I’ve written before about our chakras or energy centres. The main 7 are introduced in the bliss body, bringing life to some forms. This means all beings in our universe share the same fundamental 7. And without them, the form remains inert. This is why artificial sentience will never happen although it may be approximated. Technology is missing life force.
The first 7 chakras are mirrored on each side of the body for a total of 21 major and secondary chakras.
The high heart (soul thrill) chakra at the clavicle (between heart and throat) seems unique. It appears to be a “committee” with representatives from the other chakras. And of course there’s more smaller chakras.
The devata body is an expression of the cosmic body – the one body of all bodies. These devata manage the functioning of all bodies in all time simultaneously. More manifest, and each of the chakras is given 50 devata. They are clustered together in a sphere around each energy centre and manage the flow of energy and intelligence, primarily through the nadi system. (this also relates to the 50 sounds of the Sanskrit alphabet, 7×7+1)
Hierarchically, the crown chakra manages the other chakras. 50 devata per chakra x 20 other chakras = the 1,000 “petals” of the crown chakra. That also means 2,000 devata managing the primary energy system.
Key is the devata work together through relationship. Their harmonies bring us a fuller, smoother experience of life.
The chakra databanks radiate from each devata. When they’re in harmony, the databanks are vibrant, even and smooth and free of crud. But for many people, some databanks are in a more inertial or repressed state. Others are more agitated which can lead to those they’re connected with also being repressed or agitated. This shifts out of smooth flow, creating eddies.
This is analogous to a social group. If you’re at a party with 50 people and someone gets agitated, it’s common for several others to react to that. Soothe the one and all are soothed.
Part of the healing process in group consciousness is to bring these devata all back into aliveness and harmony. This is happening in layers, so a relationship can seem to be healed, then another value comes to the surface. This is much like peeling the onion of our personal resistances.
The equanimity of awakening gives a stable platform to soothe and harmonize. What can then arise is the magic of soma, the refined substance that feeds and empowers the devata. Then things can get really juicy.
