A short map through the Chakras
There is a lot to cover in awakening and the chakras can be a mystery to people, with a lot of symbolism and abstract metaphors. I’ve written this piece from the perspective of somebody coming to an immediate awakening and looking at the world for the first time with an awakened consciousness. They’ll go on a journey of realisation from the base line of first-person perception. Recognising their own personal truth to life and also, how they are related to the greater universal truths.
I’ve kept it as simple as I could, have fun reading and take every step as it is. No need to over think it, just let it flow through you. If you don’t get parts that’s ok…keep going with what is flowing.
Root Chakra: Stillness: The Stillness of Presence
Imagine you came into existence fully awake. The first thing you would realise is that the truth of the first chakra is the present moment and it is eternal.
You would say “I am”….”I am present”… “I am here now”.
The personal truth of the Root Chakra is the present moment, when you awaken to the moment you say “I am present, I am in the moment”, awakening one’s conscious awareness. As a universal truth you realise you are the ‘now’; the awakening of eternal being.
A great question to ask yourself is: who am I when I am continually present? This is your authentic self.
Sacral Chakra: Radiance: The Radiance of Life Force
As you look around you see life and realise the truth of the Sacral Chakra; that the wheel of life is eternal. You are not just present, you’re also alive, and you say “I am alive”. You feel your life force moving through you.
The personal truth of the Sacral Chakra is your life force, the awakening to one’s aliveness. As a personal truth it is “I am alive”. As a universal truth you are ‘Life’ the realisation of eternal radiant being.
Another great question to ask yourself is: who are you when you are present and radiant? This is your radiant self.
Solar Plexus: Personal Power: The Power of Vibrancy
As you explore the vastness of life you come to the truth of the Solar Plexus Chakra, you see life is abundant in its variation. The wheel of life is eternally overflowing with infinite forms of life. You’re not just present and alive; you’re also vital with abundance.
The personal truth of the Solar Plexus Chakra is vital abundance, the awakening to one’s personal power. As a personal truth you say: “I am abundant” and as a universal truth you realise ‘abundance’ the awakening of boundless potential.
The question: Who am I when I am present, radiant and abundant?
Heart Chakra: The Bond: The Joy of Love
As you hold your inner stillness radiating your abundant nature, you notice there is a bond that is connecting everything to everything else. It stops everything from floating away from each other, yet at the same time it stops everything from collapsing in on each other. A cohesiveness that holds everything together in the one space. This is the yielding nature of the bond we call love. You say “I am bonded”.
The personal truth of the Heart Chakra is: “I am bonded”, the awakening to one’s inner love. As a universal truth you realise ‘Love’ the awakening of universal heart.
The question: who am I when I am present, radiant, abundant, and full of loves joy?
Throat Chakra: Wisdom: The Wholeness of Truth
Within the stillness of awareness, you notice energy moves, radiating frequencies of power which resonate within the bond. You come to realise that these frequencies are truth itself. All wisdom is ever present and available to all who attune. You say “I am wise, I am truth”.
The personal truth of the throat chakra is “I am wise”, the awakening of your ‘knowing’. As a universal truth you realise ‘Truth’ the awakening of universal wisdom.
The question: who am I when I am present, radiant, abundant, joyous and whole?
Third Eye Chakra: Understanding: The Seer of Insight
From the perception of wholeness, you look from every possible angle, so much so that no matter where you look there you are. The stillness of being is ever present and radiant as you move through the ebb and flow of life. Your personal power is in every step, your joy a close companion, your truth indeed and action. At one-point understanding becomes complete and the seer awakens never to sleep again. Insight comes unfiltered, direction perception is your constant companion. You say “I see, I understand”.
The personal truth of the Third Eye Chakra is “I see”, the awakening of the seer. As a universal truth you realise ‘consciousness’ the awakening of Omni Presence.
The question: who am I when I am present, radiant, abundant, joyous, whole and complete?
The Crown Chakra: Freedom: The Lightness of Authenticity
As you come to completeness within yourself there is only one thing left to do…. and that’s to release yourself and be free.
The personal truth of the crown chakra is “I am free”, the awakening of the authentic self. As a universal truth you realise ‘light’, the awakening of absolute self, the being of light.
The question: who am I when I am present, radiant, abundant, joyous, whole, complete and light?
The journey goes deeper
Now imagine layering the seven chakras into each other. This is where you experience the spiralling effect of the chakras.
Root Chakra: be here now, live the moment, the abundant now, the present heart, moments joy, the unfiltered now, the authentic self.
Sacral Chakra: life’s drive, a radiant life, an abundant life, the heart of living, living wisdom, a fulfilled life, authentic living.
And so on…through each chakra, each having its own story of awakening. Guiding us to find our truth story and release our suffering. Opening our potential and actualising our deepest dreams. From awakening to realisation, from realisation to actualisation. You are free!
