As we move through the higher stages in consciousness, we notice more areas that require remedial clean-up.
The process of opening itself cleans out a good deal of the past and if we’ve been proactive with healing, a lot of baggage will have been shed. But there can still be various things to clean up. And once we shift to the cosmic, we have all the shared to work with too.
And yet, because of our own history and gifts, we’ll be more aware of and good at facilitating certain kinds of clean-up. We’ll be more aware and effective in some areas of the cosmic over others.
The qualities of the different chakras change markedly as we clean things up, from constrained to flowing. For example, the heart chakra typically has a dark, defensive crust that gets shattered and cleared. But there is also the higher octave Hridaya opening and the whole Fleur-de-Lis across the chest, usually post-awakening.
We can go from a deeply defended and repressed heart to an open flow, to unconditional love, to Divine love, and then live all that bodily. This is a greater than exponential scale.
And while the heart is a lovely example, the same is true for other centers. Each of them can bring beautiful benefits when they come more fully on-line. Profound rootedness, creative flow, power, and so forth.
This opening is beyond any limitations of personal energy as we embody the cosmic, then the divine.
Plus, each one of us is a unique expression of natural laws with skills and gifts that can be enhanced or come on-line through this process. The Yoga Sutra lists some of them but there are many other possibilities. In fact, the potential is limitless.
