Vishuddhi chakra

Sahaja Yoga Vishuddhi chakra

The Vishuddhi chakra, situated at the throat level, governs communication. If the Vishuddhi on the right side becomes overactive then the person becomes loud, aggressive, disrespectful towards others. The Vishuddhi on the left side becomes affected when one feels guilty. When this happens one can become shy, timid, sly or sarcastic. If one indulges into feels of guilt too much this can result in angina, or even cervical cancer. The centre Vishuddhi when affected causes a person to have difficulties communicating with others.

Qualities of the Vishuddhi chakra are: diplomacy, sweetness of speech, collectivity, collective consciousness (by being connected to the same source we become aware of each other as well as the source), witness power (the ability to be detached in any situation and not to get caught up in it), and on the left side, the brother-sister relationship as well as self-confidence.

Feeling guilty is usually a form of escapism, and stops us from facing ourselves, and in particular, our ego. Through introspection we can find out if we are indulging into feelings of guilt in this way and so stop ourselves from falling into this trap. In the West we are also conditioned to think of ourselves as “sinners” and this contributes to our sense of guilt. The affirmation “Mother, I am not guilty” helps to neutralise these negative conditionings which stop the kundalini from rising.

The Hamsa chakra, situated between the eyebrows, is also part of the Vishuddhi and has the quality of discrimination, enabling us to determine which action is appropriate at any point. It also governs our sense of intuition, and through meditation our sense of intuition can become strongly developed.

The Vishuddhi chakra governs the throat, teeth, face and mouth. It also has another very important aspect in Sahaja yoga, in that it enables our sense of vibrations. Sometimes people don’t feel vibrations at the beginning, just after getting their Self-realisation, because this centre is out of balance, but as their vibrations improve they start to feel them.

The witness state is very important in that it allows us to detach ourselves from our ego and superego and from the situation that we are in. When our ego or superego reacts in a situation we observe these rather than identifying with them.

Did you see the sky, how beautiful it was? How orange, blue, all kinds of colours were there. The colour it takes, automatically, and is enjoying it. It is not bothered that it should remain forever, that this will go away when there is darkness. Just watching! The sky is just watching. Whatever comes its way, it takes it. So, it’s so beautiful and it’s so joy-giving.

So the another thing is that, when you are in that state of spirituality, then you are joy-giving, you are peace giving, you are compassionate and you love each other. All these problems of the ego just disappear. Ego is your greatest enemy I think, and it is the one that really hinders all the wealth and beauty of your life. So if you could just see this ego, how it works, just you’ll be enjoying it. It’s a drama it plays, alright? Let’s have it! You can see the drama and then suddenly you will be amazed that you are not in it, you are watching it. When you are detached from your ego you can see how it tries to entice you.

Agnya chakra

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

The Agnya, situated in the middle of the brain, is the gateway to the last energy centre, the Sahasrara Chakra, and so it is the penultimate step on the journey to our Self-realization, our yoga, our union with Divinity.

It is the Kundalini, the life force within each one of us, rising from its coils at the base of the spine, in the sacrum bone, rising up through each of the energy centres, and eventually piercing through the bone at the top of the head, the bone that was soft in our babyhood – the fontenelle bone – it is the freeing and activating and rising up of this Kundalini energy that brings about our enlightenment, our moksha, our Self-realization. And to our great good fortune, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, the founder of Sahaja Yoga, has found a very simple way for us to take this wonderful leap forward in our evolution, this realization of the Self, this manifestation of the Spirit, this ability to feel the very essence of our being on our central nervous system. Self-realisation is a great gift, through which we gain sweet meditation, our health, well-being, peace and joy. Our oneness with the Spirit.

The Agnya. Sixth of the main energy centres, situated at the crossing of the optic thalamus (the pineal and pituuitary glands). It influences, and is influenced by, what we see, what we hear, what we think. The day of the week that the Agnya chakra is associated with is Sunday, its colour is white, its planet is the sun, its element is light (this is very important – we’ll be coming back to it) its gemstone is diamond, its place on the hand – where we can feel if the Agnya energy centre is clear and doing its job – or not – is the ring finger, and the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ was directly related to the opening up of this chakra.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the outset we should know that truth is what it is and we cannot change it, we cannot organize it. And the truth cannot be known only at the human awareness. It requires a subtler consciousness to know the truth. So what is the truth? The truth is that you are not this body and you are not your mind, you are not these emotions. Nor you are your conditionings or your ego. You are pure Spirit. And the second truth is that all the living work is done by a subtle power which is called as Paramchaitanya in Sanskrit language. Or we can say by the All pervading power of Divine Love.

We take all living work for granted. We see these beautiful flowers that have come out of very small seeds, I mean, we never even think how this work has taken place. Then we see such a balance in the nature. A apple tree grows up to a height, a rosebush grows up to a height – who controls it? So when we try to think about it, we reach a point that we do not know everything. Also we do not know the absolute truth. Truth has to be one, but there are so many opinions, so many ideologies, so many religions, so many quarrels. Why should there be any quarrels if they are based on truth? So whatever I am telling you, you have to take a position of a scientist who has an open mind to know everything. And whatever I tell you, you have to take it as a hypothesis. And then if it is true then you have to accept it, as honest people.
