The Chakras are energy centers which connect our physical body to our subtle bodies, connecting matter to consciousness. As well as drawing in prana or Universal Life Force these spinning wheels of energy also direct and disgorge subconscious information and although they function independently they are continuously referencing each other so a blocked or closed Chakra can negatively impact the others. The Chakras communicate with the physiological and neurological systems within the body, they govern our mental body and our emotions and they store Akashic past-life data.
Here`s a brief overview of each of the seven major Chakras and the significance of each.
Base Chakra (base of the spine/perineum) : governs family and survival issues, general vitality and tribal consciousness ie our feeling of connection to `the group`, our sense of responsibility and loyalty to that group and how we see ourselves fitting into it. Be it to our benefit or our detriment it is through the Base Chakra that we allow community energy, group thought-forms and the tribal mind to dominate our own. Whether we feel safe, secure and stable in the physical world and in our personal connections are Base Chakra issues. Through this Chakra we are anchored to our physical environment and feel a sense of groundedness to Earth.
Sacral Chakra (below the navel) : this is our center of creativity and resilience and also the center through which we connect OUTWARDS to the external world. Where the Base Chakra`s resonance is to group power the Sacral governs the way we manage and use our individual power ie money, sex, sensuality, competition, authority, influence, control, beauty and attractiveness. Our ability to generate income and manage money is governed by the Sacral Chakra. We give our power away to our addictions through this center and it is the seat of our deepest vulnerabilities.
Solar Plexus (above the navel) : this is our center of self-esteem, courage, confidence, dignity and self-respect. Through this energy center we achieve a strong sense of personal identity and empowerment. We draw and hold our loving boundaries from this Chakra and it is where we initially form our honour code. We clarify our sense of integrity and project an authentic expression of self through a healthy, clear Solar Plexus. We hold our center through this Chakra – it is where we stay true to ourself. It also governs the energy of our `gut instinct`.
These three lower Chakras essentially govern our instinctual responses and our lived experience in the dense, physical Earthly plane. We manage necessity through these three energy centers and through the Base, Sacral and Solar Plexus we connect and project outwardly to the external.
Heart : governs our ability to love and to accept love, and our availability to forming a healthy, loving relationship. We experience the emotions of joy, gratitude, devotion and forgiveness through this center, but also hate, jealousy and resentment. As author and medical intuitive Caroline Myss says, this Chakra has absolute authority to create or destroy because it is so powerful.
Throat : we make all our choices through this Chakra. It is our center of expression, manifestation and destiny and our means of exchanging ideas through language. We demonstrate/express our honour code from this center. Feelings of guilt and dishonour will be held here. Our process of spiritual awakening begins in this center.
Third Eye Chakra (center of the forehead) : this is our center of intuition and intellect and the power of this center is wisdom. It governs out intuitive guidance and whether we trust that inner voice. This link takes you to a piece I wrote about the Third Eye Chakra and its significance in the context of Healing. We co-create our reality from this energy center.
Crown (top of the head) : the spiralling flow of Universal life force or prana enters our Chakra system and our physical body through this center, providing us with the sense of connection and oneness with Spirit and `the Divine`, and unification with the All That Is. It is through this center and the Third Eye that we access the higher realms, higher consciousness and attain spiritual illumination.
Older healing techniques once held that the Chakras when open and healthy, should spin in a clockwise direction but my persistent feeling is that this is an outdated belief and arguably no longer appropriate in the post-2012 New Earth 5D paradigm. When I check the spin of the Chakras at the completion of a Healing session (using my blue agate crystal pendulum) they typically rotate counter-clockwise and this indicates clearly to me that they are attuned to, and congruous with the new and emergent Divine Feminine energetic. When the Chakras are spinning counter-clockwise this tells me they are perfectly aligned with galactic flow and Higher celestial energies, and for me this is a thing of beauty because our core essence is afterall Universal. We ourselves are a microcosm of the galaxies and the stars.
For example, the directional spin of our Solar System is counter-clockwise, which astronomers refer to as prograde rotation. If we could view it from above we would observe that almost all the bodies in the Solar System have motions that are counter-clockwise. The Sun rotates on its axis in a counter-clockwise direction. The Earth also rotates on its axis in a counter-clockwise direction and the Earth revolves around the Sun in a counter-clockwise direction. All the other large planets, and most of the asteroids also orbit the Sun in a counter-clockwise direction (a few comets orbit in a clockwise direction). Most of the planets rotate about their own axes in a counter-clockwise direction.
Another example : according to PhysicsWorld.com a study catalogued the rotational direction of 15,158 spiral galaxies with data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and found that galaxies have a preferred direction of rotation – there was an excess of counter-clockwise rotating spiral galaxies in the part of the sky toward the north pole of the Milky Way.
The natural flow of the Divine Feminine energetic – anchoring on Earth since around 2005 and steadily amplifying – is a counter-clockwise movement and the sacred geometry of the Merkabah energy field is evidence of this. Looking at the star tetrahedron in the image below – this is the sacred geometry of the Merkabah light field – it consists of two tetrahedrons and these work to harmonize male and female energy. The top tetrahedron represents the masculine electrical/thought energy and it spins clockwise. The bottom tetrahedron represents the feminine magnetic/emotion energy and spins counter-clockwise. The Merkabah is the transportation vehicle of the Human Light body, facilitating interdimensional and interstellar travel and allowing access to multidimensional consciousness. The power of this supreme energy field that surrounds our auric field is immense and is a powerful tool for ascension.

I really loved the colours in this illustration of the Merkabah (in the image above). The vivid magenta pink and fluorescent emerald green often present to me during meditation – magenta representing the male, emerald representing the female – and moreso since we passed through 2017`s Diamond Emerald gateway (August) which gave us access to 12th Dimensional consciousness and new information. As our Awareness expands previously unseen colours become visible.
In nature counter-clockwise patterns can be seen in the flow of ocean gyres which are large systems of circular ocean currents formed by global wind patterns and forces created by Earth’s rotation. Ocean gyres in the masculine Northern hemisphere rotate clockwise and gyres in the Southern hemisphere rotate counter-clockwise, because the Southern Hemisphere embodies the feminine aspect of Earth.
I love a counter-clockwise Chakra vortex because it tells me that that energy center is in total harmony with galactic Intelligence and it is also in sync with Earth`s new, post-2012 operating system ie the Fifth Dimension and the emergent Divine Feminine harmonic. The Feminine is the energy of allowing rather than striving. It is receptivity, unity, compassion, healing, wholeness, ease, flow and above all it is kindness. It is Being as opposed to the Masculine which directs.
