'Spiritual Psychic Health' Articles
Spiritual and psychic health. This is a very complex topic, and this series of posts will explore all the chakras from the base consciousness to the higher self. You don’t have one brain, you have three. The enteric nerve plexus, the cardiac nerve plexus and the brain in the head.
Root consciousness is the first chakra. It’s the first chakra and all higher chakras stem from it. Root is first and last. At the second chakra, you begin to be aware of the big picture. One of the most common breaks in the charka system is between the first and second. Long explanation made short, trust your gut. It’s at the third that we see the earliest level of what we would consider human awareness. The part of awareness I am speaking of is opinion. The second charka feels. The third chakra chooses.
At the fourth chakra, we experience the first traces of true love, also called passion or devotion. The heart is the seat of our perception of wholeness. The fifth center or chakra is the neck. It’s the translator of everything internal or external. Being the keeper of the Book of Life, it serves as the bridge between the heart and mind. You feel empathy at the heart level. You achieve comprehension at the head level, but understanding is at the throat. The sixth or third eye chakra is not a single chakra as much as a unified field generated by a set of chakras. It’s the linking point between your mind and your brain. The primary function is the projection of your perceptual filters onto your outside experience. Our thinking is just a long string of special effects. Our mind, or soul if you prefer, is the author of causes, or can be if we awaken to it.
The crown chakra is the window onto the infinite vista that is the whole universe. Your mind can realize things outside the body. What is necessary is integration. Realizing the universe within. The more integrated the entire being becomes, the fewer boundaries you perceive in the outer world. It is all the logos.

Today, we are talking about spiritual and psychic health. It’s the first class in a string I intend to do, but not necessarily consecutively. We will have more classes like this as it’s a very complex topic. Today, specifically, we will explore why people aren’t aware that they are alive. Long story short, you aren’t aware that you are alive. You are aware that you are aware. A sort of Cartesian cultural meme that states, “I think therefore I am.” So Descartes got that we are aware, but not that we are alive? Exactly. Is it normal for that awareness… Seek More
We have some horrible delusions. They create some serious malfunctions, both in our coping skills and our biological processes, as you cannot actually separate these two things. They are one and the same dynamic. The first delusion is the privileged position of what we are calling thought. The unfocused tendency to try to force our sense impressions to synthesize what we consider a believable picture. I think therefore I am, or so I thought. If you thought that, you were in fact wrong. Your ability to think arises from a level that precedes anything we consider thought. It is the… Seek More
The idea that our consciousness works on a dynamic of seeking pleasure and avoiding pain is the second delusion. People believe that life is about choices, and although this makes thinking easier, it quickly becomes an obsession to the point that they think life or death is a choice. The more choices we have, the less freedom we have? Exactly. Your base consciousness has only one drive, to live. There is no life and death, success and failure, none of this. This is why they say hope springs eternal. The life force won’t accept anything other than life, painful or… Seek More
Shall we go into how base consciousness is mirrored in thinking consciousness, even if distorted? First and primarily it surfaces in our vigilance patterns. This is why you think that people, the world, or God, are watching you. Your life force prompts you to be aware, and to seek the realities that support its growth and well being. These get confused though. Is that not a basic instinct, to be aware to avoid being prey? A primal instinct? It is, but it’s more than avoiding being prey. Your base consciousness has a broader range of awareness than what people would… Seek More
I would very much like to be rid of some of the thoughts that occur to me at times. You cannot be rid of a thought by thinking. You cannot be rid of a thought by avoiding thought in any way. This is why a lot of new age thinking fails so miserably for people. I believe that is a metaphysical principle. We always add to balance? Yes. Everything is always addition. Death is only a process of addition that pushes you outside of your current energy domain. The equation grows too big to fit your current parameters. Memory accumulates.… Seek More
Does our curiosity mean we are listening? Curiosity is exactly that. If you are curious, you are listening. If you see a bee labouring in your yard and you watch it because you are curious, or you see an ant doing something on a tree and watch it react to being interrupted, just to see what it will do, you are listening. Like watching a dog and cat interact, because you know that they really do have their own way about them, that is listening. The range of things that we can attend to is limitless, but we have to… Seek More
Today, we are discussing the sacral or second chakra. Whereas the first is everything primitive and impulsive and alive, the second is the level at which our more complicated perceptions are formed. The enteric nerve plexus (that centers more or less around the stomach and intestines) is almost as sophisticated as the brain. The cardiac nerve plexus (heart), as well as the brain, actually take their pattern from this first center of awareness. You don’t have one brain, you have three, and just as the brain in your head has three parts, the other two brains also have three parts.… Seek More
Perhaps an interesting related point on spiritual and psychic health. The left hemisphere of the brain cannot tell the difference between facts and convincing ideas. If an idea is logically cognisant, the left brain automatically believes it. This is why the root chakra seems to be so indiscriminating, and why many men revert to that level of awareness when they can’t resolve the first and second chakra conflict. This explains how logic can result in such insane actions at times. No fact checking with the other half. The wise people will tell you to check with your heart or gut… Seek More
The root charka doesn’t learn. It just is. It’s the root of the natural, formative order of your being. The second chakra actually learns. It’s your very first center of learning, and it becomes aware in utero. This is why our parents psyches are so seemingly ingrained in our consciousness. It’s not explained by your genetics, and it’s not explainable if you believe that your brain is the only seat of consciousness. That’s scary. Indeed, it is scary. Your memory goes back much further than you have allowed yourself to be aware of, and the seat of species memory is… Seek More
Not only do we try to understand our consciousness out of context, but we actually insist on trying to see it backward and inside out. Does your mind make sense to you, friends? It often appears to be crazy. The world doesn’t make sense. Everything makes sense to me. I think if things made sense then we wouldn’t be the curious creatures we are. We love mysteries, even if there is no solution, we can make one up. We try to see our minds as if the truth originates from the top down and from the senses inward, but do… Seek More
