Chakras: The Pathway to Enlightenment


The science of ayurveda introduces us to the different chakras of our system, a Sanskrit word for « wheel » or « disk », gives us the key for Enlightenment. Through their meaning, colors, symbols, we can embrace the whole history of humanity starting from its root toward its supreme realization we’re all walking toward.


The Mulhadara chakras (or root chakra) located at the base of the spine is the chakra of our fundament: it refers to our survival instincts, self preservation and security. During prehistoric ages, people’s first occupation was struggling to survive. All their activities were about eating, finding a grotto to protect themselves from dangerous animal’s attack or bad weather, and when the moment came, to protect their precious source of fire. You can say the Mulhadara is a “fight or flight” center.


To show how Mulhadara works if not combined to the consciousness of other chakras, we can take the example of the Middle age and Renaissance periods when conquerors around the world, crusaders or conquistadors, were fighting to gather new territories like Holly land and south America with tremendous violence. Other countries were the place of power struggles for the royal throne and wealth, killing or raping people without guilt.


Through centuries, humanity progressed to Svadhistana, our second orange chakra just below the navel. It connects us to others through feeling, desire, sensation, and movement. It represents our capability to exchange and interconnect with the others. This need lead people to the sexual liberalization in the 70’s: Woodstock and the use of the orange color during this period of time was the tangible representation of that desire to free the energy of Svadhistana chakra.


During the 80’s, we entered the Manipura chakra Era. This yellow solar plexus chakra represents, ego, identity and is oriented to self-definition. Women who wanted more recognition started to adopt a “male look” using fashionable ties and shoulder pads. Women entrepreneur became more numerous, self progression would be the motivation of everyone in companies for both male and female corporate associates. Ambition, self realization were the mottos: people just worked to achieve some personal goals through one rule, “Me first” …


Have you noticed how purple color overflowed the market this year? For who knows the chakra color system it is surprising to talk about purple color instead of Anahata’s beautiful esmerald green color… But shifting from  Manipura to Anahata, from ego to heart and Love, to generosity, non judgment, non violence, requires motivation for self-transformation and spirituality which is actually the symbol of purple color. Purple was also present during the 70’s when desire to enter the “New age” .

Anahata is a crossroads chakra, it’s very exigent and very simple at the same time: with loving ourselves and being in Peace, we allow ourselves to Love Unconditionally.


Anahata is also the “filter” for the Kundalini energy that climbs up from one chakra to another one through the spine and transforms it into a subtle healing energy, up to Vishudha chakra through the narrow space of our neck. Thanks to the  filter of Anahata, the blue and silver communication chakra will express our thoughts in a compassionated way.   


This energy full of kindness will continue its path until arriving to Ajna chakra, or the 3rd eye chakra in the middle of the eyebrows (pituitary gland). It’s the place where our Yin and Yang energies meet: we then become more aware of our being and of our Universe. Ajna is the seat of our 6th sense that sees intuitively. Through it, we can use our insight and psychic skills. Nowadays, we can see more and more children around us with very strong intuitive skills and large consciousness:  some schools are aware of this phenomenon and accompany them with adapted programs. Some of them are known as “indigo”or “crystal children” because of the color of their Aura, sometimes similar to Ajna chakra.


The run of the Kundalini energy will eventually end to our crown chakra: Sahasrara and its “1000 petals” tinted in marvelous combination of colors like purple (spirituality) white (purity) gold and silver (Guides and Angelical realms)…

These “receptors” connect us to our Higher Self, to Upper Forces. When everybody will reach the level of Sahasrara through  unconditional Love, wisdom, all-knowingness, and bliss will be reachable for everyone. That state of pure Enlightenment is called also the Nirvana in ancient texts. Even if we’re not there yet, humanity is taking quantum leaps, evolving more rapidly than in the past centuries which is great.


Each progress we make in our personal path toward Enlightenment is a help for our kinds: the more numerous we will be to raise our vibratory frequency, the better it is for the collective consciousness of our planet. From 1952 to 1958, in the island of Koshima in Japan, scientists established a theory which is called “The Hundredth Monkey”: the scientists trained monkeys to wash their sweet potatoes before eating them. After a certain number of monkeys trained, the scientists noticed that the monkeys on Takasakiyama island, a neighbor island of Koshima, started to wash their food also without being trained for it or having any connections with the trained monkeys … This experience shows us how the energy of a group can have effect on others attitude…


Everything that happens in this world finds its Source into upper world and unseen forces, using them for humanity’s Enlightenment, through our free will.

Like the lotus flower and its root in ooze becomes a beautiful flower with the help of the sunrays, such is human being and humanity in a holistic state: grounded into earth but push by a thirst for Light and Upper Forces to be able to grow…


OM… This post is dedicated to the 7 billions of Lotus jewels around our beautiful planet walking toward Light.

  1. A wonderful post Rita. I had not thought or was aware of applying chakras to humanity. Eye opener.

    Regarding the Hundreth Monkey theory, I had read long time back that this was the case with rat in a maze. Experiments were being conducted across the world on a particularly difficult maze which the rats had to solve. Once one group succeded other rats in other countries also started solving it.
