If the crown is our divine inheritance, after humbly submitting to divine will and receiving Universal grace and blessings, the Ajna chakra is the chakra of the Indigoes and Global Unification. The Pituitary is the master gland that is activated and controls the third eye known as the Ajna, and it is through divine wisdom that our dreaming enters the field of consciousness for the healing of our planet.
Scientifically speaking, the indigo is a reflection of MRIs that have shown in catscans the brains of meditating masters. They have discovered that in deep trance like states the brain’s energy unifies at a central point and, rather than emitting heat, cools and becomes blue. All this blue energy localizes in the center of the hemispheres, in essence, shutting down the left logical fact gathering mind and the right creative story telling mind so that the mind of a person in deep trance is no longer emitting frequencies but receiving.
The Pineal gland, which is the meditating blue pearl, is centrally located, not only between the two hemispheres of the brain, but also at the apex where adjoining vibrations collected by the 3D situated ear drum receives vibration that is transmitted into pictures by the pineal gland, which does in fact have rods and cones like an eye ball, hence the description of it being the third eye. Although, for me, it has come to actually be our ONE eye that is collecting information from the ONE source that is our Mother, the blue pearl of our solar system. Microcosm, macrocosm.
I have heard people in the past voice concern that secret information is being taught and that people are misusing it rather than harnessing the collective power inherent within all of us to affect the human dream and create change. I would like to note, however, that obviously the creator of the Universe is smarter than that, and, if the information can now be utilized, it is still a product of divine grace that unifies, through the network ansibles, those whose hearts are pure and focused on the collective dream of humanity for the soul purpose of fulfilling the great plan, which is, to us, a Great Mystery.
For me, it is impossible to discuss the properties of any chakra, or wheel of knowledge, without the gates of connection that interweave within us like a sacred geometric point of light grid. Just as the crown is difficult to discuss without discussion of the Jahlandhara bhanda, the ajna chakra is difficult to discuss without Jiva Bhanda. Jiva bhanda is the correlating spot for the pineal/pituitary glands located at the roof of the mouth. Touching the tip of the tongue to the roof is said to activate these two glands which then emit frequencies that either open the gate up towards the heavens to receive information, or, as the chin bows forward compressing the thyroid, ignites our etheric hearts in response to our heart intentions, or prayers, transmits information. It is a signal to both ourselves and those connected to us, “now, here.” In between these points is the zeal point which connected to the thymus, accessed during tapping. The thymus is interrelated with the base of the skull, or occipital ridge. Jiva bhanda, then, is the activation of the dreaming center in relation to reset us in patterns of truth and wholeness.
In ancient people it is said that the area at the base of the skull was more pronounced and developed in relation psychic connections. These psychic connections become the transmitters of information utilzing our memeories, bloodlines, connections to the earth via our feet, our hearts via right relations to others, and our spiritual connection to our soul group.
All of this is a very elaborate way of describing the powerful network of connections that we are. In essence, if you consciously extend those 72,000 nadis that weave through our bodies and connect them to points outside ourselves, dissolving the barrier of our skin, through intention, prayer, belief and focus, and connect to the trees, stones, birds, and ancient water molecules of information that are in between everything in order to create an ocean of energy that transcends time, through what scientists have called phantom DNA.
The water is a molecular conductor of information that is stored in spirit energy recycling around the planet for all of time. Hence, the saying that water is life. Water is also one of the elements that contains the soul of the earth and the vital essence of our own bodies. So, for ajna and body health, drink a lot of water and protect water sources. Do not drink water with fluoride or sodas as they calcify your pineal gland.
The magical pineal gland we have been discussing that connects us to the cycle of life on our magnificent Mother, gives us all a collective blueprint and understanding of why we are here remembering ourselves and our true nature at this exact time in history.
Some of us were born indigos, also referred to as old souls, and have been paving the way for remembrance for decades. There are some indigos who have passed into a different reality and are currently interceding and interpreting information for us from spirit world through human experience and, vice versa, are communicating and translating the human experience for the spirit world. These beings are the ascended masters and it is possible to call upon them and remember whatever it is they know.
There are also indigos on the planet that range in capabilities but who I will refer to as the medicine people. They are people who are now here remembering themselves because whatever healing practice they have mastered, they have accessed their pineal sent themselves forward in time fully connected to memory and their knowledge is the medicine or the healing of the world.
Not to be pigeonholed, I do believe it the responsibility of indigos to work through their karma, learn their lessons and evolve to a more purified crystalline state, like their modern day, younger generation of star children, new evolved, perfected souls or crystal children, who lack the innate wisdom passed down from the ancestors, so work together. We need each other.
There are many medicine people and in order for us to complete our cycle of evolution, crystallization, purification, and transformation of our cells, we must come back to the beautiful responsibility we have towards ourselves, this planet, the universe and future generations to let go of suffering, and attachments in order to dream a better world.
What is the difference between denial of the shadow world and our own shadow inclinations with grounded stable heart centered dreaming?
The Hawaiians describe this process as Hunaism, the sacred secret. They describe the process of identification of the victim mentality that perpetuates the cycle of suffering much the way one would describe the tending of weeds in the garden. As we pull the visions and dreams of the weeds from our mental environment we are better able to locate the seeds of truth that transcend culture, nationality, and religion. In truth the divine creative spirit that put this ever expanding Universe in motion before human beings ever conceived a metaphor, or religion, to describe and capture the essence of the divine love that manifested us. In this belief system, protecting and living for the health of the soul seed is our Kuleana, or divine responsibility to future generations.
This is the stuff of our meditations and prayers. Meditate upon and water these seeds with light in order to enlighten our planet. The most powerful determination of the health of meditation is the question: Does my decision, action, or thought celebrate the gift of life was implanted in me?
This is the state of gratitude.
Rilke once wrote that it is our divine responsibility to imprint this world so deeply upon us that it may rise again. So then, what we focus on, or what we love, is being rebirthed day after day after day. Whatever life we are living right now is the result of thoughts we followed two months ago, last month, two weeks ago, two days ago, last night his morning and the second you began to read this article and made it this far.
If we honor the gift of life that has been given to us then we will:
1. Feed and nourish our bodies with natural foods from organic sources.
2. Protect, purify and drink spring water.
3. Honor all beings alive, animate or inanimate, on the planet as the Mother’s children.
4. Participate in recreation that uplifts our spirit and leaves our bodies refreshed, rejuvenated, and healthy.
5. Meditate, pray and give thanks.
6. Embody our highest selves and follow a path of service as an outward display of our gratitude for life.
The change that is taking place is an act of deliberate, personal, change and release from destructive addictions in order to recreate the world in which we live. It requires courage, faith, patience and combined will, but this is what we were born to do. We are the ones we have been waiting for, so act and stop waiting for the future. The future is now and starts, as Martin Luther King once said, with a dream.
Let all spiritual warriors unite in the face of everything to the contrary and see freedom, not only for ourselves but our children that they may be freed from the tyranny of injustice that has taken from us the most inalienable rights, that of enjoying the glorious freedom of the children of God as we live the real life we were meant to live here on this gift of a planet in order to glorify the ways of providence who did allow us the opportunity to unite again in our hearts to the love that has existed since times immortal and live with the belief in our hearts that we can co-exist in peace, that we can all give up whatever is cause for division, hatred and crime in order for us to unite under one cause, dreaming life for all humanity in harmony with this mother we call Earth, and give thanks to the Mother.
In talking about the energetic system of the body and the wheels that spin along the spine, concentrated where our organs need the most amount of vital energy, people often break the chakras up in order of importance from the base up or by color. For me, however, I like to think that the entire system of energy is focused on elevating our consciousness towards our divine inheritance, realizing our divinity. This is often portrayed as being anointed in spirit and receiving our crown, the blessing of grace.
With that, I have often been faced with the question: If we are the children of God and we have a divine inheritance, what does it truly mean to receive our crown and for what purpose are we blessed with the opening of our brain to receive information to carry out whatever is necessary?
When I consider this question a man comes to mind, Solomon, who, when praying to understand how to use his energy in serving God, asked first for wisdom. With this, I think it is impossible to consider the crown without considering the bhanda that links our human heart and desires with our humility in asking for guidance.
Jalandhara bhanda, is the act of bowing the head, allowing the crown to enter into the 3 foot wide electromagnetic field of our physical heart space. In bringing the chin down to the chest we are entering the communication with our high heart, or our soul connection as seed to the flower of consciousness. In connecting to our soul, we are also connecting to the light in us that is eternally bound to the light, or enlightenment, of God.
In essence, we can receive grace, change and transform instantaneously, in one heartfelt, deep experiential moment of realization draw all the energy up and have a life of miracles, wherein we are directed to the places either inside ourselves or on the planet where healing is most needed in the form of our most embodied and connected selves. In simple terms, be exactly your truest selves where you will be most loved and a healing presence for all around you. In sharing the wisdom of our transformation and consecration we can be living examples, or Bodhisattvas, and teach how to integrate the divine experience with our physical one.
Our divine inheritance, then, is our inherent connection to God source energy. To contemplate the awesomeness of the Divine intelligence that governs and orchestrates the Universe is to come to the beginning of wisdom and to recognize that there is a purpose that is grander than our own life span. That the opening of the crown gives us only a glimpse at the Divine as it spans through time and space eternally connecting all beings seen and unseen with unconditional love that permeates at the smallest cellular structure and holds it all together like an invisible web, that we can only imagine this type of connection and intricate intelligence that extends out into the ever expanding Universe.
This contemplation at the level of order in the rotating planets gives us confidence so that we can surrrender our own thinking ability to a higher power and allow ourselves to be guided. This guidance system is available to all beings. It does, however, require practice.
For me and those who practice yoga, or union with their spiritual nature, the energetic practices of consecration, prayer and meditation, clear the mind, and make it possible to hear the voice of our highest selves and, without attachment or expectation to results, faithfully follow through.
This way of living is far different than the linear one most of us have grown up with. We, as a race, are in a very special time that the Native Americans like to call the hour of dreaming.
I believe that most have recognized that need to transform our lives, live in harmony with the earth and each other, take care and steward the earth and to do so with the faith that if we live in right relation to our Creator God and allow the Creatress Goddess to move us, we can become reconciled with the original dream for humanity. That the course of evolution is to become enlightened, or soulful, and live wisely.
Living in the dream then releases us into a world of immediate change. We could spend years moving slowly through our wounds, process, excuse and forgive, delve into our shadows or we can just allow these changes to take place in our thoughts, behaviors and release addictions to any distractions or barriers that are preventing us from living in union with the Divine that lives in union with our light.
Therefore, rather than taking the time to climb Jacob’s ladder from the base to the crown, we can focus on the crown and pray for grace to adjust our way of being and then imagine it has happened instantaneously, awakening in the morning to our true selves, forgetting our old routine and just picking up as though we are the person we have always wanted to be.
In giving our lives over to the Divine in order to come into contact with the seed potential we are meant to embody in this life we can experience union in this very moment. As the Buddha said, we are all golden and filled with light. The question of change then becomes, what do we love more? The practices and life experiences that create more light or are we addicted to patterns of destruction, sadness and chaos born of man’s blind and selfish thinking?
The crowning moment of our existence is choosing light and our self-realization is blessed by Divine grace when we begin to cultivate awareness on it and meditate upon it. We live as we imagine and if we choose our divinity it increases in and around us.
People have asked me what it is like to live like a yogi, owning very little, having only what I need, being moved about the planet and asked to help whoever it is I am called to help.
The only way to describe it is that every day is a prayer, a call and response. It is a willingness to pause, ask a question and listen for the answer. That all the years of asana practice have taught me to be aware that my feet are moving to the right and then move the rest of my body with it, allow the energy to propel me forward so that I come face to face with a synchronistic moment.
It is a life of miracles and an expression of gratitude. It is a life spent in faith based on the way life continues to pulse and change for the better around me as I change and transform with it. It is staring into the void, where I have been on this path long enough to not be in charge of the story line so it is impossible to pick it up and truly it is a mystery to me what will happen next.
That my Divine charge as a human being is to know that I am enough, and then move from a place of confidence when I am transported to places and people in time that surpass my expectations. That when I get there, I know it is both the meditation of my heart and a source higher than my Self that has created the situation.
There are times when I experience suffering as result of losing people, places, beliefs, or experiences that I feel a deep attachment to, but in the end I have come to know that I will receive blessings if I allow myself to move with the divine flow towards what end I still do not know. I do not think any of us ever really do, but if we can have enough magical experiences in our life, then we can begin to understand the perfection of life and the lessons we learn.
So that, in the humility of bowing our crown, we are given the exquisite pleasure of daily affirming the existence of something outside ourselves and, to this, we can give all our fears, doubts, and sadnesses about our own lives and those whose reality is governed not by the dream but the nightmare, or even the state in between. This empathy then directs energy towards what needs the most amount of love and, though I cannot see into the future, I know that Divine grace is in charge and that gives me peace that transcends all human circumstance and connects me to the web of life that is divinity.
