Experiences Signs Symptoms
The word "Chakra" in the Sanskrit language literally means "wheel". The
human body is generally acknowledged to have seven major such energetic
wheels or centers, felt and seen as spinning pulsing vortices of energy
and light. The pulse of these chakras typically follows the breath,
radiating out and drawing in. If the Kundalini is the core or vertical
trunk of our energy system, the chakras are its horizontal branches,
connecting in to and out of this core at various levels and dimensions.
The chakras also act as transformers to step up or down the higher and
lower energies and frequencies so they may flow measured and in balance.
As the healing energies are working in various chakra centers, you
are likely to experience a lot of old repressed memories, sensations and
feelings... all part of your "Process". These experiences are signposts
indicating areas the work is affecting, and the stages of your
unfoldment. Do not get attached to any one feeling or sensation - as
they are part of the phenomenal reality, they will all shift and change
from moment to moment. Remember - you are not your process -
underneath it all, you are perfection. The purpose of the healing
work is to release all that prevents your human self from fully
realizing this. Depending on the chakras being stimulated, the signs and
symptoms of this releasing or "processing" vary.
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel like your head
is being operated on - like someone is sticking needles or rods in your
skull (or pulling them out). You might have migraines headaches
- signs that energy blocks are being worked on. When stuck energies
are released, you may have tingling sensations and or heat in your body
(especially in your spine, head, hands and feet). There may be shooting
sensations of electricity running through your spinal cord, and bursts
and explosions of inner lights. Intuitions may come easily without
having to think - you just know what's "True".
When this chakra - also known as the "3rd Eye" - is stimulated and
opens up, you may have a tingling electrical sensation on your brow (or
just sense a pressure). You may see colors, shadows, images, sparkling
lights, auras, or spirits (and ghosts). Past life scenarios may play out
within your inner vision, and your dreams may become vivid and seem
THROAT - 5TH CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel like speaking
copiously and quickly, or singing spontaneously and energetically. You
may hear inner sounds, songs, voices or noise. Your telepathy opens up
and you can sense people's hidden thoughts and intentions. Words and
sounds start to have more power and meaning, and you can feel the
vibrations of people just by their words.
HEART - 4TH CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel it flutter or
ache - this indicates that your heart is going through "growing
pains", expanding in its capacity to love. When sadness is being
released, you may cry or weep profusely over the slightest things, or
for no reason at all. The heart is a very sensitive center - it feels
everything very deeply. You may have periods where you love everyone..
and everything is beautiful and lovely.
SOLAR PLEXUS - 3RD CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, fears may be released
in the form of body shakes, or as a loosening of the bowels (diarrhea).
When anger is being released, you may feel like yelling and
screaming, and all of a sudden feel nauseous and throw up. You may
project a more powerful presence you did not have before, as your words
are imbued with authority and intensity.
ASTRAL - 2ND CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may have all sorts
of sexual thoughts and feelings. Over many lifetimes, you have had many
intimate relationships with many souls. If there are any suppressed and
unfulfilled sexual energies and attachments with any of them, this
will make itself known, or will be processed astrally in your dreams
(which helps conveniently avoid the awkwardness of societal
constraints). When the energies (and karmas) of these connections are
complete, these relationships may shift into a more unconditional form
of love, or they will totally release and fall away.
ROOT - 1ST CHAKRA
When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, you may feel warmth or
intense heat in different parts of your body, especially at the base of
your spine. Your body may feel very heavy and grounded into the earth,
and you may start to gain weight. Your feet may become very sensitive,
and you may feel spiraling (vortex) energies going up and down. Your
physical connection to nature, the planet, growing and nurturing things
(and people) becomes very important.
Signs and Symptoms
The higher consciousness and its associated vibrations and energies,
accelerate the release of any stuckness or stagnation in ones lower
being and energy field. Depending on the souls agenda and the
degree and amount of resistance, this releasing process can be
intense or gentle.
Distortions in Space and Time
Your material 3-D awareness may shift into and out of various dimensions
and you may experience feelings of spatial temporal bodily
disorientation - not knowing "where" or "when" you are (in space and
time). This is a temporary phenomenon that lasts until you have
adjusted, integrated and grounded these new higher energies vibrations
Aches and Pains
Aches and pains help us be aware of our energy flows, or rather, where
they are not flowing (this is one way our body gives us feedback on what
is going on "in there"). As the higher consciousness, vibrations and
energies move into those places in your body-mind where you are holding
old stuck stagnant energies (otherwise known as "blocks") it may feel
like an ache or pain, this includes headaches and flue like symptoms.
These symptoms indicate that the physical body is attempting to release
that which is out of harmony and does not fit - the negativity and
toxins that have been held inside. these symptoms are perfectly normal
and indication that the bodies spiritual energetic immune system is
working. Continue the healing work - when the blocks have been
completely released, the aches and pains will go away.
The "dream time" is where many issues (accumulated over many lifetimes)
are processed through the subconscious mind. Dreams may be vivid,
violent, sexual, perverse, bizarre, non-sensical, nightmarish,
otherworldly, even alien (if it can be imagined, it can be dreamed).
Your mind can only use what metaphors, symbols and images have been
programmed into its "computer banks". These "images" may not exactly
follow past or present life events, but they are the best
approximation of how your mind interprets them. It's not so
important for the conscious ego mind to try and make sense of the
details and story line of these events, as much as it is the processing
of the energies behind them that is key.
Sleeping is one of the ways our conscious ego-mind copes with being
energetically or emotionally overwhelmed. Similarly, the higher
consciousness. vibrations and energies experienced in a
healing will stir up deep unresolved issues, the processing of
which may make you feel fatigued and lethargic. During this time, your
conscious ego mind - that part of you that wants to analyze and
rationalize - is put on hold (put to sleep) which helps to process on
deeper levels of your soul. When your subconscious mind reaches a
saturation point and can take no more (or when your ego-mind again takes
hold), you shift back into bodily consciousness and wake up.
Healing of any kind takes up a tremendous amount of physical and
psychic energy to process. If you are subject to any additional
stimulation, this may add more fuel to that fire. If so, you may
experience such an exaggerated sensitivity to your surroundings that you
may become intolerant to and easily overwhelmed by external stimulations
of any kind, be it odd random noises, music, traffic sounds, the TV,
people talking, bright or multi colored lights, a smell, strong foods,
jarring movements, a touch, or even textures. When you are feeling
"fed up", take a break - do something or go somewhere that helps you
process your stuff in peace: exercise at the gym, go for a walk in the
park, take a leisurely drive out in the country, or stay in your room
and sleep. Whatever works for you, do it.
As the higher consciousness, vibrations and energies come in to your
cellular biological emotional systems, issues connected to your diet may
appear, including cellular memories of feasts and famines. You may
fixate on emotionally charged "comfort foods", go through periods of
mood swings with unusual cravings, or have a complete loss of appetite.
Your body is trying to adjust and balance - don't fight, don't judge -
processing the higher energies require a lot of nutritional support. The
changes that healing brings can be hard on your body emotions and
mind so be gentle with your self. If you are experiencing weight gains,
this most likely indicates you are still holding on to something
(be it energetic, emotional, vibrational or mental). Keep doing the
healing work - this will assist your releasing process. Continue to
exercise, eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water.
Dazed and Confused
You may go through phases when you feel spaced out, your speech may
be muddled or confused, and you may have a hard time remembering things.
You may think you are going insane or must have some serious mental
illness... but this is not so. The spacey sensations indicate your mind
is opening up and expanding into new and more liberated ways of
thinking, feeling and being - you are starting to experience reality
outside the box of 3rd dimension (this is a good thing - you are just
Memory and speech is a function of the left hemisphere of the brain...
which is associated with worldly, horizontal, linear rational
"thinking". The higher vibrational energies tend to activate the right
hemisphere of the brain... which is associated with the spiritual,
transcendent, vertical, non-linear, irrational "feelings". Creating a
balance between these 2 hemispheres may involve a temporary diversion or
shift of your energies and attentions from off the "dominant" side... to
the "dormant". When the 2 sides are balanced, your memory and speech
should return to normal.
Change in Preferences or Personality
You may start to develop a distaste or dislike for the more mundane
things in life... such as trivial or argumentative conversations, sports
or other amusements and activities, certain kinds of music and
movies, drinking alcohol or smoking, synthetic medicines or
recreational drugs, your current job or profession, old hobbies and
interests, familiar haunts and comfortable habits, politics
and parties, national religious or cultural identities,
stereotypical attitudes or behaviors, meaningless sexual
relationships.... And your family, friends, partners or acquaintances...
you may now discover how little you have in common. All these changes
indicate that your energies and vibrations are no longer in alignment
with the old, and you are being pushed to let go and move on. You are
changing from the inside out, becoming a different person.
Losing a Grip on Attachments
During a healing session, so many extraordinary things are occurring
within your energy field and consciousness... a loosening and releasing
of the ego-minds comforts and attachments to pseudo-identities, behavior
patterns and coping mechanisms. The ego-mind (with its limited grasp on
the greater reality and higher truths) cannot understand any sort of
change, and communicates this to you as fear, confusion and anxiety.
This is the egos way of trying to force you to constrict the flow of the
higher consciousness, vibrations and energies and shut it (and you) down
and off. When you sense this happening, breath deeply and relax. Trust
that you are ok and this is all for your highest and best good (and will
pass). Know that all these old identifications and ways of being must go
in order to clear a space for the new and more powerful beautiful wise
true loving you to come in and take over.
As you let go of those internal pseudo-identities, behavior
patterns and coping mechanisms of your ego-mid... and as those external
people, places and things that you were so attached to (but did not
serve your highest truths) start to fall away... you may feel depressed
and disillusioned with your life. Everything that is not in alignment
must be shifted out of the way if the "new self" is to fully come in.
Yet... until this "new self" comes in and is integrated and grounded,
the emptiness felt in this "in between" state can be difficult to
tolerate. Be patient - this will shift in due time. Just as a fetus
takes time in the womb to be nurtured, grow and birth, so too does it
take time for the "Christ Self" to be born as you.
Animals and Children
Because animals and children have so few filters and resistances, they
are often much more sensitive and responsive to higher energies and
vibrations. As the healing is working on and with you, children and
animals may become more attracted to you (I think its that these healing
energies reminds them of home).
When doing this (or any) healing work, the only time you must be
particularly aware and cautious around other people is when you feel you
are processing out and releasing some particularly dense dark energies
and entities. In this case, it is probably wise to spend that time
alone. If anyone was in or around your space who does not have a strong
intact energy field (esp those who are empathic and have little sense of
boundaries, be it animals, children or adults) they run the risk of
picking up the stuff you are releasing.
Electronic Mumbo Jumbo
Any sort of electronic equipment (light bulbs and computers) may be
jumbled up or shorted out if they are within your energy field when a
particularly high vibrational electro-magnetic energy is channeling
through (interesting phenomenon when it happens, unless it's your
computer that crashes... so make sure you have a surge protector). This
may be rectified or avoided by spending more time grounding your
hands and feet into the earth (and less time around impersonal
Here are a few signals that indicate the presence of higher energies and
Buzzing, clicking, humming, roaring or ringing sounds, tingling
sensations, goose bumps, hair standing on end, floral aromas, feelings
of expansion or contraction, heaviness or lightness, numbness or
paralysis in any part of the body, electric-like pulses or surges of
energy, spinning, vibrations or movement of any kind.
Worst Case Scenarios
You may find yourself in situations you feared
your pet Fluffy or Fido escapes from your house
you are laid off or fired from a well paying job
your bank account is on empty or overdrawn
your car breaks down or is stolen
your spouse runs off with the kids and best friend
you lose your home and live on the street
there is an illness or death in the family
you are mugged or raped
someone you love or you gets a terminal disease
None of this is pretty, but in time I pray
you will find the silver lining to these dark clouds
and Just like Jesus transcended his cross,
so to will you, that is His Promise.
Abandoned Lost and Lonely
You may feel that you do not belong here,
alienated, isolated, estranged and misunderstood,
not fitting in to work, home, culture or community.
You may feel as if you are done with life,
with no purpose or meaning,
and you may feel like ending it all
(understandable, but not the answer).
Your life is no accident.
You are here for profound mysterious reasons,
the completion of which often takes years.
When life seems empty and bleak,
be patient and hang on.
This is a temporary phase that will shift.
Once you go deeper you will find yourself here.
Unexpected events occur so unusual and unreal.
Old friends are gone, strangers now friends.
Plans made in the past are feeling not right
suddenly you are making surprising new choices.
You are finally breaking free of old patterns
experiencing new ways of thinking feeling and being
...and this is just the start...
Let it happen as it wants to...
not how you judge or think it should be.
Things will shift and change in their own way.
If you try to control - this will block the flow
and make your process ever so much longer.
If you try to resist - this will use up life energy
and make your process ever so much harder
(and make you very tired).
Give yourself space and time to
"be" with what is happening
alone or with those who are understanding.
Don't blame or project onto others...
everything you feel is your responsibility.
and don't forget - we are here for you.
