internet is a good analogy to chakra, as it is a way of connecting outside of yourself. I get peace and rest when I get off the Internet, close down my computer. But then I open it up again and I have a whole load of emails etc waiting to come in to me. Some are bad, some are good. Sometimes there are just too many. Same with chakra. Similarly I can use the internet to broadcast what I need to say. The powers that be are always interfering with the Internet and trying to control it, but we can still use it successfully for our own ends, the benefit of humanity. Same with chakra. If I had the Internet on all the time, I would soon get overloaded and sick and feel drained. People who are never on the Internet do just fine. Same with chakra.
I think there is a lot of relearning of chakra skills required for nearly all of us, and we are all beginners with no teacher. Like any other tool, you need to know how to handle it in order to use it wisely.
We have been seeing a lot of Opening and Closing Ceremonies on the World Stage recently, including inaugurations of Popes and Presidents. Maybe the purpose of the World Stage ceremonies is to open our chakras, or even a giant world chakra, so that they can access us.
I wonder if we could work out a similar, but simple process for doing the same with each of our chakras, as and when we want to use them. Under our own control. Not anyone else’s. With a bit of practise, we might get quite good at it.
